Personal Statement Feedback Service
Need another set of eyes for your college admissions personal statements? Come to TestMagic for some honest feedback on your personal statements! We have been educators since 1998 and have sent young leaders to great schools every year.
Our Personal Statement Reading Service is designed for students who have already written a draft or two and would like some quick (45 minutes) one-to-one help on how to make their drafts better. Students who have difficulty starting their essays are encouraged to check out our blog posts about college applications for inspiring tips and examples or sign up for our College Admissions Consulting Service for more guided assistance.
How it works:
- Add this product to your cart and checkout.
- We will contact you to ask about the school(s) you're applying to, how many essays you're bringing, etc. Your appointment will also be set up at this time. (Remote meetings will work also; you do not need to be physically present at our San Francisco office.)
- Show up at TestMagic with your personal statements (Google Drive is ok) on the day of your appointment!
- If you'd like additional help with your personal statements after your appointment, consider signing up for our College Admissions Consulting Service.
- Limit one per person, please! Current students and people who are not TestMagic students are welcome. College applicants only, please; no professionals, teachers, writers, etc. permitted.
- 1 application set maximum, please. (For example, 4 UC responses or 1 Common App + 1 set of supplemental questions.) We want to ensure that each essay receives adequate review and feedback in the 45-minute timeframe. If your set of essays is particularly long, we may need to decide how to best spend the 45 minutes on your essays.
- Please have a reasonable draft ready before you meet one of our English teachers.
- We will provide honest feedback on overall quality, uniqueness, aptness to the prompt, grammatical accuracy, and more. We will make some suggestions for improvement, but we will not do extensive editing.
