College APPS Crash Course

Complete your entire college application in this 10-hour College Application Crash Course, curated and coached by current Harvard students who have successfully applied to the world's top university! Over the course of one week, learn how to submit the best application possible to your dream school. From simply making a list of colleges to impressing alumni interviewers to writing a compelling story, let our Harvard students help you present yourself in the best way possible. After the course, all students are also eligible for a FREE hour of feedback and essay review to ensure the quality of your application.

At HSA Tutoring we also know that the college process can often affect a student’s entire family. For that reason, we’ve included a debriefing for parents into our curriculum, and we encourage family members to ask our coaches any of their questions! You don’t have to struggle and stress about colleges on your own—take the College App Crash Course to make sure you and your family feel confident about the quality of your application.

Why Crash Course?

Our Crash Course coaches are in the best position to help high schoolers create admissions-worthy college applications. After all, they applied to schools themselves very recently—and were able to gain admission to the top university in the world! Between them, our coaches share acceptances to all Ivies and almost every one of the top 50 schools in the United States. Many of our Harvard student tutors have extensive experience in curating the type of essays, resume, interviews, and overall application that will impress admissions officers, and we can't wait to relay our insights to you!
