Writing for Applications

Writing for Applications

Through the process of writing strong application essays, our students become better writers. We are often asked to prepare students for interviews (e.g. admissions, scholarship, internships), but when we are working with a student on the essay writing process there is a good chance they will also be better prepared for interviews. Our writing process forces students to think deeply about what matters to them, and learn to communicate those values and characteristics through their essays and later during interviews. Our students regularly get into their top pick schools and receive thousands of dollars in scholarships, and even as important, they develop a stronger sense of who they are in the process. For over a decade, we have assisted students with their essay process in order to apply to a variety of programs, including: state schools, Ivy League schools, small private schools, liberal schools, graduate school, honors colleges, prestigious scholarship competitions, as well as the nomination process for the military academies.

We also work with students to develop strong resume language. This language can be translated onto their college applications, Linkedin, and scholarship applications. Our hope is to help train them in this important form of communication so that they will feel confident throughout their career to update this important document.
