- If I had the time, it would be possible for me to spend an entire year writing my essays. And I still wouldn’t be happy with them.
- Deadlines are important. My first deadline is still about a month away, but I’ve set a “soft” deadline to get a draft to my reviewers to ensure I don’t waste too much time nit picking my own work. Other people can do that for me.
- The “career path / why do you want to go here” question is pretty much part of every essay package I need to write. The problem is the word length is different for each. I basically need to tell the same story in 200, 400, and 1000 word count versions.
- Low word count limits suck. It’s really frustrating when you have a great essay to write, but only get to use 250 words to do so. C’mon, this is my ringer essay!
- I scored pretty well in Sentence Correction and I’m feeling the after effects of it on my essays. I now notice all of my errors in parallelism, dangling modifiers, and subject verb agreement and feel the urge to immediately correct them.
- Speaking with alumni makes essay writing easier. Writing essays is like trying to impress someone on a date. It’s great when you can do some recon beforehand and figure out what he or she likes. That way you can tailor your essays and write them with confidence and precision.
- My GMAT score feels like it happened 10 years ago. I know I should gain confidence from it, but the essays have a way of cutting you down to size.
