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.
Read about one of our students who was accepted to 7 Ivy League schools in Business Insider.
3x likelihood of acceptance at top 10 schools.
We triple our students' chances of getting accepted to the most competitive colleges in the country.
$83,000 average scholarship size.
Many scholarships will require you to write an essay. No problem!
In our Essay Specialist Program, you'll be paired 1-on-1 with your very own expert essay consultant who will work with you on your essays through every phase of the process: brainstorming, drafting, editing, and putting together a final draft. Because your consultant will be able to spend more time with you to understand your goals and applicant profile, he or she will also be able to help ensure all of your essays make sense in the context of the rest of your application. Since admissions officers review your essays holistically in the context of your entire resume and profile, the Essay Specialist Program is ideal for students who have multiple essays and care about how admissions officers perceive their application as a whole.
Need someone to help with your essay quickly? If you submit your essay online to our Rapid Essay Review program, our team of essay consultants will be able to provide comprehensive revisions, edits, and comments and have your essay returned to you via email within a time frame that you specify.
If you want help with multiple essays and want to ensure all of your essays are working together in the context of the rest of your application, we recommend meeting with our team to learn more about our Essay Specialist Program packages.
If you just want quick advice on your essays and don't need to meet with someone, we recommend our Rapid Essay Review service.
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.
