From time to time we get someone asking about whether we’d be writing SnarkStrategies Guides for other schools. The answer is yes, but we need to be strategic about which schools we do them for – both in terms of which schools will be valuable to a broad enough set of Brave Supplicants to benefit from, and just as important, which ones we know enough about to offer real value.
As an example, we’d love to do a SnarkStrategies Guide for the Ivey School in Canada, because we happen to think they’re a great program. But we hardly ever get anyone asking about them, and we have helped only a handful of BSers with their apps for this school. So that one doesn’t make much sense, unfortunately.
Just as an aside: We don’t even recoup our costs on the SnarkStrategies Guides. Those are developed purely as a service to you folks, so you can hopefully be more self-sufficient in your own process of developing your pitch.
Well, that’s not entirely true. We originally started writing those essay guides in the hopes that the drafts that were submitted over to us for review wouldn’t be so painfully horrible. That hasn’t entirely worked out as we’d wished, but we’re not giving up!
If you’ve got a hankering for a specific school to be covered in an essay guide, feel free to leave a comment on this post and we’ll consider it.
