Step 4: Progress Checkins

With all our prep work done, you are ready to write! In the academy there are three draft revision stages and each stage includes two weeks where you will write the drafts of all your essays. Then, you'll submit them to me and I'll do a hybrid essay review and provide helpful suggestions, insights, and personalized feedback. Once you have a clear vision of what to do for improvement, you move on to the next stage of writing.

Step 5: Get Ready for the Essay Academy 

You've done it! All your hard work has paid off! After all the draft revision stages, we will do a final essay review and you'll get the "all clear" to submit. But this isn't just a normal essay review, we will run through your entire application to make sure the messaging is on point and telling YOUR story. 

And just like that, you can start Senior year confident you have written the best essay of your life!
