Dr. Shel from MBA Admit was very instrumental in helping me achieve my goal of getting into a top MBA program. I am about to graduate from Chicago Booth program and am forever grateful for her help.

I applied to 7 top schools on my first try, with a mediocre GMAT score and a story that didn’t highlight my strengths or aspirations convincingly. I got rejected from 6 schools and actually matriculated with my least favorite one. About a few months into the program, however, I realized the school was not a good fit for me and decided to drop out in order to take another stab at re-applying to my top choice schools. This was my last chance, and if I didn’t get into my dream school, then I knew getting an MBA was not meant for me.

MBA Admit helped me in so many ways! Dr. Shel asked great questions during our sessions to help me crystallize my goals and present them in a way that would resonate with admissions. Dr. Shel also told me to take the GRE to improve my standardized test scores. I scoffed at this idea as I had taken the GMAT numerous times and didn’t want to sit through another standardized test even if it was the GRE. When I was waitlisted on my second try, however, I knew I had to take the GRE again to not only show my ability to test under pressure but also my commitment to the school. At Dr. Shel’s urging, I sat for the GRE one last time and did well (Q-85%; V-average). The newly improved scores, along with other factors you’ll see below, secured my spot at all the top schools I applied to.

Dr Shel recognized the strengths of my profile and advised me on how I could highlight certain strengths for different schools based on her knowledge of the institution—an invaluable insight you can’t get from other resources. In the end, I put together a compelling package that highlighted my career progression, intellectual stamina through academics, my career aspirations aligning with what I’ve accomplished, and my personal story that shaped who I am today.

I think it’s important to get a second professional point of view and try different methods if you didn’t achieve your goals the first time around. As important as having perseverance is having the self-awareness to try something different and course correct so you don’t repeat the same mistakes. Dr. Shel from MBA Admit did exactly that for me —she helped me course correct and now I’m about to graduate from one of the top MBA programs, Chicago Booth.

If you’re having trouble with your application or feel you may have a blind spot in how you’re presenting yourself, then please contact Dr. Shel for advice and strategies. With her consultation and your commitment to execute on the strategies she provides, I guarantee that you’ll get into your dream business school and will be well on your way to your next exciting achievement.

As a result of Dr. Shel’s patience and guidance I succeeded in getting into a top MBA program. Having been out of school for almost ten years, the MBA application process seemed very daunting at first however, with Dr. Shel’s help and guidance the process became a positive experience. I appreciated how Dr. Shel carefully took her time to listen to my story and helped me develop and craft a unique story that truly highlighted my strengths and focused on my work experience for the admissions teams to read. I cannot thank Dr. Shel enough for helping me “tell my story” and gain acceptance to one of the top Ivy League programs. I have since referred many others to her!

As a recent admit to MIT Sloan MBA as well as the recipient of an offer from Columbia/LBS EMBA program, I owe Dr. Shel a huge THANK YOU for her guidance, commitment, and flexibility despite some difficult deadlines. Dr. Shel is a natural coach with a great personality that is quite inspiring - she's great at motivating people as well as at assisting one in developing some 'not-so-clear' plans to result-oriented actions. Overall, her delivery exceeded my expectations in all respects. I strongly recommend potential applicants to top-tier MBA & EMBA programs to Dr. Shel and strongly urge you to become 'good listeners' to her expertise.

MBA Admit is a fully encompassing and personalized consulting service. Throughout my experience, Dr. Shel made an amazing effort to capture all of my qualities as a candidate, and portray it throughout the admissions cycle.

After the first consult, I knew I was in good hands. Prior to speaking with MBA Admit, I had interviewed two consulting services, and still remained on the fence about using their service. But after my initial discussion with MBA Admit, the difference in quality and attention to details were clear.

Dr. Shel knows her stuff and thanks to her, I received acceptance into my #1 choice EMBA Program, Wharton!

I am writing here to strongly recommend Dr. Shel from MBA Admit.com. I was referred to Dr. Shel from someone who got admitted into Berkeley Haas and I am very grateful for the opportunity to have worked with Dr. Shel.

She was extremely helpful from the very beginning. She gave me great advice and helped me realize what my strengths and weaknesses are and greatly helped me highlight my strengths in the essays and the rest of the application materials. I wouldn't have known what to emphasize on if not for her guidance.

She was also extremely helpful in the interview prep coaching session. One great thing about Dr. Shel (I think this is what makes her stand out from the numerous other consultants out there) is that she explained the rationale behind all the choices we made really well; over time, I learned to think like a consultant too. I think this skill will prove useful beyond the b-school application and into my future career.

If you want to receive excellent coaching and personalized service, get your money's worth and learn some skills that will extend well into the future, I'd highly recommend you give Dr. Shel a try - your future self will thank you for it!

