REAL REVIEWS
YOU CAN TRUST

We read, verify and individually confirm each review

How we verify reviews

Step 1

Purshase 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

(Admissions consulting only)

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 $20 for each GMAT Course and Admission Consultan 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: Nitin Agrawal

My experience with veritas has been amazing. I signed up for the admissions consulting package in 2015, however it wasn't until late 2016 did I have the GMAT credentials to apply to my selected school. Veritas stayed with me throughout the process, encouraging and advising my progress.

Upon starting the consultation with Nitin, I found him incredibly knowledgable, experienced and proficient at communication. He helped me develop strategies for each of my schools, draft essays and provide the honest feedback I needed. Additionally he was always a text message or quick email away.

Beyond working with Nitin I found the Specialists and Directors for each selected school to be valuable assets in crafting unique and compelling applications. The whole team really exceeded my expectations. I will definitely recommend any candidate to go with Veritas Prep.

Ijeoma is AWESOME!

Consultant: Ijeoma Arum

Without knowing much about business school application process, I stumbled into choosing a three school package with Veritas Prep. I am glad to say that it was one of the best decisions I have made to embrace this daunting application process with less stress and more hope.

When I first started with Veritas Prep, I was assigned to work with a consultant who's based in Hong Kong. Although the time difference was not an problem, I found him extremely unprofessional because 1)he was very late for our very first Skype call 2) he was totally unresponsive for over a week during his vacation in August, one month before the round 1 applications were due. Gratefully Travis from Veritas Prep was there to change my consultant to Ijeoma immediately after receiving my feedback. I was very impressed with how professional Veritas' action in this situation.

In stark contrast to my first experience, working with Ijeoma has been absolutely pleasant because she is responsive, honest, and super supportive. She was really helpful in revising my resume to highlight my achievements throughout my professional career. Additionally, she was fantastic with providing honest and useful feedback to refine the structure and language of my essays, helping me tell stories in my own voice. When I was getting anxious about admission results, Ijeoma was there to encourage me to be hopeful and continue working towards my goal. I would not be able to survive this application process without the support of Ijeoma.

I highly recommend Ijeoma as an admission consultant to anyone who hopes to get into a great business program with superb help and a solid support system.

Consultant: Nick Alexander

Nick was a great resource while I was applying to MBA programs. I worked with him on my applications for three MBA programs. He was easy to work with and always found time to make himself available. His responses were always timely and he showed his insight of the MBA process. His comments were both useful and informative. The lessons I learned while working with Nick even helped me with the applications that he did not work with me on. Nick added a lot of value to my applications and I would highly recommend Nick for someone applying to MBA programs.

Consultant: Tiffany Hughey

I worked with Tiffany Hughey through Veritas Prep using their hourly package service after working with MBA Mission. I would definitely recommend Tiffany at Veritas for any school that you're working on. Rather than providing vague ideological steering points (which are mostly useless in the MBA application process), Tiffany provides her own input and touches on specific evidence to highlight. It is quite obvious that Tiffany invests herself personally in the process and she delivers her input in a manner that is encouraging and comfortable for her clients. Tiffany provided tangible value in the hourly package, and I would strongly recommend anyone looking for a consultant to reach out to her. P.S. - she turns around material a.s.a.p. (sincerely appreciated that Tiffany).

In this environment of "customer of one", Tiffany makes you feel like you are her only priority.

Consultant: Caleb Jonas

I applied to 3 schools with him. He is genuinely really engaged and interested in learning about your story so he can help you tell it the best way possible. Really helpful in thinking thru the essays and providing constructive feedback that will push your writing and get your essays to the level they need to be. He is always available, very responsive and is willing to put in plenty of time if you so require. At the same time, Caleb is also very good at walking you through an expected timeline, organizing next steps and keeping your whole application on track. It's a very necessary support system that you will need during this process. I highly recommend him as an advisor during your MBA process.

Consultant: Larry Sochrin

I enrolled in Veritas Prep School Package in 2015 which I extended to 2016 as well. Working with Veritas Prep was a great pleasure. My consultant really worked with me on building my profile, reviewing my resume and essays. I received a lot of inputs from their whole team about my applications. The inputs were quite insightful, these helped in making my application strong. My consultant was readily available on emails and calls. The best part was I got honest reviews about my candidacy and applications. The whole team really exceeded my expectations. I will definitely recommend candidates looking for admissions consulting to go with Veritas Prep.

Consultant: Rachel Shelton

Do not look any further - Rachel Shelton is a PHENOMENAL MBA CONSULTANT!

I'm a non-US national, and I always wanted to get an MBA in the States, but I was frightened for years of the daunting process. Furthermore, I was worried that I wouldn't get into the program that truly I wanted. My low confidence and work experience in an underdeveloped financial market worried me about my eligibility, thus I continually delayed my applications. Reaching my 30s, I grew more anxious as my eligibility seemingly declined further since B-schools would consider me to be an 'older candidate'. I had no idea what to do nor how to secure a seat at an M7 school. Everything changed when Veritas Prep assigned Rachel Shelton as my Head Consultant.

