Applying to college is stressful, and nothing causes more stress among applicants than the personal statement. In this era of escalated competition, changing rules, and shortened timelines, a good personal statement can get you noticed. But what makes an essay good? What are admissions officers looking for (or hoping to avoid)?

During our two-day, intensive boot camp, you will discover what it takes to write a successful personal statement. By breaking down the different styles of essays available and brainstorming potential topics, our experts will debunk many of the myths surrounding college essays and, hopefully, diminish some of the anxiety involved in their creation.

As a group, we will examine the various guidelines to essay writing and explore the multiple approaches you can take. Then we will engage each of you individually, guiding you to find the story that best represents you and polishing it until it truly makes you shine.

At a minimum, we hope that you will leave the boot camp with a well-developed essay topic and a solid outline that you can follow to completion. Writing is a very personal process, and each student will approach it differently. Some of you may be able to produce a final draft by the end of the two days, while others may still be gathering your thoughts and need a little additional time to write.

Unlike other essay boot camps, that cut off support once the camp is finished, we will keep the advice window open for a period of 10 days following the conclusion of the program. During this time, our team will answer any questions you may have and help revise any drafts you submit. Our goal is that by removing the pressure of having to write under strict time constraints, you will end up with more thoughtful, meaningful, and successful personal statement.
