About Mike

If you are an average student, stand 7'9" and can dunk a basketball, then you don't need an outstanding essay. If you are an above average to great student and are seeking out a top-tier school, then let's talk. I'm looking to help those students with a better than 3.5 GPA or 2000+ sat or 29+ ACT score. At top schools you will be placed in that "consider" pile and your essays (along with ECs) will make the difference. And I promise, the process does not have to spike your blood pressure.
I just helped my own son with his essays and he got accepted to a "Most Difficult" university. And if money matters, your acceptance into a school with a large endowment will insure a higher percent of Financial Aid - something your parents will certainly be grateful for.
I've been a member of the Writer's Guild of America for three decades and piecing together a terrific essay is like setting precious stones in a watch - it's challenging but it will sparkle when done. Admission counselors read piles of applications and then tons of essays and if you don't shake them awake from that first sentence, then let's hope you know the university president personally. Writing a great essay is NOT like running a race where you finish strong. Essays have to start fast, get a head of steam and then finish with a kick. You also must have a hook to come back to and I can teach you that.
Keep in mind: I will NOT write your essay for you. I will help guide you and correct mistakes. I will edit your piece and make suggestions. But this must be YOU "in there" wanting the reader to clearly see where you've come from, what you're doing and where you are going.
If you're looking for that edge, let me know. I will not guarantee you getting into Harvard, Stanford or UPenn, but I will help you position yourself to optimize that personal statement so that you get the attention you deserve.
