Essay Review and College Admissions Consulting Services

Need constructive feedback or writing support for your UC Personal Insight Questions? I highly recommend Angie Bates! I have been working with Angie since 2015 and she is very familiar with all of my techniques and methods. She is an excellent content organizer and editor, has an eye for details, and great at condensing/trimming content without losing pertinent information. For students who are self-directed and just need someone to support them through the writing process, Angie is the perfect choice!

Need constructive feedback or writing support for your Common App and Supplemental Essays? I recommend Prompt where you will work one-on-one with a writing coach who can support you through some or all of your college essays (depending on the service you choose). There is no cap for hours, calls, or reviews, and Prompt’s process is fast! If you can keep up with the assigned work and deadlines, you can complete your Common App and Supplemental Essays for your Top 3 Schools within two weeks, starting from scratch – an ideal choice if you are pressed for time!

Looking for full-service consulting for Common Application, Coalition for College, ApplyTexas, or other college applications? I highly recommend Capstone! I have known one of the co-founders (Shelley Enger) since 2012 and I turn to her for ALL of my STEM and non-UC college questions because I trust and respect her expertise. Capstone counselors are experienced in assisting students with college list development, essay writing, application strategies, and interview prep for a wide variety of academic interests, as well as advising students in specialized areas that include business, STEM, health care, social sciences, athletic recruitment, high school counseling, and medical school/health science graduate program admissions.

Considering college athletics? I recommend Slater Admissions Advising. Joe Slater has over a decade of experience on every side of the college admissions and recruiting process. He spent 8 years as a D1 baseball coach and athletics administrator at University of San Francisco, University of the Pacific, and the University of California, Berkeley. He served as an operations manager, fundraiser, and admissions liaison for some of the most successful collegiate athletics programs in the country, and uses that knowledge to help guide families through both the academic and athletic sides of the college admissions process. 

Need help with your transfer application to the UCs, CSUs, and/or other colleges? I highly recommend Dan Nannini! He was the the transfer center coordinator at Santa Monica College, the #1 transfer college to the UCs, for 17 years. Enough said!
