Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Do you write essays for students?
A: NO. We do not “ghostwrite” or even draft essays for students.
We help you develop concepts you want to write about, teach you about different structures and narrative techniques, send you thought starters and examples, and once the essays are drafted, give editorial suggestions and make grammatical corrections (commonly known as proofreading).
We do not (will not) write essays for you. This is very important. The essay should be a reflection of who you are and what you want to say.
…but what if you don’t know what you want to say?
…or what if you think you aren’t interesting,
…you haven’t struggled,
…or you just hate writing?
We still don’t write your essay. Then it would be our essay, and that’s not the point of the exercise. One of the funniest and most amazing essays we ever helped a student draft was on the virtues of being an "average" kid. That student is now in nursing school at a major research university.
The Matriculadies believe every person has a story to tell, and that every person can learn to write in an interesting, compelling and personal fashion. Additionally, we hope you will learn things about the process of writing you can take onward in your life as a scholar, a professional and as a human.
It won’t be easy, but it will be worth it. We promise.
Q: How much does it cost?
A: Rates for each service or class are listed on our Enroll page.
Q: How do you get paid?
A: By Stripe or Paypal through our Enroll page.
Q: When will I be billed?
A: We bill 100% prior to the start of work. To ensure the highest level of service, we take a very limited number of clients each year.
Q: Do you make guarantees of admission or offer refunds?
A: No. The admissions process is multi-factorial and it is up to the client to choose schools that they meet the admission requirements for. We do not make any representation in regards admission or scholarship award. Additionally, we do not offer refunds once work has been contracted.
Q: How many versions of each document do you do?
A: We have found that with our method, virtually all essays can be completed in four rounds of revision. Beyond that, we should assess if additional support (billed on an hourly basis) is warranted.
