How are you doing? Hope you enjoyed the holidays.
Just in the last several days I got word from Kellogg and Wharton and I've been
accepted to both!!! I can't thank you enough for your help!" B,
I checked the status today and I'm IN at Wharton!! I hope we can talk sometime."
I was offered admission to the Executive MBA program (Fall 2006) at the
Stephen M. Ross School of Business, University of Michigan. I am planning to accept the offer. Thanks for the valuable suggestions and help during the application process." S, California
Yeah, at this point its probably down to just
and Wharton, and btw, when the Admissions person called, she said that I
was a unanimous choice and that they really loved reading the essays and said
they were extremely interesting and unique, so just wanted to pass along that
compliment as I owe a lot of that to you."
Hope you are enjoying the holidays. I got accepted at
Wharton last week, so I
guess you were right about me having a strong application. Thanks."
I would like to buy you a victory lunch after the New Year!"
Wanted to share with you some good news - had heard earlier this month that I
got into Oxford and just heard good news from
IESE as well!!
Hope you are enjoying the holiday season!!"
Looks like I got into
Kellogg! Yay! I got a call last night at work. Their MMM
[Master of Management and Manufacturing program] is really ideal for me, so I'm
pretty sure I'll be attending. Just need to get ready for the cold... :)
Duke offered me a [approximately $20,000] merit fellowship. I'll
continue to update you when I hear back from these schools, but thanks again for
all your help!!" V, Arizona
"Hello Kent -
I am in at
Goizueta! The lady who I interviewed with, left me a very long
message, mentioning about my acceptance and also a $5000/semester scholarship.
Thank you so much! I know I couldn't have done this without your help!
Thanks again and I hope I get more admits... into my top choice programs!!!"
"Cindy Cindy Cindy,
I just got an email from Duke to check my status online and guess what.......I
Oh....I am soo excited, as now I know that I am going to a business school next
year. Let's wait for my Top three choice results (Kellogg, Chicago and
I have to say this, the credit for my admission goes to you. From helping me
properly clarify my goals, to making my essays sound elegant to
everything.......u'rr help was just greeeeeaaattttttt. I couldn't have done this
without your help......U R AWESOME."
"Susan, I am in
Still waiting for the rest…"
I just got accepted at
Wharton! Just wanted to quick send you the great
news." B, Virginia
What a WEEK!!!!!! Just got the call from
Kellogg...they said it was a
unanimous decision! 100% acceptance....four out of four...and at least one full
ride! You've sure gotten my endorsement!"
This is [name of client] checking in. I am currently working with Doug
Braithwaite and just wanted to let you know that he has done a terrific job in
turning around my application. If I do not get in at HBS it will certainly not
be for lack of effort on his side or mine. I am only glad that I got a chance to
work with Doug.
Thanks." G, New York
I want to let you know that I just received a phone call from
Admissions. I have received an offer from them. They told me they will make a
scholarship decision by Jan. 31st.
Kent, thank you so much. I appreciate all the correspondence and advice that you
have given me...
I might actually receive several other offers, at least I hope. When I
interviewed with Emory, the admissions officer told me then and there that they
want me to attend Goizueta....
Thanks again." W, Virginia
"Using your services was like getting insider help from the grader who developed
the test curve. Nothing else could have been more effective for my
applications!" E, Illinois
I just wanted to let you know I got accepted to
Duke today. Thanks again
for all your help."
Just wanted to let you know that I got into
Fuqua! I just got the email today.
Thanks again for all your help! I'll let you know the outcome of the other
applications when I hear back, but it definitely feels good to know I got in
Just got notified that I'm in
Duke!!! 3 out of 3 so far! Will
hear about any school $ next week. Just pumped to be in, though! Thanks again!"
Thanks for taking the time for the mock interview. I have been working on your
feedback and growing more confident by the day. I will keep you posted on my
progress in the application process."
First off, I want to thank you for setting me up with Mark for my first mock
interview. Mark is a sensational guy and I had a lot of fun talking with him.
Secondly, I want to announce the great news that I got an interview invite from
HBS! I would like to set up my second MOCK INTERVIEW asap....
