About Us


Some past students of this class have used their essays to get accepted into Harvard, MIT, and Stanford, but many others have been accepted into Cal, UCLA, USC, and a plethora of other great universities throughout the country.


In less than a week, Mr. Mooney uses his workbook to get students on the right track for their college admissions essay: whether they are working on the four UC essays or their Common App essay.


"Well written and entertaining to read, this short guide to top-notch personal statements has certainly prepared me for the long admissions process ahead. The tips are good, the explanations thought out and enlightening, and the student essays inspiring. I am currently cracking open ideas for Stanford essays, and while the planning process has been difficult, I would have been completely lost without the foundations that this guide has provided me."  K.
