The Personal Statement:
It's what we know.
$20: Quick feedback to find out if you’re on the right track.
$40: Quick feedback, a chance for you to make some edits, then another round of more in-depth review.
$75: At least three rounds of feedback, covering your first to final draft, plus big-idea brainstorming and a grammar-and-mechanics check.
$99: Review of two pieces of admissions writing (like a personal and diversity statement) for a comprehensive look at the tone and content of your application—up to six draft revisions total.
$150: On a deadline? We’ll go through two rounds of feedback with you within 48 hours (though you have to promise to turn around your second draft quickly!).
Other: Contact us directly for copyediting quotes.
Our quotes are for essays of 1200 words or less in length; essays beyond 1200 words may require an extra charge.
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:
"Thanks so much for the amazing comments on the personal statement! I really appreciate it. In particular, I really found your questions helpful. They help prod along my thinking so well!"
"I was very pleased with the editing service and will recommend it to my friends. I wish I had decided to work with Northwest earlier on in the application process because having someone check my work was a big relief and saved me stress."
