Consultant: Poonam Tandon

I knew that I needed someone with experience and skill to guide me through the SOP as it has been emphasized numerous times that exam scores wouldn't matter much if I couldn't convince the admissions team that I was worth giving a chance to. I was shifting from the Engineering stream to Economics and Finance and I needed an iron clad story. And myEssayReview comes with excellent commendations about the same.

Poonam scheduled a free consultation meeting that helped clarify the major doubts I had about the sop and CV and I was able to discuss my unique case and the aspects of my education that could be highlighted in the essay to make it convincing. After the meeting, I felt confident about signing up. The one hour session after the first review of SOP was insightful.I know that I would not have included a number of key points in my SOP if I wasn't encouraged to do so. Poonam helped me strategically highlight certain aspects of my personality to make me sound intellectual and focused on my career. I wanted to highlight my interest in teaching and pursuing an academic career as the main reasons of my eligibility to the program. Poonam helped me frame them accordingly.After four iterations, my SOP sounded crisp and succinct and did not have the redundancy it would have had if I was left to my own devices. The PhD in English shows.

My biggest worry with the recommendation letters was that the admissions team would know that I was involved in the writing process. Poonam’s idea of delegation proved to be rather clever and the ultimate solution to my problem. This way, they echoed my SOP but sounded different. I did have more doubts than the average candidate, but Poonam helped me work around them. Her replies were very prompt; I received her edits and response to my email 24 hours on the dot. As punctual as her website says.

Applying to grad schools can be a terrifying experience. I am very glad to have had an expert help me with the SOP, CV and LORs. That gave me enough confidence to wade through the rest of the process with significantly less worry. I was accepted by all the schools I applied to ,and I am thrilled to begin my graduate studies at the University of Warwick this Fall.Thank you, Poonam. You've been amazing. You managed to assemble my whirling dervish of ideas into an essay that sounded compelling.

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.

I decided to sign up for myEssayReview services because of many reasons. First, Poonam is highly experienced and by choosing myEssayReview I could work directly with her. Secondly, a lot of positive and detailed comments from previous candidates made me feel confident in choosing her. And lastly, the price is reasonable and far less expensive than other consultant companies.

Although my spoken English is not so good, the one-hour session I had with her went along smoothly. We exchanged information about my background/ motivation; Poonam soon drew an outline for the service procedure and timeline of my application, and provided a lot of useful suggestions I have never thought of. She was not only concerned about details but also watchful on big picture. All the guidelines she suggested related closely with my motivations and career goals. Besides, she kept a great balance between the stories. I made a big mistake when drawing outline for the video essay. Poonam soon addressed all the invalidities and helped me improve a lot in the 2nd version. Besides, she gave me very useful tips on improving my first video essay.

I would say, Poonam’s editing is super effective. Poonam can always find ways to trim the essays without affecting the contents. In the final version, we were able to meet all the word-limits with no problem. Poonam corrected my sentence structure punctuation and grammar errors and helped me choose the right words. At first, I felt she is a bit strict but soon realized that it is highly necessary. With her expertise and dedicated revisions, my essays improved significantly, and I was more than satisfied when we had the final version of my essays.

Poonam’s response time is faster than what is mentioned on her website. I could always get the reply very soon, sometimes even within a few hours. Yes, from the beginning to the end she always got back to me on time. That is why we could effectively meet the tight deadline.

I am accepted by my dream school. Tons of thanks Poonam for your consistent help during my application process! As I say it has been my best of luck choosing to work with you, and I would definitely recommend myEssayReview to other candidates.

I saw a post on FB that recommended MyEssayReview services. After that, I immediately went to the website and saw a bunch of good samples and good reviews. I had a strong intuition about positive outcome the services could provide, so I requested for free consultation meeting.

We had a very strong first discussion, and it solidified my desire to use the services. We spent about 30 minutes on a call and Poonam first introduced herself, and then explained her services and the standard process of essay review. Lastly, she gave me tips and tools to start writing and we reconvened a few days later. The one hour brainstorming session was also very positive. Poonam was able to adjust my thinking to how I would approach each essay. I realized that my initial idea of how to approach the essay was all wrong.

Poonam’s suggestions / pointers were all very straightforward and extremely helpful to follow. Also, each essay I started with a brainstorm, and she quickly pointed me in the right direction and helped me craft a succinct and powerful essay which answered the question in its entirety. The structure and framework help was invaluable; my initial drafts were all over the place and skirted around answering the question. With a few minor adjustments, she brought the essay to life, increased readability, and guided me in the proper direction regarding what needed to be added to fully answer the question.

For editing, I would give her 10 out of 10. Through multiple drafts (6 iterations on my 2nd essay) her advice was invaluable and helped me focus and rethink how I should properly approach the problem (what was working, what wasn’t working). Regarding turnarounds, I was the one who missed the 24 to 48 hour turnaround times which happened a handful of times. She never missed a single one, and they were usually well in advance of the timeline. On average, it was closer to a few hours.

