Episode #76: Interviewing my Passion Project Bootcamp Students (Part 2)

I had so much fun in last week’s episode speaking with students of my Passion Project Bootcamp, and today you’re going to get to listen to even more of their experiences and insights! You’ll hear how my students felt about their college admissions journey before joining the Passion Project Bootcamp, what made them decide to enroll in the Passion Project Bootcamp, and even more ways to create and scale your passion project. It’s all in this episode of Demystifying College Admissions! 

TUNE IN BELOW:

WHAT YOU’LL LEARN ABOUT IN THIS EPISODE:

  • The serious issues the students are addressing with their passion projects
  • Strategies for scaling your passion project, and why focusing on a specific problem is better than going general on your Passion Project topic
  • More details about professor outreach and the noticeable impact it had on the results that one student has achieved
  • The motivation that each had in starting their passion projects, their advice for anyone about to embark on the college admissions process, and so much more

NOTABLE QUOTES:

It was really helpful not only hearing feedback, but also to hear what the other students’ passion projects are too. At the same time, you also think about how you can make your passion project better with the ideas you heard from so many other amazing students.
You’re never going to get into your school just by buying or paying for something. It’s the work that you put in, alongside with all the strategies, the tips and every other great resource that it offers.
Playing safe is not the point of life. The point of life is to do things that scare you a little and do things that challenge you a little, because crossing that bridge leads you to results.
You can do whatever you want with your life, and you have the power to create the life you want. Don’t let anyone else tell you what you can or can’t do.

LINKS/RESOURCES MENTIONED:

Getting into Ivy League & Top-tier colleges doesn’t require perfection.

I repeat: You do NOT have to be perfect.

You also don’t have to spend a million hours volunteering, get perfect test scores, or be a star athlete.

What is required is understanding How to STAND OUT.
