Essays

Vincia Prep helps you with whole application

With Vinicia Prep, you'll be guided by a teacher that knows not only the GMAT or GRE, but also how to handle the essays, and interviews.  This allows you to go through the entire process more efficiently because your coach will be able to help you make the right decisions at the right time for the whole application.  In addition, since we've helped students get into many of the world's best schools, there is a good chance we can put you in contact with a current student or alumna from the school you would like to go to. Also, if you haven't begun writing your essays yet, check out our video on how to get started. 

MBA and Masters Applications Essays

Since you're reading this page, you probably realize the importance of the application essays.  Generally, your test score on the GMAT/GRE is used as a screening process, while your essays get you in.  Our coach Dan has helped students write successful essays for INSEAD, Harvard, Columbia, HEC, and most of the other top schools in the world. Futhermore, our other essay coach, Alexis, managed to get into both Stanford, and Harvard.

 

Private tutoring: 95 euros an hour

1) First, we start off by helping you choose your schools.

2) Secondly, we'll go through your examples and ideas that you have thought of for the essays.  This step has become particularly critical this year as many top schools are only asking one essay question (whereas in the past the usually asked four or five), but are still expecting responses to several points (they want to know about your maturity, intelligence/ability, leadership, and teamwork).

2) Next, you'll write your rough draft, and then we'll go over it looking for "macro" changes that need to be made.  This step generally only takes a couple hours for all of the essays and can save you from making some big mistakes.  After we've edited your essays we'll go through them together, piece by piece, to make sure that you're on the right track.  

3) After all of the macro revisions are taken care of we'll go over the details by sending your essays to a professional writer in the US making your essays really shine.

During all of the revisions we use a tracking tool that shows you exactly how long we've worked on your essays and how fast we improved your essays.  Generally, it takes about ten to fifteen hours to go through all of the essays, but this can really vary depending on your current writing ability.

Select the universities they will apply to

Write a very convincing personal statement (PS) - The PS is without doubt the most important document of the application file. Students must explain and justify their professional project, demonstrate that they have already acquired some of the knowledge and skills to fulfil their career ambition during their bachelor and the internships they have completed. Furthermore, they must demonstrate that undertaking the master degree they are applying to is essential for them to lead a successful career future.

Obtain the best recommendation letter as possible - The majority of university teachers working in France and French professionals do not know precisely what elements to highlight in this document, for they are not very familiar with the English higher education system. Students must thus explain to them aspects they should highlight, if they agree of course.

     Reorganise their CV in a detailed and convincing manner

 

 

MBA Interviews

For many schools half of the students are accepted after the interview.  Our job is to make sure that you are part of that half.  We do this by prepping you with past questions that were used by the school that you're applying to, and sometimes we even manage to use some of the exact questions that are asked in the current year for your particular school.

The Process

1) We start by sending you questions that you should use to prepare.

2) When you are done with your initial preparation, we'll do the first interview.  Afterward we'll give you feedback on how to improve and prepare for the second interview.

3) Finally, we'll do the second interview approximately a week later in which we'll go through other possible questions that could be asked.  Again,once the interview is finished (that lasts approximately an hour) we'll go through your strengths and weaknesses and give you some more homework to do before your actual interview.
