What types of application essays can students submit?

Personal Statement

The personal statement is an essay about you. Most colleges will ask for a personal statement. While this essay has general prompt ideas, you can write about whatever you’d like. Admissions officers use this essay to get to know you on a personal level. We recommend writing a story that reflects who you are and what your values are.

Supplemental Essays

These essays vary by university; some colleges require many supplemental essays, others do not require one at all. These essays are usually shorter in length and ask questions unique to the university. Essay prompts range from “Why do you want to go to this university?” to “What books did you read this summer?”. As a general note, all Ivy League and highly selective institutions require supplemental essays.

Prepory’s college essay review services

Essay review and editing are very different and serve different functions in the essay writing process. Luckily, our essay reviewers focus on both. We will begin with review. In the review stage, our team analyzes the content of the essay. We identify key themes, organizational structure, style, and tone. Once the content and construction is strong, we can focus on grammar and word choice. 


The most important part of the college essay begins with brainstorming. After reading a rough draft of your essay, our team gets a feel for who you are and what you’re trying to tell admissions officers. Then, we examine the essay prompt. What is this application essay about? Does your essay answer the question effectively? More importantly, do you answer the essay question using strong vocabulary, good voice, and evocative imagery? As a team, we brainstorm to figure out the best way to communicate all of the most important details about you in your essay. We will guide you in the right direction to wow the admissions committee.

Colleges want to know
who you are your interests what motivates you your background your story

With Prepory's help,
your essay will be more
focused organized engaging memorable


Our essay coaches are trained to look at the overall structure of the essay. It is vital that your essay follow a logical thought progression. Personal statements should not veer too far away from the essay topic but should still explore vast swaths of your personality, background, and interests. It is a very special art form to master and our college essay coaches are eager to help. 

Tone, Voice & Style

Your college application essays are yours. You should write them with your unique voice and style. Unlike other formulaic essays you’ve written in high school, this essay allows you to be creative and show off your personality. College admissions officers will use these essays to understand who you are and what you’re like. The tone and voice of your essay should reflect that. If you’re soft-spoken and intentional with your words, how you write and what you write can convey those special qualities. Our counselors are attuned to your personality and will work with you to ensure who you shine through.
