Hourly Essay Plans

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

Here’s how the service works:

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

    The consultant then provides you with feedback and recommends ways to improve. You revise and send the revised versions back.

  2. Edit the micro - Although your advisor checks the macro level, she focuses on the micro, specifically clarity, grammar, style, spelling, and word usage. She then sends you drafts with suggested corrections.
  3. Submit your awesome essay!

How much to buy? That depends on the number of 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 and proceed ASAP.

Initial Essay Package

With the Initial Essay Package, you’ll receive:

  1. Up-front guidance and advising to save you “churn time.” You’ll introduce yourself to your consultant by completing a questionnaire. After reviewing your responses to the questionnaire, your consultant will meet with you via phone or Skype to get better acquainted and explore the best way to present you and your qualifications in your essay. During this brainstorming session, you will discuss a core message, influential experiences to include in the essay, and a structure for your essay.
  2. An outline for your personal statement based on your responses in the questionnaire and the brainstorming session. The outline consists of prompts and bullet points. It is NOT an essay 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 final result. 
  3. Essay editing. Your consultant will review your essay for clarity, grammar, style, spelling, and word usage, and will then return the drafts to you with suggested improvements. You’ll revise it and send it back. You’ll then go back and forth editing and revising this essay until you are happy with it. Most essays benefit from 2-4 volleys.

The Initial Essay Package will give you the confidence of knowing you are submitting an awesome essay.

Our rates provide prompt two-business-day turnaround.

Additional Essay Packages

Since your consultant already knows you well and any brainstorming will take less time, Additional Essay Packages are less expensive than the Initial Essay Packages.

Additional Essay Package


  • One Essay Package provides all the editing and consulting you need for ONE essay at ONE school. Using our assistance in modifying this essay for other schools or programs will incur additional charges.
  • The Additional Essay Package is available for any essay package you purchase after an Initial Essay Package. It cannot be used for your first essay.
  • Packages must all be used in one application cycle.
