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.
