Do focus on an aspect of yourself that will show your best side. You might have overcome some adversity, worked through a difficult project, or profited from a specific incident. A narrow focus is more interesting than broad-based generalizations.
"Sarah is awesome! I am so glad I made the decision to have my essay edited with this service. Money well spent! She made my essay flawless and gave me more confidence with my essay. Thank you so much!" - Annabelle, Pre-PA
And this is why I am charging for this service. We love helping people find the stories that define their lives, and we love helping individuals who have the passion to achieve their dreams. It's hard to describe the feeling I get when an applicant writes me back to tell me they were accepted into PA school.
Most people who are excellent in the sciences are not particularly interested in writing (and vice-versa). If it were a passion, they'd be the editors, and I'd be applying to PA school. But just as I've learned the mechanics of a robotic knee replacement for an article, science-minded folks can learn to tell a story on paper. It's a matter of someone taking the time to explain how and walk them through the process step-by-step.

After you have written the first, second, or third draft, there are another set of evaluative questions that you can work through to help you revise your essay.
On all submissions, we perform both, revision and editing. How to submit your essay for the FREE service Follow the rules above and get to work below in the comments section. I look forward to reading all your essay submissions.
Don't write on general, impersonal topics-like the nuclear arms race or the importance of good management in business. The college wants to know about you.
Do tell the truth about yourself. The admission committee is anonymous to you you are completely unknown to it. Even if you run into a committee member in the future, he will have no way of connecting your essay (out of the thousands he has read) to you.
Throughout high school I excelled but when it came time for college applications, I wasn’t sure where I wanted to go. I made the tough decision to take a gap year and work to help pay bills at home. I signed up for classes at the local community college the following year while still working full time.
If you have additional, relevant information about yourself that does not easily fit into the essay, or into any other section of the university's application, you may want to include a condensed resume or curriculum vitae with your application package. This is especially applicable to those who have worked professionally since having graduated from school. Relevant items here might include work experience, publications, and presentations, as well as language and computer skills.
We will continue to edit your essay with you until we (you and the editor) believe your essay is polished enough to send to a PA school and give you a much better opportunity to get an interview. (Read the reviews by many of our previous clients.)
