Recent writing clients have gained admission to Stanford University, University of Pennsylvania, University of Virginia, Duke University, University of Texas, Trinity University, UCLA and University of Houston.
College admissions professionals agree that application essays remain a vital part of the review process, outweighing grades and test scores in some instances. Applicants to selective private universities may be required to draft additional essays for each institution, producing as many as 25-30 separate documents. Private essay editing is designed to help students highlight their strengths and avoid common essay pitfalls.
Writing tutoring augments the limited editorial support available at even the most prestigious preparatory schools and compliments private test prep services and more general college admissions consulting.
