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

What Clients Say

I just wanted to say thank for this service. We used it last night on 2 essays as we were struggling with the early action deadline looming. The responses were quick, the edits were great ( I was never an English major) and feedback encouraging to put our minds at ease that we were on the right path.

Thanks also for your detailed comments and instructions as well as your encouraging compliments. I'll follow your advice the best I can and continue to count on you for reviewing the next draft.

We’ve recently used your essay editing and were thrilled with the feedback. I shared the feedback with the counselor to possibly share with others and she thought it was a lot of money. She recommended we try another site that was much cheaper. I sent them the exact same essay that we sent collegevine for about $23. Let’s just say that the results were about $23 worth! I then sent it to the counselor and she agreed that collegevine was much better & worth the money!
