FREE College Essay Boot Camp NEXT WEEK!

I'm thrilled to announce that Long Island Scholars will offer a FREE, one-week COLLEGE ESSAY BOOT CAMP for rising high school seniors (Class of 2021) in partnership Ethan Sawyer, aka "the College Essay Guy," and facilitated locally (for students who co-register with us) by Dr. Shawn Marie Garrett (Executive Director, Long Island Scholars).


It's all happening online next week, June 1st - 5th, at no cost!


This syllabus maps out what we will cover during the boot camp.

This 1-minute trailer gives a sneak peek into the boot camp and the Choose Your Own Adventure Essay Tool.


Can’t make the boot camp? Session recordings will be available to all who sign up.


To register for the boot camp:


A.) Go to this registration page.

B.) Enter your name and email.

C.) Send the same information to me at info@longislandscholars.org, so that I can help you with editing, revising, and any questions that may arise along the way.


You’re done! Put the date and time in your calendar, and keep an eye on your email with next steps and instructions for accessing the live webinar.

The live boot camp sessions will be held on June 1st, 3rd, and 5th. You can join for either the 1:00 - 2:30 p.m. (NY time) session OR the 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. (NY time) session (whichever fits your schedule).


Thinking of you all, and looking forward to supporting you in embarking on this crucial step of the college admissions process,


Dr. Garrett