I am extremely happy with the services and would recommend this to anyone who needs guidance with properly formulating an essay. Although I was ecstatic that I was done with the process, it was bittersweet as I thoroughly enjoyed our back and forth iterations and feedback, comments within the documents.

I am accepted by the MBA @UNC. I began classes last month and am really enjoying it. It was great working with you, Poonam! I am very happy I went ahead and used you.

I found Poonam on the web and checked out her sample essays. I typed grad school sample essays online and sample essays on myEssayReview were the first ones that showed up. It was very kind of her to show on website how the applicants should structure their essays. The sample essays made me decide to use Poonam's service. I read one sample and found it very structured and easy to read.

Communication is the key to understand a candidate. The one hour initial skype call met my expectation and helped me think as a writer. Poonam patiently listened to my story to understand my background. She was very quick to response and always in a professional manner. It was very easy to understand her note. She was willing to listen to my feedback and edit until we both were satisfied. I knew there was a problem with my essays but couldn’t figure out quite right. Poonam’s suggestions guided me through my thinking process and helped me with the flow of my essay. Her suggestion of presenting my story in chorological order worked very well.

Despite the fact that we had only five days to meet the deadline, and she was travelling, Poonam really pushed me to finish the application before my deadline. My overall experience of working with her was great. Thank you Poonam for helping me
to get into an MBA program ! Best of luck!

My husband a Kellogg grad had previously used Poonam's essay review service with success and on his recommendation I decided to also work with Poonam on my essays.

Poonam is extremely organized, professional and knows what this is about. I'm a new mom and Poonam was quite accommodating to my schedule and my limitations. At the same time, she was forceful enough and pushed me to complete the essays within certain deadlines. The best thing about Poonam's service is that she does not "make up" stuff for you. She is highly ethical and helps you write "your" story beautifully, but it is still "yours".

The process was also highly efficient: Poonam sets up an initial call to understand your background and professional history, and then worked via e-mails on the essay drafts. I liked that Poonam made an effort to get to know my background, rather than slot me into a particular profile.

Poonam makes this quite clear, but just wanted to say that this is the right service for you, if you are willing to put in the work. Poonam will not generate the content for you, which is what I liked about her.

Poonam was highly supportive and offered some great insight even though I didn't sign up for the admissions package. I got into both schools I applied to- Kellogg and Berkeley Haas. Thank you Poonam for all your hard work, support and encouragement and sorry about driving you a little mad with my tardiness in keeping to a schedule.

I first read about myEssayReview when I was looking for tips on ISB essays and found the essay analysis by Poonam to be very helpful and clear. As a re-applicant to ISB, I felt confident in myEssayReview services .So I approached Poonam and signed up for 1 school package.

When I first submitted the essays they were all over the place. Poonam’s suggestions made me realize that most of the time I was missing the link in my stories; she was able to spot the missing links and get out the relevant content from me. She asked valid questions and simplified language so that it becomes clear what I wanted to say in my essays. Thus, she helped me in generating ideas for each essay question and create a sensible story that will impress the Ad Com. The word limit specifications of ISB were very stringent, but Poonam was very effective in trimming down the essays to the specified word limit while keeping all the content and not changing the meaning. She used simple and clear language that is easily comprehensible.

Poonam was very flexible with the turnaround times, sometimes coming back within 12 hours in crunch times. She never missed a deadline! She was aware of the deadlines and concerned as well and made sure that the essays/LORs were complete by the deadline. Throughout the process, she satisfactorily addressed all my concerns and queries.

I must say, working with Poonam was a great experience. Thank you Poonam for your support. It wouldn’t have been possible without the splendid job you did with my essays :)

If you are looking for a dedicated and quality essay review service, myEssayReview is the service you should choose.

I enrolled for one essay review. I am not sure about other admission consulting services but Poonam is one of the best for sure. She is very dedicated and quick with her reviews on my essays. She sticks to the timelines and makes the process stress-free. She has a flair to transform your initial draft to attractive essay.

I applied for only one school and i got in with scholarship.I would recommend anyone who is looking for streamlining their initial draft and make their essay standout. Poonam is very quick to understand out concerns and recommendations on how we want our essays to be and works on those lines.

Overall, I am satisfied with her service and would recommend anyone who is in process of writing their essays.

Poonam (of my essayreview) gave me an excellent feedback regarding all aspects of essay writing and she was very prompt to edit and send the essays back to me every single time (turn around time for each draft was 24 hours or less and we did 3-4 drafts per essay). She encouraged me and provided inputs to make my essays drafts more clear, concise & interesting every time.

One can actually see a drastic improvement in the final essay from the first draft. Poonam has always answered all my questions and doubts I had asked along with my drafts. Thanks for helping me make my essay more candid!
