Whether you know me or not, I think I might have something positive to offer you.
Are you tired of getting the same old feedback on your essays? More detail here, avoid comma splices there, drones a teacher. Uhm, it sounds kind of boring, comments a peer.
Grammar help should be the bare minimum, but standing out in a competitive applicant pool requires a lot more thought and re-articulation. It’s more than surface level evaluation and “advice” that feels like the same every time.
So if you’re interested in getting comprehensive help on the essays that you’re sending into college admissions offices, send the following information to this blog’s email address (firstname.lastname@example.org): your name, what college the essay is for, what the prompt(s) is, and a draft of your essay. I will ask for other pieces of background information (extracurriculars, that sort of stuff) as necessary.
What have you got to lose? If you don’t like my advice, you don’t have to use it.
In my senior year of high school, I proofread dozens of my friends’ college essays, so I’ve got a decent amount of experience. I want to sharpen my own skills.
With every essay received, I’ll give a detailed and personalized response that will go above and beyond grammar and punctuation to include content and structure.
Some colleges only give you 250 words to explain one aspect of your life that might require a book; we often know exactly what we want to say, but are unsure of how to convey it. Hopefully, we’ll be able to make a meaningful impression in 250 words or so.
Of course, I won’t take your essay and re-write it for you. We’ll keep it you, but we’ll make it the best representation of you possible.
