Essay Editors Who Know What It Takes


At College Essay Editor, every essay you submit will personally be reviewed by one of our two Stanford-educated editors. Unlike many larger essay editing companies, which often hire less experienced tutors to help when they get flooded with essays during the busy application season, we do not subcontract our essays out to part-time editors, students, or freelancers. Each and every essay is edited by one of us. 

And since a Stanford editor personally handles each essay, we only take on a limited number of essays at College Essay Editor, allowing our editors to devote more time to your essay.


At College Essay Editor, our editors are fluent in the essay editing process and up to date with college admissions trends. We’ve edited thousands of essays, ranging from Common Application personal statements, supplemental essays, and graduate school personal statements to Why This College essays, Bachelor of Fine Arts essays and Air Force nomination essays. We’ve helped applicants take full advantage of the Additional Information section to discuss a learning disability, polish their creative writing portfolios, and submit outstanding essays for an Honors College.


We have also taken advantage of a law that temporarily provided a small group of students from highly-selective universities with the ability to view their admissions records, thus granting us a rare insider’s perspective on our admission evaluations and criteria – as well as a glimpse at how our own college application essays were reviewed – before the university started deleting these records. 

Thus, we’ve seen how scrutinized your essays will be, and use this perspective to give our clients the most honest glimpse available into the college admissions process.


Regardless of which editor works on your essay, our team consults with each other to ensure that the strongest case for admission is made. Thus, your applications are seen by more than one set of eyes, helping find additional areas needing improvement and exposing any remaining weaknesses.


Many industry insiders and colleges champion a “just be yourself” approach to college admissions. At College Essay Editor, however, we are committed to providing you with the most honest feedback possible, and don’t tell you only what you want to hear. Be yourself, but strategically.
