On Saturday, October 17th, from 10am-4pm, Boston will partner with Northeastern University for the sixth annual College Essay Boot Camp! At the event, 100 college-bound Greater Boston high school students are matched with trained tutors to receive one-on-one writing support with their college essays. Students can brainstorm, draft, or revise their college application essay, take tours of Northeastern’s campus, and find out more about scholarship programs. Breakfast and a pizza lunch are also included – all for free!
Please note: student registration for 2015 is now closed.
