Is This Service Right For Me?
Our Guided Brainstorming service is best for students who are in the beginning of the college essay process or are still figuring out what they should write about (even if they’ve written several drafts).
What Will I Get?
The college essay is different from most other essays you’ve written in high school.
It’s not just about writing well. You have to craft a compelling story that resonates with admissions officers.
Brainstorming provides the necessary ingredients for a great essay, but many students don’t approach this critical process in the most effective or efficient way.
We’ve developed a framework that includes 4 levels of brainstorming. We’ll guide you through this process to get over writer’s block, better understand yourself, and identify a great story.
You’ll walk away with:
- A clearer sense of what to write about
- An initial structure/outline
- Methodology to further refine your thinking using our framework
Only $99/essay (personal statement of supplement)
