  • Amazing Experience

    Candy is probably the person who knows more about MBAs in Spain. She is been very supportive, available when I need her, even in late hours. Very dedicated to her job. She has helped me through the whole process and willing to go the extra mile. She takes the best of every candidate and transforms them into a unique application. She can make the difference between an acceptance and a rejection. If you do not hire her, you will probably lose a great opportunity of getting accepted.

    Candy was recommended to me by several friends so I decided to work with her. My GMAT was low so it made a lot of sense to choose a good application consultant. Candy for sure did not disappoint! She manages to understand the applicant’s profile, their strengths and their match with the different schools. After obtaining this view, she advises on which universities you could have a fit in and most importantly, those that are not worth even trying. She is very transparent and direct, but also a very close person who cares for her clients also on a more personal level. I can totally recommend working with Candy. For me, it was definitely a game changer!

    I was not a good GMAT taker and my 670 required to put all efforts into my INSEAD application. After speaking to Candy she kindly accepted to work together. I had the advantage of a nice story to tell (transactions+strategy consultancy+corporate) and she really helped me to show the best of me on my application. I also sometimes need some kind push and Candy will always set some sort of internal calendar and deadlines to coordinate with you. Very accessible and friendly. Pricing was reasonable.

  • The Key to My Application Success!!
    2 years ago
    Candy proved to be the support system I needed throughout my whole application’s journey. I got a late start into the applications process and a second-year MBA student recommended me to go through the process with Candy, which was truly the best choice I could have made. Since the very first moment, Candy was helpful and on-point, keeping me on track and in time with all the procedures and deadlines. Candy knows all the Business Schools inside out, she knows exactly not only what I needed to show for each school, but also what needed to be done at each point in time. Understanding my own strengths and weaknesses was also an essential part of the process and Candy helped me to see myself through ...

  • She Makes You Shine & Keep You Focused
    2 years ago
    I discovered Candy in the middle of the application process. I had already reflected on my essays and even drafted most of them, but I thought I could use some advice. I could tell from our first call that she knows what she talks about. Candy helped me organize my story, provided extremely useful tips of where to develop further and which stories required further back-up with examples, also what info didn't add value (beware of the word count!). I saved time, stayed motivated to continue improving my essays and, last but not least, felt accompanied during the toughest parts of the MBA application journey. I got accepted at my first (and only) choice.

  • Value Adding Support
    3 years ago
    Since my very first interview with Candy, she proved to be extremely helpful. Not only did she know what each of the Business Schools focused on and helped me adapt the admission process, but also guided me through the self-reflection process needed to identify my strong and weak points. Her comprehensive service covers all the steps of the process, from CV set-up to interviews. Experienced and with a long success track-record, I think Candy is the best option to succeed in the competitive task of entering your desired Business School.

    Looking back on the long and tough MBA application process, it is clear to me that Candy played an instrumental role in me getting an offer at my target B-school. Since the very beginning in the MAP session, Candy helped me shape my story, identifying what experiences were meaningful and worth telling. Her help throughout the essay drafting process, providing insightful feedback in each iteration, was invaluable in getting all I needed to say within the word limit.

  • Great support, got accepted into my first choice school
    3 years ago
    I have already been admitted to my top choice school and I am confident that a big part of my admission is thanks to Candy´s great advice and support throughout the process. Beginning with the MAP session, she helped me clarify doubts that I couldn't clarify online and to create a clear, structured road map to getting into my first choice. She was also of incredible help with the essays. She clearly knows what each top business school is looking for and she supported me in highlighting things she thought the school would find interesting. I didn't have to work much with her, as I got accepted in the only school I applied, but overall she was super helpful and I totally recommend her.

  • Candy will help you reach your goals!
    3 years ago
    My friend introduced me to Candy after she got into to her dream school and I am so glad she did. Candy helped me identify my flaws and strengths to bolster my essays as a re-applicant. Candy's detail to attention and promptness in getting back to me with edits really helped me move forward. Her support went beyond essay edits, as she would consult me even when I was stressed with the application process. Thanks to Candy I was admitted to my dream school recently, and I really couldn't have done it without her.

  • CANDY IS SIMPLY THE BEST
    3 years ago
    Candy guided me through the all process (app, essays, interviews…) for many US schools. She really knows them very well and has had very positive experiences with many of my friends. I can only be thankful for her services. I was accepted to my first choice in a short period of time, but not before putting forth huge effort and hard work. She rapidly identified my weaknesses and strengths and helped me show the best version of myself for each of the universities. She has always been willing to help me and has been available 24/7. Would I count on her services again? OF COURSE.

    Since the first interview with her, Candy knew which strengths I should underline through all the elements of the application (CV, essays, videos…).

  • AMAZING. The Perfect Consultant and Coach.

    I have to thank a lot of things to LaBalle Admissions. Because of my medical background, I was scared about how I would prepare an application to a top MBA. I am glad I asked for help to LaBalle Admissions. Candy is not an advisor, but also a coach. She gives you constant support, both professionally and personally—anytime at all. She has a fantastic ability to extract strengths from someone, skills that you would never think as strengths. As a medical doctor, she really helped me present my application to admissions and to share clearly how I would fit in the MBA, also with her expert editing process. Also, she helped me prepare the interview through highly valuable mock sessions. Otherwise, I would have done ...
