Robert Schwartz has written for all of the major television networks and movie studios, and as a journalist for many of the country’s most well-known and respected publications and blogs including: The New York Times, Medium, The Huffington Post, The Daily Beast, Variety, Cosmopolitan, ESPN Magazine, Entertainment Weekly, and others.
This broad spectrum of experience makes him uniquely suited to assist applicants with the college essay process. As a journalist, he will ask all the right questions. As a feature film writer, he will help guide his applicants to tell a compelling story. And as a television writer, he will encourage them to do it with wit, style, and occasionally humor.
Robert engages applicants in ways that help bring to the surface everything they need to convey to admissions officers. His proven and successful technique will guide them through one of the most overlooked and misunderstood aspects of the college application process — the personal statement and individual college supplemental essays.
“The admissions officer at Princeton told us said that our daughter’s essay was one of the best he had ever read. We have Robert to thank for that!
