Willa | Columbia Business School

I came to Scott and team with a short list of three schools I was interested in and the less common field of investment management as my post-MBA goal. He wasted no time in helping me articulate my story in a way that was authentic to me and highlights elements that were uniquely important to each of the programs I applied for. Through the multiple rounds of edits, he was able to strike a delicate balance between guiding me to elaborate and clarify where needed and still letting me tell my own story.

Scott and team are also tremendously helpful in the interview preparation process. The mock interviews gave me a taste of what the actual interviews were like and helped target my efforts in the areas that needed improvement the most.

Their experience and professionalism really shine through the entire time I worked with them. It was also reassuring to have Scott one email or one call away when I needed support.
