Wharton Admit

Consultant: Dr. Shelly Watts

I was determined to enroll in either Harvard or Wharton for my MBA, and I could not have achieved my acceptance to Wharton without the assistance of Dr. Shel and her team.

MBA Admit was recommended to me by several friends at top 5 programs, and I was very happy with my decision to use the service. Although I considered several other consulting programs, the price point of MBA Admit was significantly below the competition and the value I received was exceptional.

Dr. Shel provided great advice for how to focus my applications on my strengths, and how to tailor my essays and letters of recommendation to each school. My letter writers especially appreciated the advice and tips that were provided to them, as MBA Admit made their job significantly easier (and made the ask much less intimidating on my end).

If I were to do the process all over again, I would select MBA Admit without hesitation.

Best Bang For Your Buck

With a long laundry list of things to do, the application process for B-School is quite daunting. Look no further and go with the MBA Admit team.

I had great time working with Dr. Shelly Watts. She keeps an open mind to help craft the best application for you. From the onset, just like many candidates, I conducted due diligence on finding the right admissions consulting services. I spoke with with six other consultants. To be honest, the other consulting services charge super expensive prices for untailored corporate speak. Whereas, Dr. Shelly Watts stood out with her AFFORDABLE prices, strong insights into the application process and knowledge on the attributes of the top MBA programs.

Overall, I was accepted by a top-7 MBA program. I cannot thank Dr. Shelly Watts and the MBA Admit team enough for helping me gain admission to my dream school!

The right guidance

Consultant: Dr. Shelly Watts

Dr. Shel brought the pragmatic guidance that I needed to make admissions to a top EMBA program a reality. Without her sound advice, experience and expertise, and careful reworking of my story I am convinced I would not be where I am now.

From the very beginning Dr. Shel asked great questions to get to the core of what material we could leverage from my history. There are so many amazing things we have all achieved, yet we may have spent no time reflecting upon them. She was great with getting these ideas out and walking through how we might use them. I certainly had a few weaknesses in my history that we needed to work through like a low undergrad GPA.

I really trusted Dr. Shel with this process and followed through on her guidance. She also helped me with interview preparations which was very helpful in my own practices. Her fees are more than reasonable, especially compared to all of the big shops. I would completely recommend Dr. Shel without hesitation, she has helped me achieve one of my dreams!

Dr. Shel helped me shape and organize my essays in an efficient manner. As an international applicant with a technical background, I really appreciated the way she helped me craft my message and selling points. For us internationals it can be difficult to know how to craft an essay with a message that has just the right amount of "bragging", and this is something Dr. Shel did very well.

The application process can be stressful but Dr. Shel helped me manage all aspects, essays and recommendations, efficiently.

Given the great value of this service compared to other companies, I can definitely recommend it to other applicants.

MBA ADMIT - Great experience !

I'll keep this direct and to the point, after all...if you're going to B School, you'll need to learn concision. :)

After evaluating several popular programs, and speaking with a few representatives, I settled on MBA Admit. I have absolutely no regrets, and I highly recommend Dr Shel's services. Three words come to mind: responsive, professional, detailed. Dr Shel met agreed upon deadlines without fail, provided high value input/feedback, and never missed the small details that matter the most.

I made contact with Dr Shel through her website, and I was contacted via email in less than an hour. By the end of the 2nd day, we were discussing school selection, due dates, and the details of my personal profile. These early discussions would soon evolve into multiple phone calls, emails, and document revisions. The process was high touch, and well-managed.

You will have to work hard to get into a top tier B School. Your seat must be earned. Dr Shel cannot change your academic record, work history, and life experiences. What she can do however, is to provide you with sage advice, concrete and actionable feedback on your applications, and a framework for addressing any weaknesses in your submissions. She will help you to hone your narrative and put your best foot forward.

I was admitted simultaneously to the EMBA programs at Kellogg, Ross, and Mendoza. I eventually decided to attend Kellogg, my first choice. I completed my MBA studies in June of 2015.

BOTTOM LINE:

You will not regret making Dr Shelly Watts a part of your MBA journey.

Good luck.

When I originally contacted Dr. Shel, the thought of attending a top EMBA graduate program did not seem attainable or within arm’s reach since I had been out of school for 15 years and my undergraduate GPA wasn't the best. However, after speaking with her, SB MBA consultant, and a few other firms, I knew Dr. Shel was the best fit. She was very authentic. I remember that in the first consultation (prior to hiring her services), I told her I wanted to apply to two EMBA programs, but was really leaning towards the program that was local and an easy target. She immediately stated to me that I needed to give the better, top-ranked b-schools a shot. She said that based on my professional successes she thought I had a great chance of getting admitted. I started with the Gold Service package, and she looked at every single facet, from my professional IT experience and academic background to community services activities, and bundled it all together to create an excellent strategy that worked for me. Since my cup was half-full – 15 years of work experience with a low undergraduate GPA – she zeroed-in on my other strengths and built me a strong brand-image. During this process, I had several interviews and effective coaching sessions with Dr. Shel. I would have not applied if she hadn't inspired me. And I believe I wouldn't have gotten admitted if she did not have the natural ability to help others reach their dreams. She is a great executive coach! It was a pleasure working with her!

Great Experience with Dr. Shel

I had a fantastic experience working with Dr. Shel of MBA Admit when applying to business school. Coming into the MBA application process as a some what non-traditional applicant, I wasn't sure how to best navigate the whole admissions process, and how to best tell my story.

Dr. Shel and MBA Admit were incredibly helpful throughout this process both in advising on high level strategy as well as providing detailed advice on the various essays. She even provided some much needed interview advice heading into that stage of the process. All at a very competitive / affordable price. Moreover, Dr. Shel was easy to access and very responsive.

In the end, I was admitted to 3 top MBA programs (CBS, Wharton and MIT Sloan) and eventually attended CBS with a scholarship to boot. None of this would have been possible without Dr. Shell's help. She's really a fantastic MBA application coach!

Successful Reapplicant

Consultant: Dr. Shelly Watts

I am a Brazilian lawyer. I applied for 3 schools in the 2014-15 season with limited success - only admitted to a safety school I was not willing to go to. In March I engaged Dr. Shelly's services for a ding analysis. Her analysis was perfectly accurate. She believed in the potential of my profile and blamed the lack of success on the the poor presentation through essays and resumes. With her careful supervision I got admitted to both Yale, which had denied me admission the previous year and Tuck, which I thought was a too far reach for me. I even got a significant scholarship. I am 100% sure I would not have been able to get there without Dr. Shelly's help.

I was referred to MBA Admit from a successful prior client. I also received very positive news. I was offered a place at INSEAD! I thank Dr. Shel very much for all her help and support! I highly recognize and appreciate the value added by her to my application packages! Dr. Shel was very responsive and addressed all the needs in time so that I could meet short deadlines. Dr. Shel was ready to support beyond the expected scope and I truly enjoyed the chance to learn a lot of very important information related to principles of admission to business school.

INSEAD admit

I am a European candidate and wanted to apply to INSEAD only. I had a very tight time schedule to achieve the R2 deadline. I had several talks with different admission consultants and I then opted for Dr. Shel from MBA Admit.
It has been a great pleasure working with Dr. Shel. We were able to finish the application on time for R2. We had two rounds of editing for my essays, one recommendation review and a high-level feedback on my resume. She really did a great job on the essays. Her feedback on my resume was invaluable. Her work was on a high professional level. As a result, I have been admitted to the INSEAD MBA program.
