We got some questions about how the EssaySnark services work and we thought we’d share the answers with you today.
1) “Is the Essay Decimator (“One Essay Decimator two-stage essay critique”) that’s included in the Complete Essay Package the exact same thing as the Essay Decimator offered by itself?”
Yes. The Essay Decimator service is the same regardless of how it is purchased. The Complete Essay Package is a bundle of the most important services designed to get you from start to finish on one set of essays, and so naturally it includes the Essay Decimator.
2) “If I first purchase the the Comprehensive Profile Review, but then decide to purchase the Complete Essay Package, will I be able to get some sort of discount or refund because the Comprehensive Review is already included in the plan?”
Yes, you can upgrade to the Complete Essay Package (or the 4-School Set) after starting with the Comprehensive Profile Review – but it’s cheapest to begin with the largest purchase first. Our packages offer the greatest discounts.
Beyond that, we do not provide any rebates or refunds for later purchases. Our prices are already ridiculously low, and the Complete Essay Package (and 4-School Set) is a significant discount over the cost of the items purchased separately. You can see our purchase terms and refund policies on the individual product pages at purchase.
3) “If you were to list all your services in a suggested order that they should be done in, what it be?”
It be this:
It’s always helpful for anyone to begin with the Comprehensive Profile Review (or Post-Mortem ding analysis / Waitlist Assist if that applies).
If you’re interested in the bundle of the Complete Essay Package, then you would go through those steps in this order:
a. Comprehensive Profile Review
b. Career Goals App Accelerator
c. Accomplishments & Achievements App Accelerator
d. Essay Ideas App Accelerator
e. Essay Decimator first drafts
f. Essay Decimator revised drafts
If someone has a low GPA then they would want to complete the Transcripts & Grades App Accelerator at an early stage, in order to develop a strategy. If needed, the Letters of Recommendation App Accelerator should be completed around the time of the Essay Ideas App Accelerator. The Reworking Your Resume App Accelerator is best completed towards the end, usually after the first draft Essay Decimator step. The Interview Prep assistance should be done after the essays are complete.
We also recommend that the resume be reworked after essays are done. This is because you need to develop your platform or “theme” and then make sure it’s reflected by the individual components of your application. If you do your resume first, you’ll be flying blind and you’ll likely need to go back over it again later, to make sure it’s a proper support to the rest of the pitch.
