Nice to meet you!

We hope you’re having a fantastic experience at the NACAC conference, whether in steamy Houston or virtually.

We’re here (well, Barak is here) because we’re passionate about guiding teens through their college essay adventures, helping professionals save time and delete stress as they work with kids, bringing new resources to schools and nonprofits, and giving our friends in admissions offices essays they love to read.

We’ve spent over a decade helping students write better college essays, and almost that long creating tools and programs that kids love and that make our lives easier.

NACAC special through Sunday

IECs and school counselors: Delete college stress for you and 5 students with our Get Started package. Through Sunday, get 5 additional student subscriptions.

Schools, non-profits, and partner organizations: We can create a plan that works for you and your organization. Let’s talk!

Feedback forms

We use these forms when we give written feedback and require our students to give a form to anyone giving them feedback.

With these forms, everyone is on the same page, speaking the same language.

These are based on the Write Like a Pro phases and integrate tightly with EssayQuest. We’re in the process of updating the forms to match the EssayQuest brand.
