Admissions Essay Advisory Services


Writing the Admissions Essay(s) for college, graduate programs, medical and law schools induces stress and fear because of the fierce competition. As an author and writing coach I can guide you through the daunting essay process Ė a creative journey and make it fun. I will be your muse, mentor and editor. You will discover how to transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.

As we brainstorm together for that different idea which sets you apart, you will feel more empowered to write your paper. Then we will outline it. Afterwards, I will show you how to edit your words, to use your 5 senses to communicate concretely: to show instead of tell. You will learn how to become a competent writer who counts his words and makes them count.

While the success rate for getting you into the college of your choice is also heavily dependent on other factors such as your SATís, GMATís, GREís, LSAT's scores and your grade point average, the essay is a critical component and can help you stand out. Donít let it eliminate you.
