Why Choose College Essay Editor?


Everyone has a passion. Everyone has a unique story. We help you express yours in writing and get accepted to America’s best colleges. Here, every single essay is personally reviewed – from start to finish –  by a Stanford graduate. Not by a part-time editor. Not by a hired tutor.


Our essay editors have been accepted to many of the nation’s most selective colleges, and each graduated from Stanford University. And we’ve helped other applicants achieve the same results. Recent client acceptances include Stanford, Columbia, Berkeley, Harvard, Cornell, Caltech, and the University of Chicago.


We have helped edit thousands of college application essays and graduate school personal statements from the U.S. and abroad. We know what works, what doesn’t, what stands out, and what gets lost in the pile. And we help students recognize – and eliminate – cliches and overused expressions in order to craft a truly compelling and memorable essay.


Our editors were granted temporary access to their own admission records. Complete with admissions officers’ comments, notes, and ratings, these records revealed what admissions committees thought about our applications, and provided us with unparalleled insight into the reality of college admissions.

What We Do

At College Essay Editor, we specialize in editing college application essays and personal statements. In today’s college admissions landscape, as the emphasis on standardized testing declines, essays have become an increasingly important – if not the most important – factor in both the college and graduate school application process. 

To get into the best colleges in the U.S., top grades and test scores are no longer good enough. Your essay, and the story it tells, is how you can differentiate yourself from the tens of thousands of other applicants. 

Your essays and personal statements will determine not just where you get in, but also how much scholarship money you receive, which majors you are accepted into, whether or not you are accepted to an Honors college, and much more. 

Regardless of how strong your grades, test scores, and resume are, an outstanding college application essay or personal statement can help you meet – and exceed – your admission goals, whether that means being accepted to a prestigious and highly-selective Ivy League university, finding a college that fits you best, or getting into the Honors program at an in-state school.
