Spend your summer before senior year working on college essays. Oftentimes, rising seniors spend their break relaxing–not realizing they could be working on personal statements for college applications all summer long. The very BEST college essays involve serious introspection, writing & editing, and during break you’ll have the time to really brainstorm & rewrite to come up with stories that best represent you as a person. Get a jump on your college essays and when many applications open on August 1st, you’ll be way ahead of the game!

The most impressive essays have been revised multiple times. Your essay won’t be successful on the first try. It’s important to have many drafts of your essay to ensure it’s exactly what you want. With short character limits, it may be difficult to incorporate everything you want in your essay, so multiple drafts can help you really hone in on what to use and what to leave out. College admission reps read thousands of essays, so it’s critical to write and re-write multiple drafts to make your final essays truly stand out in the crowd.

Plan wisely – complete your college essays before the crush of senior year hits. Senior year is filled with so many different responsibilities–from both academic and social perspectives. College applications add yet another stress to your already busy schedule. We suggest you finish your college essays prior to fall of senior year, so you won’t become overwhelmed with the amount of work and responsibilities that senior year presents.

We brainstorm and help guide you through essay drafts. Essays are a key element to your college applications, so we want to ensure that you submit the most impressive college essays possible. This is your chance to show off your personality, your values and unique thought processes and your essays need to be very specific to you! We help you brainstorm ideas based on your unique story and offer critiques for the multiple essays that will be required. We help ease the stress that comes with writing college essays by adding support and guiding you throughout the process.

We provide structure & deadlines to keep you on task. Procrastination affects many students, so we work with students on their time-management skills and provide deadlines for their essays all summer long and into college application season. Dreaming up ideas for college essays can be very stressful as deadlines loom, so we help our students devise their personal statements early. At Navigatio College Consulting, we help our students gain the opportunity to fully enjoy their final year in high school.
