REAL REVIEWS
YOU CAN TRUST

We read, verify and individually confirm each review

How we verify reviews

Step 1

Purchase Verification

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

School E-mail Address

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: Rachel Shelton

When I started this MBA journey I knew it would be tough but I never imagined how much work it would actually take to get me where I wanted to go. I began looking for a consultant early on because I thought getting professional help, through what I knew would be a very long and complicated process, could be helpful.

After looking at various options, I came across Rachel’s profile and began reading the every marvelous comment about her I could find. I thought, what the heck, let me speak with her. After our initial consultation I was determined to be her client. She was energetic, bright, realistic, and had gone through the same process herself, landing at one of the best business schools that exist. Little did I know that those characteristics were only the tip of the iceberg. Over the next eight months or so of working with her, she would be nothing short of a God send. Our time together would be worth every dollar paid many, many times over. My experience with her came to a point where I would wonder to myself: did I even pay her enough for this kind of service? The answer to the question is a resounding NO. But that’s just the kind of professional that she is. She leaves you thinking not “I feel that the relationship was on net worthwhile,” or “I calculated that the NPV of this business contract was greater than 0” or “that was alright” but instead leaves you thinking “holy $%^&, where the heck would I be today if it wasn’t for her?!” Personally, I think, looking back, the answer would be nowhere near the incredibly awesome situation I find myself in now. What is that situation, you may ask? Debating between the school of my dreams with a very generous scholarship and a full ride at an Ivy League university.

And, you know what’s so great about all of this? Though her help was critical, crucial, instrumental, etc., it was also truly third party, hands-off, and down-to-Earth. She made sure that I got great advice but also that my work was my own. It made the entire process feel not only productive but also genuine. There’s nothing like reading an essay and thinking to yourself “wait, I wrote that?!”

I can spend all day writing about her. I could literally fill pages of comments, anecdotes, and comical moments that arose during our conference calls. I don’t want to do that. It would take the essence out of what you need to do if you’ve read this far. What you need to do is stop, pick up the phone, call VeritasPrep and ask to speak with her. In short order, you will find out for yourself how bright and helpful she really is. If you employ her assistance, you will never regret it.

Consultant: Sophie

I had a great experience with Veritas Prep. My head consultant was a pleasure to work with, very knowledgeable and caring. I had a very tight deadline to work on my applications for first round but she managed to help me organize myself so that I could get everything done. I was admitted at a top 3 BS that was my first choice so I am obviously very happy with the result. I talked with other consultants before I spoke with Veritas and they were very negative and hard to reach. Veritas has a very complete and integrated process that helps you present yourself in the best way possible.

Consultant: Paul Dembowski

I recommend Veritas Prep for business school consulting.

I was initially skeptical about how effective the consulting package can be to enhance my application. I was positively surprised in the end.

Paul Dembowski from Veritas Prep did an excellent job in coaching and reviewing my part-time MBA application for Chicago Booth. I did not think that I had a chance to be accepted at Booth, but Paul went above and beyond in reviewing my application and materials. He reviewed and critiqued my essays numerous times and over countless hours until they became perfect. Needless to say, I was accepted to my dream business school.

Consultant: Larry Sochrin

Larry was short, to the point, direct, and helpful while I crafted my essays and application. I appreciated his help very much and would not have had as strong of a story to tell had it not been for his help bringing my story to light.

The process was difficult, but having the admissions consultant asking me the right questions, I was able to navigate my application process in a way that allowed me to use my time most efficient manner possible.

I would recommend using a consultant, especially veritas prep. The GMAT prep was also an incredible resource for me.

Consultant: Oladapo Bakare

I took 7 hour admission consultancy package with Veritasprep to help for my MIT LGO application. I was assigned with Oladapo Bakare to help me through the process. Dapo's background coming from LGO, his thorough knowledge of LGO admission process and understanding of nuances in essays/resumes helped me a lot. Dapo went above and beyond mere essay reviews but helped me build my application strategically. Although, I haven't heard back from MIT LGO, I feel confident of my chances thanks to Dapo's help.
I would highly recommend working with Dapo especially to candidates aspiring for MIT Sloan, MIT LGO, Kellogg MMM and U Mich Tauber programs.

Veritas Consultant - Bryant

This review is for: Veritas Prep Hourly Packages

Bryant was an phenomenal consultant to work with throughout my application process. Even though I purchased the hourly package with Veritas, he spent significant upfront time (for free) making sure he understood my background and MBA goals. Additionally, he educated me about all of the online resources that came with the Veritas package like their cheat sheet booklets on the top 20 schools.

Most importantly, Bryant helped review my applications, but did not try to change my story. He was effective at making sure my essays stayed true to who I was, while giving me useful advice along the way about how to make sure my impact was clear and written concisely.

Bryant was also really quick with his feedback! Even over the holidays he turned around edits quickly. He made me feel confident in my application, even though it is such a stressful process.

