As a senior in college, I worked with Expartus for my HBS 2+2 application. I chose to work with Expartus because of their experience and deep insights into the HBS application process, something no other consulting firm seemed to offer when I spoke with them.

I am extremely glad and grateful to have worked with Mollie Wollin. She is efficient, understanding, honest, and most of all - good at what she does. What I found most valuable was Mollie's ability to identify my strengths & weaknesses from the standpoint of an admissions officer, something only possible with an eye as trained as hers after reading hundreds of applications and interacting with so many applicants, whether as an adcomm member or consultant. This alone, is something working with a consultant offers that no amount of Googling, reading books, or talking with friends in b-school can provide you. Mollie was exceptional at strategizing in the entire process, always leveraging her experience and insights to find the best method of approach to every aspect of the application process.

As a very diligent applicant, I thought I could execute the majority of the application by myself well. However, only when I started working with Mollie did I realize how wrong I was and how much room for improvement there was. Mollie was instrumental in helping me identify my personal brand, our angle of approach to the essay, trimming my essay to make it as strong as it could be, picking strategic recommenders, redesigning my entire resume (as a senior, it was previously careers focused and not b-school focused), working with my recommenders to strategically highlight certain traits of me, and down to very specific advice such as helping me with very specific line items in the application, how I should approach a recommender, or things I should look out for during my on-campus visit. Mollie was also invaluable during the interview process, giving me resources to prepare, analyzing my strengths and weaknesses using her insights, and conducting a mock interview that was strikingly similar to the actual one.

An added benefit of working with Expartus was that I also got to work with other members of their consulting team. Chioma was also able to offer her thoughts based on her insights and experience through my essay and also prepared me well through a mock interview.

I got accepted into the HBS 2+2 program and give my highest praise for Mollie and Expartus.
