Columbia Business School ’25

After talking with many different consultants, I decided to go with Scott and Personal MBA Coach because I felt he and the team gave me the best chance of achieving my goal to get into an M7 school despite coming from an extremely competitive demographic. Scott can be direct, but his advice and tough love are needed to take the right steps throughout the application process. Scott was clear and concise with how I could communicate my story and helped bring out the pertinent parts of my life to best develop each application. He and his team had an excellent turnaround time (1-2 days, even less most times!) on any questions, edits, or concerns that I had during my experience. Highly recommend!
