What's Your Dream School?


Over the past four years, we've helped hundreds of students earn acceptance to the colleges and universities that are right for them. (See below for a list of our students' successes.) 

It Starts With You

What do you care about? What do you hope to learn? And how do you hope to grow over the next few years?

Answering these questions marks the beginning of the application process. After all, universities don’t just want applicants with attractive CVs – they want students who know who they are.

At Real Clear English, we’ll explore these questions with you right from the outset – helping you reach for as much honesty and clarity as you can muster.

The List

Out of that work, we’ll begin discussing colleges or universities that might be right for you. We’ll think about size, location, culture, teaching methods, and a dozen other factors. Over time, we’ll build a balanced list, including reach, target, and safety schools.

Timeline of Tasks

Next, we’ll agree on a timeline – benchmarks by which you’ll complete your essays, recommendations, interviews, introduction videos, and any other material that your schools require.


Typically, essays are the most difficult and time-consuming element of the application process. We’ll devote a significant portion of our time to helping you brainstorm and outline your essays. We’ll also review drafts regularly, providing precise guidance on everything from ideas and structure to grammar and style.


We’ll meet regularly on Skype to review your progress and work through any challenges you’re facing.

Submitting Applications

We’ll conduct line-by-line reviews of each of your applications. You’ll be finished before your deadlines – and proud of what you’ve accomplished.
