Can I contact my advisor after they have returned my revised essay?

Yes, FourthWrite advisors often exchange a couple emails with clients after returning their revised essay to answer follow-up questions and address any lingering issues.

What will we talk about in our consultation?

Consultation agendas vary depending on the needs of the individual client, but they we generally focus on developing a client’s admissions positioning and brainstorming the best approach to the essay(s) at hand. In most cases, clients walk away from the initial consultation with an outline of their essay that they can use as a guide when they draft their essay.

I have to write a bunch of essays for multiple school applications; can FourthWrite help me with all of them?

Absolutely. If you are applying to multiple programs with different writing requirements, we generally recommend that you start with a consultation with a FourthWrite advisor in order to map out the best course of action. The Comprehensive Writing Support Service is often the best option in these cases, and we can better determine that once we know the scope and sequence of a client’s applications.
