How we verify reviews

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

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: Taniel Chan

Purchasing a VP school package is the largest purchase I’ve ever made. I can say without a doubt that because of Taniel’s help, it was also the best decision I’ve ever made. I would highly recommend Taniel as a Head Consultant and as a School Specialist to any applicant.

VP connected me to Taniel based upon my background and our collaboration styles. Before speaking to Taniel I was skeptical of how this matching process could possibly work, but the match was absolutely perfect. As a non-traditional applicant coming from the public sector, Taniel helped me believe that I was capable of going to a top school, and helped me craft my story to make that dream a reality. After my first call with Taniel I decided to apply to six top-10 programs (four M7).

Despite the time difference and a hectic workload, Taniel was incredibly responsive and went above and beyond his role as a head consultant. Taniel gave me the organizational structure I needed to be successful for what could have been an overwhelming process. His consistently detailed feedback pushed me to think deeply about my motivations, not only helping me put forward a strong application, but also helping me articulate my long-run aspirations in a way I couldn’t before working with him. Admissions consulting isn’t about crafting a narrative, it’s about helping put forward the truth in the most compelling way possible, and Taniel truly made that possible for me. Most of all, it was clear that Taniel truly cared about my success in this process, which helped me stay level-headed throughout when things could have been nerve-wracking.

With Taniel’s support, I received interviews to three M7 schools, SOM, and Haas. I’m humbled to say that in the end I will be headed to an M7 on a full-tuition scholarship. Taniel truly changed my life, and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to work with him.

Consultant: Jennifer Foster

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.

Consultant: Rachel Shelton

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!

Consultant: Jeremy N. Krell

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.

Consultant: Jorge Fontanez

Jorge from veritas was my Head consultant for NYU stern application. Jorge is very knowledgeable and guides you in the correct direction. He was very helpful and fast to respond. I was running close to the deadline and Jorge was very prompt to put in his suggestions and he has a lot of patience. He is also very clear in the way the application should be. In our first call, Jorge gave a clear direction and guidelines on how to approach the NYU essays. When I had my first edit with Jermey's help Jorge Fontanez reviewed it and gave some valuable suggestion and that helped me to get best essays.

Consultant: Rachel Shelton

Rachel is FANTASTIC!!! Her advice and feedback are incredibly poignant and helpful. She is also VERY timely with her responses.

Rachel and I worked together for about 7 months. She helped me with all the ins and outs of my application, including resume, essays, and general application questions. Her guidance and emotional support transformed the process for me. She helped me figure out how best to tell MY story which is so important when thinking about the application process as a whole.

I am so grateful for having worked with Rachel. I ended my application process with acceptances from my top two choices and have committed to a top 4 program. Her help enabled me to get where I am today - I recommend her without reservation!

Consultant: Richard Vincent

I strongly recommend Richard if you want a consultant who will understand your personal story and pull out the key salient points that will resonate with any business school admission board. Richard helped me get into my top business school selection. My primary reason for selecting Richard was his strength in this specific M7 school I wanted admission into, but his strong professional background I thought would help pull out aspects of my application that would be most attractive to the adcom, and that is exactly what he did. He was able to review my volunteer and full-time work experiences and best pull out the right parts that resonated with my reading audiences, even with close friends that have attended M7 schools that reviewed my essays. Most importantly, Richard was able to take my length essays and compress them into high-impact crisp stories as I initially struggled with creating concise talking points within my essay. Overall, Richard was invaluable in my business application and I wholeheartedly recommend you get him if you want someone who works magic on applications!

Consultant: Jorge Fontanez

In my MBA search, I made the decision that I would only apply to top programs. If I was going pay high MBA Consultant fees, I would have to use the best services.
This search led me to Veritas. I paid for the 3-school consulting package and worked with 4 consultants. My experience with Jorge was extremely unique. My initial drafts never seemed to be good enough. I would write a paper that I felt was gold and he would shred it. He gave me plenty of feedback and challenged me to not settle.

My negative attitude was immediately dispersed when I compared my final and initial drafts. I was extremely proud of myself because the essay was completely mine, yet it was so professional and reflective of who I was as a candidate. Through the many phone calls and email messages, Jorge helped me to dig deep, pull out my specific strengths and weave them into a story that was both comprehensive and enjoyable to read.
This is why I enjoy working with him so much- he pushes you to tell your story using your style. If you do not know what your style is, he helps you to find it.

I got into IE Business school and will be transferring to Yale in August.

Consultant: Joe Farr

I'm from Australia and opted for a 3 schools package with Joe Farr as my main consultant. I chose Veritas because of its tailored approach in which I could mix and match my team of consultant to best suit my needs, goals and working style.

Joe was sensational! Despite the fact that I am across the world from him, I have developed a strong relationship with Joe. He took a lot of time upfront to understand my profile, goals and personality. I think that this was key for him to be able to help me successfully craft my story, identify my strengths and weaknesses and how to increase my chances of admission. He dedicated a lot of his personal time to help, and I'm truly appreciative of that. As a finance professional who also has a property development and accounting background, I will be using the MBA to transition into sports management/marketing. Joe shares my passion for sports and marketing and hence, this was a great fit. He really helped bring out my passion whether it was over our hour-long (sometimes 2 hours) Skype calls or lengthy emails.

Despite delays on my end, Joe accommodated my last minute questions and was even promptly responding to my questions via email on the due dates of applications. His customer service levels were exceptional. He also helped me work with the different school specialists to ensure the best final product.

Joe also took the time to meet me when I flew to the US for interviews. If you want a truly personalised approach and someone who will demonstrate a vested interest in your future, you definitely want Joe on your side! Aside from professional help, it was an absolute pleasure to chat with him and hear about his experiences. A great guy!

Consultant: Colleen Hill

I worked with Colleen, who was a great fit for me because of our mutual interest in social enterprise and sustainability. As a current MBA student, Colleen was able to really help me think through my school application list based on my interests, and she was able to bounce ideas around for schools because she had recently gone through the application process herself. This was especially valuable, because she helped me narrow my focus to a few great schools that would be a good fit for me. Colleen was also able to offer valuable, relevant application and resume feedback. She was eager to help and was supportive throughout the entire process. Highly recommend.
