“Accepted into MHA Program USC. Poonam was superb”
I want to start by mentioning that I was not an MBA applicant and I worked with Poonam for help with my essays for applying for an MHA (the admission says business school but I didn't apply for their MBA). I always thought of myself as a good writer because I usually write a lot, however, I was glad that I had Poonam's services to guide me and edit my work because the essays that I had written on my own before working with Poonam were not even close to as well structured and written as the essays Poonam helped me on. I want to mention that I got the two-essay package and Poonam helped edit my statement and scholarship essay for my main program. I was admitted to the program that I wanted and I'm sure the essays were a big factor in determining my admission. Overall, I enjoyed working with her and she was very understanding and more flexible than it says on her website. I was kind of late a few times getting my essays to her but she was always very helpful and on time. She was refreshing and honest compared to many of the other companies that I talked with and not mention affordable. With her help, I wrote an essay with a story that stood out and definitely got into a much better program than I thought I could. I had slightly over a 3.2 but my essays and extracurriculars definitely helped a lot.

“Accepted into Aalto University with 100% scholarship”
I first signed up only for Poonam’s resume review, but after working with her on my resume, I knew I could trust her with working on my three essays. I liked how I could choose individual services, and the pricing was very reasonable, and the plans were flexible. I read all the others’ testimonials and their experiences working with Poonam, and I got a good feeling that I could make a convincing essay that told my story well. With a low GMAT score, I knew I had to give my application an edge.
Poonam greatly cared about me as a person and an applicant and was able to extract the points that were effective in my essays. At times when my content was insufficient, she pushed me to think harder in my past and get the material out on text. It was precisely this kind of help that made my essays have a differentiating factor and a coherent story. Not only did her advice make the writing better, it also crystalized what I wanted to convey in the first place.
In addition to understanding me and my strengths, Poonam nicely picked up points in my story that I didn't think were so significant. She arranged them and crafted them elegantly without losing my original intent. I was truly satisfied with the final essays.
Although the deadlines for the schools that I was applying to were approaching fast, Poonam’s response time was SUPER fast and never late - I don’t know how she does it, but it was truly magical and assuring to have feedback on time when I was racing against the clock.
My overall experience of working with Poonam was GOLD STAR EXCELLENT. After her consultation and essay reviews, I got accepted from Aalto University with 100% full tuition scholarship, Illinois Institute of Technology with $45K scholarship, and also Central St. Martins. I chose to attend Aalto University. I would definitely recommend her services to anybody who needs and wants a consultant who puts in the time and care into your applications.

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 traveling 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 story-line, 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- I got accepted to Chicago Booth and LBS Dubai
I read your blog on one of the Essay Review sites (I think it was GMAT club) and read reviews of some of the candidates who had availed your services in the past. I decided to give this a try and after exchange of few introductory emails and a phone call, I decided to give it a try.
I was a bit nervous when I started the process. But your debrief session and essay pointers email was an excellent starting point. I appreciate your effort in guiding me and directing my thoughts to formulate my own stories and write them on a piece of paper for you to have a look. I must appreciate your guidance, patience and hard work as you took a lot of effort in understanding my unique position and then bringing my own stories to light. Your edits on my essays transformed my thoughts into a stellar story. Ask me about the turnarounds!!! A turnaround time of 12/18 hours at the beginning was shortened to few minutes by the time we reached the deadline to submit the application. I must say that throughout the process you satisfactorily addressed all of my queries/concerns. A big thank you for all your support.
Poonam – your critique/edits to my essays, helped me got accepted to Chicago Booth EMBA and LBS EMBA Dubai. I’m very happy, and I still can’t believe it! Thank you so much for all your help through the application process. Thank you for your involvement, for challenging me and pushing my thinking and for all the prompt replies during late nights, weekends and thanksgiving holiday. We applied to 2 universities in 10 days and I got admitted in both– WOW that’s amazing.
Your support is highly appreciated, and I will always be willing to recommend people in my circle to avail your services.

Accepted into MSU for Ph.D in Management Accounting with full scholarship and good stipend!
myEssayReview was suggested to me by Rajat Sadana of e-Gmat. I wanted to work with someone who understands an Indian applicant especially because my profile is quite different from other Indians’ profiles. Hence myEssayReview became an easier choice.
In the free consultation, Poonam suggested that I should discuss my passion for making the school education more reasoning- based on the current marks -oriented. She also suggested that I should write about ‘Raising a Mathematician’ that I had co-founded to develop research attitude in Math among school students. The half-hour call strengthened my conviction to share my teaching experience and my passion for education. I signed up for one school package, and we started working.
In the initial essay draft, I was more concerned about the number of words but realized from your comments and suggestions that I had not articulated my story because I was restricting myself due to word count. So in the next draft, I didn’t worry about the number of words. I was surprised to see that she downsized the essay from 890 words to 750 words without compromising on any key details of my story. There was a huge difference between the first draft and the final essay. The final essay has better clarity and brevity. She helped me build a strong resume that showcased my professional accomplishments, voluntary work, and other skills and interests effectively and succinctly. Her guidelines on the LORs were also spot on. Her turnarounds were less than 24 most of the time. In some cases, she reverted to me in a couple of hours. It was quickest near the deadline. I think the turnaround time was amazing considering the different time zone in which I was located.
Poonam is very professional and knows her work extremely well. The essay edits are very thoughtful and command over English makes a lot of difference to the essays. I am very happy to have selected myEssayReview for my application. I am happy to say that I have been accepted into Michigan State University for Ph.D. in Managerial Accounting with a full scholarship, a good stipend, and an additional scholarship of $ 4000 given to the best incoming student. Thanks, Poonam.

