Why are you doing this?

This normally is a premium service that I charge $100+ for. But this year I'm offering it for free to a limited number of students as a pro-bono service.

There's no catch. It's 100% free, no strings attached.

Your essays will remain 100% private and confidential.

I will not share your essays with anyone else, and I will not use them for any other purpose.

I'm doing this because I want to make college admissions help more accessible to students who need it.

All I ask is that when you are accepted to colleges, you consider showcasing your essays on my website to help future students. 😃

This is not required, but is a special opportunity for you to help future students and get recognition for your work.
