AdmissionsConsultants proudly announces that Douglas Braithwaite has joined the Firm as an MBA admissions consultant. After earning a Ph.D. from MIT, Doug attended Harvard Business School where he earned his MBA. He later served as Director of MBA Admissions at HBS and he made, literally, tens of thousands of accept/reject/waitlist decisions for HBS during this time. In his capacity of Director of MBA Admissions, Doug refined or reinforced existing rigorous subjective and concrete admissions procedures. Most of those procedures remain in place to this day. At one point, the classes he admitted had the lowest failure rate in the history of HBS. As part of his office, he also served on various national panels and committees.

Doug has remained actively involved with the HBS admissions office and, as part of Dean Clark's initiative, he has read applications and developed additional procedures focused on admitting stronger technical students with less 'traditional' MBA backgrounds. Before joining AdmissionsConsultants, he successfully coached scores of sponsored corporate employees with their applications to HBS and other top-tier programs. Finally, Doug is also the co-architect of the of the admissions process at MIT's Leaders for Manufacturing Program.

"We are very excited to welcome Doug as the newest consultant to our Firm and we believe his employment is a clear testament to both our reputation and integrity in our industry. We believe Doug's very unique insights into the HBS admission process will allow us to help even more clients gain admission to this very prestigious business school while simultaneously improving on our already high success rate," states David Petersam, President of AdmissionsConsultants, Inc.
