Every essay submission will receive feedback on:

Concept and Theme

The largest component of your review will focus on the concept you’ve chosen and the themes it conveys. We will tell you if your concept is successful, needs some work, or needs to be changed altogether. If your essay doesn’t strike the right tone thematically, we’ll point you in the right direction by editing your language and approach to properly convey the story you’re trying to tell.

Diction and Syntax

Once you have your concept and theme down, you need to write well. Our edits and comments breakdown your implementation in terms of its diction and syntax so that you will better understand how admissions offices perceive each word you’ve meticulously chosen. We’ll make sure your essay is exciting to read — sometimes even one word can make all the difference.

Spelling and grammar perfection

You spent almost four years working extremely hard in high school and another four weeks working on this essay. You’ve read it too many times to catch the slightest grammar mistakes that could render this essay completely unsuccessful. Our team of essay specialists will comb through your writing and identify all spelling and grammar mistakes so that you can submit your essay worry-free.

Competitive pricing

You pay based on the max word count of the prompt. For example, the Common App is always billed for 650 words. If the word count you selected is incorrect, you will be notified via email after submission. After submitting your essay on the form below, you will be able to securely pay via debit or credit card.

We value your privacy.

We will never share your work with anyone. It’s your essay, after all. Our platform is highly secured to ensure your privacy.
