If you are a current Accepted client, you’re likely familiar with our firm’s practice of conducting peer reviews as part of our service. Peer review is a crucial step in our process, one in which Accepted consultants seek input from their colleagues in the firm, asking them to help evaluate and enhance our clients’ essays as we approach the final stages of the application process. Whether you’ve opted for a package or hourly service, rest assured that peer review is an integral component of the service in which you’ve invested. Let’s delve into why this practice is so significant.
You gain a fresh perspective
You’ve established a close rapport with your dedicated consultant throughout the admissions journey. However, our peer review process introduces a new dimension. Just as an admissions officer would when first approaching an application, the Accepted peer reviewer forms an objective first impression of an essay you meticulously refined with your consultant over several iterations – and then shares this information with your consultant.
It emulates an author-editor relationship
The dynamic between one’s consultant and their peer reviewer – like that between an author and their editor – is pivotal to your success. This symbiotic partnership ensures that our consultants uphold a standard of excellence for each client’s benefit.
You benefit from diverse insights and continuous learning
At Accepted, our consultants bring a wealth of distinct expertise to every engagement. The peer reviewer contributes a diverse perspective, enriching the essay evaluation process. The resulting feedback is invaluable, and the exchange fosters an environment of ongoing learning and continuous improvement in our practices.
The Accepted peer review system exemplifies our commitment to delivering top-tier guidance and support throughout your admissions journey. The multifaceted insights provided by the peer reviewer, akin to those of an admissions officer, editor, and educator, collectively refine your essays and enhance the overall quality of your application. We firmly believe that this collaborative approach increases your chances of achieving the admissions success you deserve.
