I came in with a rough draft of my personal statement, and now I'm leaving with first drafts of all my supplements and a finished personal statement. The mentors were extremely helpful and my week was very productive. I feel very ahead of the game and prepared for the rest of my college application process!
Launch Academy was the most beneficial experience of my summer and helped me get more done in one week than I had with any other activity in regards to writing my essays, creating connections, and preparing for the tests. Billy Downing's leadership and excellent staff did a commendable job.
Before I came to Launch, I had no idea what a personal statement or activity essay was. I had no idea how to make a resume either. Now, I feel way ahead of my class.
My week at Launch Camp was extremely informative and all of the counselors were very helpful and kind. As a rising senior, the ability to get so far ahead on my common app and essays is priceless. Additionally, the once-in-a-lifetime guest speaker opportunities were extremely informative. My fellow campers were all so nice and friendly. My time at Launch could not have been any more fun or productive.
Going into Launch Camp I did not know what to expect and was frankly a bit nervous. However, the moment I arrived I felt welcome and excited to jump into the week. The mentors, speakers, and leaders were extremely helpful, funny and approachable. The side activities such as Yoga, Ropes Course, and visiting the Lake added to a great balance of academics and leisure. Overall, the camp was one of the most efficient, yet enjoyable weeks of my High School experience.
I went into Launch not knowing what to talk about in my personal statement and now I feel confident that my personal statement is a great explanation of my strengths that will help me get into a college I love.
I had a great time at Launch, and I feel like I am extremely ahead of all of my other classmates. I think Launch gave us better writing and interviewing skills that will be very helpful in my college applications!
Launch was the exact college prep experience I needed. I was worried about my college essay, but tackling it head on at launch got me from being behind to being ahead on my essays and common app.
