Or more importantly: Are you only now getting yourself together for your first applications?
If so, you’re in luck – we have an awesome support plan to help you get from zero to finished! It’s called the MBA Countdown and it’s a set of targeted emails, one a week, that guides you towards what to focus on and when, from now through the Round 2 deadlines in early January.
“January?” you may be thinking. “That’s ages away! Why would I worry about Round 2 apps now?”
As many Brave Supplicants can now attest: Time moves quickly when deadlines are involved – stealthily so, in fact. And you can never start too early.
If you managed to get some Round 1 apps in but now you’re feeling nervous on how they may turn out, maybe because you kind of rushed through stuff at the last minute and don’t feel like you had a handle on how to do things, then this is a great option for you, too.
Get on board with The Countdown and get access to a guided tour through the complexity of your MBA applications – delivered once a week in bite-sized chunks. Our years of experience is distilled down into these weekly emails that will motivate you, and keep you focused. Read up on how the Round 2 Countdown works or sign up for it here. It includes a free membership to the EssaySnark blahg and a project plan in Trello for app organization fun.
The Countdown has a slow start over the next week or so; anyone signing up in the quasi-near future will be able to easily catch up. It builds gradually, to let you either recover from the craziness of the Round 1 chaos, and/or get your feet wet on all that’s required to build out your strategy, with a slow, measured pace. You won’t get overwhelmed, and you won’t experience that deer-in-headlights feeling when you don’t know where to start. Instead, you get EssaySnark as tour guide, making it all simple and totally manageable.
Of course, if you already got some Round 1 apps in, we hope those pan out for you, and that you have no more essays in your future!!!!
But there are plenty of people who have only found us recently, and others who were never shooting for Round 1 in the first place, so this might be a good option for all of you.
Good luck to everyone! And have a good weekend. We will still be around, supporting the Columbia/Ross/Darden/LBS/NYU types… Everyone else whose apps are in, have fun and enjoy your essay-freedom! For the rest of you, you’ll get there soon too!
Here's what others have said about this:
Good luck to all starting out! I finally had a decent night’s sleep last night, so… Start early! 🙂
Congrats for getting all your apps in, Gulliver!!! Good luck to you – we hope it works out!
