Increasing applications from the U.S.

I’m fairly new to ‘online’ writing (I have a total of 10 articles submitted and published online, through 3 different sites). At some point in time here, though, I hope to bring my writing to a bit of a ‘higher’ level.

We do not claim that these essays areby any means perfect.

Impeccable grades and test scores alone are no longer enough to set students apart from the crowd.

There are also numerous aspects that all applicants should avoid.

Wow, excellent list! But no mention of Huffington Post. They don’t pay but the exposure is excellent, esp some of thei subcategories like Huff/Post50.

Hencethese essays have been critiqued.

Hi Polina,
Each publication will vary, although I’ve heard that many will accept submissions from around the world!
Good luck,

There is still no better way to introduce yourself than through an admission essay.

Your comments and guidelines are a terrific help ...'

“The dark patterned armchair in the corner of the living room is always there. It holds her and her worries. It holds the pain that is still blatantly apparent. It holds my mum and as I gaze into her frail weak eyes- I still feel the torture she endures on a daily basis. Her eyes dart back and forth yet I know she hides her pain. She's crumbling inside and will not be healed- just like the tatty hole in the arm chair in which she picks and picks until no more foam can be found. She picks and picks at her brain- blaming herself "Why us?”, “Why my baby?" circulating her thoughts at every turn. There are no answers and although I thought things will never be the same again... I now know that they never will.

You may have absolutely no idea where to start.

Punctuation: Use a variety. Everything that you see in a Close Reading paper should be present in an essay: colon, parenthesis, ellipsis, semi-colon, dash etc.

We understand that each of you has a story to tell.

Imagery: Use a variety of imagery to describe your emotions. Compare your sadness, tears, happiness, excitement, nerves, panic etc. to something else.

These OWL resources will help you develop and refine the arguments in your writing.

That is where our services come in.

Thanks for this great list, Alexis!
Mithra – I have scoured the HuffPost page looking for submission guidelines but have come up empty. The “Send us a blog-pitch” link is not working either. Any suggestions? Thank you!

Our gifted writers are familiar with the changing face of college admissions.

Crabiel, National Merit Scholar, Fulbright etc.

Particularly at universities that don't conduct interviews, the essay is a student's only opportunity to introduce themselves to their college of choice.

After all, we were among the first online essay and personal statement development services.

“Acting: it has been my sole ambition ever since the day I met David Tennant on a plane coming back from holiday. We sat for hours chatting and planning my next step in my soon to be startling career… Well no, not really, but this is what acting is all about - pretending to be someone else for day, an hour, a while.
