My Service

I help applicants each year to be accepted to college, university, and graduate programs including business, law, medical, and dental schools. I draft extremely effective personal statements and statements of purpose on behalf of my clients, including essays and letters for scholarships, fellowships, internships, and residency positions.

I have spent many years investigating what makes a Personal Statement or Statement of Purpose most effective. If you are to meet with success, your statement must be succinct, free of repetition, and eloquent, with appropriate word choice. Unlike other Statement writing web sites on the Internet, we are a 'service' not a 'business'. This is because I come from a long background of academic and professional training and volunteer work in the advancement of human rights, especially in the Developing World. We work to strengthen the principals of gender and racial equality, human liberation, and progressive communication, religion and spirituality, all in a search for increasingly creative and constructive ways to make the world a more egalitarian and harmonious place to live, particularly through the advancement of environmentally friendly technology. Most of the work that we do is on behalf of women, minorities, and applicants from other parts of the world who wish to study in the USA, Canada, Europe, or Australia. I look forward to helping you soon.

My service is quite different from other statement writing services on the Internet for several reasons. I am the little guy on the web, not a big business like most of my competitors. You deal directly with me. I answer all of your questions completely free of charge and I am solely responsible for producing a statement that you are very pleased with.

Please note that I attend to my clients in the order in which I have received their payments. While I do provide some applicants with a first paragraph at no charge or obligation, I cannot do this for everyone - only to the extent to which I have time to do so and the applicant provides me with inspiring material to work with. If you are in a hurry to meet a deadline and in search of priority attention, you will need to make your payment for my services here on my web site.

Search by Degree, Field, or Country of Origin

My Mission: Helping you to get accepted.

If you are available to answer any final questions that I might have by email, then I can almost always finish your essay within 48 hours from the time that you make the payment and provide me with the information that I need in order to make your statement as effective as possible. This is one of the great advantages of ,my service, that I provide rapid, timely service without asking my clients for a rush fee.

We work together as a team on your statement, you and me.

Your contribution to the final revision of your model essay is of especially critical importance if you are a non-native speaker/writer of English. Most importantly, it will help to convince the admissions committee that you indeed did write it yourself rather than having someone write it for you. I often leave in certain language peculiarities for non-native speakers that are common for that linguistic group intentionally, because this heightens the authenticity of the document and you are more likely to be accepted that way. You do not necessarily want the document to be "perfect," in one admission committee director's words, as if it were "written by a machine." You want your admission essay to be very human and attractive, so that the members of the Admissions Committee look forward to meeting you. This is why I call my product a model essay, because I recommend that you make at least a few small changes to it, incorporating more of your own words and voice. 

I respond promptly and free of charge to all questions and inquires.

I encourage you to fill out my interview form at the link in the main menu above, The more details that you provide, the better your statement will be. Especially for longer Personal Statements of Purpose, if you do not provide me with enough raw details and description, then I find myself having to invent things, and this is not in your best interests. You are using a professional service not because you want details to be invented, but because you want the relevant information presented in the most effective and professional way possible. So, you need to provide me with enough information to make your Statement as fully authentic as possible. I assume your voice, so I must have a very clear, basic picture of who you are and where you want to go, in order to make you look your best.

Iranian-American Woman Doctoral Student Essay, PHDs and the Quest to Better Humanity

All societies, no matter how primitive or developed, have recognized experts among them; and this has been especially pronounced in the areas of health and religion. Since the Middle Ages, these experts have gradually come to be recognized throughout most of the civilized world by the term PhD which comes from the Latin Philosophiae Doctor. In the original Greek, the term philosophy suggested “love of wisdom” or the “pursuit of in-depth knowledge”. Today the meaning has most to do with those thinkers whose reflections and research result in new knowledge. PhDs, then, are knowledge creators, not just lovers of knowledge.

