Accepted to Ross($), Cornell, UCLA and Tepper ($). I used ApplicantLab after having a bad experience with one of the top consultants who had charged their usual hefty fee. I used ApplicantLab’s videos/essay advice, resume review, essay review, and mock interview services. Maria exceeded my expectations by responding super-quick and going the extra mile throughout the application process. I can’t speak highly enough of her, even if she were to double the price of her services!
I’m from an over-represented applicant pool (Indian, Engineering background) and wanted to ensure that my application was strong. Per other consultants, the application process could only be completed by spending 6 months to 1 year on it. I did not have the luxury of time and felt constrained by the lack of response and sluggish pace of the ‘top consultant’ that I had hired earlier. Initially I was hesitant to try ApplicantLab because of the lack of personal interaction. I eventually chose it because of the affordable price, the great reviews and the possibility that I could independently work on my application according to my timelines, not the hard-to-reach consultants’.
The essay and resume reviews, and the mock interview prep were key to my success. I knew I had made the right decision as I went through the ApplicantLab modules which provided the clarity, structure and recommendations on how to craft my essays for each school. Maria helped me narrate my stories in an impactful way and submit my applications within my target timeline of 2 months! The mock interview and the write-up following that were quite useful too. Maria was very helpful and responsive to the questions I had later as well, and provided valuable insights to help me choose the right program per my career interests.
