How the Team Concept Works

Your Stratus Prep team consists of 5 members plus you.

Each team member has an expertise in a specific area. The Primary Consultant is an Ivy League graduate with a Master’s degree or PhD. Collectively, your team has a combined 72 years helping students like you get into college.

circle-team-senior-strategist

Your senior strategist has a minimum of 5 years admissions experience. Once you and your primary consultant have gotten each essay to the 3rd draft–it is sent to the senior strategist for review. Your senior strategist reviews your common application essay and each of your school specific essays and provided high level feedback within each essay. You will receive a neutral read of your work–what is essentially a simulated adcom experience. This vital feedback provided by your senior strategist will be delivered to you and your primary consultant to incorporate into the final draft of your essays.

circle-team-secondary-reviewer

Your secondary reviewer has a minimum of 2 years admissions experience and is often an alum of the schools to which you are applying. The secondary reviewer reviews both your common application essay and each of your school specific essays. This review also happens at the 3rd draft stage. Each of your essays will receive a review with tracked changes from a secondary reviewer. They provide you insight regarding the academic and cultural fit you’ve demonstrated in your essay for each program. You and your primary consultant will use this feedback to further ensure your essays are tailored to fit each of your target colleges.

circle-team-professional-proofreader

Your qualified proofreader is a professional who edits your essays. The qualified proofreader edits your common application essay and school specific essays, once you have folded in your feedback from the prior two reviews. When you and your primary consultant feel each essay is ready to submit, then they will send it to the proofreader on your behalf. The proofreader will do a final read for flow, grammatical errors and typos. The turn-around on proofreading is 3 business days. The qualified proofreader ensures you have a polished final product by deadline and can press “submit” with confidence!
