We read, verify and individually confirm each review

How we verify reviews

Step 1

Purshase Verification

We verify that the reviewer was a client by comparing the email address they provide with the company's database.

Step 2

Identity Verification

We verify the reviewer's identity through one of the following:

Official GMAT Score Report

GMAT Club Membership Term

School E-mail Address

(Admissions consulting only)

Step 3

We manually process all reviews, and if a review does not meet any of the prior criteria, the review will not be posted.

Step 4

We pay $20 for each GMAT Course and Admission Consultan review only if we are certain it is a real review. If we cannot verify it, we won't issue a giftcard for it and we won't publish it.

We recommend that you only rely on the verified reviews in whatever decisions you make.

Consultant: Rachel Shelton

Rachel was my Essay Excellence consultant for my first ever MBA application as well as my Full School Package consultant. When I first started working with Rachel, I literally had no idea what I was doing. I didn't know anything about the world of MBA applications, I had no personal narrative formed, I didn't even know what to write in my resume.

Working with Rachel, I wrote some of the best essays of my life - essays that were both deeply true to who I am but also sharply tailored to the schools for which they were written. In the end (and because of Rachel's expert guidance), I've received full tuition merit fellowships at BOTH of my top choice schools, one of which is is a top 5 "ivy league" school.

Here are five reasons why you need Rachel as your admissions consultant:

1) She WILL bring out the best in you, and she'll do so by truly getting to know you. Not the MBA-applicant version of you, but the REAL you. I think she may know me better than my parents at this point. Rachel really takes the time to ask insightful and thought provoking questions - questions you've likely never considered before - in order to dig deep into what makes you tick. From there, she helps you craft a personal narrative that is truly compelling, unique, and organic to who you are, which makes the entire application and interviewing process exponentially easier. And the best part is, she does all of this without being prescriptive or telling you what to say or do.

In the end, all the ideas are yours, and that is crucial to sounding authentic in your applications and interviews.

2) She is an expert when it comes to the top schools. Like I said, I had no idea what I was getting into when I began the application process. Rachel will be your guru for understanding the mindset and values of the admissions committee reviewing your application. She'll make sure that your essays strike the perfect balance between showing how you are unique, and showing how you fit in at that specific school.

In short, I felt safe in her hands, and you should too.

3) She gives excellent feedback. Her feedback is truly insightful, unbiased, and CLEAR. She also gives you just enough of a push in the right direction to give you clear guidance without pushing you too hard into ideas that aren't yours. And since she knows you so darn well, she has this amazing ability to sense when you are forcing a point in your essay that isn't right for you, and can quickly help you course-correct before you have a stress melt down.

Basically, giving feedback is an art, and Rachel is Michelangelo.

4) She teaches you how to fish. That is, she doesn't just help you write specific essays or answer individual application questions - she teaches you how to think about and approach your applications as a whole. I was able to apply what she taught me for one school to all my other applications.

If you can't afford a consultant for every school, Rachel will be your Jedi Master and teach you the ways of the force.

5) She'll go above and beyond for you, even after applications are in. My work with Rachel ended months ago, and to this day she is still there for me whenever I need her, even just to help me pick out what to wear to my interviews. In fact, I recently needed to navigate a tricky correspondence with the admissions committee of one program, and Rachel gave me some great nuanced advice on how to approach the conversation. As someone else noted on this site, she really is a god-send.

All in all, worth every single penny.

P.S. It's also worth noting that Rachel is an awesome, fun, funny person who is wonderful to talk to and easy to get along with. Working with her made the grueling MBA application journey feel infinitely less painful. A huge plus in my book.

Consultant: Dia Draper

Besides my undergraduate program, my VP consultant is the single largest purchase that I have made to date. I was terrified at the thought of spending $5,000 which amounted to a little over 90% of my savings. Veritas has been my guardian angel during this process. I would have paid double had I known the lengths that she and VeritasPrep would go.

Let me reiterate this previous point by attaching a Thank You that I had written to Veritas about half way through the process: "I wanted to reiterate my thank you from earlier. My biggest fear going into this was not connecting with my consultant more deeply than a surface level; I would be yet another client among hundreds, and I'd be treated as a business transaction (understandably so).

I don't expect people to care as much as I do about this- this is much more to me than "I got into a top school!" It's the opportunity to look my mother in the eyes and tell her that everything is going to be okay, and the ability to look at myself in a mirror and whisper, "I did it."

Your passion is evident and I feel genuinely cared for. No matter the outcome of this journey, thank you."

I left this process with a much better understanding of who I am and what I want, and that is invaluable. Veritas has grown to be much more than a consultant and has inspired me to be a better person. I can not thank her enough, and I can not thank VP enough for putting us in touch and their continued support.

Consultant: Andreea

Andreea was my Head Consultant and guided me in applying to four schools. I considered myself well-prepared for this process before signing up with Veritas a few months before R1 deadlines, but I think that working with Andreea was a fantastic experience that took my applications to the next level. Her feedback was always prompt, detailed, and very constructive, and helped me present the best version of myself in my applications. In particular, I appreciated having Andreea to brainstorm essay ideas with, and her assessment of my strengths and weaknesses was very valuable. Another great thing about working with Andreea is that she was very organized and kept me on schedule in the weeks leading up to the deadlines, which is incredibly helpful for someone with a very busy work schedule.

I had initially signed up for a 3-school package and thought I would apply to the fourth on my own, but once I started working with Andreea I knew that I could craft a significantly better application with her feedback and added another school to my consulting package. If you're on the fence about Veritas because you think you're sufficiently prepared, I'd still recommend the service - Andreea's guidance has made a significant difference, and I ended up submitting four applications I was really proud of.

