-Choosing who (and how many) to write the letter of recommendations.

-Q & A Opportunity


College Application Essay Coaching (Online/Virtual)

THE most stressful & time consuming part of the application is the "Personal Statement" (aka essay). Students must distinguish themselves by finding their voice and showing how much more they are beyond grades, coursework and test scores.

Your essay is approximately 20% of the admission decision. LEAP's coaching staff interacts with dozens of colleges each year. What do they want from your essay?

-Learn what you value.
-Discern what you'll add to their campus; do you fit?
-How well do you write?

We are experts at teaching you how to tap into your inner voice that needs to be heard.
