What should I submit?

You should submit the earliest draft of your essay you can. It can be a free-write, outline, very rough draft, or a later draft. Students who get guidance earlier in the process can save hours per essay. Prompt's Essay Specialists will help you think through your content and provide you with an example outline to help you improve your structure.

May I submit multiple drafts?

Yes. We encourage it! We recommend getting 2-3 reviews of your personal statement essay and 1-2 reviews of your school supplements. When you submit multiple drafts of the same essay, we try to have the same reviewer provide feedback again.

May I chat with an Essay Specialist before I share my essay?

You may use our live-chat feature to ask our Essay Specialists basic questions before you submit your drafts or after you receive feedback. You may also include notes about yourself and your draft when you submit an essay, and our Essay Specialists will do their best to meet your needs. If you want more detailed help, you may purchase a 50-minute video coaching call.

How do the brainstorming calls work?

You select a time slot and tell us what kind of help you’re looking for. When the time comes, you sign into Prompt and discuss your essay ideas with your Essay Specialist. You’ll leave with a written action plan that will make you feel confident as you write. When you’re ready for essay feedback, we’ll make sure the person you spoke with reviews your work.
