I don’t know how I can thank Farrell enough: I have been admitted with a scholarship to Wharton with no GMAT!
When I first start preparing my GMAT and researching business schools, I was quite confident. After completing my master’s in Aerospace Engineering, as a foreign student in the US, I went on to work for a top aviation company in NYC, filling a role generally reserved for engineers almost twice my age. On top of that, I had a leadership position in a non-profit organization. Quite a rare profile in this business world!
Well, I could not get above 650 on the GMAT and, after calling dozens of prep coaches, none of them believed in me. They all told me that the top 10 was out of my league.
I was devastated until I met Farrell. Farrell is the only one who believed in me. First, she spent hours learning about me, to make sure I chose schools that fit me, and also, where the adcom would appreciate my international background the most. Honestly, this is probably the most important part of the application process and most students neglect it. It is the step that will make your profile unique for a particular program.
As you know, the process is extremely long and tiring and you will need someone you can trust to go through this with. For over 8 months (from our free consultation to interviews), Farrell was like either my mom or my bestie. She was making sure I kept myself on track and she was constantly sending me information to make sure I was choosing the right thing for me. She advised me to attend specific events, read articles or watch videos to research schools, so I could create a good fit between my qualifications and what the school valued. She literally thought about everything.
Not only did Farrell support me for “deliverable” part of the application (essays, resume, etc), but she also provided me with moral support. When I was crying and wanted to give up, she comforted me and helped me focus on the next step I needed to take.
I took the GMAT several times during our engagement and despite my inability achieve a competitive GMAT score, Farrell made sure I would not lose hope. If you want to have someone to support you in all the different domains, I could not recommend Farrell strongly enough. Despite her website, which might be not be as flashy as those of her competitors, the work she delivers is for sure way more valuable than any of those companies trying to sell you a “customized application.” I honestly and sincerely don’t think that you could find someone as dedicated as Farrell, it is impossible!
Farrell also knows all the “hidden tips and tricks” to make your application successful. She advised me to take the GRE, despite my reluctance, and apply to Wharton Lauder, an international joint degree program at Wharton, to increase my chances. Nothing was forgotten! Even for the interview Farrell spent several hours to coach me on my expressions, tone, hand gestures, eye contact…it was amazing!
Few months ago, I was admitted to Wharton…I can’t believe it! After 8 months of labor, sweat, and tears…I owe everything to Farrell, and I will share this joy with her forever. Thank you Bestie!
If you are afraid to jump into this, spend one or two hours with her to see what I am talking about, or you can contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you about the best of Miss Farrell.
