Frequently Asked Questions
Write Track Admissions
Current trends show that the number of applicants to colleges and graduate schools are increasing at rates of up to 10% across the board. For high school students, the current student-to-counselor ratio is 482 to 1, highlighting the need for additional support. Moreover, applicants are now spending over $200,000 for college or graduate school. As a result, surveys indicate that nearly 1/3 of students hire an admissions consultant to not only increase their chances of admissions at top programs but also to get financial aid, such as scholarships/grants.
So when you assess the costs of education, competition, and impact of a top school on career success, admissions consulting is not only needed, but a required means of giving yourself the competitive edge to outshine the competition and stand-out as an applicant. This is a challenge that Write Track is eager to take on through the tried and tested strategies we have employed for over a decade.
We have worked with clients of every background; from those who have outstanding scores but acute writer’s block, to those who have multiple weaknesses in their academic record but have incredibly unique stories. The common challenge shared by both types of applicants is that they have extreme difficulty marketing themselves and conveying their stories, experiences, and accomplishments in a manner that sets them apart from other candidates. Write Track works to unearth those stories and help craft them into novel and exceptional applications that will get you noticed by the admissions committee.
Over the years we have been able to maintain an average of 93% success for our clients to top choice schools across our core program areas. We pride ourselves not just on helping clients achieve their admissions dreams, but helping secure millions of dollars in financial aid. Make sure to read the Success Stories of our clients

To answer the demands of our clients, Write Track has created a unique service, Application Preparation Process (APP), that simply does not exist in the admissions consulting space. For each unique program: CAPP, MBA-APP, Law-APP we provide a multi-step, proprietary process that creates a solid foundation to best prepare the client before the application writing even begins.
Both clients and Admissions Experts have raved how the APP service has helped streamline the application process through its in-depth analysis and advisory tools, strategic timelines, and multiple assessments services. Ultimately, the upfront work makes the application process thorough, faster, and more efficient.
The APP process starts with an initial consultation call followed by in-depth analysis of the client’s individual profile through a questionnaire, SWOT analysis, and strategy calls. The client will also benefit from comprehensive guidance on school selection, financial aid options, narrative creation, and CV review, among other services. All the material covered will then be transcribed and presented to you in the APP Report Card, which is your cornerstone guide for the application writing process.
Secondary Education & Extracurricular Development (SEED) is for those in 10th grade and provides all the academic mentorship, extracurricular guidance and social support through your own personal counsellor to maximize high school and pave the path towards college. This is a 3-4 months process.
College Orientation & Mentorship Pre-Application Services (COMPASS) is for those in 11th grade and provides all the academic mentorship, extracurricular guidance, social support, and pre-college planning you need to build your story, strength your profile, and be the “best high school college candidate possible!” Through this process, the student will be able to develop an outstanding and highly competitive profile that will allow them to hit the ground running when they start their actual college application in 12th grade. This is a year-long process service.
College-APP is aimed at rising 12th grade students (final year in high school) (See: What is the Application Preparation Process (College-APP, MBA-APP, Law-APP)? How does it work?).
Write Track has supported many students in the majority of health related fields including medical school admissions (MD and DO programs), medical residencies, nursing programs (NP, RN, LVN), dental school admissions, pharmacy school admissions and physical therapy programs.
Further, Write Track Admissions has worked on almost every major Masters and PhD program, from engineering and computer science to international relations and public policy, and everything in between. We have also supported most fellowship/scholarship program applications (Truman, Rhodes etc.) and professional services (resumes, cover letters etc.). While we do not advertise these services, we nevertheless have experts that can provide such support on a case-by-case basis.
Please Contact Us for further details and to see how we can best support your needs.
We begin the process with an in depth questionnaire followed by an extensive brainstorming phone consultation to outline each component of your application. Based on the notes you take during the consultation call (which is also recorded) and the questionnaire provided, you will submit a complete draft of the document to the Admissions Expert. Your Admissions Expert will provide you with up to two (2) macro/micro revisions (structure, content/theme, syntax, grammar). Note, these two revisions are for a single version of the document (same theme/structure). Once the various parts of the application are complete, the client will review a final time and submit to the program of choice (See How It Works).
For clients seeking review of existing drafts of your application materials, we will consider this on a case-by-case basis. This is because often it is far more effective in terms of admissions success to start the application with your Admissions Expert from brainstorming the ideal theme to crafting and reviewing the application materials due to consistent quality, flow and tone in your overall application.
ONLY YOU can draft your essays. Admissions committees tend to pay particularly close attention in determining whether your character reflects the school’s values. This evaluation is primarily carried out through your application materials. Therefore, these materials, especially your essays, need to illustrate YOUR unique personality, objectives, and writing style.
Write Track serves as your mentor, advisor and coach while training you for your big competition, namely your application. However, as part of our comprehensive services in the brainstorming consultation call, your Admissions Expert will help you formulate ideas for your essay(s). We will then require you to produce a draft of those ideas outlined, and together we will work with you through a comprehensive editing process to transform those ideas into winning admissions materials.
Deadlines are agreed upon and set at the start of the process. However, they are adjustable with the consent of both parties. Any delays by the client in turning in drafts or revisions to the Admissions Expert can hinder your chances of admissions. The usual turnaround time for services is 7-10 business days. However, we do provide expedited service at additional cost.
Please make sure to communicate your exact deadlines to your Admissions Expert during your Consultation Call and then to outline editing turnaround times to match those deadlines on your personalized project portal with your Expert.
Guaranteeing admissions to almost any school is impossible. The admissions process is often quite complex and multi-faceted. Many factors go into the decisions of the admissions committees, including the number of applicants, class diversity, when you submitted your application, and financial resources of the school among other factors.
Also to guarantee admissions, we would have to be hyper-selective of those who we work with to ensure we are working with only “top” candidates. That is not our approach. We do not turn away applicants who need our guidance. In fact, we seek to help those with inherent challenges in their applications so that we can get them over the admissions hurdles and into a program they never thought possible.
So while we cannot, unfortunately, guarantee admissions, we can guarantee that we will greatly increase your prospects of admissions by leveraging our years of expertise and winning strategies that have helped us earn a 93% success track record.
