College applications are composed primarily of transcripts, test scores, and application essays. Increasingly, the importance of test scores is fading and the importance of application essays in on the rise. Coupled with the fact that you can write your essays in a matter of weeks, compared with the years of sustained effort that goes into your GPA, and you can see that a great college essay is the single most important effort in making your application stand out.
Unlike the expository style typical of most high school writing, successful application essays are all about honest personal exploration and creative storytelling. It can be uncomfortable and alien to turn the focus onto ourselves. It can also be difficult to judge the difference between good and great writing when dealing with such personal material. On top of all that, if you are applying to a long list of colleges, you may have several different personal essays to write, each with their own unique opportunities and constraints.
Our college essay tutors can help you brainstorm topics, work through revisions, and ultimately capture your unique voice and vision on the page. We value the end result, a great personal essay that will make your application stand out. But even more so we value the process of getting to know yourself, your memories, and what matters to you most. You bring the personality and we’ll guide you through meaningful self-exploration and creation.
