from July 2020 announcing this program.
Are you a person of a racial or ethnic background which is underrepresented in business and academia? Does the shorthand “BIPOC” apply to you?
EssaySnark is offering a Comprehensive Profile Review at no cost to African-Americans, Blacks, Hispanics, LatinX, Native Americans, Native Hawaiians, Native Alaskans, and members of other indigenous groups who are interested in applying for an MBA.
We’ve written before about the so-called “diversity” at top business schools.
We want to be more active in working towards solutions to that, even in this small way, in our small corner of the world called Snarkville.
How to qualify
You decide if you qualify.
This is intended for Americans, however we’re open to requests from those of other nationalities, since systemic racism exists everywhere.
If you self-identify in one of these categories and you think this would be helpful, we’d like to hear from you! EssaySnark is not doing any type of screening or requiring any sort of proof. Just email us at gethelpnow at essaysnark.com with your request, and we’ll set you up with how to get started.
There are no income limits, or papers to submit, or hurdles for you to jump through. You don’t have to prove anything. It’s meant for those who feel it would be beneficial.
The one limitation we have is on our time. If we get a high volume of these requests, we may have to curtail the opportunity somehow — but that would be a glorious problem to have, and we’re grapple with it if it occurs.
We’ve long offered pro bono services to military members and veterans, and we still want to support our service men and women. This BIPOC program represents a change in our focus, to follow the heart and do what we feel to be right.
No strings attached. This offer is not conditional on anything. We don’t expect you to buy stuff from us as a result. It’s only meant as a small gesture, recognizing that the playing field is not even and the deck has been stacked from the beginning, and that those who hold power and privilege — like EssaySnark — are the ones who need to change in order for the system to be different.
Oh wait: One request we do have for those who get the Profile Review done: Please think of us when you get accepted! We live for those emails saying “I got in!!!” Would love to get one from you later this season.
