Working with Veritas and Max was a pleasure. Veritas had a very structured approach I appreciated. The head consultant and specialist school consultant approach was very thorough. My head consultant was Max Wein and my specialist were Dozie Azotam and Oladapo Bakare. All of which were great. I felt very overwhelmed on how I would craft my story and get it all done on a compressed schedule. Max laid out a very structured approach and guided me through it very efficiently. I am also an older candidate which makes me a bit out of the window of an ideal candidate. Max helped me shine the advantages that I would bring to the table with my greater work experience.

In addition he was very responsive and always available not just for the essays and interview prep but all kinds of general application advice. He was very happy to hop on the phone anytime I needed clarification or input. We worked on the multiple iterations on all my essays. He gave me excellent guidance to start and as we moved along looking back now I can see a huge difference between the beginning and end product with Max's help. I was intially very hesitant to get a consultant due to the cost but I can say without a doubt working with Max was well worth it. I felt great about my applications and the product I put out to the schools and would highly recommend Max to anyone.

I've had an extremely professional and positive experience with Veritas and would highly recommend them to anyone embarking on the MBA application process. My experience with them was very positive from beginning to end. I have a non-traditional background in some ways (scientist), but also an average background and very average numbers. The cost of admissions consulting seems daunting initially, but you also have to consider that it’s an investment in yourself and your future. I decided to utilize the consulting services at Veritas to give myself every possible advantage in the cutthroat world of MBA admissions and I am very happy with the result.

I used Max Wein to help me edit my resume and essays (hourly service) and he was an incredible resource. Max is very knowledgeable, responsive, and always brings a positive attitude to every conversation. After a series of phone conversations to iron out my overall approach and brainstorm essay topics, he had me focus my energy on some areas unique to me that I didn't necessarily think full essay worthy but turned out to be some of my favorite essays. He challenged me to think through the real meaning of my essays and my story and pushed me to answer the questions in the best possible way. I would send him essays that I thought were done and he was great in refining my “story” to include additional personal anecdotes that drove the point more clearly. He was also very helpful in making my essays very crisp, concise and action-oriented (and below the word limits!) The final product really had a bow on it - highly polished and highly unified, which I think is just what admissions officers are looking for.

In the end, I know that I submitted an application that represented me, but the best “version” of me. The stories are told in a way that I would not have thought of on my own. I think Max was instrumental in helping me effectively capitalize on my strengths and communicate my story and I would recommend him to anyone.

Applying to schools can be extremely stressful, especially if you are NOT a good essay writer! My essay consultant Max Wein got right down to business with figuring out my "game plan" for applying. Max used his first hand knowledge of my reach school to really help me. I received consulting for two essays for my reach school and could not have been any happier with the outcome. The feedback was thorough and productive. This proved equally handy since I had to tackle Duke's "Top 25 Things" essay, which caused Max to really get to know who I am, my strengths and weaknesses. Having graduated college seven years ago, Max helped me with all of the ankle-biting gramatical problems that develop over time. Could not have been happier with the basic essay consulting package!

I believe Max Wein was an outstanding MBA consultant. It is hard to judge an mba consultant’s work because it is a unique experience with no frame of reference, but I feel like Max did an outstanding job. He was honest and provided feedback that made sense and was extremely quick to send things back. He was always ready to chat on the phone if I needed him and answered all emails within a timely manner. I believe he truly cared about the job he was doing and put a lot of time into his work. I think we worked very well together and hopefully our hard work pays off.

I worked with Max Wein to complete my application for one of my top 3 school choices. Max was always able to meet when I had questions and to provide feedback when necessary. While my GMAT scores and GPA were competitive for the schools I was applying to, I was by no means a stand out applicant until Max provided his golden touch to my resume and essays. So far I have received invites to interview with 2 of my 3 first round schools, and I am convinced that the help Max provided on my resume and my essays was the distinguishing factor in my applications.

I used Veritas for a 3 school package. I was under a tight timeframe and needed quality guidance, and fast. Max Wein was up to the task. He honed in on the interesting aspects of my background and effectively highlighted these areas in my essays. He was incredibly responsive and attentive. Additionally, his ability to weave different messages throughout my essays, in order to appeal to the particular school that I was applying to, was unbelievable. Additionally, Max did a phenomenal job of coordinating with and staying on top of my school specialist consultants. I am 100% satisfied with my purchase and would recommend him, and Veritas in general, to my friends.
