I was referred to Admissionado by a friend, who said that I couldn't go wrong with them. As an Indian applicant, applying for a second MBA, I knew that I would have to create incredibly convincing applications to be able to make it to a top-5 school.

Even before I signed up, I was bowled over by the team’s professionalism. Claudia (Director of Operations) was easily accessible over mail and took out time to answer all my questions. Her advice has always been genuine, frank and upfront – for instance she told me in no uncertain terms that I would have to dig deep and evaluate reasons as to why I wanted a second MBA, without which my entire story would fall through.

I signed up for a 3-school Junior Deluxe package and CV review. The process started off with my filling out a detailed questionnaire and doing a deep-dive Skype call with my consultant, Julie. Julie then shared an Action Plan with me, which I used to start drafting my essays and resume. Julie was always just an e-mail away, and even before I submitted any drafts to her, I could just send in an e-mail with any queries or clarifications I needed. If I were to look over the first and final drafts of my essays, I would truthfully say that the ideas and intent that I wished to convey to the AdCom were all mine. However, by asking the right questions and challenging me to dig deeper, Julie was able to make my essays shine!

I submitted applications to 2 schools in R1 and was invited to interview at both. It was an obvious choice to sign up for the Interview Prep package as well. I opted for the Premium Package, which gave me the advantage of using the feedback (and audio recording) from the first mock interview to make improvements before the second.

Just last week, I received my R1 decisions. I’ve been accepted at one school (Wharton) and am on a waitlist at the other. I wouldn’t have come this far without Admissionado and specifically, Julie! If I had to highlight what I loved about Admissionado’s services, it would be their professionalism, quick (super-quick actually) turnaround time, really sharp editing and most importantly a genuine, heartfelt interest in ‘me’ as an applicant. All of these qualities can be immensely supportive during the gruelling application process, and I’d strongly recommend Admissionado for precisely these reasons!!
