"David,

I am writing to thank you for setting me up with Todd. He was a phenomenal resource that was instrumental through every step of my MBA application process. Thanks to him, I was accepted to all the schools I applied to, including HBS, Wharton, and MIT Sloan. Never in my wildest dreams did I think I would have all of these choices for schools.

Thanks again and I look forward to referring all future MBA applicants I know to Admissions Consultants and Todd.

Best Regards,"  J, Canada


"Cindy,

I am excited to report that I have been accepted into the HBS class of 2012. Thanks so much again for all of your help with the interview preparation. It made all the difference.

Best wishes for a happy and healthy holiday season."  L, New York


"Susan,

In at Columbia! Couldn't have made it without your help! Thanks!"  W, New York


"Thanks Chris! I appreciate it!

Of course all of this could not have happened [acceptances to Chicago, Kellogg, Cornell and Duke] without Todd's help and guidance. His suggestions were exceptional. He truly helped me put my best foot forward.

Regards,"  G, Oregon


"Mark,

I just found out that I got accepted to Harvard! Thank you so much for your help with all of this. I couldn't have done it without you."  D, Illinois


"Hi Chris,

I loved working with Jeff. The interview itself was fine, but what I was most impressed with was the review session after. He was very direct about what I did well and what I didn't do well and what ways I could improve the story I was trying to tell. He was insightful and I felt like he was truly interested in advising me into making the best impression I could for my interview. Overall, a really productive session. I was extremely pleased."  C, Maryland


"Hi Nicole

Thanks for all the help, especially at times when you went out of your way to help me in the last day. I thoroughly enjoyed working with you and your inputs were insightful and concise. I couldn't have made it to Duke Fuqua School of Business without your support. Thanks again"  R, India


"Hi Susan,

I got accepted to NYU Stern! Thank you so much for your help. I would have never reached this without your support and help!

Also, I received an interview invitation from Georgetown, which I am now considering to decline.

Thanks again!"  Z, New York


"Matt – Just a follow up to our conversation today. Cindy was very very good! Great insights and $200 VERY well spent. I'm glad I enlisted your services. Please pass this along to her superiors."  P, Colorado


"Susan,

I wanted to let you know that I have been invited to interview at Columbia and Wharton. Once again, thank you so much for your help, you definitely helped me get here! I´ll let you know how they go.

Best,"  F, Mexico


"I can't say enough good things about your company. You are honest, professional and very good at getting acceptances for your clients. I just wish I had used AdmissionsConsultants my first time through the process. It was an expensive lesson, but it is one that has now been learned. Don't fall for marketing hype and if someone wants to give you a free consultation, then perhaps they are not who you want to work with."  P, New York


:"So, it's been awhile since we last spoke, and I wanted to let you know where I stand with b-schools.

1. Accepted to KFBS with the Tiger Fellowship (just found out!) and an invitation to compete for the Falls Prize ($25,000 over two years).
2. Accepted to Duke with $47,700 over two years. I actually decline this offer yesterday, which is too bad since they won the national championship :).
3. Rejected by Kellogg. I knew the interview didn't go so well.
4. Last but not least, I GOT ACCEPTED TO STERN TODAY!! I'm so thrilled with this one because I've wanted to go to NYU for grad school in some form or fashion for as long as I can remember. I actually interviewed last Wednesday morning and thought it went okay, but was still so nervous when I received the email! And I just got off the phone with the guy that interviewed me; how nice of him to call and congratulate me!

Anyway, I have no idea what I'm going to do, but I'm too excited to think about that now. Thanks again for all of your help. I honestly could not have done it without you!! Perhaps if I'm in NY this summer (or for school!), we can get celebratory drinks?

Best,"  C, Virginia


"Thank you Matt,

As I said – this might not have happened [accepted to Berkeley Haas] without your expert and professional guidance!

Thanks again!"  P, California


"Chris – thank you so much for your email. It was fantastic to work with Mennette and she was an absolutely integral part of the process. Thanks again,"  O, Australia


"Hey Jeff,

Just wanted to thank you properly for helping me with the process. Your advice was extremely helpful and gave me a peace of mind through this generally stressful process. Put me down as a satisfied customer!

Best,"  R, Pennsylvania


"Hi Nicole,

Thanks so much for your help! I am extremely excited about my acceptances and your help was very instrumental in helping me achieve them. I am leaning towards going to Chicago Booth, but it will certainly be tough to leave NYC, a city I've grown to love, even if it is only for a couple of years. I will let you know once I make my final decision. I hope all is well with you and your family. Thanks again!"  S, New York


"Hi Todd,

I just arrived in Costa Rica for my vacation. Upon logging online, I found that I have been admitted to Wharton! Needless to say, I am speechless.

