Where are the Essays?
Your Andy Awesome student has access to all the essays for every college! In the My Colleges tab, select Essays to bring up the essay information on the highlighted college.
How do my Seniors get access to these essays?
Lookup the essays in your Andy Awesome account and share those with your students. You can copy and paste the essays into an email, or into the Discuss Tab for your student. If you have the College Guy enabled, he will still show up in the student’s Essay Tab.
Purchase a month-to-month Edswell subscription to access the essays in each Senior student account. This subscription also gives you access to Edswell’s document management and sharing features – keeping track of different versions of essays is simplified! When you purchase a subscription, you will be required to purchase for your entire Senior class. Since it is a month-to-month subscription (no contract) you can cancel at any time. Some advisors elect to keep their Seniors subscribed only through the College Application season.
Why did we make this change? And what does it cost?

A Few Tips:
- Andy Awesome must have a unique email address (not shared with your own) in order for Edswell to work correctly. Gmail will let you add an alias to your existing email address so you can still have Andy Awesome’s emails delivered to you (you can receive messages sent to firstname.lastname@example.org. For example, messages sent to email@example.com are delivered to firstname.lastname@example.org.)
- Your Junior class can be added to Edswell in early 2016!
