Students working with Nancy Frieder, locally or through the internet, create college application essays that lead to acceptances to their top schools. Nancy knows what admissions officers want. She has gone through the process successfully with various clients and twice with her own children. She truly understands the stress applicants and their families face. No one can eliminate all of the turmoil, but Nancy alleviates it. She bolsters confidence and reduces the "nag factor." In 2013, the governor of Maryland issued her a community service award for her blog about writing college application essays. She and her husband are empty-nesters in the Maryland suburbs of Washington, DC. Their dog, Fez, reaps the benefits. For more information on getting help from Nancy, go to www.WriteStuffHelp.com

Nancy Frieder's college essay manual masterfully guides us through the rugged terrain that writing a superb college essay entails, and turns this at first daunting task into a piece of cake (pardon the cliché!). By breaking down all of the components of a good college essay succinctly yet clearly, Frieder helps students craft essays that are bound to catch the attention of jaded admissions officers who'll swear to have already seen it all. I've had great success using this guidebook with high-schoolers who, despite at first sweating bullets over writing their essays, once given this wonderful resource, proved able to craft original and polished essays of their own. I highly recommend you gift any timorous high-schooler this trusty manual, which will without a doubt turn them into veritable wordsmiths and set them at ease when wielding their pens (or, probably, laptop keyboards).
The author gave this book to my son as part of the package we received for essay help. It's a fantastic resource! He found it tremendously helpful. There are a lot of good nuggets in this easy-to-read gem. The book is divided into three parts. The second part, as the author suggests, can be skipped over until you get to the point in your writing that you need a good grammar/style reference. I don't have any more kids who will be applying to college, but I'm sure we will be passing this book on to others. It's really good.

Great service for all high school students. The book is a MUST for all students before they begin their pursuit of their college experience. The book not only explains and guides you to a proper essay, the author also offers her personal service to those in need. Good job, Nancy!
This book was really helpful in my college application process. The author really spoke in a way I could relate to and made writing my college essays less of a pain. I felt more ease writing my essays and actually felt less pressure to please the people reading my essays and just sold myself! I got into Cornell so go me!
This book was worth my buck! It was an extremely helpful tool when writing my college essays. It also made me more confident in my writing. I'm hoping I'll get into my top schools with the help of this book!
