College Counseling Bootcamp Prepares Seniors for the Application Process
Last week VES’ College Counseling department helped seniors get a jump start on their year with their annual Summer Common App Bootcamp. Each day the counselors and students focused on specific goals with the aim of reaching the end of the week with a completed college application. Senior Lily Hurt felt the experience was “extremely helpful in getting us to finish our Common Apps. I even managed to finish a rough draft of my college essay.” Ultimately, the bootcamp was a week of self-discovery and helping students articulate what they learned about themselves in their applications and essays.
