The leaves are changing, the days are getting shorter, the nights are getting colder. Fall is here, and you know what that means —  it’s time to kick your college admissions process into high gear! 

Story2 is here to help. Our live online bootcamps demystify the college essay-writing process and help you complete essays that get results!

During our bootcamps, you’ll have the chance to work on your essays with the support of our expert coaches and other students in the Story2 community. We’ll teach you the skills to ensure that your essays connect with admissions officers and achieve measurable results! 

Using these and other Story2 resources, over 90% of our students have been admitted to one or more of their top three college choices — schools like NYU, UCLA, MIT, Howard, Smith, Princeton, and more. 

But don’t just take our word for it. Here’s what other students have to say about Story2 College! 

“My college counselor said that college admissions came down to my essays. Story2 helped me come up with the idea for my essay. I wrote about a normal day when I took a chance and learned a big lesson. I got into Cornell Engineering and then used the Story2 method to get amazing summer internships.” - Kenny from NYC, Cornell University

“I really didn’t know where to start. Story2 gave me the tools and confidence to write multiple essay drafts and supplements as well as scholarship essays, and helped me reach my top choice colleges with scholarships.” - Max from Hong Kong, Northwestern University
