Wordvice College Admissions Editing: The “Write” Tips

The college admissions process has become more competitive than ever.

More students are applying to college than ever before, but the number of four-year degree institutions has remained relatively constant. According to the US National Center for Education Statistics, over 40% of young adults aged 18 to 24 years applied in 2014, compared to only 25% in 1967. This means that schools are becoming more selective about the students they accept. In fact, 65% of all first-time freshmen were accepted in 2014, and among international applicants, only 34% of were accepted. Thus, it is no surprise that a Higher Education Research Institute report shows that the number students who applied to seven or more schools has doubled within the past 10 years.

What does that mean for parents and students like you?

Creating a top-notch profile on paper is essential for college admissions success. Grades and standardized test scores are not enough. The National Association for College Admission Counseling reported that the most important factors for deciding whether to accept candidates include the “essay, a student’s demonstrated interest, counselor and teacher recommendations, extracurricular activities, and class rank.”Grades and standardized test scores are no longer enough to get into a great school—creating a top-notch profile on paper is essential for college admissions success. The National Association for College Admission Counseling reported that the most important factors for deciding whether to accept candidates include the “essay, a student’s demonstrated interest, counselor and teacher recommendations, extracurricular activities, and class rank.”

The Common Application Essay and the supplemental essays required by many top schools focus on eliciting a student’s character. Admissions officers want to know who the student is, whether the student would thrive in their school’s environment, and what the student has to offer the school in terms of diversity and excellence. You can demonstrate all of these characteristics in a well-crafted admissions essay.

Why should you consider professional editing services for your admissions essays?

Our editors are here to help you demonstrate who you are. When admissions officers are faced with two candidates who have similar grade profiles, a student’s personal statement and recommendation letters can tip the balance in favor of one student over another.

A poorly drafted essay will fail to show the best side of you. When admissions officers find grammar mistakes, they will think that you did not bother to properly proofread your essay. When your essay is not properly organized, they will worry that you are unable to form strong logical progressions necessary to handle college-level course work. And when your essay only rehashes parts included elsewhere in your application, admissions officers will wonder whether you lack the mental capacity to be more creative and do more than the bare minimum.

So how does proper proofreading and editing help you improve your chances of acceptance?

A well-written admissions essay will convince the admissions officers that you would be an invaluable asset for the school. With a clearly organized personal statement, you can show how well you can articulate your thoughts and aspirations and develop strong arguments. Most importantly, a well-crafted essay means you can successfully demonstrate who you are, how much you have researched the school, and how strongly you desire to develop intellectually in your future home!

So, what are you waiting for? Let us give you the write tip to convince admissions officers that they should pick you!

Our experienced admissions essay proofreaders and editors will comb through your drafts to clarify your writing (including grammar, language use, and sentence structure) and make sure you have provided enough details to tell a poignant story that distinguishes you from other candidates.

For international students who struggle with language barriers, our native-English speakers can help you use more natural phrases that exemplify English language fluency.
