We read, verify and individually confirm each review

How we verify reviews

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

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: Dia Draper

Like many others, I was hesitant to invest in consulting services to assist with my MBA application process, but after a great intro call with Dia (who was clearly the best of the ~4 consultants I spoke with for free consultations), I decided to take the plunge. It was the right choice. Working with Dia was a great experience, and I don't know that I would have had such strong admissions results without her. (I was admitted to Booth, HBS, Kellogg, and Tuck).

Dia is a great listener, and I always felt that her feedback was about helping me communicate my experiences and explain my goals in the most genuine and compelling way possible as opposed to shaping my applications into what an adcom would "want to hear." She was easy to schedule time with, responsive via email, and provided a healthy mix of encouragement and constructive feedback. I also found the mock interviews she walked me through to be very helpful. The questions she asked mirrored the questions I got during my actual interviews, so I felt well prepared throughout the process.

To summarize, Dia is great and I would highly recommend her to future applicants.

Interview Prep w/ Taniel Chan

Consultant: Taniel Chan

During my long GMAT process, I found Veritas Prep a few days before my exam and loved their Verbal content (I was hovering at like 38 and couldn't go higher. Went up 1 point with three days of their verbal content)

I wish I had prepared for the GMAT with them, but remembering that online content and that a coworker of mine had worked with their admissions consultants for her Wharton interview, I reached out to them for interview prep. I worked with Taniel for a 3 hour package as follows:

1st Hour: Crafting answers to tough questions/general career journey story telling.
2nd Hour: 30 minute mock interview + 30 minutes of feedback on answers and guidance on how to improve
3rd Hour: 30 minute mock interview + 30 minutes of feedback on answers and guidance on how to improve

Taniel was super helpful, supportive, and positive throughout. He spent time trying to understand what were core parts of my personality and my story to bring out and was honest about the process, what to expect, and especially in feedback. I don't really have "stage fright" and usually interview well, but my nerves and tendencies to ramble were tackled head on by Taniel. Additionally, the first two hours were over the phone, but since we were in the same city for the last hour, Taniel went out of his way to meet me and do an in-person mock interview which was particularly invaluable.

I am grateful for the experience because I think it made me more focused, relaxed, and confident. All important interview things! Fingers crossed it came through.

I recommend Veritas Prep for their consulting, but particularly Taniel, as he was so knowledgeable and supportive.

Consultant: Dave Gent

Dave has been very helpful in identifying the issues with my application. I did not know which parts of my profile to highlight, Dave greatly helped me there. His knowledge and experience with the schools was really helpful as well, he assessed my application and help me built a strong application focused on the schools. I have never applied to any US school, that’s another area he helped me by making sure I know about the nuances of the application. His assessment of my interview was really helpful as well. I found about my glaring issues and worked on them with his help.

Overall a wonderful experience.

Duke -- Bryan DelloRusso

Consultant: Bryan DelloRusso

I used the 3-school admissions consulting package for Veritas for Fuqua, Booth, and Kellogg. While I thought my Booth specialist was disappointing and Kellogg was just okay, Bryan was a pleasure to work with on Fuqua -- by far the best consultant of the 3. He was extremely knowledgeable and provided me with unique insight on the school and program. As someone who has never even visited the state of North Carolina, it was extremely beneficial having Bryan on my side to provide insider information on what the school looks for and some specific examples that would show I had done my research. He also provided great examples of essays and feedback on my essays. Punctual, well-spoken, responsive.

Consultant: Sophie

My experience with Veritas Prep and Sophie was seamless and absolutely phenomenal. For context, I have a strong network of peers and friends who have gone through the MBA application process. I had a good sense of what the process looked like, but really felt that I needed a personalized sounding board to test essay ideas and address clear gaps I had in my profile upon applying. After a rigorous discussion and vetting with the Veritas Team, they gave me options of consultants to choose - based on Sophie's profile, I knew she would be a great fit.

I approached our working sessions with very direct questions and primarily used the Hourly Package for iterations on my essays and 1 iteration on my resume. Sophie helped me take an introspective lens to my application, and dig deep into my experiences to articulate my best qualities on paper. She was not afraid to be honest - my first essay passed with flying colors whereas my second essay needed 4 drafts to get right - but I could not have done it without her.

Ultimately, I was admitted to 2 of the 4 schools I applied to Round 1, with significant scholarships attached. I am grateful to the Veritas Team and Sophie for their support throughout this process.