Thanks so much for everything. You folks are awesome! I'm brimming with great
things to write in my customer feedback and I hope to include an HBS acceptance
in my comments!" B, Michigan
"I feel so grateful I "discovered" you guys. I will definitely
recommend you, but I want to keep you guys as my own "secret weapon"
until I've been admitted."
B, New York
The Wharton guy [Drew] was fantastic, very professional, gave me a strong
critique, and was well worth the 4 hours of driving."
I cannot believe it!!! I got an interview at Harvard Business School, which I
think gives me roughly 60/40 odds to get in. The $ I spent on working with Doug
has honestly been the best money I've ever spent, at least that I can remember.
I hired Sandy, the Businessweek guy, also, and he was helpful in his own way,
but also fairly destructive. Doug was my confidence builder, my coach, and my
baseline motivator rolled into one. Even if I don't get in, the process has been
so introspective and thorough that I will walk away happy I went through it.
Anyhow, the interview is coming up soon, and I would like to setup a couple mock
interviews. Will talk to Doug and or you about it tomorrow. Thanks again." A, California
I just want to thank you for arranging the mock interviews for me. I thought
that both Susan and Mark were very good. They gave me some very good advice and
ideas that I am sure will prove to be very useful for the real interviews I
shall have." M, United Kingdom
Just wanted to thank you for your consulting earlier this year. So far, all is
going well - I have interviews scheduled at Carnegie Mellon, Wharton and
Chicago, so I'm very excited!
Your advice, it appears, was really on the money - and especially came in handy
with my recommenders.
Thanks again, Cindy!"
B, New York
Thanks so much for all the help. You were extremely
helpful in not only reading through all my applications, but also in talking
through the random issues that came up throughout the process."
"Thank you, David!
I just had an interview with Nicole and she
was great! I now feel more equipped for the upcoming alumna interview."
S, North Carolina
I got into
Stern as well! Two for two, thanks for your
E, New York
Guess what? I am admitted both to
Kellogg, my top choices. If I am
in a position today where business schools have to sell themselves to me so
that I choose them, it is because of you. I don't have enough words to thank
you. Your patience in spite of the infinite number of times that I sent my
essays to you for reviewing throughout the process was commendable. I truly
owe you my success.
Hats off to you!!"
Wanted to share my good news with you -
was accepted to HBS today! Harvard, as you know from our early
conversations, was by far my first choice in school. Thank you again for all of
your help." J, New York
Very good news. I was accepted to
both Harvard and
Wharton! I interviewed for Stanford as well. I couldn't have
done it without your guidance, so thank you very much."
"Hi Matt -
I JUST FOUND OUT TODAY THAT I GOT
INTO KELLOGG!! : ) Thank you SO much for all your help. I couldn't have
done it without you."
I wanted to tell you that I had my
first session with Tanya and she has been a pleasure. I am excited about the
process and want to find out what steps are necessary to payment of the 7 school
package deal." G, New York
"Mark, I got a call from
Stanford last night with
the admit news. 2 for 2!"
I got accepted by
Wharton. Thank you for all your help!"
It's taken me a few days to write to you, but I wanted to let you know that
last week I also got in at Wharton! Now, I'm excited to know I get to choose
between three great schools (Kellogg, Chicago, Wharton). Also, last week
Chicago called me and offered me a 20K scholarship for the first year! The
decision is getting tough, but I am slightly leaning towards Wharton.
However, the money is tempting, and I am still not sure that I want to do the
Healthcare Management Major at Wharton.
Anyway, just wanted to let you know the good news and thank
you for all your help. It's good to see that all that work led to the
great situation I'm in right now."
How are you? Many thanks to you,
Langone accepted my application! I will
be starting next February. I appreciate your guidance throughout the
process. Now I'll just have to choose the right classes for the first
semester..." Y, New York
Got a call from the Admissions Director of
Darden. They have offered me admission.
Thanks a lot for all your help."
I am an Admissions Consultants customer. Kent Harrill assisted me in my
application process. Mark Meyerrose conducted my mock interview. Here are a few
updates from my side.
