In September 2014, Mariah was hired as an editor by one of the top MBA admissions consulting firms after earning one of the highest scores in the company’s 12-year history on their essay editing test for potential hires. Even though she was the least experienced MBA admissions editor on their 2014-2015 team, she was recognized as one of the two best members out of nine professionals.
Mariah moved to MBA Prep School in 2015, where she quickly became a resource for consultants who needed a second opinion on a particularly challenging essay, or wanted a sense of whether their client’s essay stood out among other applicants’ materials. In three years, Mariah has edited over 200 applications for clients who were admitted to MBA and EMBA programs at Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Columbia, Booth, MIT Sloan, and many of the other T-25 business schools.
In addition to admissions consulting, Mariah has professional experience in biotech, health care, writing, and marketing, and she is interested in entrepreneurial endeavors that improve access to education. Mariah holds a bachelor’s degree from Swarthmore College.

Mariah reviewed and edited my essay for my MBA application and did an amazing job! I sent in my first draft of my essay that had a convoluted story with weak premises relating to my career goals. Mariah went well beyond fixing grammatical errors by combing the story making the essay much more rich and convincing. The suggestions by Mariah were extremely compelling and thorough throughout the document. However, essay edits were not the only thing impressive, she researched my targeted school deadline and completed the project ahead of schedule so that I could update the essay with her recommendations. Her communication was outstanding and she took obvious care in her work. I would definitely recommend MBA Prep School to anyone needing their essay revised or edited. 5/5 Stars!
