Why T.A.M.

Why use The Application Masters?

  • Your writing is often the only way other people judge you, whether it’s when you apply for college or a job. We’re talking about your career, your company, your future. Don’t let silly mistakes or less-than-stellar writing keep you from getting into the college or job of your choice.
  • We are the experts. (We’re not the ones saying that. Others are.) Read our client testimonials. Our editors have gone through the college application process and succeeded in getting into the top-ranked college of their choice. They’ve also led successful careers that require them to write everyday. In addition, The Application Masters’ founder/president/chief editor Julie Tam, whose own college application essay was published in The Princeton Review’s book College Essays That Made a Difference (2003), personally edits most of our clients’ work. When another editor does the editing, the work isn’t finished until Julie gives it the final proofread. Learn more about Julie.
  • Spelling and grammar check programs don’t catch every writing error. They certainly won’t make your writing more interesting. Example: Were going to the mall because its air conditioned. A leading word processing application (we won’t name names) didn’t find any errors in the italicized sentence above. We did. The corrected sentence: We’re going to the mall because it’s air conditioned.
  • We are a small company that provides affordable, personal service that focuses on you as an individual. We don’t edit thousands of college applications or essays a year. We don’t have the time. Instead, we spend time making sure each application we do edit is error-free. Founder/President Julie Tam personally responds to all clients and edits most of their documents. When another high-qualified editor edits your work, she gives it the final read-through before your service is complete. That’s the kind of company we are.
  • We have served a diverse array of very satisfied clients, from individuals to major companies. Our clients include international companies, small businesses, professors, and high school students (their parents pay, of course).
