UmichEssayServices provides a fresh, thoughtful, and quick review (within 8 hours) of your MBA application essays/resumes in exchange for a donation to the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Our goal is to help make your MBA wishes come true, in return for your help in fulfilling the wishes of a child with a life threatening medical condition.

We are a group of 85 first year MBA students at the University of Michigan’s Ross School of Business competing in a case competition involving the Make A Wish Foundation. Our challenge is to create value for the Make-a-Wish foundation of Michigan and our solution is to offer essay/resume review services, 1 essay/resume for $10 or 3 essays/resumes for $25. This is a pilot offer and is only valid at this rate for the next 48 hours.
[Note: If your essays/resumes are not ready for review, you can still take advantage of this amazing offer by donating to the Make-A-Wish Foundation and we will review your essay/resume when you send it to us.]

!!!! THE DEADLINE FOR THIS OFFER HAS EXPIRED. WE ARE NO LONGER TAKING ANY NEW ESSAYS FOR REVIEW. THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!!!

This is how it works:
Step 1: Visit the website {link has been removed}, fill in your name and make a donation. (1 for $10, 3 for $25)
Step 2: Email us (UmichEssayServices@gmail.com) with your email receipt from Make-A-Wish Foundation and your essay(s)/resume(s). To better serve you, please include your professional and academic background.
Step 3: We send you a confirmation and start the review process.
Step 4: We return your critiqued essays within 8 hours.

Our review is a high-level overview of the following:
1) Overall impression and thoughts

I would like to add that I have been in the shoes of an applicant recently and I would have loved to get a stranger's or a third person perspective on my essays. I did get help from my friends but they came back saying that they knew me well enough to not provide a meaningful information. I think this is a great idea and we can definitely take advantage of it and help it move forward beyond the 48 hours.

Hi
Sorry for my skepticism but how could you prove that you are from Ross? Any @ross.edu email?

No problem, I'm in the room with a bunch of the other students and we're trying to figure out the best way to prove that we are students without giving out our personal email addresses.

Give us 15 minutes, we've got a plan!

Sorry for skepticism guys, but I am as a former auditor and current moderator must be cautious :)

Guys I have been contacted by one of the students and the person provided me with his/her e-mail.

By the way - I think Ross School of Business at University of Michigan is probably the BEST business school for primarily ONE REASON - the people. People make companies go round. People make the world go round. I think UMICH is the best business school in the WORLD.

Love the team comraderie - I'm so happy to see this!

Great idea section 2!

For prospective applicants: This is a great cause and a fun challenge offered to the 6 incoming sections of FT MBA students at Ross this year. Each section is trying to raise as much money as possible, so please take these talented MBA's up on their offer and donate to a great cause.

(Full Disclosure - I'm in a competing section and won't benefit from your donations)
