“What I loved most about Liz's feedback was the amazing balance of critique: she said enough both to inspire my current work and gave me confidence in my writing, while simultaneously not afraid to point out the flaws and where I could improve.”
“Writing my college essay was one of the more difficult things I had to do last summer. Even though the essay question was fairly simple, I felt like I had no idea what to write, and everybody had a different opinion. Liz was the only person who really helped me. Instead of changing my writing in a way that would change my voice, she gave me constructive input that helped to make my essay read more smoothly, without changing the meaning, or making me feel like what I had written was wrong. I loved working with her!”
“We hired Liz Waltzman and Write Ahead College the summer before my son’s senior year in high school. He applied to about a dozen schools and all of them required at least one essay, many required multiple essays. Liz did a phenomenal job at working with my son and keeping him on track to hit all of his deadlines. She was extremely flexible with her time, always willing to work around my son’s busy schedule and making herself available when needed. She provided great insight and suggestions for his essays and her editing improved the finished product.
“We are thrilled with the outcome of the process, with my son having been admitted to many great schools. The most significant thing I can say is that my son felt that having Liz at his side was invaluable.

Liz is great with helping to keep the essay within the required word count and tightening up the vocabulary and punctuation while retaining the intended tone, voice, and message that the student is trying to convey.
