Nauseated at the inevitable prospect of screaming at your child all summer about college applications? Don't worry: "Your Kid Is OUR Project, Now!" Here's what you say yes to our 3-Day College Applications and Essays Bootcamp in our Glenwood Landing office:
Get expert instruction at what should go into each and every essay that "Sells," and what to leave out!
Over the course of the three day bootcamp, your child will produce a polished and effective Common Application essay draft, a completed Common Application and Activity Sheet that "sells," not "bores" and at least two supplemental essays!
Your child will leave the bootcamp with a schedule of what needs to be done, when. (As we went to press, there was a rumor circulating about surprise accountability follow-up calls to your child post-event.)
This is a WORKING, three-day session. Bootcampers will BRAINSTORM, DRAFT AND REDRAFT their essays until their eyeballs bleed! Just kidding about the eyeball stuff, but do NOT enroll if your child is just going to sit there like a lump, unwilling to roll up their sleeves and take care of business. We keep the maximum size super-small so that we can give personalized attention to everyone.
Time flies - before you know it Labor Day will be here and Senior Year will start. Our Bootcamp could be your child's LAST CHANCE to focus on college applications before they get back to school and wrapped up in regular classwork, clubs, sports, extra-curricular activities, socializing, etc. It's much better for everyone if you take care of this now, instead of stretching things out until Thanksgiving or beyond. Yuck!
"I needed help with my essays and I knew my English teacher would be useless. Thank you!"
"Thank you for your help with everything, especially the applications and essays!"
"Hi Andy, I just wanted to let you know that I was admitted to Stanford REA yesterday. Thanks to you and the rest of the team for all the help so far!"
"...the Cornell admissions person said that this was an incredibly competitive year and their applications really stood out! Guess who made all this possible? We are so grateful to you!"
"I know a lot of college planners who promise results but don't deliver. In your case, I got real results. Other parents thank me for recommending you. "
Clients pay between $5,000 to more than $20,000 to work personally with Andy and his team.
They fork these amounts over unblinkingly because of the RESULTS they achieve - admission to the top colleges in the country, not to mention generous merit scholarships far in excess of what they invested to retain us.
We understand that those prices aren't within reach of many families, so we wanted to offer an opportunity to receive the same guidance at a lower price.
Your investment won't be anywhere near the low end of that range ($5,000).
It won't be even half!
Picture how great you'll feel when your child tells you, "I'm done!"...and you didn't have to SCREAM, THREATEN OR EVEN LIFT A FINGER to help! Enroll now while we still have spots (limited to 15 students)
Apply for our "Monday Mastermind" to get coached, 1-on-1 this July-September (Rising Seniors. Space strictly limited. All others please contact the office, see below.)
Andy is a three-time best selling author (including the book "College Essay Insider Secrets") and, along with his wife Pearl Lockwood, co-founder of Lockwood College Prep in Long Island, New York. Each year he personally mentors select students who gain admission to colleges such as Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Stanford, Brown, Dartmouth, Cornell, Duke and numerous other elite and less competitive institutions of higher education.
Where is the bootcamp? Our office, in charming, coastal Glenwood Landing: 135 Glenwood Road, Glenwood Landing, NY 11547
How long is the bootcamp? We start at 9am and wrap up 2pm or a little later. Each bootcamp lasts three days, starting on the date listed.
What should my child bring? A laptop and, preferably, an outline or even a draft of the essay.
Can parents come to the bootcamp No way (are you serious?)!
What about lunch? We are serving pizza, soda and drinks...and DELICIOUS snacks!
Can I special order for my kid? No. You may bring your own food, however.
My kid has no idea what to write about for his college essay, is this a waste of money? That's exactly why he should sign up!
My kid isn't motivated to do the work at the bootcamp, can I dump him on you? Please DON"T. Kids need to come with a good attitude, we're running a small, collegial group. One bad apple can run the bunch. This is not the place for whiners or slackers, we are doing WORK.
Do you pro-rate the Bootcamp if we miss one day? No, but we can work out a private in-office or Skype session to help make up the lost opportunity.
What is your refund policy? Our refund policy is that there are NO REFUNDS, because this is a teeny-tiny class and the spot you take represents a seat that could have been sold to another family. If a genuine last minute emergency comes up, we MAY, in our discretion, decide to credit you, but you will have to pass our patented BS Detector test. If you have doubts about your child's level of commitment, you should probably take a pass on this offer.
