Proven Editing Process
We strive to give you the most comprehensive editing experience offered on the Internet.
The effort you put into your application can change your life.
We know -- it's happened to us.
But one of the most consistently under-valued, yet critical, aspects of a competitive application is a compelling essay.
Every student deserves to put their best foot forward when it comes to admissions. This guiding principle is at the heart of the Veritas Essays editing process, which we've briefly outlined below.
Reading from the mindset of an admissions reader
Your editor will first give your essay a full read-through from top-to-bottom.
This is to get an immediate impression of your essay's content, tone, and potential impact on the reader.
Our editors are trained to identify the key components of a successful admissions essay, and have been selected for our team specifically because of their outstanding writing, editing, and proofreading abilities.
Comprehensive, granular editing and commenting on your writing
Next, your editor will read through your essay several more times, leaving in-line edits, insertions, deletions, suggestions for re-arranging or re-phrasing your content, and in-line comments after each read-through.
Comments will be used to explain edits, identify key passages to workshop, highlight ways to re-structure your essay, provide helpful tips and examples to improve your writing, and leave probing questions to get you primed for your next draft.
High-level feedback, next steps, and key areas for improvement
After reviewing all of their in-line edits and comments, re-reading your essay (as well as their comments) again from top-to-bottom, and re-adjusting their edits as needed, your editor will leave Overall Notes for you at the bottom of your document.
These Notes will highlight what you should focus on most in your next draft, key themes identified by your editor, and (where applicable) an evaluation of your draft on our proprietary admissions essay rubric.
We constantly review and audit our team's performance to ensure that our Ivy League editors are held to the highest quality standards.
Check out what you'll receive below.
- Full review, revision, and critique of your submitted writing. This may include, but is not limited to, the following:
- Proofreading and grammar
- Improvements to the structure, narrative, and organization of your writing
- Content edits and suggestions
- Ways to reframe your essay to better address the prompt
- Notes on how to add depth/emotion to your story
- Feedback on the overall strength and direction of your essay
- Your writing will also be graded using a proprietary evaluation rubric where relevant (Common App Personal Statements, college/graduate school admissions essays, and resumes).
- Your essay will be returned within the specified timeframe (48/24/12 hours), or a refund will be issued.
- Please note that we may restructure certain elements of your writing to improve the overall coherence of your narrative.
What's not included?
