I originally heard about Liza through a few friends who had worked with her, and now I know exactly why they spoke so highly of her. I’m confident that I wouldn’t have been as successful in my application process had it not been for the guidance Liza provided – she’s worth every penny.
Before choosing Liza, I had spoken to a handful of consultants , all of whom had provided me with some helpful thoughts on how I could position myself in the application process. While Liza did the same, her approach was different; Liza was able to establish a genuine connection in a short intro call with me. I could tell she would be honest and forthright with me on my chances while also providing me with a sense of confidence; a true belief that I am capable of getting into a top 5 MBA program. Based on friends’ recommendations and the level of comfort I felt with Liza, I decided to go with her and purchased the complete package.
Going into the process, I felt concerned about my ability to differentiate myself (coming from an overrepresented male/banking/PE background), but Liza quickly put my fears at ease. During the essay process, Liza had an innate ability to bring out exactly why I took the path I did and helped me craft a story around how my upbringing and experiences have shaped my future career goals. Throughout the entire application process, Liza had this uncanny ability to provide constructive criticism in the most enthusiastic way possible; her comments always motivated me to do better, and it made the work that much easier. I was astounded at how my essays transformed between the first drafts and final products, and I really couldn’t have done it without Liza’s guidance.
Above all else, Liza is always on your side. She’s incredibly nice, considerate, and is constantly checking up on you, not just to make sure you’ve submit things on time, but to just say “how are you feeling?” – she provides an extra level of comfort and you get the feeling that she really, truly wants you to succeed. When I was rejected at one of my top schools, Liza was just a call away as a sounding board to hear me vent. When I was accepted at another of my top choices, Liza was ecstatic and overjoyed, just like I was! She’s there every step of the way, and you’ll never feel alone in the process.
Overall, I could not be happier with my experience working with Liza – it was everything I was hoping for and I wholeheartedly recommend her.
