MBA ADMISSION ESSAY COACHING

MBA Admission Essay Coaching

The decision to attend business school, especially when you are a slightly older student, is not to be taken lightly. In many cases, the strength of your application hinges on your application essay. Let Yates Writing Consulting help you with some or all phases of the process, so you can be in the best position possible to gain admittance to the highest school on your list.

We offer the following packages:

Package #1 (Red)


This option is built for the student who is staring at a blank canvas, so to speak. If you are finding yourself flummoxed by the prompt and are beginning to sweat at the thought of an impending deadline, consider investing in the Red package. This one-stop-shop starts with an introductory, face-to-face call, where the impersonal nature of the process suddenly becomes personal. After discussing goals and expectations for the experience, we will immediately dive into the prompts themselves, discussing how best to approach them and to bend them to your strengths. We will flesh out ideas fully, so that you feel comfortable with the topic before the writing process even begins. If necessary, we will help you develop an outline so you have a template to guide you through the writing process. Once you have draft, YWC will offer you two passes through editing to ensure you have a strong product before the final wrap-up discussion.

Package includes:

1) 30M introductory goals discussion via Skype

  • Discussion of goals, preliminary concerns
  • What are you most concerned about?

2) Prompt brainstorm

  • This phase helps you tackle the prompt, to begin to sort out your ideas, and to create a vision for your essay
  • YWC will equip you with a “game strategy” so you confident in your work rather than overwhelmed

3) Help with outlining/scaffolding (if necessary)
 
4) Detailed critique of an early draft (through MS Word Comment feature)

  • Surface-level grammar will be remedied
  • Specific ‘second order’ editing concerns will be highlighted. Examples will be provided you can rework writing in your own style
  • Major structural concerns will be addressed (if necessary)

5) Light critique of a later draft

  • Quick edit to make ensure surface-level flaws are eliminated
  • ‘Second Order’ edits to address overall cohesion of document. Comments will not ask client to make sweeping changes at this point, as this would be unreasonable given the stage of the process.

6) 30M Wrap-up discussion via Skype

  • Last minute concerns

Package #2 (White)

This package is essentially the same as the Red, but it is designed for applicants who already have a working draft in hand when they contact YWC, hence there is no time spent on visioning or outlining.

Package includes:

1) 30M introductory goals discussion via Skype

  • Discussion of goals, preliminary concerns
  • What are you most concerned about?

2) Detailed critique of an early draft (through MS Word Comment feature)

  • Surface-level grammar will be remedied
  • Specific ‘second order’ editing concerns will be highlighted. Examples will be provided you can rework writing in your own style
  • Major structural concerns will be addressed (if necessary)

3) Light critique of a later draft

  • Quick edit to make ensure surface-level flaws are eliminated
  • ‘Second Order’ edits to address overall cohesion of document. Comments will not ask client to make sweeping changes at this point, as this would be unreasonable given the stage of the process.

Package #3 (Blue)

The blue package is our most basic package and is designed for applicants who feel solid in their candidacy but who want a comprehensive editing job performed on their essay(s). Note: only one pass will be performed on the essay whereas the other two packages offer two passes.

Package includes:

Light critique of a later draft

  • Quick edit to make ensure surface-level flaws are eliminated
  • ‘Second Order’ edits to address overall cohesion of document. Comments will not ask client to make sweeping changes at this point, as this would be unreasonable given the stage of the process.
