Essay Development Package

Generating powerful ideas for tricky essay questions, and structuring your answers so the admissions committee will love them is one of the most challenging and time-consuming parts of the Graduate & PhD admissions process.

An in-depth discussion with one of our experienced consultants can help you ‘discover’ ideas that can be blended into well-organized and persuasive essays. After a thorough brainstorming session, your consultant will organize your ideas into an easy-to-follow outline from which you can base your essay drafts on.

After your essay drafts take shape we then start our typical deep-dive Essay Analysis & Editing process. This service is perfect for people who are having trouble generating ideas that match the essay questions, or have too many ideas and are unable to prioritize and are facing a time crunch as the deadlines approach.

Essay Analysis & Editing

The essays provide a stage for you to shine and can truly ‘make-or-break’ a graduate school application. 

Are you a person with average credentials but unlimited potential and tremendous passion for your field of study?

Great essays will help the admissions committee understand your value and potential.  Are you a top performer who has already displayed talent in your field of study?  The essays are the place to highlight your successes and ‘make the sale’ to top universities. Our team of talented editors will do much more than make cosmetic changes to grammar and punctuation.

We carefully analyze essays paying close attention to ideas, logic, persuasiveness, and how well writers market themselves.  We then deeply edit the essays and provide in-depth comments instructing the writer on how to improve points of weakness.  In the end, the essays will tell a more compelling story, be more personal, and get the attention of the admissions office.
