At EssayMD, we think the key to great writing is great editing. Our clients reap the benefits of seasoned experts who have racked up thousands of hours of editing and consulting experience.
Our editors claim impressive professional and academic credentials. Each holds at least a Master’s degree. In addition, EssayMD editors must also prove themselves by producing their own winning graduate school admissions essays. Exemplifying this standard, EssayMD founder, Marci Madsen Martinez, has never been denied admission to any academic program to which she applied, including Ivy League and Tier One institutions.
As an undergrad, Martinez followed an athletics scholarship to Northern Arizona University, where she competed as a member of the track and cross country teams. Following graduation (summa cum laude) from NAU's New Century Honors Program, Martinez applied to several Ph.D. programs in English, receiving offers for fellowships and full funding from top-ranked schools. She ultimately selected The University of Texas at Austin for the program's perennial top-twenty ranking. She would go on to successfully earn her M.A. in English, complete her English Ph.D. coursework; teach undergraduate literature, rhetoric, and composition classes; and score college-placement essays.
At UT, Martinez led writing workshops and guided students with their graduate and professional school applications. From her experience as a writing consultant, Martinez recognized that the demand for qualified help with admissions statements exceeded the availability and affordability of said help. That’s why Martinez founded EssayMD in 2005. A pioneer in online admissions consulting, Martinez developed our signature editing process that puts clients first and keeps costs low. Happy clients have helped us ensure that we don't need the fanciest website or slick advertising.
Over EssayMD's sixteen years, many of our competitors have come and gone. And we've changed too. We moved from Central Texas to Houston. We've expanded our editing services to help clients in all phases of their professional journeys and every imaginable health profession and specialty. We've celebrated the successes of applicants from all walks of life: stay-at-home moms returning to medical school, IMGs making their ERAS match, refugees taking night classes to meet med school prerequisites, military veterans embarking on a civilian career, high schoolers looking to join accelerated programs.
Martinez relishes the evolving and personal nature of this business. Every application cycle is unique. Each of our clients has a story to tell. It is our job to help them make the most of that story...without charging an arm and a leg. That's why Martinez has remained the guiding force of EssayMD, and why she still treats each client like her only client.
Let EssayMD help you discover and articulate your strengths and stand out from the crowd. Our objective always has been, and always will be, to help our clients maximize their potential!
