Last year, I decided to do a second MBA as I realized I needed the extra push to further my career. Given the complicated nature of applications and the additional emphasis needed to convince admission committees on "why" I wanted to pursue a second MBA, I signed up for MER services for my essays.
At the end of the day, that was the best decision I made. Her one-hour session on skype was very productive, and I learnt a significant amount on how to best present my resume and essays. During this session, we developed an action plan for the essays which was helpful when I started drafting them.
Poonam gave me very good advice on presenting content to effectively answer the questions asked. One specific recommendation that was very helpful was on the ‘failure’ essay. I had a ‘weak’ failure and Poonam encouraged me to think deeper and present a different one. From a structure perspective, I really liked how my ECA essay was revamped from being reverse chronological to chronological. I think it brought out different aspects of my personality really well.
Her editing skills are impeccable. English is not my native language, so I sometimes get confused on grammar rules. Poonam, in addition to being super helpful in her reviews, went out of her way to explain certain subject verb agreement issues . Impeccable and detailed.
Poonam is a stickler of turnaround timelines and sticks to her schedule of 24-48 hr turnaround time. This turned out to be very helpful in maintaining timelines.
Poonam is a pro at MBA essays! My overall experience working with her was great as explained !! Yes, I got accepted into CEIBS with ~40% scholarship!!! I sure will recommend her to prospective candidates known to me.
