[ Effective essays written with love, not AI].

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, each of my clients cultivate essays that distinguish their application because only they could write them. 

A thoughtful essay tells admissions officers that you're serious about your application, and that you have the patience and discipline to share your ideas in writing.  AI will fix your grammar but remove your personality. Would you rather eat a Twinkie or a homemade brownie made with real butter?

 

A great essay can...

  • Unlock scholarships, merit aid & honors programs.

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

 

  • Compensate for soft spots elsewhere in your application.
