NEW YORK & AUSTIN, Texas - April 9, 2019 - PRLog -- The college preparation industry has been under much scrutiny recently, and rightfully so. But two socially-conscious entrepreneurs who are experts in college prep have joined forces to create a beacon of authenticity and legitimacy by introducing "The Ultimate College Prep Bootcamp."

This unprecedented, 8-week summer series of live, interactive webinars brings normally pricey college admissions counseling and test prep secrets to the masses at a reasonable cost.

Students will learn directly from Emilia Wiles, founder of College Confident, which assists students and families with the college admissions and financial aid process, and Jared Friedland, CEO of national SAT/ACT prep company Catalyst Prep.

Beginning Wednesday, July 10, these live webinars will be held for eight consecutive weeks each Wednesday and Thursday, led by Jared and Emilia. The two-hour sessions will be interactive and also be archived for students to view at any time.

Emilia Wiles has a decade of experience in college counseling and has used her company to teach and promote college confidence throughout the journey to college acceptance for over 10,000 students across New York City. In eight sessions, Emilia will cover the college application process from start to acceptance in great detail and share the secrets learned about getting in. Her goal is to reduce family stress, get students' applications done before the beginning of their senior year of high school and to keep her kids 'ahead' of the rest of their competition in the college application timeline and in the knowledge of admissions information.
