There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
I am working on B-school essays and I am finding that there are certain essays that Im not going to come close to the maximum word count. What is the rule of thumb for essays in terms of length? Is it ok to have 400 words for a 500 word max essay? Or 1200 for a 1500 max?
yes, generally going under is ok, unless you left out some details that you could have put in. If you believe you told your story completely and convincingly, it doesn't matter how many words you use (as long as you're under the limit).
I’d like to recommend www bestessayservice com Well, I tried for a couple of years to get into the top 5 programs, but couldn’t make it through. I finally made it to Kellogg. I can see the frustrations that many people in this forum are going through. Anyways, the guys at bestessayservice, they were able to not only form a cohesive, relevant and comprehensive
case for admission but had really good tailor made ideas for each specific school. So you can try them. I think they will want you to send a first draft along with a resume, and then they’ll just revamp your essay to such a high degree, that it’s quite phenomenal. Hey best of luck to all! –Mark B.
You don't need essay editing services or a consultant, as long as you have a solid grasp of the english language and someone willing to read them. If you are coming up short then I suggest you add more details about the school. Its always a safebet to add more about how you fit into the school. Find someone who is applying to trade essays with, or a student/alum who is willing to read them and give you a few pointers.
Honestly I have heard more negative things about consultants and essay services than positive. The majority feed on peoples fears, the good ones are generally very good but as such are also very expensive. The biggest strength for the big name consultants is they know the schools very well so they know what strengths to play to each and how to position you in terms of fit. An essay service wont provide that, they will mainly edit for grammar, spelling, and flow...not content but still is going to cost you a pretty penny.
Research the school, visit the school and sit in on a class, talk to students and alums, attend events...these will provide everything you need to use for your essays.
