University Application Essays

With competition fiercer than ever, many applicants sporting high SAT scores, grades, leadership roles, community service, awards and a multitude of extracurricular activities still receive surprising rejections from their dream schools. A powerful, poetic, insightful and creative college essay with a strong hook and theme can leave that lasting impression and resonance to stand up from the crowd and open the door to academic opportunity.

Specializing in Ivy League Schools and the Common Application essay, I guide students through each stage of the writing process from inception of ideas to logical outline and development, to draft writing, to editing and final polished product.

I provide the critical hand in hand support needed in producing competitive and creative essays that distinguish and reflect the students’ best and truly unique selves.

Words have power. A superior essay showcases how the student thinks and exudes intellectual depth, humility, self-awareness, reflectivity, curiosity and communicates how the respective institution fits with one’s future aspirations.

This guided process brings the richness out of students’ unique stories with essays that harness strong imagery, tone and voice. I aim to inspire students to write at their fullest potential toward reaching their dream school.

I provide expertise on the personal statement as well as supplemental essays and written portions of all college applications and research focused letters of intent for graduate programs (Masters and PhD).
