Admit: Wharton (+$$$)
Sam helped an R3 candidate get into their dream S=school, Wharton (+ $100k).
Working with Sam is a no-brainer. As a panicking R3 applicant with a below-average GMAT score and countless other imperfections in my application, I knew I needed to craft brilliant essays to have any hope of success. I found Sam with the sole purpose of getting help on one essay to help construct my narrative and get the ‘juices flowing.’ However, just a few minutes into our first meeting, I knew I wanted his help on my entire application. Sam’s clear and strategic approach, his direct feedback in real-time and his constant encouragement to dive deeper and highlight the values behind my work were instrumental in helping me get into my dream school, Wharton!
My favorite part about working with Sam was how deeply engaged he was in the brainstorming process. He spent a significant amount of time learning about me, discussing my ‘story’ and the pros and cons of positioning my experiences in different ways. He pushed me to think about my experiences, specifically to determine how they impacted me and others around me and to identify the values that had led me to choose those experiences. In addition, he helped me present my post-MBA goals in an ambitious but also clear and realistic manner that matched my journey. This upfront investment paid dividends in developing a consistent, profoundly authentic and high-quality application.
Sam helped me rework my entire application in less than a week! He also ensured to mark the dates for the interview and final decision so that he could wish me luck and check-in. One of the best things that came out of my MBA application process (other than getting into Wharton with $100k in scholarship) was getting to know Sam. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a consultant who is genuinely invested in your success!
