The blog post below is a rough transcription of the video above – so please listen to the video if possible – otherwise, here is what was in the video:
Hi everyone! This Neha with College Shortcuts. I hope you're having an amazing, amazing day.
I just wanted to do a quick video.
I am, oh my gosh, so many people are coming at us because October 15th is a deadline coming up. We know that just with the amount of parents that we work with that there are so many seniors that are needing as much help as possible. They really need someone to review their essays or at least to go through them and see if they're just not good, to get them redrafted.
I just wanted to tell you a little story today that was just huge for me. I got to talk with a mom today that ended up doing an assessment with us. We ended up just talking. I've known her just through our emails back and forth, almost for about a year-and-a-half, and I know a lot about her life and everything going on.
She ended up booking a last-minute package with us because her child really needs assistance in the application process. Our consultants could see it. I was really excited that we were able to do that. I sent an email tonight to our email list.
If you're not on our email list. Right here it says get free checklist at collegeshortcuts.com.
Please go there and sign up on my website if you aren't on our email list.
I thought I would do a quick Facebook announcement. If you are interested in possible booking a last-minute package with us, we do have a PDF we can send about our pricing and what we do in that.
All you have to do is shoot me a message up top, you see message, or send message below or at the top of my page in general. Just say "give me the PDF" and my team will manually add a PDF to your message, back response, and send it to you.
The reason why we're opening up three more slots for parents is because just in the last week, we have students applying, for example to UPenn programs, and the due date is October 15th. There's a lot of different schools that are being done for early decision.
Although we typically do finish up all of our our exclusive packages for seniors over 30 days ago, I had an executive team meeting with our team and we decided to open up a last minute packages for seniors still, that are really in the last-minute range.
This mom you know I could literally feel the stress in her voice.
I think it's just so incredible to be able to to be somebody for parents, whether they're in my hometown in Houston Texas or nationally. To really be able to take that stress and say "Don't worry," like "I will take care of your child."
We have decided at College Shortcuts to open up three more spots for our last-minute senior parents.
If you know any senior or if you know any parent that you know is dealing with stress, or not even talking about it, but has a senior . . . maybe hasn't done it, or maybe to you right now watching. . .
We're working 7 days a week right now to make sure in this college admissions season that we are helping senior parents.
For all the junior parents, sophomore parents, if you are interested in signing up for our early bird packages, now is the time to do it because next year we will not be taking on the stress levels and anxiety at the last minute that's happening this year.
We're now going to just be booking ahead of time and then once we get the max amount of students, we can work with for the following years, we just close off and just work with those clients specifically. I just wanted to shoot this little video to let you guys know.
I sent a huge email out to our list of thousands of senior parents that we're just going to be opening up three more slots.
If you want to get access, send me a message. You can either click below to send a message or comment or shoot a message up above on top of my page that says "Give me the PDF". We can get that over to you so we can find the right package for your kid.
I'm really excited that we get to work with this student and with this mom. She is under an incredible amount of stress.
Stress that I'm very familiar with. It's something my mother went through as well.
I'm just really excited to be able to take care of a kid that's going through something that I went through when I was a teenager as well.
I know that what we do is really just a form of love.
I'm really excited that the mom decided to finally take action. I've been waiting for her to take action but couldn't help myself. Took her on last minute and I want to know for every one of you guys out there, we love you, we care about you.
We do believe that the world is full of hope and light and a lot of other things other than anxiety, stress, and negativity.
That's why we work 7 days a week to combat the anger, frustration, depression.All the stuff going on in the world, because someone's got to do the work, we're here to support.
Just wanted to do a quick video and say 'Hi' to everyone. Please please please shoot me a message. We read every single one and just type in get the PDFs. We can definitely send an information to you.
No matter what grade your kid is in, please please please get yourself set up for success because our goal is to help your child get into the school of their dreams.
Have an amazing day and talk to you soon.
