This review is for: Veritas Prep Hourly Packages | Consultant: Nitin Agrawal

- Did you enjoy the process? - Was it stressful?
After completing my GMAT test and getting a good score of 740 in September 2015, I mulled over applying for full time MBA programs. Doing the online search made me very confused and I found it very challenging to understand how I was to present my essays and applications. I spent all of October and November in this confusion and finally decided that I needed professional help to tackle the admissions process.

- Were they helpful?
After the initial phone call with Veritas Prep, I was very impressed with how they honed down on the items that I would need help on. What I particularly liked about Veritas Prep is their many consultants that they have available and their ability to match candidates with a suitable consultant. When they chose Nitin Agrawal as my consultant, I was amazed how much he could bring to the table, having had an international upbringing like me as well as being in the energy industry similar to me.

- Did they meet your expectations? Why or why not?
I bought the 7-hour package for applying to 4 schools in round 2. Nitin's cut to the chase approach was really helpful to me. In my first one hour, I realized that I had to start with my end goal. Nitin told me a few techniques on how to narrow down my options. He gave me tips to research MBA schools. Based on this one hour conversation, I researched the top MBA schools and applying my decision criteria, chose the 4 schools to apply.

After a couple more phone conversations and some work on my part, I was ready to tackle the essays. Though Nitin was traveling at the time, he found time to fully support and provide timely responses. All in all he made the process very smooth and stress free.

Veritas Prep also has customized school guides that were really beneficial in getting an insider look on the culture and criteria for each school.

- Would you recommend them? Why or why not?
I would certainly recommend Nitin as well as Vertias Prep to anyone considering applying to MBA schools. The MBA admissions process is very complex. Having professional help greatly simplifies this and takes the stress out.

- What was their greatest strength?
Their greatest strength was understanding what I was missing in the process and providing the very specific requirements to get the application done. Nitin was very effective in his support and with a lot of effort on my part I only needed the 7 hours to complete the applications.

- What was their weakest skill?
I think because we were both travelling at the time and I bought the 7-hour package, time keeping was a little tricky. However, Nitin more than accommodated me for the required hours.

This review is for: Veritas Prep Hourly Packages | Consultant: Rachel Shelton

Rachel Shelton is incredible advisor! She has the experience, knowledge, and insight to know exactly what each school is looking for in a potential candidate. She will gently guide you in the right direction if your essays are going off course, while encouraging you to push yourself out of your comfort zone. She does not let up on you which is exactly what you need from an advisor if you have any hope of getting into a top MBA program. She was very responsive to all my questions, and turned my essays around with her feedback and edits very quickly. She also has a great sense of humor and is a pleasure to deal with.

During the interview prep portion of my package, she really focused on getting me ready for questions she knew the admissions committee would ask me. Because of this prep, I felt very relaxed during my interview having already gone over all the exact questions with Rachel already.

Do yourself a favor if considering hiring an admissions consultant: Go to the Veritas Prep web-site and request Rachel Shelton. It will be money well spent!

This review is for: Veritas Prep Hourly Packages | Consultant: Dozie Azotam

Last days of december and the Round 2 deadlines were just a week away. As a non native english speaker I felt my writing needed some checking so just a couple of days before christmas I hired Veritas Prep Essay excellence service. I was not sure what to expect - after all this was the most busy time of the year in the MBA application season and probably there were dozens of others like me trying to get the best of their applications with just days to go.

Veritas assigned me one of the best consultants I could have ever worked with - Dozie Azotam. Dozie managed to be always available, even while on a busy schedule like the holiday season. His structured, no bull***, up to the point approach let me cut right into the chase and craft some extremely poilished writing.

His insights were crucial in order to give my essays the necessary structure to be coherent, sound and at the same time, maximize space with a very restrictive word count for my essays.

Dozie was readly available even through the busy holiday schedule and was extremely helpful not only with the essays - he also gave me wonderful insights about my resume and my overall application. While I am still waiting for the results of my applications, I can be rest assured that the essay portion are up to notch thanks to Dozie and Veritas. I would deeply recommend their services to anyone who wants to present a top notch essay.

This review is for: Veritas Prep School Packages | Consultant: Montu Gupta

I really enjoyed the admissions process with my head consultant Montu from Veritas Prep. He did an excellent job of helping me perfect the essays and prepare the interview process effectively. I would definitely recommend him to any of my friends.

Montu always make himself available on short notice during the busy holiday seasons, helping me send the best possible version of my applications.

Lastly when i was debating which school to enroll, Montu provided me a comprehensive pro&con analysis based on his professional knowledge on MBA and gave the best possible solution to decide the school that fits me the best.

