How we verify reviews

Step 2

Identity Verification

We verify the reviewer's identity through one of the following:

Official GMAT Score Report

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.

Consultant: Montu Gupta

Working with Montu was exceptional; I could not have asked for a better consultant to assist me through business school applications. Montu is a kind, thoughtful, and seasoned consultant when it comes to business school applications and although we differed in our professional industry specialty, he was always loyal to my path and story.

My journey to acceptance was a long one. While we were preparing for applications, almost two years ago, I was offered a promotion at my company. After accepting the promotion, we took a break so I could personally relocate and reevaluate whether or not I would continue applications at a later date. Once I recommitted to the process, he was willing and able to pick-up where we left off.

Applying to business school is indeed a beast of a process and having an outside perspective on application materials as well as process expectations were something I truly needed. I'm beyond thankful that Montu and I were paired up through Veritas. His calm intelligence coupled with his light and energetic focus helped me immensely throughout this stressful yet essential moment in my professional journey.

I'm beyond proud to share that not only was I accepted to the school we worked on, but I will be attending the University of Toronto's Rotman School of Management in the fall. Montu was a key player in my path to business school and anyone who gets the opportunity to work with him will set themselves up for success.

Review for Emily A

Consultant: Emily A

Emily has been an extremely helpful, meticulous and responsive consultant through the entire B-School application process. She is very quick in her turnaround and gives her honest opinion with constructive feedback at every step. Her working style suited me very well, and though I only had an hourly package with Veritas, Emily helped me maximise the utility and output from the limited time I had. I started the application process late, but thanks to Emily's timeliness and valuable inputs, I was able to get into two great schools and on the waitlist at three others. I'm glad to have had Emily as an advisor through this process!

Consultant: Taniel Chan

My experience with Taniel was extremely positive. I originally bought only 3-hours, but decided to add on several more hours given how helpful his help was. Taniel was of huge help in writing the essays. His comments were always spot-on and relevant. He would catch flaws that I hadn't even thought about, showing me he was very experienced in what he does. Taniel was very good at communicating over email and responding in a prompt manner, which was extremely important to me. I fully recommend Taniel if you're looking for help or guidance in the application process due to his targeted and methodical approach.

Consultant: Taniel Chan

From start to finish, Taniel was with me every step of the way as I successfully gained admission to HBS!! He actually offered to first meet me on campus so we could get to know each other while he gave me a tour (he was about to graduate from HBS himself).

I had originally anticipated working with an older, more experienced consultant, but I was quickly impressed with Taniel's knowledge of the application process and felt that his fresher perspective and personal experience would be valuable.

Particularly for HBS, I felt like Taniel was well-equipped and extremely helpful throughout the essay writing process and interview prep. He was instrumental in helping me craft a story that would resonate with the admissions team. For the interview, Taniel immediately sent me a list of questions to think through, and we scheduled an hour long session for a mock with some time for feedback. He structured it exactly like my actual interview and dug deeply into each of my answers. Taniel was candid, direct, and very engaged, and I felt that the hour we spent together was critical in preparing me for my interview.

Overall, I had a great experience with Veritas and would highly suggest working with Taniel. Thanks again!

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: Rachel Shelton

You could not be in better hands than Rachel’s. I worked with Rachel for ~8 months from the doldrums of the GMAT, through the essay writing phase, up until admission. She was there at every turn and offered invaluable advice and guidance at every step. She goes beyond what you might expect from a traditional consultant and really makes an effort to get to know you and understand your long-term goals and how an MBA fits into that plan. The structure Veritas has in place is pricey, but worth every dollar.

I would adamantly recommend Rachel to anyone looking for an MBA consultant and know firsthand what a great resource she is to MBA-hopefuls like myself. Rachel will always give you candid, and sometimes tough, feedback on all aspects of your application and helps you position yourself to be the best possible candidate you can be. I recommend her without a single reservation and if there was a 6th star I would give it!

EMILY IS INCREDIBLE. I kind of knew where to start my MBA journey, but not as much as Emily. She has years of experience in placing candidates with SUB-PAR PROFILES INTO TOP PROGRAMS. During our first phone conversation, she quickly assessed my strengths and weakness and honestly suggested where I should focus my efforts during the first stages of the process.

