We used to get really freaked out when we saw people making silly mistakes in their applications to bschool. We’d jump up and down and get frantic. A little like this guy. (Note: That is not a picture of EssaySnark. That’s some other dude.)
Anyway, it used to upset us something fierce when Brave Supplicants were stepping in it in their attempts to get into a good school. And so we decided to do something.
(Oh right. We’re admissions consultants. It’s what we do. Help people get in, that sort of thing.)
Back in September 2009, when we’d been at it awhile, we got so tizzied-up that we started this little blahg, in order to
vent about the ridiculous things our clients said in their drafts help people not do stupid sh!t in their apps.
If you’re applying to business school, EssaySnark’s purpose in life is to show you a way out of the darkness.
Others have made plenty of silly mistakes on their journey to MBA admissions — so much so, that you don’t have to. You just have to spend some time doing your homework.
We give you plenty of homework around here. Homework that makes you happy. Homework that can (hopefully!) help you get into the school of your dreams. We’ve since gotten a little more ambitious. We want to even the playing field so that everyone has a chance of getting into bschool, regardless of resources. Thus we’ve got a gazillion articles already published here on the blahg to help you figure out your strategy. We do essay reviews that are published here for free from time to time (submit yours if you’re up for it!).
And we now have a bunch of self-guided tutorials called App Accelerators and a gazillion MBA essay application guides and a focused tools+advice package called The Complete Essay Package and interview prep and waitlist support and just about everything else you can think of needing in your quest for the MBA.
If you want to learn more about us, you can see our philosophy on MBA admissions consulting (we’re big on ethics), and you can even get some tips for engaging EssaySnark if you’re brave enough to take that step. And oh yeah, we’re not the ‘Snark for everybody. This world is about doing the work – and you need to be open-minded and receptive to change, ‘cuz you’re gonna need to.
Happily, we don’t often look like Freaked-Out Snark up there anymore. Hopefully the stuff we’ve got laying around here can help you avoid looking like him, too. Good luck with your apps, Brave Supplicant! We wish you godspeed on your way to bschool success.
