College Is Classist — That’s Why Education Pays
Why pay for one school over another? Because they sort students into the kinds of jobs they’ll get, the money they’ll make, the lives they’ll lead — and the social classes in which they’ll lead them.

"Writing has never been my strong suit and so I always worry when I have to write for applications. Fortunately, I didn't have to do it alone. After working with Michael on my medical residency application, I got 17 interview invitations—before the medical school even sent out my dean's letter! He asked all of the right questions to help me express what I had been trying to say, and the result was the essay I had imagined but couldn't write on my own. Michael is fantastic at what he does, and he can do the same for you!"
"Attending an Ivy League university is hard work for anyone, but even more so for a non-native English speaker. When I first came to the U.S. from Israel, I was concerned that the language barrier would keep me from succeeding. Thankfully, Michael was there for me. He helped me polish my prose so that I could show what I really knew. My success in college launched my career in investment banking, and Michael helped to make that possible. I hereby give him my highest recommendation."
"After working with Michael on my law school applications, I received a full-tuition scholarship to a top-25 law school. After working with Michael again three years later to complete my resume and cover letter, I landed the job I wanted as a corporate attorney despite the difficult legal job market. I'm not saying that Michael's the reason I got accepted or hired, just that he's a straight-up sorcerer with words."
"When I was applying to college, my brother, Robert, raved about his experience working with Michael and strongly encouraged me to do the same. I worked with Michael on my college application and got a scholarship, and then I worked with him again on my resume and landed an internship with a civil engineering firm. As usual, Robert was right. I can't say enough good things about Michael."
"Michael's careful editorial eye, his finely tuned ear for the language, and his seemingly infinite knowledge base helped me finish grad school with a perfect GPA. I worked with him again to polish the manuscript to my literary memoir, and it is now about to go up for auction with several major publishing houses! Michael is without a doubt the best editor I have ever worked with and I would wholeheartedly recommend his services to anyone."
"After working with Michael on my resume, I got to leave a job I didn’t like in a city several hours away from my family and friends, move back home, and take a better job for more money. He really helped me understand what recruiters look for on a resume so I could tailor it to their expectations. I couldn't have asked for anything more."
"Michael helped me get into my first-choice professional MBA program, and then after working with me on my resume, he helped me advance my career by landing my current position in marketing. I couldn’t be happier with my experience working with Michael."
