The admissions firm, which was founded by a journalist and Ivy League expert, China Okasi, can be found online at PennandPaper.com. The company offers counseling to undergraduate and graduate applicants who need personal statement help. They say they want to ensure that both young people and adult applicants who have been out of school for a while, can reap the benefits of admissions help from consultants with extensive experience.
According to the CEO, who has three Ivy League degrees herself, "Penn & Paper provides admissions consulting to anyone who understands that competition is about standing out from the crowd." The company advises applicants not to shy away from the uniqueness they bring to their application pool. "If you have worked at a newspaper for 12 years, and you're thinking of applying to business school or law school, for example, we'll help you communicate to admissions officers that your background is special..." Okasi said.
Several reports show that the value of Penn & Paper's services is well worth the consumer expense. The company's application essay help, along with premium access to an admissions consultant, can run less than $200, which is an impressive deal, considering the quality of assistance that Penn & Paper provides. The company uses a dynamic strategy in helping applicants: it identifies problems with their personal statements, provides the creative help needed for stronger essays, and then sends back essay edits that increase their chances of acceptance into many competitive colleges, universities or graduate school programs. Overall, Penn & Paper's admissions counseling service tends to be personal and focused, which can be valuable when the world seems to be bombarding admissions offices with their applications.
