Alex was an absolute dream to work with. I applied to 7 programs, all top 10, and was accepted to 5 of them, waitlisted at 1, and interviewed but rejected at 1.
I'm so glad that I found him while Google searching for a service that I felt would suit my needs and though I was hesitant at first, I can say that this is one of the best decisions I made.
Two years ago, I had applied for 2+2 programs as a senior in college and used Veritas Prep as my service - there are tons of good reviews, really competent consultants, and I figured I couldn't go wrong. This is so far from the truth... I did not have any support during my application process, it was a cold back and forth of essay revisions with no help in synthesizing my story or what my story could be, even my resume hardly changed in look or feel from an undergraduate student's resume to a business school applicant's resume. Obviously, though I was a strong applicant at the time, I got no interview requests and I'm honestly not surprised. My consultant got me final edits for my essay the day my application was due 3 hours before the deadline. Talk about unprofessional!
Fast forward two years, as I began the hunt again, I was determined to find the best fit for myself and was wary of the larger consulting machines. I stumbled across Alex, and my first call with him was long and very personal. He took an active interest in getting to know me and my story and even came up with potential ways to position myself as an applicant. Stories that I never thought to dredge up again from my past became a focus of my application and I am very happy they did because they reflect my true inner personality.
Alex went above and beyond the call of duty; he was always available to answer silly questions or inquiries, gave thoughtful opinions, and even worked on essays that he didn't know were coming his way!
Alex is a great consultant if you want honest opinions and thoughtful revisions. He won't simply go through and rewrite your essay for you, but he will help guide you in the right direction. He has continued to remain in touch with me far past application deadlines and acceptances, and this personal touch is heartwarming and makes it clear that we are more than just a business for him.
