A college essay is not an academic essay, and it’s not an essay that you would write in English class. College essays are a completely unique type of writing that somehow became one of the most important parts of a college application — despite the fact that almost no student is ever really taught how to write them in high school.
At CollegeVine, we’ve perfected the art of writing essays and help students turn them into their secret weapons. And since we know that every student’s goals are different, we’ve created two different ways to work with us on your essays.
Stand out with a strong application.

Many scholarships will require you to write an essay. No problem!
In our Essay Program, we work with students during every phase of the process: brainstorming, drafting, editing, and putting together a final draft. We’ll also make sure your essay makes sense in the context of the rest of your application. This ensures your application is as strong as it can be for admissions officers.
Our team has compiled the most successful essays from the past few years and made them available for free so that you can see what we think quality essays look like.

I am a big fan of CollegeVine and the CollegeVine process. You don’t write the essays and you leave the author’s voice and work intact. You primarily give suggestions. This is the right way. Alexander’s writing actually improved dramatically through the process. I can honestly say that his writing skills grew tremendously in those two months - more than in his classes! I am already enthusiastically recommending CollegeVine to friends.
