Hi guys! This is our first blog post so here we will give a brief overview of Collebo.
Who are we?
We (Taylor, Haley, Jeremy, and Jonathan) are recent graduates from Palo Alto High School. For more information about our plans for college, check out our About page
What’s our mission?
Looking back on our senior year we realized that we actually have a lot of advice for other Palo Alto students about the application process. One of the most valuable resources we used while applying was actually hearing about the application stories of Paly grads (or even random strangers on YouTube!), so we decided to create a platform to highlight that. Additionally, we also know how expensive and stressful essay writing can be in the Bay Area, so we are also providing essay editing services this summer to encourage rising seniors to start the process as early as possible. We hope that you find this resource helpful!
Collebo is a shortened play on the words "college-bound" students as well as "collaboration", which is a key component of our platform’s mission as we try to help out other students with this stressful process.
How can I contribute?
If you have recently graduated, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and you’ll be sent a Google Doc with a set of questions so that we can learn more about your college application story and upload it to our blog! If you are a rising senior getting ready to apply, share this site with your friends and be on the lookout for more posts in the future.
Feel free to email us at email@example.com!
