From U.S. and international medical graduates to applicants for world-leading master, PhD and other graduate programs, seeking coveted positions in the U.S., Canada, Australia and the U.K., our clients come from around the globe with a desire just like yours—to secure life-defining opportunities.
In fields spanning medicine, business, science, law and the humanities, we’re proud of the stellar acceptance rates we’ve helped our clients accomplish, including to first-choice programs and clients with “red flags.”
* The only clients who have used our personal statement services and were not accepted into a program either ignored our suggestions
or did not meet the program’s minimum requirements.
We offer consultation, coaching, editing and proofreading services, and a suite of proprietary services for personal statements.
Consultation & Coaching
Application Review & Strategy: Our Application Review & Strategy service partners you with one of our expert application consultants. The one-on-one service starts with your consultant reviewing your application with you to identify your strengths and weaknesses as an applicant relative to the program you are applying for. Once these are identified, the consultant then works with you to develop a strategy for leveraging your strengths to your greatest advantage and for what specific steps to take to improve in any areas of weakness.
This service is particularly valuable for applicants with red flags in their experience or qualifications, as well as for applicants who have applied to the program previously and not gotten in.
Interview Coaching: Our exceptional Interview Coaching service starts with a 30-minute consultation to get to know you as an applicant, including your strengths and weaknesses and the areas of concern you have in anticipation of the interviews. Your interview coach will provide best-practice interviewing strategies to promote your strengths, mitigate your weaknesses and answer questions in the areas of concern. This is followed by mock interviews, with each mock interview session being split between a question/answer session and a feedback session.
Editing & Proofreading
Editing & Feedback: This professional editing service provides a comprehensive, detailed edit and proofread of your document together with equally comprehensive, detailed feedback. The feedback identifies any item needing improvement that goes beyond the scope of editing, covering both writing and content.
The editing is tailored to the type of document (e.g., application essay, ERAS Application, etc.) and the position being sought (e.g., law school, internal medicine residency, etc.).
The Editing & Feedback service for applicants includes two rounds of review.
Proofreading: Our Proofreading service provides detailed professional proofreading only (e.g., spelling and typographical errors). It does not include editing or feedback.
The proofreading is tailored to the type of document (e.g., CV/resume, MSPE, etc.) with consideration for the position being sought.
We offer four proprietary services for Personal Statements.
PS Development: Our professional PS Development service is for those who want expert, one-on-one guidance for developing their personal statement. It is for those who have written a draft they are unsure about or for those who have only a few ideas or notes, as well as those who don’t know where to start with their personal statement.
With PS Development, we will work one-on-one with you through multiple rounds of development, revision, editing and proofreading to arrive at a finalized, polished personal statement ready for your application.
PS Revision & Critique: Our most popular service for personal statements, PS Revision & Critique service offers much more than simply editing your personal statement. It is a five-round service that provides a comprehensive, detailed edit and revision of your personal statement together with equally comprehensive, detailed feedback.
PS Evaluation: With PS Evaluation, we will provide a thorough evaluation of your personal statement, assessing its strengths and weaknesses, as well as opportunities for improving the personal statement both in writing (e.g., need for a better tone) and content (e.g., need for details).
PS Evaluation does not include revision, editing or proofreading of your personal statement.
PS Proofreading: With PS Proofreading, we will provide proofreading and light editing to correct and improve your personal statement.
PS Proofreading does not include any feedback nor detailed editing or revision, including to improve the length of your personal statement.
