Success Stories


Case Study - Management Consultant
  • We worked with a management consultant two years prior to her applying to business school. We coached her through an unexpected layoff, and prepared her for a job interview resulting in her securing a higher level job within weeks of being laid off. We then worked with her comprehensively throughout her business school application process, and helped her explained the layoff in a positive way that demonstrated her achievements and strong work ethics.
  • Outcome: She got into her first choice school, New York University Stern, despite having GMAT score at the low end of the range.
Case Study - Junior Engineer With A Low GPA
  • We provided comprehensive multi-school consulting service to a junior level engineer who had a 2.8 undergraduate GPA. We helped him tell his story of holding multiple jobs in college to support his parents who were both laid off from their jobs. At the same time, he volunteered as a "Big Brother" for 5 years and still mentors the same "Little Brother" today because he thought it was important to teach his little brother to stay in school. We helped him highlight his dedication and perseverance in his application.
  • Outcome: He was accepted to 4 our of the 6 schools he applied to, and decided to attend Cornell where he was selected as a Parks Fellow and received a full merit scholarship to the program.
Case Study - Trailblazer
  • A female candidate was the first in her family to graduate from college and with expectations from her parents to be married rather than going to graduate school. She had switched many jobs in a short period of time. We helped explained her drive to succeed in business, and desire for education. We felt it was important to highlight her background and her working to pay her college tuition.
  • Outcome: She was accepted to all her top schools - Wharton, Chicago, and Columbia. She has since graduated from Wharton.
Case Study - Re-applicant
  • We provided comprehensive multi-school consulting service to an engineer from MIT, who got rejected from all the business schools he applied to on his own in the prior year. We helped him demonstrate his problem solving skills with great project leadership examples from work and extracurricular activities, and emphasized soft skills.
  • Outcome: He was accepted to his top choice school at UCLA Anderson School.
Case Study - Voice-over Actress
  • We provided comprehensive multi-school consulting service to a voice-over actress from Asia and helped her highlight transferable business skills and leadership potential. She found the mock interviews extremely helpful in explaining her professional achievements and career goals.
  • Outcome: She was accepted to six of her top schools with full scholarship to USC Marshall, partial scholarship to Georgetown and Oxford, as well as partial scholarship to Cornell where she decided to attend. We also prepared her for her MBA internship interviews and as a result, she secured a coveted marketing internship with a top global pharmaceutical company.
