Essay Tune-Up

Do you already have a personal statement or supplemental essays drafted, but you’re not feeling 100% confident about it? Then our hourly plan is perfect for you. This efficient service gets right to the business of fine-tuning your essay, and it’s priced by the hour, so you’ll only pay for what you need.

Here’s how it works:

Step 1: Broad Review

You’ll send the personal statement draft you’ve already created to your Counselor. They will give it a once over, focusing primarily on readability and coherence.

Step 2: Detailed Edit

Once your Counselor has helped you shape your big ideas, it’s time to focus on details. They’ll hone in on elements like clarity, grammar, style, spelling, and word usage. Once they’ve finely combed through your draft, they’ll send it back to you with suggested corrections.

Step 3: Submit Your Awesome Essay

After you’ve made all the corrections, your essay should be in good shape for you to do a final read through and send it on its way. It’s that easy. If you’re wondering how many hours to buy, consider the number of drafts you want reviewed. Then think about the general quality of your writing and how close your current draft is to being application-ready.

Estimated time needed for a personal statement: Between 1.5 and 2.5 hours depending on how much applicant writing is already done and the how many rounds of feedback are requested.
