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: Taniel Chan

Having unexpectedly received an interview for HBS, I decided to seek some professional advice for the interview itself, and contacted Veritas Prep, who put me in touch with Taniel.

Despite being in the middle of his exam week, Taniel was extremely helpful and responsive to my messages at short notice.

Taniel's extensive experience and advice were invaluable in helping to situate the mentality of the interviewer, and bringing out the best mentality for the interviewee. We went through a series of mock interviews, and I was given feedback on improving the logical flow of each answer, as well as general advice about Harvard and the MBA program.

I would definitely recommend Taniel's help for anyone interested in advice and help for their MBA applications.

Consultant: Rachel Shelton

I cannot say enough good things about Rachel. I was originally planning to apply in Round 2, however my GMAT score was not where I needed it to be. I ultimately decided to try one more time to get my GMAT score up and felt comfortable with applying in Round 3 (even though I knew it would be a risk) because I knew I would have Rachel's guidance along the way. I signed up for a 3 school package with Rachel as my head consultant. She was so knowledgeable about each school and the entire admissions process. She helped me transform my resume and then when it came time to work on the essays she was responsive and specific in her feedback so I was able to really craft a strong essay for each school. Rachel also made it a point to really get to know me and my "story" so she knew what points I should be highlighting in my essays. With each revision (for some schools it was 6 or 7 revisions) she would review quickly and get me clear feedback. She was also immensely supportive and encouraging along the way, which I needed throughout this daunting process. By the time I sent my essays to my school specialists for review the feedback they had for me was minimal, since Rachel had helped me get them in great shape. Although I only signed up for the 3 school package (NYU, Wharton, and Columbia), I was applying for 6 schools in total (HBS, McCombs, and Johnson) and decided to also purchase an hourly package to get Rachel's help with the other 3 schools. Her expertise, insight, and thoughtful feedback was invaluable to me and I am so glad I got her help in some way shape or form for the other schools. At the end of the day I got admitted into 4 of the 6 schools (including HBS where I have decided to enroll), got waitlisted at Columbia, and got waitlisted at NYU with an offer to be admitted with a scholarship for the following fall. All of this with Round 3 admissions! I know I could not have done this without Rachel's support and guidance. I felt she was truly invested in my success and her energy helped keep me optimistic and focused on the prize. I cannot thank Rachel enough for helping me achieve this dream.

Consultant: Joe Farr

I’ve had the privilege of working with Joe over the course of 9-10 months and I must say… what an incredible experience! From the very beginning, Joe identified my weaknesses and developed a roadmap to address them.

After I took the GMAT, I was upset with my score, as I was a full 100 points below the average of my target school. As the final rounds approached and given my work experience, I decided not to retake the GMAT and to proceed with my school application. As an applicant who was applying on the final round with a low GPA and low GMAT, one thing was certain, my whole application had to be stellar in order for me to even have a slight chance of getting into the school I was aiming for. With Joe’s guidance, we completely revamped my CV and we spent quite some time on the essay question. Joe responded in timely manner and he always gave constructive feedback. He definitely pushed me to my limits and brought out the best of me!

The application process was quite the journey and I am so gratefully that Joe was by my side. I can confidently say that, without Joe, I wouldn’t have been able to get into my target school. The Veritas MBA consulting service was without a doubt, the best investment I’ve made and I highly recommend it to everyone!

Thank you Joe !

Consultant: Neil Chong

Neil Chong was my USC Marshall consultant through Veritas Prep's school consulting package. He did an excellent job helping me with my application, essays, interview prep, and overall questions about the program and other aspects. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking at USC Marshall!

He was very thorough with making sure my application was spot on with no issues, errors, or silly mistakes. He went through the whole application with me step by step.

He was very meticulous in grading my essays. He made sure I had explained my story and answered the essay prompts as succinctly and efficiently as possible.

He helped me with my interviews by telling me how to prepare, what kind of questions would be asked, and then conducting a mock interview and then subsequently grading me on my performance.

10/10 service from him.

Consultant: Rachel Shelton

Rachel is the BEST!! Words can’t describe the commitment and support I received from Rachel during the entire eMBA application process. Never knew there was so much detail to the application process with deadlines for each. From the first time I spoke to Rachel, I knew she had my needs and interests as a priority and was committed in helping me through the process. Rachel is extremely knowledgeable with the entire application process and has valuable insights on the requirements of various business schools. I loved her approach in getting me started with helping me write down both my short and long term professional goals with every single detail – though it was painful, I’m thankful for the exercise as it provided a clear vision and a path to my goals which helped align my applications and interviews to the vision. As a part of the process, she reviewed by resume, provided valuable feedback to showcase my strengths while still keeping it authentic to reflect my personality – best resume I have every had! With my goals and experience in mind, she made recommendations on the schools that best suit my needs, help lay-out the application submission plan with timelines, which helped greatly to reduce the stress as I now had a supportive partner and a plan that we were committed.

