How to select a good essay editor?

The success of the university application profoundly rests on your essay, especially when it comes to the world’s best undergraduate or graduate programs. That is why it is so crucial to put an extra effort into essay editing and ace it. 

Never underestimate the power of editing.

Once the essay is finished, the most important job is yet to be done. Editing is an instrumental and integral part of application essay preparations that can only maximize the chance of your admission. Improvement of the original essay might be an overwhelming and never-ending story. Yet the importance of comprehensive editing should not be neglected. Getting external, professional, and honest feedback is crucial at this stage. The impeccable essay is not only grammar-errors-free but also has the perfect flow and clear structure. 

However, one should not struggle alone with the editing process. Even the greatest writers have their editors. The essay editing might involve a lot of people, including your family members, trusted friends, or any other people you can rely on. However, having all the hands-on deck might not be efficient in this case. Sometimes to have just an extra pair of hands of highly experienced experts can enhance your essay way better, rather than giving your essay to a friend for proofreading. Thus, it is highly advised to find an English essay editor who will take care of your admissions documents.

Hire a professional essay editor.

In order to make sure that you choose a high-quality essay editor service, it is better to hire a real essay editor with a sharp eye, instead of a simple automated spell checker. Do not hesitate to find a professional editor. It is okay to hire a seasoned expert who understands the admission process and can quickly and efficiently take you through this. The EssayEdge is an essay editor website that offers the best essay editor service that can support you on this admissions path. A team of competent editors can help to whip your essay into better shape. Our mission is to deliver prime quality services and mentorship, so the students could achieve their life goals.

It goes without saying, that all our editors underwent a competitive selection process and were equipped with the necessary training, so the needs of each client would be fulfilled.

EssayEdge offers you more than an essay editor service. Our services package goes beyond a standard revision, proofreading, or catching minor grammar and spelling errors. The team of editors is all Ivy League graduates, and thus hiring such a professional editor will result in more benefits. 

All our editors were immersed in the Ivy League environment, and aware of the culture, rules, and requirements of admission procedures. Not only do we offer a good editor, but also experts who gained previous experience in the admission departments. Most of them were engaged with the interviewing of prospective students or navigating them through other steps of the admission process. In such a way, you get the best advice on how to enhance your essay and create the best impression of your candidacy. The expertise of editors varies from the essays tailored for medical schools to MBA, Law Schools, and many other undergraduate and graduate programs.  

How can the Ivy League Editor polish your essay?

Ivy League editors have fixed many essays and thus know how to provide meticulous edits and make sure that your message is conveyed in a persuasive way, and more importantly – you sound unique. 

Depending on the chosen package the variety of services might vary. For instance, you can opt for the basic one. In this case, you will get a super-rapid service within 48 hours – this will suit those who have tight deadlines ahead of the schedule. You can upload 3 and more documents to be revised by the editor, with whom you will be in direct contact. Apart from this, you will be provided with the editing and the comprehensive critique, as well as the second round of editing. 

There is also a premier plan. This will fit for those who have two weeks of timeline, and some extra time for drafting. In addition to the above-mentioned services, you can brainstorm your ideas with the editor, have several rounds of email, and plenty of time to incorporate the editor’s suggestions. 

You can also go for the simplest plan which envisages the basic proofreading and provision of practical tips on how to polish your essay.

Regardless of the chosen plan, our editor will breathe life into your application documents and help you with the following set of issues:

Starting with the basics

At the first stage, your editor will upgrade your writing, while making sure your grammar, spelling, vocabulary, and overall readability are put in place. They also ensure that the tone and style are appropriate, and every single comma is not overlooked. It is crucial to ensure that your message is succinct and presented in a constructive way.

Quality and Structure

Our team of essay editors know-how to structure a concise and clear argument, provide a comprehensive answer, maintain structure and logical sequence in line with Ivy League high standards and practices. They provide you with comments on every gap your essay might have and practical tips on how to add value to your ideas.

Securing your own voice

All our editors have graduated from Ivy League universities, and thus they know how to personalize the essay in the most successful way. They provide their client with tips on what should be emphasized in the essay, or what should be dismissed. Editors will capture your authentic identity and will make sure that it is strong enough and goes beyond your CV, test scores, and school-related achievements.  

Our editors are knowledgeable of how to craft a flawless and noticeable essay.

Create a success story

  • Nariman M, Berkeley, Wharton, February 2020, Business Application Essay:

"Is EssayEdge legit?" That was the first question that bothered me. However, it is! English is not my first language and I'm sure there are usually different kinds of errors in my essays but I usually try to keep the flow right. I definitely need a great critique to find the issues and fix them for me. The basic option seems to work pretty well for me. 

  • Ellen M., Harvard business school, July 2020:

My editor noticeably improved my essay structure, flow and language, while still keeping my style and tone. Overall the process was super quick and easy. I would definitely order again in the future. If someone asks me about this service or is EssayEdge worth it, I will definitely recommend referring to these editors. 

  • Florence M., New York University:

At times it is good to talk to someone regarding your application. My resume is OK, but I am not good at writing cover letters. Just pick up the phone and talk to someone who already graduated from this uni – sounds pretty easy. And works well also.

Once you make up your mind – fill in an application and wait to be contacted. If in doubt – we can always consult you and select the best academic editor for you based on your preferences.
