Here’s a dose of hope for all you struggling through this challenging phase – you have this to look forward to in a few short months!! Posted with permission.
And, here’s the history (as you can guess, there were some challenges in the profile):
The Target Schools that this BSer had prioritized when we did the Comprehensive Profile Review were:
EssaySnark’s assessment (after reviewing the whole profile) was that these were most likely:
1. McCombs and UNC comparable chances and best likelihood
2. Ross and UCLA comparable chances and also good likelihood
3. Not bullish on Berkeley but maybe
4. Not seeing Yale as an option 🙁
(We go into way more detail on explaining things but that’s the order of probability that we captured in this person’s review.)
So, if you’re looking for some advice on which schools to target BEFORE you target them — or, which schools you’ll need to work your butt off for if you’re truly serious about trying there — then our Comprehensive Profile Review can tell you! We’ve got a pretty strong track record of predicting these things based on, you know, a comprehensive review of the profile.
And, if you’re serious about going for a school that we place further down on the list, we really would suggest going for the whole Complete Essay Package or at minimum getting those essays decimated. This BSer did not use us for anything else and the outcomes speak to what this person pulled off independently (or possibly using some other consultant, no idea) — and it’s probably unfair to say this but if we were so good at predicting things upfront then maybe we also might be good at providing input into the development process to increase those chances along the way?
It’s always up to you to do the work, but having a coach behind you who knows what they’re doing is a wise move when the stakes are so high!
This BSer ended up at their #1 school (GoBlue!) so congratulations to them!! They set their sights and pulled it off and it’s thrilling to hear of such successes.
Regardless of which route you take or whether you use us or anyone else to help you get there, we wish you tremendous success of your own! We cannot wait to get many more “Merry Christmas EssaySnark!” emails from all of you in the very near future.
