Fantastic experience! interview coaching

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by school email address [?]

At first, when I received interview invitations from my top two schools, I was ecstatic. Then I panicked. I realized that I hadn't interviewed in nearly 3 years (been in the same job) and that I didn't know what to expect from the MBA interview. While I could read about how to write a good essay or ace the GMAT, I thought that practice was going to be key for the interview. I researched several different mock interview services and ultimately landed on Accepted based on reviews and perceived value.

I was not disappointed! I worked with Esmeralda (a former admissions director at a top program) and had a 1 hour mock interview where we spent about 30-40 minutes working through questions and 20 minutes going through feedback and highlighting pitfalls to avoid. She knew my background (I was a re-applicant and she had reviewed both applications thoroughly) and asked many questions that I ended up getting in the actual interview. She made things very easy- she asked tough questions but in much the same manner as the actual admissions officer that I interviewed with asked them. She was knowledgeable about the school and knew which parts of my application the school would want to pick on and dive into. She prepped me for several questions I actually got and I was able to give fantastic answers on interview day because she had asked me the questions, forced me to think about them and then given me feedback on where I could shore up my answers.

Overall, the service from Accepted was well-worth the cost and instrumental in getting me accepted to my top choice school! Thank you very much to Esmeralda and Linda and the entire team for such a wonderful experience!
