PhD Application Service

PhD Application Statement of Purpose/Essay Service

Take control of the admissions process with the PhD Application Statement of Purpose Service, designed to provide you peace-of-mind in knowing that you are delivering an exceptional essay.

This service includes:

  • A questionnaire and strategy session. You introduce yourself through our questionnaire, then schedule an in-depth meeting to explore how to best express who you are and what qualifies you for success in your statement of purpose. Together we then brainstorm ideas around key experiences and craft a unique narrative structure that sets you apart from other applicants – all making sure that getting started is as painless as possible
  • An outline tailored to your individual needs and goals. Based on the questionnaire and our strategy session, we then come up with a series of prompts to get the writing process started. Past clients have found that this process offers a detailed roadmap for their writing—maximizing efficiency, enhancing quality of the final product, and saving time in the long run.
  • Two to four rounds of edits. Your statement of purpose is refined through a dynamic process with myself as your editor. I perform an intensive review, honing in on clarity, grammar, style and word usage – providing you my suggestions for improvements each step along the way. This back-and-forth refinement yields polished results.

PhD Rankings: Should You Care?

Do PhD rankings matter for graduate students? With careers in higher education becoming more and more uncertain and an unstable job market with a limited number of tenure-track positions available, it is vital to make an informed choice when selecting your PhD program…

“I had an amazing experience working with Phillipe on my essays. He was very easy to work with and provided excellent feedback / recommendations on my resumes and essays. He was knowledgeable and I was very happy with my final resume and essay. I do not feel like he was trying to upcharge me on any of his work and he was very clear about how much time he spent on each essay. I would highly recommend using his services to anyone who needs help writing essays or polishing up their resume.”
