1-2-3 College App Camp: Summer Intensive Program

The most agonizing part of a high school senior’s fall semester is applying to colleges. Each summer before school starts, Ivy Link helps students to complete their essays, organize recommendation letter strategies, and get applications off their minds with our 3-day intensive programs. Students will work with our coaches individually and in small groups to prepare compelling personal statements and supplements, organize and present impressive activity sheets, compile college lists, practice for the interview, and develop overall application strategies. Spaces will be extremely limited at each 3-day program to maximize that students benefit from a bespoke experience given their unique backgrounds and target schools.

DATES: Choose from one of the following, July 24 – 26  |  Aug 7 – 9  |  Aug 14 – 16  |  Aug 21 – 23
TIME: 10:00 am – 5:30 pm  |  Breakfast, lunch & snacks are provided each day.

Essay Writing for College


Finish in THREE days the application process that typically stretches across months, and leave with a completed common application months before your peers have even started.

Compelling Essays.  Our students work one-on-one and in small groups to prepare compelling personal statements and responses to supplemental questions for specific colleges of their choice. By learning Ivy Link’s strategies, students avoid common pitfalls, while brainstorming topics and crafting essays that present the best aspects of the students.

Impressionable Activity Sheet.  Our experts help students to prepare the activity sheet to include awards, achievements, extracurricular endeavors, summer and volunteer activities, and work and internship experiences. Our students learn to organize and present information in order to stand-out from the crowd.

Interview Training.  Our mock interviews help reduce students’ stress by familiarizing them with potential questions and instructing them in the techniques for effective responses.

Fine-Tuned College List.  Our experts help students fine-tune their college lists to best match their credentials, interests and aspirations.

Application Strategies.  Our experts work with students individually to review their odds at gaining admissions to selective colleges given their test scores and grades.

Standardized Testing Strategies.  Our experts review students’ histories of standardized test scores and advise them on whether to retest.

Effective Letters of Recommendation.  Our students learn strategies for obtaining effective letters of recommendation, as well as the types of letters to avoid.

Completed Common Application.  Our students will leave with all the necessary components to complete the Common Application.
