debt free college

This session is for parents, and for students ages 12–26.

* 7 things parents can do right now to put their kids on the fast track to getting through college debt-free

* How kids as young as age 15 can get an exciting, liberating sense of career goal early on, and then sign up for only the amount of college absolutely necessary to accomplish that

* How kids as young as age 12 can get a massive head start on racking up the 10,000 hours it takes to be viewed as an expert in a career field

* Why deeply inspired caring—not the fancy name of the college you attend—is the key to fulfilled, satisfied career life in the long term.

This 2-hour session will be presented live by Jeannie Burlowski, author of the book LAUNCH: How to Get Your Kids Through College Debt-Free and Into Jobs They Love AfterwardA live Q & A will be offered at the end.

MAKE THEM SAY WOW: Write Brilliant Scholarship Application Essays

application essay

This session is for students ages 12–26, and their parents.

Imagine your child applying for 10 scholarships every single year, starting in 8th grade and going all the way through grad school. 80+ scholarships altogether.

Wow! That would be amazing! But who wants to write 80 scholarship application essays? Not your kid, that’s for sure.

Here’s the brilliant solution.

Your child writes one stunning scholarship application essay, and then modifies it and uses it over and over again to apply for 100 different scholarships. You make sure this is such a brilliant essay that it gets your kid money—even if he or she has lower grades and test scores.

This 3-hour class will teach you and your child exactly how to write such an essay. Together, you’ll learn to:

  1. Throw the old “introduction—body—conclusion” essay structure out the window. That’s an informative essay structure that doesn’t work for persuasion.
  2. Use the same principles of argument that lawyers use when arguing cases in court. (Be sure you know all three component parts of logical argument before you try this.)
  3. Use vividly written stories to capture attention and create powerful emotional pull. Begin to see potential in your child’s own life stories, the ones that in the past you only viewed as run-of-the-mill and ordinary.
  4. Equip yourself with a new, clever, multi-layered organizational structure that makes room for all of your child’s accomplishments without ever sounding scattered, disorganized, or disjointed.

Other students have called this class “amazing” and “revolutionary.” This class is also suitable for applicants to law, medical, business, and grad school.

This scholarship essay writing session will be presented live by Jeannie Burlowski, author of the book LAUNCH: How to Get Your Kids Through College Debt-Free and Into Jobs They Love Afterward

THE STRATEGIC COLLEGE STUDENT: How to Get Higher Grades While Studying LESS Than Most Other People

For students ages 12–26 and their parents

There’s not a student alive who wouldn’t love to get higher grades than anyone else while studying LESS than most other people.

In this 3-hour live class, students ages 12–26 learn the advanced studying, test-taking, and paper-writing strategies that top students use to succeed at the most prestigious colleges in the country while still having plenty of time left over for leadership, interning, and having more fun than they ever thought possible.

Students leave at the end armed with a systematic review method developed at Carnegie Mellon University that can completely eliminate the need to ever cram for exams.

REGISTER HERE!

Are you a student age 12–26?

This class will help you to maximize your potential in high school and in college, give you more time to relax, and help you to become a top contender both for scholarships, and for career or grad school success after college.

Who should attend this class?

The class is ideal for current high school students, middle school students, current college students, graduate students, and teens who’ll be starting dual enrollment college courses this coming fall. Parents are encouraged to attend as well.

FAQs

“Why are you encouraging middle schoolers to take this class? Isn’t age 12 way too early to take a class like this?”

Most parents don’t realize it, but middle schoolers’ brains are developing faster than at any time since infancy. Age 12, 13, or 14 is the perfect time for students to first get exposure to the strategies that top-performing college students use to manage time so they can study LESS than most other people.

Middle schoolers eagerly devour the information in this class, and then use what they learn to get higher grades all through high school. Bringing a middle schooler to an event like this is an opportunity that should not be missed.

“I’m a high school junior starting dual enrollment college classes this fall. Should I be taking this class?”

Absolutely, yes. This class will relieve your stress and anxiety, make your dual enrollment classes far easier for you to manage, and set you up to have the highest possible college GPA when you either go looking for post-college jobs or apply to grad school one day. Many students who’ve taken this class as middle schoolers take it again just before starting dual enrollment college classes in high school.

“I’m in graduate school. Should I attend this class too?”

Yes. This class is ideal for any student, age 12–26 and up, who would like to achieve more while giving less time to studying.

“I’m a parent. Should I attend this class with my middle school or high school age child?”

If possible, yes; please do. Parents are strongly encouraged (but not required) to attend this class. The reason? If your child begins to flounder academically at any point in the future, you’ll be able to say, “Remember that ________ strategy we learned from Jeannie Burlowski? Are you still using that one?” This class will help you to be your child’s greatest encourager and cheerleader during the college years.

