Dear students and families,

After many years of working one-on-one with students on their application essays, I have decided to expand my work and pursue a master's in counseling to become a school counselor. Through my work with students, it has become clear that my passion lies not only in the essay portion of the application process, but also in the entire journey a student takes to find their perfect-fit college and career.

As I work toward obtaining my degree, I will not be taking on new clients for individual consulting. However, several years ago I wrote a manual, The $100,000 Essay, as a tool for any family to receive the guidance I offer during one-on-one sessions. If you're looking for help at any part of the writing process—from brainstorming to organizing to editing—this manual might be a good place to start.

Best wishes as you take this big step toward higher education.

Write on,

Nick
