Admissions Essay Editing Services

With increasing numbers of students applying to colleges and universities worldwide each year, getting admitted into the school of your choice isn’t as easy as it used to be. According to one estimate, as many as 20 million people per year in the United States alone apply to one or more of the 4,300 higher education institutions. Therefore, evidence of academic performance (including SAT/ACT scores, transcripts, GPA, etc.), along with extracurriculars, volunteer work, and personal projects, is as important as ever in your application. But another critical factor in getting admitted to a top school is the college or graduate admissions essay.

Admissions essays help convince college admissions officers and graduate school faculty that you are a good fit for their institution. Personal essays give readers a window into your academic interests, achievements, goals, and plans…but more importantly, they offer an opportunity to showcase your intelligence and communication skills. In college admissions essays (such as the Common Application Essay or the University of California’s Personal Insight Questions), students are asked to demonstrate their special accomplishments, skills, characteristics, difficulties, and worldviews--this can be done by writing a personal narrative, a reflection of a time in which you overcame a difficulty, and/or your objectives as a student. Graduate essays such as the Statement of Purpose and the Personal Statement provide graduate faculty members with vital information about your educational background, academic achievements, scholarly and professional goals, and any lessons you have learned throughout your academic journey. Furthermore, Letters of Recommendation from professors and colleagues are often requested to attest to your work ethic and strengths in an academic or professional environment.

Whatever admissions documents you are submitting to colleges, universities, or employers, Wordvice has editing services that will enhance your writing and make your story more compelling to your target readers. All of our admissions editors are native English speakers with many years’ experience advising prospective students like you, and many have attended top schools in the US, UK, Canada, and Australia.

Client Reviews

Angelica is a great editor, she not only corrects your mistakes but tells you why it is wrong so you do not do the same mistakes twice. I highly recommend using their services if you are trying to get a paper that is not only perfect with no errors, but also is written more naturally in a way that university faculty will respect. I will use Wordvice for future essays.

Simply put: Amazing! The edits changed my paper in a manner that was appealing to the admissions officer and I probably would not have been able to create a compelling essay independently. The editor revised the essay in detail (including minor punctuation errors). Any unnatural expressions and wordiness were fixed and tonal consistency was achieved. It is great that the context of my essay was understood and the editor had provided revisions that could retain my authorial intent. Thank you for the overall feedback on my personal statement; I loved the vocabulary and sentence suggestions. The user interface is easy to navigate and the team at Wordvice was available 24/7 throughout the process. Overall, it seemed like the editor understood what I wanted to discuss and the focal points in my essay.

    Thank you for reviewing my resume. Your review was so nice because you corrected my sentences, which I didn't know how to write correctly. Especially, it was the first time for me to hear "ABD". Thank you so much.
