We haven’t done an essay critique in some time (and probably some of you Brave Supplicants gave up on us completely). Even though this one surely was submitted in Rd 1, we’re offering it up here in the hopes that our comments may be of benefit to the BSer who sent it over to us,…
So who the heck is EssaySnark, anyway?!
We're the snarky experts in MBA admissions!
Sometimes amused and often appalled by what candidates write in their MBA applications to top bschools, EssaySnark created this little blahg to share common mistakes. Learn from them and avoid making admissions directors laugh (or want to hurl) when they read your essays. If you are hoping to have your essay reviewed anonymously on the blahg for free, submit it for consideration.

Here's what others have said about this:
Excellent critique – really drills down to what the problems are here. I too have submitted an essay for a critique and hopefully the snark shall rip it apart (or not) here soon. Cheers!

good stuff as always. Essay Snark. Please don't forget about this blog during the 30 days. Not slighting the 30 days blog, it is a good idea but this blog is amazing and beneficial too!
I second 🙂
Uh — people? What does it look like we're doing? Sheesh! 🙂
