    Alterrell was critical in taking my MBA essays to the next level. While I knew why I wanted to go to business school, Alterrell helped me translate my experience and thoughts into a cohesive narrative. He not only edited he also pushed me to see my essays through the eyes of an admissions department, which ultimately helped me land at my dream school: Stanford GSB. Alterrell will ask the right questions and provide the critical feedback to ensure your application reflects depth, drive, and the personal touch needed to stand out from other applicants.
