I used Tyler Cormney at MBA Prep school and was extremely happy with my experience.

The business school application process can be daunting, including the process of choosing a consultant! Tyler stood out to me because of his extensive experience and more importantly RESULTS. Tyler came highly recommended by friends who were successful as a result of Tyler’s help. During my initial consultation, I appreciated that Tyler was realistic about my candidacy. I felt like he saw possible pitfalls and solutions that other consultants missed.

I was not disappointed. In regards to my essays, Tyler was able to help me pick apart major events in my life and narrow in on an interesting theme, which I believe helped me stand out from the pack. Not only did he provide great advice on the application, but he also provided a much-needed push when I started to get worn-out. I felt like he was personally invested in helping me get into my dream school, Harvard Business School! Make an investment in Tyler. You will have the peace of mind of knowing that you are putting your best foot forward with your applications.

After a lot of research, I decided to go with MBAPrepAdvantage and couldn’t be happier with my decision. I chose MBAPrepAdvantage for several reasons... The founder Michael Cohan worked directly with me eliminating the concern I had related to being staffed with a consultant who had little experience. His quick responsiveness helped me manage the process. Michael genuinely cared about my success. He helped me improve my essays. He questioned how I thought and gave me guidance on how to improve my profile. His knowledge of my space and schools was remarkable. He motivated me to put together a complete package that accurately represented my life priorities and career goals. He was also instrumental in the overall strategy of the application process. With his help I was accepted into a top 5 program despite a low GMAT.


Please share proofs such as invoice and Admit mail with us in order to validate your claim. It's a part of our club's policy for the sake of the members and transparency.

You may PM me.

"The team at Fortuna were just fantastic. I've worked with Melissa Matt and Caroline 3 consultants from Fortuna. From day 1, I had a road map to follow and they supported me every step of the way. Communicating with both of them was easy, clear and quick. They not only prepared me but motivated me throughout the admission process. The team's recommendations and advice really helped me in my applications to INSEAD and IMD, and I was delighted to gain admissions to both. Overall, Fortuna was worth every penny, and I wholeheartedly recommend the team to others."

I worked with Natalie from Accepted dot com and had an incredible experience. I highly recommend working with her!

I had free consultations, basically interviews, with 8 different firms. Each lasted 45-60 minutes, but the content varied greatly from conversations regarding a firm or consultant's general approach, to outlining a list of schools and an application strategy, and everything between. Some of the firms will match you with your actual consultant before the initial conversation, while others will tell you that you need to be evaluated before you are matched (or, in some cases, given a few consultant options to choose from).

In my case, I spoke with Natalie directly. Accepted was the last firm that I spoke with, and had pretty much already made up my mind on another consultant, until I spoke with her, and immediately knew that she was the one. Not only did our personalities mesh well, but she demonstrated an incredibly intimate knowledge of the admissions process and the interworkings of adcoms at top-tier schools.

I purchased a 6-school comprehensive package, and hit the ground running. The value that I received from Natalie went far beyond simply editing my essays; we worked on finalizing my school list, updating my resume, crafting my story/brand, each individual school's specific essays, mocked my video essays, mocked my interviews, etc, etc etc. She assisted and provided valuable insight into every single step of the process. In addition, her knowledge of the process saved me an enormous amount of time that would have otherwise been spent researching specific questions that Natalie could simply answer off of the top of her head.

Of course, results are the most important factor, and I have been thrilled with the outcome of my applications thus far. I have several top programs to choose from for R1, and still have two R2 application decisions to look forward to!
Overall, incredible experience, and worth every penny. I doubt I would be in the incredible situation that I am in without the help of Natalie and Accepted!

I had a great experience with Matt, Caroline, and Melissa from Fortuna for my INSEAD application. They were incredibly helpful and responsive to my requests for how to best present my story to the adcom, and with their experience in the admissions office I was very confident that their advice would be fantastic. They went above and beyond what was required of them on many occasions, and I would not hesitate to recommend their services to anyone.