Getting Acquainted:
During our initial call, I was immediately impressed by Rachel's friendly, light-hearted and encouraging tone when discussing my situation. Her in-depth knowledge and wealth of experience on the admissions process suddenly made things much more approachable. Speaking to her considerably reduced my anxiety and allowed me to adapt a mind-set to get cracking on the tasks ahead. For the first time ever, someone had shown me light at the end of the MBA tunnel.

Resume:
Rachel provided me with solid and clear guidelines on how to spruce up my Resume - a core component of any MBA application. We worked to revise and rework the document, and the end result was truly mind-blowing. Rachel was able to lean out my work experience points to help me create something highly impactful. She could even see through a lot of the 'elaborative' language and made me focus on being clear and honest. It was here when I first realised indeed how accomplished I was, and that the best strategy to apply in any application is to be as honest as possible. To top things off, we finished the Resume in just a few sessions! Rachel truly brought out the best in me on one side of paper!

MBA Applications:
Given my age, I decided to diversify my applications amongst 6 top-schools, of which 4 were M7, as I realised that this year would be my last chance to have a good shot at a traditional MBA. Rachel provided me with detailed insights on how to approach the essays and tailor my responses for each school, but she did this in a way that encouraged my own research to hence create a more organic essay. This led me to become highly enthused about each school and knowledgeable on its respective offerings, and this came through in the essays that I wrote.

B-school apps are never easy but by working with Rachel, I never felt exhausted because I knew that I had her guiding hand to pull me through. For each school application, I would complete the essays (i.e. an average of 3-4 essays per app) and request her feedback on all of them. Rachel reverted extremely promptly (24-48hrs max) and in full detail, being very transparent on what she was thinking and how to improve my paragraphs.

Don't be surprised if she asks to you scrap an essay and start over, because she knows exactly what she's talking about, leading you to writing something much much better! With that said, Rachel has the patience of a saint; given that I applied to 6 schools, each having an average of 3 essays, I must've gone through 4-5 drafts of each essay for each school, ultimately writing essays that were near perfect.

Rachel is an empathetic and motivating individual who related well to my situation. She accordingly made the whole writing process fun, fueling my best efforts even on the most exhausting of days at the office. Everyday, I found myself wanting to rush home, grab my laptop and really work off of her suggestions to write something stellar. If I really had a problem, she was always available for any email queries or a call. This momentum enabled me to finish off all of my applications weeks within Round 1. Yes, you read that right: 6 applications all done weeks before the Round 1 submission deadline! And this was despite the fact that each application opened merely a month before the same deadline!

Acceptances:
Rachel guided me throughout the interview process, and helped me prepare my best responses. One cannot imagine how overjoyed I was in receiving 5 interviews and subsequently 4 acceptances, of which 2 schools offered Merit Scholarships! I was utterly shocked as my cohort in all of the schools were waaaay more accomplished. I never thought that I'd have a choice in deciding amongst schools. I finally chose MIT- a school that is nothing short of an absolute dream come true! I could not have done it without Rachel.

Results:
You can rest assure that Rachel will be your critical success factor in obtaining admission to a magnificent B-school, thereby leading you to realise your true potential. Rachel is one of the most sought-after consultants, so it's best to start as early as possible with her and work on a quick turnaround time. This will make life easier for both you and her, enabling you to submit the best possible application well in advance.

My family and friends could not be more proud and I have Rachel to thank. Having her as an Admissions Consultant was wonderful and the experience was extremely enriching. Despite being done with my applications she continues to provide me with moral support and guidance on the challenges that lie ahead, particularly concerning my move to the States. This is extremely valuable for any international student.

Overall, Rachel Shelton is just the person you need and will be dedicated throughout to turning your B-school dreams into reality. She is a person who really means it when she says, "I'm here."

Veritas helped me get into HBS

Consultant: Tiffany Hughey

I can honestly say I would not have gotten into HBS without Veritas MBA consultants. The process to applying to business school is shockingly stressful and time consuming. You are asked to be incredibly self aware while also very authentic. All while you know you are competing with some of the smartest and most articulate people in the world. Tiffany helped me understand exactly what the school is looking for (which is not immediately intuitive), how to bring out my story, and structured my journey on a week to week basis so that I can put out the best product, even while balancing a demanding job and family responsibilities. When I was discouraged, and there were many times I was discouraged, Tiffany encouraged me and kept me positive. She truly cared about my success and did extra work to help me put my best foot forward. The school specialists and former admissions directors were also invaluable resources to help me shape my application, and gave me confidence going into the interview that I had a competitive application. This is just not something I could have done on my own. I am very grateful!

This review is for: Veritas Prep School Packages
Consultant: Richard Vincent

My Veritas Head Consultant developed a detailed plan for my applications and provided guidance every step of the way. Richard helped me with selection of my recommenders and in providing them with an outline of what they should highlight. We went through a methodical process in outlining essays and then elaborating them until they were ready to go. He was very attentive throughout the process.
The School Specialist provided detailed background on the school that allowed me to write a more personalized essay for each application.
I enjoyed the process and would recommend it to anyone going through the MBA application process. I didn’t feel rushed during the applications and I believe that I submitted the best application that I could with the help of Veritas.
