College Essay Boot Camp is all the rage right now: go ahead, Google it. “Boot camp” prevalence implies that your admissions essay, like world domination, is not going to happen if you don’t get all militaristic about it.
But get this: Essay Intensive brings you a nouveau college essay boot camp model:
with us, you figure out ways to respect and maximize what you’ve already got going on so intensely that you wind up with a product (an essay!) only love could have made.
Make love, they say after all, not war. We buy that trade-off.
Because the following is not where you thought you’d turn for essay-writing, is it?
[infobox] boot camp n. 1. A training camp for military recruits.
2. A correctional facility that uses the training techniques applied to military recruits to teach usually youthful offenders socially acceptable patterns of behavior.[/infobox]
Shaved haircuts. Fatigues. Canteens. Helmets. Icky army food. And so on.
Instead, at Essay Intensive, we find and use our natural “weapons”—breathing, visualizing, moving, and—ah!—pens, to make love (yes!), not war. Rather than training to terminate someone else’s life-story (war in a nutshell), we make ours live.
Since we sweat accuracy, we made our “college essay boot camp” literal: in our writing intensives, you actually *will* do push-up, squats, and other physically demanding activities; you will punch us, and each other. You will kick dummies…and kick habits that hold you back from your innate awesomeness. Which is born with you and dies with you, so you better get moving.
Never done something like this? All the better. Sara hadn’t either before she began this line of work. But nothing feels quite so good as giving all your physical effort to your self-knowledge, self-development and writing.
You will learn to breathe bigger and better. You will learn to adjust your minds to open to the tasks at hand. You will learn about your mind. And you won’t mind. In there is your super-power.
Oh, and at our bootcamp, the college essay will happen. Like a military salute between you and Yourself—precise, targeted, and (yes) awesome.
Only belatedly will you remember that you’re here to apply to college—and by then, you’ll have an essay in your hand that does exactly what you need it to.
Sound good? Join us at our Summer 2014 intensive.
