Day 1 Day 2 Day 3

- How to research colleges and build your college list

What You'll Leave With



Targeted College List


Strategic Personal Statement



Completed Common App

You will research colleges and generate a balanced list of "reach," "match," and "likely" colleges tailored to your competitiveness and your academic, geographic, extracurricular, lifestyle, and financial preferences

You will identify a strategic topic after reflecting on your life experiences, values, and goals. Then, you will draft and revise your personal statement (or other essay of your choice). 

You will draft and receive feedback on key sections of your Common Application, including Activities (where you describe 10 activities in order of importance), Testing (deciding which scores to include), and more.
