Below are reflections from just one of Emily’s recent clients:
Accepted to Wharton
I truly believe that working with Emily is the foremost reason I was selected to interview and ultimately gained acceptance to Wharton.
First, she took the time to deeply understand my background and motivators, which proved essential in crafting my narrative. Then, throughout the application process Emily acted as a strategic partner kindly presenting new perspectives and unique insights. As a particularity skilled writer, she always provided the highest quality edits with exceptionally fast turnaround time.
Her encouragement and expertise allowed me to construct essays I never thought I was capable of writing. Finally, Emily’s knowledge on each top MBA program, specifically how to tailor the individual applications was crucial to receiving interview invitations. I can confidently say that Emily has the skill and experience to dramatically help candidates achieve admission to any top program.
Accepted to Columbia Business School
I am so happy with my decision to work with Emily on my application to business school. I knew I was a competent candidate with a strong professional background, but I was worried about overcoming my below average GMAT score for the school I was targeting (CBS). Thanks to Emily’s guidance, essay reviews and experience with working in business school admissions, I was able to get into my top choice school!
Emily really added value in advising me on how to structure my essays to tell my story in a way that would make me distinct. She was always quick with reviewing drafts and sending detailed comments back to me. Our sessions on the phone would be about brainstorming ideas of themes I could use that would make me stand out to the admissions committee, and Emily was always patient and very knowledgeable in answering my questions about the admissions process as well. I strongly believe that it is due to my essay responses that I got accepted into CBS, and would not have been able to do it without Emily’s insight and guidance. I highly recommend Emily to anyone looking for help to differentiate themselves and to get their application to the level where admissions to top schools will become a reality.
Accepted to Columbia Business School
I cannot recommend Emily enough for MBA applicants!
She is a wealth of information and experience and she provides smart and strategic counsel on all aspects of the application process. Emily sees the value in being yourself as you apply for the programs, so when giving feedback she takes time to understand your background, helping unlock the best version of yourself. Emily provides feedback remarkably quick – she’s very easy to work with. We had an hourly engagement and I found her to be incredibly efficient with how she used the time.
Upon considering applying for MBA programs, I was very scared and unsure of myself – especially because I only wanted to attend a top school. MBA Prep School was one of my first calls and I was pleasantly surprised at how encouraging and positive they were given I did not have a traditional background for an MBA applicant. The encouragement I received from them was instrumental in me actually applying and I would encourage anyone to do a free consultation as you never know what it will lead to!
