Consultant: Dia Draper

I decided in January it was the best time to go to business school and reached out to Veritas Consulting after taking the GMAT at the end of February. The application deadlines were less than a month away, so I had less than a month to prepare to retake the GMAT and complete every aspect of the application process while working 50+ hours a week. My consultant managed my expectations and was honest and upfront with me from the get go about the serious hurdles I had to overcome, including my below average age, my below average GMAT score, and the fact that I was applying in the last round. I decided to go ahead and apply, and my consultant said that if I was committed to giving it my best, she was too; she would work just as hard as me and make herself readily available since we were working with a condensed timeline. She did just that and far exceeded my expectations. She helped with narrowing down the number of schools I was applying to, with strategy (why MBA, why now, and basic info that was necessary to nail down before we moved forward), with essay editing, with my resume, with interview prep, and with other miscellaneous items and questions that came up. Her feedback turnaround was so quick but was still thorough. We came up with a game plan together and mapped out a strategy and schedule. During the whole process she reminded me to tackle one task at a time and to just keep putting one foot in front of the other.
My consultant had worked at two top MBA Programs and her knowledge about the application process was extensive and proved to be a huge asset. She took the time to get to know me and what drove me and helped pinpoint what I should emphasize in each application.
I retook the GMAT, and my score didn’t improve. However, I was so pleased with the progress my consultant and I had made on my applications that I decided to go for it. She supported me and was my biggest cheerleader during the process while simultaneously managing my expectations and providing constructive criticism on areas for improvement. Within two weeks of submitting my applications, I had been invited to interview with two of the three schools I applied to.
The interview turned out to be the most difficult part of the process for me. My consultant practiced with me on the phone, skyped with my several times, and even offered to do another mock early in the morning before my interview. I also had access to a specialist who helped with strategy. With Veritas’ help, I was able to walk into the interview prepared and confident.
I am attending my dream school in the Fall, and I believe my consultant’s guidance, feedback, and support truly helped me gain acceptance into the program. With the help of my consultant, I was able to produce applications of higher caliber in a short amount of time. She went above and beyond what I had expected. In addition to helping with various components of my application, she helped me manage stress and recommended ways to relax and stay calm. Her constant support kept me motivated and focused. I believe she truly cared about me, about how I was doing, and about how she could help. She would text me almost daily to check in on me. She provided the emotional support I needed while managing the stressful application process that I had condensed into a couple of months.
Another awesome thing about Veritas is that they don’t nickel and dime you. My consultant didn’t keep a time log and the whole team was flexible about how to create a package that worked with my time frame and that addressed all the items I needed help with. I was hesitant about the cost of a consulting service at first, but I can assure you that it is WELL worth it. I couldn’t be more pleased with the Veritas team and especially with my consultant who was there with me every step of the way.

Consultant: Rachel Shelton

I was quite skeptical about hiring a consultant for the MBA application process. However, I thought I would give it a shot. Working with Rachel Shelton from Veritas was a game changer and a huge reason for my acceptance into a top 5 business school.

Simply- she is amazing. The process is stressful but Rachel was so helpful and made it fun (as much as it can be). I've never written a review for anything or anyone is my life. I am writing this review for Veritas consulting and Rachel because they made the process and experience manageable. They are a huge reason for my acceptance.

Rachel is responsive, intelligent, and always brings a positive attitude to every conversation. She understands the application process better than many and helped me distinguish myself from other applicants. Hiring a consultant is an important part of the process. Hiring Rachel Shelton is a "no-brainer." I highly recommend her.

Two hours of admissions consulting came with my MBA prep package. Veritas pairs you up with an admissions consultant that is best able to help you based on your background, goals, and schools that you're planning to apply to.

My consultant reached out to me right after I finished my prep course. I spent a lot of time talking to her on the phone. She helped me a lot with my application strategy. It was great that she used to be on the Admissions Board of the school I was applying to. She helped me with my overall story and resume.

Basically, she was my trusted advisor that I could turn to for questions about the process and Business School in general. I highly recommend this service.

I enjoyed working with Rachel Shalton every minute on my application process. I was working on my own in the beginning of my application process and didn't have much luck. After I consult with her on my application packages, my success rate was significantly improved. I very much appreciate help help.

A couple of things that she impressed me with her work:
1. She was genuinely interested in my success. She picked the right school according to my background and interests. Unlike some other consultants, she is very nice to work with, not letting you be unrealistic about your dreams but at the same time very encouraging.
2. She was very efficient and willing to help me even I had very tight schedules. She helped me put everything together even when I only had one week before the deadline. Meanwhile, the quality of her work was great.
3. She never tries to get you spend more hours and was very professional on the job. A couple of times, she offered me very honest advises on where I should spend my time and efforts on. However, she never tried to get me spend more hours on things that are not important. The recommendations she provided was very helpful and was based on her experiences not just on "what she thinks", which made me trust her a lot.
4. She is a very nice person to work with. The entire process is based on my needs and preference. Unlike some other consultants, who might be too pushy or too slaggy. Rachel knows who she is working with and the owner owns the process.

All in all, I am very pleased with the experience I had with Rachel. Highly recommend her!!

Veritas is the BEST!!!

