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.

We not only carefully proofread your essay for grammar, spelling, and punctuation, but also revise for clarity, natural terms and expressions, and tone to improve your paper’s impact. Our editors provide substantive comments about language, development, and essay content to help you improve your writing in future work.

Your admissions essay, CV, or cover letter should portray your achievements, skills, and personal character in a positive light to college and university officials and potential employers. Wordvice Admissions Editing clarifies your writing, highlights your strengths, and helps you show your prospective schools and employers that you will be a valuable asset to their school or company.

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.

  • Cierra Kelley Feb-19-2021

    I needed my graduate admission essay to reflect my goals and experience in a clear, professional manner. I was so impressed with the finished product! I felt that my personal voice was still in the paper even after the editing. I will be using Wordvice again!

  • Jackie Liao Feb-16-2021

    The reviewer was very helpful to give me reviews but I didn’t know why he deleted my courses&grades and didn’t give reasons.

  • Julianne Saunders Feb-06-2021

    This was a really great service, I needed feedback on two essays for my transfer application and my editor gave me good edits to improve the essays. I chose the five day deal and there were no issues with timing, in fact I got my essays a little early which was a nice surprise.

  • Chen Fan Feb-07-2021

    reply fast and careful proofreading

  • Marcel Ebini Feb-05-2021

    I think you are doing a good job.l do appreciate the way you make your comments. But lf you can do the corrections directly and make comments separately will be much better.we have to learn from our mistakes and see how we cam improve our writing.

  • Eyra Burnett Feb-03-2021

    I am happy with your service. It improved the flow of my essay to sound more natural and proper writing. I will definitely use your service again if needed. The editor : Amy did a great job with the editing. Thank you.

  • Riaz Ogunleye Jan-26-2021

    Brilliant editing. Maybe slightly more insight to improve the smoothness and quality of my essay but I cant really expect more
