13. What is your success rate?
Very good question. We tried to measure that during the initial few years but failed to calculate it to any meaningful degree of accuracy.
Reason # 1: Not all applicants take our service for all the essay of a particular school. In case you take service for only one essay and then get admitted or rejected, then neither we can count that as our success or failure. Because, out of entire application, you just took our help on one essay.
Reason # 2: For those applicants, who have purchased an entire school essay package, our contribution was just limited to admission essays. We worked to ensure that he gets an interview call. But, we didn’t influence the outcome of the interview.
Reason # 3: Candidates, who purchased our service for all the application essays and MBA interview, are good subset to measure the success rate. In that category, our success rate till date has been above 90%. This is in spite of the fact that many applicants apply to some of the most competitive schools such as Harvard, Stanford, LBS, ISB and IMD.
Even though, we have been able to track our success rate for the category 3, calculating the overall success rate is impossible. In case some consultant is stating that he has 70% success rate, be careful and ask him how he has arrived at that number.
As a consultant, I will help you to strengthen your application essays. As your mentor, I will guide you throughout the entire application process. But I won't write the whole essay.