Throughout the entire process, Emily was always available to chat on the phone, even if it was to have a tough conversation about taking the GMAT/GRE again. She was always warm and A JOY TO SPEAK TO.

When crafting essays, it's important to know that you only have one shot at submitting the best essay possible. Going through multiple essay edits with Emily and the school-specific consultant ensured that I would submit a well-crafted essay that was a great representation of me and how I fit in the respective school. HER TURNAROUND FOR ESSAY EDIT SUGGESTIONS WAS ALMOST SAME-DAY.

I would not hesitate to recommend Emily and Veritas to anyone wanting to maximize their profile to business schools.

Consultant: Taniel Chan

I reached out to Veritas early on in my business school journey and it ended up being one of the best decisions I made last year.

I worked with Taniel on the school-specific consultation for HBS and ended up being admitted. Taniel constantly emphasized the importance of telling my story, being realistic with my goals, and making sure my narrative and the way I described my past experiences made sense. When we first started working together, he encouraged me to not just stick to my original writing because I had already written it - he pushed me to rethink the entire process and rewrite. That ended up being one of the best pieces of advice I received in the whole process.

Taniel was always accessible, very quickly gave feedback, and was motivating and direct throughout. When I received an interview for HBS, Taniel helped me thoroughly prep and answer interview questions through a practice run - this was fantastic!

Overall, I am very grateful that I was able to work with Taniel. I highly recommend working with him!

Consultant: Taniel Chan

Taniel was my Head Consultant on a 4 school package (Wharton, MIT, Haas, Booth) and provided ancillary tips for me to apply to an additional 3 schools on my own (LBS, HBS, GSB).

Taniel was instrumental in helping me navigate and tackle this large task; writing seven Round 1 applications was never going to be an easy task, but Taniel helped me overcome it one sentence and paragraph at a time.

During the application writing phase, Taniel provided extensive support and guidance on how to optimise my written application. He certainly helped me put my best foot forward and I have no regrets about the final outcome (Offer for London Business School MBA 2020 class; still on MIT Sloan waitlist).

Overall, I feel Taniel did a fantastic job and I would highly recommend him as a Head Consultant and as a School Specialist, due to his in-depth, insider perspective at HBS & GSB.

Taniel is:
1) Very creative and strong at story telling - extremely helpful in crafting and structuring my application narrative arc by spending extensive time carefully listening to my stories and experiences. He picked out and highlighted the most pertinent points to include in my essays, which I would have struggled to do on my own. Through his suggestions and insights, my original draft essay evolved significantly throughout the process.

2) Eloquent and expressive - helped me bring my stories to life with great suggestions on vivid wording and phrasing of certain paragraphs. This allowed my personality to fully shine through in the right way.

3) Structured and supportive - created timeline and objectives “gant chart” to keep track of progress. Continuously encouraged me to stay focused on making progress, which enabled me to complete all 7 applications with time to spare. Helped me navigate this big task in a minimal stress manner.

4) Highly knowledgable about the HBS & GSB processes - was kind enough to give me tips and tricks on how to navigate these extremely specific processes. His experience and familiarity gave me confidence and comfort in my application; he helped demystify these blackbox processes.

5) Direct and candid with feedback - always had a substantiated/reasoned opinion on why he liked / disliked any sentences or paragraphs I had written. Gave thoughtful suggestions on how to improve the essays.

6) Always cheerful and positive - always a pleasure to interact with, was a big factor in why I chose to work with him over many other consultants I spoke with.

Great Experience with Dave Gent

Consultant: Dave Gent

I started my experience with Veritas Prep with my target schools selected and resume and essays written but wanted a neutral review of my work. Dave Gent turned out to be an excellent fit! He was helpful from the very beginning and quickly shared ideas on how to highlight my strengths and improve my weaknesses. You could tell right away that he is an expert on the admissions process and really understands the different cultures at the top schools. He brought up points that I would have never thought of, and I was very appreciative of those important insights. When I compared the materials I started with to what I actually submitted, it was like night and day. He always offered good solutions and thoughts that helped focus and shape my story. Additionally, Dave created a game plan with me on a weekly basis. I was able to turn my revisions around quickly and he accommodated my tight timeline to get everything completed. I would highly recommend Dave regardless of what stage of the application process you are in!
