Our FAQs can be helpful but if we didn't answer your quesiton below, ask us one!


  1. Will my editor make actual changes to my essay?
    It depends on the level of service you purchase. For a breakdown on our services, please visit our services page.  
  2. Can you write an admissions essay or personal statement for me?
    No. We are not an essay mill. Not only will that approach not serve you in the admissions context; it’s simply no fun for a legitimate editor or admissions consultant. We do offer some content writing services (for non-academic contexts), though. Contact support@ with all inquiries.
  3. Is it unethical to use an admissions consultant or editor?
    Our process is collaborative. We believe the best ideas and answers come from YOU – and have designed an editing service and approach that allows us to help you harvest that content. Most writers work with editors, most businesspeople work with consultants; your job is to choose a consultant who helps you find your best answers.
  4. Can I purchase words in advance and submit over a period of time? Can I purchase my service now and send you essays as I finish them?
    No, words cannot be purchased for later use (or divided among multiple clients). We require all essays be submitted to us upfront.  
  5. I’m submitting some essays with duplicate content. Am I charged for repeated sections of material?
    This is a common inquiry. Before you purchase, we are happy to advise you on how to economize your content. If you just need a few supplementary paragraphs, you might simply highlight the material that needs to be edited. However, if you’re looking for different versions of the same essay (e.g. a 1000-word version and a 500-word version), you’ll need to aggregate those word totals. (Nota bene: we will not streamline 1000-word essays down to 500 words as an afterthought. All word limitations must be mentioned when you submit your original order.)
  6. How is word count calculated? Do I count the prompt? Do I count the number of words I have in my document, or the word limitation provided by the academic or professional institution?
    Count the number of words in your essay(s), excluding the prompt. Please note that your word count should be near the stipulated word limitations. We’ll help you generate new content, but a reasonable amount ☺
  7. How long is the editor interaction?
    Editor interaction varies depending on the service level you purchase. For more information on our services, please click here.  
  8. Can you get my document to me quickly?
    Yes, we offer 24-hr rush services and can sometimes provide an even faster turnaround. Learn more about our rush services HERE or email us at admin @ with your deadline constraints.
  9. How do I know if you’re right for me?
    Read some of our blog posts or reach out to us with any of your questions we're here to help. We aim to offer as much transparency as possible in order to reveal what we can do for you.
  10. What if I’m not satisfied with the result?
    We strive for 100% customer satisfaction with all of our work.
