Don't Leave it to Chat GPT

College The Write Way helps high school students craft college application essays that often lead to acceptance by top universities. I also edit any high school or college essay or research paper. Did Chat GPT help you with your rough draft? Let me rewrite that for you before you turn it in. My flat rate for editing a rough draft or Chat GPT draft is $100 per page (up to 300 words per page).

I am a former newspaper reporter for a top 10 paper and a former associate magazine editor. I have extensive experience writing feature stories and columns, as well as editing and proofing. I was twice nominated for a Pulitzer prize. I have also been a public school teacher, as well as a home school teacher of five. I have been editing college application essays since 2014.

Formulating a Topic

Through discussions by email or text, I help each student explore personal stories, interests, and activities to identify an appropriate topic for their essay. We discuss the essay prompts, if applicable, select the topic and develop a plan to set the student on the path to a rough draft.


Finding the Hook, Developing the Body and Coming Full Circle

This stage involves taking the rough draft and developing a strong opening anecdote, ensuring body paragraphs support and develop the topic, and finding an ending that leaves a lasting impression. This stage usually requires at least two revisions to fully develop the narrative.


Cleaning and Polishing

Finally, the draft is cleaned and polished and the language refined. Spelling, grammar and punctuation is corrected. The essay is titled and edited for length, often creating two or three copies of different word counts to be used for different applications.
