Working with Poonam was not only extremely helpful but also very enjoyable. Thank you.

I am accepted by my dream school–IESE. It was a genuine pleasure having the opportunity to work with you, well worth the investment I made.

Your guidelines made me rewrite one of the stories and I truly think that the changed story will strengthen my candidacy. You helped me a great deal with the structure and framework of my essays. I remember that during our initial conversation you said that my essays were good but we needed to make them perfect. I am extremely happy with the final product and, just as you had said, the essays turned out perfect. You edited the essays to the allowed word-limit perfectly, and your editing was just perfect in the areas of grammar, punctuation and word choice. You let me know ahead of time of your travelling plans, it barely impacted the turnaround time and I am very grateful. It was a genuine pleasure having the opportunity to work with you, well worth the investment I made. Thank you!

The best part of the service is that she gives insightful inputs on every aspect of the essay, from storyline, content, effectiveness, wording, grammar and punctuation. At the end I found that I was able to find my voice on the essays and the message I wanted to convey was very effectively transmitted.

I did not find any weak skills during the time we worked together, the one thing I would mention to anyone who is considering the service is that please bear in mind that she expects you to be as professional as she is. Be prepared to dedicate time and effort because she will help you with ideas and provide very helpful feedback, but it will be up to you to put in the time and effort to transform your essays.

I would definitely recommend the service to others. Throughout the entire process she was very professional and timelines were followed rigorously.

Poonam, you did an amazing job reviewing and refining my essays. I am accepted by HAAS.

The questions you raised during our phone conversation and your comments on my drafts greatly helped me to think with respect to the expectations of a reader. When I look at the first draft and the final version, I could see how the stories have gradually but surely evolved.

You helped me identify the content that was not adding value to the essay but just increasing the word count, fill the gaps in my stories by asking right questions and ensured smooth flow of information all thru the end. Your knowledge of what B-schools look for aided me in concluding the essay with a striking note. As the author of the essays, I wouldn’t have caught most of these pitfalls without your help. The length of the essays was one thing I was worried about since the day one I started writing the essays. You alleviated my worries and encouraged me to develop the content first and think about the length later. It was amazing to see how you rephrased my sentences again and again, and was able to squeeze the content down to the allowed word limit.


Overall, I was very happy with your service. You are very professional. Your turn around time was excellent and was always within the agreed deadline. It was almost like you were working only on my essays. Thanks so much for your help.

Thanks you for your help, Poonam. I am going to start my MBA journey at RSM in a few days.

Your suggestions gave me an understanding of how the application is going to be reviewed and what impact the content of my application is going to have. It was a great help.

The comments on the language used in the essays and the formatting helped me to improve the effect that I would want my application to have on the Admission council. Also, I liked your service for the fact that you always stuck to the agreed time of 24-48 hours and urged me to do the same. I really appreciate your editing my recommendation letter twice instead of once as is stated in your agreement. …

SMU
With your help, I got accepted into SMU. Your services were great!

Poonam first understood who I was, reviewed my drafts, provided guidance on who and what the readers would be looking for. With the information on my background, she was able to hone what strengths I should focus on. Poonam made sure I stuck to the question being asked and responded to that. She was able to draw out of me what where the important points to incorporate in the essay. Then, she told me what the outline should look like. She not only did an excellent job in making sure I adhered within the word limit, but also made sure all the key points were still there. She found grammar errors that I didn't in writing my essays. I was under extreme turnaround times. Poonam clearly articulated when I was to send my essays, and when she would respond back to me.

I would highly recommend Poonam to work with you on developing your essays and editing

When working with her, I felt that essay review is not just business to her, but it is her passion. That's why she is in this profession.

Poonam will treat you like a friend and help you to submit the best essay. I wrote all my essays without any structure, and I didn't follow chronological order. She helped me to write my essays like a movie story.

Poonam helped me to choose the right content for the given question. Poonam's suggestions helped me to submit the best essay from my side to university. She trimmed down the length of my essays as effective as possible. 1600 is the word limit for my essays and we got 1593 words as the final word count. Her sentence structure is as effective as possible to communicate my thoughts as easy as reading a story. She is master of grammar rules and would not miss even a punctuation mark.

Poonam is not only fast in editing, but she also brings out the best possible essay. We will get the response within 24 hours. The thing is we need to be ready to send our next draft.

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 love the way my essays have turned out.

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.
