Service Description

This package is only available to 12th grade students Package is for 1 personal statement (Common App) essay, 4 UC personal insight questions, plus 2 supplemental essays Timeline runs from June to November of senior year 4 face to face meetings plus up to 7 hours of editing offline for the Advisor First meeting will include essay brainstorming Timelines will be strictly enforced Students will be given ample time between meetings to work on their essays Essays will be reviewed in a timely manner and students will be given specific dates depending on application deadlines If you decide to apply to more than 5 colleges or need more hours of consulting time, a reduced hourly fee will be agreed upon before continuing. Timelines and deadlines will be strictly enforced. Booking sessions will be the responsibility of the student. If you plan to apply to 10 universities, then you're looking at around 12-16 essay prompts plus a personal essay which can be used in the Common App. Deciding on essay topics is the first step and brainstorming on how to write the essay will take up most of the time. The biggest mistake students make is getting too many proof readers reading their essays. While we recommend one or two eyes on your essay to guide you along the way, we do not write your essay for you nor do we excessively edit it. It's your essay and it should shed light on who you are, not your counselor or English teacher. We do offer guidance on topics, writing styles, etc to enhance your writing. Remember colleges want to get to know you and you're the only one who can convey that. Please call or email to make an appointment.


Cancellation Policy

For cancellations, please contact us at least 24 hours prior to your appointment. Fees will apply for no shows.
