College Essays are more important than they have ever been

The ACT/SAT is optional for many colleges and for some, they are not considered at all

The essay and resume portions of the application have heightened influence

Most students don't have a resource trained in how to make a college essay stand out to an admission team

The College Entrance Essay is a daunting and essential part of the college application process. For the UC Application, students are given 8 prompts and asked to answer 4 of them in 350 words or less. The Common Application, which is used by most private schools, consists of a choice between 6 different prompts. Most private schools, in addition to the Common App essay, require multiple supplemental essays on their applications.

We assist students in the planning and editing of their college application essays for both the UC Application and the Common Application. In these sessions, although they consist of hard work and dedication, we attempt to bring forth the true voice of your student in such a way as to spark the interest of the college admissions counselors.

We have coached over 200 students in the writing of their essays and have helped them gain admission to Ivy Leagues, UCs and other state University as well as many private schools.

Schools where our students have earned acceptances include: Harvard, Stanford, UC Berkeley, UCLA Caltech, Georgia Tech, Johns Hopkins, Pomona, University of Chicago, Rice, Loyola Marymount, Carnegie Mellon, Baylor, NYU and Chapman University and many more.
