This review is for:  MBA Admissions Consulting   Consultant:  Natalie Epstein
I worked with Natalie from Accepted.com and had an incredible experience. I highly recommend working with her!

I had free consultations, basically interviews, with 8 different firms. Each lasted 45-60 minutes, but the content varied greatly from conversations regarding a firm or consultant's general approach, to outlining a list of schools and an application strategy, and everything between. Some of the firms will match you with your actual consultant before the initial conversation, while others will tell you that you need to be evaluated before you are matched (or, in some cases, given a few consultant options to choose from).

In my case, I spoke with Natalie directly. Accepted was the last firm that I spoke with, and had pretty much already made up my mind on another consultant, until I spoke with her, and immediately knew that she was the one. Not only did our personalities mesh well, but she demonstrated an incredibly intimate knowledge of the admissions process and the interworkings of adcoms at top-tier schools.

I purchased a 6-school comprehensive package, and hit the ground running. The value that I received from Natalie went far beyond simply editing my essays; we worked on finalizing my school list, updating my resume, crafting my story/brand, each individual school's specific essays, mocked my video essays, mocked my interviews, etc, etc etc. She assisted and provided valuable insight into every single step of the process. In addition, her knowledge of the process saved me an enormous amount of time that would have otherwise been spent researching specific questions that Natalie could simply answer off of the top of her head.

Of course, results are the most important factor, and I have been thrilled with the outcome of my applications thus far. I have several top programs to choose from for R1, and still have two R2 application decisions to look forward to!

Overall, incredible experience, and worth every penny. I doubt I would be in the incredible situation that I am in without the help of Natalie and Accepted!

This review is for:  MBA Essay Editing   Consultant:  Jennifer Bloom
I absolutely loved working with Jennifer Bloom! Jennifer has a wealth of experience and it shows in her high-quality edits, quick turnarounds, and helpful advice. Her 15+ years of admissions consulting experience and passion for writing are really what sets her apart from those who may have graduated from H/S/W, but don't have much experience in admissions consulting and an interest in writing. I appreciated her honesty, support and warmth as I put my materials together. Highly-encourage those seeking a strong,​ ​value-added partnership to work with Jennifer​ ​at Accepted.​ ​It was a great decision on my part, and I have her to thank as I begin the next journey in my life at​ ​Wharton.

She have helped me to get into one of the top 10 MBA in the nation and I truly appreciate for her caring atttiude, energy and professional serivices that she have prepared me in this journey.

Natalie basically tansformed me from a raw material into a presentable statue. My background is Ivy League, medium-ranked GPA, 720 GMAT, 2+ yrs I-banking experience in New York.

This review is for:  MBA Essay Editing   Consultant:  Cindy Tokumitsu
Let me tell you a little background. I am Senior Project Manager with Citibank Singapore. I took about two week's time to write my final drafts. The first company I thought of hiring to work on my drafts is a local Singapore admissions consulting. When they came to know that I was running late to meet the application deadline, they hiked their prices by 100%. When I was on the phone with the company's director I somehow had the feeling that something isn't right. However I thought of giving them a benefit of doubt. However when I reached their local office, I was convinced that I am making the right decision by not engaging them. And then I found this article which echoed the promise to get the job done. This article is written by Cindy Tokumitsu.

Feedback on Cindy for hourly services (accepted.com)
Ohh what can I say about Cindy. I called her on Tuesday evening with a plan to meet the deadline of Friday. It was overseas call and most of my interactions with Cindy were over the emails. She was able to review and critique my essays. Being able to grasp things effortlessly on the emails is a bridge few could cross. While working with Cindy I got used to her style of working. I learnt that she is a morning person. So most of the drafts I have sent to her were by 6:00 PM Singapore time which is 6:00 AM New York time. She took care to inform me about her schedules before hand so that my timelines would not be impacted. I enjoyed working with her immensely and I am completely satisfied with her work. These proud emotional moments, of being admitted to the Booth program, which I am experiencing now is the result of my hard work and invaluable insights provided by Cindy on my essays. I wish her the very best.

This review is for:  MBA Admissions Consulting   Consultant:  Jennifer Bloom
As an international student outside of the US, I had little inside information about the MBA admissions process and felt kind of overwhelmed at the idea of trying to get all the important information on my own. After struggling for a couple of months on my own, I found Accepted and signed up for a consultation package after an initial phone consultation with Ms. Linda Abraham. She signed me up with Jennifer who guided me through the entire process brilliantly. She replied to every single one of my hundreds of questions, day in and day out within 24-35 hours without fail and I was able to put together an application that reflected my strengths in the best possible light.

I ended up gaining admission to every one of my top choice schools and ultimately accepted an offer from the program of my top choice, Chicago Booth. Now I'm happily looking forward to the first semester this autumn. I would strongly recommend Accepted - and Jennifer - to anyone who needs detailed guidance on how to plan and fill out an MBA application.

The reviewer was admit to the schools that they applied to:  Yes - school of my dreams
This review is for:  MBA Admissions Consulting   Consultant:  Natalie Epstein
I was a re-applicant after being weight-listed at three top schools last year, but receiving no acceptance.

In my first conversation with Linda, she wanted to learn more about me and asked to see copies of my submissions from last year. Knowing which schools I was targeting (MIT Sloan, Booth, Wharton), she put me in touch with the consultant she felt could most help me, Natalie.

From the start Natalie was honest and really got to know who I was. After reviewing my previous submission, and talking multiple times, she identified numerous ways that I could enhance my application. As part of helping me craft an application that highlighted my attributes, we redesigned the layout of my resume and optimized my essay topics to present me in the most well-rounded way.

My favourite thing about Natalie is that she is very strict on the ethical boundaries of offering advice but not taking over the application. This allowed me to focus on what makes me unique, without having to form fit my stories to a predefined template. Her best advice would push me to emphasize a point that I had only previously briefly mentioned, thereby livening up my stories.

She is very responsive to email and took extra time to prep me for the interviews via Skype. The process is hard and certainly not for people wanting essays written for them, but if you expect the best from yourself then Natalie will help you achieve it. The results speak for themselves as I with be attending MIT Sloan.

I have already recommended Natalie to two other applicants, both of which I know spoke to her and appreciated the insight she brings to the process.

I suggest everyone at least talk to Linda at Accepted.com before making a choice on admissions consultants.
