You're a unique person, with unique experiences and ambitions. But how do you best show this in response to a specific essay prompt?

With the Full Essay Service, your PrepScholar Admissions consultant will guide you from the beginning to the end. Don't know what to write about? We've got you covered.

Full Essay Service

Craft the perfect essay, from the ground up. We take you from brainstorming to final draft.

Start Full Essay Service

1) We start by understanding you and your unique experiences with a comprehensive life interview. We'll cover your childhood experiences, your main hobbies, your career goals, funny stories you remember, your personal obstacles, and much, much more. We leave no stone unturned - at this point, your consultant might know you better than some of your friends!

How It Works

2) Next, we brainstorm compelling topics to write about. You have unique experiences to share, and your consultant will help you discover what those are. We'll keep developing ideas until we get something you love.

3) With our topic in mind, we start working on a draft. You'll take the first try, writing in your unique style and voice (this is important! You need to sound like yourself). Your consultant will work with you on perfecting your language and message, giving expert editing advice.

With the Full Essay Service, you'll have unlimited essay revisions. So don't worry - if you aren't loving your essay, we can start with another topic.

4) After hard work, we'll end with a fully polished essay. You'll feel so much more confident about your application and how you'll stand out. We guarantee you'll love your final essay.

School Selection Strategy

It's important to choose a range of schools that match your interests and balance your chances of getting in.

You probably know a few schools you want to apply to. We'll round that out by researching schools that fit into a complete admissions strategy. This may include schools that offer great financial aid for your unique situation, special programs for your interests, or reach/safety schools.

Timeline Management

Managing multiple college applications with their unique deadlines and requirements can be frustrating. We make it easy for you, tracking every task you need to finish and making sure you have plenty of time to spare.

Each application has multiple steps - including planning, brainstorming, editing, and finalizing - and we make sure you're on track every step of the way.

Full Essay Service for Every School

For every essay you have to write, we'll give the full treatment. We'll brainstorm topics, write and edit drafts, and finalize essays before submission.

With unlimited revisions with your consultant, you'll craft the perfect essays that make you stand out.

Full Application Review

Every piece of your application matters because it forms a complete picture. We review every piece of your application, from descriptions of extracurricular activities and your awards to checking for typos before submission. When you click Submit, you'll be confident you left no stone unturned.

Recommendation Letter Strategy

Who do you ask for recommendation letters, and how do you ask them to get the best letter?

We'll teach you what leads to top-tier recommendation letters and form a winning strategy for getting them.

Interview Prep

The interview is a test to evaluate you face-to-face as a person. There are many ways to disappoint here and make unintentional mistakes. We'll prep you on the most common interview questions for every school you apply to, and practice so you get comfortable.

Waitlist/Rejection Strategy

If you're waitlisted or rejected, it's not necessarily out of your hands. You can still pull out all the stops to maximize your chance of getting admitted. We'll guide you through how to contact schools and convince them you're the one they need to admit.

Financial Aid Negotiation

The financial aid package you receive isn't necessarily the best one you can get. We'll take all your acceptances and play the schools against each other, so you end up with the best financial aid offer at your top-choice school.

Final School Decision

Finding it hard to decide which school to attend? We'll arrange college visits and help you evaluate all the pros and cons so you'll make a decision you won't regret.

Consulting Time

Other companies restrict the number of hours you get. We just want to get the job done right.

See PrepScholar as your personal mentor you can count on at any time.

Annual Mentorship Package

Holistic Student Review

We start by understanding everything there is to know about you. We want to know where you are, where you've been, and where you want to go. This is going to shape the direction of your college application and your future career goals. 

We customize everything about your college application to you, so you'll stand out as a unique individual.

12-Month College Application Plan

The mentorship package covers 12 months of service, covering an entire school year and summer.

During this time, your consultant will build a detailed, step-by-step action plan covering every little detail to strengthen your college application. We'll hold you accountable and set regular deadlines so you don't get overwhelmed.

Coursework Planning

Your high school coursework requires fine balance. It needs to be challenging enough to show your academic skills, but not be so challenging that it destroys your GPA and free time. Your coursework should highlight your passion - don't just take what everyone else is taking.

We'll design the ideal coursework sequence for you to achieve these goals.

