650 words about you
Right now, the most significant piece of the college application process remaining in your control is your personal statement.
If your entire application is a narrative, your personal statement is your opportunity to articulate that story as clearly as possible. You can’t write an essay in a first draft. It might take a dozen tries. We’ll work with you to make sure that version you finally land on presents you to colleges in the brightest light possible.
We’ll help you brainstorm topics until we find the one that highlights what is unique and impressive about you. Then we’ll contribute strategies and ideas to polish the truly endearing elements of your character. We’ll steer you clear of the cliched topics, puffery and mundane recitations of your extracurriculars and other miscues that glaze over the eyes of admissions officers.
Make no mistake, the work will be all yours - we simply ensure the drafting and revision process leads to an exemplary essay and not writing for mediocrity.
