First up, here's a bit of background about me and my candidacy: I'm an American female, from a non-ivy undergrad (3.8 GPA) with slightly below average GMAT (690). Pre MBA, I worked at a global Financial Services company with the goal of landing a spot at a top consulting firm post MBA.
I decided to work with a consultant on my business school apps early on, knowing that I could easily be overlooked if I didn't highlight the right details about my experience when I applied to top programs. I met with representatives from a few companies, however, decided to work with MBA Mission as soon as I met with Liza Weale.
I can't begin to describe how helpful Liza was throughout the entire application process - she helped narrow down my list of target schools, advised which areas of my background were most compelling and worked with me through countless revisions, until my application truly reflected that I was a competitive candidate. Ultimately I ended up working on two applications with Liza - Harvard and Columbia, and I was accepted to CBS! And when I was deciding between a new role and business school, she was a solid sounding board.
Overall, while I valued Liza's input on my application, I also truly enjoyed working with her, which made the process much more painless (dare I say, even enjoyable at times?) Needless to say, if you're planning to spend the money on a consultant, I highly recommend meeting with Liza.
