By Ryan Hickey + updated on August 9th, 2011

Today, I’d like to use this space to point out some things that are happening over at With the 2011-2012 application season about to shift into high gear, we’re working very hard and are excited to share some updates with you.

First off, we’re pleased to announce that you can learn more about some of the top editors at EssayEdge on a brand new page:

I strongly encourage you to take a look at this new section of our website when you have a chance. You might learn something interesting, like…

Did you know that EssayEdge has editors who have MBAs, Ph.D.s, and law degrees? Did you know that one EssayEdge editor has earned degrees from Brown University, Columbia University, AND Princeton University? Did you know that one EssayEdge editor worked in the Columbia University admissions office and is a decorated military veteran who presided over an historic event with the U.S. and French presidents? Did you know that some EssayEdge editors have been editing admissions essays with us for over a decade? Did you know that one EssayEdge editor graduated from one of the most selective and unique schools in the world, a school that admits only 10-15 students annually? Did you know that some of our editors have edited published books (one of those editors plays blues guitar and one loves to eat fried pickles)?

Check out our brand-new editor profiles and see what else you can learn about some of the top editors at EssayEdge. No matter where you’re applying, we have an experienced admissions and writing professional ready to help you make the most of your application essay or personal statement.
