I loved Veritas! I was originally hesitant about using Veritas because it is more expensive relative to Kaplan and Princeton. But within the first week of class, all my hesitations were gone. Veritas has numerous strategies that made both verbal and quantitative problems much much easier. I originally struggled with critical reasoning questions A LOT! But with the strategies I learned from Veritas, these were the easiest problems in the end.
The online, full-length practice tests were phenomenal, as they help you specifically identify your weaknesses and strengths and better develop pacing. I can't thank Veritas enough. And true to their word, Veritas helped boost my GMAT score over 100 points and allowed me to score above the 95th percentile!

In the fall of 2012, as I was considering applying to business school, I worked with Veritas Prep for a basic GMAT prep course as well as a school-specific application counseling program with one of Veritas' counselors, Dylan Tatz. I simply cannot speak highly enough of the quality of the prep course, the professionalism of the organization as a whole, and especially the tremendous wisdom and valuable perspective that an individual like Dylan Tatz can give to someone in my (your) shoes. To be able to learn and be guided by such a talented group of people was an enormous help. I highly recommend the organization, program and Mr. Tatz, specially. Thank you Veritas!
I would recommend Veritas based on their school specific expertise and terrific consultants. Veritas was easy to work with and matched me with consultants who believed in me. Working outside of the normal banker/consultant realm, I didn't know what I was getting myself into as far as the application process goes and my consultants were there whenever I needed them.
I particularly enjoyed working with my head consultant, Dylan Tatz, who was always available and always my (constructive) champion. His essay editing and coaching skills helped me open up and present myself to the admissions committee in a clear, succinct manner.
Also, Scott Bryant (Fuqua specific consultant) provided great interview prep. I was completely prepared and at ease on the day thanks to his coaching on the phone and prep questions to take with me.
Anyone would be lucky to work with Dia Draper (Darden and Tuck consultant). She will keep you on task and is always available, going above and beyond what is required.
My experience with Veritas was excellent and I would have wasted a lot of time and energy without their guidance during the MBA applications process. From the moment I signed on, they did an excellent job communicating and engaging me to think about why I was pursuing an MBA and which programs would be appropriate for my personal and career goals. Dylan was always accessible via email or phone and he helped me to see my application through the lens of an admissions committee to shape my candidacy in the best way possible for admittance. From the candidate profile with which I started the process to the various iterations of the essays, the consultants helped me to evolve my application into the best presentation of my real skills and weaknesses. When I had issues with one of my school specific resources, Veritas put me in touch with an alternate resource right away. Though the consultants often juggle many applicants, I found my main consultant (Dylan) to alway be available to listen to ideas or talk me off a ledge when I became overly stressed. The last few days before applications are due are insane, getting applications done a few days before would be better for all parties involved - this is easier said than done as essays tend to evolve towards the submission deadlines. Managing timeframes for discussions between the East and West coast was the only real challenge. Overall, the experience I had with Veritas helped make the tough application process much more bearable. Totally worth the investment.
