What Students Are Saying

"I felt it was really important that I devote my time and energy to actually writing my essays as opposed to just trying to find and organize all the different questions and figure out which essays overlapped. The huge number of essays seemed overwhelming, but this site whittled down the topics and gave me a clear plan. Planning in advance has always been so important to me. Without this amazing site, the time needed to complete the application process would have at least tripled. "
— Robert Hess Attended Stuyvesant High School; Accepted to Yale University
Chess Grandmaster, Ranked #1 in the US (21 and under)
"It took me two hours to register an account for my first college application online, search through the dozen or so pages, and finally find the essays I had to write. Then someone suggested I use the Common App to make things easier since so many schools accept it, but it turns out most colleges require supplemental essays in addition to the Common App essays. I was lost. The Essay RoadMap® instantly got me on the right track."
— Josh Accepted to Stanford University
"I had absolutely no idea how hard it would be to apply to college. My older brother went through this years earlier, but I figured it wouldn't be that tough for me. Wrong! The essays were the toughest part of the process, and I didn't have any clue how to start them. This site gave me all of my essay questions, told me how to reuse them in creative ways, and helped organize me from start to finish. I would still be staring at a blank screen if it weren't for this site."
— Rachel Accepted to Tufts University
"This site helped me manage all my college essays from beginning to end. I didn't have to waste a single second searching the colleges' own applications for the hidden essay questions, and I never had to worry if I was overlooking some essay for one of the special programs I was applying to. What would have taken hours took less than two minutes with the free Essay QuickFinder."
— Jennifer Accepted to Syracuse University
