Margie Walker, The Accidental College Application Coach, has a Master’s Degree in Education and a career in copywriting and marketing. These experiences were very helpful when she accidentally fell into coaching high school seniors through their college application process. It all started when her oldest son wrote the worst college essay she’d ever read.


She realized then that high school seniors are ill equipped for the creative task of writing engaging personal narrative essays. Drawing from her background of expertly crafting stories that sell, she morphed her skills to enable teens to create essays that wow admission officers.
