Tell Your Unique Story

 After grades, rigor, test scores and extracurriculars, the essay is the most vital application component for students to share their personal story.  Most students relate writing an application essay to writing an English essay. Nothing could be further from the truth, as the two are quite different. Think of your essay as your college interview but only online. Many admissions readers, like our consultants know that the most effective essays are developed through multiple drafts and careful consideration of the experiences students share in their pieces. Your college watch will guide you through each phase of the essay development process.


Crafting Your Essay

The essay section gives students the opportunity to show a university the type of applicant they are, including their ability to articulate opinions, thought process, command of language. Students who initiate early college counseling have a better chance of understanding what types of essays meet and exceed expectations during admissions process.

Our consultants have been through the essay-writing process and understand exactly what colleges are looking for: Your voice, Your story, and Your point of excellence. Many of our consultants were once part of the teams that read those essays to determine acceptance into major universities.  Our consultants lead students through the essay development process--from brainstorming personal themes and experiences that culminate in a compelling story which exemplify each student’s authentic voice.
