For UC Personal Insight Questions, I 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! Services range from $120 to $675 (or, for $1,075, get the VIP treatment!).

For Common App and Supplemental Essays, I recommend Prompt. Prompt will assign one of their coaches to work with you one-on-one to 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 ($899-$1,749) within two weeks, starting from scratch – an ideal choice if you are pressed for time!

Not sure yet? Sign up for a Prompt account to gain access to these awesome free tools:

  • Essay Lists: Prompt will automatically create a list of every essay you need to write based on your school list (including optional essays you may want to write for scholarships and programs that aren’t part of a school’s main application).
  • Essay Development Tools: Prompt offers modules with step-by-step guidance on how to write the most common types of essays (e.g. personal statement, why major, etc.).

Please note, purchases made from Prompt will generate a commission that helps support the free content on this website!
