Excellent Experience with Julia

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by school email address [?]

I worked with Julia on an hourly basis, focusing on two of the four applications I submitted in Round 2.

While I thought I had some decent ideas for my applications going in, Julia was instrumental in giving me a better understanding of what I needed to make my applications stand out. From initial brainstorming and strategy sessions, a comprehensive resume review, and close partnership during the essay writing process, she helped me be compelling and concise in conveying my background, my experience, and how these schools would help me achieve my goals. I was able to apply Julia's guidance to my other two applications as well and achieve a fantastic outcome in the end: interview invites to all four schools and acceptances to Tuck and Darden.

Julia is an amazing partner to have in the application process and I highly recommend working with her!

Exceptional Service


I worked with Julia Brady and Judith Silverman and they both did an exceptional job of helping me navigate through the application process of Wharton MBA program. Julia was very knowledgeable about the process and made sure everything was done correctly with a keen eye on details. As a cardiovascular surgeon, I needed Julia's business school-focused overview of the application as well as advice on key components of the test-taking strategies. She was a great resource and a sounding board for structuring my vision of what the candidate that I wanted Wharton to recognize. I was accepted to Wharton for my EMBA just a few weeks ago.
