I Wrote a Really Kick-Ass Personal Statement About How No One In Admissions Reads the Personal Statements 

How I Spent Summer Vacation: At Getting-Into-College Camp:
Brighton's nine-day $2,295 program at the University of California, Los Angeles and Tufts is the shortest and least expensive of the three. The June session at U.C.L.A. is nearly full, though there are still plenty of openings in the August sessions both at the California campus and Tufts.

All three programs include preparation for the SAT, writing essays and guidance on college selection, interview tips and college visits. The Musiker program — $2,899 for 12 days at Northeastern University or Georgetown, offered in partnership with The Princeton Review — includes more college visits than the others. Bob Musiker, an executive director, said about 120 students had enrolled so far for 200 openings.


"When student and faculty activists struggle for cultural diversity, they are in large part battling over what skin color the rich kids should have."
-Walter Benn Michaels, University of Illinois, Chicago


"America is a nation of B and C students. But let's keep it fucking real, OK? A black C student can't run no fucking company. A black C student can't even be the manager of Burger King. Meanwhile, a white C student just happens to be the president of the United States of America!"
-Chris Rock
