Position yourself to gain admission!
PES counselors help guide students to construct powerful college application essays to help you get admitted to your favorite colleges. We begin with carefully offering feedback as you choose an effective topic and begin to structure your essay. Next, through multiple drafts, we bring attention to areas where you may want to fine tune language choices to create a refined product.
We are very careful to not offer too much. Together, we make sure your essay shares what you want to say about yourself, using your language and voice!
As part of your program, we are glad to advise broadly regarding the application process, your college list, and future plans. Please note, we do not specialize in leading students through a complete career, academic major, and college search. (We are glad to offer referrals to strong college counselors who can help more in these areas.) At PES, we focus primarily on helping students gain admission.
Our standard program consists of 4 1.5 hour in-person or online counseling sessions along with 4 additional hours of remote essay review and feedback over email.
This program is designed to guide a student through the 4 UC essays, the primary Common Application essay, and the Common App writing supplements, or a comparable list of writing tasks.
Naturally, we are glad to customize or extend this program to meet your individual needs.
