I am the first person to admit that the Veritas Prep service is expensive. However, once I collected my jaw after reading the price tag, I can honestly say that the service was worth every cent I paid for it.
I paid for a "1 school package" which, for me, was the best option.
My consultant, Katty, was phenomenal and I cannot recommend her highly enough.
The application process is stressful and I was preparing applications whilst studying for the GMAT (starting from a very low maths base).
Katty made that process far less stressful than I am certain it would otherwise have been. She was available via skype/email, was always positive (even when I was struggling with GMAT prep), easily walked me through the admissions process (which she clearly knows inside out), got to know me and really helped me draw out what I was seeking to achieve from an MBA so that I could express it succinctly in my application.
I genuinely enjoyed working with her, making the application process far less painful, and really got the sense that she was as invested in my success as I was.
Katty, I have probably said this to you over a million times, but THANK YOU again!

Like I mentioned - hiring Veritas Prep to help me with my application prep was one of the best investments I made. I applied to a total of 4 schools and got accepted into my top 2 choices - Kellogg and London business School.
The good thing with Veritas was that they had a clear system which ensured that at minimum atleast 3 specialist consultant with a high level of previous adcom experience are looking at each of your applications before submission (1 Head consultant, 1 specialist who helps advice on the school and another final director review where a third consultant independently reviews your application). In my knowledge no other organization does this.
Separately - their consultants are highly experienced and very helpful. Katty who was my head consultant was extremely friendly and helpful. She guided me right from the beginning through my choice of business schools till the submission going through multiple reviews and calls together. She even helped me change my school midway when I felt that it wasn't the right choice for me. With her help, I was able to laser focus my efforts and applied to a total of only 4 schools out of which I got 2 offers from my top 2 choices.
Definitely would recommend Veritas. When you are taking such a big next step, make sure you take all the steps to give yourself the best shot and Veritas was definitely a step in the right direction for me. :)

Where do I start in thanking Katty for her support and getting me into my top business school choice? Katty was part advisor, part editor, part parent and part therapist as we worked together for more than 18 months.
When I started working with Katty I has just come from a bad experience with another admissions consultant. I knew OF the top business schools but didn’t really much about them; It was a bit of a difficult journey not personally knowing anyone that had gone through the experience before and being geographically very distant to the top schools.
As a respected former head of admissions for a top business school, Katty knew what the top schools look for in a candidate, schools that would suit my profile and my personality fit for each school. Most importantly she able to continue to motivate me even when I was feeling demotivated throughout the process.
Working for the best admissions consulting firm, Katty had access to tap into specialists for the schools I was applying to which meant there was typically 3+ people reviewing each application and I could speak to alumni about the schools directly too. This was a big help during the interview process.
An admissions consultant can’t guarantee admission into a top school but Katty definitely knew how to put the best side of me forward for my applications and turn my application into a set of precisely crafted stories easy for admissions to follow and for me to use during my interviews. It was a really worthwhile investment.
I can’t recommend Katty enough. Aside from all admissions knowledge she really puts a human touch to the experience, she really made the effort to get to know me and I always felt she was going above and beyond. She’s even planning to visit me next year at business school. Thank you so much Katty!

I wanted to share with you my MBA journey and how Katty was, without a doubt, instrumental in this quest to reach my goals.
This year I decided to apply to my target Buisiness School.
I remember having a call with the amazing Veritas team, and they quickly helped me to tailor a program that would suit my needs.
Moreover, I received their recommendation to work with Katty as my MBA consultant. Upon reading her bio, I immediately knew that she was the person I wanted to work with. Having been part of the admissions team of a very high ranked Business school, she had plenty of experience in the matter.
During our first calls I already felt her genuine interest in getting to know me and helping me to reach my goals.
Several times, she left me as homework some introspective food for thought and some valuable tips, such as asking my loved ones for sincere 360 feedback.
No only did this help me to bring the best into my application form but also I became more confident about my own chances to secure a seat on the MBA.
I submitted my application and surely enough, was invited by the business school for their assessment day.
We had several sessions to prepare for this very important day, and after these preparation period, I never felt so ready for an interview in my life!
I did great during the assessment day, and I remember calling her immediately afterwards to tell her about my performance.
Some days later, I received the call from the admissions team telling me that I had been accepted for their 2017 class.
It was a dream come true. Sure enough, the first person I called to tell the happy news was Katty (don't tell my wife).

