Job Description

We’re a leader in the college admission field and are committed to bring more ease, purpose, and joy to the college application process. We center students in our process and empower them to express who they are in their application essays, and develop their writing craft along the way. 

Starting in 2021, we launched an online essay review platform in partnership with College Vine to provide expert essay reviews and topic checks to their 600,000 users. College Vine’s mission of closing the college access gap complements our commitment to access and equity, and we additionally launched CEG’s own essay review platform.
