In praise of Essay Snark

I have never started a thread praising an MBA admissions consulting service, but I'm going to make an exception here. So a few friends highly recommended this service called Essay Snark. They provide a lot of a la carte services which are pretty reasonably priced. I ended up paying $100 for their comprehensive profile review, and boy, was it comprehensive. After submitting a questionnaire, within 2 days, I received a 12-page PDF file that broke down my strengths and weaknesses and delved into an analysis of each. It was brutally honest, insightful, and on the point. A word of caution: it is only for the thick-skinned. They're not going to BS around, in hopes of making you feel better, so you can sign up for their services.

I HIGHLY recommend essay snark for anyone looking to apply to b-schools and need an objective assessment of where they stand.

hmmm looks like they'll need elite boutique restructuring advisers - will this create more dealflow for me if i'm on an EB restructuring team, and will that help my MBA chances?

I'll second Brady - I also got the comprehensive profile review. I found it very helpful in thinking about where/when to apply and how to present my story.

To acrew, Brady, or anyone else with Essay Snark experience - Would you recommend the comprehensive profile review to identify gaps/weaknesses a few years before applying? I'm looking to apply in 2-3 years. Not sure if this is best suited for those

I also recommend the relatively inexpensive college essay guides for those of you struggling with specific essays. They're like $16 each.

He was a young genius. This academic assignment attempts to evaluate and examine various aspects of a literary work. An essay that analyses a literary work looks at its language, point of view, imagery, and organization. The author's genuine intentions are uncovered through an analysis of these techniques.

Your analyses of the source material should be presented in a way that is more in-depth than a simple overview.