Great consulting

Consulting with MBAAdmit is one of the best decisions I have ever made in getting my self more familiar with the Executive MBA program. Dr. shel was very gracious to give me an overview of the most popular and top-ranked executive MBA programs, requirements to get in and ultimately giving me a clear guidance on how to prepare for it. I would have spend a lot of time in researching the programs and requirements without Dr. shel’s help specially because of my already busy professional life with a higher leadership position in my current role. With the top-notch professional consulting services, I got into my targeted program for the executive MBA and would highly recommend the MBAAdmit consulting firm.

Dr. Shel is simply amazing. Without her guidance, I would not have gain acceptance to Wharton.
She asked thought provoking questions to help me verbalize my goals. She was extremely patient with me throughout the process.
She was able to bring out a unique part of my story, which I failed to highlight. Dr. Shel's greatest strength is that she cared about me as an individual and worked diligently to showcase my strengths and bring my story to life on paper. In addition, she will work with you to fix anything that you feel needs fixing.

I would highly recommend MBA Admit to anyone.

Thank You

SIGN UP WITH MBA ADMIT
March 28 | 2017
reviewer identity verified by school email address
     By Megan2017 0 0

My MBA journey began two years ago. I conducted extensive research on MBA programs and spoke with several admissions consultants to determine my chances of getting into a top MBA program. Of all of the consultants that I spoke with, Dr. Shel was the only one that was patient enough to help me figure out what parts of my application package that I needed to strengthen in order to best position myself for my target schools. Every other consultant that I spoke with dismissed me and said that I had no chance of getting into a top program with my GMAT score and my lack of work experience, but Dr. Shel continued to communicate with me and answer each of my questions with such consideration and care.

Unfortunately, although MBA Admit's prices are extremely affordable in comparison to all the other consulting firms I contacted, I was not in a position to enroll with her at the time, and I proceeded to fill out my applications myself. I was devastated when I received rejection letters without interviews from all 8 schools I applied to. I questioned my ability to be admitted into a top MBA program, but Dr. Shel assured me that I could do it and I took the steps she told me to take to strengthen my candidacy.

Dr. Shel really took the time to work with me every step of the way. She revised my essays several times and even gave me additional revisions for the essays that I was really struggling with, free of charge! I could always rely on her to provide timely responses to my emails as well, which was a big help in making the process less stressful. The interview prep was INVALUABLE. Dr. Shel worked with me on each question and made sure I answered them in a way that presented me in the best light and allowed me to communicate my key strengths. I was prepared for every single interview I had, simply because I practiced with her. I knew most of the questions that I would be asked and I has mastered how I would approach them. She also worked with both of my recommenders to ensure that they were answering their questions properly and highlighting the points that MBA admissions committees look for when making decisions. Neither of my recommenders had ever written MBA letters of recommendation before, so Dr. Shel was really a huge help to them.

Fast-forward to two years later, and after working with Dr. Shel I am thrilled to say I have gotten into multiple top programs, and I will be enrolling at my number one choice program with a full scholarship!

I cannot recommend Dr. Shel enough. She is without a doubt the reason that I am where I am now, and I am forever grateful. Work with her and you won’t regret it. She gives you all the value (I'd argue that she gives even more) of any other consulting company at a fraction of the cost. How can you beat that?

Thank you so much Dr. Shel!

I previously applied to several top 7 MBA programs last year. However, I was not admitted to any of the 3 schools I applied to. I was very stressed and frustrated about the outcome and did not know specific ways to improve my profile in order to be successful in my next application.

I was very lucky to find MBA Admit and to work with Dr. Shel. I worked with her in my profile building in which she suggested several outside of work leadership activities that I could engage in, while also have actual beneficial impact to my future career goal. Dr. Shel also helped me brainstorm my stories to present in my application.

Overall, she was very proactive and helpful in and played a key role in my admissions to Columbia. Also, she is greatly experienced in helping candidates get into top MBA schools, so she knows a lot of the tricks of the trade.

I would highly recommend working with Dr. Shel to anyone. Also, the fee of MBA Admit is very reasonable.

Thank you so much

I got into HBS!!!!!

For the class of 2017 application cycle I applied to three schools with a rejection note from all of them. The process was complete demoralizing, especially as I had worked with a larger consulting company and had not gotten an interview at any school. However, I decided to try again for the class of 2018, thinking it was now or never.

I contacted Dr. Shel in the spring for a ding analysis. From that appointment I knew I had come to the right place. She was able to quickly gather where I went wrong and what I needed to do to course correct over the spring and summer before applications begun. She helped me come up with a game plan of what I needed to do to strengthen my profile. In the summer, we began exploring the right ways to package my story for the various schools. This was something that Dr. Shel excels in as I believe she knew exactly what each school was looking for.

Dr. Shel knows what the admission teams are looking for and unlike other companies she really focuses on your recommendation letters, which play a large role! She helped my recommendations stand out to the point that during my HBS interview the admissions team mentioned them!

Without her help, I would have never gotten an interview at HBS and Wharton with an acceptance at both schools! I could not recommend her more! I am so glad I worked with her.


If you are simply looking for a ding analysis, looking for someone to help with one part of your application, or are looking for someone for a complete school package – look no further!
