About Us
We have been helping students for over 10 years write and edit Admission Essays or Statement Letters for admission to the university programs of their choice. During those years we've seen it all! We've worked with students applying to MBAs, Law School, Med School, Teacher's College, Social Work, Counselling Therapy, Creative Arts, Engineering, and many more.  
Our Writing Professionals are seasoned writers. They include Lawyers, Med Students, MBA graduates, Psychologists, Social Workers, and Master of Arts holders. What ever your academic inclination is, a suitable Writing Professional will assist you.

The Personal Statement / Admission Essay is an incredibly important part of your application and could make or break your application. Invest in the people that could help you get in! 

Did we mention we give a FREE FIRST EDIT?! It's easy. We'll edit the first section of your Essay / Letter, for free. If you see value in the corrections, we could then proceed to work together. That's been our practice from the get-go. 

Meeting Times & Location- We are free to meet in-person or work via phone, during business hours. We are located in Toronto, Canada.

Having gone to world-renowned business schools has taught me many things about presentation, story telling, and marketing; all of which are skills relevant to writing admission essays for students. I specialize in assisting students applying to commerce programs, or MBAs, and other related disciplines. Currently, I work as a marketing consultant in a major Health Products company in Toronto.
  3. Alex Aidan

I am a founding member of Apply to Grad, back in 2007. Given how important the decision of choosing a program or university to a student’s career is, I am rewarded by assisting students to reach their academic potential. My approach is always to find the fit between the applicant and the program, and working with the applicant to communicate that fit, passion, and knowledge in his or her admission essay.

At Apply to Grad I specialize in assisting Humanities and Liberal Arts Students with applying to Master or PhD programs. I have extensive experience in presenting information in the best possible light, and I can do the same for students that I work with.

I joined Apply to Grad in 2012, to work part-time on helping students who face the same challenges that I faced in getting admitted to Med School. Also, if you are interested in the medical field, I would be happy to guide you through the application process.
