College Application Crash Course

September 21, 2019, 9am-3pm

Location: Appalachian State University

Reich College of Education Room #317

 

The college application process is one of the most stressful times for high school students. Allowing rising seniors the opportunity to complete the Common Application prior to the beginning of senior year, without the pressure of classes, sports, and other obligations will ensure a more directed and thoughtful application. The Common Application Boot Camp will offer students an experience where they can develop the major components of the college application with the help of experienced educational professionals. Our hands-on guidance will help students start senior year off ahead of the pack when it comes to the application process!

During the program, students will:

  • Prepare the Common Application
  • Prepare a personal statement/main essay
  • Strategize responses to common supplemental essay prompts
  • Receive analysis of individual college application list, ensuring appropriate list of Reach, Target and Safety choices

 

Criteria:

This program is designed for rising seniors who are planning to apply for college admission during the upcoming academic year. The majority of work will be computer-based. To ensure a successful experience, student will be required to complete pre-work prior to the first meeting. Students should be prepared to work hard during the program and be engaged actively throughout the experience. While ample guidance will be available, successful completion of the program will require students to demonstrate independence and initiative to meet program goals and expectations.
