I enrolled in Veritas Prep School Package in 2015 which I extended to 2016 as well. Working with Veritas Prep was a great pleasure. My consultant really worked with me on building my profile, reviewing my resume and essays. I received a lot of inputs from their whole team about my applications. The inputs were quite insightful, these helped in making my application strong. My consultant was readily available on emails and calls. The best part was I got honest reviews about my candidacy and applications. The whole team really exceeded my expectations. I will definitely recommend candidates looking for admissions consulting to go with Veritas Prep.

Veritas Prep has played a huge part in my MBA applications this year. I had explored several options before deciding to go with them and boy that was one of the best decisions in my life.

I opted for the 3-school package and was immediately set up with Larry Sochrin, my head consultant. Larry is just the best in the business.

He is extremely patient. On an average, an applicant goes through 3 iterations of their MBA essays with their consultant. I averaged 5. Reading and re-reading 5 drafts of a school's essay demands a tremendous amount of patience, which Larry exhibited.

He knows the admissions process in and out. He was instrumental in helping me portray the factors that made me unique, through my essays.

He ensures that his clients are comfortable throughout the admissions process. I prefer talking on the phone with an expert when I'm absolutely stuck, as opposed to communicating through e-mails. Larry always offered to talk to me over the phone whenever I needed help. That is a luxury that not many consultants provide.

Veritas Prep has a systematic approach to consulting. First you talk with an alumnus from the school that you are applying to prior to writing your essays. Then you work with a lead consultant on your essays. Next the alumnus reads your essay and provides a feedback. Then the final application is read by a director, who has real world experience in B-school admissions at the top B-schools. Veritas Prep provides several pairs of experts' eyes on your application.

In the ultra-competitive B-school admissions process these days, seeking experts' opinion is indispensable. I highly recommend Veritas Prep's consulting service to all business school applicants.

Wish you all the best!

I signed up for a Veritas School Package and was assigned Larry as my Head Consultant.

Larry is very prompt with all his responses--I started working on my school essays pretty late in the process but within the short time frame, and with Larry's feedback, I was able to crank out multiple edits until I felt satisfied with my essays. Throughout the process, Larry sent me periodic reminders on deadlines and made sure there was enough time to get a Director's review as well.

When comparing the final submitted essays to my initial draft, the final essays were a lot more mature and polished!

I will explain how the Veritas Prep school consulting package works to start.

Step 1 - you are introduced to your head consultant (Larry) who you work with on everything.

Step 2 - When you are 75% done with the essays, you send them to the school specialist who helps you refine them and make them more school specific. He also tells you a lot more about the culture and fit of the program.

Step 3 - Right before you are about to submit your application you send your whole application for a director review, who gives you very blunt feedback about your whole application (This is very beneficial).

Overall, Larry was great head consultant. He responded quickly to everything and made the whole process flow smoothly.

Larry was short, to the point, direct, and helpful while I crafted my essays and application. I appreciated his help very much and would not have had as strong of a story to tell had it not been for his help bringing my story to light.

The process was difficult, but having the admissions consultant asking me the right questions, I was able to navigate my application process in a way that allowed me to use my time most efficient manner possible.

I would recommend using a consultant, especially veritas prep. The GMAT prep was also an incredible resource for me.

I opted for the hourly review package from Veritas to help with my application. I had Larry assigned to me and straightaway I got my essays and resume reviewed thoroughly. With the suggestions I received, I realized that I had to completely redo my submissions. I had a lot of help to do that - we had many rounds of reviews where my essays and resume were improved and a lot of thought was given even to the minute details - and finally, the finished product was exactly as I had expected. I would definitely recommend Larry and Veritas for all the help that one would need to complete applications.

I have been considering to apply to business school for several years, I finally made the decision to apply this summer. I enrolled with the Veritas consultant package and Veritas Gmat course. The Veritas Prep curriculum and courses are great. They thoroughly teach you the material and enforce it through practice problems and skillbuilder quizzes.

My experience with Larry Sochrin, my head consultant was outstanding. As soon as we began the application process, I knew that working with Larry had been a wise choice. My first brainstorming session started as a general get-to-know-you session, but it was immediately clear that Larry genuinely wanted to understand my personality and behavior. At the end of the session, he helped me craft an MBA game plan, which helped to provide an introspective outlook on my application strategy. In my following sessions, Larry provided me with great feedbacks on my essay drafts and is aways prompt to respond to any queries.

Would highly recommend Larry and Veritas over the other prep companies out there.