GPA Improvement Strategy

Getting A's can get tough for anyone. We diagnose the reasons you're not getting higher grades. Then we build a customized study strategy for every troublesome class to improve your homework grades and test scores so you can increase your GPA. 

More importantly, we teach you how to learn, so you'll get better grades for the rest of your academic career.

Test Prep Strategy

It's critical to get great SAT/ACT scores that qualify you for your dream schools. We'll provide a customized study plan for your test prep, integrating practice tests, content drills, and test-taking strategy to maximize your score. We'll also guide you through SAT Subject Tests, if applicable.

If you need extra help through 1-on-1 tutoring with PrepScholar, we'll provide you a discounted rate.

Extracurricular Management

Being well-rounded is the path to disappointment in college applications. You need to stand out through deep achievement in your area of passion.

We'll help you develop a "spike" through your extracurriculars to stand out among the rest. We'll brainstorm ideas and push you to achieve more than you thought possible. Best of all, you'll enjoy your time doing it.

Start Annual Mentorship Package

Not applying to college this current school year? You're in the perfect position.

While senior year is when you'll submit applications, most of your college application is built in the freshman, sophomore, and junior years. This is when you build your college application by taking challenging courses, acing standardized tests, developing world-class extracurriculars, and nurturing relationships with your recommendation letter writers.

PrepScholar's Annual Mentorship Package is designed to develop your college application to be as strong as possible. You'll be in a much better position to apply as a senior. Below is an overview of what your personal admissions mentor will do with you.

Teacher/Counselor Relationships

The best recommendation letters come from teachers and counselors who know you as a person, beyond your homework and grades. We'll coach you on how to build fulfilling relationships with your letter writers, without coming across as insincere. 

Even better, you'll enjoy developing deeper relationships with your mentors.

Career Exploration

As a teenager, you don't have to know what you want to do for the rest of your life. But having a direction is helpful to nurture your passion and tell your application narrative.

We'll help you understand your life goals, then structure opportunities to explore broadly. This will set you on a good path to make the most out of college.

Personality Development

Picture the ideal person you want to be, with the personal traits you wish you had. 

We'll help you develop into that person, whether that means being more outspoken, taking more risks, reducing anxiety, or organizing your life better. We care about your long-term development, beyond your college application.

Summer Activity Planning

If you want to maximize your chances of getting into your reach schools, you need to make the most out of your summer. 

We'll structure your time to cover test prep, extracurriculars, and academic work, while also giving you time to relax.

Consulting Time

We focus on getting you the best result possible, not on penny-pinching you for hours.

Hear from a Customer

"My consultant was AMAZING. She gave me such a personalized approach to my college application, highlighting my strengths so that I stood out among my classmates. From the very first meeting she was incredibly thorough, going through every major event in my life and high school career to understand who I am as a person. This made brainstorming for all my essays that much easier, and she taught me things I didn't realize about myself.

On top of this, she helped me figure out my Early Decision strategy, prepare for interviews, and met with me whenever I was really stressed. I don't know how I would have gotten through college applications without her."

"We signed up for PrepScholar because my son Arjun was getting stuck on the essays. He was worried about how he'd look to colleges and this seemed to give him huge writer's block.

The best thing about PrepScholar's Full Essay Service is how personal it is. Arjun really felt like he was understood by his consultant, and it wasn't just a cookie-cutter approach. Arjun was very happy with the topics that we brainstormed and the essays that we worked on. Turnaround was fast and Arjun never felt like he was waiting.

In the end we are very happy with our results and I recommend PrepScholar to all the families with younger students I know."

I found it incredibly helpful that your consultant not only offers ideas for the college essays but will also constantly read over your edits/drafts and offer advice. I also liked how we got to discuss and plan for other aspects of the college application process.

I feel like David and I have built a personal relationship. I feel as if we understand each other as if we've been friends for years. Because David understands me so well, he almost has the ability to 'get inside of my head.' Junior year was much easier with a personal consultant to help me manage all my activities, grades, tests, and upcoming college applications. Thanks so much - can't wait to submit my applications!

"We are really impressed with our consultant's work on my daughter's essays. There's a night and day difference in the starting and ending drafts that my daughter would never have been able to produce. My daughter felt like she got so much helpful feedback and reworked the original topic into a more interesting story."