I can recall the day in August when i was bit bewildered with my low GMAT score. however; feeling low on energy and bit exhausted with months of preparation i enrolled for admission consulting with Veritas Prep. My head consultant was Bryant and infused a lot of energy and made realize my potential. He worked relentlessly alongside to make my application go through with the scholarship essays. Bryant packaged my entire profiling in a way that earned me a lot of appreciation from the college to which i applied and eventually made way for 50% tuition waiver. Needless to say, Bryant is an excellent professional who is very clear with the type of consultancy to be provided keeping in mind the profiling of the candidate.

Consultant: Rachel Shelton

Rachel is a wonderful MBA admissions consultant. We worked together for almost a year, and now that I have been admitted to my top choice B-school, I almost regret application time!
Six months ago, I decided to reapply to B-school, and I immediately understood that the first step towards building a strong application strategy was to work with Rachel again. She had been of an extraordinary support and help all along the application process and working together again was the only choice I was 100% sure of.
Rachel has always been present 24/7, for days at a time, to answer any question, sometimes on very short notice. Her availability is amazing! If you have an idea about a particular essay you want to talk about, you can send her an email and she will reply ASAP.
Moreover, after one year working together, I can say that Rachel has a huge talent for being able to help you put clear and simple concepts on complicated, sometimes disorganized ideas. She will undoubtedly help you clarify your career goals or the strategy to adopt to be successful at the end of the application process. As a veteran, I had only a rough idea about the business world, and discussing with Rachel was the best thing I could have done. She made me think and define by myself a clear career objective and a successful application strategy.
She always supported and encouraged me during this year. Sometimes in the application process, especially in case of reapplication, we can sometimes loose motivation. But every time that happened, Rachel was always present to encourage me, to give me new perspectives about other B-schools I could apply to, or to schedule a talk in order to help me find other valuable arguments from my own experience.

If you are looking for B-school application, look no further. Work with Veritas and ask for Rachel, you’ll never regret it!

Consultant: Dia Draper

Hey everyone,

I haven't posted much on this site, but wanted to fill out a brief review for Veritas Prep. I was assigned Dia Draper, who was absolutely phenomenal.

I spoke to all the major consulting companies (Stacy Blackman, Admisionado, Clear Admit, etc) and chose Veritas because a friend had used them previously, and I liked the fact that your consultant has specific AdCom experience at a top school. Dia had worked at both Tuck and Darden previously, which reassured me she really could "put herself in the shoes" of the admissions committee reading your applications.

I chose the two school package, and Dia did an awesome job helping me to really flesh out specifically what I wanted to get from the MBA, what my unique strengths were, and helped me tie it all together. The entire process was super friendly and easy - we spoke on the phone once/week for over a month until I got rough drafts for my schools together, and then she looked at all of them (not just the 2 schools I paid for, although the level of detail and support provided for the schools I paid for was definitely a lot more than the rest).

All I know is: I targeted 5 programs, got into my #1 choice (Columbia), and so far am 3-3 hearing back (got into all 3 schools I have heard from thus far).

I don't think the admissions consulting is NECESSARY, but I think it was VERY helpful and I'm glad I paid for it. Money well spent. And Dia is super nice! I'd suggest asking for her if possible.

Consultant: Nitin Agrawal

I elected to go with Veritas Prep pretty late in the game for Round 1. I chose the 2 school package for Stanford and Berkeley. For Stanford, I had about 3 weeks to to get my application from scratch to submission; for Berkeley about 5 weeks.

My head advisor was Nitin Agrawal, and he was fantastic. Understanding that my deadlines were fast approaching and that I was cutting it close, he did a great job of jumping to it right away.

Nitin was very knowledgeable about every aspect of the process: the ins and outs of both applications, helping me look inward to find relevant essay themes, and providing guidance on those essays. He was very quick to communicate and respond to any questions; it was not unusual for us to text frequently and to talk on the phone multiple times per week if I had questions.

Caleb was my Stanford specialist and he was also fantastic, going out of his way to provide me with research and suggestions on what classes and programs may fit my interests.

The only issue I had with Veritas was that they didn't provide me great access to a Berkeley specialist, as promised. I had limited email communication with someone, but they wouldn't even jump on the phone with me for a quick call. Considering the money paid for this service, I found this pretty disappointing and frankly, pretty terrible customer service.

Overall, I thought the experience was pretty good. Nitin was awesome and I would absolutely recommend him to anyone. The only reason this isn't 5 stars is due to feeling that I didn't really get entirely what I paid for.

Also, regarding results: I was rejected flat our from Stanford (no interview) and it is looking like the same for Berkeley (no interview yet and there's only a few days left). I understand that this is not Veritas' fault - I got a late start and my profile is risky to begin with - but I thought I would share the results as that was of interest to me when I read these reviews.

Bottom Line: Nitin and Caleb were fantastic. Rest of the team: okay.
