The My Ivy Difference

We are the premier essay editing and creative writing firm in the nation because we focus on all aspects of writing. We go way beyond just grammar (though we cover that too). We teach our students how to make emotional connections with their audiences and tell their own unique stories. We’ll help you get accepted to your dream college by accepting you for you and bringing out the best in you. It shows in our results. Our students have been the ONLY ones to win the prestigious $25,000 Davidson Fellows Scholarship for multiple years in a row. We've taught Creative Writing at Princeton University and Columbia University Splash and coached 50% of the winning 2021 Presidential Scholars in the Arts in Writing, three Commended Foyle Young Poets, a National Student Poet (the nation's top prize for poets presenting original work), and two finalists for the National Youth Poet Laureate competition (of which celebrity poet Amanda Gorman was the inaugural poet). We incorporate the storytelling approach that nets our students these wins into every aspect of the college essay-writing process.


Our students have been recognized by the National YoungArts Foundation, the Poetry Society of America, the Poetry Society of the UK, the Alliance for Young Writers and Artists, and more. We have also helped many students get accepted to the prestigious Iowa Young Writers’ Studio, Kenyon Review Young Writers Workshop, and Adroit Journal Summer Mentorship Program. Above all, their essays have gotten them into all 8 Ivy Leagues, Stanford, and so many other Top 20 colleges and universities.Our results are unparalleled in the industry.

🌟 Come as you are. Leave as a star. 🌟

Reviews of Krystle's Writing

"It’s clear that this is a voice worth listening to, a voice that will have its way with language and do things line by line that will be striking, while still showing an ability for narrative momentum. So I get drawn in early [vital for standing out amongst thousands of college essays!] and that force never really dissipates... It shows spectacular control... all of this is a terrific way to engage us, to make us care, and to make us endlessly curious... I just want to stress how accomplished and impressive this story seems to me."

--Author and Columbia University Professor Ben Marcus
