Ep. 149 | How To Build And "Rebuild" Your ECA List

A rundown on how a motivated PrepWeller followed the plan to set himself up for success.

Show Notes:

Today's episode reveals how an engaged PrepWeller took my advice to heart. With some help from me, "Rick" built his extracurricular activities "straw man" over the summer and got to work. Then, after learning more about himself and refining his vision for the future, he and I worked together again to update, upgrade, and re-ignite his list. As a rising junior, Rick has set himself up for success. If he can execute his plan, the sky is the limit. Find out how we tweaked Rick's list for maximum effect.
