Which Package Should I Choose? 

1.

Get a feel for how many applications you’ll submit.

Your school list may not be complete yet – and that’s okay. Having a sense of how many applications you’ll be submitting will help you select a package.

Typically speaking, high-achieving students targeting more selective colleges (25% or lower admit rates) apply to an average of 12 colleges – but an increasing number apply to 15-20+.

Students targeting less selective colleges (50% or higher admit rates) typically apply to 5 or fewer. Everyone else is in between.

2.

Get a feel for where your essays will matter.

As a rule of thumb, the lower a college’s admit rate, the more essays matter. Selective colleges use essays to differentiate between tens of thousands of academically similar applicants.

We recommend getting coaching on your applications where your essays matter the most, which typically are:

Selective Colleges
Ivy and Ivy-equivalent, prestigious private colleges (Boston University, USC, NYU), competitive public colleges (UNC, Michigan, UCLA).

Selective majors and programs at less selective colleges
Often, some majors and programs have lower admit rates than the college as a whole. Common examples include computer science, engineering, nursing, business, and honors colleges.

Desirable out-of-state public colleges
Often, out-of-state applicants have lower admit rates than in-state (UT Austin, UVA, Florida).  

3.

Choose the right approach for you.

Here’s 3 approaches you can take to choose the right package for you.

Simple approach (recommended)
Get the package that matches the number of selective colleges, majors, and programs you’ll be applying to. This typically means an All Schools Package for high-achieving students likely to submit 12+ applications. It can also be our 3 Schools or 6 Schools Package for students only applying to a few reach colleges.

Top-choice approach
Only get coaching on your top choices with a 3 Schools or 1 School Package. You’ll spend less and get substantial value. You’ll then transfer what you learned to completing your other applications yourself.

Widespread approach
Get a Common App Essay Package to make sure you’re confident in the essay you submit to many colleges. Most college applications use the Common App personal statement essay.

Note: You can always upgrade your package later, but it may result in a higher price (e.g., prices increase in September).

My daughter got into all 8 colleges she applied to, including her reach school.
More than half the schools required extra essays in lieu of SATs! Her coach helped her organize her jumbled thoughts and notes into multiple well-written essays. Her feedback ranged from minor edits to major edits, and sometimes great advice on taking things a different direction.  I definitely believe a lot of her college acceptances were due to the essays. I would highly recommend hiring Prompt to help with college essays!”
The process went very well for my twin boys, the help & assistance provided by Prompt is really appreciated!!
The boys got early acceptance in almost all the schools they applied to, in the College of Engineering (with merit based scholarships) and am very grateful for the coaching provided for my boys. Hope this helps and big THANKS to your team."
My daughter really enjoyed working with her coach.
His feedback was always very helpful and positive and focused on what she could do to improve. She really felt confident working with him and his feedback kept her on track, so we were really happy with the process. In an extremely competitive admissions cycle she was accepted to 16 schools, including two Ivy League schools. She believes that her essays played an important role in her success."

Frequently Asked Questions

How many hours of coaching do I get?
You receive as much support as you need to feel confident in your applications. Your Support Team works to ensure all time you and your coach spend is high value. Typical coaching time varies by package (see the pricing table above). Most coaching time you receive is your coach providing detailed written feedback on your drafts. You’ll do video calls at defined points – primarily for planning your writing – but we’ll schedule more as needed.
How do you select my Writing Coach?
We have over 100 amazing Writing Coaches with a wide range of backgrounds and interests. We handpick your coach based on your school list, ambitions, and personality. In the unlikely scenario you don’t mesh well with your coach, we’ll work with you to select a new one.
Can I upgrade later?
Yes. You can always upgrade your package as your needs change. Just keep in mind that it may result in a higher price than you would pay now as our prices change as deadlines approach (e.g., prices typically increase in September). You can contact your Student Success Manager about upgrading. You cannot downgrade your package.
What happens after I make a purchase?
We have a standard, yet flexible process that works for every family. Here’s what will happen to kick off your program:
  1. You’ll receive a receipt via email and an email with instructions on next steps.
  2. Students and parents will each fill out a questionnaire to help us get to know you a little better and begin the coach-matching process.
  3. You’ll also schedule a 20-minute onboarding call with a Student Success Manager (SSM) to align on your goals, set a timeline, and learn how to use our platform.
  4. We will take the information from your onboarding questionnaire to assign you a coach and during the onboarding call, we’ll get your first meeting scheduled with your coach. 
  5. After onboarding, the student will complete our Application Plan module before their first brainstorming call with the Writing Coach. 
  6. You’ll have your first call, where you build out and align on your most compelling content with your Writing Coach.
  7. You’ll continue to follow your personalized timeline until you complete your applications.
  8. Your SSM will continue to stay in touch with you for any needs that arise. 
How many essays do I need to write?
It depends. Typically, the more selective schools you apply to, the more essays you’ll need to write. For less selective schools, you may only need to write the Common Application Essay and maybe 1-2 supplements per school. For more selective schools, you may write 1-8+ essays per school – writing 30-50+ essays across your applications. Prompt’s platform automatically creates a list of essays you need to write based on your school list.
Do we need another package for a program-specific essay at that school?
No. This is included in all of the school packages. Often, additional essays or portfolios are needed to apply to a specific school within a college. Examples include business school, engineering, nursing, computer science, art, theatre, dance, music, architecture, or design.
What colleges do students commonly apply to with Prompt?
Our students apply everywhere globally, with many acceptances at every top college every year. 98% of our students get into one or more of their top-choice colleges. About half of our students are applying to one or more Ivy or equivalent colleges. The other half are applying everywhere else. For example, a student we coached achieved their goal of getting a full scholarship to Mississippi State’s Honors College).
Here are some examples of popular colleges Prompt students apply and are accepted to:
  1. Ivy and Ivy-equivalent colleges: Harvard, Yale, Princeton, Brown, Penn, Columbia Dartmouth, Cornell, MIT, Stanford, UChicago, Northwestern, UC Berkeley, UCLA, Michigan, CalTech, Duke, Johns Hopkins, Georgetown, Vanderbilt, WashU.
  2. Selective private colleges: Boston University, Northeastern, Notre Dame, Rice, Emory, Carnegie Mellon, USC, NYU, Tufts, Wake Forest, Boston College, Tulane, Case Western, Brandeis, Syracuse.
  3. Competitive public colleges, majors, and programs: UNC, Texas, Virginia, Georgia Tech, UCSD Engineering, Washington Computer Science, Florida Honors Program.

  5. International colleges: Cambridge, Oxford, London School of Economics, Waterloo, Toronto, Trinity.
How involved can I be (or should I be) as a parent?
Parents don’t need to be involved as our program is designed specifically to work 1-on-1 with students. Parents can observe – attending calls in the background or reading drafts as they see fit. Parents are also asked to provide inputs via the parent form before the coaching process kicks off. If parents have any questions, they should communicate them with their Student Success Manager.
Do parents get a Prompt account?
Yes. Parent accounts are tied to student accounts. Parents can view outlines, the student timeline, and essay feedback. Parents also receive email notifications, such as when the Coach provides feedback or an essay is marked as complete.
Explain "98% of Prompt students get into one or more of their top-choice colleges".
We define "top choices" as any school that is a student's reach or target school. This is highly individualistic for each student, as some are shooting for Ivy League schools and some are not.

This number is based on admission data from the most recent year. Though we reach out to every family to provide a fair and accurate summary of results, families are not obligated to provide their results and may provide as many or few of their results as desired. We only include families who responded to our survey in the data, not the whole breadth of the students who work with us every year.
