About Manhattan Review MBA Admissions Consulting

Manhattan Review’s origin can be traced directly to an Ivy-League MBA classroom in 1999. While lecturing on advanced quantitative subjects to MBA students at Columbia Business School in New York City, Prof. Dr. Joern Meissner was asked, by his students, to assist their friends who were frustrated with available GMAT preparation options. He started to create original lectures that focused on presenting the GMAT content in a coherent and concise manner, rather than a download of voluminous basic knowledge interspersed with so-called "tricks". The new approach immediately proved highly popular with GMAT students, inspiring the birth of Manhattan Review. Over the past decade, Manhattan Review has grown into a multi-national firm, offering GMAT, GRE, LSAT, SAT, and TOEFL test prep and tutoring, and, in particular, is focusing on MBA admissions consulting and business school application advisory services.

Why Manhattan Review MBA Admissions Consulting?

Manhattan Review has assembled a team of MBA admissions counselors with unique strengths. All lead consultants are graduates themselves from top MBA programs with significant admissions committee experience. Manhattan Review’s advisory teams still draw on input from founder Prof. Meissner, who has actually chaired graduate admission committees (with his vote actually serving as tie-breaker in borderline cases) and has unique insight into the inner workings of such committees. But don't take our word for it; find out for yourself! Manhattan Review offers free admissions seminars and even a free personal consulting session, so you can talk one-on-one with our advisors without any risk.