With continuous coaching and encouragement, Katty made the whole process of preparing for the MBA a journey to get to know my self and to play on my strengths.

I definitely recommend her as MBA consultant.

I used Vertias Consulting services because I used their GMAT prep course and had very positive results. My consulting experience was no different. I hired a consultant to help me address my low GPA. My consultant was extremely helpful because she helped me create an application that focused on my strengths as opposed to my weakness. This was a different approach from what I had read on blogs.
Additionally, I am an American who was applying to an international school and it was important that my consultant had experience with international schools. My consultant has helped many students get into top international school as well as had admissions experience internationally. She also was very timely in her reviews even during peak times.
I ended up getting into my top choice and I truly believe I would not have been able to do so without the help of Veritas!! Can't recommend them enough!!

I had a great experience with Veritas Prep’s admissions consulting service. I selected the two school package as I was applying to only two schools (only two eggs in my basket so a risky play). I knew I had my work cut out for me. Katty at Veritas was instrumental in guiding me through the application process. Furthermore, I found having access to the school consultants and Director level review vital in tailoring my essays to the respective schools and getting every last bit of quality out my applications. In the end I interviewed with both programs and was admitted to my first choice so I am pleased with my investment.

After working with my main consultant, Katty was the school specialist assigned to help me with the finer details of my essay. As a non-traditional applicant, I struggled at times to find transferrable skills that I could apply in the business context. Fortunately with Katty, this was never an issue. She has extensive experience with the admissions process and helped me see that my different/unique career was an advantage rather than a handicapped. She knew the exact areas of my experience to highlight, and helped me translate them into skills which were highly adaptable to the B-school classroom and beyond.

Katty also helped me with interview preparation. With her guidance, I walked into the interview confident and the only thing I could say was I had no regrets. I was ready for any question the interviewer gave me and I honestly think that my interview performance was the main reason I received an 80% scholarship to the school.

Katty went above and beyond her duty as a school specialist. Although she only helped me with one school, I feel that had she been my main consultant for my application to all the schools, I wouldn't have needed any other specialists for the other schools that I applied to. I think the clearest indication of that was that I was only invited to interview at the school she helped me with. She was in fact surprised that I was not invited or accepted at the other schools as she felt that I had a very unique background that would work well in my favour for those schools.

Katty is a truly exceptional consultant. I think what really makes her one of the best consultants is that she is not the traditional "graduate from the school", "adcom member during her MBA" consultant. Instead she was responsible for overseeing the entire adcom at a top European business school. I think that my experience with some other school specialists have shown me that simply having gone to a school does not make you a good consultant and I consider myself extremely lucky to have cross paths with one of the best in the business.

The b-school application process is a tough journey, and I think that there is no better companion for this journey than Katty.

Yes - school of my dreams

This review is for: Veritas Prep School Packages
Consultant: Katty Ooms Sutter

I took up admission consulting 3 school package from Veritas prep and Katty was my admissions director. I should say my experience with Katty, and with veritas prep was amazing.

Katty was just superb! She has very deep knowledge and expertise in the mba application process and her inputs and support made a huge difference in my overall application. Katty is not just experienced in this domain she is very passionate about helping applicants. She has the great skill to understand the applicant profile and help him/her to think out of the box and come up with value added essay storyboard.

Apart from this, veritas also assigns a school specialist and an admissions director to do an independent review of the application. This process helps to bring in a different view to the application and in turn helps us to come out with the best essay.

Overall I am impressed with veritas prep services and I strongly recommend for any prospective student.

Good luck on your MBA application!