Thank you for all the help, advice, and friendly kicks to the rear through the admissions process. I'll follow up with you when we return. Hope all is very well.

Regards,"  D, Texas


"Dear Mr.Braithwaite:

I hope all is well and my email finds you in good health.

I just wanted to thank you once again for all your guidance in my application process. Your dedication to your work is incredible. You are doing a great service by helping applicants understand our strengths and weaknesses while helping us analyze if and why B school is right for us. You facilitate our ability to best capture our overall candidacy when applying. What I valued most is your honesty and realistic advice. I was very fortunate to be able to work with you. Also, I wanted to let you know that this past Friday, I got notice that I have been accepted into Wharton.

Thanks again for everything. Warm Regards,"  A, India


"Hi Ed,

I have accepted the admission offer from Chicago Booth today. So my MBA application is complete now. I know I can not get the offer without your help over the last six months. I really want to thank you for everything you did especially the timely response on my essays. Please let me know if you need me to fill out any form to officially sign off the project.

Thanks again and best regards,"  S, Connecticut


"Hi Todd,

Hope this e-mail finds you well. Just wanted to give you a quick update…got accepted at Wharton today. Got HBS left on April 6th (and Columbia which I interviewed for a couple weeks ago as well).

Thanks again for all your help with the applications. Really look forward to figuring out where to go in the fall.

Best Regards,"  L, Canada


"Doug,

I am so happy I've been admitted to Harvard!!! Your help with the application and interview is the reason I got in. I can't thank you enough!"  B, New York


"Dear Cristina,

I have been accepted into LBS!

I wanted to thank you again for everything! I'm really excited to start. I think this program is the best option for me at this point in time.

Thanks again,"  S, Saudi Arabia


"Hi Kim,

Working with Ed has been great. He has been really helpful. I went through the app process on my own last year (with poor results), so I have that experience for comparison. Ed has saved me a lot of time and has enabled improvements to my essays that I would not have been able to make without his help (no matter how much time I had). I have only positive things to say about him and his contribution to date.

I hope in the spring I am writing to thank you for the great results I have achieved with your help!

Cheers,"  G, Pennsylvania


"Mennette,

Attached is my file for HBS. My previous and current supervisors have submitted recommendation, but my current President hasn't. I'm catching him and hope to have everything done and submitted early tomorrow morning.

As I'm reaching the submission of my first application, I want to say a big THANK YOU to you. Without your help, I couldn't have done my package in such a quality.

Regards,"  G, China


"Hi Kim,

Thanks for checking in.

Things are going swimmingly well with Doug and Cindy! Cindy is extremely responsive and Doug is extremely insightful. Both have pushed me to show my best self through the essays.

We're just finishing up Wharton and HBS and will be on to Columbia soon. I hope I will have the opportunity to work with them through the interview process as well!

Best,"  E, Pennsylvania


"Hi Ed,

I have accepted the admission offer from Chicago Booth today. So my MBA application is complete now. I know I can not get the offer without your help over the last six months. I really want to thank you for everything you did especially the timely response on my essays. Please let me know if you need me to fill out any form to officially sign off the project.

Thanks again and best regards,"  S, Connecticut


"Hi Kim,

I submitted my Chicago app and went through a real interview – awaiting for the Chicago decision sometime within the next few days. Cindy's interview was very helpful – it pointed out some of my weaknesses and allowed me to work on them. The real interviewer praised both my resume and my school knowledge, so lets hope for the best.

Thank you,"  K, New York


"Hi Doug,

After positive news from Wharton last week, Stanford yesterday, and HBS today, I am somewhat speechless right nowow. I cannot thank you enough for sharing with me all of your experience, wisdom, guidance, and help. I am sure I will be asking you for more of it as I try to decide between these wonderful schools.

Thank you so much."  B, Georgia


"Doug,

I hope you're well. I just wanted to shoot you a quick email to let you know that I've been offered interviews at Wharton and Stanford, so I'm pretty excited. No word from Harvard yet. But at least my success at Stanford and Wharton warrants a big thank you to you.

I imagine you're pretty busy these days - but would love to hear from you sometime.

