With Acceptional.com college applicants can read the application essays that their target schools have accepted.
Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) August 04, 2011
Acceptional today announced that in the same week as the launch of their new website, which allows college students to share successful college application essays with applicants, they have also surged past a significant milestone – over 1,000 college essays uploaded.
The news marks a major step in the startup’s mission of leveling the playing field in college admissions. Acceptional adds transparency for applicants into the mysterious decisions of college admissions departments by giving them the opportunity to see what applicants like them actually wrote to gain admission.
Acceptional.com allows college students attending top 25 schools to upload their successful admissions essays and get paid when applicants pay to read their college essays. With over 1,000 successful college essays already on the site, Acceptional has its sights set high.
Acceptional CEO Paris Wallace says, “Acceptional gives students a benchmark for college admission essay writing. A college bound senior can find the average GPA or SAT score of their target school but there’s no way to determine the caliber of essay she needs to write to get accepted. Acceptional provides that information to applicants while making it nearly impossible to plagiarize.”
Acceptional’s offering doesn’t stop with personal statement examples. Acceptional has developed unique, part-time, virtual internships for high school students interested in adding something unique to their college resumes. Students can join two tracks – one for entrepreneurship, marketing and social media and another for digital journalism. College students at Acceptional’s partner schools can also become campus reps and gain valuable management and marketing experience while still in school.
Acceptional takes the threat of plagiarism of the personal statement examples in its database very seriously. The company opens its databases directly to admissions offices and works to get its college essays in the anti-plagiarism database used to scan each college application for plagiarism. In addition, Acceptional uses technology that prevents users from downloading, printing or copying/pasting the essays. Additionally, all users must agree to the company’s strict anti-plagiarism policy.
With over 1,000 personal statement examples and counting, Acceptional is quickly gaining traction as an essential tool for college applicants as the 2011-2012 college admissions season approaches. Reading Acceptional college essays and personal statement examples costs $10-$15 per essay, depending on how many you read.
