Testimonials from previous workskops:

  • "Just being able to ask any questions as they came up. Brainstorming activities really helped. Running through the Common App- especially the activities section."
  • "The boot camp was amazing and I’m so glad to have gotten quite a bit of stress out of the way. The program would not work without Jen and her spectacular personality. Overall, it was a spectacular class and not even close to a waste of time."
  • "I really liked the help with brainstorming ideas for the essay and the individual help I got for my writing. I also liked going through the entire application and filling it out together."
  • "I liked how much time we had to only focus on our essay. The feedback helped so much- mostly the one-on-one time. I also liked finishing and reviewing the activities section."
