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

Consultant: Rachel Shelton

I was initially a little skeptical about using a consultant for my business school applications, particularly after receiving some pricing quotes. However, after discussing the merits of working with a professional with some of my colleagues / MBA alumni, I reached out to Veritas (ended up selecting their Prep School Package for three schools) and was paired with Rachel Shelton.

Selecting Veritas was probably the best decision I made in my application process. I also think very highly of their process that matched me with Rachel as she was a perfect adviser for me. She is upfront and honest with her feedback, but delivers this feedback in a positive way. She is also incredibly responsive - I honestly felt like she was working solely with me (even though I know she had a few other clients) just given how responsive and invested she was. Finally, not only is she a great writer, but she also practically "gets" what schools are looking for. She was almost as knowledgeable about all three of the schools I applied to as the school specialists were.

I ended up not only getting into my dream school (the top school in the country), but also receiving a very large scholarship to my second choice school (a top three institution). I don't think I would have written an essay half as compelling without Rachel's comments. She gave me the confidence to write in my own voice and not play it safe with the essay. She also was a great sounding board throughout the entire process, including helping me plan for when I should take the GMAT and what scores I should aim for.

It was so helpful to have someone to talk with throughout this process, especially someone as intelligent and thoughtful as Rachel. I cannot say enough great things about her opinion and personality, and I strongly recommend her to anyone who would really like to get into a top 3 program.

Consultant: Michael T.

Veritas was very helpful in putting together and reviewing my applications. I received insightful feedback for every step of the application process from my head consultant, Mike Trudeau and my school specialists. Mike first began by helping me select schools that best fit my profile and worked with me on my overall story, resume, and essays. Mike helped me define my application story and make sure it was clear, attainable, and applicable for the schools I was applying for. The school specialists and director feedback went through my essays with a fine tooth comb to make sure I didn't miss anything. Their feedback helped me tailor my essays specific to the schools and make sure I highlighted the most important points about the school and why it was a fit for me. Overall very happy with the Veritas experience.

Consultant: Matt Margolin

I used Veritas to apply to some top American MBA programs and I strongly recommend Veritas to all the International students like me! I am from Europe, engineering background, 4 years of work experience in product management and decent GMAT score.

I choose Veritas because I studied using their books to prepare for my GMAT exam. Their preparation books are excellent, probably the best books you could find on the market. I visited their website which I found very useful and clear and I decided to buy the 3-schools full package which gave me a comprehensive package of unlimited hours of consulting to help me to prepare the applications for my schools.

Everybody at Veritas was extremely helpful and friendly with me. Jenn from the head office gave me a great support helping me during the process and the School Specialists provided me tons of information about the schools and detailed feedback about the strategies to use for the different schools. The School Specialists are either alumni or people who worked in the admission office of that specific school.

I believe that the real priceless resource they provide is the Head Consultant. The Head Consultant follows you from the beginning (brainstorming and school research) until the end of the process. I cannot count the hours that Matt, my Head Consultant, dedicated to me and my applications. He really helped me the get the most out of my essays and his help was fundamental to find the best story and the best way to present it. He was always available to provide suggestions and constructive feedbacks - we even had a call during Thanks giving day!!

I applied to R1 and I got early accepted to one of my top schools with a generous fellowship. I believe this would have not been possible without Veritas and Matt.

Consultant: Andreea

Andreea took the time to get to know me and helped me come up with an effective way to best represent myself. After out first skype session it was clear she had a strong sense of who I am and what's important to me.

Aside from the basics (useful timelines for getting each part of the app done, answering general questions, etc.), she consistently gave me prompt, thorough and insightful feedback.

Her comments on my essay outlines and essay drafts were particularly helpful. It can be so difficult navigating the essay prompts, but she had clear and consistent advice that helped guide me forward.

I really felt like she was in my corner and am so glad she helped me through this process.

Consultant: Dia Draper

I could not have made a better choice in choosing Dia Draper and Veritas to guide me through this process! She was less of an admissions consultant and much more like a life coach whom I now count as a good friend. I recommend her without reservation. (Dia has an incredible personal story - to watch her inspiring TedX speech, skip to 3:41 here... http://bit.ly/1Y5bTlb)

I chose the two-school package, and for a period of many weeks and countless hours over the phone (and meeting in person), Dia wasn't afraid to hold back and asked thought-provoking questions and challenged me to work through the why's behind the what's. Paired with former admissions directors who review your entire application as schools would see it (the Veritas people are legit!) and the insight of the school-specific alums who recently graduated, choosing Dia and Veritas was really was a no brainer.

