More Answers to More Educational Consultant Questions

For educational consultants who want to figure out how best to integrate College Essay Organizer into their practice, we are posting more commonly asked questions and answers. If you happen to have a question that you do not see, please don’t hesitate to email us at [email protected] and we would be happy to help you.

 

7. I found that I did not use the RoadMap as much as I could have. Do you have any suggestions to help me make better use of it?

The RoadMap provides a suggested plan for organizing your essay questions and shows the overlapping themes among your essays. But one of its best features is that it provides as many topic options as possible for each essay that the student needs to write. Take advantage of this flexibility! It is ultimately up to the independent consultant and the student to relate the student's life to the broad themes addressed by the essay questions. But choose your topics carefully and specifically. It will make the writing process quicker and simpler, and increase the quality of the essays.

We are always improving the RoadMap's functionality and ease of use. This season, we have greatly simplified the layout of the RoadMap, and have added note-taking and essay uploading features to make College Essay Organizer your one-stop source for guiding students through the essay writing process.

If you would like to go over these upgrades individually, or find out how to optimize your clients' experience using College Essay Organizer, please let us know and we'll arrange a private demo with Dan Stern, our president. We're confident you'll find that the new and improved College Essay Organizer will guide students more clearly and successfully.

 

8. Will you be adding any additional tutorials for independent consultants?

We will be including additional resources to help new users this coming season, including live webinars that explain how to best use College Essay Organizer and that cover various essay topics. We will also include materials you can share with clients that allow them to optimize their College Essay Organizer experience. Though these additions aren't required to use College Essay Organizer or understand its benefits, they can help improve the experience for all.

 

9. Is it possible to use only the QuickFinder for my clients?

We do not currently offer QuickFinder-only accounts through the Master Account platform.

 

10. Why not?

We have developed the RoadMap around the QuickFinder format, allowing the RoadMap to function as a flexible, modifiable QuickFinder. Now that we've added an essay-sharing platform to make communication between you and your students even easier, College Essay Organizer has become a one-stop shop for the college essay writing process. We see the RoadMap as the core of that experience. The overwhelmingly positive feedback regarding the RoadMap, as well as the upgrades that make the RoadMap even easier to interpret now, makes clear that this is the best approach for our users.

Using CEO to Find Scholarships And Departments For College

One of the hidden benefits (which we've tried here on CEO blog to keep not-so-hidden) is that the Essay QuickFinder and Essay RoadMap tools will help you find department-specific and scholarship essays you didn't even know existed.

If we take a look at this simple example, the Essay RoadMap finds 9 requirements that can be answered with just 3 pieces of writing. But if you read on, you'll see that even this small selection of colleges brings with it 49 departmental and scholarship essay prompts. 49! And almost none of these questions appear on the Common App.

Searching For Free Money With CEO

Seeing these prompts will doubtlessly set you off towards programs and, in many cases, opportunities for free money that you might have overlooked.
