College Essay Editing & Consulting

Youssef - University of Southern California California

I’ve had two of my essays edited by Dyllen, and I can confidently say that they are some of the best essays I wrote for my college application process. Not only was Dyllen’s essay editing significantly more affordable than some of the other college consulting services I used, but it was also much more detailed and thorough. Through providing lots of thought-provoking questions about the values and themes I wanted to portray in my essays, Dyllen really helped me make my essays as specific to who I am as possible and, in doing so, only helped me stand out more as a unique applicant. I highly recommend her essay editing service!

Here's why I am exceptionally qualified:

I applied to college in 2018, so I am very familiar with the entire process. Not only did I do extensive research on college application and essay writing strategies back then, but I have continued to do so ever since. I’ve learned an incredible amount through working directly with students and editing hundreds (soon to be thousands) of college essays. I know all the common overused phrases, the exact structures of a perfect college essay, and what makes a student "stand out". I find the college essay process fascinating, even invigorating, and I truly believe in helping other students strengthen their essays and build confidence.

Activities & Awards Description Review

Emilie - University of Pennsylvania California

I was hesitant to do essay editing services at first since I didn’t know if it would be helpful, but Dyllen’s editing really helped me enhance my essays by strengthening the themes and adding clarity to details. Also, the short paragraph of overall feedback is really helpful as it gives me an insight on how my essays are to readers besides the people I know. With the useful advice from Dyllen’s YouTube videos, she enabled me to gain admission to my dream schools. Thank you, Dyllen! And I strongly recommend her editing service to anyone who requires suggestions for their college essays.

Dyllen is simply amazing! Not only did she help me brainstorm extremely creative ideas for both my common app and writing supplements but she also greatly improved my writing style. For anyone looking to get their essays edited, Dyllen is the person to go to!

Melany - Stanford University Washington

One of the most important decisions I made during my college application process was getting Dyllen to help me brainstorm essay ideas and later on edit two rounds of my Common App essay. Her feedback helped me understand where my writing was strong and where I needed to go back to the drawing board so that I could craft the strongest application possible. I cannot thank her enough and recommend her to any and everyone! She has helped me achieve my goal of attending Stanford, and I know she can do the same for you!

Samantha - University of Michigan Illinois

Dyllen has edited many of my essays, and I can confidently say I would recommend her to any of my friends or classmates. Her edits are very comprehensive and she has ensured that all my essays sound precise, personal, and interesting to read. I definitely recommend scheduling a Zoom call with her to explain your ideas for your essays, she has been very helpful in helping me find ways to elevate my essay topics and make them incredibly specific. Her help has reduced my stress greatly in this process and I truly believe her services are worth the money.
