Checking in on Summer 2014 Crash Courses

Can you believe it is already almost the end of July?! This summer is flying by. We’re in the midst of our third week of College Application Crash Courses and have worked with some amazing students thus far. We are so proud of all of the hard work they are putting in and they are putting together some incredible essays.  As students finish their course and share some of their experience and work with their parents, we check in with them to see what they thought of the course. Here are excerpts from two recent emails, both from parents with students who have been in our Crash Courses this summer.

I would like to commend you on your program. It is absolutely amazing that an 18 year old teenage male can attend a 5 day class from 9 to 4 and only come home with positive comments about the course. WOW! He is so relieved to have his college essays behind him. The process of writing and critiquing his essays was an empowering process which he will be able to utilize for a lifetime. He enjoyed the class and feels he has control of the application process. As a mother of two going to college at the same time, your course allows me to be a mom and not nag them about getting essays written and applications completed. I am a Speech-Language Pathologist with my own private practice, but I also have the burden of fighting Lyme Disease and Malaria so I do not have much extra energy for all of the college stress. Thank you so much for simplifying the process for me as a parent and for empowering my kids to be self sufficient!

I am very pleased with the outcome of the class. Going in I was nervous that she would be jet lagged upon her return from Spain and wouldn’t make the investment in the class I hoped for. I was much relieved after speaking to her and seeing the results. Not only did she put in the time and effort she actually enjoyed it! She loved working with you. She actually said that signing her up for the class was the best decision we ever made. Bottom line I am very pleased with the class outcome and think this was some of the best money I ever spent. A great outcome and stress reliever for the entire family!
