I felt that their understanding of what different schools are looking for... Read More

Nicole helped me prepare for both my Tuck and Ross interviews, and her guidance was incredibly helpful. Nicole provided thorough feedback and highlighted areas where I could substitute examples, elaborate more, or practice delivering a more structured response. After prepping with Nicole, I was ultimately admitted to Tuck, Ross, Fuqua, Yale SOM, and Darden! Read More

Class of 2022
I first met Scott at his PMC booth in an MBA tour. Coming from a non-traditional background, I had very limited knowledge in business/interaction with the MBA community. Scott walked me through my resume patiently and professionally; I then decided to work with PMC. Scott may initially suggest you apply for some top programs and... Read More

If someone is trying to get into Columbia Business School then you definitely want Nicole on your team. She is so knowledgeable of how CBS works and she is also really nice and patient.

I worked with Nicole to prep specifically for my Kellogg interview, but her help and preparation served me well throughout the interview process for all four schools I applied to and was admitted to (Kellogg, Stanford, Columbia, Duke).

I honestly had no idea how to prepare for my MBA interviews. The advice MJ gave me made all the difference! From the ubiquitous “Tell me about yourself” to the more school-specific “Why do you want to live in X city” and “What would you add to Y school?,” MJ made sure that I clearly... Read More

Scott is awesome. He is a great predictor of results in my opinion. He is patient and very nice which is always important during MBA applications which can be very stressful. I used Scott’s services when I was on the waitlist for Columbia Business School. I could not have asked for a better consultant. Highly... Read More

Class of 2024
I had an excellent experience working with Scott, MJ and Nicole. From my initial phone call, Scott was direct, informed and honest. He helped me craft a target list of schools to suit my ability and background. Though he is at every step supportive, he’s unusual in that his feedback is consistently candid. He does... Read More

I worked with Personal MBA Coach for a mock Wharton TBD and it helped me immensely. It helped confirm certain behaviors that would be helpful to double down on, what I should express more and what I could do better. My 1:1 session with MJ Shores was even more helpful as she helped me trim... Read More