The Doctor of Philosophy PhD is a terminal degree, as high as one goes, the pinnacle of expertise. What distinguishes the PHD from other degrees is the fact that it is only awarded based on an original contribution to our body of knowledge, generally referred to as ‘the literature’ and generally vetted in a process of peer review. The doctorate was first introduced at Berlin University in Germany. While the PhD varies greatly from country to country, it generally involves the submission of a written thesis that is successfully argued in front of one’s faculty. The thesis or dissertation in question must be deemed worthy of publication in peer-reviewed journals. The candidate is then expected to defend his work before a panel of experts (their number varies greatly across countries), in a process known as the “Viva” (Latin from Viva voce), i.e. “by live voice. A good PhD student should not assume that this is the end of the story for, ultimately, a PhD is merely a professional qualification.

The PhD is also a qualification that certifies aptitude to practice in one’s field of expertise. Thus, rather than an end, earning the PhD is usually just the beginning of one’s career. The PhD holder is admitted to a special club and has earned a license to practice. His or her opinion is generally respected both by his or her peers as well as the society at large.

I had the privilege of being raised by scientists, growing up in heavily research-oriented family. In fact, I spent the first 5 years of my life in graduate student housing on campus. I can remember going on Easter egg hunts at this university. All of my family and friends are either PhDs or Mds. My social life has taught me a great deal as well, since I have partied with highly successful scientists in a variety of areas, from astronauts to professors and physicians. I have gotten to know many people who appear to me to be running after titles primarily because they want money; on the other hand, I have also gotten to know many people in higher education who deeply cherish humanitarian values of community service and contribution. My father works for NASA, and when the space shuttle blew up my heart was broken; but we remember their contribution to science. My church has always been on campus and I have always prayed to God alongside PHDs. I have seen some PHDs who did not have happy lives. Those who do live to a ripe old age and die happy are those who live for their work, contribution to society, colleagues and academic community, putting the interests of their students and patients above their own.

 I have seen some missionary PhDs as well, those who take off for the Developing World and invest years of their lives struggling to help the less fortunate, when they could have stayed home in the lap of luxury with an enviable amount of leisure time. These are the PhDs that I admire most.

The PhD is not, of course, for everyone. Independence, self-drive, persistence, adaptability, brightness, commitment, motivation, reliability, discipline, creativity, these are only some of the key traits that make for a successful PhD student. A good PhD student isn’t a person who can memorize 1000 pages in a month or two or a person who knows all the techniques of a certain process or discipline through and through. A PhD is a person who can distinguish between right and wrong, a leader with sound ethical virtues that can produce results for the benefit of society. A good PhD student must think independently because it is ultimately his or her job to correct the mistakes of his or her teachers, to go further, taking the frontier of knowledge another step, advancing the literature through peer review.

A good PhD student is one who completely turns over her mind and soul to her PhD. She is patient and cultivates an open mind, nimble, able to switch directions, adapt, take advantage of novel opportunities as they present themselves. Never a perfectionist, a PhD must always be professional. He should be scrupulous, careful and accurate, always seeking to learn from classmates as well as teachers Oral and written communication skills are the central keys that open doors for PhDs. Respectful, mannerly, orderly, the PhD often seeks to rise above politics and strife, seeking instead to explore and discover in a never-ending search for the benefit of society. The PhD should not use science to acquire power for power’s sake, or primarily in one’s own self interest. A good scientist will have many opportunities to sell himself for money but he should always do the right thing, that which results in the greatest benefit for all. Humanity and honesty should be the priority in all aspects of decision making by PhDs. She should appreciate the resources that are given to her and not take them as they are granted. She should be grateful for the opportunity which has been given her and show profound appreciation for the investment that is being made in her, especially with respect to her thesis advisor. Most of all, she should be creative and a team player. If her colleagues or classmates move one step forward as a result of a piece of your information that should make you happy because you helped advance the entire system one step forward as a whole. The process is rarely smooth; along the way one is likely to learn a great deal about how not to do research as well as about how to do it effectively.
