In Sciences Po Application Review:
Get your motivation letter reviewed before applying!
Why choose me for your Sciences Po application review?
1. I’m specialized for Sciences Po!
As a 2016 graduate of a Sciences Po master’s program, I’ve not only successfully applied to the school myself, I also know what kinds of students Sciences Po is looking for.
2. I’m both a native English speaker and a TEFL-certified English teacher.
I’ve taught English in the United States, Turkey, Spain and France. That means I really know how to correct English. In addition, I complete all detailed reviews using Microsoft Word (track changes) and include grammar and spelling corrections, notes on style, organizational help, and overall content review.
3. My rates are competitive.
“I was just informed that I have been admitted at Sciences Po for the MPA’s 2016 intake. I am not sure whether I would have made it without your help, so I would like to thank you one more time for the great job you did.”
— T.O. (admitted to the Master of Public Affairs, Sciences Po)
References for personal statement (or letter of motivation) review service offered by Maija Wallace
“Wow, thank you so much for your insightful feedback. I can’t even express how appreciative I am to have your knowledgeable guidance. You’ve made invaluable improvements to my CV and personal statement!”
— A.L., Master of Environmental Policy 2017 applicant
The letter is way beyond my expectations! I think it looks perfect! Thank you very much for all your help! I was feeling very insecure about my personal statement and your comments and edits made all the difference, now I am very confident about it.
— M.V., Master of Human Rights and Humanitarian Action 2017 applicant, accepted to PSIA (2017)
Your feedback was of tremendous help and was exactly what I had been looking for! In particular, I valued your comments on the substantive issues of the personal statement — e.g. the need to emphasize the PERSONAL aspects, to avoid repetition (or duplication) between CV and statement, and to present a clear idea what the field of study at SP would be. Overall, I think that my personal statement benefitted greatly from your input.
— Master of International Security applicant, accepted to PSIA (2017)
You have provided great help in improving my reference letter and CV by making a clear story line which explains why I would be the right candidate to be accepted at Sciences Po.
— J.S., Master of International Economic Policy 2017 applicant
I really felt that you took quite a bit of time to make these edits and that you provided feedback as to how to better structure my letter. Thanks again!
— Master of International Development applicant, accepted to PSIA (2017)
“Your help was precious to me and I honestly never thought about applying to a “top” university as I didn’t think I was qualified enough, so I really want to thank you for your positive comments about my CV/motivation letter, as they really mean a lot to me!”
— B.R., Master of International Development applicant, accepted to PSIA (2016)
“I asked Maija for help. Not only was she really professional when it came to checking my letter of motivation and CV, but also she looked into every detail of my work. She explained why some of its parts should not be included. In the end, she made me feel way more confident about my application. I would highly recommend Maija to anybody wishing to apply to any University.”
— F.W., Master in Human Rights and Humanitarian Action applicant, accepted to PSIA (2016)
