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

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.

Consultant: Nick Alexander

I purchased a couple hours to talk with someone about the direction I wanted to go with my essays. I got much more than that. Nick was an incredible help, spent much more time with me than I purchased, and spent over an hour "off the clock" getting to know me and my goals. He followed up with some admissions guides on the schools I was applying to, was prompt and thoughtful in his feedback, and even jumped on the phone with me the night before my interview to do a mock one and wish me luck. Keep up the awesome work!

This review is for: Veritas Prep Hourly Packages

I worked with Veritas Prep and signed up for the hourly package. I applied to Cornell, UVA, UNC, UT, & Duke. I was invited to interview at every school. I have been accepted to UVA with a full ride, wait listed at Duke, and accepted at UT. I have not heard from the other programs. I doubt I would have been this successful without the valuable help from my Veritas Consultant Bryant. The money I invested in admissions consulting has had an incredible return and I have been able to attend UVA's MBA program. I would highly recommend Veritas and more specifically Bryant to anyone looking to apply to top MBA programs. Bryant was able to work with me in a highly collaborative approach and was immensely helpful in almost every aspect of the application process.

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.