Consultant: Larry Sochrin

Veritas Prep has played a huge part in my MBA applications this year. I had explored several options before deciding to go with them and boy that was one of the best decisions in my life.

I opted for the 3-school package and was immediately set up with Larry Sochrin, my head consultant. Larry is just the best in the business.

He is extremely patient. On an average, an applicant goes through 3 iterations of their MBA essays with their consultant. I averaged 5. Reading and re-reading 5 drafts of a school's essay demands a tremendous amount of patience, which Larry exhibited.

He knows the admissions process in and out. He was instrumental in helping me portray the factors that made me unique, through my essays.

He ensures that his clients are comfortable throughout the admissions process. I prefer talking on the phone with an expert when I'm absolutely stuck, as opposed to communicating through e-mails. Larry always offered to talk to me over the phone whenever I needed help. That is a luxury that not many consultants provide.

Veritas Prep has a systematic approach to consulting. First you talk with an alumnus from the school that you are applying to prior to writing your essays. Then you work with a lead consultant on your essays. Next the alumnus reads your essay and provides a feedback. Then the final application is read by a director, who has real world experience in B-school admissions at the top B-schools. Veritas Prep provides several pairs of experts' eyes on your application.

In the ultra-competitive B-school admissions process these days, seeking experts' opinion is indispensable. I highly recommend Veritas Prep's consulting service to all business school applicants.

Wish you all the best!

Consultant: Neil Chong

Neil was extremely helpful during my MBA application process. I was looking for someone to help improve my essays and resume at the very last minute and he was available in short notice. First off, even though he was helping me by the hour, he went above and beyond to make sure my essay and resume was perfect. We went through multiple iterations of both my essays and resume in just about a weeks time. In fact, he caught several mistakes that would have for sure doomed my application. I am confident that his help really solidified my application and allowed me to represent myself in the strongest way possible. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to apply for a top tier business school.

Consultant: Paul Dembowski

I signed up for the three hour consultation package at Veritas Prep. I am early in the application phase so I thought I could benefit from a detailed assessment.

I was paired with Paul who was awesome throughout the entire process. He took time to review all my materials and resume. We had a detailed email exchange about the agenda of the call prior to the call. This allowed him to come prepared and maximize the value he could deliver. I would definitely recommend him since he goes beyond what is required. Even though we deviated from the MBA admissions process, at my request, Paul was very accommodating and found ways to match my needs.

Consultant: Andreea

I worked with Andreea from Veritas Prep. As the Head Consultant she helped me with applications for four business schools. I had a great experience working with her. She was brilliant for the following reasons:

1. Very timely and responsive to emails
2. Well informed about all schools. She knew the culture and the fit
3. Very very structured in thinking. That helped sharpen the essay and resume
4. Never changed the tone or voice of the essay and allowed my voice to shine well
5. Helped to highlight different aspects of the profile well across all parts of the application

I would highly recommend her!

Consultant: Marcus Dahllof

I have to say, working with Veritas was a great decision. Everyone I dealt with was extremely helpful throughout the process. In particular, my head consultant Marcus was a superstar. Marcus pushed me to dig deeper with his comments and questions and I believe that the end result was a far better application than what I would have otherwise ended up with. When we fell behind, Marcus made sure to get my essays back to me within 24 hours to make sure we met all deadlines. He was also helpful with answering all my questions (stupid or otherwise). My school specialists Caleb and Michelle were also great people that added value to my application. I highly recommend working with Veritas.

Consultant: Andreea

During these past weeks I had the pleasure of working with Andreea, who was absolutely exceptional and turned my application process into a smooth ride.

Right from the beginning, she proposed an excellent structure and timeline. Furthermore, despite the fact that she was probably very busy with other applicants as well, I always felt that she was there for me on a perpetual basis.

However, what I liked most about working with Andreea, was that no matter how well I thought I was doing, Andreea would always continue motivating me to push myself even further to really squeeze out all of my potential. Whether or not I am finally accepted by one of the business schools I am applying to, this investment was certainly worth it; I genuinely feel that the support provided by Veritas in general, and Andreea in particular, has been absolutely crucial and useful.

Andreea, you are the best!

Consultant: Jen Tutak

If you’re like I was, you’re more than willing to pay the cost of an admissions consultant service to build a stronger B-school application, but are skeptical if the service is worth it. After taking a GMAT course with Veritas Prep., which was an outstanding course that enabled me to earn a much higher score than I had anticipated, I decided to give them my business as an MBA admissions consultant customer.

Jen Tutak was my head consultant, and she is amazing at what she does! I worked with her for over four months on two of my MBA applications. She provided me with a wealth of experiential insights every step of the way. My resume became polished, my three essays read more relevantly to admissions personnel, and realistic mock-interviews with extensive feedback helped me strengthen weak interviewing skills. The amount and quality of guidance and feedback I received was a game-changer for my application. By implementing Jen’s feedback, I was able to not only better tailor my application to highlight strengths, but also learn a bit about myself and what direction I really wanted to pursue with business school.

Jen made herself available at times that were convenient for me via phone, email, and Skype. Jen was professional, friendly, and positive throughout the application and interview process, which helped me genuinely believe that I had a strong application. Her team mentality and coaching were no doubt major reasons why I was admitted into MIT Sloan’s class of 2018!

I highly recommend working with Veritas Prep. and Jen Tutak for anyone seeking admissions consulting services. It was truly a five-star experience!
