“I must say that Applicant Lab was the most value-for-money item in my entire MBA application expense list. Maria’s inputs and ideas often were the starting point for all my school essays. For the two [new] additional questions posed by Booth after the interview invite, the ApplicantLab team was quick to update the portal with their thoughts.

Overall, I highly highly recommend this tool to everyone, even those working with consultants on full packages. The additional perspective, tips & guidance is worth much more than the cost.”

“I know [acceptance] wouldn’t have been possible without the help of ApplicantLab’s step-by-step (like incredibly granular) instructions on how to structure my ENTIRE application.

Maria gives solid guidance on whichever path you decide to take with your applications. She provides great feedback on each of the pics for the Booth main essay [which was the essay in a previous year], as well.”
