Your essay can make or break your application

A well-written application essay is essential to reaching the next step in your academic career. It needs to present you in the best light possible, describe how your experiences have shaped who you are today, and communicate your ability to achieve your goals in the future.

Woman writing an application essay

When admissions officers read your application essay, they are attempting to assess who you are and why you deserve to be accepted. Does it flow from subject to subject? Does it present you and your capabilities well? Does it frame what has happened during your lifetime effectively? Does it establish your willingness and capacity to grow?

ServiceScape can take your application essay from good to exceptional, helping you present yourself just as you want admissions officers to see you.
