To achieve this goal, it will require your effective time management, high quality of work, and commitment to the process. Before we get started, please read and agree to our Company-Applicant Collaboration Policy.
DRAFTING: You are entitled to two revisions for each part of your application materials. As a rule, the better the quality of your drafts the better the results we can provide! In short, if you give us a C (below average) quality statement, the best we can do is get it to a B (above average). Therefore, make sure you spend the time so that we can make your application A+ quality (outstanding).
COMMUNICATION: Your primary point of contact for everything related to your application materials is your assigned Admissions Expert. If you have any questions that are administrative (billing, technical, etc.), please direct those to the Office Director.
PROJECT MANAGEMENT: All the application work will be conducted on the secure Zoho Project Portal. This includes setting deadlines, uploading draft documents, and general application specific communication. We use this portal to ensure confidentiality, and to monitor quality, deadlines, and communication flow. Any questions on the project portal can be directed to the Office Manager.
TIME MANAGEMENT: One of the most important parts of the application process is staying ahead of deadlines. We fully understand that you may have competing priorities — academic studies, personal commitments, professional responsibilities, extra-curricular activities. However, it’s your responsibility to attend pre-arranged calls, meet agreed upon draft submissions, and follow all academic deadlines. If this is not adhered to, it will significantly jeopardize your chances of admission and we will reserve the right to terminate our agreement per the Company Terms herein.
