STUDENT TESTIMONIALS

I had a wonderful experience with the webinar. I took a lot of notes so the information will stay with me for a long time, and I enjoyed the overall tone of the sessions (i.e. not drab and monotonous). Out of everything that I learned, what stuck with me the most is that the essay is a way to show our human side on the application, and not a list of our accomplishments.

Thomas H | Disney II Magnet High School | Chicago IL

I really liked the webinar and thought it was very helpful to get people thinking. I feel like I have more clarity with the common app essays and am able to brainstorm more after learning about the expectations.

Jessica M | Walter Payton College Prep | Chicago IL

The most important thing I learned was how to write about myself. Although both of the hosts provided us with guidelines for structuring and editing our essays, they stressed the importance of non-judgement writing that allowed me to break from the analytical writing we learn in school. They employed a number of techniques, real-life examples, and advice about how to approach and follow through with our college essays.

Luke M | Lincoln Park High School | Chicago IL

I learned the value of a line of reasoning and the importance of having a story that is unique to you. I was very pleased with my experience and would likely attend another session. 

Elizabeth E. | Jones College Prep | Chicago IL

This Webinar was incredibly helpful. I am so happy I was able to receive this head start on college applications, and I feel far more prepared to tackle the next chapter of my life! The most important thing I learned was about being concise and commanding the reader's attention.

Joseph C. | Whitney M. Young High School | Chicago IL

The things that stood out the most from the webinar were that focusing on clarity is more important than fancy language and that choosing a topic is important. I really enjoyed participating in this webinar. I definitely have a long way to go when it comes to my own essay, but everything you both mentioned in your presentation has made me feel a lot more confident. 

Elena N. | Whitney M. Young High School | Chicago, IL

I had a great experience! The webinar was very informative and helpful. I was able to get started on my essay and receive helpful feedback, which I appreciate. If I had not registered for this webinar, I would still feel stressed and lost about my essay. All of the information and tools I learned allowed me to create the foundation of my essay.

Dear Parents,

We're so happy you decided to consider our College Essay Jump-Start Webinar.

We know it can help you and your student move positively forward

on the college admissions process.

First, we want you to know that you're not alone!

We received many inquiries from parents

just like you

who were frustrated because your student

  • doesn't know the tools to begin to write their college essay,  

  • isn't aware that the trick for making a WOW essay is to be a very good story teller, but more importantly....HOW to be a good story teller, 

  • their college choices are mostly test optional or blind and the essays has a become a major factor in the college admissions decision.

 

Essentially the college essay has you anxious, concerned and stuck

We get it!

We've seen this in our own clients and kids.

We were all feeling stuck and losing ground everyday because

applications need to be completed and getting stuck on the essay

can seem to put everything else on hold. 

AND, it's not even your fault.

As a family, you were on top of it,

ahead of the curve

and now you're trying to figure out how to keep your process moving forward

but didn't know where to go or what to do next and

your child is looking to you for some guidance. 

Being in this profession for 30+ years and

being faced with our own children looking for help,

we decided to share our knowledge and experience

about what helps and what works!

We wanted to move students and their parents away from feeling depressed

about what should be an exciting and positive moment.

We wanted to help them no longer feel stuck in this process.

For them to begin feeling hopeful about their future college and

empowered to move their application process forward.

 

That is why we created our

Common Application College Essay Jump-Start Webinar.  

Is your student anxious about completing the 

#1 stress producing college application task? 

If this all sounds like your family right now and you answered YES to this question,

then please consider registering your student today for our webinar!
