Packages and Pricing

Complete Common or Coalition Application Essay $1450

We start from scratch with a brainstorming session. This can be in person (if the student is in the Chicago area) or via an online session. The student then works on an initial draft. We then meet online to edit. This meeting will focus more on overall structure and content. After the structure of the essay is in place, we will meet to fine tune word choice, sentence structure, and overall flow of the essay.

Supplemental essays can be added at the package rate of $225/hour online, $195/hour offline.

University of California System $1550

The University of California System has its own separate application with four, 350-word essays. They call them insight questions. This package is similar to the Common Application essay package but focuses on presenting a complete picture of the student through four shorter essays.

The California and Common or Coalition Application packages can be combined for $2500.
