`{`Passion Project Bootcamp`}` was an investment that I definitely do not regret, because if you get into a really good school, they have really good financial aid.
If you’re confused and you have no guidance, it doesn’t matter how much work you’re willing to put in, because you don’t know what you’re doing.
I will forever remember that day that I got in `{`to Cornell`}`, because I worked so hard every single day up to this moment, and when I finally got that acceptance `{`letter`}`, it was the best feeling ever.
`{`Passion Project Bootcamp`}` will give you so much guidance and it will give you all the steps you need to get into your dream college. All you have to do is to put in the work.
