This course is amazing. Before I tried this course, I didn't even have a clear idea of what the common application was. I didn't know how to approach it or apply. Watching some of these videos was very beneficial to me because I was given a background explanation of the process as well as a step-by-step lecture of how to start my application for colleges and what would be a good idea and what to avoid. After watching this course, I feel that I have a better grasp of how to start my common application and I would recommend anyone who wants a better understanding of the process to take this course as well. :)

Not only does this course teach the student the ins and outs of the admissions process, but it also gives the students lots of great ideas in terms of what makes or breaks an application. As a student, I personally came into the application process without much of a clue, intending to make it up as I went along and make it sound good. Now after watching this course I have a much better understanding of what colleges want to see from you in a college application and why certain ideas work and others don't. I am really grateful for the opportunity to view this course and much more confident entering the grueling admissions process.

I was a little skeptical at first about College Creed. But after watching one video, I realized how helpful the program is. As a senior working through the college app process, I found the walkthrough lectures to be very relevant and informative. The videos are short and sweet, covering everything you need to know about that particular topic efficiently and effectively. I would absolutely recommend College Creed to everybody i know.

The different lectures explained a lot of details that I wouldn't have known to even ask about on my own. Very helpful tips were given, and they made sure to cover all aspects of the common app.

So thankful I stumbled upon this course. There are no college admissions guidance programs available to me in my small Midwest town. The curriculum helped me totally rework my common app, pick up tips and new insights to the entire admissions process, and make me generally more confident as I apply to big-name, top ranked schools. Will is there to answer any questions along the way. I'd say good luck to you all, but after completing this course, you're already a step ahead of the thousands of high school seniors who haven't taken it!

This course has been extremely helpful in preparing for my college applications. Before, I was confused because I did not know what colleges were looking for in an application. With udemy's Master College Admissions online course, I am more confidant in my writing ability and creating a competitive college application.

This course is super helpful in understanding the college application process. When I applied to college I had friends who paid thousands of dollars for a private college counselor, but I refused to spent so much money. This is course would have been the perfect solution to master the college application process at an affordable price. After watching the videos, I identified many tips and pieces of information which I didn't know and would have been very helpful when I applied. I definitely recommend it to any high school Senior or Junior about to go through the college application process.

After hearing about College Creed, I had to check it out right away and the course is beyond amazing! The lectures are short and extremely succinct. I can learn everything I need to know and ask any question concerning college applications. This course is not only user friendly, it allows me to learn everything at my own pace and helps me feel more confident in my college apps!

Despite retroactively watching this lecture series after I had already been accepted to a college, I think the tips contained within would have been very helpful if I had applied them to my own admissions process. Most high schools (mine included) neglect to teach outgoing students the ins and outs of making their applications look good to colleges, and Mr. Yang did an excellent job of systematically elaborating on each part. What surprised me was how concise the whole series was, as I finished it in just over two hours--the equivalent of two of my class periods. My siblings are getting ready to start applying to colleges and I will recommend they watch this to get a feel for what they need to do on their own applications and hopefully avoid running into the same problems I did.

This course has great information that discusses the common application which I recommend to any upcoming senior. There are many misconceptions about the common app that this clarifies. I wish I had this back in high school!

Udemy has proved to be the perfect companion to me in the process of applying to college. Boasting a beautiful, clean, user-friendly interface, this program has helped me understand the college admission process and has made it easy for me to decide where I want to go to school. Kudos to the creators. I will be spreading the word about this online course to friends, as well as younger schoolmates.

You really gave a great overview of the Common App and got nice and specific with each section. You leave very few questions unanswered in your course and have even left a Bonus section for future topics.

Will does an amazingly thorough job of going through the ins and outs of the common app. What I liked the most about his course was that he was not simply spoon-feeding you answers or strategies, but rather teaching you to use your own skills and experiences to make your application as attractive as possible. Will knows the college review process (and any application process in general) very well, and demonstrates his expertise in his lessons. Anyone who takes this course will have a sure-fire edge in any application process, not just the common app.

After listening to only a handful of lectures, I can already tell that I made the right decision to enroll in this course. Instructor William Yang is very knowledgeable about the material, and his instructions/advice are detailed yet to the point. In addition, he is very helpful when it comes to answering any posted questions. I have no doubt that once I complete this course, I will feel more confident with how to tackle the common application.
