Hi, I’m Julie Frank, college application essay coach and author of CRUSHING THE COMMON APP ESSAY: A Foolproof Guide to Getting into Your Top College (SparkNotes, 2018).

With warmth, humor, and rigor, I guide students as they brainstorm ideas, craft a story, and reveal the unique value they will bring to their college campus, resulting in an authentic, meaningful, moving essay written in the student’s own voice.

Students I’ve coached have been accepted at Harvard, Stanford, Princeton, Penn, Columbia, Brown, MIT, Georgetown, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Vanderbilt, Amherst, Northwestern, Vassar, Michigan, NYU, and 100 more colleges and universities.
