We read, verify and individually confirm each review

How we verify reviews

Step 1

Purchase Verification

We verify that the reviewer was a client by comparing the email address they provide with the company's database.

Step 2

Identity Verification

We verify the reviewer's identity through one of the following:

Official GMAT Score Report

GMAT Club Membership Term

School E-mail Address

Step 3

We manually process all reviews, and if a review does not meet any of the prior criteria, the review will not be posted.

Step 4

We pay $10 for each GMAT Course and Admission Consultant review only if we are certain it is a real review. If we cannot verify it, we won't issue a giftcard for it and we won't publish it.

GMAT Club requires that users verify their identity before posting a review.

Consultant: Katharine Lewis

I have recommended Katy to everyone I know applying to business school. She is a wonderful consultant and far outshined any competitors in my initial 30-minute evaluations. She was most helpful in helping me craft an overarching story, and succeeded because she took a tremendous amount of time getting to know me. In many ways, I felt that she had a much better idea of what I should be doing with my life than I did myself. Katy was also very effective with interview prep, and spent as much time with me as I needed in order to feel confident and prepared. I could not be happier with my experience working with her and my end result!

Consultant: Angela Guido

I first met Angela through the Forte Launch program in February 2017. From the moment she presented how to communicate your life narrative with quotes and tips from Joseph Campbell's, A Hero's Journey, I knew she would be a source I could rely on to help me craft the best version of myself to share with AdCom for bschool apps. All of her webinars were succinct, clear and engaging - particularly, her insight into how to best communicate your accomplishments in your resume and essay. I found her advice inspiring, yet practical. Her resume template and tips were especially helpful and by following the suggestions closely, I was able to make my resume really stand out. Also, I have been using the hero's arc method with all of my essays so far and its been tremendously helpful in making each one a compelling read. Above all, however, Angela has helped me to reframe my approach from "how to get in" to "how to help the adcomm understand who I am." This authenticity approach has made the process more enjoyable. Hopefully the adcomm appreciates it as well when they make their decisions! Thank you Angela!

Consultant: Lynn Moloney

I was incredibly impressed by MBA Mission as a whole and Lynn Moloney in particular. Look no further for excellent assistance throughout the application and admissions process.

I come from a fairly unconventional background as an MBA candidate. I was a liberal arts major and spent most of my 20\'s working in various capacities in the world of start-ups and small businesses. Lynn was incredibly helpful in helping me orient myself in the selection, application and interview process.

Perhaps most valuably, Lynn helped me to condense my career narrative into a coherent and compelling story that was easy to communicate. I highly recommend Lynn and mbaMISSION!

Best,
-Eric

Consultant: Nisha Trivedi

It is an understatement to say I would not have gotten into business school without the help of Nisha from mbaMission. Throughout our one year working together, Nisha was a guide and thought partner I could count on. Her thoughtful feedback, rapid turnarounds, and ability to leverage other mbaMission resources made a huge difference in my candidacy.

Nisha got to know me pretty well, despite just working on an hourly engagement. Thus, she was able to give me personalized feedback at all levels: from clarifying and tightening essay language to guidance on how I could improve my overall applicant profile. Nisha provided this feedback consistently much faster than the 2-day turnaround requirement. To drive this point home: Nisha returned feedback on an essay to me within 24 hrs while on the flight to her wedding. Nisha also went above and beyond by pulling on other mbaMission resources to help me. For example, Nisha asked her colleagues for feedback on one of my video essays and shared valuable content on what specific schools look for, which was not something you could find anywhere else.

In summary, Nisha was an essential partner on my journey to business school, someone I could rely on to have my back at a moment’s notice. I can’t recommend her or mbaMission highly enough!

Consultant: Brian Eng

Brian Eng and I worked over the course of roughly 2 months on the application process to get into my desired MBA program. I was working roughly 10-14 hour days at the time in consulting and was very burnt out of having to wake up even earlier than normal or working later in the evening on writing papers. Brian made the process both manageable and as painless as possible. His fluid style and targeted suggestions allowed me to not only create the best possible application that I was capable of, but was also instrumental in having me achieve my target dates at each predetermined interval. On top of making me a better writer and applicant, Brian was personally a delight to work with. Maintaining a positive attitude and adding personal color to conversations helped me keep my sanity on nights where I would be writing well into the morning. Brian is world class at what he does and he is proud of his work, as he should be. I wouldn't be in my first year at Cornell (my top target school) without his dedicated help and guidance.

