I signed up for a multiple school package with Veritas and based on my personality, I was assigned Max as a head consultant. I was really happy with the level of service, especially during the crunch times of a couple schools. Max cut his turnout time from 48 to 24 hours to make deadlines, even though he frequently returned reviewed items much quicker than that. One of the major things I've taken away is that it seems like applicants get too involved with trying to be completely different/unique/etc. which can cause them to lose sight of the big picture. I think Max did a really good job of keeping me on track/grounded while highlighting the unique aspects of my profile. The process itself is stressful, but having someone there with you every step of the way and to keep you on track helps a lot.
One of the unique aspects of Veritas is that you have the opportunity to have 3 sets of eyes review your work (head consultant, specialist, and a high level admissions director review). I have to say the specialists for Cornell, Duke, and Michigan were exceptional. Not only did they have experience working with the school, but they helped pull experiences from my background to highlight. After I submitted my applications, they all kept in touch and followed up to see how things turned out and help with decisions. I really appreciated that level of client service
Using a consultant is expensive, but if you have the means, I highly recommend it. A couple things to keep in mind though: they are not going to write your essays for you and the finished product is much more about your work than their review (if you give them a crap essay, it'll just be a better and grammatically correct crap essay).
As I near the process, I've been accepted to two of the top programs I applied to (both top 10/15). Although I questioned some of the advice I was given and the cost, I regret nothing now. I would highly recommend Max to anyone seeking admissions consulting, especially if you are working with a low GPA.
I was very satisfied with the level of professionalism and service offered by my admissions consultant. It was helpful to have a fellow Fuqua alum serve as my consultant. Max was very professional, knowledgeable, and helpful in the time that we had. We spent the majority of our time focusing on addressing my resume and essays. Max provided a lot of great feedback and support in a timely manner. The insights and questions he offered were very helpful. I enjoyed the service and I feel that we maximized the consulting hours. I would highly recommend him and the Veritas Prep service!
