REAL REVIEWS
YOU CAN TRUST

We read, verify and individually confirm each review

How we verify reviews

Step 1

Purchase Verification

We verify that the reviewer was a client by comparing the email address they provide with the company's database.

Step 2

Identity Verification

We verify the reviewer's identity through one of the following:

Official GMAT Score Report

GMAT Club Membership Term

School E-mail Address

Step 3

We manually process all reviews, and if a review does not meet any of the prior criteria, the review will not be posted.

Step 4

We pay $10 for each GMAT Course and Admission Consultant review only if we are certain it is a real review. If we cannot verify it, we won't issue a giftcard for it and we won't publish it.

GMAT Club requires that users verify their identity before posting a review.

The reviewer was admit to the schools that they applied to:

Yes - school of my dreams

Consultant: Jennifer Bloom

I worked with Stratus Prep in Round 1 and had abysmal response on my applications. For Round 2, I contacted Accepted.com and they paired me with Jennifer.

I bought the hourly package and got a lot more than what I paid for. From the first minute, Jennifer's strategic approach was evident to me. She helped me craft my story in a way I wasn't able to earlier. She kept pushing me hard till I was able to write a perfect essay, while all the time reminding me to stay honest and ethical about it. One would assume that a consultant would give up after a couple of iterations if the client is not listening, but Jennifer did not. I thank her for the same!

Her understanding of what each school wants is terrific and she does a wonderful job of nudging the essays in that direction. In fact, later, she helped me with interview prep, post-interview notes and wait list strategy. I worked on 3 schools with her - MIT / Booth / Tuck and was interviewed by all of them. I finally got accepted at Tuck.

Jennifer is especially good to work with if you are looking at budget options. She is very efficient and I used less than 15 hours with her (and that was because I wasn't as efficient) for school selection / 1 ding report / essay service for 3 schools / 2 mock interviews / 2 post interview reports and wait list strategy.

I haven't worked with other Accepted consultants, but I have also often benefited from Linda's webinars and blogs.

I worked with Natalie from Accepted.com and I highly recommend her!

As an international student, I did not know much about the American MBA admission process when I started applying. Natalie improved my application significantly by providing very honest and efficient feedback on my essays. She helped me focusing on the relevant aspects and developing a good structure for the essay. In addition, she did an interview training session with me which was just great!

Overall , I got interviews at all 5 top-ranked business schools I applied for and I will start HBS this coming fall.

I could not have done it without her!

Consultant: Jennifer Weld

My essay writing was decent and I knew what story I wanted to tell the AdComs, I did not opt for the more expensive MBA consulting package but instead used Accepted's essay editing services. I just needed someone to read my essays and edit it- eliminate fluff and make them sharper. After doing some research I decided to go ahead with Accepted. I worked with Jen and was extremely happy with the response. The turnaround time was quick, her responses were accurate, and she even told me if she had managed to edit my essay before the hour. The extra time that I had purchased was used for editing my resume. I was very impressed with this honesty. All in all it was a great experience. If there is anyone else who needs purely essay editing services I would highly recommend Accepted.

Consultant: Karin

Working with Dr.Ash was a pleasure. I had hourly session with Dr. Karin Ash. She has a deep knowledge of the whole process and had really helped in understanding pitfalls in my essay. I did get several admits in b-schools this year but unfortunately my plans for MBA has changed as my goals have drastically changed.
I will be doing MBA 2-3 years from now. In the time being will work towards my goals and see how my idea pans out. In future I will surely use accepted services to get me through the hurdle. Kudos to accepted. a

Consultant: Jennifer Weld

I am writing to very enthusiastically recommend Jen Weld at Accepted.com. In our first project together, Jen helped edit my resume and application essays. I appreciate how the end products were my own experiences, ideas, and words made better through her honest and direct feedback. Jen also coached me through two mock interview sessions. In these sessions Jen prepared me for the types of questions that I would face, provided coaching on timing and content, and gave me the confidence to perform in the real interviews. Jen also answered numerous questions about the admissions process. Her experience as a member of the admissions committee at Cornell provided excellent insight into how the AdCom will receive my application. I strongly believe that Jen’s guidance and coaching significantly contributed to my successful acceptance to the MIT EMBA class of 2019.

