Started by Linda Abraham in the early 1990s, Accepted.com grew out of an editing service working with college students in West Los Angeles. Linda discovered she was repeatedly asked to edit personal statements for grad school. She realized that if she applied journalistic techniques to the personal statements she was editing, she could help applicants make their stories engaging, not merely well-written. Recognizing the demand for a service dedicated to helping graduate school applicants write revealing, compelling, and articulate essays, she founded Accepted.
When you ask Linda why she is so passionate about her work, here's what she'll tell you:
"I've always been fascinated by people's life stories. Ever since I was a young child, I have loved reading biographies. And everyone-not just the famous-has a story. Discovering that story, and helping applicants articulate it, is a fascinating process."
"Additionally, the editing process is a game to me. I was a writing tutor as an undergrad at UCLA and received excellent training there. I found then, and still find today, that figuring out the best way to express a phrase or tell a story is like solving a puzzle. Almost as good as Sudoku."
"Finally, I love hearing, 'Thank you. I'm in!'"
