Services: Pre-Application Strategy

Profile Preparation Coaching

As you approach your business school applications and prepare for this incredibly important step in your life, having a long-term plan in mind and benchmarks to achieve is crucial. We can help you navigate this stage of the admissions process so that when the time comes to differentiate yourself, you will have a host of professional, community, and personal achievements to draw on.

Designed for applicants who are six to 24 months away from applying, this service offers comprehensive, ongoing coaching with one of our Senior Consultants.

  • We start with a comprehensive profile assessment, during which your consultant will help you determine your strengths and, more importantly, your weaknesses, outlining concrete steps you can take to mitigate any shortcomings by the time you apply.¹
  • Once every few months (or more frequently, if you need additional support), you will repeat this assessment process. Together, you and your consultant will review whether you are meeting milestones and are still on track for a successful application.²
  • Your consultant can also help you make important life and career decisions, assessing how each decision may affect your overall application profile. For example, if you are choosing between projects at work, your consultant can assist you in analyzing the impact of each option on your candidacy.
  • By planning ahead, you will maximize your chances of MBA admissions success.

Can be spread over two admissions seasons.
Additional hours must be purchased in two-hour increments.
Clients receive the Long-Term Planning Guide and a Brainstorming Document.
Clients who sign up for a 3+ school package after using this service will receive $350 off the package price if they work with a Senior Consultant or $500 off if they work with a Managing Director.

¹This would consist of a 30-minute overview discussion, after which the client would complete the Brainstorming Document and then meet with the consultant for an hour to review and identify weaknesses.
²These would be 45- to 60-minute calls, occurring once or twice during the package duration.