While evaluating several MBA admissions coaching services, I was attracted to Accepted.com because of the great, free content on their site and by the initial free session with Jen. I appreciated the chance to speak with Jen and establish rapport with her before plunking down money.

I worked with Dan, beginning with an exploratory conversation in May 2016. I was concerned that because of my undergraduate GPA, business school was absolutely off limits, but Dan explained to me the holistic approach top business schools take in admissions decisions and we got to work!

Dan was very hands-on, and was an excellent sounding board throughout the whole process. There were several hiccups during my application process (due to internal politics at work and GMAT concerns) but Dan was always helpful in offering some perspective on the situation at hand.

Dan helped me narrow down my list of schools and encouraged creativity in my application, which I think really made my candidacy stand out. I would highly recommend Dan to anyone thinking about applying to business school and would be happy to talk offline about my experience with Dan and MBA Mission in general.

Consultant: Jennifer Bloom

Jennifer has been a great support to me during the application process. I would like to call out her resume edits specially, she helped me shape my resume into one that was crisp and yet very effective. She helped me think through my experiences and articulate them to convey the message I wanted to in the finest form. She was very responsive and was supremely professional. She was a keen listener and had great eye for details. She has been patient throughout the process, and her calmness often gave me the strength to stand strong during the application process :) I would highly recommend Jennifer and the services of Accepted and Linda, to all the applicants.

2 years journey with Jennifer

Consultant: Jennifer Bloom

What a process this has been! I am a reapplicant who came very close the first time and got accepted to 2/3 (top 5 business schools) in my second attempt (with scholarship money from each).

The journey would not have been successful nor would have been the same without Jennifer and Accepted by my side. Being from a non-traditional background, I had little clue about admissions consulting. The reviews online provided too many options. I was referred to her unambiguously by a friend who had made it to Stanford. I took a leap of faith and have had no regrets since.

Jennifer has years of successful experience with many MBA applicants but still remains down to earth and easily accessible. From her experience, she has deep knowledge and insights into what is required for all top B schools. She is brutally honest upfront, a very important skill to have as an admissions consultant. Throughout she was like a mirror to which I can always turn to for honest feedback.

Her biggest strength is her editing skills. She can do magic with words, but is a perfectionist at the same time- a rare combination to have. Word limits and precision of speech are no longer obstacles if you are working with her!

Her other big asset is accessibility and a sense of calm in all situations. MBA application process is long and stressful. There are times when you naturally become obsessed over small details and/or need clarification about things that you may normally ignore. You need a partner, a confidante who can help you navigate these times while remaining patient and non judgmental. She keeps herself super organized, which helps her to achieve a high turnaround time even at peak times. There was never a time she refused to edit a last minute essay change or a last minute email to adcom/interviewer. I cannot think of a more calm and professional person. She genuinely cared for my success throughout this long journey and she demonstrated this by her tremendous work ethic and not by flowery language.

I believe that Accepted.com and Linda support and encourage this work ethic. Through my reapplication I worked briefly with other companies. But no other company comes close to Accepted when it comes to being driven by client success and genuine long -term relationship building, and not primarily by money or profits. The amount of editing/admissions consulting that Jennifer can deliver in 1 hour is just unbelievable!! Give it a shot

I have learnt a lot in this exciting 2 year journey which fortunately led to a positive result at the end. More than the result, the journey itself has made me a better person. I am proud and happy that I had Jennifer to guide me all along this difficult path.

Worth the Investment

Consultant: Keith

Due to the high cost, I just started with a 1-hour session hoping to get some sort of direction. I was so impressed with my initial exchange with Keith that I purchased the 5-hour package immediately afterwards. Whether I got accepted or not, it would still have been worth the investment because I knew I was submitting the best possible application I was able to put together. For those of you who are on the fence due to the cost, I encourage you to start with the 1-hour session like I did. You will be impressed with their services, professionalism, and results.

Consultant: Karin

I had a great experience with Accepted's consulting services and I absolutely recommend them.

I wanted to work with someone who would guide me objectively and with transparency and Karin is the perfect consultant for that. Throughout the process, she has been open to me about what will work and what won't. Her unbiased, thoughtful, and detail-oriented opinions have helped really fine tune and polish my essays.

Before settling down to work on the essays, I had some thought-provoking one-on-one talks with Karin, which really helped me figure out how to communicate who I am to the admissions and how to center the essays.