Thanks for helping me make my personal statement strong and appealing. I am accepted to Cornell-Queens EMBA.
It was a great experience working with Poonam on my essay at a critical time when lots of things were happening at the same time for me. I was impressed with my first interaction with her as she understood my situation and provides a customized approach to my needs.
Her guidance and professionalism throughout the review process was excellent. She gave me honest and clear feedback which helped me shape my final essay.
Poonam's guidance opened my thoughts and helped me focus on the key contents required to showcase my profile to the admission committee. She edited and summarized my lengthy personal statement into two pages as required by the school, making it easy for the reviewer to understand my knowledge and expertise gained over years. I would recommend myEssayReview to anyone who is looking for a personalized non-commercial and professional service.

Thanks Poonam! Owe it all to you.
I had availed Poonam's services for my application to the undergraduate programme at St Stephen's college last year. Later, in my first year, I decided that I wanted to apply to The University of Hong Kong's Economics programme. I didn't think twice before approaching her again for the second school. I just knew I had to get help from her for this.
And the result is here- I made the right choice!
I got an acceptance with scholarship from HKU last week. All the credit goes to her!
The best part about her services is the high level of professionalism, with an adequate blend of personal touch. She takes time to know the applicant's stories and perfectly combines them with the essays. This particular aspect showed me how passionate she is about her work.
I would give myessayreview a 5/5 and more, if I could! Thank you, Poonam. I couldn’t have done it without your help.

Thank you for your support during the application process. It has paid off. I am admitted to IE!
I signed up for myEssayReview for the 3 reasons. First, it provided one on one service. Throughout the whole process you work with only one person who has a vast experience. Secondly, I read great reviews on the GMAT Club. And last, it has logical pricing.
The free consultation meeting I had with Poonam was very informative and helped me collect my thoughts and ideas and put a plan for the whole application process. After we started working, Poonam’s guidelines and suggestions helped me choose the right stories and highlight my strong points. She always put me back on track whenever I lost focus of the explicit and implicit goals of each required essay. When I had no idea how to address an essay question, she sent me sample essays and also prepared an outline of how each essay should be structured. She even gave me a structured outline with word count for each section which was extremely helpful in shortening the time needed to figure out how the essay should look like.
Before writing the essays, I had no idea what to write and reaching the word count needed seemed impossible. After receiving Poonam’s guidelines and suggestions, it was so easy to pass the word limit and this is where Poonam works her magic in trimming the essay to the needed word count without deleting any important detail. I never had to wait for her feedback. Most of the time, she would answer back within 24 hours. In the worst case scenario, she took 48 hours.
I am very satisfied with Poonam’s “support” as I may call it. Working with her was more of a support than a business transaction. She helps you deal with all the stress that accompanies the application process in a very organized and professional manner. Most importantly, she helps you get admitted to the program of your choice!

I am a military veteran and I was looking to apply to R2 UNC and Stern. I was interested in myEssayReview because it was cost effective, and it outlined an adherence to a strict schedule. I requested for free consultation call to clarify some doubts .The meeting went great, and soon after I signed up for 5 essays, and we started working. I was hesitant at first, but as we progressed I noticed a remarkable improvement from the 1st draft to the finished product. Poonam’s counseling helped me choose the right content/stories for the essays that showcased my candidacy in the best manner. I thought these were very well thought out. I like the negative and positive feedback. Often times people will just tell you what you want to hear, but this is a situation where you need honest feedback and criticism. Prior to writing Poonam sent along documents that outlined what should go in each paragraph. I found this to be very helpful since I do not write for a living. I also liked how she assisted in transitioning each paragraph to relate to one another to make a strong story with great flow. Also, she was perfect in editing my essays to achieve the allowed word count. I never had to wait for her feedback or response to my emails as she was always prompt with her responses and always reverted to me within 24 -48 hours, sometimes sooner.
Thank you for all the work! I love all of the essays that we have worked on. I interviewed with UNC and was accepted to NYU MSRED program.
Overall, I had great experience of working with Poonam and I am leaving this feedback to potential customers. I also referred some of my co-workers to her once they started the application process.

Great Service and Excellent Value
I decided to sign up for myEssayReview services because of relatively good price, relevant sample essays, and blog posts. First I signed up for 1 school package (Haas) and later extended my contract for Wharton’s EMBA program as well. I have been accepted by both.
Following a brainstorming Skype call, Poonam provided me with essay examples, guidelines, and outlines that helped showcase my candidacy. Through Poonam, I learned what stories were relevant to business school and how to present them in a clear and direct way. She also did an amazing job restructuring and reformatting my resume.
Her editing service was very effective. All essays were trimmed to the max word limit without losing any important aspects of the piece. She did her edits and corrections in a timely manner.
I had a great experience working with Poonam. She was able to encourage me as well as make suggestions that would prove beneficial to the final product. Without her invaluable support, I don't think I would have been accepted to either school. Thank you so much Poonam!
