Veritas Prep - Emily A

Consultant: Emily A

Veritas's depth of experience and comfort with the entire MBA application process was evident from the get-go. Originally, I planned to apply for August 2019 matriculation. After using Veritas's online GMAT course and receiving a much higher score on my first try than anticipated, I decided to explore applying a year early. At this point, it was already mid-August. Luckily, the first deadline for my top target school (and the only school I ended up applying to) was set for less than 6 weeks away.

By the time I matched with Emily, she already knew my situation and was more than willing to work hard alongside me to meet the approaching deadline. Throughout the process, her responsiveness, logical approach, willingness to explain (and re-explain!), and depth of knowledge were crucial in helping me get accepted to my dream school.

In regards to her style, I'd implore anyone looking for hand-holding, coddling, or commiseration to look elsewhere. Her logical and objective approach suited me extremely well, but it may not be for everyone. One piece that really stood out was Emily's ability to meticulously tailor my story and profile to suit not only my application profile but my school-specific application profile.

I'd highly recommend Emily and Veritas to anyone seeking admissions consulting. It was a great experience, and she added a ton of value to my application!

Consultant: Emily A

I shouldn't need to tell anyone this, but the application process is a long, rough journey. On any given week, I would be working on essays, refining my resume, networking with school alumni, participating in extracurricular activities, and, of course, working full-time. As a result, one of the things I valued most in a consultant was efficiency. Enter: Emily.

If responsiveness and punctuality weren't top characteristics you were considering in a consultant, think again. Emily went above and beyond in this regard, and I truly believe that made all the difference. What's the point of thought-provoking feedback if you have you have to rush to implement it? I can't guarantee this for everyone, and I certainly didn't expect it for myself, but Emily usually returned a full essay review in less than a day - and by that, I mean I would email her Monday night, and she would return it Tuesday morning. This incredible turn-around time was a valuable luxury in an otherwise hectic process.

Another aspect I really appreciated about Emily was her feedback style. She is a straight-shooter, and would immediately re-direct me in times of uncertainty. That's not to say she was insensitive - because that's not true - but she was candid in her review and I really valued that. I didn't need someone to make me feel good about my writing, I needed someone to understand my story, review my work, and help me get into business school. The end result? I got in!

All this to say, if you get the chance, I highly recommend working with Emily.

Consultant: Michael T.

Mike has been an amazing consultant and support system as I have been applying to MBA schools. He has been great at helping me manage my time and understand how much to spend on GMAT, essays, recommendations, interviews, etc. Mike was always available to talk whenever I needed and would check in with me when I was busy with other work or personal obligations to make sure I was staying on track with the application process. I would have not been able to get through this process without Mike's assistance and mentoring. I would highly recommend utilizing Veritas Prep for admission consulting, and even more so if someone could have Mike as their consultant.

Travis is the best

Consultant: Travis Morgan

Travis was a fantastic consultant and I believe he is why I got into a top ten program. I originally applied to 4 schools using a different consultant and was rejected from all of them without an interview. I always knew that it would be difficult to get into the top schools coming from NYC and having a finance background, but I had not anticipated getting rejected from every one. I then applied in the last round to a school just out of the top ten and was accept for the following year.

I decided to reapply and had spoken with Travis multiple times as I was choosing what to do and eventually chose him to be my consultant. From the very beginning he spent a lot of time asking about me and pulling out every detail from both my professional and personal life which became super important later as we were writing the essays. He then discussed how I should approach a reapplication and really hammered home what was different about my application. As a former journalist, he is fantastic at extracting the important details and making my background sound unique.

Over the next few months he spent countless hours going back and forth on drafts to make my essays fantastic. One of the biggest differences between Travis and my prior consultant was that he always made himself available to walk through changes as he worked with me to come to a finished product we both thought was great. I was also very impressed by his knowledge about each school and what they were looking for in an applicant.

As a result, I reapplied to 2 top ten schools and got into the one that I wanted. I couldn’t be happier with the whole process and the results. I would recommend Travis to anyone who is looking for an extremely knowledgeable consultant that will work tirelessly with you to develop the best application for you. I believe he cares just as much about you getting into school as you do.

