Accepted to Stanford GSB, Northwestern Kellogg, and Yale SOM
I had a great time working with Chris! I partnered with him exclusively for my business school applications, defining my goals, selecting schools, brainstorming essay topics, crafting my resume, and completing several other components of the application together.
What I really loved about working with Chris was that he always believed in me as a candidate, and yet gave constructive feedback without hesitation. He also pushed me when it was required and ensured that I was thoroughly prepared for interviews. He put in a lot of work to understand which programs I was applying to and gave very specific feedback on essays.
I would definitely recommend Chris to anyone who wishes to apply to business school!

I heard about Chris through a friend, and one thing my friend mentioned is that Chris becomes a very integral part of the entire application journey. And I couldn’t agree more. Chris was very insightful and went into every detail of my application. His guidance really helped me introspect and shape the story I wanted to tell the admissions committee. I believe my resume and essays underwent no fewer than seven iterations each, and Chris was very patient through all of them! I had a great time working with him.

Chris was extremely helpful in applying to MBA programs. He was very thoughtful in his approach and helped me to really dig deep and think thoroughly about my story. He asked the probing questions I needed to reflect critically about my upbringing and personality, and how these different life experiences have shaped me. Chris’ help framing my story made it much easier to communicate why business school was so important for me and my career goals, so much so that my acceptance letter from Chicago Booth actually had a handwritten note from the admissions team thanking me for such a thoughtful and vivid story. I strongly believe that without Chris’ help, I would have had a much harder time thinking through my narrative and the aspects of my life that were most important to highlight for the admissions committee.
In addition to being very insightful and a great coach throughout the process, Chris was approachable and made me feel very comfortable putting myself out there to him. I trusted all of Chris’ advice, and working with him put me at ease during what would have otherwise been a much more stressful process.
Accepted to Chicago Booth
I got into the school of my dreams, and Chris was instrumental in making that happen. From the onset, Chris brought to the table a very positive attitude, a creative mindset that drew out interesting details while maintaining the broader vision of the essay(s), and a fresh perspective on the MBA community and curriculum. He served as the anchor during all the moving pieces of my MBA applications and the very demanding nature of my job. He also provided a lot of moral support throughout the entire process, allowing me to submit the best possible package for each application.
Another insight I had from interacting with Chris is how to manage my time most effectively, and he portrayed how a successful admit should perform after matriculating at a top business school. The GMAT and MBA application process are the “appetizers” to what your two years will be, during which time you’ll constantly be having to fulfill multiple commitments without compromising the quality of any event or interaction. He, indirectly, prepared me to fully take advantage and enjoy all the opportunities at Chicago Booth, and for that, I am truly grateful.
Even until today, we still keep in touch. He is a good mentor and friend. I give my highest recommendation to Chris for any person looking to apply to a top business school.

Having Chris as an admissions consultant was great. Initially, I was wary that having an admissions consultant wouldn’t have a significant effect on my MBA applications, but it was the total opposite, and I thank Chris for that. Since our first contact and throughout the process, Chris always behaved professionally and was able to quickly build rapport with me. This allowed us to create psychological safety, and it was crucial as Chris diligently questioned my reasons for getting an MBA as well as the stories that I wanted to convey to the admissions team. After going through my essays and resume multiple times, Chris always provided thoughtful comments, insights, and honest feedback, which pushed me to continuously improve the documents. He was able to pinpoint which areas needed more work, and we were able to collaborate closely to craft a better story that was precise, concise, and impactful. Chris was always transparent on the turnaround time for each of the documents, and even as deadlines loomed, he always delivered them on time and constantly kept me posted on his progress.
Looking back, Chris was not only an admissions consultant, but also a partner who helped me achieve a great milestone in my career. Chris’ continuous support and encouragement were crucial in my MBA admission because he always provided me with peace of mind during a high-stakes process. That’s why I fully endorse Chris as an MBA admissions consultant; I’m confident future MBA candidates will benefit from Chris’ professionalism, knowledge, experience, and candid feedback.

Chris was my application consultant during the 2017-18 admission cycle and a key reason why I gained acceptance to multiple upper-tier MBA programs. He helped me through the entire application process, from developing my brand to the admissions interviews. He was very responsive to all my questions and returned each round of resume/essay edits back to me in a timely manner. Chris brought to life many aspects on my application that helped me stand out among my peers; he is very gifted writer. However, the part that stood out to me the most was how honest and respectful Chris was during the entire process, and I feel lucky to have run across him. He showed his true character when he helped me navigate the waitlist and edited an additional essay for a school after I had already gained acceptance to another one of my top choices. He genuinely wanted to see me succeed. I would recommend him to anyone who might be looking to hire an application consultant.
Accepted to IESE
Chris had a good feeling for the subtle points in my background and experience that could make me stand out in the application process. When reviewing my CV and essays, he could always find a more impactful way to put my ideas on paper. I was admitted to my first choice school with one interview and no assessment day, and at the interview the admissions team told me they had been impressed by my essays.
