How will your child answer the question, “Why should we take YOU compared to these 5,000 other applicants with the same grades and test scores?

The November Sprint Program is designed to help your child stand out against thousands of competitor-applicants like a diamond at a coal convention... maximize their chances of getting  into their "Dream College" that they're dying to attend... helping them create polished, RIVETING, stand-out college applications and essays that resonate with each admissions officer that reads them...

...and without YOU screaming, threatening or otherwise lifting a finger!

Picture how great it would feel to know that your child completed his applications and essays in a stress-free manner...

...and magically submitted them to a balanced, strategic list of colleges eager to roll out the red carpet and admit him!

Applying to college ain't what it used to be, with rampant grade inflation that makes it damn near impossible for admissions officers to determine how a child will perform in college...

...NOT TO MENTION mind-numbingly similar, even suspicious (thanks Lori and Felicity!) extracurriculars such as service trips, volunteering and clubs, glowing teacher and guidance counselor letters of recommendation plastered all over today's college applications!

It's not easy for an admissions officer to know what your child is REALLY bringing to the table.  

Nor is it a piece of cake for your poor kiddo to persuade his admissions officer that he deserves to be admitted.

Your child must state his case via a manner of writing never-before undertaken, unrecognizable to your average English teacher, and far different than any other writing assignment he encountered in school.

Are you wondering what makes your child different?

How will he stand out and tell his story, the "closing argument" that convinces an admissions officer to roll out the red carpet and invite him to the exclusive party, behind the velvet ropes?

That's what kids' essays and applications must do.  They are the last, best chance at persuading the admissions committee that your child is THE ONE.

Specialized “Insider” Expertise to Fast-Track Your Child to College Success

Your child will complete her essays and applications quickly and efficiently, because she won't have any doubts about what direction to go. 

She won't have to wonder "Is this what admissions officers are looking for?" or stress out because "I have nothing to say!", because we will pinpoint what  should be stricken, which should be amplified and when to change directions on an essay or application.

This is an INCREDIBLE, unique advantage and opportunity.

The Bottom Line

You'll have confidence and clarity, because we have helped hundreds of students -and advised on  thousands of college essays - in our 19+ years in college advising.

Contrast this with your English teacher’s background or even that of other college essay advisors, who NEVER SET FOOT inside of a Top 25 college’s admissions office.  They are not “Insiders.”

Let’s be honest: they are merely GUESSING about what goes into a college essay.  Are you willing to risk your child's college future on their hunches?

In contrast, our experts.  And zero guesswork.
