Grad Counseling

The number of counseling hours you need will depend on the number of graduate programs to which you are applying, the degree program(s) to which you are applying and the total number of essays required. Please contact us to discuss your needs so that we can recommend the most appropriate plan.

Essays are an extremely important component of the application. AcceptU counselors help you select the right question(s), brainstorm appropriate topic(s) and edit essays to highlight your accomplishments while maintaining your voice. Counselors provide feedback on grammar, spelling, tone, message as well as content.

If you exhaust your counseling hours, you can purchase individual hours as needed, or purchase another prepaid plan. AcceptU will help you determine the best plan if you need to purchase additional counseling.

Yes. Questions can be emailed directly to your counselor; time spent by your counselor answering emails will be counted toward your total counseling hours. Scheduling and non-substantive emails will not be deducted from your total number of hours.

For grad school admissions, typical topics include pre-application planning, admissions story/strategy, outreach to professors, school list, personal statement prep, strategy and editing, résumé review, recommendation letter writer strategy, interview preparation and final application review.

All AcceptU clients receive access to our online application management tool. This will keep you on track with deadlines, facilitate communication with your counselor and keep all parties on the same page with regard to “to dos” and next steps.
