The MBA "DNA Test" - Do your essays pass? [#permalink]

New post 13 Dec 2010, 22:57
We recently sent out an email to prospective clients who have downloaded one of our b-school guides and/or engaged us in a free consultation and we also wanted to make the GMAT Club community aware of a critical step in readying your applications - one that is uniquely serviced by one of our consulting packages. We call it the "MBA DNA Test" and it utilizes the same school-specific excavation techniques you see in our posts, on our calls, and in our free How to Apply guides (and yes, we are working on more guides as we speak, but they won't be available until next year).

Is this package right for you? It comes down to one critical question:

Does your application pass the DNA Test for the schools you are applying to?

We specialize in a contextual analysis of your essays that makes sure you are not only hitting the right structure (structure is incredibly important in essay writing), content, and tone, but also matching your unique story with the unique "DNA" of each top business school.

Here is some examples, representing just the tip of the iceberg:

*Are your Wharton essays telling a story of innovation through community and connection to a global world? Are you using the optional essays to extend the Required Essay in order to tell a full Career Goals narrative?

*Are your Booth essays talking about being stretched, challenged, and pushed in ways you've never experienced? Are you tapping into the vibrant social community that Chicago has created (and desperately wants you to know about)?

*Have you provided not just short-term and long-term career goals for Columbia, but also an alternate path that shows your resiliency and pragmatism? Are you expressing an overt desire to come to campus and plug right in?

*Is your first Stanford essay so personal and heart-felt that you are a little embarrassed to have people read it? Does the long-term vision you have for your career connect with your passions?

*Do your Sloan essays feature a steady diet of thought-based leadership examples and innovative ideas?

Every school has these DNA elements that make the difference between an interview and a pass, an admit and a ding. There are an exponential number of "qualified" candidates and the way to stand out is to tap into the elemental aspects of a program in your essays.

It goes without saying that this is where we come in. We have discovered that at this time of year, with Round 2 right around the corner, our most effective package is our MBA DNA Test - an essay-focused package that helps ensure that you cover these critical areas, while also maximizing the entire set of essays for a school. Here's how it works:

*We review your essay drafts and/or outlines for a specific program and provide a DNA Test; analyzing whether you are addressing each question correctly, hitting the key points, and maxing out every available way to 'score points' in the process

*No lengthy consultation required - you send us what you have, along with your resume and a client survey, and we take over!

*After you revise, we then do another full round of edits for structure (never forget: structure is king when it comes to pleasing the overworked reader!), content, and style.

*The price is normally $1,600

*For all GMAT Club clients, we are offering a special price of $1,450.

We have approximately 20 MBA DNA Test spots still available for the early January deadlines, so email to lock up your spot as soon as possible!

Best of luck this admissions season and happy holidays as well.