I certainly did. I was not afraid of tests and essays, but I was terrified about talking about myself and my journey. A lot of my fellow MBA applicants fall into this category - we have nebulous, wishy washy thoughts about our strengths and career dreams, and don't know how to crystalize them into a story. Angela completely changed that for me. Unlike other consultants and advice-givers, Angela starts with YOU as the individual, and forces you to reflect very deeply about yourself. For her, the process of career mapping is central to the MBA process, and everything unfolds from there. Career mapping should also be fun - and with her, it is! She brings a positive, humorous approach that is incredibly valuable during this often harrowing process. After working with Angela I not only feel crystal clear about my career goals and story, I also feel great about myself and my decision to pursue an MBA. Instead of dread when someone asks me "why do you want an MBA," I actually get visibly excited to share my story. How great is that? Thank you, Angela!

Consultant: Jessica Shklar

As non-traditional student with very few personal MBA connections, the application process seemed incredibly daunting. After being recommended Jessica by another non-traditional applicant who received admission at Wharton, I was undoubtedly impressed by what she brought to the application process. Not only was I accepted to the school of my (and my wife's) dreams, Jessica brought a layer to the application process I would have never discovered on my own. The sheer magnitude of self-discovery, through her method of consulting, not only helped me evaluate what I wanted from a school and how to write my applications accordingly, but what I want to accomplish both during and post-MBA. Her insights not only helped me receive admission, but helped me draw a better picture of how I want to market myself in my job hunt. I would strongly recommend Jessica to anyone wanting to apply to a top MBA, especially non-traditional candidates.

She understands!

Consultant: Angela Guido

During an interview at a well known record label, a hiring manager looked at my resume, then me, and said with exasperation, "I don't understand why you are applying for this job. Your path makes no sense to me." While I had a clear vision for the path I wanted to take, I've struggled to help others understand. Angela is the first consultant who has understood my career path and my future goals within minutes. She saw connections that I see, but which I've struggled to communicate to others. In just the first session alone, Angela provided clear advice with tangible action items that gave me confidence to move forward with the daunting MBA application journey. Her passion for learning and understanding others is infectious in the best way, and she is just as strategic as she is warm and insightful. Would recommend her 10/10.

Consultant: Katharine Lewis

I wouldn't have been accepted to business school without Katy's advice and perspective. I only applied to four schools (Stanford, Haas, Ross, and Foster) in the 2nd round. As a military applicant deployed to Korea, Katy always made sure to accommodate me despite the fifteen-hour time difference and my hectic schedule. Katy understood and explained how to polish each piece of my application. Katy's insight into translating military experience into essays and in my resume, were particularly helpful.

Ultimately, I was accepted to my top school. I can honestly say that I do not think I would have been admitted without Katy’s help. I strongly recommend her service, particularly to applicants with non-traditional backgrounds.

Consultant: Angela Guido

I met Angela at the Forte MBALaunch 2016 Kick-Off event in Houston (she was a panelist) and through a series of webinars hosted by the MBALaunch program, and from the very beginning I saw in her a genuine individual, with lots of energy, ready to rock and roll. I contacted her in early July 2016, a bit late for R1 applications, and immediately confirmed my interest to work with her for R1, regardless of the tight schedule. What I loved about her was how genuine and straight forward she was when it came to discussing my school choice and the depth in which she wanted to get to know me to gain a better sense of what was the best fit for my goals. She didn't just look at my stats (country of origin, GPA, GMAT score, among others) but went deeper within my experience (personal and professional) to understand my goals and dreams and always encouraged me to apply to my top choices. She helped me identify my strengths and weaknesses in such a way I ended up recognizing extremely important aspects of my life I had, for a long time, taken for granted. Angela became my life coach and led me to discover many attributes, opportunities and room for improvement in other aspects I had completely disregarded as part of the application process. Her good vibes, straight forward advice and awesome energy were key to push myself beyond my limits and deliver three complete applications in less than two months!!!! During the process (essays and brainstorming), she helped me to be 100% empowered with my story, my origins and my goals, regardless of how atypical they were, especially during the interview process, a time in which my nerves skyrocketed!

The results were unbelievable!!! I was accepted to all three (top 5) schools and I'm happy to say that I will be attending HBS in the fall!

As I look back on my application process, I couldn't feel more thankful for having Angela by my side in this self-discovery journey, not only because of the fact that she was key to make this dream come true but also because, thanks to her, I now feel empowered with who I am and ready to keep betting on myself!

I highly recommend reaching out to her. You'll see it for yourselves!
