Hear From Inspira Alumni

“After I got rejected from my top schools in R1, I spoke with Arush at Inspira to learn why my application was lacking. He went in-depth with me on all aspects of my application and focused on tactical advice that I could implement in time for future applications. No fluffy motivational BS! I took his advice for the next application cycle, and made it into Ross this year!”

“Learning from mistakes and not repeating them is the fastest way to grow. Inspira helped me identify those weak areas of my application and also advised me on how to make it stronger. Botong was such a nice person to work with, and was constantly reminding me of my strengths and areas where I needed to build new skills. I am so ready to go this time with the new approach.”

“I initially went into my call with Inspira thinking it would just be a quick review of my application to assess why I was rejected by my target schools. By the end of the call, we had created a short-term career roadmap that covered everything from how to approach projects at my firm to getting involved with social causes and how to change my application for next year. I followed through on their advice, and got into Tuck this time around!”

“I was referred to Inspira by my friend who had worked with them for his application to INSEAD. I had applied to INSEAD as well, but was rejected - which I was surprised by because I thought my 750 GMAT and 3.8 GPA made me a competitive applicant. The ding analysis helped me clearly understand that my personal story is way more important than scores. The advice I got on how I could have focused on the ‘Why’ behind my decisions was crucial, and when I had the chance to implement that advice I got into INSEAD. This fall I will be joining my buddy in Fontainebleau!”

“Over the last 6 months I have worked so hard to build a solid profile for Wharton - and I finally got in! Inspira was so helpful throughout this journey, from Arush’s ding analysis last year to the final review package this year. When I read my application from last year I can’t believe what I wrote because it was just so bland. Arush’s ding review provided me a clear path towards making a more competitive application and was full of encouragement of new things to try before applying again. I would highly recommend this service to anyone who wants a second chance at their dream school!”

FAQ's

Do I need this service?

Each year, a vast majority of the applicants who apply to business school get dinged. Most of them re-apply next year or apply to additional schools in subsequent rounds. But did you know, the re-applicant acceptance rate is lower than the overall acceptance rate at almost every top institution?

Getting dinged raises the bar you have to meet to get accepted. If you are re-applying, you need a very compelling narrative for why you should be selected. Not only do you need to re-write your essays and craft a narrative that uses the same experiences as before, but you also need to answer a question about what has changed since you last applied. It’s a delicate dance.

If you dream of going to a top business school and don’t want to make the same (or different) mistakes, this service is for you. We help you surface critical gaps and give you ideas on ways to fill them.

Who analyzes my application?

Your application is reviewed by our superstar team of Graduate Coaches, writing experts, and former Admissions Committee members. The process starts off with an assessment of your overall story and leadership experiences.

Next, our team reviews your application's grammar, sentence structure, and tone. This includes an analysis of how easy it is to read your essays and short answers. The best-written documents are usually written in simple English. Overly literary or academic text never works well.

Finally, our team reviews your entire application including test scores, undergraduate transcripts, essays, resume, and reference letters (if available) to provide holistic feedback on what you can improve before reapplying.

I made it to the interview and got dinged. Will this service still be helpful?

Yes! Even after your interview, the final decision is made based on your entire application, not just the interview. There is a possibility that you aced your interview but in conjunction with other parts of your application, there was still something lacking.

What has success been like for applicants who’ve used this service in the past?

Applicants who use this service often go on to work with us through our All-Inclusive Service. They are 5.5x more likely to get accepted at a top 10 school. Several go on to attend Harvard Business School, Stanford GSB, or Wharton, among other top schools.
