Oh, The Thick Envelope!

Oh, The Thick Envelope!


Do you want to receive the ‘Thick Envelope’ in the spring of your student’s 12th grade year?  It’s the Thick Envelope that comes with a letter of admission, along with other forms for housing, orientation, deposits, payment, and perhaps even financial aid.  Often you can determine whether your student is in or out just by looking at the envelope’s thickness.

For an inside track to receiving the Thick Envelope, do yourself a favor and watch this brief, 10 minute video on Top 7 Insider Admissions Tips.  These are valuable nuggets that you and your student should follow to improve your admissons chances.  I cover these tips and MUCH MORE during my 4th Annual College Pete’s ‘Thick Envelope Magic’ Admissions and Application Boot Camp.

  • This event is for rising 12th graders during the summer before senior year.  Along with these insider tips I also cover
  • The all-important application essay
  • Key strategies on visiting colleges
  • interviewing strategies that make a strong, positive impression
  • The right way to ask for teacher recommendations so that they’ll THANK YOU!
  • Researching and selecting colleges so that you maximize your chances for admission
  • Doing the little things to improve your chances at admission
