Point of View

The Personal Statement is a pivotal part of the college application essay. Here is where students convey their strengths, passions, and individual character absent from GPA, SAT, or ACT scores. The assigned very low word-count challenges students to address large questions in a short amount of time. I provide students with specific techniques to address prompts directly and concisely, ensuring there is power in every sentence, if not in every word. Point of View has a 100% success rate not only in student acceptance to the colleges of their choice, but also for Early Admission and Scholarships.

“Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”

―Mary Oliver, New and Selected Poems
