Incredibly valuable advice - Would rate this 6 stars if I could!


When I first set out to select an admissions consultant, my goal was to find a team of people that would truly customize their advice to my unique circumstances. I chose a 3-school package from Veritas Prep based on the strong reviews and positive experiences people had shared in a variety of online forums. I was assigned Marcus Dahllof as my Head Consultant, and soon began to realize just how crucial his advice would be to my eventual success. Marcus and I first spent a lot of time brainstorming my application strategy up front. During this time, Marcus helped me think through the relative strengths and weaknesses in my profile, as well as which programs would be best aligned with my career goals. We then switched gears to essay writing and resume tailoring, where Marcus offered valuable perspective on which topics would be the most compelling. He then meticulously reviewed several iterations of each essay, helping me to link key aspects of my candidacy to unique offerings at specific school. Lastly, Marcus provided feedback on the online applications themselves, highlighting areas where I should elaborate on points raised elsewhere in the application materials. The end result was a highly-customized, impact-focused application for each of my target schools.

I was ultimately admitted to 2 of my 3 target schools, including my top choice (Columbia). With each acceptance, the admissions team commented on the strength of my overall application. There is no doubt in mind that Marcus and Veritas Prep were absolutely critical to this level of success. I honestly cannot recommend Marcus or the Veritas Prep admissions consulting services enough.
