Yes - school of my dreams

I worked with Natalie from Accepted.com and had an incredible experience. I highly recommend working with her!

I had free consultations, basically interviews, with 8 different firms. Each lasted 45-60 minutes, but the content varied greatly from conversations regarding a firm or consultant's general approach, to outlining a list of schools and an application strategy, and everything between. Some of the firms will match you with your actual consultant before the initial conversation, while others will tell you that you need to be evaluated before you are matched (or, in some cases, given a few consultant options to choose from).

In my case, I spoke with Natalie directly. Accepted was the last firm that I spoke with, and had pretty much already made up my mind on another consultant, until I spoke with her, and immediately knew that she was the one. Not only did our personalities mesh well, but she demonstrated an incredibly intimate knowledge of the admissions process and the interworkings of adcoms at top-tier schools.

I purchased a 6-school comprehensive package, and hit the ground running. The value that I received from Natalie went far beyond simply editing my essays; we worked on finalizing my school list, updating my resume, crafting my story/brand, each individual school's specific essays, mocked my video essays, mocked my interviews, etc, etc etc. She assisted and provided valuable insight into every single step of the process. In addition, her knowledge of the process saved me an enormous amount of time that would have otherwise been spent researching specific questions that Natalie could simply answer off of the top of her head.

Of course, results are the most important factor, and I have been thrilled with the outcome of my applications thus far. I have several top programs to choose from for R1, and still have two R2 application decisions to look forward to!

Overall, incredible experience, and worth every penny. I doubt I would be in the incredible situation that I am in without the help of Natalie and Accepted!

Consultant: Jennifer Bloom

I absolutely loved working with Jennifer Bloom! Jennifer has a wealth of experience and it shows in her high-quality edits, quick turnarounds, and helpful advice. Her 15+ years of admissions consulting experience and passion for writing are really what sets her apart from those who may have graduated from H/S/W, but don't have much experience in admissions consulting and an interest in writing. I appreciated her honesty, support and warmth as I put my materials together. Highly-encourage those seeking a strong,​ ​value-added partnership to work with Jennifer​ ​at Accepted.​ ​It was a great decision on my part, and I have her to thank as I begin the next journey in my life at​ ​Wharton.

Consultant: Jennifer Bloom

I've used accepted.com's services two years in a row. After a disappointing series of results in my first attempt of applying to schools, I decided to reapply and use editing services by accepted.com - and I'm glad I did. I'm headed to HBS next week!

Throughout the journey, I received excellent guidance and edits on my application material - not just the essays but even the fine details on the application form. No question was too small / stupid.

The consultant (Jennifer Bloom) was very experienced and always responded speedily and with some great insights / edits.

Later in the process, after I received my interview invites - the coaching and mock interviews were also extremely helpful. The feedback was delivered with a "say-it-like-it-is" attitude without sugarcoating the details; this helped me actually do better in the interviews and not just be made to feel good.

Outside the core service, I was also very impressed with how "customer-centric" the other members of the team were - customer feedback, billing, and even Linda herself!

I emphatically recommend accepted.com's services to everyone who is applying to MBA programs.

Consultant: Cindy Tokumitsu

I had the pleasure of working with Cindy Tokumitsu from accepted. Cindy worked with me on several essays and resume- I actually got a scholarship because of one of my essays. Furthermore, Cindy helped me best position myself and answered any questions. Her feedback and reviews were very beneficial and valuable. I applied to 2 programs in France and got accepted into both programs. I am very excited to be moving to France this month and I thank Cindy for her help! In short, I enjoyed working with her as she was very accessible and help me review and critique my essays. I Highly recommend her! She is AMAZING!

I worked with Michelle Stockman on the application to my dream school (US top 7 MBA's). When we had the initial call, I really appreciated Michelle’s advice on my reapplication strategy, which she shared with me prior to us starting to work together.
Michelle later helped me to develop a reapplication strategy: she provided me with great ideas, which really pulled out the most valuable parts of my CV to light.
I also appreciated that Michelle was very easy to reach and replied very quickly. It was very important for me because I was working in tight deadlines. Michelle was very supportive during the whole process.
I eventually was accepted to my dream school and I couldn’t be happier!
I am very glad that I chose Michelle as my application consultant and I will eagerly recommend her to other applicants!

