College Application Resources

Need some help with your college application? Check out the College Essay Guy! The College Essay Guy offers tons of free resources that can guide you throughout the entire application process.

Check out this free resource here.
If you're interested in seminars instead of a self-guided program, College Essay Guy also offers live classes and prerecorded seminars. Though these are normally a paid feature, they have a, "pay what you can" policy, which means you can take the classes completely free. You can find these seminars and classes here.
