Eli David

Co-Founder

Ivy MBA Consulting

United States

Consultant Bio

At Ivy, the philosophy is simple: your application is our application. Here’s the thing – when we applied to MBA programs, we didn’t know what we were doing. And there was no one around to offer the type of help we needed. Would anyone be willing to review our essays and provide feedback? Were there any alumni who could advise us regarding school fit? — Frankly, we had no tools – all we had was a phone and some nerve. So half way through our MBA tracks at Kellogg and Tuck, we wanted to start a consulting firm that micromanaged the hell out of our clients. We wanted to be much more than essay editors; we are mentors.

As Ivy founders, we don’t consider our job done when we match a client with an advisor – our job is done when our client gets accepted. For that reason, we created a process that keeps at least 3 sets of eyes on your work at any given moment, from story allocation, career path, written collateral, to interview prep. If you’re not sick of us by the time you get your first congratulations letter, you must not have gotten it yet.

Company Information

With over 20 years of accumulated MBA wisdom and advisors who are top-tier program veterans, we are proud to say that our anti-laissez-faire approach has proved itself big time. Ivy MBA Consulting was the first admissions consulting firm in the world to verify success rate using a Big 4 accounting firm. Deloitte confirmed both the 91.2% success rate and $2,194,000 in total scholarships of Ivy MBA Consulting in 2014-2015 application season. A copy of the report is available to any who wish to double check. Previous reports are available as well.

Menu of Services and Associated Costs

The day we started Ivy we were reading essays until 4am, and that hasn’t changed a decade later. That’s because Ivy MBA Consulting does not take your investment lightly. We realize this decision is not only expensive; it will have a drastic impact on your future. That is why we created a comprehensive, multistep method that follows you through every step, with every school, and every bump along the way. Our process starts with mapping your life stories – we sift through even the most trivial details to find gems that portray your character. We then take these stories to an in-depth brainstorming session involving Ivy’s veterans to come up with the best story allocation per school. Once working on essays, we offer an unlimited number of draft iterations, as well as a final quality assurance quality pass by the founders of Ivy.

  • Truly a Game-Changing Experience
    2 months ago
    I have used several undergrad admissions consultants as well as an MBA consultant from a large admissions company prior to David, and I can very confidently say that David is the best admissions consultant I’ve ever had. I am very happy to share that, after initially feeling like I wouldn’t be able to gain admission into any business school this year, I have been accepted into Chicago Booth MBA which was my target business school. I first signed up for a very popular MBA admissions service before I signed up with David. They were extremely helpful and quick to respond until I signed up and gave them my money. Subsequently, it would take several days for them to respond to a simple email question and I ...

  • Eli is #1
    2 months ago
    When Eli says that the process does not end when you submit the application he truly means it. Actions speak louder than words and I think my story shows it. I first talked to Eli 2 years ago when the GMAT was still my barrier from starting the process to the schools I wanted, beyond the motivation Eli gave me sound advice on what to focus on and how so that I can make progress as fast as possible. Linking me to the right people and graduates to learn more about the schools and how to get the GMAT done in a good way. Once that was out of the way we started thinking together about which schools fit my professional goals and my ...

    3 months ago
    Working with Eli was an experience far beyond what I expected. I applied to only one school in the last round and needless to say – I needed this one shot to succeed. If I had to say what were the things that were most amazing in working with Ivy, I would say that they are (1) Eli’s responsiveness – he is ALWAYS available. Not sure how he does that but he really is. We jumped on briefing calls with a notice of less than an hour and often on the spot. It truly felt like he is always there for me (2) Eli’s thoroughness – even when I was ready to submit or wrap up an essay, Eli kept pushing that it could be ...

  • Eli is the best!!!
    5 months ago
    Warning: This will be a longer-than-usual review as Eli David was not my first MBA adviser, nor even my second. He was, however, my savior. Notably, I am usually not the type of person to write reviews for anybody, but my experience with Eli was so overwhelmingly positive, I had to make an exception. I’m still uncertain that 1,000 words are sufficient to describe how much Eli helped me throughout the entire journey and how much I appreciated him. I will do my best. Before the end of the round-one application process this year, I had already lost confidence in all MBA admission consultants. By that time, I’d spent nearly $15K USD on consultations but had received nearly nothing of value in return. What’s worse, ...

