Because our team knows the right questions to ask, we pull students through the essay writing process in a matter of days, not weeks or months. We take just ten students each year and work with them one-on-one. Our staff includes head writing coach and Catherine Ahearn, PhD and a staff of six Ivy-educated and admissions-experienced editors to review essays. Our team’s combined admissions experiences ensure success for each student.
Though based in Boston, our team works with students across the US and around the world. We work with all types of students with different learning styles, college goals, and career paths, including transfer students.
