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

Write Track is based in Santa Monica, CA. However, our work is carried out remotely, for the convenience of the applicant, through phone, video conferencing, website portal and email. Write Track has successfully worked remotely with clients around the world using these tools to provide 1-on-1 comprehensive and personalized admissions guidance that has made us a pioneer in the field.

Registration and Service Processing

There are several ways to sign up with Write Track Admissions. You can sign up through the simple form under the Contact Us page. You will then receive an email confirmation from Write Track detailing that we have received your information and will contact you shortly. We will then assign you to an Admissions Expert based on your program of choice and time frame of services requested. The Admissions Expert will then contact you immediately to begin the initial consultation call to outline the services you need and devise a timeline tailored to your needs.

 

You can also email info@writetrackadmissions.com, and we can contact you to start the enrollment process. Alternatively, you can also use the ChatBot feature to leave us a message OR call (888) WRIT-TRK and our team will answer your questions and assist you with the registration process. Finally, you can also direct message or post messages on our Facebook, Instagram and LinkedIn accounts.

A Write Track Staff will contact you by email or by telephone to begin the registration process. Based on your needs, we will schedule a Consultation Call with your Assigned Admissions Expert (See What is Covered in the Initial Consultation Call?). After services are selected and payment is complete, a brainstorming call is scheduled and the work begins! If you know exactly what you are looking for, our team will help you through the check out process and get you ready to embark on the Write Track with your Admissions Expert.

Write Track Admissions Experts are assigned to a client based on a number of factors, including geographic location, availability, expertise in the area of admissions, experience with the program, and cultural background, among other factors. Interaction with your Admissions Expert will begin with an initial consultation call or email and will be followed by interaction through your personalized project portal.

 

You are also welcome to call/email the Admissions Expert to discuss drafts and ideas for their application. In order to better manage, track and organize your drafts and notes, you should only use the Write Track personalized portal for all document management and interactions with your Admissions Expert.

During the Initial Consultation call, you and your Admissions Expert will review your profile, discuss applicable Write Track services, outline your service timeline, and answer any outstanding questions. You should use this opportunity to get to know Write Track Admissions, your Admissions Expert, and how we can work together to get you into your dream program.

Based on years of best practice for both the client (program deadlines and academic/professional/personal commitments) and Write Track (schedule of Experts and workflow management), Write Track Experts will complete the services for an initial contract in 2 weeks to a one month period depending on the number and complexity of services requested. (Note, expedited services are also available). Only in limited, case-by-case circumstances, will Write Track allow initial contracts to extend beyond a one month period. (Note: If a client requests services in a week or less, there will be a 30% surcharge added to the service(s)).

 

If additional services are requested, then the contract period will be extended to ensure work is completed in a timely manner. Your Expert will work with you to outline deadlines that meet the allotted contract period. If the client decides to defer the application process to the following year, Write Track will provide a credit for the balance of the service contract to be applied within one calendar year (Note: prices of service(s) may change from year to year).

Often clients request certain services to specific schools, only to later realize that they applied to too few or that their new admissions exam scores enable them to apply to more “reach” or “target” schools. Please inform your Admissions Expert, who will coordinate with the Write Track team, to add further services to your contract.

We have carefully crafted our services, over the years, based on tried and tested methods to greatly increase the chances of admission of our clients. As such, our tailored Comprehensive Packages ensure (1) consistency in the materials produced (flow, style, syntax) when undertaken from the start with your Admissions Expert, (2) time is saved when working on all parts of the application, and (3) lower overall cost for you. These factors are critical to your success on your application materials.

Pricing and Payments

Our goal is to be priced as competitively as possible for our clients as compared to our competitors. Our prices are based on years in business, our industry high track record, and the caliber of the Admissions Experts that will be servicing your admissions needs. We also consider several other factors when pricing our services including: volume based on time of year (early bird discounts); number of services (price break with increased services); and turnaround time (expedited service fee).

We provide our clients with a variety of payment methods and a payment timeline to suit their financial needs. We conveniently offer payment using Credit Card (additional flat rate charge of 2%) and Paypal (additional flat rate charge of 4%). On a case-by-case basis, we offer Bank Transfers (Zelle or wire transfer).

 

Please inquire with Write Track regarding these payment options. Remember, any delays in payment will prevent Write Track from commencing services and you may be assessed a late fee per the terms of service (See Terms & Conditions).

Write has 75 years of combined experience and has helped over a thousand clients into top programs with millions of dollars in financial aid. Given this track record, we never offer our services “on sale.” We aim to charge the same rates for everyone and in return you can rest assured you will definitely get what you pay for through the highest quality and best value service available. (Note: Price breaks are available for package services. Please Contact Us for more information).

For each client you refer and we procure, you will immediately receive an Amazon gift certificate! But it doesn’t stop there: your referral will also receive a discount for the services requested! So its a win for you, a win for your referral, and a win for Write Track!

 

Note: Please make sure that your referral notifies us of your name and email so you can be rightly rewarded for your efforts!

Services

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.

COMPASS seeks to provide high school students with guidance, mentorship, and support throughout high school to prepare to be the best college candidate possible.

 

COMPASS is aimed for rising Freshman (9th grade) to final semester Juniors (11th grade).  It is a year-long service (academic year) though the service is not prorated if taken later in the academic year. The service can be renewed each academic year. 

 

COMPASS comprises of academic analysis, personality reports, and mentorship/guidance through a series of comprehensive questionnaires and consultation (phone or video) calls with the student. 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. For 12th graders we offer College-APP (See What is the Application Preparation Process (College-APP, MBA-APP, Law-APP)? How does it work?).

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.

We regularly host workshops, webinars and speaking series around the world. We welcome such opportunities to provide tailored content to your audience. Please Contact Us for further details.

Policies

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.

Write Track Admissions does not offer refunds after services are complete. This policy is due to the subjective nature of the editing services and the outcome of the admissions process. In the event a client seeks a partial refund after services commenced but before they are complete, the user will be assessed a seasonal hourly rate for the time expended or credit for services rendered including but not limited to, initially drafting/editing, phone consultations, email correspondence, and other communication. Please visit our Terms & Conditions page for more details on our refund policies.
