Chicago Booth ’28

Scott knows the MBA admission world. I was working on a time crunch, as I decided to apply to deferred MBA programs fairly last minute, but Scott was patient and very helpful regardless. His best trait is knowing when to say no and being straightforward. I like that he would never hesitate to tell me when something I wrote is not adding value and will provide suggestions to other ways to approach the essay.
