Yeah, we did just do that.
It’s the Fourth of July and everybody’s in a party mood.
Maybe it’s gone to our head. The partying, and the heat. It’s summertime!
Which actually means you should be working on essays this weekend…
But the festivities have gotten the best of us. Because here we are, announcing a new 4-School Set – at an absolutely ridiculous price.
What is the 4-School Set, and why should you care?
Why, we’re so glad you asked!
The 4-School Set is where we cram together all the things you need to get it done. This is personalized essay development guidance from EssaySnark on 4 separate MBA applications. Not only is the price crazy, but there are a few other reasons why you might want to jump on this.
One: Get a buddy! We mentioned a few weeks ago this new thing we’re doing called the EssaySnark-as-Matchmaker Essay Writing Collaboration Partner Matching Program. It’s open to people who are in our full-process cycle called the Complete Essay Package. Well, today is one of the last days of the Round 1 season that you can get started on the Complete Essay Package and be eligible for the Matchmaker program. We expect that we’ll need to close that to new sign-ups rather soon. If you purchase the Complete Essay Package – or this new 4-School Set, which includes the Complete Essay Package for your first school – then you’ll be eligible for the matchmaker program.
Two: Get full support! And get motivated! AND GET STARTED! With the Complete Essay Package that’s included in this 4-School Set, you’ll go through a structured process with us on your first school, mapping out your career goals, identifying your best achievements, and setting the structure of your pitch. You will also be looking at recommender’s strategies and your resume, and if you need it, figuring out what to do about that not-great set of grades from college that you now regret more than you ever thought you would.
You’ll be studying essay guides (included) and devouring the premium content here on the blahg (included) and when it comes time to submit your materials, you’ll enjoy priority turnaround times (included). Once that first set of essays is polished up and pretty, you’ll start on the next school, by tackling the essay structure with the outlines step, and then moving into drafts and critique. You’ll do that two more times, for a total of four applications, all with EssaySnark’s guidance along the way. You get 120 days from purchase to complete all the pieces and parts that are included in this massive package of materials. Seriously, you get almost everything we’ve ever produced in this on discounted purchase.
And did we mention that it’s cheaper than what you would pay for one school from many others firms? LIKE, $1,000 CHEAPER. If you were to purchase these services from us individually – the Complete Essay Package, three more Essay Decimators, the resume, the books, etc etc etc, it would tab up to $4,668.
Yeah, we are crazy.
Three: THE DEADLINES ARE COMING, THE DEADLINES ARE COMING! Another thing that we need to call your attention to is that little box on the righthand subpanel of the home page of essaysnark.com – the one that says “UPCOMING DEADLINES” You’ll notice that 2017 HBS Round 1 is 35 months, 0 weeks ago.
Something is telling us that maybe it’s time to get started?!??
Four: Damn it’s cheap.
The pricing on the 4-School Set is currently this wowzer of amazing at $2,995. (That was introductory pricing in 2017; it’s gone up since then. Current price is $ 3699.00 -ES) That may change – scratch that, that WILL change, since prices always go up as we move closer to deadline. Prices on ALL of our products go up – at least the Essay Decimator pricing does, and so does the Complete Essay Package. That’s just because we want to reward / encourage you all to get started as early in the cycle as we can possibly convince you to do so, and our time gets very limited as we move through the process, with more and more desperate Brave Supplicants clamoring for help. So it’s a supply/demand thing, you see.
Five: Limited spots in Snarkville! Last year, we also came perilously close to pulling the plug on all new sign-ups; we got very close to max capacity in August. If you want to ensure that you’ll get a space in the EssaySnark review queue, then it makes sense to lock in on that with a sign-up sometime soon. We may need to pull the plug on the 4-School Set earlier than on some other services we offer, based on the big commitment that it will require from us. We take all of our engagements seriously, and we will be carving out a significant chunk of time in the next few months to devote to getting to know each Brave Supplicant who moves forward with the 4-School Set.
Many reasons to begin now.
And many reasons to party! It is Independence Day here in the States, after all. (That means that the team is off today, BTW; there may be delays in responding to any email messages sent in through this holiday weekend. Thanks for understanding.)
So EssaySnark is off to celebrate. Maybe some of you will chew on this and then decide to roll up your sleeves and dive in.
7/8/14 We’re getting a lot of questions about this deal which is great! We updated the FAQ to cover the 4-School Set over the weekend which may help you out (the FAQ is available by clicking the Help link at the top of the page).
7/2/17 It’s impossible to overstate the benefit of Priority Turnaround that 4-School Set subscribers receive. Your submissions get first attention in the crowded Review Queue.
