Admissions counseling

We conduct admissions counseling either by phone or Skype. Each session allows us to get to know you as an applicant and assess your readiness and overall objectives.

Application materials review

We review all of your application materials to determine what strengths, experiences, and achievements are best to feature—and elaborate on—in your essay.

Essay edit

The Essay Edit service is appropriate when applicants have a mature essay that only requires expert editorial oversight. We perfect grammar & diction, improve style, and make final suggestions to strengthen the quality of your writing.

Essay revision

Essay Revisions are appropriate for applicants who need help improving the flow and coherence of their personal statements. We re-structure the essay, provide strong transition statements, and develop the overall theme.

Essay re-write

The Essay Re-write service is needed when the applicant's essay requires significant or total revision. Applicants work closely with our consultants to develop the most compelling possible theme and to ensure English-perfect diction. Although we may revise the essay in its entirety, we remain true to the author's original voice.
