I also appreciated that there was not a limit on the number of drafts we exchanged before the final version was approved. Over time, this gets better but I guess I exchanged my first goals essay with him maybe 10 times. Also, Daniel prefers to use Skype a lot to consult new essay topics or gain clarity around current content. His responsiveness was also usually very fast, sometimes even a couple drafts in an evening.
The complete package includes work on the resume, a Skype mock interview and suggestions on how to approach recommendation letters. I found all these fairly helpful.
The downsides of working with Daniel were few. Sometimes (but rarely) an essay version would “fall through the cracks”, which might have been due to me working on 5 school package. Also, Daniel might seem a bit stern and demanding at times; but after all, you do not pay a consultant to have your ego polished.
I would strongly recommend Daniel to people who prefer a closer relationship with their consultant and are willing to devote the time to a relatively long self-discovery.
