Can I request help reviewing and critiquing an MBA application essay?


It's not really homework and I'm asking for assistance and critique, not someone to do it for me.
I'm thinking I'd rather PM it to someone than post it here.

Mods- OK?

Feel free to PM it to me, though I can't guarantee I'll be of any help. Let me know stuff like deadlines, etc, so I don't blow it off too long.

You definitely shouldn't post it here in case somebody runs it through a plagiarism check and it pops up from this site.

You're welcome to ask. We updated the FAQ a little while back to state this, though there is still a bit that says don't ask people to do your homework for you:

A: Yes. You may ask, but no one is obligated to do your homework for you and typically posters prefer to guide you to the proper resources so that you have the ability to do your own homework. Sometimes other posters may oblige your request.

I am an ex-college prof and I have helped with grad school admission stuff via the board in the past. E.g., there was a poster who had made many posts I openly admired and so on. So it wasn't really a random doper.

The member contacted me via PM and things went from there.

But right now I have Other Matters to deal with.

Done. You may not like what I had to write.

(OK, I'm really just saying that last for the peanut gallery here. )

I’ve scored standardized test essays since 2001 so I’d be happy to read it as well.
