I wanted to know if there was any interest in applicants of the same program, wanting to do some essay swaps and edit each others. It gives us here at GMATClub, a way we can help out each other, even more.

I know that GMATClub has an "essay bank", but access into it requires some unGodly number of posts (like 3 billion or so) which, would only qualify those who asks a huge amount of questions during their GMAT study time portion and asks tons of questions during the researching of various MBA programs, or those already in an MBA program, who simply help everyone here a ton.

Those of us who make up the bulk of the members by participating by both asking questions and assisting our fellow forum mates without having posts reminiscent of twitter, seem to start with posts that number around 30+.

So I wanted to know if there was any interest in members applying to the same schools, wanting to swap essays to get personal feedback, without bugging the standard senior members or those who have already attending school, and rarely come back to the forums.

Thoughts?

My apps are all in, but I'm happy to review essays if I have time; I posted as much on my blog. I've reviewed for a number of folks, and I enjoy it. Send me a PM with any essay you want comments on and I'll respond when I get time.

I would be down for it. I have the majority of my essays written for Round 2, but would be willing to swap. Please PM me if interested.

Terrific,

I guess the best way to tackle this is for those who are willing to swap, is to say so with which programs they want to swap for. Then it can be more than just members PMing me, but allows others to PM you and whoever else is posting. We can also up the "security" by not allowing swaps based upon the number of posts we feel is comfortable enough to be a mutual player, rather than just a user (taker/lurker), and require them to post on this thread that they're a willing to swaper.

Or maybe i'm over thinking this...

Regardless, I'll start out.

Willing to swap:
HBS, Stanford, Kellogg, & LBS
Consortium Core essays + Darden, McComb, Marshall

miccarlo: I'll send you my Kellogg and Stanford when I'm done with it. Still got a ways to go though. Hopefully done with a Stanford draft by this weekend.
