Most selective colleges require you to submit an essay or personal statement as part of your college application. A well written essay can make a difference at decision time. While admissions committees put the most weight on your high school grades and your test scores, selective colleges receive too many applications with similar scores and grades. They rely on your essay, along with your letters of recommendation and extracurricular activities, to determine what sets you apart from the other candidates.
Having been in the business for over twenty years, we know a good essay when we see one. We also know how to bring an average essay (or even just an idea) to a place where it can begin to work in your student’s favor. From conception to development to completion, we are at the ready to work with your student.
