Hi sunshine87,

Your candidacy is impressive. One thing I want to stress upon is to not underestimate the importance of your personal essays and recommendations. The other parts of your application look great.

I also recommend you read this case study of a female candidate we worked with who was accepted into Harvard Business School and the Stanford GSB: http://www.stacyblackman.com/comprehens ... ies/case4/

If you are interested, we do provide free 30 minute phone consultations here: http://www.stacyblackman.com/contact/


Best,

Conrad and the Stacy Blackman Team
