Essays + Applications

Streamline and simplify the overwhelming college essays and applications process.

Essays + Applications Guidance Defined

Simply put, we guide you through the college applications process, which can be super helpful when the pathway gets a bit murky or stressful. Think of us as your guidance counselor for hire, except that we focus exclusively on College, and we work summer, nights and weekends.

Whether you need help with just one essay, or someone to guide you through the college applications process from start to finish, you’ll find the package that fits here. Choose from three different College Applications Guidance options, depending on your needs. We won’t write those essays for you, but we know what colleges look for, triggers to avoid and how to tell your best story in a way that really pops.

Fast-track your college applications progress this summer with help from OnCampus College Planning. Imagine how smart you’ll feel in September when you can breathe easy and enjoy smooth, stress-free sailing for senior year.

Essays + Applications Benefits & Results

Our students and families tell us that having someone to guide them through the college applications process helps make the process stress-free, and even enjoyable! Many students benefit from having someone coach them on telling their best story for college applications. Our clients tell us that our help with essay development streamlined the process for them and made it less stressful.

For students and families who want a partner at every step of the college application process, our Complete College App Guidance Package fits the bill. We serve as your project manager, keeping tracking of the checklist and timelines, and helping you to avoid costly missteps.

One of the most common benefits or results that we hear is, “It was great to assign the job of ‘taskmaster’ to someone who doesn’t share our last name.” Tensions can mount during the college applications process, and having an outside (IE, non-parent) voice is often a huge stress reliever.