The result? I was accepted at a top five school with a scholarship. But like anything else, you get what you put into it. Like developing and executing strategy for any business, applying to and getting into a great MBA program means figuring out a game plan for "what you want to achieve and how you want to achieve it." If you go into this process willing to lay your soul bare and sift through the good, bad, and ugly, then regardless of the admissions result, you will have come out a more enlightened individual.

I had the pleasure of working with Bryant from Veritas Prep when I was preparing my applications to business schools. Bryant was extremely responsive, articulate, and showed a genuine interest in helping me to create the best application possible. Although my GMAT score was at or above the median for each of my target programs and I had three solid years of what I felt was solid work experience, my undergraduate GPA was less than stellar. With Bryant’s help I was able to craft essays that showcased what made me a unique and qualified candidate for admission. Additionally, Bryant also provided an excellent review of my resume and helped me to decide who to ask to write my letters of recommendation. Bryant understands what schools are looking for and knows how to create a winning application where the applicant’s strengths outshine their weaknesses. I applied to four programs and was accepted to all four! I highly recommend Veritas’ admissions consulting services (Bryant in particular) to anyone applying to MBA programs.

Veritas Prep - Great Program

Consultant: Nitin Agrawal

Nitin was a great consultant. He provided great feedback and was readily available. Even the school specialists were very helpful. They gave great insight about the different programs, especially since it was difficult for me to visit them with my work schedule. The program is as good as advertised. My background is male, mid 20s, Southeast Asian and in finance. This is a very typical background for someone applying to MBA school so I knew going in I needed to differentiate myself through my essays. Nitin was very helpful in crafting a story and making it appealing. I greatly appreciate his help and would recommend Veritas Prep to others applying to MBA school.

Consultant: Daria Burke

After much hesitation, I took the plunge and gave into admission consulting services. The price is steep, but the peace of mind knowing school specialists are looking over your application is well worth it instead of having friends and family review countless essays. Given background and goals, Veritas linked me up with Daria area my head consultant.

Daria and I instantly clicked and I felt like I had someone in my corner. With a month and a half before my R1 deadline, she helped me quickly finalize my resume and craft my story. (I cannot emphasize how important it is to have a genuine, clear and cohesive story is no matter where you apply.) After confusing essay reviews from school specialists, she helped me decipher what I need to edit in order to submit the strongest package. Every step up of the way, she was there. I couldn't imagine doing this process without her!

I was fortunate to be paired up with Bryant for my admissions consulting with Veritas prep. I was initially skeptical as it seemed expensive and wondered whether it would be worth the money. I was blown away with the level of professionalism and expertise that Veritas and my consultant Bryant brought to the table. Originally I was focused on some schools that were a real stretch for me, but he was able to get me focused on some realistic goals. He also consistently went out of his way to help me, giving me additional advice, and tips on what it would take to get into a top school. I could not have submitted stronger applications with out Bryant. Thank you Veritas, and thank you Bryant for all of the help.

Consultant: Rachel Shelton

I thank my lucky stars that I was paired with Rachel Shelton as my consultant.

1) Rachel is super smart. She has the kind of intelligence that impresses smart people. Her in-depth industry expertise is staggering. As accomplished individuals looking to get into top MBA programs, we’re all smart. That being said, Rachel is one of the most intelligent people I’ve ever met.

2) Her response time is incredibly rapid. Barring any emergencies, Rachel has always responded to me within 24 hours, including weekends and holidays. Her work ethic is an inspiration in and of itself.

3) Her feedback is always thorough and excellent in quality. I could tell she read every line of each draft that I provided. Her reviews are detailed and comprehensive, every time.

4) Rachel is a masterclass in good mentorship, coaching, and consulting. In her infinite patience, Rachel’s feedback is always positive and optimistic. It’s easy to be blunt when you know so much more than someone else – being nice takes effort. Rachel always focuses on the positive, but not at the expense of quality. She offers constructive, practical, and insightful advice that will bolster your motivation, not stifle it.

5) Rachel is just an all-around amazing human-being. You’re going to be sharing a lot of your personal life, professional life, dreams, and aspirations with your consultant. It’s always easier and to do so with someone like Rachel who is kind, encouraging, empathetic, and caring.

Rachel’s industry-specific knowledge, practical advice, continuous availability, and rapid turnaround time alone are worth the price of admission. The fact that she’s a wonderful individual who’s a joy to work with is icing on the cake.

Hire Rachel Shelton – she’s simply the best.
