Let a professional writer and journalist help you get started or un-stuck so you can present your best and most authentic self to your dream schools.
SUCCESS BEYOND TEST SCORES
Despite the rumors, your test scores alone do not determine your admissions fate. Your character, values, and personality are just as important, but you need great essays to bring out those qualities, and that's where we shine. We help our clients discover and express their best and most revealing experiences, lifting them beyond any imagined limitation of test scores or other surface measurements to attain schools seemingly beyond reach.
TELL US WHAT YOU'VE DONE, AND WE'LL TELL YOU WHO YOU ARE
As former journalists, the most important questions we'll ask you are not "What did you accomplish?", but rather "Why and how did you accomplish it?" Your answers will reveal your awareness of your unique combination of strengths and weaknesses, with a focus on the soft skills that almost always determine success or failure.
Through this "self-awareness", you can express your potential contributions to your classmates as well as your greatest development needs. This self-awareness is the most important quality to demonstrate to admissions committees, but it is also the most elusive and time-consuming to develop, which is why we encourage our clients to begin the essay-writing process as early as possible, even before they've finished taking tests. As we've proven repeatedly, great essays can overcome average test scores, but even great test scores rarely overcome average essays.
WE DON'T COUNT SESSIONS, WE COUNT IMPACT
Some of our most successful clients -- most of whom work under flat-rate packages -- don't know how special they are. It's our job to make sure they and the schools they are applying to do. Through constant communication by Skype, email, and in-person (New York City area), we will extract your best stories and inject them with unique and humanizing details so they exude you. We then fashion these stories into a comprehensive and integrated application package that demonstrates your utmost potential to achieve your ambitious goals. Our approach is so successful that many of our clients -- even those already with company sponsorships or scholarships -- receive generous scholarship offers from their target schools.
We tailor our advice to your situation and help you filter out distractions and rumors so we can focus on the big picture of developing the best materials possible as quickly as possible to meet demanding deadlines. Don't be surprised if we produce 20-30 drafts of a single essay before we are satisfied. We will push you but will never leave you stranded. If you work with us, expect initial email responses within a few hours and edits within 48 hours, even during the busiest deadline periods.
By the time we're done, we'll know you better than your own mama.
