Your Process. Your Voice.
BEC provides you with powerful tools that unleash your inner storyteller and equip you with the skills to navigate the complex admissions process. Working collaboratively with your family and school-based team, we help you develop a timeline that considers both institutional and personal deadlines. With our guidance, you'll be able to clearly articulate your unique story in a compelling and cohesive manner, ensuring that you make a lasting impact on admissions committees.
It is important for us to understand our clients not just as students, but as individuals. Therefore, we request that each applicant complete our questionnaire that covers everything from your college list and initial essay ideas to questions about causes and activities that drive your personal and professional ambitions. Keeping us updated on your student’s recent endeavors throughout the process helps our team to provide the best guidance for your student.
Before beginning the writing process, we strongly believe in providing an overview of the college landscape. We utilize sample applications and accounts to provide an orientation and timeline for our families. This foundation allows our students to confidently embark on their storytelling journey. The College 101 resources are introduced during your first few editing sessions.
Live Virtual Sessions
Our editors consider the development of the essay from inception to final word choice in order to achieve an end product that reflects your student’s abilities. Our editors are experienced writers, instructors, and mentors who build upon your student’s voice while maintaining the autonomy of their essays. Parent and teacher input is encouraged throughout the writing process — a team effort always yields the best result.
Our editing team provides comments and suggestions on the development, narrative arc, tone, and word choice of student work beyond the live meetings. Hours are billed based on the time an editor spends working on your student’s essays, usually no more than one hour per week, with hours increasing closer to deadlines depending on student progress.