Consultant: Judy Gruen

I finished my draft pf essay only a few days before deadline, and I found that the rush rate of consulting fee exceeded my budget. At the beginning I was going to give up and submit the draft as it was, but Judy told me that I have a strong background but I did not show that completely in my essay. She encouraged me to revise my essay again and try my best to get into my target schools. I soon realized that buying the few hours was the most correct decision I made in the application process.

She replied to all my emails quickly and used every single minute carefully. We almost rewrote the whole essay, she told me what kind of stories in my life are more representative and should be emphasized, which part of my career path should be explained more clearly, and so on. As I required, she spent most of my time on the whole structure of my essay instead of word editing. The final essay was amazing! I used it for two top schools and guess what, I got admissions from both!

Cindy was recommended to me by a colleague at work, and I'm so glad that she was! I worked in a niche consulting firm and was 2 years out of undergrad when I began the process.

I worked with Cindy from very early on in the application process (starting around March or April with a goal of getting out Round 1 applications 6 months later). From the beginning she was helpful in picking schools to apply to, helping me plan visits, getting to know me, starting the "story" process early, and making sure we stayed on schedule.

She helped me craft my story, guided me through first drafts of essays, edited many versions of the essays many times over, worked on my resume, strategized about recommenders, edited short answer questions, helped prepare me for interviews, and even helped me with a scholarship application.

I found working with her, and Accepted.com, to be very uncomplicated. She was fairly flexible around setting up times to talk around my busy work schedule and would always follow through with the items she promised, when she promised.

Cindy has a very straightforward way of explaining what schools are looking for and what the goal is with each essay or resume, that I appreciated. In the end I was admitted to 1 top 10 b-school (which I'll be attending) and 2 top 20 b-schools, and rejected from 2 top-5 b-schools.

I would recommend working with Cindy to anyone!

Consultant: Jennifer Weld

I worked with Jen Weld on everything from general admissions consulting to resume and essay editing to interview coaching. She took the time to get to know me as an MBA applicant and because of that was able to provide valuable insight into how to put forth my best application. Not only was she great with counseling, but she was also very prompt in responding to emails and/or questions (and that is a very big plus when trying to meet an application deadline!). Jen helped me get into a top 25 business school, so I highly recommend her to anyone seeking anything from general guidance to more detailed essay editing!

Consultant: Cindy Tokumitsu

I used the essay editing service from Accepted.com. The reason is simple – they not only check your grammatical errors but also look at your essay theme (whether you are answering the questions). This is important to me because what I wrote sometimes is not what the school is looking for. Cindy Tokumitsu was extremely helpful during the whole editing process, and her turnaround time was always within 2 days.

Additionally, on a personal note, I learnt how to write attractive essays from observing my essays being transformed from the first draft to the final version. The lesson is invaluable.

I applied to only two schools – Booth and Kellogg (PT programs), and both schools accepted me! I know I was not able to achieve such results without Cindy’s help.

I would recommend to anyone the essay editing service from Accepted.com.

Best Decision Ever

This review is for: Accepted MBA Essay Editing

After reviewing many consulting services I chose Accepted.com. I was able to gain insight into the application process just by reading and watching their free content. The impression that they had nothing to hide encouraged me to sign up for a consultation. I knew I wouldn't be getting on the phone with someone hard selling a package deal on demystifying the mystical roadmap to B school. This, in my mind, meant that they would actually focus on the client.

Michelle Stockman was quick to be in touch with me setting a time to discuss my needs. Because I knew I wanted to focus on my essays within the 5 hour budget, I had asked Michelle to work on a proposal that would detail our process. This was helpful for me to see how she intended on working with me. Although we didn’t stick to the plan perfectly, she made sure I was able to accomplish everything I set out to do.

I had a lot of stories to tell for my essays, but I didn’t know how to pull it all together. Not only was Michelle able to help me identify the thread that would string it all together, she was also my sounding board helping me find ways to tell my story in a relevant and succinct way. We did a lot of our communication via email because we were in different time zones, but she wasn’t any less attentive, encouraging and helpful.

I had only applied to 2 schools, CBS and NYU. When I was rejected from Columbia, Michelle was quick to offer suggestions on how to prepare myself to be a stronger candidate if I decided to reapply. I thought this was truly exceptional. Michelle didn’t stop rooting for me just because our time together was up.

Thank goodness I’ve been accepted at NYU! Working with Michelle was the best decision I’ve ever made. I highly recommend her.
