SUCCESS STORIES

I worked with Poonam on my essays for Kellogg and Booth and I was accepted into both. I couldn’t have asked for more.

Poonam’s suggestions and comments played a very important role in shaping my essays. I was not conscious that I was not communicating certain qualities through the essays until I got her feedback. Her editing definitely helped to improve the flow of the essays. The structure and framework was well defined and easy to follow. She is skilled at pruning the essays to the allowed word-limit; she proved that in many of my essays. The key is to be able to trim the words without losing the message, which was achieved. The edited content was grammatically accurate, the choice of words was apt, and the sentence structure was simplified to keep the flow and make it more readable. The turnaround time was very good. Most of the edits were turned around in less than 24 hours.

I was very happy with Poonam’s service. The service suited me well, because she truly stuck to the task of editing the essay and not rewriting it, which many of the other competing essay editing services do. Keeping the content original and just refining the structure and grammar helps to keep the identity of the essay.

Sriram- (2014 applicant, accepted into both Kellogg and Booth)
Essay Review Service- Admitted to Kellogg and Haas!

My husband a Kellogg grad had previously used Poonam's essay review service with success and on his recommendation I decided to also work with Poonam on my essays.

Poonam is extremely organized, professional and knows what this is about. I'm a new mom and Poonam was quite accommodating to my schedule and my limitations. At the same time, she was forceful enough and pushed me to complete the essays within certain deadlines. The best thing about Poonam's service is that she does not "make up" stuff for you. She is highly ethical and helps you write "your" story beautifully, but it is still "yours".

The process was also highly efficient: Poonam sets up an initial call to understand your background and professional history, and then worked via e-mails on the essay drafts. I liked that Poonam made an effort to get to know my background, rather than slot me into a particular profile.

Poonam makes this quite clear, but just wanted to say that this is the right service for you, if you are willing to put in the work. Poonam will not generate the content for you, which is what I liked about her.

Poonam was highly supportive and offered some great insight even though I didn't sign up for the admissions package. I got into both schools I applied to- Kellogg and Berkeley Haas. Thank you Poonam for all your hard work, support and encouragement and sorry about driving you a little mad with my tardiness in keeping to a schedule.

Paru- 2016 applicant, admitted to Kellogg and Haas.
I really appreciate your work efficiency; it is an important lesson for me to learn. A role Model in this aspect.

I decided to sign up for your essay review services after reading your blogs. I believed that you were not only an expert in editing, but also have expertise in the APPLICATION of B- School. With your guidelines, I observed that the both stories I firstly chose might be conflicted with each other, making each other less convincing. This was a key point in the correction. You helped me to connect the link between my passion, my past and current achievements, the MBA and Post MBA Goals, making them more systematical rather than fragmented.

You downsized my stories so quickly and so effectively that I was impressed. I really appreciate your work efficiency; it is an important lesson for me to learn. A role Model in this aspect. Thank you so much. Your work attitude, your principle of time management really encouraged me. I often forgot that you are a grandma, because you are still hard-working, helping students to attend their dream-schools.

Hanna - 2014 applicant, accepted into St Allen University
I am accepted by the MBA @UNC. I began my classes last month and am really enjoying it!

I found Poonam on the web and checked out her sample essays. I typed grad school sample essays online and sample essays on myEssayReview were the first ones that showed up. It was very kind of her to show on website how the applicants should structure their essays. The sample essays made me decide to use Poonam's service. I read one sample and found it very structured and easy to read.

Communication is the key to understand a candidate. The one hour initial skype call met my expectation and helped me think as a writer. Poonam patiently listened to my story to understand my background. She was very quick to response and always in a professional manner. It was very easy to understand her note. She was willing to listen to my feedback and edit until we both were satisfied. I knew there was a problem with my essays but couldn’t figure out quite right. Poonam’s suggestions guided me through my thinking process and helped me with the flow of my essay. Her suggestion of presenting my story in chorological order worked very well.

Despite the fact that we had only five days to meet the deadline, and she was travelling, Poonam really pushed me to finish the application before my deadline. My overall experience of working with her was great. Thank you Poonam for helping me to get into an MBA program ! Best of luck!

Poonam is a thorough professional and goes extra mile to ensure that she brings best in each of the essays.

Your guidelines/ suggestions helped me in my essays in limiting the word counts for each section of the essay answer and have balanced coverage of each sub-question, in diving deeper to find hobbies (interest in travel & being a family man) for background essay, and deleting professional content from background essay.

You suggestions on essay structure and sequencing helped me in bringing the right content on the top, clubbing the related content and reducing some details to bring the essay within word count limit without compromising on overall quality and coverage, and moving around content to right place in the essays and sequencing it better to make the story flow natural and chronological.

Your edits were done very well to bring the essays within word limit without losing any impact of original content. Some least impactful examples or superfluous content were cut making essay content more sharp.

Turnaround was always with stipulated timeline and in later cases much earlier. Even when Poonam was not completely well, she turned around her edits/ critiques within stipulated timelines.

Poonam is a thorough professional and goes extra mile to ensure that she brings best in each of the essays .She did not stop with her initial inputs but kept probing to get additional personal stories for my background essays.

A.G. - 2013 applicant-accepted into Wharton EMBA program
Apart from essay writing, I have learned many things from her such as punctuality, following the schedule, loving own work etc.

After I was done with my GMAT, I spent at least 100 hours reading the reviews of various admission consultant services. I finally decided to sign up for a multiple schools package with Poonam because she is an AIGAC certified consultant whereas most of the other consultants are not. Pricing is also very reasonable compared to the other consultant firms. Most importantly, her success rate is on the higher side.