Expensive But Worth It

Consultant: Rachel Shelton

I had the privilege of working with Rachel on my full-time MBA applications. Throughout the nearly six month process, she provided incredibly detailed, prompt, and actionable feedback. Her passion and empathy shined through all of our interactions, inspiring me to create work of higher quality than I thought possible. Rachel provided keen insights on how to tailor my message for each school, drastically increasing my confidence in the story we presented to the admissions offices. Typically her feedback came back within 24 hours of me submitting a document for her to review. While the package was very expensive, I think it was well worth the cost. I have not yet gotten applications back (submitted Round 2), but I do not think there is anything else we could have done to increase my chances.

Essay Help - R2 Push

Consultant: Jennifer Foster

Jennifer is the best in the business!─Awesome to work with, highly efficient, and most importantly, so talented at helping craft a compelling narrative.

My primary need for consulting services was help crafting my essays. I first chose Jennifer because she had admissions experience at Stanford, which was my top choice. She wasted no time; she asked the right questions and helped bring a compelling narrative to life.

In less than two weeks, which included Christmas break, she helped me complete 4 essays, this included several iterations on each. Yes she was responsive, but it is the attention to detail, creativity, and quality of work that is most impressive.

If you are serious about getting into ANY business school, then book time with Jennifer before someone else does!

PS I've used other MBA consultants in the past, and Jennifer truly does stand out.

Absolutely worth it

Consultant: Joe Farr

I knew a lot of people worked with consultants for their application to business schools. I thought, of course, it would be useful, but wasn't entirely sure it was as necessary to have one.

After working with Joe I learnt how important it is to work with someone who has done this before and knows the ins and outs of applying to business schools. There were numerous things that I had never considered and that he pointed out, helping me boost my application. I am doing a career switch, so mine was not an easy application, but he took the challenge and helped me research potential opportunities and try to find the best field for me. He also carried out a super complete initial strengths and weaknesses analysis that was the starting point of our work together.

It was a pleasure to work with Joe for a number of reasons. He provided really constructive feedback that made me substantially improve my resume and my essays. He was also very straightforward, candid and never hesitated in telling me the weaknesses he saw and how we could improve them. This is another quality of him that I really appreciated, as these kind of comments were the ones that made me re-think certain ideas or points until I was satisfied with them.

I was pretty demanding with Joe and asked tons of questions, e-mailed him at any time of the day, even weekends, and always asked for his feedback. He was extremely patient and not one e-mail or question ever went unanswered and it was always in a super timely manner. At first I thought of doing an hourly package, but I'm lucky I did not - I could have never fit all the work I did with Joe in an hourly package.

Finally, getting feedback from school specialists and a final review from a admissions director was absolutely valuable too. After working for months with your Head Consultant, it is very useful to receive feedback from an outsider as they always provide fresh comments and ideas.

I haven't heard from schools yet, but no matter what happens, I absolutely recommend Joe and the Veritas team, especially for their incredible hard work and professionalism.

Best Decision I ever made
January 15 | 2018

This review is for: Veritas Prep Hourly Packages
Consultant: Dia Draper

I was a little hesitant when I first researched admissions consulting. The prices seemed high and there were so many different companies and packages to choose from. After applying and being dinged by four schools, I decided I needed the extra help from an admissions consultant to achieve my dream of a top MBA. I ultimately decided to use the hourly service from Veritas Prep. This turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made. I underestimated how powerful the truly external perspective can be for an MBA applicant. The feedback and encouragement I received kept me going when I was down and ultimately helped me craft a great application that got me an acceptance and scholarship. The resources that Veritas has are unmatched. My consultant tailored the service to me and helped me in the exact ways I needed. The hourly service was perfect for me from a value perspective because as a re-applicant, I already had done a lot of leg work previously.

I honestly don’t think I would be in the position I am in now heading off to a top MBA without the help of my consultant and Veritas Prep.

Road to a top MBA

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

Once contacting Veritas they assign you a specialist, I had the absolute pleasure to work with Richard Vincent. Having Richard guide me with my applications made the process easier and less stressful. Working with Richard was very easy, as he would answer all my questions in a timely fashion. I would usually get an email back within an hour, but at latest it would be the next day.
Richard made sure that every part of my application I presented in the best possible way. His feedback was invaluable. Imagine being able to submit your essay to your professor countless times, and every time he would give it back with feedback on what to change in order to make it better? And this process would continue until your professor will give you an A+. So did Richard, he would tell me if I was not fully addressing the essay questions, if I was going off topic, if the language I used wasn’t concise, if the examples I used weren’t strong, also he would give me tips of what qualities I would want to show in those examples.
Regardless of what the result of my applications will be, it is a great feeling to know that you put forward the best application that you were capable of. Of course the MBA applications require a lot of work, but having such a professional as Richard Vincent guide you along the way is extremely helpful.
