Find out how Personal MBA Coach helped these clients improve their MBA application strategies and ultimately achieve success!

Deeksha | Wharton, CBS & LBS

One of the key reasons I chose Scott was the fact that he individually had a great track record and that I got to directly work with him, unlike other firms who had multiple consultants and there was the ambiguity of whether I would get a good consultant to work with.

Scott has great clarity on how to approach the application for each of the schools and also offers great flexibility in the entire process. He made the entire process simple and easy to tackle, helping me apply to 6 schools in a satisfactory manner with time to spare (some other consultants I spoke with said the process is so complicated I could at max apply to 4 schools). The ability to apply to more schools reduced my risk of not getting admitted anywhere, and hence reduced the pressure on the entire process. Scott is very responsive and ensures he gets back for all communication within 2 days, even during weekends and holidays.

Scott’s clear approach uniquely tailored to each school helped me get into LBS, CBS, and Wharton. I wouldn’t have had the success I have without Scott’s guidance.

Federico | Kellogg & Booth

Working with the Personal MBA Coach team was the best decision I made. As a non-native speaker, Scott and the Personal MBA Coach team really helped me craft and refine my story throughout all the steps in the application process. The Personal MBA Coach team significantly enhanced my application storyline and was a fundamental help in preparing for interviews. In the end, I was admitted to all the schools I applied to (PT Kellogg and PT Booth), even getting a scholarship ($$) from one of them, with Personal MBA Coach’s help. I absolutely recommend working with their team. It’s a challenging and fun process, really worth the investment.

Olivia | 6 School Admit

I was by no means an easy client. My testing saga ended up taking much longer than expected, and because of this, I ended up working with Scott and the team through R1 and R2. They never complained. While other firms I initially reached out to would not provide the flexibility for me to start working with them while still working through the testing, Scott had no problem with it. He also promised that I would have direct access to him, instead of someone who worked for him, as many of the other firms had arranged.

After finally getting a strong test score under my belt, I was left with about a month to complete all of my applications. While Scott and the team typically recommend and request that the essays be near completion at this stage, they worked through each draft with me up until the final deadlines. There were countless drafts and emails exchanged between us. They answered every nitpicky question that I had in a timely fashion, even during the holidays. When it came time to interview, Scott set me up with his interviewing experts, who thoroughly prepared me for each interview.

I ended up getting into every single school that I applied to with many full rides, and am now in the position to choose between Stanford, Harvard, and Wharton. I can say with certainty that the best decision I made was to hire Personal MBA Coach.

Client Success Story

Ryan | Wharton & LBS

Working with Personal MBA Coach helped me significantly throughout the application process. The team was there with me from square one all the way to the end – from choosing schools to final interview prep. I found that the structure and timeline created by working with Personal MBA really helped ensure that I did not procrastinate and provided good prompts to overcome any writer’s block that came up.

I do not have a very typical background, and had no experience of applying to US universities, so I do not think I would have gotten in anywhere without Personal MBA Coach’s help.

I found that the structure and personalized support offered by the Personal MBA Coach team was the perfect fit for me. I was by no means a “traditional” candidate, so I needed a lot of help navigating the MBA application process. Scott and his team have a very structured process in place for all aspects of the application process including essay writing, video essays, and interviews. They checked in with me consistently to make sure I was still moving forward when I was procrastinating and provided 110% support up until the very last minute I had to submit my applications. Their interview prep was excellent since they work so closely with folks who have actually done admissions interviews.

Throughout the last 16 months, I had a number of small questions from how to talk to adcoms to switching my recommenders, and always received a fast and helpful response from Scott and his team with guidance. In the end, I received interview invites to all five schools I applied to and have been accepted so far at three, with scholarships from two! I never imagined I would be accepted anywhere, much less have options, so I’m incredibly grateful for Scott and the Personal MBA Coach team!

Jessica | 5 School Admit

The business school process can feel overwhelming at times, but Personal MBA Coach was a true partner in this process. I purchased Personal MBA Coach’s comprehensive package where I received support in terms of story development, essay feedback, and letter of recommendation guidance. Personal MBA Coach was always available to answer my questions and helped me stay on track to meet all of my application deadlines. I credit their services for helping me develop a strong and compelling application package.

I also took advantage of Personal MBA Coach for their GMAT/GRE services and found it to be extremely helpful. I studied for the GRE for several months on my own using a variety of study materials but failed to see a significant increase. I was frustrated and was unsure whether I could get into a top school.  After using Personal MBA Coach for three months, I saw a 10+ increase in my total GRE score. Personal MBA Coach tutors are smart, patient, kind, and dedicated to seeing their clients succeed. I highly recommend Personal MBA Coach GMAT/GRE services for prospective applicants that are looking for a significant score increase!

I ended up getting into all of the MBA schools I applied to with significant scholarships. I’m grateful that I chose Personal MBA Coach to help guide me through the business school journey.

JP | Stern & Haas

The people at Personal MBA Coach were a crucial asset in my MBA application process. As a civil engineer, I was worried that my professional background would hinder me during the application process, but the advisors at Personal MBA Coach helped me turn it into an asset. Personal MBA Coach helped me put together a cohesive application that told an effective story to my target programs. Scott’s candid conversations really built trust, ultimately convincing me to take GMAT tutoring sessions as well as choose Berkeley.

I would highly recommend Personal MBA Coach to any professionals interested in pursuing an MBA. I especially appreciated their flexibility with my busy work schedule and my GMAT tutoring sessions, which I believe were fundamental to my score.

Caroline | 4 School Admit

Personal MBA Coach helped me through every step of the application process – from deciding where to apply, what tutor I should be using for test prep, and even the interviews. I truly cannot imagine going into the COVID-19 application environment without Scott as a resource. He helped me craft a unique narrative and develop my essays far beyond what I could have done alone.

Don’t get me wrong – the application process was rigorous, and Scott will push you to work hard. The payoff is well worth it! I was accepted into 4 out of 6 schools with scholarships at 3. I was just hoping to get into one! I am so grateful for Scott’s expertise and cannot thank him enough for his help.

Peter | 4 School Admit

Personal MBA Coach was an incredible help. They started by learning about my background and goals. From there, we went through a personalized list of schools that they felt would be a good fit for me. Once we had the list, they helped by providing a GMAT tutor and working with me on the essays for each school. I would say the largest piece was the essays for each school! Personal MBA Coach was helpful in providing guidance and honest feedback, and I was thrilled with the results.

Personal MBA Coach was very professional and responsive. The business school application process is a lot of work and can be difficult to navigate. Personal MBA Coach helped me every step of the way and made the process much less stressful. I would highly recommend this service and could not have gotten the results without their help!
