Brainstorming is the most important step to writing a stellar essay. Often students finish this session with a strong topic selected and opt to continue the writing process with us after this initial intensive.
- 5-hour blocks

We have found that 5-8 hours is typical to go from brainstorming to a final draft. However, every student works at a different pace and when it comes to this critical part of the application process "better right than rushed," is our motto.
Don't forget, there will be supplemental essays for many schools so additional time will be required if a student wants to work with us on those. The best part is that you control your spending. While you will purchase another 5-hour block if more time is needed you will be refunded the hourly rate for any unused hours.

(Many colleges have similar supplemental essays and we show them how to use what they've already written for many other applications).
No watching the clock, so no worrying about how many hours you have left. We have found just the comfort of knowing that we're here as long as it takes relieves an added layer of stress that can be part of the process.
This package is available for students who sign up by October 1st, otherwise, the hourly block option is advisable.
