Per the many reviews on this forum re: MBA essay editing services, I decided to submit one of my essays to test the service out. I ended up going with Brian per the many positive reviews. I received the revised essay before the deadline agreed upon and I was very happy with the end result, well worth the money! Brian was successfully able to "pull" my voice out and added that spark that makes an essay jump off the page. I will be using the service again, and Brian, for all future essays. Keep in mind this is not a an essay writing service. Data In = Data Out . The more information you can provide and the closer you can get your essay to an acceptable submission, the better the end result will be. I could not be happier with the end result!

I learned about Gurufi via a peer of mine in MLT MBA Prep. I'm very happy I went with them to review and refine my essay. I selected Brian as my editor and he did an awesome job turning around my essay and providing me meaningful feedback. Unlike other essay services, Brian was very thorough and didn't leave me with a slew of comments that would in turn make me more overwhelmed. Instead his feedback was and actionable. The draft he returned was elevated yet he managed to maintain my voice and the integrity of my story.
I like that Gurufi is very transparent and that you have the option to select an editor. There's also an online portal where you can write to your selected editor - this was key as I was able to provide Brian additional context for the school / essay.
I prefer the Gurufi approach vs other competitors. Another service I used dispatched me to a random reviewer, I was not given any background or credentials of this individual. I was returned a document full of comments that wasn't much stronger than what I submitted. They then asked me to sign up for their hourly consulting to discuss the feedback - rip off?
I will be going with Gurufi moving forward thanks so much Brian!

Brian helped me edited my essay for MBA application. His service is on time and very high quality. His edited results are very vivid and powerful to express my ideas and thoughts. As a non-English speaker, it's very difficult for me to use clear words to express ideas. But Brian modified the whole essays by choosing very accurate and vivid words.
In addition, I asked him to edit during Thanksgiving holidays, and he returned the results within only 2 business days. So he is very helpful during the time you really need urgent editing to meet due days.
Thanks for his help!

I used Gurufi's essay editing service for Rotman's 1000-word spike factor essay. I worked with Brian for this and I can confidently say that he is the best at this job. He brought out the exact emotions in my essay that I wanted to come out without changing the content or the tone. I was thrilled when I received the updated essay from him. It was exactly as I had imagined it to be. Moreover, Brian's turn around time was just 2 days. I got an offer from Rotman with 20% scholarship ultimately. If you are sure of the content and looking for someone to help you bring out the best from it, you can never go wrong with Brian!

I used Brain to help with one of my applications and it was a great decision. The application had a strict word limit so I was able to use him for the entire application. He did a great job helping me understand what I needed to communicate in order to say what really matters. He was readily available, responded promptly, and went above and beyond. I would use Brain again in the future as the service he provided was incredibly valuable to my MBA application experience. He is a instrumental tool to making applicants essays tell their best story. Thank you, Brain.

I worked with Brian at Gurufi for my MBA application and he did an excellent job! He was thorough and very responsive. He is very quick to respond and is very patient and friendly. He elevated my writing to a professional level while still maintaining my voice. I also was having trouble with the word counts. Though not too much over the limit, I was really struggling to cut it down and I even had a few friends helping. Brain, again, worked his magic and revised the essay down to fit the caps. I would highly recommend Brain for anyone that's struggling with their essays!!

I worked with Brian at Gurufi on my HBS essay. His communication was prompt and concise. His quality and preservation of content during the editing process was excellent. Brian not only preserved my voice but also synthesized my text in a much clearer and more direct way.
When responding to my drafts, Brian even offered strategies and tactics to deal with ineffective writing, using examples from movie plots to explain how I can improve the overall flow and structure of my essay. With his guidance, I was able to tweak specific pieces of my essay to either improve transitions or distill overwritten sections.
I highly recommend Brian for any and all editing services for university admissions!

Gilbert is very professional and stays with your edits until you're completely satisfied with the content. He has a nice, personal touch with the edits and always go beyond and above with editing requests. I got into a top 10 graduate school worldwide partly due to his edit of my personal statement. Would definitely recommend Gilbert for any future edits. I engaged in gurufi's service a second with help of my other essays, and the process is very straightforward. Gilbert was also very keen in hearing about all of my requests and tried his best to incorporate all essential details in the essay.

As an international applicant, I was worried about my essay, but Brian and other editors at Gurufi made my essay so much stronger while retaining the meaning and tone. At an affordable price, they are perfect partners for applicants who don't want to pay high price for an admission consultant but still want their essays to be perfect.
I used the essay editing service a couple times with a couple editors. They all returned my essay at the agreed upon deadline and addressed any concern I had.
I would ask Gurufi to edit my essays again if I am applying in the next round.
