It should be noted that all final decisions with regard to grades, applications, and/or interviews are made by external, non-affiliate parties. It is our primary objective to provide you with all the essential tools in order to give you a competitive edge, however, we cannot in any shape or form complete your applications on your behalf, write your letters/CV/autobiographical sketches, guarantee test scores, admission decisions, etc. It is the responsibility of the applicants to follow the specific instructions of their school of their choice in order to ensure the safe and timely arrival of their applications. It should be understood that academic performance is dependent upon many other variables outside the control of BeMo Academic Consulting. Additionally, BeMo, operates in an ethical manner and all data presented are obtained through publicly available sources. Importantly, note that BeMo is not affiliated with , nor endorse, any of the organizations mentioned including but not limited to universities, colleges, official test administrators or any external websites, unless otherwise it is explicitly indicated.
