Felicia's Spring Workshops and Summer Boot Camps
Getting Started Writing Workshop
Just starting your college applications? Get up to speed quickly. Here you plunge into the essay writing process. Prior to the workshop you first complete brainstorming activities to generate topics and outlines for the Common App Personal Statement and University of California Personal Insight essays (for students who are not applying to the UC's, this work will be developed for state applications and the private supplement essays). Then attend the workshop where we do activities to help you to develop your outlines and draft one or two of these essays. Throughout the workshop Felicia and her team oversee your writing process, providing feedback and guidance along the way. Tuition: $720 at Palo Alto location. $600 at Seattle locations.
Testimonials from Getting Started Writing Boot Camp 2017
The College Application Camp is an intensive camp of organization, writing and preparation of the University of Callifornia and Common App applications. The camps involve several hours of preparation of application materials on the part of the student prior to the two day immersion. Felicia reviews these materials and returns them to students for their revision prior to camp. Then on the first day of camp, students participate in the "nuts and bolts" seminar section of the camp where we review the most important admissions topics and questions. Students learn what is expected of them in the college application process and what important strategic steps they must take. For the second day, students complete a brainstorming packet in preparation for the 5 hour writing workshop focused on the Common Application personal statement OR the UC personal insight questions. During the workshop, students also meet individually with Felicia and her writing advisors to review their application materials and progress. By the end of the camp, students are expected to have produced key components of their application listed below. Tuition $2100

The Why Here? Supplement Prompt - An Online Essay Seminar
In this workshop, you learn how to write personal responses to the supplement prompt: "Why do you want to attend our college?" Felicia guides you through a series of brainstorming exercises to help you identify and develop your ideas. You also conduct research and learn to pair your own academic and extracurricular interests with the mission of the college. Throughout the workshop Felicia provides feedback and guidance. These workshops are planned for late August and through September once the college essay prompts are published.
