Brad Schiller

After graduating from MIT, I spent 4.5 years at McKinsey and 6 years as an independent consultant. I worked with every size of company – from the Fortune 100 to companies with fewer than 10 employees. My work touched every part of a company – from innovative business strategies to frontline operations. I started Prompt in 2014 and have personally worked one-on-one with hundreds of students to improve their writing skills while training hundreds of other Writing Coaches.

CEO and Founder

I started Prompt with two fellow MIT people, Jordan and John, to make people better writers. Our premise was simple – give everyone access to on-demand feedback on their writing from subject-knowledgable Writing Coaches. Our product was vastly different than a typical editor. We focused our feedback on how people could improve their thinking by providing actionable instruction on their content and structure as opposed to just sentence-level suggestions. Years later, I feel we’re just getting started. We’re already the largest provider of feedback on admissions essays in the world. We’re now supporting students, educators, and educational institutions on all types of student writing. Eventually, we’ll support professionals. Come and join us on our journey. You can learn more about working with Prompt as an educational institution or as a member of our team by going to or reaching out to me at I encourage you not to be shy. I know what email anxiety is like, and I promise I read every message by assuming the writer has the best intentions. It’s the optimist in me.
