       College Applicants Now Have Access to Same High-End
        Assistance Previously Only Available to a Select Few

 College Admissions Insider Advice Previously Only Available at $14,000 Workshops is
      Now Open to Students Everywhere Through an Interactive Online Program

Malibu, California, October 03, 2012 - Parents have been willing to pay almost any price to
get their children into Boston-based Application Boot Camp®, the four-day workshop known
for its effectiveness in helping students get into the country’s most competitive universities.
For the past nine years, the $14,000 program has had a waiting list as only a few dozen
students each year have been able to get step-by-step college application advice from Dr.
Michele Hernández and Mimi Doe, two of the nation’s premier college admissions
counselors. Now, Hernández and Doe have partnered with Veritas Prep, the world’s largest
privately-owned provider of test prep and admissions consulting services, to launch
Application Boot Camp® on Demand, bringing the program’s step-by-step application
assistance to students everywhere as they navigate the complex college admissions
process.

“Veritas Prep is delighted to partner with Michele and Mimi to share their unparalleled
knowledge and expertise about college admissions with a broader audience,” said Chad
Troutwine, co-founder and CEO of Veritas Prep. “This is the ultimate game changer in
college admissions. Now, with Application Boot Camp on Demand, students and families
everywhere can get valuable intelligence on how to navigate the complex college application
process and complete their college applications from two of the nation’s most sought after
college admissions experts.”

Sharing secrets and strategies gained from more than a decade of helping students
successfully apply to the most prestigious American colleges and universities, Dr. Hernández
and Ms. Doe guide students as they complete all elements of the Common Application
and actually build their own college applications with the program’s assistance. By the end
of the program, students have a completed Common Application and supplemental essays
and are ready to submit their college applications using the unique Application Boot Camp®
system.

Dr. Hernández is the former assistant director of admissions at Dartmouth College and
author of several best selling books on college admissions, including A is for Admission and
Acing the College Application. She also co-authored Don’t Worry You’ll Get In! with Ms. Doe,
who in addition to her work in college admissions is a renowned parenting expert and
award-winning author. More than a decade ago, Dr. Hernández and Ms. Doe founded
Application Boot Camp®, which is a four-day in-person workshop offered several times a
year. For the past nine years, the workshops have been filled to capacity with a waiting list.

“Application Boot Camp on Demand takes the guesswork out of the process by giving
students a behind the curtain look at how admissions officers evaluate applications, allowing
them to make strategic decisions about how they highlight the qualities and characteristics
that will get them noticed by admissions committees,” said Dr. Hernández. “By offering the
program via an interactive online program, we now have the opportunity to work with
students everywhere and expand access to this valuable intelligence to ensure a more level
playing field where the tools, resources and information students need to set themselves
apart in this highly competitive environment are readily available. It was important to us to
find a way to reach more students and Veritas Prep is the perfect partner,” added Ms. Doe.

The cost to register for Application Boot Camp on Demand is $750. The program features a
library of quizzes and interactive exercises in addition to twelve self-paced sessions led by
Dr. Hernández and Ms. Doe:

   •   Standardized Testing Plan
   •   The 80/20 Rule (Academics vs. Extra-Curriculars)
   •   Admissions Hooks
   •   Application Timing Strategy
   •   The Common Application
