An awful lot of Brave Supplicants have come through these parts since admissions season started heating up in August. We’ve heard from a bunch of them with happy news of interview invitations and even happier news of admissions (at Columbia, at least – they’re the only school that lets folks in early). And a few reports of mid-cycle rejections, which is always disappointing.
How about all you others?
If EssaySnark posted an essay review for you here on the blahg, we most definitely hope you’ll come out of the woodwork to tell us how it’s going for you. If you’re comfortable with doing so, we’d love it if you’d add a comment to the post where we reviewed your draft. Or, just drop us an update via email (essaysnark at gmail).* We’re tracking interview requests over there on the right — if you didn’t tell us about your invite yet, go ahead and check the appropriate boxes there. (If you did tell us, we took the liberty of logging it already.) It’s awesome to see how that counter has been ticking up every day.
If you had us do a private review, we’re even more curious. How are things turning out? Have you gotten the invitation?
What happens so often is we send over some comments on an essay or post answers to some Brave Supplicant’s questions here on the blahg… and then they go dark on us. They disappear into the wild and we never hear back from them again.
We typically assume that means that it didn’t pan out — usually, when people get the interview invite, they’re tickled to death — and when they get in, they’re jumpin’ for joy and spreadin’ the news.
But if you just forgot about this ol’ ‘Snark once the apps were in… well… we hope you’ll remember us now!
Tell us your news. Update us on your status. Where are you in your process? Any nibbles come through yet?
The reason we do this is to help you guys, and we want to celebrate (or — hopefully not — mourn) right along with ya. We care how things turn out!
Do tell! How’s it looking for you so far???? If you’re not interviewing, what are your plans for Round 2?
* C’mon, BSers, it’s the least you can do — you got a full review of your stuff FOR FREE! We dedicated at minimum a full hour of our snarky little lives to you in posting about your mess draft of an essay, don’t return the gesture with rudeness.
