The decision to work with Taniel was a wonderful one. From the get-go, Taniel took the time to understand my unique experiences and how they would impact my business school application. He was able to identify my strengths and weaknesses, including many smaller details that I had not considered, and provided actionable advice based on his analysis. We worked together to develop a game plan that allowed me to put my best foot forward. In addition, Taniel provided details on each of the schools I was considering applying to that would not be found in a typical Google search and which were extremely valuable when it came time to decide which schools to apply to. I have had an excellent experience with Taniel and regardless of the outcome of my application, I am very satisfied with the service he has provided.

I highly recommend Taniel. He was very responsive and efficient throughout the process. He was always able to give me very helpful and insightful feedback for working on each draft of my essay. Since he attended HBS recently, I felt he could give me advice that other consultants could not. When I initially contacted him, I was very stressed, and had a lot of work to do on my essays. However, with every draft, it got much better, with Taniel's detailed comments for editing and continued support. My essay came a long way with his help, and couldn't have imagined applying without him.

I had a fantastic time working with Taniel, seeking his advice on both my MBA/MPP applications. While Taniel is an amazing consultant overall, there are three things that really stood out for me:
1) His comments and advice are very spot-on, where he is able to point out areas for improvement immediately to make the story a lot more tied together
2) He graduated not too long ago so he is close to a lot of ongoing developments in the school and knows exactly what one should add to his/her application to make it as relevant as possible
3) He truly values your development, even if that means putting in more time than was initially discussed. E.g. sometimes when our chat went over time he'd still continue, if something we were discussing wasn't completed. He even just chatted with me as a friend more about his experience recently after I was admitted.
I'd highly recommend everyone to reach out to Taniel! He was crucial in my applications' success.

The excellent consulting services from Veritas Prep were a defining factor and made a world of difference that helped me get into Harvard Business School!
Applying to business school can be overwhelming, and my Veritas consultants, Kevin and Taniel, were the reason the process felt so much more manageable. They added tremendous value to my application and weren't afraid to challenge me, which ultimately resulted in my submitting a confident, well thought-out application that really illuminated my story, goals and values.
Taniel Chan, my HBS specialist, knocked it out of the park! As a recent HBS / HKS alum himself, he is especially in touch with the current pulse of the school and what resonates with the admissions office. He's incredibly quick / smart and has an eye for both the tactical (essay pointers, diction, logic flaws) and the big picture. I was especially impressed by his mock interviewing and interviewing advice, which both gave me the confidence boost I needed and turned out to be spot on!
And a special shout-out to my head consultant, Kevin Richardson, who at times seemed less like an admissions consultant and more like a career / life coach! He's exactly the tough critic my application needed, and once you've passed his incredibly high standards, you can be confident that you have put your best candidacy forward.

It was a pleasure working with Jennifer! She was able to help me complete my essays for Harvard and Stanford. I had most of the other portions done already, but both MBA schools have ambiguous essay questions it was very helpful to have someone like Jennifer provide guidance as to what Admissions members look for. In the beginning it was a struggle trying to to piece together what information would be useful to have in essays with out overwhelming the reader. After few drafts, with her help, i was able to get the essays down to the correct word count as well. She respond fast and has very good insight and recommendations that helps you draw out more important details to share.

I have bought a few hours of consulting from Veritas Prep, and my experience was very good. I am an international student, so having an opportunity to talk to someone local was very beneficial. Richard has feedbacked my resume, essays and prepared me for the interview. The whole process was very efficient, we talked through Skype for a few hours and exchanged some emails. Richard has given me many practical tips on how to write and talk about myself. I rate the overall experience as very good, I would definitely recommend it to anyone who feels not confident with the application process.

Bryan was a great head consultant for Fuqua. Bryan was very responsible, thorough, and engaged throughout my entire application process. Bryan was quick to respond and invested a significant amount of time going through my essays and application and providing valuable feedback. His extensive knowledge of the Fuqua School of Business and the program's culture, traditions, and community was immensely helpful in editing my essays to highlight the most relevant experiences that fit with the school's mission. He helped me craft my story, and ensure that I was conveying the most impactful examples throughout my essays. Overall, I would highly recommend Bryan as a head consultant for Fuqua!

I was skeptical of working with an outside consultancy, but my first phone call with Jennifer convinced me to work with Veritas on a one school package. Jennifer is wonderful to work with: she is incredibly knowledgable and warm, yet also very honest and will challenge you to put your best work forward. She invests time in getting to know you as a candidate, and I was particularly impressed at how personal my experience felt working with Jennifer. From our initial hour consult to follow up conversations and email correspondence, Jennifer always had constructive criticism to share and ideas for how to bring out my true self in the application process. Her support in this process was invaluable, especially with respect to the essays. You want Jennifer on your team in the application process--investing in her advice is an investment well spent.

I am so grateful to have found Rachel. She is a treasure!
I didn't think I needed help with my resume or essays, but I was wrong! I was initially discouraged by the volume of edits and changes required, and how much time I had to devote to improving my submissions, but quickly came to see that Rachel knew best and that following her advice led to a much better final product. It was painful at times, but well worth it in the end.
Rachel is fast - she always turns things around quickly and her comments are clear and actionable. She also genuinely cares about each person and wants to help you navigate and succeed. I hugely appreciated her upbeat, positive spirit and her keen insights into the admissions process.
Rachel definitely made me a better candidate, and clarified my approach to the entire application process. I feel very fortunate to have benefited from her expertise and would highly recommend her without reservation for anyone applying to top tier b-schools. You will not regret it!

I bought the 3 school all-in package to R2 of HBS, Kellogg, & Sloan. I enjoyed working with Jeremy - he was quick and responsive. I like that VP reviews your application with many tiers of ppl - former adcoms members, alumni students of the school so you can get a lot of feedback. It does seem like a holistic approach and I got some very useful feedback that I thought strengthened my application. It all seemed to be pretty helpful! However, at the end of the day I still didn't get in or receive interview invites and was down $7k. If I'd gotten in to any of the schools, I would've definitely given 5 stars but seems like these things are pretty subjective.
