Hello, I thought that the course was super helpful. I feel a lot more prepared to deal with the application process. The idea of all of this college stuff really scared me but I feel a lot more confident about applying now. This was a well-organized class and it was very beneficial.
This class was a very interesting class and helped with my readiness for college admissions. I will say that this "college prep" class is by far better than any class I have taken in public school and I really enjoyed it.
I feel like this course has covered just about everything. There isn't one thing that I think needs to be added. I think that this course has touched every part of applying for college.
I thought this course was very, very informative. It answered a lot of small things that I have been stressing over in preparation for college. I think the material for this course was very useful :)
