‘BELLAGIO APPS’ GET INTO TOP COLLEGES
The annual college application completion retreat, Bellagio Apps, returns to Italy to inspire rising high school seniors to complete beautiful acceptance-worthy college applications
The fourteenth annual exclusive college application completion retreat Bellagio Apps will triumphantly return to Italy in July 2021 after being held online in 2020 due to the global pandemic.
The annual retreat for students who want to craft and complete amazing college applications before the first day of senior year will again take place in one of the most beautiful, serene, and inspirational locations on Earth: Bellagio, Italy. Situated at the center of Lake Como, Bellagio has attracted writers, artists, royalty, and the jet-set for generations, and it has come to epitomize the beauty and ease of life for which the Italian pre-Alps and lakes region is known world-wide. Bellagio has become synonymous with beauty, and students enrolled in Bellagio Apps will create beautiful college applications worthy of acceptance to the world’s top colleges.
“Bellagio Apps’ amazing and inspirational location, unrivaled attention to each individual student, and uplifting and motivating ethos set a gold standard in the industry.” explains Craig Meister, who for the fourteenth year running will serve as students’ lead instructor and summer college application completion coach. “When we offered our first summer college application completion program, then known as ‘Get Into College!’ in 2008, it was the first college admissions prep camp in Maryland and nobody anywhere offered such a comprehensive college admissions prep experience for students with an eye on their future. While the past decade’s-worth of our students’ results are stunning and act as a testament to our winning formula for success, starting to hold this colloquium in Italy, as we did several years ago, took our summer program to the next level.”
Unlike application boot camps that help students start the process of completing college applications, Bellagio Apps ensures students start AND finish the process of completing amazing, differentiated, and overall beautiful college applications – all before the first day of a student’s final year in high school. The personalized week-long program is ideal for students wanting an edge in the college admissions process because it gives students the time and space they really need to develop overall college applications that are simply unrivaled in quality and attention to detail.
Each Bellagio Apps student will work exclusively with Craig Meister to define an application strategy, finalize his or her college list, write a compelling extracurricular resume, and complete the Common Application essay, supplemental college essays, and the overall Common Application. Additionally, students will take part in mock college interviews that will prepare them for all-important alumni and on-campus interviews that take place later in the fall. During breaks in Bellagio Apps’ formal brainstorming and writing sessions, students will be able to amble through the alleys of picturesque Bellagio, enjoy boat rides on stunning Lake Como, and dine in fine establishments renowned for their cuisine and gelato. This is the perfect recipe for college application success!
As an added bonus in 2021, its timing during the first week of August ensures that Bellagio Apps students have most of their summer to focus on other productive endeavors like summer jobs, internships, sports, extracurricular activists, or travel.
Bellagio Apps is ideal for serious students who have thought a great deal about college and want to finish the strongest possible college applications. Bellagio Apps will propel students – and their applications – to the next level.
It’s no longer enough to be a strong applicant; students have to present themselves as strong applicants. Bellagio Apps helps students do just that!
Availability for 2021 is again strictly limited.
