College Essay Coach

“Ninety percent of the applications I read contain what I call McEssays – usually five-paragraph essays that consist primarily of abstractions and unsupported generalization. They are technically correct in that they are organized and have the correct sentence structure and spelling, but they are boring.” – Senior Assistant Dean, Office of Undergraduate Admission, University of Virginia

“I would think it foolish of a student not to have an essay proofed for spelling, grammar and syntax by someone competent to do so.” –Jeffrey Brenzel, Dean of undergraduate admissions, Yale University
