Product mbaMission School Package
I worked with Angela Guido at mbaMission and was admitted to my top choice M7 school.
Finding the right consultant was not an easy process for me and I suffered through bad consultants and advice (wasting tons of precious time) before learning about mbaMission and Angela Guido.
The #1 thing I can advise you to do is to not work with a consultant unless you feel 100% about the following: 1) comfortable with your consultant 2) that he/she understands who you are and what story you need to tell 3) that he/she actually BELIEVES in you and makes you feel good (while still being logical/realistic) about yourself and your chances at your choice schools.
I spoke to a bunch of consultants in the beginning that did not tick those boxes and then I spoke to Angela and everything instantly got better - she ticked each and every box.
mbaMission has you fill out a document that details every single story, accomplishment, job, and experience that you can think of that might be interesting or feature in your application process in some way. I appreciated that they encouraged me to say as much as I could and in doing so, I felt that I was able to really show Angela who I am.
From our first brainstorming conversation, I knew that she had read through and considered my thoughts and words carefully. She records the initial in depth conversations so that you can listen to them after and not worry about missing any of her thoughts or advice. I listened to the first recording with my parents and after listening, my mother immediately smiled and said to me, "Wow, she really gets you."
Is applying to business school stressful? Yes, it is. But is is 100% better when you have someone knowledgeable that you trust and someone who believes in you and is firmly in your corner and available throughout the process. For me, that person was Angela. Instead of feeling forlorn and depressed every time I looked at an application or essay, speaking to Angela actually made me feel better/more sure about things and helped keep me confident in my chances and abilities.
No matter what, applying to bschool is work and you HAVE to put in the time and effort in your application and the GMAT if you want to succeed, but if I had to do it all over again, the only change I would make is signing up with Angela and mbaMission sooner.
