  College Application Boot Camp

Application Boot Camp
Summer 2017

Before you know it you will be embarking on the actual college application process.  The larger “process” started long ago with earning the best grades possible, taking the required standardized tests, and building the all-important college list, among other necessary hallmarks of getting ready for college admission.  Now, it is finally time to undertake the actual nuts and bolts of applying!!!!
 
As you can imagine, senior year is an exciting year.  It is also a very fast-paced, jam-packed year.  One of the ways to maximize the fun and minimize the stress is to spend some time over the summer getting a jump start on a few of the required tasks of completing college applications.  For that reason, we will be offering a four day college application boot camp.  The program will be offered twice, with identical programming for ease of scheduling. 
 
This four day college application boot camp is intended to provide both a macro-level view of the college application process and a space to begin the required elements of the application process.
