Applying for post-secondary education can be very stressful. Our goal is to take some of the burden off your shoulders by helping you with the creative and technical process of writing. Whether you need a fresh pair of eyes to look over your draft, or you need to start from scratch, we can walk with you all the way to your goal.
Step 1: Contact us
Use our contact form to tell us what you need. Provide us with as much information as possible, including:
- your name, nationality, age, educational background
- the type of writing you require (Personal Statement, Statement of Intent, Motivation Letter, Supplementary Application Essay (please provide the prompt(s) if given), Resume, CV, Cover Letter, Reference Letter, Other)
- deadline for submission (Please note that you should approach us at least two weeks prior to the deadline. Rush orders will be charged extra.)
- the school you are applying to, the faculty, and the program (if more than one, please indicate all choices)
- word, character, or page limit (if applicable), and all other standards set by the school
- a written draft if you have one
- whether you have met all the school’s other requirements (GPA, references, resume or CV, volunteer hours, English proficiency (e.g., IELTS, TOEFL), other(s))
Step 2: We’ll assess your needs
Once we have received your information we will assess the scope of the work necessary. We may need more information and ask:
• Do you need an edit or a rewrite of a prepared draft, or do you need to start from scratch?
• Have you already researched the school’s and faculty’s websites for keywords, useful information, requirements, etc.?
• Have you researched the field/industry you wish to join?
• Do you need a face-to-face interview with us to discuss your application (online via Skype)?
Note: some applicants request a simple edit. We can certainly do that for you, though we will also suggest rewrites or to start from scratch if we feel that you have not met the standards of the writing style you need, or if the information you provided is not of the standard that admissions committees tend to look for. It will be up to you to accept or reject these suggestions.
Step 3: Presentation of quote and invoice
Once we have assessed your needs, we will issue a quote for the cost of the project. The timing of the project will depend on your responses to questions and feedback on drafts.
If you are satisfied with the quote and are prepared to entrust us to write your high-quality document, we will send you an invoice for the project via PayPal. We will begin to work on it immediately following payment.
Step 4: Research and Insights
Once payment has been received we will begin working on your Statement, Letter, Resume, etc.
If starting from scratch, we will:
• research the school, program, and field of study/industry to collect keywords, key concepts, and specific requirements.
• carefully look over your resume or CV and any other information you have sent to highlight your skills and the benefits you will provide the program.
• (based on the above research) create a list of questions to gain insight into your past experiences, your personality, your strengths and talents, your possible contributions to the school, program, and field, and any other relevant information.
• schedule an interview (if required). See more details below.
• create a second set of questions based on the answers you provide to the first set of questions and/or the interview.
If working from an existing draft, we will:
• complete a full edit (language, structure, relevance, etc.) and make suggestions for amendments.
• research the school, program, and field of study/industry for additional insights that may benefit your submission.
The time this step requires depends on how quickly you provide us with answers, feedback, comments, etc. The faster you reply, the sooner we move forward.
Step 5: First Draft
With the above research completed, we will begin to work on your first draft. We will:
• establish a captivating opening, with a strong hook and a unifying theme.
• highlight your strengths that we feel will enhance your chances of admission.
• provide a clear trajectory from initial desire to expected outcomes.
• include relevant connections you have to the program and/or industry.
• demonstrate your clear understanding of the program and your determination to succeed therein.
• write a high-quality draft that demonstrates a sophistication of language, yet delivered with a simplicity in terms of readability and interest.
Once completed, we will send you the draft for review. You will be asked to make suggestions, requests, or changes (additions, deletions, clarifications, etc.).
Step 6: Final Draft and Submission
After reviewing the first draft and sending your feedback, we will go back and forth with several more drafts until we have a final draft that is satisfactory to you. This draft will be suitable for submission with your completed application.
Please note that once feedback on the first draft has been received and implemented, wholesale changes to the draft (e.g., new program/school, different focus, etc.) will incur additional charges. If you wish to adjust the written draft to another school, there will be a small fee to do this.
Questions and/or interview:
Many applicants are unfamiliar with the writing standards schools expect; they either have not been taught how to construct a Personal Statement, or they do not know the difference between a Personal Statement and a Statement of Purpose. Moreover, many applicants are unaware of their own strengths and/or the valuable experiences they ought to include in their statements. The questions and interview are crucial tools that help us determine the key features to include in your Statement that will enhance your presentation and help you impress an admissions committee.
