This 3 day camp is designed to give students entering their senior year a head start on their Common Application.
Each day students will work with a college counselor, and leave having completed a necessary part of their Common App.
- Day 1 (Monday, 8/19) focuses on creating an account and completing the fields of the application, with special attention being paid to the activities section and resume creation.
- Day 2 (Tuesday, 8/20) will have students organizing and drafting their supplemental essays. These prompts are released August 1 and are unique for each institution.
- Day 3 (Wednesday, 8/21) will be spent on the main Common App essay, also known as the personal statement. Students will receive help with brainstorming and creating drafts, and will get feedback from current college admissions counselors.
Please note that there is a fee for this camp of $50 per day, or $129 for the 3 part camp. While days can be purchased separately, the most comprehensive essay support is provided by attending the whole camp.