I have accepted
London Business School
admission offer. I received admission
offer from Cornell and was waitlisted in
I wish to thank your team for the great service and will recommend you to my
friends as well." B, India
It looks like we're 2 for 2 in getting over the first hurdle in the admissions
process. I just received an e-mail from
Chicago GSB extending an
interview invitation. Thanks for all your help!"
would like to convey my thanks to Matt and to your service for helping me get
into 3 top schools (Michigan, Tuck and
Darden). I even got a scholarship from
can honestly say that Matt functioned as a powerful catalyst, driving me to
think harder and tap into the essence of my life and motivations, rather than
feeding me content. The results of the story that emerged are evident -- three
admits, a scholarship and a clear conscience.
Matt: Thanks for your help!"
Your revisions are absolutely amazing, and kicked up my
application several notches. Thank you for your effort!"
Well, I've heard from every school except Columbia, which I'm not holding my
breath for. I got a $30,000 Anderson Fellowship from
UCLA, half tuition from
Yale, and am up for a full scholarship at
Cornell, the details of which I've
forwarded. I'm tempted to attend the weekend, but because I'm pretty sure
that I'll be going to UCLA, I might decline the offer. UCLA
has always been my top choice.
Thanks for all your help. I couldn't have done it without you. With all the
insight you provided and memories you evoked for my essays, I would've been
absolutely crazy to go it alone. You were like a therapist to me! Now for the hard part...Business School, although I've
heard that the hardest part is getting in. Thank you for making my UCLA dream
come true." P, California
and Jeff –
Just wanted to let you know that I was ACCEPTED to
yesterday. I am now 3-for-3! I never would have guessed. Thanks again for
David – I would be more than happy to write a
testimonial (or whatever would be helpful to you). Just let me know."
J, Washington, DC
I got the call from
so I was quite excited. Still waiting on the others. Again thank you for your
help." C, Illinois
Hope you are having a great day. I just wanted to say thanks for taking the
time to write all that feedback for each of my essays, going back and forth so
many times. Before you even help me with editing, I like how you encourage me
to give it more thoughts in specific areas. Your guidance has been very
insightful and essential to giving me the right direction in my efforts. I
have done my own share of MBA essay research with books and websites, and I
still do, yet you still have a level of experience and perspective that is
beyond that. Thanks for your help thus far Matt. I know you have been doing
all this consulting for a number of years now, and your expertise shows, but I
just hope you know that your help really is appreciated and I will owe you big
time once I get in."
" I can't emphasize enough how instrumental Kent
Harrill was in my business school application process.
Although Kent was helpful in every aspect, I
particularly found the most value in our initial
strategizing sessions. Framed by the essay topics,
those application strategy consultations resulted in
the strongest possible message about who I am and what
my careers goals are. After those initial sessions,
the essay writing process was surprisingly
Having been accepted to my top choice of business
schools, I say with complete confidence that it would
not have been possible without the guidance and
preparation offered by Admissions Consultant Kent
Harrill. It was one of the smartest investments I could have made." M, Texas
I have some
great news. I got admitted into
Duke for the class of 2007. I have just
got over the 'honeymooning' from last night:). I wanted to thank you for all the
help you have provided me with my application. Your help and guidance were
invaluable and I could not have done it without you. I am really unable to
express my gratitude for you in words. Thanks again!"
WOHOOO!! I got in [Wharton]!!! I am totally floored ... I honestly wasn't
expecting to be accepted!
Thank you so much for all of your help ... I truly think I
wouldn't have made it in without it!"
Your mock interview was awesome ... Really gave me some great pointers on how
Thank you thank you thank you thank you!!!"
"Hey Kent --
One piece of good news to finish off the process:
UNIVERSITY OF CHICAGO!!!!!!!
Thank you so much for your help in this successful process. It's unbelievable
to think that I got into all these schools -- could not have done it without
your help. As this process is finally done (thank God), look for my
recommendation letter in the mail.
It was great working with you and let's be sure to keep in
touch." E, Illinois
