Each essay goes through two layers of screening and edits. Your essay gets assigned to a Graduate Coach. We try to assign it to a Coach who has worked in your industry and attended a school that you're applying to.
They review the story and overall narrative to make sure the achievements and leadership examples you describe are compelling and that the story flows well. The Coach's industry experience allows them to gauge if the experiences you’ve described can be written in a more compelling and cohesive manner.
They also evaluate the essay for grammar, readability, and punctuation. They also look at things such as sentence length and the use of active/passive voice. The feedback they provide helps you make sure your essay is error-free and easy to read.
Finally, each essay is reviewed by a second Graduate Coach. They do a final review to make sure it meets the expectation of the Admissions Committee of the school you’re applying to.
No, in addition to suggesting edits, we also provide feedback on your overall narrative and story. We will redline your document and leave comments. These redlines and comments are concrete, specific, and actionable. However, in keeping with the honor code of business schools, we will not make any changes to the actual essay. It is up to you to make those.
This service is for you if you’re confident that you have at least a solid first draft of your essay that is ready to be reviewed. If you’re struggling to create the first draft, you might want to consider our All-Inclusive Service.
One way to make sure your essay is ready to be reviewed is by getting a friend/parent/sibling to review the essay for following before submitting it to us:
We have found that it is way more productive both for you and us to do it over email. First off, it’s easy to provide feedback on grammar, tone, structure, and story via email. Everything is documented for your ease and you don’t need to take notes.
Also, It creates a realistic simulation of the actual process. When you submit your essay to the admissions committee, you won’t have the option of explaining your story over the phone.
Please mention any specific aspects of your essays that you’d like us to review when you check out.
The same team that helped you out with your previous service will work on this aspect of the application as well. A team gets ‘assigned’ to you after you’ve worked with us once. This ensures continuity.
