Essay Consultations

Whether you're applying to aspirant schools, where you're likely to face a competitive admission process, or for a full-tuition scholarship, getting your college essay just right can help to put you over the top.

Our team of Independent Educational Consultants happily offers the opportunity to provide one final review prior to submission or guidance throughout the writing process, from brainstorming to completion.

Each essay consultation kicks off with an initial consultation to share our process. From there, each draft receives written comments and will be followed by a 25-minute consultation to ensure successful implementation.

One-Time Review - $399
Unlimited Review - $999


Supplementing our learning modules and interactive tools, Portico's team of Independent Educational Consultants offer a variety of service packages from individual consultations to group workshops.

If you feel stuck in the planning process, want to discuss whether or not to submit test scores to specific institutions, or are having difficulties discerning the differences amongst financial packages, we would be happy to provide our support with the consultation or workshop that best suits your needs.
