Diane is an amazing MBA coach. She’s very professional and experienced with mock interviews. While I had no prior experience with US school applications and very limited time for preparation due to banking job nature, Diane did a terrific job in terms of conducting the interviews and giving detailed constructive feedback on my answers. She’s very familiar what the school is looking for and steering me through the confusion and unknowns. She also has a great personal character, always patient and easy to work with. We sometimes chatted about the emotional stress during applications and she was able to offer great advice as well. In addition, she also provided valuable advice on my career development, given I am interested in the media industry and she has prior experience in this field. We became great friends and I give her lots of credit for making my HBS dream happen!

Working with Diane has been an incredible journey! Not only was she knowledgeable about the admissions process, but was also able to help me be the person I wanted to present the schools that I applied to. Diane is patient and pushed me to reflect so that I am able to tell my story in a compelling and persuasive manner. She helped me develop a target list of schools based on my interests and reviewed each draft of my essays – and got back to me quickly so that I was not left waiting. I strongly recommend Diane as an admissions consultant and her suggestions and expertise ultimately allowed me to be accepted to a top 10 MBA. I feel fortunate to have her guidance throughout the stressful process and she remains someone I know I can trust.

The way that Diane helped me was more than simply reviewing my writing and giving advice for my interview. I truly felt that Diane was selfless and generous in sharing her valuable insights on what it took to stand out as a candidate. Her tip on how to stay confident yet calm during interviews is something I still benefit from today and use at many important occasions. Ask her for her secret if you’re ever fortunate to work with her!
Being an extremely good writer, Diane was great at helping me review my application from the admission committee’s perspective. One can easily get lost while drafting their personal statement; Diane was well versed with how to determine the best direction for my case that would highlight my strengths.
As an international student, many times I was not confident when applying to the schools in the US. I was much relieved when I got to work with Diane, as she had great knowledge on what qualities in a candidate were sought after in the US educational system, and what resources students could go after to support themselves academically and financially–her own blinding resume being the greatest testimony! More importantly, Diane has unparalleled understanding of diverse culture from her own life experiences, which made it an easy and trusting process working with her, and strongly helped turn my cultural background into an advantage for my application. I would not have gotten the admission if it hadn’t been for Diane’s help, and I highly recommend working with her!
