If you are applying to college, you’ll be writing a personal statement. It’s a nerve-wracking prospect: you have to be interesting, smart, and memorable to a group of people you’ve never met—and all in just a few pages. Sound tough? You’re right: it is.
You don’t want to sound like every other applicant or make the basic mistakes that many students make. We can help you with that. For $20, we’ll go over your essay and offer you a thorough response (click here to see samples of our work).

We’ll give you quick, expert, useful feedback at an economical price. Or, if you prefer, we offer an expedited editing package so you can meet your looming application deadline, or multi-step editing packages if you feel you need more than one round of feedback and edits.

We’ve helped hundreds of applicants; you can see some of their testimonials below. We love what we do! And don’t worry: The application process intimidates even the most accomplished student. Having a quality reader can help ease your mind, and focus your edits. Take a look at our editing packages; we think you’ll find one that fits your needs.

Here's what Northwest Essay clients have to say about us:

"I loved how your editing directed me without telling me what to do. It really taught me to hone in on the critical points. I was allowed room to express myself, without being judged (by you). I think the process of writing the personal stories helps flush them out of my system, so I can focus on what those stories mean. Then, I can relay that value in other ways in the essay. I hope it works during the admissions process!"


JD applicants: You have three weeks

Nov. 4th, 2014 | posted by: Danielle

If you would like to avoid the dreaded Wait List, you’ll need your law school application to be complete by around Thanksgiving.

Really? You might ask. Why’s that? Here’s why: Rolling admissions favors those who apply early. The longer you wait in the cycle, the more likely it is spots have been filled in the incoming class. When you apply, your application is dropped into a queue—and you don’t want to be at the back of the line.

Think of it this way: Law Schools have an idea of what they want their incoming class to look like. So, pause to think of yourself not as an individual, but as a member of a specific demographic. There will be other applicants with similar backgrounds and stats as yours; if they apply first, they get that spot, and you don’t.

I have seen very good applicants with very good numbers find themselves on Wait Lists shortly after applying in December and January —because adcomms like them but only have a few spots left to fill, and the applicant’s demographic is probably over-represented in the acceptances.

You have the power to control this outcome: ensure your letter-writers know they need to submit those in the next few weeks, so you will have time to verify that the letters have been properly received by LSAC. Then, make sure you have given yourself enough time to complete at least four good drafts of all of your application essays. Adcomms read hundreds of essays, and can tell if you’ve put time and effort into yours.

Three weeks! It will go by fast. As always, we’re here to help.
