“I don’t know what I would have done without Karen. From initial soul-searching to application composition to ultimate decision-making, she was an unbelievable and necessary resource. When I began this application process, I was flying blind; I had no idea what MBA programs expected of me when it came to application materials (whether my GRE score was strong enough, what essay topics were appropriate, how to structure my resume effectively, etc.). Karen gave me a nuts and bolts understanding of what I needed to say and how I needed to say it each step of the way — not by dictating content for me, but by helping me put my best self forward, in my unique tone of voice. Karen was also readily responsive throughout the application process, taking calls and responding to my emails at generous speed, which was helpful during anxiety-ridden months. At the end of the day, I was admitted to four of the six schools I applied to, and waitlisted at one of them. I received generous scholarship packages at three of the four schools to which I was admitted. Karen helped me negotiate for one of these packages. I have now happily committed to attending what was, from the start, one of my top choices.”
