College Essay Guidance

College essays play an incredibly important role in the highly selective admissions process. By employing a "holistic" approach to the admissions process, admissions officers are able to separate students with very similar academic credentials. A college essay is an uncommon genre that must highlight the students' intellect, personality and potential. They provide insights into how you write, how you think and what you're passionate about. Many students and parents don't realize, what a unique opportunity college application essays offer for students to shine and highlight important aspects of themselves not revealed by GPA or test scores.

I chose IvyLeap over other similar services for many reasons, but I'd like to highlight a few.

The countless revisions we went over really made my application shine and finally my dream came true.
