Testimonials

I think it [the essay] is perfect. I don’t think anymore changes need to be made. Thank you so much for your help!


“I retained Milton to assist with three graduate school personal statements. I immediately appreciated his integrity – he makes it clear that he does not “ghost write.” While my essays were very much my own, they benefited significantly from his editing expertise. But perhaps what I most value is Milton’s invaluable insight – developed over a long career as a graduate dean – to know instinctively how an essay will impact an admissions committee, and how it can be improved to communicate in a way that lets your strengths and talents shine through. His rates are extremely reasonable for someone able to provide that type of rare and valuable insight. I was accepted to the programs and have no doubt that his guidance as I developed my personal statements contributed to those decisions. He is well-worth hiring!”


Dr. K helped me tremendously in writing my Statement of Purpose for doctoral program applications. He took the time to read through my Statement of Purpose and meet with me 8 times! He is very detail oriented and made sure my writing was top-notch, organized, and succinct. When I showed my mom and husband the before and after versions of my Statement of Purpose, they were both impressed with the enormous improvement. Best of all, I got into one of my top choice programs! I highly, highly, HIGHLY recommend working with Dr. K.


“Working with Dr. Kornfeld was one of the best decisions I have made so far in preparing my applications! Milton provided clear direction for writing my essays, as well as giving thoughtful insight to assist in making the writings stand out. Milton provided a feeling of having a personal mentor and his quick response and task-oriented approach kept me on track. Not only did I get into P., I was also accepted at L. I highly recommend purposefulstatements.com. Thanks for all your help!!


“Milton did an amazing job editing my essay within a tight deadline. He worked through his Thanksgiving holiday to give me an essay that fit the school’s guidelines — half the size of the one I sent him. More than editing, I felt he truly cared about the total success of his client, inquiring and guiding on other aspects of the application process. I would recommend him wholeheartedly to anyone seeking able, experienced help for this critical aspect of the graduate school application.”


“Milton is a phenomenal editor and edits with an eye toward clarity and smoothness in flow. He is proficient, quick, and turns out extremely good work. I will definitely utilize the service for any future editing projects I need done.”


“I really loved the essay ! It is really well written and I am thankful for all your help.
I am really happy with the end result and cannot thank you enough for all the work you put into this.”


“For years I had been working towards gaining acceptance into a Doctorate Program until I found “yourdean.com”. Dr. Kornfeld did not simply edit my statement, he took the time to learn about the various programs I was applying to and review my credentials to make sure I was showcasing my relevant talents and achievements. I truly believe that the professionalism and strong articulation in my statement was what set me apart from the others. Now I look forward to working with Dr. Kornfeld in the future on my thesis and other academic papers.”

“It was probably the most intelligent, careful, and efficient support from a writing tutor that I have had. I am always reluctant to use help from writing services/tutors, but with “yourdean.com” it turned out to be not only a quality work experience but also an educational one. You actually learn to write from Milton, who painstakingly and patiently works on several drafts until you’ll choose the one that suits you…I would strongly recommend his service to anyone! Thank you so much!”


“I’ve heard from Vanderbilt and got in! Simply put, I’m beyond excited! I am certain my essay had much to do with my success, and so I thank you. As I suggested to you before now, you made my essay possible through your instruction and editing. I am deeply indebted to you for guiding me in crafting an essay that graduate admissions committees want to read. Without it, I think that I would have been denied. I cannot thank you enough.P.S. I still intend to pursue higher degrees in English. Please do not be surprised if I invest in your assistance, again. I hope – for my sake, I suppose – that you are still in this business! Best wishes.”


“I looked for an unbiased editor to read my very ‘personal’ artist statement and I found someone who was not only thorough but who was graciously available for email and phone interactions… My writing was examined with a fresh viewpoint and my essay developed the sharpness and focus that is demanded of today’s applicants. I will be attending my top choice for graduate school. I highly recommend working with Milton!”– Graduate School, Fine Arts
