I have been providing free review for students Statement of Purpose (SOP) and Letter of Recommendation (LOR). I have received so many emails from students applying for Fall 2009 (both Masters and PhD) have submitted their SOP and LOR for review.
I spent good amount of time, reading each and every SOP, Resume, Letter of Recommendation and provides the review. It was very time consuming process. Number of students submitting the documents for review increased dramatically and at any given time, I have 40+ students documents to be reviewed. I like to provide in-depth review for every document.
Statement of Purpose – Review
I have over 6 years experience in reading SOP and preparing documents to help students applying to U.S. Schools. During the review I will look for following details
- Flow of your Ideas
- SOP Structure
- Ideas and personal story presented
- Does your SOP have that “WOW” factor schools are looking for?
- Does your SOP have required attributes to make your application stand-out?
- Additional skills and qualifications you can include in your SOP.
- Will SOP help you in getting Financial Aid?
- Much More….
Letter of Recommendation – Review
Recommendation letter plays a major role when applying to Graduate School. Professors evaluate and get to know you better by reference provided by your professor’s, managers, .. But, there are certain skills that have to be included, that will assists graduate school admission committee to evaluate your application in much better way.
LOR review will include check to see if you have all the required skills and attributes that Graduate school admission committee looks for. Missing one or two key attributes can cost you scholarship. There are certain skills that have to be included in LOR. By reviewing the LOR, I can identify if you have missed any of those skills in LOR.
Resume – Review
Resume templates used in India is much different from the template and format used in U.S. I have seen resume where Fathers Name is included in the Personal Details. Here in U.S. you don’t include fathers name in the resume.
Those small things will definitely lower the impression on students application. With my review, I can identify such small mistakes and make your resume, stand out and create an impression. Resume review doesn’t include re-writing or changing template. I will suggest changes to existing resume you will submit.
How Much Does It cost?
I know very well, applying to U.S. is not easy task and its expensive too. Every student will spend some $50,000 to $80,000 during entire phase of applying to U.S. Schools.
- Review of One Statement of Purpose (twice), 3 LOR (once) and Resume (once) for Rs.1500
Many students just wanted to get a better idea about the schools they plan to apply. There are many information you might not be aware. So, I’m adding this package for just Rs500 to give an opportunity for every student. I know applying for U.S. is expensive process and that’s the main reason, for such low fee to get your universities reviewed. There are many students who just opted for just this package.
Spending Rs 1500 ( ~$25) is very less compared to $100+ you spend on application fee, GRE and TOEFL Score forwarding for each school.
If you are interested, send me an email using the contact form. I will glad to help you with the review process. Good luck with your admission process. If I were you, I would definitely spend Rs.1500 if that is going to improve my admission chance.
If you were to get the same review, you can certainly ask around with other consultancy firms, they charge Rs10,000+ for same review. But, for same review here it costs Rs.1500. Above all you get the same personalized service as you can see from the blog articles.
