Professional SOP Editing Services

Hourly Statement of Purpose Editing Plans

If you don't need comprehensive, start-to-finish statement of purpose assistance, but need help perfecting a draft you already have, then we recommend our SOP editing hourly plans. This way, you only pay for what you need.

Here's how our statement of purpose editing service works:

  1. Review and critique the macro - Your consultant will review your statement of purpose and check for overall readability and interest. They check if you have:
    • Answered the question.
    • Presented yourself distinctively.
    • Organized your statement of purpose logically.
    • Developed engaging openings and effective conclusions.

    Your consultant then provides you with feedback and recommends ways to improve your statement of purpose. You revise and send the new SOPs back.

  2. Edit the micro - Although your consultant checks the macro level, they will also check on the micro, specifically for clarity, grammatical mistakes, punctuation mistakes, writing style, spelling errors, and word usage. They will send you SOP drafts with suggested corrections.

  3. Submit your compelling statement of purpose to wow the admissions committee.

How much will you need to purchase? That depends on the number of SOP drafts as well as the quality of your writing. You can either obtain a free estimate before purchasing or use the estimate guidelines to purchase your SOP editing services and proceed ASAP.

Initial Statement of Purpose Packages

With the Initial Statement of Purpose Package, you'll receive professional SOP editing including:

  1. Up-front guidance and advising to save you “churn time.” You introduce yourself to your consultant via a questionnaire. After reviewing your completed questionnaire, your consultant will meet with you on the phone or via Zoom to get to know you better and discuss the best way to present you and your qualifications in your statement of purpose. During this brainstorming session, you will discuss a core idea, seminal experiences to include in the statement of purpose, and a structure for the statement of purpose. 
  2. An outline for your essay based on your responses in the questionnaire and the brainstorming session. The outline consists of prompts and bullet points. It is NOT a draft. Clients say that the conversation and the outline give them the direction they need to write, save time, and ultimately help them produce a superior statement of purpose.
  3. SOP editing. Your consultant checks your statement of purpose for clarity, grammar, style, spelling, and word usage. They then send you drafts with suggested corrections. You revise it and send it back. You then go back and forth editing and revising this statement of purpose until you are happy with it. Most statements of purpose benefit from 2-4 reviews.

The Statement of Purpose Package will give you the confidence of knowing you are submitting a compelling statement of purpose.

Additional Statement of Purpose Packages

Since your consultant already knows you well and any brainstorming will take less time, Additional SOP Packages are less expensive than the Initial Statement of Purpose Package. You still benefit from the professional SOP editing services outlined above.

Additional SOP Editing Service Package



  • The Initial Statement of Purpose Package provides all the SOP editing and consulting you need for ONE statement of purpose at ONE school. Using our assistance in modifying this essay for other schools will incur additional charges.

  • The Additional Statement of Purpose Package is available for any essay assistance you purchase after an Initial Statement of Purpose Package. It cannot be used for your first statement of purpose.

  • Statement of Purpose Packages must be entirely used in one application year.

  • If you request to change consultants or work with a second consultant, you will incur additional charges.
