  • Admitted into INSEAD

    To apply for my MBA, I sought consultation from Mollie Wolin from Expartus. I truly enjoyed working with Mollie as I have seen her passion to what she does and her investment in me and my application. Mollie was very understanding of the cultural differences and has helped me leverage that into my essays, she helped me build my own personal brand which got me into INSEAD. Mollie's help did not stop at the application stage, she was extremely helpful in prepping me for my interviews and giving me the valuable insights she has on the schools I applied to. Mollie's availability and quick responses made it possible for me to apply to my MBA in a very short period of time, she understood my ...

  • Review from a Non-Traditional Applicant

    I'd done the initial free consultations with several well-known consultants. Because of my non-traditional background, they all told me to aim for a lower-ranked school, with the exception of Expartus.

The staff at Expartus provided me with more than ...

  • Great Experience
    3 years ago
    My experience with Expartus could not have gone any better. While I thought I had an idea of my story and how I would articulate it in my applications, my Expartus coach worked tirelessly with me to re-direct and refine my story. Key to this was not only the highly effective 1v1 sessions that I had with my coach, but the introspective journey that Expartus forces one to go through to really understand what his/her story and differentiated proposition is. I highly recommend Expartus to anyone applying for an MBA program.