Her coaching style is friendly and personal, professional, detailed, supportive and transparent. She’s generous with her time, honest in her advice and extremely patient in bringing the best. When one of my essays did not address the requirements, she had me rethink the scenario and come up with a new essay that addressed the question. I applied to 2 schools and was accepted in both which would not have happened without Rachel for which I’m always grateful.

Consultant: Sophie

I always knew I would be using advisors when submitting my apps. The question was, who to pick.

I went with Veritas upon recommendation from a very close friend that got accepted into Stanford. He said by far they were the best and shortly after having my first call with them it showed.

Sophie is an AMAZING consultant and she made sure that my essays, curriculum and interview was top notch. I´m really serious when saying she was the differentiating factor between me getting accepted or denied. She has a great way of communicating, giving constructive feedback and fantastic suggestions on how to improve the application. Sophie stayed on top of the important dates and made sure I had everything ready days before the deadline and since we talked constantly I never felt overwhelmed as the due dates came closer.

I´ve heard from friends saying they had a horrible experience with another company and this NEVER happened to me. If I could do it again I would choose Veritas and Sophie all over again.

It may sound as a cliche, but ended up the whole app process with a great new friend.

Consultant: Rachel Shelton

Rachel was the lead consultant for my 3 school package. She is extremely knowledgeable and knows what each school is looking for in their ideal candidate. She makes the application process as stress free as it can be. Don't be mistaken, you have to write your own essays, she does not write them for you but her direct and insightful feedback is priceless and once your incorporate her suggestions, draft after draft, you will be amazed at the transformation your work went through.

Rachel is extremely patient and genuinely cares about your success. She does not hesitate to let you know that the work you sent her is not up to the mark. Of course it's much better coming from her than from the adcom in the form of a rejection.

I am so glad to get to work with her. The result: 2 admits from my top choices!

You cannot go wrong with Rachel on your team. Call Veritas and request to work with her!

Consultant: Dia Draper

I worked with Dia throughout my admissions process -- she was incredible. Dia helped me refine my story so that I was the most compelling version of myself when submitting applications and interviewing. I definitely did the work, but Dia was key in pointing me down the right path(s) and pushing me to do my homework. At different times she was cheerleader, coach, mentor, and speaker of hard truths.

Dia is busy (I think most consultants are) -- but she managed to stay organized and keep the details of my particular situation fresh in her head. She was always responsive and available on email, text, phone, etc. I can't recommend Dia highly enough!

Consultant: Dia Draper

The applications to MBA schools are trickery. The winners are the students who choose and get admitted to the school which suite them best and where they ought to be. I was way off when i applied my first time. Although Dia from Veriats had clearly pointed me to the right direction she stuck with my personal choices. Even when i was rejected by all, her encouragement helped me beyond words can express. Finally when i got admitted to the school which best suites my profile all her words feel like gospel now. The veritas team is the best: they are not adamant or choosy but guide all students who come to them without any regard to the time spent or resources they invest. Working with them was FANTASTIC. I can vouch that their methodology in which each school's application is scrutinized by school specific experts and all the other members examining the application is really good. They are very result oriented rather than reosurce minded.

Consultant: Sophie

I chose the 5 school package from Vertias Prep to cover all the schools that I was interested in. I was paired with Sophie as my head consultant and working with her was an absolutely wonderful experience. I had a few weak points in my application and as I was applying to the most selective MBA programs (all within the top 10), I wanted to make sure that I was putting in my best effort. It has definitely paid off! I got admitted to my dream school and will be attending this coming fall.

I believe Sophie and her guidance helped me get admitted to my top choice MBA program in three distinct ways.

1. Narrowing down the ideas and life stories into meaningful anecdotes:
I knew I wanted to apply to an MBA program in the beginning of the year and had the luxury of starting my sessions with Sophie in April. We were able to spend the first couple of months exploring ideas and wrote numerous drafts that drilled down into different facets of my life. When the essay prompts actually came out, it was only a matter of refining the tone and grounding the ideas into a relevant theme. It made a huge difference in helping me juggle all my other commitments with the stress of applying to business school.

2. Keeping me on track and sticking to a schedule:
Sophie and I had a regular weekly meeting scheduled throughout the 9 month duration. Not only was she always prompt in her feedback but also made sure to set up intermittent deadlines in order to space out the work load into manageable chunks. If it had not been for the ongoing discussions and check-ins, I would have aimlessly tweaked the essays without the confidence that they were ready for submission

3. Honest, critical feedback:
The one thing that I found with family and friends that were reading my applications is that many were not critical enough. With Sophie, we established early on that her feedback would be critical and constructive. I had a tendency to be verbose and colloquial in my writing, and that was caught and corrected. We even edited out entire passages that we had worked on for weeks as it did not ultimately fit in with the narrative. Without Sophie's decisive suggestions my essays would have suffered.

Overall, Sophie and the school package from Veritas Prep was a great choice. I honestly believe she has made the difference in my getting accepted and helped me in my path to business school.

P.S: The GMAT prep program that comes with the school package is the only GMAT help you will need. I took the online courses and a few practice tests over the course of a month and got a GMAT in the mid 700's (above the average of all my schools).
