Need some help thinking of a creative way to separate yourself from other applicants through your essay? Are you looking for a professional proof reader or are having trouble writing more than just the topic? Either way, ES can help! We will pair you with an instructor that has a background in English and writing. If you do not live in the Philadelphia area, we are happy to set up a virtual appointment to review your essay with you!
This is a strategic option for students who have a draft and would like some initial feedback. Is the message of the essay clear? Does it flow effectively? Is it ready to submit? We'll help you find out! The diagnostic review allows students to email an essay specialist a copy of their essay and receive general feedback in 48 business hours about overall strengths of the piece, as well as areas of opportunity. Suggested service(s) will also be noted, if applicable, to ensure we can help students feel confident their essays are ready for admission teams to review.
Essays by the Hour
Are you unsure of where to begin and need help brainstorming a great idea? Have you started your essay, but are not quite ready for a final review? Come meet with one of our Essay Specialists 1-to-1 to review the essay you have started. Come only once, or come once a week! After the initial 1-to-1 session, in which the essay will be reviewed in detail, an essay timeline can be established to help determine how much more 1-to-1 time will be necessary.
Think your draft is strong and ready for submission? The Intensive Feedback option offers students the opportunity to have two essay specialists thoroughly review a draft asynchronously. They will provide detailed feedback about the whole of the essay, as well as individual aspects within 72 business hours. We'll confirm if it's ready for submission or would benefit from further attention.
A-to-Z Essay Package
The A-to-Z Essay Package provides students with guidance throughout the entire essay-writing process. The package is structured to have five 1-hour appointments that will begin with brainstorming and end with one polished, application-ready essay! All sessions are 1-to-1 with an Essay Specialist to foster a focused and productive learning environment, and the package also offers Intensive Feedback (see above) once a full essay begins to form.