Take care," S, New York


"Hi Cindy,

Hope you are doing great. I have been accepted at Kelley.....classes start January.... Thank you for all your help."  A, Indiana


"Hi Matt,

I reviewed the changes. It’s good. Thanks a lot for your help. You have been very patient to help me with numerous edits."  V, California


"David,

Hope you are doing well. I wanted to thank you for setting up such a great company, which provides such invaluable service. Thanks to Doug I have been able to secure a spot at HBS and Wharton for the fall.

Best,"  G, Canada


"Dear Susan,

it's been a little bit since you have heard from me, but I was waiting on the LBS decision on my waitlist. We did it! I have been offered a place! Thanks again for your help without which I could not have reached this goal."  J, Romania


"Todd's insight into the application process was invaluable as I applied this year for business school after having been rejected the previous year. He responded to my emails promptly and provided insightful and constructive criticism which helped me better understand the essay questions and present my work experience more persuasively. Because of Todd's guidance, despite my non-traditional background (nonprofit) I have been accepted to my first choice school - a top school in the UK -- and was wait-listed at 2 other Ivy league MBA programs. I did not receive any rejections despite the competition this year. "  H, China


"Hey Matt,

Thought I'd let you know that I got off the waitlist and got accepted at Wharton! Thanks so much for your help with the essays. You were great!

Rest assured if you're still doing this, we will be sending our kids' essays your way as well :)"  J, Oregon


"Hi Todd,

I had an interview with Tuck, Darden, Wharton and Booth.
Thank you very much. Your help was inestimable.

Best regards,"  M, North Carolina


"Cindy,

I'm officially in at Booth! I really appreciate everything you have done for me during this process. Your help both in crafting my essays and strategizing my application was indispensable. But perhaps more important was the peace of mind your advice provided.

Its been a long road, and I really appreciate everything you did to make it smoother.

Thanks again."  M, Oregon


"Hi Mennette,

I began hearing back from schools this past week. Chicago called today and offered a merit scholarship. I am also in at UNC with a full tuition scholarship.

Thank you so much for all of your help. I was a little unsure about applying to a top 5 school but, with your help I was able to put together a solid application.

Thanks,"  P, New York


"Hi Doug!

Just wanted to let you know that I got accepted to Kellogg and Wharton!!! I'm still in shock! I'm so happy!

Thank you so much for all your help! It really paid off and I really appreciate it! I plan to attend Wharton and classes start. Can't wait!

Well, thanks again and please keep in touch.

Take care,"  S, New Jersey


"Hey Matt,

How's it going? So here's my final status:
Michigan - Accepted!!
Kellogg - Accepted!!

Anyway, thanks again for your superb help, I definitely could not have gotten this far without your help. I will strongly recommend this company to all upcoming applicants as I know it put me over the edge.

Thanks again,"  P, Tennessee


"Hi Cindy,

How are you? Good news! I got admitted to NYU Stern! Yayyy :-). Couldn't have done it without you, so thank you very much!"  T, Washington


"Mennette,

I just received a call from Chicago with a thumbs up!
I would not have even applied to Chicago without your input – thank you for that."  B, Florida


"Hi Maria,

Thanks to Todd's help, I got accepted into Tepper, Ross, Kelly, and UNC.

He took the time to get to know me well, and had a deep knowledge of the top programs. He helped me pick my schools, and kept me on track with the essays. Not only did he help me make my essays as tight as possible, but he also helped me realize how to best present my accomplishments.

Thanks to him, I now have a tough choice ahead of me! I highly recommend him to anyone considering top business schools."  S, Illinois


"Hey Susan,

Just got admitted to Cornell. Can't thank you enough! If I'm in NYC, I would definitely like to meet you in person.

Thanks,"  L, Canada


"Hi Cristina,

I am a R3 admitted at LBS :)

Thanks a lot."  W, Finland


"Hi Nicole,

I just attended my last class at Cornell today so I thought it fitting to update you on my situation. Cornell was really the right choice for me. I think that is the real service you provided.

Thanks again."  T, New York


"Hi Chris,

Thanks again for all your help. I am very excited about Tuck (just visited for Admitted Students weekend a few weeks ago). I have a few friends who are considering applying next year. I will certainly pass your name along if you don't mind.

Thanks again."  S, Florida


"Hello Cristina,

How are you doing? I am dong well, and indeed, I finally finished my MBA at LBS. It was a truly great experience, and I sincerely thank you for your professional/high quality advice which enabled me to pursuit this opportunity!

