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

Dr. Shel was absolutely amazing and worth every penny! With her help I was accepted to both of my top two EMBA choices, Wharton and Columbia!

She is very thoughtful, responsive, and was able to thoroughly explain exactly what the adcoms look for and how to recraft your "story" to present you as the best candidate possible. She was particularly helpful with revising my resume to make it really stand out (not being afraid to self-promote) and to create cohesive essays that were tailored to each adcom.

Without a doubt would not have gotten in without her help!
Happy client and would recommend her to anyone looking for admissions help!!

When it comes to hiring admissions consultants, I really am skeptical because it is difficult to put a value on what they do but I am glad I got to work with Dr. Shel on my admissions applications. Her work on my applications was invaluable.

She actually cares about you and your application and she is interested in hearing your stories and finding out the points that will resonate with the admissions officers.

From the initial interviews to the essay reviews, to working with your recommenders and preparing you for your interviews, I got the feeling that I was more than a client. I was like an investment. And that investment paid off; I got into Kellogg, Tuck, Yale, and Haas with at least 50% Scholarships from all of them.

I will say this; she will go the extra mile to ensure that your best self is put forward and even though you must pay for a service, what she gives you is more than your money can buy.

I wish I could give her more than a 5-star rating.

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

Dr Shel did a fantastic job on reviewing my reapplication to my dream school and helped me secure an admit. I don't think I would have made it without her professional services. Given the number of application documents, it was quite a daunting task to handle the paperwork all alone and on top of that my previous reject at the same school was weighing down heavily on me. Dr Shel was able to piece out all my hidden achievements and also suggested professional choices that could enhance my application. She was able to handle my requests on schedule adjustments very well so that I could balance work and application. I endorse her services 100%.

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.
