Consultant: Lindsay

When I started my business school application process, I seriously doubted whether or not I could get into a top program due to my below average GMAT score. Lindsay not only instilled confidence in me, but also helped me execute flawless applications to all of my top choices (most of which were reach programs). She helped me frame my story in a way that made perfect sense, and most importantly helped me highlight experiences that on the surface I didn’t think were that unique. From the initial brainstorming session, to my countless essays, to interview prep, Lindsay was there by my side every step of the way. I can’t say enough about her, she is the best in the business.

I worked with Lindsay and her advice throughout my application process was invaluable. She gave me the exact information I needed and answered my questions with firm and clear direction.

Her consultation saved me so much time (and money!) by helping me prioritize the sections of my application that needed the most attention and focus.

I was up against a tight timeline and she was clear, upfront and communicative about deadlines and the process of working together.

I'm thrilled to say I got into my top choice program. I would happily recommend her to anyone going through the application process, especially for the Stern part-time program.

I came from a non-traditional background, majoring in Neurobiology and working in medical devices startup. In addition to that, I had a little short of 3 years of experience (by the time I go to MBA) under my belt. When I decided to apply to MBA, I was quite worried and not very confident. I consulted several companies, and I received comments like I needed more experience, I should switch jobs to larger companies, etc. With SBC, it was completely different. They were encouraging, helped me analyze my background, presented to me my strengths, and at the same time, being truthful on the range of schools I would probably get into. Eventually, I was paired with Lindsay.

My experience with Lindsay was amazing and I really value everything I learned from this experience. Lindsay helped me understand the application process and what business schools are looking for. She showed me weaknesses that I need to work on, but more importantly, strengths that I did not realize I had in my application. We had a structured timeline for each school, and even though it was a lot of work, I did not feel extremely pressured.

There are two parts where I feel Lindsay helped me the most: the resume and the interview. Lindsay showed me how to cater my resume for MBA admissions, helping it transition from the very technical resume with big research terms to an attractive resume where it showcased my teamwork and leadership skills. Lindsay also helped build my confidence for interviews. Her mock interview was tough, BUT it was just what I needed. Not only did she provided concrete advice for my content afterwards, she also provided behavioral advice such as my speed of talking, pauses that I should take, etc.

I will be attending Ross this fall and I am truly grateful for my experience with SBC, especially Lindsay! I highly recommend her to everyone.

I reached out to multiple firms at the beginning of my MBA application process, and ultimately decided to go with SBC based on their prompt reply, encouraging feedback, and eagerness to work with me. They paired me up with Lindsay and I'm so thankful they did!

Lindsay was a real pleasure to work with. I knew nothing about this process at the beginning, and Lindsay walked me through it all step by step. Not only did she reassure me that I was a good and competitive candidate (I come from a non-traditional background and was worried about having the right experience), but she helped me craft my story. She guided me through the application process, talked through some of my school choices, helped me with my essays, and prepped me for interviews. I relied on her for a lot, and she was was incredibly supportive.

I'm thrilled to say that I got into my first choice MBA program, and I absolutely could not have done it without Lindsay's help. Her insight was invaluable and I can't thank her enough! I would definitely recommend Lindsay and SBC to anyone who needs a helping hand during the MBA application process.

Consultant: Lindsay

After deciding to push MBA applications up by a year, I felt as though I was getting to the process quite late. I initially reached out to SBC because I had read some of their articles and felt as though they could help me gage whether or not applying this year was the right decision.

I was paired with Lindsay, who assured me that I had enough time to put together a great application. Lindsay really helped me through every step of the process, from choosing the right schools to target to how to handle any unexpected setbacks. I appreciated her honesty which allowed me to really push myself when I needed to and feel confident in the areas I could shine.

Not only did she make a difficult process extremely enjoyable, I was accepted to my dream school NYU Stern! I cannot recommend SBC and Lindsay enough. The MBA application process is gruelling and it is so helpful to have someone on your side to share the experience with.

When I started the application process for B-School, I spoke with 4 different consulting services. Given the stressful and time consuming job I already had, I wanted some help crafting my applications so I could go through the process confidently and with less stress. Stacy Blackman (and Lindsay in particular) helped me achieve this with ease. From day 1, I felt comfortable working with Lindsay and actually excited for the process. She helped me hone in on the goals I wanted to achieve during and after the MBA experience and how to best present these ideas to admissions boards. And with the two school package, she actually helped me tailor the essays individually for each school I applied to. From the beginning I thought it would be a reach to get into Columbia but because of Lindsay's help, I found out in October that I will be a member of the class of 2019. I can't recommend Stacy Blackman consulting enough.

Lindsay was amazing to work with, she was able to bring a calming presence to a highly stressful process. Coming from a consultant background I’m still amazed with the devotion Lindsay gives to each one of her clients. She makes you feel as though you were her only client by developing such an incredible understanding of your individual situation and background. Throughout the process her honesty was refreshing and reassuring, she helped set attainable goals and build a strategy that set me apart from other candidate. My undergrad GPA was not the strongest and it was a major concern of mine. Using her in-depth knowledge of my past she was able to develop a strategy that highlighted my weak GPA in a way that made it less concerning to the Adcom. Lindsay was a pleasure to work with and I’m grateful for her help. I highly recommend SBC and Lindsay.

I had an unbelievable experience using the SBC comprehensive package. I was a reapplicant (I used SBC the first time as well but I wasn’t as successful) and I am ecstatic to say that I have numerous options to choose from this year.
After my initial conversation with Esther, I was matched with Lindsay. She had already worked in Admissions at NYU (which was one of my target schools) so it was a perfect match. From the get go, Lindsay went above and beyond in all of our interactions. She was not only extremely responsive via email but she was willing to meet in person as well. She really wanted to hear my story and helped me tailor my essays for each specific school. She has such a deep knowledge of what each school wants to hear and it was a true pleasure to work with her. I could not have gone through this process without her.
As I started to receive interviews from schools, Lindsay deferred me to Bryan who was superb as well. He knew how hard I worked on getting into these schools and he was happy to have mock interview sessions over the phone several times. He really helped me deliver my story and reconfirm that I belong in these schools.
After all of this work I am happy to say that I received an offer from Yale, NYU Stern (full merit scholarship) and Wharton and that I will be attending Wharton this summer. Wharton has always been my dream school and there is no chance I could have been here without the help of Bryan and Lindsay.

Consultant: Lindsay

I did interview prep with many MBA prep firms before and I was not happy until I started to work with SBC and Lindsay. I purchased an interview prep (three hours in total) through SBC and Lindsay did an excellent job in preparing me for the interview. She is very friendly and professional. More importantly, she’s super effective in pointing out my weaknesses and her interview feedbacks helped me improve significantly. As a result of her help, I not only got an offer from my dream school (NYU Stern) but also received a lot of valuable interview advice that I can definitely use to prepare for my future job interviews. I highly recommend SBC and Lindsay!
