College Admissions Consulting
We’re here to help at every step of the way.
Since our inception we’ve been helping students in Wayne and beyond navigate the admissions process and craft compelling admissions essays that tell their stories best. Whether your child is applying to Ivy League or State Universities, whether he or she needs help with common app personal statements or supplemental essays, we do it all.
How we can help
What makes for the perfect essay?
The Perfect Topic
This is an essay’s foundation. You can write the most well-written narrative ever, but if you land on the wrong topic, it will fall flat. Students should write about themselves (not grandma, their best friend, or their hero) and present themselves as likable and interesting. Want to know some of the biggest mistakes and bad topics students choose? We wrote a nice blog article for you.
Spoiler Alert: you probably want to avoid sports essays!
Painting a Picture
We weren’t there for your horrible experience at summer camp. What was the temperature like? Was it cloudy or sunny? Was there an earthy smell from the damp soil that hovered in the air?
Painting a picture for the reader is one of the the things that all great writers do. We’ll help your child write in a way that paints a picture in the mind’s eye of the reader, while maintaining their unique voice.
Remember when you were 17 and thought you had life all figured out? We do too.
By showing admissions counselors that you’ve grown as a person and that you’re open to your continued growth, you show them that you’ll bring maturity and humility to their campus come fall.
Do you write students’ essays for them?
We do not. Not only would that be unethical, but it would rob from students the satisfaction and introspection that they would gain from going through the essay process themselves.
However, what we do provide is a process, from brainstorming to putting on the final touches of the essay, that helps students craft a captivating essay that complements the other aspects of their application.
We do this by asking the right questions to discover the perfect topic, guiding students to write with detail and intrigue, organizing that story, and proofreading and providing grammatical edits.
