Meet the Team

Our stringent hiring and extensive training processes ensure that your essays are reviewed by the most qualified and experienced team in the industry. We take campus leaders and academic superstars that happen to be talented writers and skilled mentors and provide comprehensive training using our industry-leading experience. 

Raw Talent 

We only hire from the 99th percentile of our job applicants.

This ensures we start with the best writers and advisors at the programs you want to attend.

Comprehensive Training

We build on the individual strengths of our reviewers by providing comprehensive training to ensure each reviewer is not only an expert in grammar and syntax but also in college and graduate school admissions.

Industry-Leading Experience

The Narrative Applications team has worked with over 5,000 students and reviewed over 11,000 essays.


We work with more students and review more essays in one application cycle than most high school guidance counselors or independent educational consultants will over a 40-year career.
