Editing and Developing Supplements: One of the most overlooked yet critical components of an application is the supplemental essay questions. These are often used by highly competitive schools to gauge interest, which is a key factor in admissions decisions. Most clients whom we help with the common, or main essay, will then ask us to work with their student an hourly basis to brainstorm and develop talking drafts of supplemental essays. This service is billed at $275/hr. (in 15-minute increments). Schedule time here.
