We work well with counselors and consultants because we all care about the same thing: helping students get into the schools of their dreams. We focus exclusively on the essay – you’re already an expert on the rest of the admission process. We’re writers, teachers and problem-solvers; we’ll work with you to find the right solutions for you and your students. Tell us what you need. We’ll figure out how to get there.
NEW: The College Essay Community
When it comes to the college essay, there’s always something to talk about. Join our supportive and engaging community to share ideas, solve problems and dig into best practices together.
