As a counselor I appreciate how I can replicate (or try really hard to replicate) your sessions because you’ve outlined and scripted it all. We need scripts until we embed practices and make them our own. Ethan, you are so completely thorough; I love that!

IT'S THE REASON WE GOT ACCEPTED SINCE OUR TEST SCORES WEREN'T THE BEST.  |  ★★★★★

“I'm writing to you to thank you, specifically for your book, College Essay Essentials. My twin brother and I were just accepted to Dartmouth College Class of 2022 and it wouldn't have been possible without your help. Your book revolutionized the way we both wrote and I think it's the reason we got accepted since our test scores weren't the best. Additionally, your words struck a chord within me and I want to be someone like you, who makes the essay writing portion fun and adventurous just like you did for me. I'm certain you get many emails like this and I just wanted to let you know that you changed our lives for the better.”

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

Darn! I'm interested in the DIY package but I already signed up for one of these courses at full price this year. Can I apply what I've paid to the cost?  That would be crazy, right? But actually: yes you can. To clarify: if you've already purchased one of my courses in 2018, you can credit that towards the DIY package above. Just purchase using the link above, then email me at [email protected] with a list of the course(s) you already purchased and I’ll refund you the difference.
