Headquartered in New York City, Stratus Prep has served clients from across the country and around the globe, including applicants in:
> At Stratus Prep, you work with two admissions counselors so that you have both a partner in this process and an objective, external evaluator at every step along the way (not just at the very end when it’s too late to address any areas for improvement).
> By assigning you two counselors, Stratus Prep also ensures that your application package will appeal to readers/interviewers with diverse personal and professional backgrounds.
> Stratus Prep has a proven, robust, proprietary admissions strategy methodology that will guarantee that you are most effectively marketing yourself to the schools of your choice (we believe getting into the top schools is about much more than simply drafting well-written essays). This strategy ensures critical alignment between all the facets of your application.
> None of Stratus Prep’s MBA Admissions Counselors have full-time jobs (unfortunately such moonlighting is all too common in this industry). MBA Admissions Counseling is the main source of income for all of our counselors so you are their #1 priority.
> Our counselors, most of whom are former consultants, bankers, and corporate marketers, are available in person, by phone, and via email to assist you any time.
> We strictly cap the number of clients/schools each counselor works on so that you can be sure to get the individualized attention and quick turnaround times that you deserve.
> All of our counselors are graduates themselves from top 5 MBA programs with significant admissions experience.
> Our team treats every MBA application that we work on as if it were our own; we will not rest until you and we are satisfied that there is nothing else you could possibly do to improve your chances of gaining admission to the schools of your choice.
> We are the only MBA Admissions Counseling firm to release school-by-school success rates.
