What is College Boot Camp?
Twice during the academic year, we conduct college boot camps at Gain Contact Bahrain that focus on topics of interest to students and parents who want to learn about the college placement process. We tackle a variety of topics such as: what makes an ideal college for me, steps and timeline of the college admission process, how to deal with home sickness and adjustment to my new environment, what are the do’s and the don’ts of campus life, what to expect during a campus visit, and how to distinguish myself as an attractive applicant. These planned college boot camps aim at educating parents and students about the many facets of the college admission process along with the pitfalls and challenges of campus life.
