Why ApplicantLab?

Kickass MBA admissions experts with years of experience

ApplicantLab was designed by Maria Wich-Vila, a Harvard Business School graduate with over 15 years of admissions consulting experience.

Maria has condensed her years of expertise into a simple, easy-to-use tool that will help you put your best foot forward in your business school applications.

A team of top-tier MBA alumni is here to support you along the way.

24/7 On-demand tools so you can work on your schedule

Working long hours? Need late-night advice? An hourly consultant might not be there when you need them. But ApplicantLab will be. Our on-demand app lets you get the direction you need on your schedule. Day or night.

Business school applicants come in all flavors. And we’ve helped hundreds of them get into the top-tier MBA school of their dreams. Whatever your work experience, industry, or educational background, chances are — ApplicantLab has helped someone just like you.

Add-on consulting services to help you keep your sanity

ApplicantLab alone contains all the advice you need to make sure your business school application is top notch. But what if you want additional advice? Our suite of consulting services will help you make sure your essays, resume and overall strategy are on point.

For the same price as one hour from an hourly consultant, ApplicantLab delivers expert advice gleaned from years working in top-tier MBA admissions. We keep our prices reasonable so that everyone can access this exclusive information without breaking the bank.

Our Success Stories

We’ve helped applicants of all backgrounds get into top-tier MBA Schools.

Great turnaround story with ApplicantLab!

“I got into Tuck and some other schools this year with ApplicantLab, but my traditional consultant last year told me not to even bother applying there. She felt that I did not stand a chance at all at Tuck and actually refused to work with me on that application. This should tell you enough.

I could probably go on and on about ApplicantLab, but the best way to see if its right for you is to sign up... Buying it is a no-brainer if you want world-class admission help without the heavy price tag.” Read the full review on GMAT Club

Can't recommend enough!

“Coming from a background where MBAs are rarer, I went into the whole MBA process pretty blind, and I am certain I wouldn't have been able to put my best foot forward without the essay, resume, and interview tips that Maria laid out. 

ApplicantLab was intuitive, easy to navigate, and provided the key info that I needed in a tailored format for each school - amazing!” Read the full review on GMAT Club

Silver Bullet for Admissions

“Working 60+ hour weeks, two non-profits, and a side business, I needed admissions help that could operate with my schedule but still quench my thirst for details and specifics.

ApplicantLab was the perfect solution for me.

It contains amazingly detailed videos of not only what to do, but why you do it, which is really the secret sauce of admissions! The online tool walked me through the entire process of building up my MBA profile, and made sure that I thought through all of the important introspective questions that are necessary at putting together solid essays.

Ultimately, I got into my top choice!” Read the full review on GMAT Club

Even 10x as expensive, it would still be great value for money

“ApplicantLab is an amazing tool to make sure you tick all the boxes of your application.

The amount of material and guidance is pretty breathtaking considering the reasonable price tag.
As a note of caution; ApplicantLab does not do the work for you. To fully utilize the potential AL offers, you do have to put in quite some time, however, the investment will certainly be worth it.” Read the full review on GMAT Club

Maria saved my reapplying a$%

“The thing with big consulting firms is that it can always be a hit or a miss. You might get an incredible consultant who really likes your story and wants to help you more strategically, or, like mine, your experience could be vanilla… Anyway, I was not super happy and was looking for a better experience.

[ApplicantLab] saved my 2016-all-dings-butt this year… Could I be more resounding in narrating my experience with ApplicantLab? Probably not. But it is worth the praise it receives.” Read the full review on GMAT Club

Helped me achieve my Dream

“I got awestruck when I saw Maria's advice on how to build a resume for MBA school…all the qualities of a bad resume were there in my old resume… [it] made me realize that some of the "big" consultant companies are using their big names to get the business but are hiring low quality consultants to provide services. 

I ended up spending less than what I spent last year [on a traditional consultant] and got admitted to 3 schools with huge $$$s.” Read the full review on GMAT Club
