Andrea Friedlander College application essay consulting
There are over 30,000 high schools in the country, each with students boasting good grades, good test scores, and a myriad of activities. With very few colleges offering interviews, the application essays are the BEST -- and sometimes ONLY -- opportunity for students to distinguish themselves as unique and interesting candidates, to convince the college admissions officers that they would be an asset to the school, and to bring to life the person and personality behind their application.
But writing a stand-out essay is easier said than done. The essays are typically the most stressful part of the application process. And for good reason: the essays are blank slates with endless possibilities! Plus, they are generally the only part of the application that students can control during the application process, since the other key elements -- grades, test scores and activities -- are established facts to be recited. So, it's only natural for students to feel a bit overwhelmed, especially if they are applying to several schools and have numerous different essays to write.

Andrea Friedlander, J.D.
"What separates Andrea from others was her ability to help sharpen my son's writing, while ensuring that it was his voice coming through. She was really able to understand him as a person, and made sure the essays stayed true to him. My son was very happy with his final application, and we believe that Andrea played a key role in helping him get into his first choice school.”
"Andrea helped my son write a really excellent essay that almost certainly helped him gain early admission to the school he is planning to attend. Beyond that, she helped him find his voice. He started out saying that he didn't have anything to write about. Andrea showed (not told) him that, by putting in the thought, hard work, and multiple revisions needed to describe his experiences specific and vividly, he could tell a compelling story that shows who he is. Big words and lofty sentiments not required! The value of the work he did with her goes way beyond getting into college. Learning to write this way is a key to success in life."