Initially, we both had telephonic and skype calls to brainstorm stories for essays (goals, accomplishments, background, mistake, setback culture shock, etc.), so that we would be ready for the right content when the schools would release essay questions. She sent me a framework/outline for every single essay we worked on that helped me put together my first drafts. With each edit she sent me, the essays kept getting better and better, and I was able to submit my best essays for every school. The essays always carried the right content to the essay prompts. Her guidelines and suggestions not only helped me choose the right content but also helped me find my own voice. I was glad that she never compromised on the content to get the allowed word-limit. The sentence structure was excellent and apt to the content. She always provided better words to showcase the content of my essays. Her editing was so perfect that she never even missed a punctuation mark: comma, semicolon, and colon etc. She perfectly followed the turn-around time (24-48 hours) and followed the best practice by informing me about her schedule in advance.

Poonam’s kindness and her dedication to work are exemplary. For one of my schools, I was just about to submit the application when I found out that it needed one extra essay about which I didn’t know earlier. It was a shocker for me because I had only 2 days left before the deadline. At that time, Poonam was about to board a flight to go on a one week vacation as per the schedule she had already informed me weeks in advance. Even during that crunch situation, she had sent me the edited essay from the airport because of which I was able to submit the application on time. This speaks a ton about her dedication towards her work and her concern for her students. 

I am very thankful to Poonam as I got admitted to my dream school. I had a wonderful journey with her throughout my application process. Apart from essay writing, I have learned many things from her such as punctuality, following the schedule, loving own work etc. I will implement these qualities in my daily life and strive to become a better person.

I recommend Poonam to everyone who is very much willingly to have a bright future and an MBA admission.

I love the way my essays have turned out.

You helped me understand the questions! And you also happily cleared the questions I had on essays. You gave me leads to write more. I wrote a lot of stuff which was not very clear to a different eye. You pointed these issues out immediately and told how distorted meaning actually was. I was very happy with your feedback.

Honestly, I wrote my essays at mid-night after busy day at work. I didn’t put in effort on grammar and language. All I wrote in the essays was how I actually feel about the school and myself. You turned around the plain essays, which had no impact what so ever, into professional looking and structured essays, without missing my story. I was writing in bullet points. You helped expand these points and put them in essays. I think by third essay I got a hang of writing stories and was able to deliver more than word count limit which you trimmed down well, without losing the content. I know my raw essay was not in good grammar, but you helped me with grammar. You reverted to me with critiques/edits and re-edits within 24 to 48 hours, as stipulated on your website which made me also to send you drafts on time. I’m person who works with deadlines so it worked for me. I like the way my essays have turned out.

Nikita- 2014- applicant LBS
I got an interview call from IESE within a week :)

The guidelines were extremely helpful especially when choosing the stories for one of my essays where I had the option of choosing a college leadership experience or a professional experience. You clearly delineated how the professional experience would add more value to the application and also helped frame the flow of the essay which made the product/output much more relevant.

In all my essays, whether it be goals or accomplishment, your guidelines and step-by-step structured approach was extremely helpful. The detailed framework you provided me ensured that I just had to answer the questions in that format and my essay was almost 50% done. This was extremely beneficial and helped reduce the amount of time I had worked on these essays for other (earlier) schools by myself.

Though my essays were always out-of-limit, you made sure to edit them down to the required word limit. You conversed with me multiple times to make sure that the essence of the ideas was intact and not hampered.

Turn-around-time for the edits was perfect and was much before 24 hours in most of the cases. You made sure that even if I sent it any time of her day she returned it with her edit within 24 hours. This was extremely helpful for me as I was tied down with other deadlines and interviews and had to start work on the essays only in the last week before the deadline.

Saaim Khan- 2013 R-2 Applicant, Interviewed by IESE
I worked with Poonam on two schools, Emory and Georgia Tech, and I am accepted by both with scholarship.

For almost every single essay, especially the Emory's leadership/contributions essay, Poonam continuously pushed me for content, examples, and helped me rework the whole entire thing. Your help was absolutely essential in helping me answer the correct questions, making sure the essays are the best they can be, and I feel that you were able to help me set myself apart from other candidates.

Every time I sent a draft of a new essay, I looked forward to your first read-through and edit to show me a better way to approach the question. More than once, I ended up rewriting the essay entirely in order to better tell a story. More importantly, she helped me understand how to properly construct an essay to help highlight my best qualities to the Ad Com. I was very impressed when you were able to trim all of the Emory essays down to word limit, especially the leadership/contributions essay. She trimmed it down from 500 something words to 300 while keeping almost all of the content that we had. Her editing was excellent in all the areas: word choice and punctuation. All the sentences were short and concise. She fixed a lot of my grammatical mistakes, even the minor ones that I did not realize were wrong. She got back within 24 to 48 hours, for every single one of your edits/critiques. We did 7 essays together, 3 - 4 edits for most of the essays, and I don't think you missed any of the turnaround times including weekends.

Thank you so much for working with me and helping me with all the admission essays. Without her help I would have done a horrible job with pretty much all of them. I highly recommend her to anyone who is looking to apply to business schools and will be sure to refer her to any of my friends who are looking to enter MBA programs.

Thank you for helping me secure 50% fellowship!

Poonam helped me differentiate my profile from that of a typical IT applicant. This helped me get admitted and secure a scholarship even though I applied in the last round. I'm extremely happy with Poonam's edits and her detailed comments/ guidelines that helped me in distinguishing myself. I especially liked the framework she provided me for gathering/ organizing my ideas for essays. She was extremely prompt in turning around edits which helped me submit my application on time.
