Student Feedback

I learned a lot more information about the specifics of the college essay writing and application process that I had no idea about...I think my chances of getting into a better school are significantly higher than if I did not take the class, like at least 200% more. One of THE MOST IMPORTANT things I learned from this class is just how time consuming it is to write these essays. I’m really glad that I learned that, and now I can start planning accordingly. I have heard many of my friends ask me why I’m starting so early, but in reality I’m not starting early at all. I would 100% recommend this class to others. I think the most important thing is that I feel much more prepared than them. Even more importantly, the class is a great chance to start writing some essays as soon as possible, and show you what you have to get into. I would tell others that they should definitely take this class, because it will get them started earlier, and they will be much less stressed in the long run. Also I would recommend this class because the teacher has so much experience and knowledge, and is great to talk to! Thanks for being a great teacher! - T Wang, Rising 12th Grade, TJHSST

At the beginning of the course, I had my doubts on how I can write a meaningful common app essay in just 8-10 hours. However, there is a reason the word “intensive” is embedded into the class name because it really was a very genuine and engaging process. The instructors care about the students on a deeper level so much so that at times, I felt like they were my close friend. Even though the class is just two hours a day, there are so many ideas and advice exchanged and it was overall a powerfully informative session. I left the class feeling as if I not only had a solid understanding of what to write, but also grasped new things about myself that I would have never been able to discover otherwise.                               - Jennifer Wu, Rising 12th Grade, Langley High School


I just wanted to thank you for helping me with my common app essay. Before the Bootcamp, I was going in totally irrelevant directions. Now, all of my college counselors at school say that they really like my essay and I like it myself, too. I can't imagine where I would be without your help.  - Teresa Li, 12th Grade, Greenhills School
