Get out of waitlist limbo!
Your feedback – though hard to hear at times – was very helpful. I used your feedback to totally re-work my resume, and I used your comments on my essay to similarly improve the level of detail I gave in my next essays.”
BSer who got in to their Round 2 school!
Learn what you can do to tip the scales in your favor.
And, learn what not to do — there are surefire ways to get declined from the waitlist and you don’t want to make one of those mistakes!
Being waitlisted sometimes seems worse than being rejected!! You’re caught up in an endless cycle of “if-only…” Was it the GMAT score? Was it the recs? Were your essays not good enough? If only you’d done this differently, or that… It can drive you nuts.
Find out definitively what went sideways on your application to bschool. Learn from a trusted source where your application fell short. How was it almost good enough but not quite — and learn what you can do to tip the scales back in your favor during this time while you’re in limbo.
The EssaySnark Waitlist Assist will help you develop a strategy to increase your chances of an offer from your school. Here's what you get:
- Access to a web-only version of the EssaySnark Guide to Getting Off the Waitlist (sorry, no refunds or discounts if you already bought it).
- An Application Assessment from EssaySnark
- Feedback on the waitlist strategy that you develop
- Feedback on one letter written to the adcom in support of your candidacy
- 60 days membership to the EssaySnark blahg
Then, you will develop your waitlist strategy and submit it (a brief one!) to EssaySnark for review. You can also get feedback on an (also brief!) letter to the adcom. Each submission must be no more than 500 words - less is preferred. You get one round of feedback on these items. If another review is desired, or you need feedback on other materials or ideas, you may do so at an additional fee.
The waitlist strategy you develop needs to be very school-specific, since every adcom has different policies and preferences for how they manage the waitlist. Enlist EssaySnark as your coach and ally through this crucial period and see if you can turn this opportunity into an outright success!
Standard turnaround on all submissions.

TERMS: Post-Mortem & Waitlist Assist Application AssessmentsYour written report will be available within 3 business days after submission of materials. We try to deliver them faster than that but cannot guarantee quicker turnaround (you can have it expedited at an additional fee).
This review does not include any Essay Decimator critiques, resume reviews or anything else beyond the assessment of the materials submitted in your previous school application. The essay assessments provided are detailed in terms of identifying if the essays worked or not and if not, specific reasons why, but they are not the full-blown critiques and they do not include any marked-up drafts as you would get in our other review products. In other words, we will comment on strengths and weaknesses in all those materials but this review is not the same as the Essay Decimator and other services provided for pending bschool applications. The Application Assessment for the Waitlist Assist package includes suggestions for what you might be able to do to redeem yourself, if anything, based on which school it is and what the errors or gaps were in the application.
If you need to cancel this service, you are entitled to a refund less $100 provided that no materials have yet been submitted for review.

If either is obscenely overlimit (more than 550 words) then an additional fee will apply.

I would recommend EssaySnark to every waitlisted candidate! I was waitlisted by one of HSW in R1 this year with help from 4 alums and a consultant. I reached out to EssaySnark hoping to get a different opinion for my waitlist strategy and was completely blown off by the quality of feedback I got:
1) The waitlist analysis report was 20 pages - extremely in-depth and full of insights even my alum friends didn't know
2) EssaySnark has such magical communication skills that they make you feel powerful while not holding punches. This is super important for applicants because I stopped reaching out to the consultant I was working with because his feedback always made me feel stupid and small.
3) Unlike consultants who charge you for asking follow-up questions, EssaySnark patiently answered all mine AND in great length/quality. EssaySnark's dedication to high quality of work and ensure the BSer gets what we need is just rare.
Finally, I have to say EssaySnark has been spot on about pretty much everything, from application outcome to expected reaction from adcom, etc.
In all, I couldn't be more grateful for EssaySnark's help!
You continue to blow me away with your commitment to us BSers! Thanks again for everything. It's been great to have someone in my corner, especially when my family and friends don't really "get" what I'm trying to do.
