Unique Team Approach

Features a team of 4 B-school admissions experts on your side throughout the entire process.

Primary Counselor: Your Primary Counselor holds an MBA from a top program and is matched with you based on your profile. They provide you with expert guidance throughout the entire MBA application process. They work side-by-side with you through the pre application, application and post application stages of the process. They will help you find the school that best fits your experience and values, the school that will prepare you to reach your goals!

Senior Strategist: Your Senior Strategist, also a top MBA, provides additional insight and guidance at key points in the process. Once you and your Primary Counselor have developed your Personal MBA Strategy, you will have a joint call to review your goals and strategy. Your Senior Strategist reviews your outlines for each program to ensure that you are executing on your strategy and that the content matches what each school is looking for.

Secondary Reviewer: Your Secondary Reviewers provide ‘blind’ feedback on your essays; meaning they are not familiar with your story and only have your resume and essays. Each Secondary Reviewer is intimately familiar with the programs for which they review essays. If you are applying to four MBA programs, you will likely have four different Secondary Reviewers on your team. The Secondary Reviewer will look at your essays when they are near their final form and use tracking changes to provide insider feedback to ensure that your essays connect with the specific school as it relates to content and tone. You and your Primary Counselor will use this feedback to ensure your essays resonate with each of your target MBA programs.

Qualified Proofreader: Your qualified proofreader is a professional who edits your resume and essays. When your Primary Consultant feels that each essay is ready to submit, they will send it to the proofreader. The proofreader will do a final read for flow, grammatical errors and typos. The qualified proofreader ensures you have a polished final product by deadline and can press “submit” with confidence!
