Essaysnark Review Sites

We’re honored that so many Brave Supplicants have said so many kind things about us! And even more, we’re thrilled that so many of you have GOTTEN IN! Always exciting to hear about your successes. Here’s what some people have said over the years:

From Round 1 2015 – written back to us when we issued a heartfelt “CONGRATULATIONS!!” on news of their admits:

Thanks for the kind words! Your advice and prespective on essay-writing and the broader application process was invaluable. Last year when I was waitlisted/deferred at Wharton and Columbia (and eventually denied), I had paid big bucks for the services of a well-known admissions consultant firm, who, while I’m definitely not in the blame game, led me down a path that resulted in horrendous essays. Through your strategy guides, essay review/ding analysis, and blog posts, I learned how to write significantly improved essays for a fraction of the money and time I spent on last year’s essays. EssaySnark was able to get through my head: 1) write like a lawyer, not an aspiring Hemingway 2) present realistic, honest (i.e. most likely un-glamorous) career goals instead of the pie-in-sky/change the world goals that many applicants, including myself, are told to and feel compelled to write. Finally, EssaySnark’s refusal to make material content recommendations (as opposed to my last consultant) ensured that my goals and stories were 100% me, which I think was inextricably important in putting together a strong application.

Keep up the good work and thanks for all the help, I recommend the services to friends applying to school.

 
 

From Round 1 2014:

I wanted to touch base and let you know how things ended up for me. I was waitlisted at [Great School], and accepted at [Very Good School] and [Another Very Good School]. I wanted to say thanks for all the help and guidance from you and your team, and to let you know that the free services that you supplied me as a military vet were a huge help to me in making this journey. My only regret is not finding your website sooner! I’m really happy with my outcomes and I think no matter which of the schools I choose I think I’ll be really happy.


2014 admissions season:

Thanks for a great service -I subscribed [to the blahg] for 4 months, along with purchasing a couple of the strategy guides, and it was a huge help during applications (and afterwards). I was fortunate to get into Kellogg, Fuqua, Anderson and Kenan-Flagler (perfect 4 for 4!), some with $$, so I have a tough decision ahead!


2013 admissions season:

Thanks for the feedback. I love you guys (or gals). I wish I had found you before I went with another consultant but your blog still helped quite a bit. I know there is a blurry line in consulting between helping and doing-it-for-you. I think you guys walk the line well, giving great support without taking away from the applicant. So, of course, I am telling all the Round 2-ers and friends who are applying next year to thoroughly check you out.

Keep doing your thang.

 


Hey ‘Snark,

Got into (top school)!! Come on!

I am really grateful to you for all the support, encouragement and advice that you provided to me. You really helped me in improving my pitch which I think made the difference in the end.

Without your support I doubt if I would have got an interview call let alone an admit. You guys are great!


I am very very happy to inform you that I got the call from (great school) last Friday and I´m in!!! I still feel like floating, it´s been an amazing weekend and … well, you know how people feel at this point very well 🙂

Although I did not use the decimator service for this one, the (great school) Guide was a wonderful tool to work my app, so somehow I partly owe it to you. Thank you!


Thank you EssaySnark. I have decided to join ISB. Your blog and the school guides / interview guide that I purchased were very helpful and even fun to read. Thanks for bring some fun into the stressful journey of applying to business school.


First, I’d like to let you know that so far I’ve found your App Accelerators to be very useful (and affordable – you are the first Bschool application resource I’ve found that doesn’t seem to be solely focused on bleeding money out of prospects). I’m eagerly anticipating your feedback on two accelerators right now.


Thanks! I really appreciate the feedback you provided and only wish I had stumbled upon this site sooner in the application process. Very excited for (favorite school) though. I will definitely recommend you to friends applying to business school in the future. Happy New Year!

April 2013 We’ve had some very happy STBBS sending us notes recently!

“You must be hearing this quite a lot by now, but from the bottom of my heart and on behalf of my family too, THANK YOU SOOOOO VERY MUCH, YOU ARE WORTH YOUR WEIGHT IN GOLD.”

“Essaysnark is awesome ! Thanks for helping me throughout the process.”

“I owe you a huge debt. I really cannot thank you enough, it would not have been possible for you.”

“The site is helpful and straightforward. I had an out of range GMAT, but my essays really pulled me through. The tips I learned from this site helped tremendously.”

“Thanks for all the help, EssaySnark. Your comments/insights throughout the process were immensely helpful, and I wouldn’t have made it to [TOP SCHOOL] without you guys.”


Back in 2011 – 2012, we were on this site called evisors and you can check out the reviews posted there at the time(UPDATED: sorry we’re not doing service through evisors anymore but you can now purchase a one-off Private Consult if you’re in the market for that).
 

Here are some testimonials left for very kind Brave Supplicants who wanted to spread the word about their experience with us:

Here’s a write-up of the experience of one of our favorite successful Brave Supplicants with applying and the internal debate, and eventual acceptance of the Dark Side, about whether to use help from an admissions consultant (January 2012).

Apparently a Wall Street dude is now  fan, too (July 2012).

We also saw this unsolicited review of the SnarkStrategies Guides in April 2012. Other reviews can be found on Amazon and Smashwords where certain essay guides are sold.

And here’s a listing of all the reviews left on our various services – as you can see, we don’t censor them, we publish everyone’s comments unedited (and your mileage may vary – hopefully you’re the type of BSer who “gets” what we’re about and doesn’t snipe at us without, uh, like, reading the whole book before you leave feedback!!! – doh!): 
 
 
If you’ve got feedback about any aspect of EssaySnark’s products and services — paid or unpaid — positive or negative — feel free to leave a comment below! Separately: If you’re UNHAPPY with EssaySnark we do hope you’ll come to us DURING YOUR ENGAGEMENT and tell us what’s going on! We don’t censor these reviews but it would sure be nice to hear what’s going on when there’s still a chance for us to work through it with you.

 

There are of course many more reviews on the individual product pages and we invite you to check those out, too!
