Especially appreciate the “Snarky Strategy” blurbs. Thanks!”

Here’s what one BSer sent us after submitting apps in Round 1 2014:
Your strategy guides are awesome; I was a bit skeptical at first because I had another company’s “strategy guides”–and they were literally useless. Just regurgitated information I could find on wikipedia or on the school’s website.
I think what really helped me, and something I would 100% tout to other candidates, is understanding through your strategy guides what each school is looking for. Once I realized that [school] was more concerned with [specific insights gained from guides] than anything else, it made it much easier to pitch my essay.
In retrospect, I was trying to pack too much into my “goals” essays with all my ‘sellability competencies’. All the different countries I’ve traveled to and worked in. My unique background. Etc. What ended up happening was the kitchen soup issue.
Thanks for your help; I may purchase a couple more essay reviews before the app season is over. And I’ll keep you posted.

Be careful about buying used copies on other sites; they are guaranteed to be OUT OF DATE.
All used paperbacks and ebook versions of school-specific guides that you may find for sale on the internet are **OLD VERSIONS** (for 2014 apps and even older).
EssaySnark’s school-specific application guides are only available online here at essaysnark.com. If you want to buy a Kindle version on Amazon, then please note that they are not the most recent versions (e.g., interviewing, reapplicant, waitlist, accepted student guides, etc.). If you’re buying a school-specific MBA essay guide in paperback from a reseller or private party, there is no chance that it covers the current admissions season! Only essaysnark.com has those versions available.
All sales for these online versions purchased here at essaysnark.com are final; you get instant access to an information product, thus no refunds are available.