Consultant: Katty Ooms Sutter

I used Vertias Consulting services because I used their GMAT prep course and had very positive results. My consulting experience was no different. I hired a consultant to help me address my low GPA. My consultant was extremely helpful because she helped me create an application that focused on my strengths as opposed to my weakness. This was a different approach from what I had read on blogs.
Additionally, I am an American who was applying to an international school and it was important that my consultant had experience with international schools. My consultant has helped many students get into top international school as well as had admissions experience internationally. She also was very timely in her reviews even during peak times.
I ended up getting into my top choice and I truly believe I would not have been able to do so without the help of Veritas!! Can't recommend them enough!!

Consultant: Andreea

I hired Andreea and Veritas for the Essay consulting services. She was very thorough and provided detailed and timely feedback. I've had a great experience working with her. I will not only recommend Veritas Prep, but Andreea in particular.
In working with her I was able to identify my strengths and she helped me craft my story. The essay for the school that I worked with her on was extremely tricky; it wasn't your run of the mill standard business school essay. She helped me create a unique positioning and draft an essay which helped me stand out. I will happily recommend her to any B School applicants.

Very helpful interview prep

Consultant: Sekou White

I hired Veritas Prep for their Mock Interview Service and was matched with Sekou. Being matched with an alumni of the school who was very familiar with the specific interview process and the school's culture was extremely helpful. He was able to give a unique insight into what the admissions officers would be interested in hearing and specific areas of my background to highlight.

Before the interview prep, the consultant became familiar with my application and sent tips for the interview. This was followed by an initial call with an overview of the interview process and additional tips. The next step, the mock interview, proved extremely valuable as it helped me feel more comfortable and prepared during the actual interview and was followed by valuable feedback to improve my interviewing skill. This ultimately led to me being admitted with a scholarship. In conclusion, Sekou was always eager to answer my questions, and I highly recommend this service.

Consultant: Andreea

Veritas Prep consulting was a great help throughout my application. My consultant, Andrea, was knowledgeable about the the process. She was once a part of the admissions board at one of the schools I was applying for. Her hands on experience helped me better understand the process and what schools are looking for. With this information along with feedback from Andreea I was able to write powerful essays that I would not have been able to write otherwise. I would highly recommend Veritas Prep consulting service. Veritas Prep's staff provide great service whether it be the staff on the phone, the course professors, or their consultants. I have had a great experience from all of my dealings with Veritas Prep.

Consultant: Read Flake

I am writing this review to give my strong recommendation for the work Veritas Prep did with strengthening my business school application. They helped me with GMAT prep, essay writing, and interview practice.

I started my 6 month business school application journey as a 30 year old mid career executive with 8 years of experience in a multinational consumer goods company. I did corporate strategic planning and had the opportunity of leading project management teams from Europe and Asia. I’ve had fairly good career progression and was lucky enough to be promoted every 2 years. But for me to continue along my accelerated career path, I needed to go t business school to update my leadership and business skills with the new developments in today’s changing environment. I was fairly confident of my resume and the recommendations I would get from my bosses, but I was definitely not feeling the same way about the GMAT and stringing together my story in essays that would do justice to the work experience I’ve accumulated thus far. I wanted to try and do things on my own first before tapping consultants so I attempted to self study first and writing initial drafts of my essays. After self - studying OG and Manhattan materials for 2 months, I decided to take my first crack at the GMAT and got a measly 550. On the other hand, the challenge I faced with essay writing was determining whether the material I have written was good or not. Family, colleagues, and bosses were quick to offer to proof read but they all had different opinions. From a GMAT prep and application preparation standpoint, I felt lost on how to move forward. After consulting with past MBA alumni, I decided to go with veritas prep. Here is how they helped me with each section of my application to ensure I put forward the best possible application given my timetable.

I. GMAT PREP WITH CHRIS SPECK

My biggest frustration with OG and manhattan prep material was there barely any information on strategy and how to efficiently solve problems, both for verbal and quant sections. The solutions presented would sometimes seem even more confusing than the problems themselves and were definitely something I could NOT solve with my “understanding of basic high school math and English”. At the end of the day, if you don’t understand the solutions you will then result to brute force and just spend more time to try and solve problems or memorize the solutions. Both strategies won’t help you in a computer adaptive test that will not let you see the same problems.

Chris Speck of veritas was exactly who I needed to help me demystify the GMAT and break things down as if we were starting from scratch. He introduced me to test taking strategies and would even correct my ways of thinking and common mistakes that most GMAT test takers would make. He was also able to help me structure my study plans to make it harder working and easier to track my progress to determine whether I was getting better or not. And the guy has scored 750+ on the GMAT in recent years so you can be confident he knows his stuff.

II. ESSAY WRITING WITH READ FLAKE

I mentioned that one of the challenges I faced with essay writing was determining which feedback to take. Veritas was able to find me a consultant who was from the admissions committee of Kellogg. After Read made a thorough review of my profile, we went through my essay drafts line by line, to the point of nitpicking. I found this level of detail very useful because he was able to point out specific sentences in my essays that would have made me otherwise seem unsure, contradicting, or vague in my examples. He spent time with me to probe my story for experiences that would be useful to really bring my case to life. We did not just settle for what I had already written.

Great extra mile

Consultant: Nitin Agrawal

Booked the hourly service as I had very specific, targeted needs and questions. Thought it could be tricky as they dont commit to a deliverable but rather best efforts. But I was surprised at how efficient Nitin operated. He really gave it a lot of attention and was able to always find the right level of detail in his feedback for me to work with. They were able to perfectly adapt to your wishes and concerns so great experience overall on the coaching. When I was waitlisted at my #1 target school we also had a phone call to discuss strategy even though I had no time left in my purchased package so great extra mile.
