Wow's 10 step college essay writing process, displayed in a color-coded graphic.
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.

We’ve written the only college essay book you’ll need – short, practical and full of proven strategies, so you can help students write the types of essays college admissions officers want to read.
“At first, essays were the thing I worried about the most. It wasn’t until the Wow training that it all clicked. I feel like a burden has been lifted.”

If you like our free Pro Chats, you’ll love the College Essay Community. The first week of each month, we announce a timely topic and share reflection questions and resources. At the end of the month, we gather on Zoom for a lively meeting, facilitated by Wow’s founders, to talk, reflect and challenge ourselves. All materials are available for a full year, and all meetings are recorded.
