Here’s how it works: 

  • You explain to me where you’re planning to apply (and we can discuss options).

  • We have an initial extensive conversation about your background, your goals, and your quest so I can truly understand your trajectory, your priorities, and what moves you.  I also want to get a good sense of how you “sound.”

  • We discuss how you can structure your essay(s).

  • You write a draft.

  • You send it to me or share it with me.  I use Google Drive—if you are unfamiliar with Drive, I can explain it to you (it’s easy…).

  • We ping-pong back and forth with modifications and comments.

  • We find times (depending on the case and type of application) to connect to work together.

  • When we’ve finally zapped all the comments and done a final read-through, you submit your application.
