[ Intelligent essays written with love].

I'M KAREN SCHWARZ, THE ESSAYMOM.

Every student has at least one story that captures a facet of their unique selves.  By combing through memories (momentous and mundane) and creating a logical work plan, we will cultivate great essays --  warm, personal and easy to read by overworked admissions officers.

 

A great essay can...

  • Unlock scholarships, merit aid & honors programs.

  • Distinguish you from students with similar GPA, test scores and activities.

 

  • Compensate for weaknesses.
