I am so touched. I am going to be very honest, I am tearful. Thank you! You were excellent and took so much time to get all the information needed in order to get this very important personal statement written. I am in awe of the turnaround time. I am impressed with the completed personal statement.
— Jacqueline (Master's in Psychology applicant)

Your personal statement can be the difference between a “YES, you’re in!” and a “No, thanks!”

Even if you have a 4.0 and perfect test scores, you’ll still have to compete against others with similar stats and it’s your personal statement that will help you stand out from the crowd. If you have a less than perfect GPA and test scores an amazing personal statement will help an admissions committee to overlook it!

The personal statement is really your time to shine and we want to help you write a great one! And we also help with a lot of other stuff too!

Yes! Danielle’s work is thorough, concise and smooth. I am impressed with her work and how she is able to maintain my voice throughout the editing process, some folks I have worked with in the past haven’t known how to do that.
