Preparing for business school applications is like running a marathon. You probably won’t do very well if you haven’t trained and just get up on the day of the race and decide to run. Also, there are tangible steps that you can take in advance to prepare yourself.
Similarly, business schools evaluate you on your track record, not just what you are doing at the time of application. They look at how you progressed in your job, what extra-curricular activities you participated in, and how you’re shaping up to be a future leader.
We help you define and take the concrete steps that put on a trajectory for success. You know one year before your peers what sort of leadership experiences you should be seeking out and what types of extra-curricular activities you should be participating in. You also work with a dedicated coach to define concrete tactics that you need to take to fill gaps in your profile and double down on your strengths.
There are things you should work on and then there are must-dos such as taking the GMAT and engaging the right recommenders. These things take time. Almost one in three GMAT takers have to re-take the test.
You need to plan your test-prep so that you have time to re-take the test if needed. Engaging recommenders right before you need them to write reference letters for you can lead to a sub-standard recommendation. Your dedicated coach will help you outline test-prep timelines and brainstorm tactical next steps on what type of recommenders to select and how and when to engage them.
In short, we make sure you are on top of your game and two steps ahead of your peers at all times.
Your Coach is an alum of a top business school and has several years of industry experience. They also have extensive coaching experience and have helped several candidates like you prepare for business school.
Your coach will have relevant experience in your field of interest and expertise.
We match you to a Coach based on your professional background, schools of interest, and career ambitions. This makes sure that the Coach understands ‘your language’ and you understand theirs.
If you worked on a major buyout as a private equity associate, we pair you with someone who has a finance background. If you lead a team that grew Sales Qualified Leads by 100% for a startup, we match you with someone who worked in sales or knows what it’s like to be at a startup. This helps create and execute growth plans that are tailored to your strengths and weaknesses.
A lot of the information needed to match you with the right Coach is collected through our intake form, so please be sure to fill it out thoroughly.
Your MBA is a big investment in your career. It is generally a turning point that helps you expedite your career growth and has an impact on your career trajectory for years to come. Taking this into consideration, the earlier you begin, the better it will be for your applications.
While the All-Inclusive package will help you tell the best story possible, it won’t be possible for us to go back in time and fill gaps in your profile when the application deadline is just a few months away.
Graduating from a top school adds $4M - $5M - or more - to your compensation over the course of your career. Even in the short term, an MBA can double your salary. Further, alumni of this service have historically received over $90,000 in scholarships on average from each school they were admitted to.
Given how much they spend on this service, this translates to a ~45x ROI even before they get to business school. If you take these things into perspective, your investment in this service generates outsized returns. However, you might not need this service if you are sure that you are participating in the right extra-curricular activities and don’t need help with test-prep planning and career progression.
Scholarships are only available for our All-Inclusive Service. Our mission is to help every candidate realize their true potential. When you retire, we want you to look back on your career and be proud of yourself for achieving your dreams. As such, we want to make sure that your financial circumstances are not a barrier to success.
In keeping with this mission, we provide a small number of partial and full scholarships to our candidates. They are awarded after you start working with us and are based on both professional potential and financial need.
That said, we also want to make sure you are working with the best team, and attracting top talent is expensive. Hence, we’re not able to provide scholarships to everyone. Your project team can tell you more about scholarship opportunities if you work with us on an All-Inclusive engagement upon completion of the twelve-month prep program. Alumni of the prep program receive a 10% discount for our All-Inclusive Service.
