Robert Schwartz

My process is to engage deeply, thoughtfully, and enthusiastically with every applicant. I climb inside their heads looking for clues into who they are. My mission: to help them unearth original essays that differentiate them from the thousands of other applicants vying for a select few spots. My role is to be their shrink, tutor, editor, and cheerleader. This is how I help applicants achieve their goals and get accepted to their top choice school.

To the college essay admissions process I bring skills honed as a television writer, a screenwriter, and a journalist. Entering my ninth year, I have worked with nearly 400 bright, motivated, and exceptional applicants who each year are accepted to T10 colleges and universities. I love what I do and am immeasurably proud of every applicant I work with and their results.

Dig deep. Be original.