Please stay in touch, and hope everything is going well in your life."  N, Germany


"Hi Mennette,

I got accepted to UCLA, and am interviewing with Haas next week. Thanks for your help with both UCLA and Haas!"  S, California


"Hey Mindy, I wanted to update you on the latest from my side. I am joining Kellogg this Fall.

It's the culmination of a long journey (and the start of another one) and I would never have had such a successful ending without all your help and support. Ended up getting a scholarship at Kellogg also... icing on the cake! Feels good to have gotten into all these top schools (Kellogg, Sloan, Haas and Ross).

Thanks again for all the wonderful advice and for being there at all times, both for me and my recommenders (which was equally important)."  J, Connecticut


"Hi Cristina,

I have been admitted to INSEAD. Thanks for your help with my application.

Best Regards,"  A, United Arab Emirates


"Susan,

Thanks so much for all of your help throughout the application process. I really appreciated your honest feedback and found the constructive criticism to be incredibly helpful. I got into both NYU and Columbia and couldn't be more excited.

Thanks again!"  J, Virginia


"Hi Maria,

Working with the Doug definitely helped me get into a top school. He helped me focus my essays and then reviewed them to see if they would stand out on an admissions officer's desk. I would highly recommend this service to friends!"  L, Massachusetts


"Maria,

I'm super excited and truly cannot imagine that I would have succeeded in getting accepted without AdmissionsConsultants. I will DEFINITELY refer any one I know who is embarking upon this process! I really felt like I was matched up with a great consultant. Mennette was amazing!

Thanks so much for all your help and best wishes!"  A, Vermont


"Hi Todd,

It worked, I got the offer! Thanks for your help. I'm so excited!!!!"  R, Canada


"Maria,

Thanks for your follow-up. The conversation with Jeff was great!

This service has been a great help for me. I have actually recommended your services to 3 of my friends since my last conversation with Jeff."  T, Nevada


"Hi Todd,

Thank you. Honestly, I don't think I'd have made it without your help. I have decided to go to IE for the upcoming session."  S, Massachusetts


"Hello Maria,

I would like to tell you that I have an admit from Emory. I'm really glad I had a mock interview with Cindy. All her advice helped a great deal. Thank you so much!!

Regards,"  L, Michigan


"Hi Cristina,

I have a good news to share. Oxford invited me for an interview. Thanks for helping me with the application.

Best,"  C, Virginia


"Dear Mark,

Thank you so much for invaluable help on my essays and other application components. I am also grateful for your flexibility in working with me, reviewing my documents, your thoughtfulness, and your timeliness. There was not much time, but your responses and comments were both quick and extensive.

I was extended an interview invitation. I will keep you updated. Thanks again,"  C, Vermont


"Dear Cristina,

They've already accepted me at IESE!! I went to Barcelona for my interview. I also saw the campus and sat in on a class. I'm very happy with the admission. The purpose of my e-mail is to thank you for your advice and consultations and ask you for some insight regarding this acceptance."  M, Kansas


"Hi Todd,

I appreciate your help during the whole process. I would never get the result without you!"  J, California


"My consultant, Susan was truly outstanding. She definitely took the time to know me as a person and then provided good insights about the whole admission process. Especially with so much information, I would say "misinformation", that you can come across on the admission circuit and the internet, I would say that having Susan help me sort through it which was instrumental in getting acceptance in a top MBA program. "  L, Washington


"Hi Cristina,

Just got the notice from HEC, I am accepted!!! It's so exciting to think that I'll be studying in Paris next year. I just want to say Thank You for all your help thus far. Your support is truly deeply appreciated.

Thanks,"  P, New Hampshire


"Hi Doug,

Thank so much for your advice. You have been an amazing help in this process and I cannot thank you enough. I really appreciate your candor on the JD/MBA. Thank you again.

Best,"  R, South Carolina


"Hi Meg,

I wanted to let you know that I was accepted to Duke, with a scholarship, which makes me very happy. Once more, thank you for your help.

Best regards,"  L, Connecticut

Things are going great! Mennette is exactly what I'm looking for in an advisor and I couldn't be happier with the feedback she's given and the rapport we've developed.

Thanks again,"  C, New York

Thank you for your help a few weeks ago.
I wanted to update you and let you know I had my UT Austin and Chicago interviews, and, with your help, they were dramatically better.

Thanks again,"  M, Virginia

Erica and I had a great discussion this morning. She provided me with a good and honest review of my candidacy and gave me very useful tips to improve my chances of admission.

Thanks,"  J, California
