I thought applying to business school just meant writing a few decent essays and scoring well on the GMAT. Then I met Shawn (Stratus Prep’s Founder) who explained how competitive the process was and how I could differentiate myself even if I didn’t have the top numbers. Luckily, I listened. I never would have gotten into Harvard Business School with a GMAT in the 500’s if it weren’t for Stratus Prep.
I applied to three schools, and the applications and essays for each school were completely different. My Stratus Prep admissions counselor helped me strategize a unique approach for each school and kept me on track throughout this grueling process. With Stratus Prep’s help, I will be enrolling at Wharton, my top choice, this fall.
With the help of my Stratus Prep Admissions Counselor, I not only got into Columbia Business School; I won a full-merit scholarship. That is $150,000+ I can now put towards an apartment. Thanks Stratus Prep!
Stratus Prep admissions counselors go out of their way to make the admissions process run smoothly and efficiently. At my first meeting we set up a schedule that included every draft of every essay, each recommendation, etc. We stuck to the schedule and I submitted all my apps well before the deadlines! Now I have merit-based scholarships at a number of my top choice schools.
With a demanding job in finance, I did not have a lot of flexibility in my schedule. My admissions counselor was so accommodating in meeting whenever I could (even some Sunday nights) and replying immediately to my emails I sent in the middle of the night! Every meeting was very productive, and I always left feeling encouraged. In the end, my application could not have been better, and I was accepted to HBS, my top choice school!
When I applied to business school in the fall, I applied to HBS as a long shot. In order to give it my best possible effort, I went to Stratus Prep for advice. My Stratus Prep offered invaluable feedback on my essays that made a tremendous improvement and helped me prep for the infamously intimidating Harvard interview. The proof is in the pudding: I will be attending HBS next fall. I can't recommend you highly enough.
