About myEssayReview

Founded in 2011, myEssayReview (MER) is a simple, dedicated, effective, and personalized B-school essay-review service that believes in the principle that all applicants possess unique perspectives and life experiences that set them apart. Because of this personalization, 90% of MER students have been accepted into majority (not one, but majority!!) of the schools of their choosing. MER students with scores between 610 - 680 have secured admission to schools such as Kellogg, Booth, ISB, CMU, Manchester, HAAS etc. Similarly, MER students with high GMAT scores (typically 700+) have not only secured admissions but also fellowships from Darden, Ivy Richards, Emory, Tippie, Cornell, CMU, etc.

After taking their GMAT, a number of students are confused as to which school to apply to. Hence, I compiled a list of schools where my recent students have been admitted to. The above list can help you with the following:

  1. Understand the role that a good application plays in getting you scholarships (and not just admission). Please note that a majority of scholarships are 50% or higher.
  2. Narrow down the list of schools that you think is feasible, given your GMAT score. While the above list is not comprehensive, it gives you an idea of what is feasible. For example, even with a GMAT score of 660, a great application package can help you get into top schools such as Kellogg, Booth etc.

The Secret to My Students' Success

Successful applications showcase coherent and compelling stories that make an applicant stand out in the crowd of other applicants. I believe that most people have compelling stories to tell which they can translate into winning essays if they introspect and evaluate their achievements and skills. I specialize in translating applicants’ uniqueness into compelling admission essays. (Click here to check out blogs.)

When you work with myEssayReview, you don’t just work with a good consultant, you work with the best–-the founder and CEO of the company. In fact, most MER students get into so many good schools (INSEAD, MIT, Kellogg, Booth, GT, Emory, Kelley, UNC, Ivy Richards, Cornell, Rochester, UC Berkeley etc.) that it becomes a challenge to decide on the school that they will finally attend.
