Learning Beyond Limits: College Admissions Writing Services

The college selection and application process can be an exciting but also overwhelming experience for students and families alike. In the wake of recent college admission scandals, it has become clear that the pressure to produce exceptional applications is at an all-time high. Too high. As a result, many students struggle to produce a competitive yet authentic application, especially when it comes to the essay.

The college application essay is really a hybrid of writing styles (i.e., narrative, expository). It can be a deeply personal reflection of a student’s life experiences condensed into 650 words or less, no small feat for even the most skilled of writers. However, through this process students often discover their unique voice, leading to increased confidence as a writer and future college student.
