MBA or EMBA Recommendation Editing

Recommendation Editing gives your recommender the opportunity to work with me and have his/her recommendation edited/commented. Editing gives you peace of mind knowing that your recommender is communicating clearly in written English, accurately conveying his/her ideas and avoiding inadvertently divulging something that could adversely affect your application.
Another service I offer,  Recommendation Talking Points, can compliment the Recommendation Editing service. The Recommendation Talking Points service is a detailed outline that defines topics and supporting examples that your recommender can use to structure his/her recommendation.

Deliverable: I edit and/or comment your recommender’s draft of the recommendation – ensuring that it’s polished and meets with the expectations of the admissions committee.

Process: Either you or your recommender will email me their recommendation → I’ll edit/comment the document and return it to you within 2 working days  → An optional follow up call or email (between you and I or myself and your recommender) takes place to go over the edits and comments and solicit additional information if necessary.

Turnaround Time: Each service contains several deliverables. The turnaround time for any one deliverable (like new edits to a document based on client feedback) is a maximum of two business days (see the FAQs for more information). Total turnaround time is a function of a) the client’s availability to schedule calls and b) the amount of time the client requires to provide feedback on drafts. A typical timeline follows.

  • Day 1: Client or recommender emails me the recommendation draft.
  • Day 3: I return the recommendation with edits and/or comments.
  • Day 5: Optional follow-up call or email with recommender to answer questions or provide further edits based on their comments.
  • Day 7: I send the client or recommender a final draft of the recommendation – ready for upload.
