Application Swift Action
Application Swift Action is an exclusive 1-on-1 opportunity to work directly with me, the Founder & CEO for an intensely productive session focused on polishing your applications to perfection so that you are 100% confident submitting.
I’ve been successful helping students get into their dream schools.
Through my unique process, I help people find their voice, get clear on their career vision, and stand out in front of the Admission’s Committee.
This one-on-one session is open time for you to use with me however you like.
If you’d like an idea of a typical agenda, here is a sample for a 90-minute session:
20 minutes | Resume Revamp
We will review your resume line by line to make sure that it looks great, it sounds great (we’ll get rid of confusing jargon, boring phrases, and meaningless text) and your accomplishments are memorable, understandable, and impressive (we’ll use high-impact phrases and lots of numbers to make you look like the incredible leader and doer you are).
30 minutes | Intensive Essay Editing
We will go through every single essay for your #1 college application and read it together word for word (be prepared: I have a mesmerizing, lovely reading voice). I will review it for spelling, grammar, clarity, and word choice. I will also give you guidance on improving the structure and flow of your essays. If you have any drafts that remain to be completed, I will give you question prompts to help kickstart your writing of your essays.
10 minutes | Recommender Strategy
I’ll help you choose the right recommenders, how to prepare them to write an effective letter for you, and help you strategize for potential issues like a recommender that wants you to write your own letter or a recommender who is dragging his/her feet on turning in your letter.
15 minutes | Scholarship Game Plan
Every $10,000 worth of student loan debt you can avoid taking on will mean ~$100 less every single month you’ll pay in student loan payments for the next ten years. I’ve helped my clients earn over $2.5 million in scholarships from top colleges. I’ll help you identify the scholarships you are eligible for and we’ll discuss how to position you to be competitive for them. Note: I can’t guarantee that I’ll be able to recommend a scholarship for you to apply to, but I’ll do my best!
15 minutes | Q&A and Action List
I’ll answer your burning questions about applying, interviewing, campus visits, life on campus, connecting with alumni, whatever you want to know. We’ll also make sure you leave the session with a clear action list of what to do after our session to make sure your application is completely ready to be packaged and sent off to the school of your dreams.
Who this is for:
Applicants to top-tier colleges who want one powerful session with Michele that will polish a near-finished application for submission
Applicants who have a #1 dream school to which they are applying and want to make sure they put 100% of their effort, energy, and resources into submitting the best application as possible to that school
Applicants who want to use the changes I make to your application materials in this session to create a model application that can serve as an example for crafting all of their other applications
People who have drafts of most of their essays and want to receive a thorough expert review and candid feedback on a set of essays for a school
People whose applications are nearly finished but seem to lack that special “pick me” factor

Frequently Asked Questions:
How much will you be able to edit?
For every 10 minutes of our call that you dedicate to live editing, I can edit about 500 words or provide verbal comments for suggested changes on 1 resume page.
Can I have you review materials for multiple schools?
Yes, I’d be happy to! You can have me look over materials for multiple schools and various degrees.
Will you review my letters of recommendation?
Yes, if you have the permission of your recommender to have them edited, I’d be happy to edit them.
Can I purchase the 90-minute session and split it into two 45-minute sessions?
No. It’s too much administrative hassle. Either purchase the 90-minute session or the 40-minute session. You can purchase multiple sessions if you like.
If I’m too busy to have a live call with you, can I just send in my materials to be edited by Michele?
No, this is a live deal only. If you are unable to have a live call, this offer is not a fit for you.
What is the guarantee?
There is no guarantee. I don’t guarantee you’ll get into any particular school or receive any particular scholarship—or that you’ll get any particular result at all. If you’re looking for a guarantee from a 40-minute or 90-minute intensive coaching session, your expectations are wildly unrealistic, and we are definitely not a good fit.
How can I make the most of the session?
Once you purchase it and receive your client folder, upload your resume and all your essays so that you aren’t fumbling around during the session looking for them. Upload more content than you think we’ll be able to get to, so that in the case we have extra time, you don’t have to go digging for your application materials. Type up your list of questions for me so you don’t have to think of things off the top of your head. That’s it!
