Write with the impact of an award-winning copywriter.

I'm Bruce Jonas and I help students find their own voices and craft unique stories that will resonate with the gatekeepers of the schools they want to attend. My experiences in marketing and university recruitment trained me to listen to what makes people unique and write stories that persuade specific audiences like admissions officers:

  • Successful marketing copywriter and creative director for global companies like American Express, T-Mobile, and AT&T.

  • A.B. from Brown with honors in Art History; A.B. in Classics; recipient of List Award for Outstanding Honors Thesis.

  • Alumni interviewer for Brown since 1998.

  • M.A. from Johns Hopkins in Art History.

  • Marketing and recruitment director for the Hudson Graduate Centers of Long Island University.

I treat applicants like clients, not kids or students. And I collaborate with them to make improvements, not issue grades or critiques. My innovative spoken writing approach takes the pressure off, so we can focus on convincing admissions officers your child belongs at their school!
