You feel good. Your essay is pretty much there. But you want a pair of fresh, unbiased eyes to catch any errors and make sure your story is clear and compelling. Sign up for Essay Polishing and relax knowing you'll submit a clean essay that gives you your best shot at admission.


You have a draft, but you're not sure it'll convince a selective school. I'll review it for structure, content, and theme and within 48 hours guide you to a more engaging, insightful story that admissions officers look for. I'll polish up a second draft with proofreading and final suggestions.


You're starting from scratch. That's great! We'll kick off with a 1-hour video or phone conversation to discuss your ideas, determine your theme, and give your story shape. You'll submit a rough draft for feedback, followed by two more drafts so we can whip your essay into ideal shape.
