The Cure for the "Common" Application
Let Passport take the stress out of the college admissions process by helping you discover schools that are right for you, write compelling and unique college essays, and help you manage the details of deadlines and applications.
We work with students to find their biggest strengths and present them on paper. There is no formulaic approach to the essays that works for all students. One of the benefits of working one-on-one is that we tailor our advice to what makes sense for you as a writer and as an interviewee. There are no cookie-cutter essays here.