“I’m not sure we need this class. Isn’t my child already learning high-level college study strategies in high school?”

No. The strategies in this 3-hour class are not taught in high school.

“My son or daughter would rather play video games than attend this class. Should I pay him or her to attend it?”

What a great idea! Take a look at the inspiring, helpful article Jeannie Burlowski has written on this exact subject here.

Age 12, 13, or 14 is the perfect time for students to first get exposure to the strategies that top-performing college students use to manage time so they can study LESS than most other people.

Middle schoolers eagerly devour the information in this class, and then use what they learn to get higher grades all through high school. Bringing a middle schooler to an event like this is an opportunity that should not be missed.

“I’m a high school junior starting dual enrollment college classes this fall. Should I be taking this class?”

Absolutely, yes. This class will relieve your stress and anxiety, make your dual enrollment classes far easier for you to manage, and set you up to have the highest possible college GPA when you either go looking for post-college jobs or apply to grad school one day. Many students who’ve taken this class as middle schoolers take it again just before starting dual enrollment college classes in high school.

“I’m in graduate school. Should I attend this class too?”

Yes. This class is ideal for any student, age 12–26 and up, who would like to achieve more while giving less time to studying.

“I’m a parent. Should I attend this class with my middle school or high school age child?”

If possible, yes; please do. Parents are strongly encouraged (but not required) to attend this class. The reason? If your child begins to flounder academically at any point in the future, you’ll be able to say, “Remember that ________ strategy we learned from Jeannie Burlowski? Are you still using that one?” This class will help you to be your child’s greatest encourager and cheerleader during the college years.

“I’m not sure we need this class. Isn’t my child already learning high-level college study strategies in high school?”

No. The strategies in this 3-hour class are not taught in high school.

“My son or daughter would rather play video games than attend this class. Should I pay him or her to attend it?”

What a great idea! Take a look at the inspiring, helpful article Jeannie Burlowski has written on this exact subject here.

“I notice there’s a free, optional University of Northwestern campus tour starting as soon as this class is over. Should we sign up for that too?”

You’re already on a college campus. Add fuel to the fire of your kid’s excitement to attend college by taking the free, optional campus tour sponsored by UNW admissions. Why do this now? Because now’s the perfect time to let your kid know what college living will look and feel like. This free campus tour lasts 55 minutes. Select the FREE Campus Tour ticket option. Ages 11–Adult.

“How can I contact the organizer with any questions?”

You can email the organizer of this event at brilliantincollege@gmail.com.

“Is my ticket transferable?”

Yes. Your ticket is transferable. If you are not able to attend the event, just print your ticket out and have your friend bring it (or a photo of it) to the event.

“What are the special driving and parking directions that will make it easy for us to find this class on the UNW campus?”

The class will be held on the University of Northwestern campus (formerly Northwestern College), 3003 Snelling Avenue North, Roseville, Minnesota, in Riley R2300. Parking is free.

To get to Riley Hall, follow Constitution Way up the hill. The road will begin to turn, and you will see Lots C and D. Park in either of these. Riley is right next to Lot C. To enter Riley Hall, follow the sidewalk into the vestibule. Go up to the second floor, and once you’re up there, go to the end of the hallway. Room 2300 will be on your right.

I’ll be a featured speaker in Nashville at the Institute for Cultural Communicators iCON 2018 Conference, which runs June 25th–June 30th, 2018. iCON is one of the most popular conferences in the world for homeschooling families, but non-homeschooling families attend as well.

My particular session at this conference is open to the public.

The entire iCON conference is extremely valuable, but if you’re pressed for time, any student or parent can purchase a $97 one-day pass to this conference and benefit from a full day of programming that includes me presenting an extensive, in-depth session entitled How to Get Kids Through College Debt-Free—Without Scholarships! (Read on for a full description of this session.)

Seeing me at a conference is extra valuable.

One of the best things about seeing me at a conference (as opposed to seeing me at a one-evening class) is that you’ll be able to find me in hallways, at meals, and in the exhibit hall—and ask me individual questions you’d never get a chance to ask me otherwise. I love doing this, so please come and find me!

CLASS DESCRIPTION: How To Get Kids Through College Debt-Free—Without Scholarships!

Why would you want to prep for college or technical school the same old way everyone else does? That’s the surest route to mediocrity! In this jam-packed session, author Jeannie Burlowski will explain:

  • 7 things parents can do right now to put their kids on the fast track to getting through college debt-free
  • How kids as young as age 15 can get an exciting, liberating sense of possible career goal early on, and then sign up for only the amount of college absolutely necessary to accomplish that
  • How kids as young as age 12 can get a massive head start on racking up the 10,000 hours it takes to be viewed as expert in a career field
  • Why deeply inspired caring—not the fancy name of the college you attend—is the key to fulfilled, satisfied career life in the long term

For students ages 12–26 and their parents.