Consultant: Taniel Chan

Taniel Chan went above and beyond in helping me prepare for the Harvard Business School 2+2 application. He gave me very high quality, timely, and definitive feedback on everything from my resume to internship opportunities that I was considering. He is very experienced with this process and made me feel very comfortable following his advice every step of the way.

I could always count on Taniel to listen to and understand my story, and give me personalized advice that you could never find in a business school admissions book. While being very definitive in his answers and helping me prepare the best application possible, Taniel was supportive and encouraging every step of the way. With his help, Harvard Business School's 11% acceptance rate seemed much less daunting. I would recommend his services to anyone who is seriously considering business school -- it is such a competitive process, you want to make sure that you are in the right hands.

Consultant: Purvi Tank

I had a wonderful experience working with Purvi. She was the head consultant for my 3-school package. I had only 6 weeks until the school deadlines when I started the process so I had a lot of anxiety. Purvi made it really easy for me. She was very insightful in helping me brainstorm my story during the initial call and gave me a lot of valuable input in essay writing in terms of structure and content, ensuring that the story was presented the best way possible for each school I was applying to. Purvi is not only great at what she does but also is personable and encouraging. The MBA application process was stressful. Whenever I wanted to talk about any part of my application, whether it’s about my essays, resume, recommendations, schools, or interview prep, she was always there to answer my questions and address my concerns. She has a very quick turnaround and is flexible to work around my schedule when needed. I applied to 3 schools (top 10), got invites from 2, and admitted to my top choice (so I withdrew from the other invite). It wouldn’t have been possible without Purvi’s help. She is super knowledgeable, reliable and friendly and I highly recommend her! I was worried that spending thousands of dollars on admissions consulting might not have been a smart decision. But looking back, it was worth every penny!

Consultant: Michael T.

After an initial conversation I opted for the hourly package with Michael, who was great from the start about offering me the flexibility to work on whatever elements of the application I felt needed the most attention each week, while also providing suggestions on where to focus at each stage. Michael provided a quick turnaround for any drafts I sent his way, and was always able to talk within a day of reaching out. He made it clear that he respected my time, providing detailed comments on any materials prior to our conversations to maximize my time with Veritas Prep's services. His insights have been invaluable in helping me to frame my story and leverage each piece of the application to tell a cohesive story. I would absolutely recommend Michael to anyone looking for reliable, friendly help with their MBA application process.

Top notch

This review is for: Veritas Prep School Packages

I worked with Emily on a 3-school package in a round w/ 7 total applications. I only had ~6 weeks from start-to-finish, so I didn't have very high expectations for the quality of app I'd be able to produce.

Emily helped me in ways I'm not sure I'd have been able to help myself. I sometimes struggle with project management, but having her to keep the train moving when I felt tired, beat, etc. was invaluable. She was able to keep things moving even while I was 9 time zones away _and_ during the holiday season.

The application felt like a marathon, not a sprint (even in so short a period), and w/o Emily I'm not sure I could've gotten into my top-choice (HSW).

Consultant: Emily A

I was very happy with my experience with Emily! From our first conversation, I felt that we were on the same page and she understood my work style and time constraints. We used our time to focus mainly on essay questions and she provided me with the feedback that I needed to get into my first choice school. Emily helped me to shape my story by first brainstorming essay prompts and then through very specific recommendations and constructive feedback. Her school-specific guidance was also extremely helpful in further refining my application. Emily is very professional and responsive. She helped demystify the process and the experience was exactly what I needed to get accepted. Highly recommended!!

Consultant: Neil Chong

Neil provided the guidance I needed to get into my first choice school. I was initially overwhelmed with the whole application process, I went to an undergraduate program that didn’t require an essay and my non-traditional background made it difficult for me “brand’ myself. Neil focused on my strengths and helped me put them in the best light, as well as identified areas of weakness I would need to address. Neil quickly responded to all my questions and concerns with clear direction and patience and was motivational in the interview process when I was having doubts about my abilities to impress the admissions staff. I had a strong undergrad gpa but needed to retake my gmat score to become a more competitive applicant so we structured a plan where I could apply for schools in my current GMAT range and possible increased score. I was able to increase my GMAT score significantly and was accepted to 5 of the 6 schools that I applied to, all with generous scholarships of over $50,000

I wouldn’t have been able to put forth such a compelling application without Neil and cant recommend him enough.
