Laser Sharp Approach
The essay is by far the most important part of the application process. A solid essay can get you in, and a poor one will keep you out. If you were to ask me what’s the secret of getting in, it’s the personal statement – the holy grail of college admissions, especially for the Ivy League.
With so many students with top scores, grades, and even national competitions, the essay is the one place in the application where your story and narrative comes to life – that you’re not just another statistic to the admissions committee. And trust me, we write incredible personal statements. After my program, my students become amazing writers who understand how to capture the depth of their experiences.
I’ve seen top students (including Math Olympiad Qualifiers, for example) get turned down by every single Ivy League they applied to because they simply neglected the importance of the personal statement. I’d say the soft factors like the common app personal statement, supplemental essays, letters of recommendation, and interview carry just as much weight as the academic and extracurricular profile.
A typical essay can take multiple drafts to complete. By working closely with you on perfecting the syntax, content, tonality, linguistics, and dynamics of the essay, you will produce powerful, thought-provoking personal statements that demonstrate the personal qualities that ultimately define you, leaving a lasting impression on the admissions officers. By the time we’re through, you can be sure that your essay will be at the highest level.
Based on essays alone, I have been able to get even academically subpar students into the Ivy League. My deep experience is unmatched – I know exactly what the admissions officers are looking for in these essays, and I do everything in my power to demonstrate your leadership, passion, community involvement, intellectual curiosity, dedication, and well-roundedness in your writing to the admissions committee.
