Make your college essays STAND OUT so you GET IN
Great grades and test scores are not good enough when applying to college. 47% of college bound seniors have an 'A-' GPA or higher. While initial applicant pool cuts are based on test scores and transcripts, admissions officers turn their attention to the essays when deciding who to admit. Seniors, the best way to improve your odds of admission in December is to refine your essays to create compelling narratives that demonstrate your ability to add value to a college.

Last year I had the opportunity to work with Greg as he helped me quickly complete my college admissions process. Greg was able to get to know me very quickly, understand my concerns, and help me incorporate specific aspects into my college essays. With just knowing me for a few hours, we promptly began writing school specific essays and revamping my Common Application just weeks before every deadline. Greg was an essential part of my college admissions process as he truly understood what was important to me, what I planned on pursuing in the future, how to provide essential feedback and ideas for my essays, and because he was able to provide insight into an abundant list of colleges that he thought would be great fits for me.

Exactly two weeks before the January 1st deadline and not even a quarter of the way done with my essays, I had the opportunity to meet with Greg in person to help utilize the advice from his book in the most personal way. In a matter of hours, Greg picked up on my exact style, interests, and personality, which shaped the theme of my application. With Greg, I completely revamped my Common Application Essay, completed about forty essays drawing on the crucial techniques he suggested. Greg’s biggest strength is tuning into his client’s individualized styles and themes, and encouraging them to draw everything back to that style and theme to create a strong and consistent idea of who the admissions officers are reading about. Greg encouraged me to dig deeper in how I presented myself and made sure that the admissions officers were getting to know me the best that they could.