This review is for: Veritas Prep School Packages | Consultant: Read Flake

My experience with Read and Veritas Prep was absolutely fantastic. They started me off by giving access to very extensive 30 page reports of all the top schools. This way I could thoroughly review the schools before deciding on which ones are the best fit. Once I decided on schools I was matched with Read. Read was extremely helpful in guiding me through the process. He gave me feedback while I was crafting my own personal journey to an MBA and also helped me recognize other traits and stories that I may have overlooked. He helped me weave together all of my professional and personal experience into a strong and compelling story. During the essay process I would email read edits and ask questions at all times during the day and night and would get a prompt and thorough response. Once Read and I felt that my essays were very strong Veritas matched me with a school specific consultant who helped me cater my essays to that school specifically and make it even stronger and more powerful. I am very happy that I chose Veritas. The true power of Veritas isn't just a great structure but more so the people that guide you throughout the process.

This review is for: Veritas Prep School Packages | Consultant: Read Flake

Read did an excellent job of helping me hone my application essays and present the best story possible for each of my applications. He was always able to make himself available under tight deadlines and provide specific feedback and advice on how to improve my work.

Veritable Prep has a very helpful Dashboard on their website to help track your progress through your applications. It's well designed and technology forward, making collaboration with your adviser even easier.

Working with Read made me more confident in my applications and the soon to arrive responses. I'm hoping to hear back from them soon.

Great Experience with Veritas February 01 | 2016

This review is for: Veritas Prep School Packages | Consultant: Read Flake

I had a great experience with Veritas and my consultant Read for a few different reasons. First, I loved VERITAS's structure, with a dedicated consultant and school specific specialists that help along the way. Second, the accumulated knowledge of the whole firm was evident. Finally, having a final review by a former admissions director was invaluable insight into myself as a candidate. Read specifically was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. His turnaround time was never more than 24 hours and was often much faster. I was worried that using a consultant might take my unique "voice" away, but Read did an incredible job of bringing out MY best in an application. In addition, my two specialists were incredibly knowledgeable with school specifics and really added value to the work I completed with Read. The mock interview was very helpful as well. Overall I would strongly recommend Veritas and Read.

This review is for: Veritas Prep School Packages | Consultant: Nitin Agrawal

I chose Veritas to guide me through the admissions process after a friend got admitted to three top business schools after using their services.

The way Veritas works is perfect, you have a Head Consultant (in my case, Nitin Agrawal) who has the responsibility of reading your essays and helping you choose your best stories among the many you may pre-select for using to your essays

Nitin has heen more than a consultant, but a friend in this long and demanding process. He not only helped me with his thorough questioning of my sometimes lost ideas, but also helped me put myself together when I got tired and lost, with supporting words and efficient plans to take me out of dead ends. I got amazed by how well Nitin can read something and ask a perfect question about something that is missing on the text.

Then you have the School Specialists, who are the ones that focus on a particular school and only interact with you during the essay reviewing of a given school. Each specialist comes with a different point of view and questions that make you think of even more aspects of your application and how your stories would better fit each school style

I really recommend Veritas and Nitin!

Tks a lot for everything

This review is for: Veritas Prep School Packages | Consultant: Bryant

As an international student, I wasn't sure that getting consulting services. The price was a HUGE trade-off, but today I know it was the best decision.

Bryant was very professional since day one. He is very interested in the person, he listens to you and helps you develop the best strategy for B-school app according to the person, not what "everybody says is best".

I got the service in Christmas Holidays and Bryant was 24/7 available for whatever I needed. He was very helpful in every single stage of the process… from the brainstorming until the proofreading and final touches. He never gave me no for answer.

The school specialists were very helpful too. They didn’t just give me feedback, but also helped me improving the essays and developing the ideas according to each school insights.

The virtual director process was very valuable because it was very objective. In my case, one of my Directors reviewed with me the entire application and helped me improve it with her experience in Ad Com.

Thanks to Bryant and Veritas, today I am a proud Yale SOM MBA student!

This review is for: Veritas Prep School Packages | Consultant: Bryant

Being a re-applicant I wanted to make sure that this time things turned out differently. So I decided to go ahead with some consulting and now I am sure it’s totally worth the price. I had a tight time-frame and with the holidays in between, but the results were still amazing. Bryant was very professional and helpful during the whole way, starting in getting to know my story, diving into last year’s applications and very helpful in the brainstorming sessions as well as proofreading all the copies until I got things right.

The whole system that Veritas prep has with the head consultant, school specialists and directors gets you not only one opinion, but a great array of opinions based on the different experiences. I found it very beneficial and would say it’s one of the great strengths of this consulting program. At the end of the day when I sent my applications I can say they were much better than what I could have done on my own, greatly improving the chances of acceptance and exceeding my expectations.

I strongly recommend the Veritas Prep school package and Bryant as head consultant.
