College App ASAP is a consulting and editing service designed to provide you with the individual guidance and feedback you need to complete a compelling personal statement and application.
College App ASAP was founded by Dr. Allison Deegan, who has more than 13 years of experience successfully guiding students of all ages and disciplines to admissions, scholarships, fellowships, internships and employment. Dr. Deegan provides all of the reviewing, editing and consulting services for College App ASAP.
Applicants who have worked directly with Dr. Deegan currently attend or have graduated from Harvard University, Yale University, University of California at Berkeley, UCLA, Columbia University, Dartmouth College, Reed College and many more.

Writing an application personal statement or framing an application strategy is not a science, it’s more of an art. There are certain requirements you must include, and prompts you must respond to, but you can’t leave out the good stuff – those true, engaging details that make you come alive on the page. With Dr. Deegan’s guidance and feedback, and access to her personal statement tips and techniques, you can put forward your best possible application. Dr. Deegan offers flexible consultation packages designed to fit most budgets, deadlines and needs.
Please note that Dr. Deegan does not provide any explicit or implied guarantee or warranty regarding admission to a specific (or any) school or program.
No matter where you’re applying, Dr. Deegan understands that an applicant’s academic record is just one component of the admissions process. The personal statement is another critical component, and it provides each student with a unique opportunity to put his or her best self on the page, for full consideration for admission, scholarships and success. Selecting the right school (or list of schools) to target is another critical aspect of the application process.
Guidance on personal statements can include topic brainstorming, multiple drafts, detailed feedback, email, phone or online consultations, and more, depending on the package selected.
Admissions and application consulting can include review and advice on all personal statements, development of a schools list, academic support, in-depth admissions guidance, email, phone, online or in-person consultations, and more, depending on the package selected.
Whether you need editorial advice on your undergraduate personal statement, or you are submitting an application for a highly competitive graduate or fellowship program, let Dr. Deegan provide the personal guidance you need to put your best foot forward. If you need more intensive consultation, draw on Dr. Deegan’s vast experience to get the most out of your application efforts.

The College App ASAP approach is to work with each applicant on a specific deadline schedule. When you select your service option, sign up and make payment, Dr. Deegan will provide a deadline schedule for you to work within. Applicants must submit their draft statements within the agreed deadline in order to receive feedback from Dr. Deegan in time to make revisions and submit your applications.
Application Bootcamp students select a specific date, complete pre-camp surveys and reviews, and spend a full day working to complete all of their applications. There is also a one hour, individualized follow-up with Dr. Deegan for all students. This concentrated format will help all applicants who are under deadline pressure, or who haven’t had access to personal guidance to complete their applications.
After signing up and submitting payment, Dr. Deegan will confirm your deadlines, preferred turnaround schedule and what services you would like her to provide. You will receive specialized materials to help you prepare to make the most of your College App ASAP services, created by Dr. Deegan.
If you select custom consulting services, Dr. Deegan will contact you directly to make those arrangements. Instructions for setting and meeting deadlines, and for submitting your work and receiving feedback, are outlined under each service option.
