WHAT IS THE HARVARD CRIMSON COLLEGE ESSAY ADVISING?
The Harvard Crimson College Essay Advising is a college essay consulting and editing service run exclusively by writers at The Harvard Crimson, the nation's oldest continuously published daily college newspaper. Through The Crimson College Essay Advising program, high school seniors are able to connect with some of the best collegiate writers in the nation, receiving direct feedback on their work in 1-on-1 advising and essay editing sessions.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
The Harvard Crimson College Essay Advising program can be beneficial for students at any stage of their college essay writing journey. From students who haven't yet written a single word to students who are already on their fifth draft, all are welcome! For those who are in the earlier stages of the process, our coaches can guide students through the brainstorming process and help them develop a strong basis for their essay. For those who are further along in the process, our team specializes in drawing on their journalism expertise to offer targeted essay editing sessions for students to refine their work.
Registered students are paired with a mentor based on their academic interests, extracurriculars, and colleges they are applying to. We offer flexible scheduling, using a system through which students are able to coordinate session times directly with their mentors.
