Q: Do you only edit the common app and University of Michigan essays? 

A: Absolutely not. Our team is specialized in editing college application essays for all schools, as well as transfer application, scholarship, and study abroad essays.

Q: Will you write my essays for me?

A: Short answer, no. Plagiarism is a serious offense, and that is not what we are here to do. We are here to identify compelling stories about yourself, comb through the nitty gritty of each essay, and help you enhance your writing by line-editing each essay.

Q: How long do you work with us? 

A: Depends on how many sessions you choose to do with us!

Q: How do we meet for the coaching sessions?

A: Due to COVID-19, we will always meet virtually via Google Hangout. 

Q: Will I be allowed to choose which coach I want? 

A: Typically, you are assigned to a certain mentor. However, if there is something about a coach that you believe resonates with your career and academic goals, we can work to make sure you receive insights from that specific coach.
