What you need to write for college applications

You may be required to write 1 college essay or as many as 30+ essays.
Personal Statement
  • This is the main essay that students use for multiple applications.
  • Other names include the Common App Essay, ApplyTexas Essay, Coalition App Essay, or Statement of Purpose.
Supplemental Essays
  • These essays are in addition to the personal statement.
  • Colleges often require students to write supplemental essays, activities lists, and optional additional information.

How we work together

We assign you an Application Advisor and Writing Coach. You’ll receive unlimited support from the beginning to the end of the application process.

Your Application Advisor keeps you on track to finish your applications well in advance of your deadlines.

Your Writing Coach helps you plan your content and revise your writing for every application.

What Prompt looks like for a typical student:

SHOW the whole process
Step 1: Discuss your goals with your Application Advisor
We set the stage for our work together.
  • We’ll align on your goals and create a timeline for getting everything done.
  • We’ll assign your Writing Coach and schedule your first call with them.
Step 2: Identify what you’ll write about
We start by identifying your experiences colleges will find compelling.
  • You’ll use Prompt’s application planning tool to learn what colleges are looking for and brainstorm content colleges will find compelling.
  • You’ll have a video call with your Coach to complete your brainstorming and decide on your most compelling content – which we’ll make sure gets covered on every application.
  • We’ll discuss what other things you can do now to make your content more compelling.
Step 3: Write your Common App Essay first draft
 Then we write the essay you’ll use for most of your applications.
  • You’ll use the Prompt platform and a call with your Coach to create an outline and start writing your introduction.
  • You’ll complete your first draft and submit it to your Coach for feedback.
Step 4: Revise and finalize your Common App Essay
You’ll finish your Common App Essay within 1 to 2 weeks of starting it.
  • Your Coach provides detailed feedback on how to improve the content, structure, readability, and grammar of each draft.
  • You’ll revise your essay after each draft and submit it for more feedback – until you and your Coach are satisfied with the result (typically 3 to 4 drafts).

If you purchased our Personal Statement package, our work ends here! The below additional steps are included in Complete Application Packages.

Step 5: Complete your first application
You’ll complete the application for your top-choice school within 1 to 2 weeks.
  • You’ll do a video call with your Coach to match your content to each part of the application (e.g., supplements, activities list, additional information) and create an outline for each of those additional pieces.
  • You’ll complete your first drafts for each piece and submit them to your Coach for feedback.
  • You’ll revise your writing after each draft and submit it for more feedback – until you and your Coach are satisfied with the result for each part of the application (typically 2 to 3 drafts each).
Step 6: Complete the rest of your applications
You’ll work application by application with your Coach for as many applications included in the package you purchased.
  • You’ll do a video call with your Coach to match your content (e.g., previously written essays) to the next application or two you’ll complete.
  • You’ll go through the draft and revision process for each essay.
  • After a couple of applications, you’ll get the hang of matching the content yourself. And you’ll see how to best reuse essays (or portions of essays) across applications. But your Coach and Advisor will still be there to guide and support you through the process. 

Step 7: Wait for the acceptance emails to enter your inbox :)

Stop worrying. Prompt has college apps covered.

  • Have applications you and your student are confident in – and that admissions officers will love!
  • Ensure your student completes their applications well in advance of deadlines – no stress!
  • Save time and reduce conflict. You won't be fighting over essays or providing feedback on your student's drafts. We guide your student through the entire application process.
