The Process

Book Your Session

Book your review below. Once you’ve booked, we’ll email you instructions for where (and when) to send your materials. 

We Record Your Feedback

We’ll review your resume and your work within the “Career Vision” and “Why MBA?” sections of the Lab and record our feedback and suggestions for you.

Review Your Video

Within ~12 hours of your scheduled session, you’ll receive a link to review your video feedback. Because it’s a video, you can watch (and re-watch) on your own schedule.

Reminder: All of our reviews are delivered via recorded video feedback.
You only need to send us your materials in advance of your session and then we’ll take it from there – no need for you to be anywhere at any set time! (We only use “time slot” appointments to help ensure we don’t get overbooked for any given day.)

Cancellation/Reschedule Policy
Bookings are non-refundable. Sessions may be rescheduled up to 72 hours in advance (you will receive instructions on how to do so in your confirmation email).

And yes, you can only book a maximum of 60 days in advance – future availability will open up as time passes!
