Highly recommend partnering with Liza


I’m an American female working in management consulting abroad, and I had a great experience working with Liza through the start-to-finish package for all schools to which I applied. I originally decided to work with a consultant to provide a more knowledgeable perspective on the process and help me effectively communicate my slightly unconventional career path and experience abroad. After being referred to Liza through a colleague that raved about her, I took advantage of free 30-minute consultations at two companies, including one with Liza at MBAmission. It was important to me to find a reliable partner in the process, and from the call I was immediately convinced that Liza would be an excellent fit. I loved her enthusiasm, honesty, and excitement about getting this journey started.

Liza proved to be a valuable partner throughout the entire process. She helped me narrow down my target school list, brainstormed with me on my key stories, provided comments and guidance through multiple iterations of 10 essays, and prepped me for four different interviews. Now that I’ve received offers from multiple top schools, she is working with me to negotiate scholarships and weigh my options.

In particular, I think there are four reasons why Liza was such a great partner in this process:
1) Liza is experienced and knowledgeable, and she really knows what the admissions committees are looking for across the resume, essays, etc. I started the process unsure of which of my experiences/skills I needed to highlight, and Liza worked closely with me to identify the right examples to include.
2) Liza is a great writer, and she helped me adapt my writing style to be more effective in the admissions essays. She encouraged me to bring out the details in my stories that would create a compelling narrative, and this ultimately made my essays stronger.
3) Liza was extremely professional and timely in managing my essay iterations and responding to my various questions, concerns, etc. She always gave me plenty of time on the phone and never made me feel rushed, even if we went over. She was also flexible to my timing (several hours ahead of New York) and busy work schedule. When I was behind on one essay, she even made herself available on a weekend for a final review.
4) Liza is a very easy and fun person to work with. I always looked forward to my chats with her, and I found her enthusiasm to be a great source of motivation, especially during stressful periods in the process.

Overall, I highly recommend Liza. She not only made the process easier to handle, but I do not believe I would have been as successful without her support and experienced, honest advice.