    I can’t stress enough how big a part Eli played in my getting into my dream MBA program. I reached out to Ivy hoping just to be able to make it into a US top-10 school, and ended up getting into Stanford!! Before working with Eli, I was sure that my low GMAT score would hold me back, but after our first few meetings, I had enough confidence to apply to schools I thought were out of my reach. Not because Eli told me only what I wanted to hear either: just the opposite, he was upfront from the get-go about the challenges we were facing. But he showed his commitment to taking on those challenges with me and being invested in the process ...

    I worked with Ivy 2 years ago when I got into Wharton where I currently am but it is never too late to chime in and let everyone know what a great experience working with David and his team was. As if getting into my dream school wasn’t proof enough, the whole process of applying was just made so smooth and seamless by Ivy. I literally cannot imagine a better application experience. I got all the support and guidance I could’ve hoped for from David, who was available and ready with an answer pretty much around the clock. At the same time, he really put his top effort and pushed me to do the same, for brainstorming my message and crafting the image that would ...

    I went into the MBA application process, not imagining that several months later I would have an offer from Stanford, HBS, AND several other M7 schools, which I think pretty much tells you everything you need to know about David and Ivy MBA Consulting. When I started out, I was so sure I couldn’t risk presenting anything less than a stellar profile that I looked for a consultant to work with way ahead of time. That’s when David impressed me from the get-go with his willingness to work with me BEFORE the normal application cycle started. He gave me important advice about career options I had that when it came time to actually apply, I ended up making a major difference. Before I even started ...

    5 months ago
    Choosing Ivy for my MBA consultant was one of the best decisions I made throughout the process —and I have my Wharton admission to show for it! Eli really impressed me with his commitment to my success, even when it didn’t just involve telling me what I wanted to hear. I don’t know how many drafts I went through for my essays, not to mention the super involved brainstorming process we had for them. Eli was adamant we couldn’t leave any stone unturned or loose ends untied, anything that would help tell my story and stand out, and he put in a lot of his own time and effort to back it up. Honestly, I felt like he really had my back, and anytime I had ...

    Eli and his team were invaluable for my MBA application and subsequent admission! In a collaborative process, Eli helped me identify my target schools, build the right strategy for each, and craft winning applications. The team has been available 24/7 throughout the entire process to listen and act on every question, idea, or change I wanted to make. Even if you've been working with someone else, or feel you can do it on your own, I would urge you to get on the phone with this group of top-notch professionals, and get a second piece of advice! After all, it is your future we're talking about here and you can't afford to compromise. I can guarantee - the investment will pay off very quickly!

    Choosing Ivy as my MBA consultant was literally the move that made the application process. From day one Eli was one-hundred percent available and ready with all the answers and support I needed. When it came to the actual application, Eli put incredible effort into helping me with everything. This made even the things I was worried about go smoothly, like crafting my essays: Eli identified strengths of mine that I didn’t think of, just because they maybe didn’t fit in a CV, but were just as important if not more to make my story compelling. I’m sure I couldn’t have presented a better version of myself than what they helped me put on paper (and later in in-person interviews). I really felt he ...

    I interviewed a number of consultants but was sold by David’s enthusiasm about my profile and conviction that I was very competitive for Harvard and Wharton. David was the consummate professional, guiding me through every step of the process and ensuring that my application was perfect before hitting submit. David significantly increased the quality of my application which is evidenced by my eventual admittance to Wharton. David’s interview prep and mock-TBD were both game-changing and gave me a significant leg up once I was invited to the interview process for Wharton. All in all, David made a huge effort to get to know me, and my story, and helped me present it in an incredibly compelling way that I could never have imagined without his help. I ...

The application process was a tiring and exhausting process and I cannot stress enough how much Sharon’s support and guidance helped me go through it successfully.

    On my first conversation with Ivy Consulting, they told me that “we are about changing lives”. Six months later, I can’t emphasize how much they were right. I went into the applications process with some hesitations, without being sure about my future directions, fearing that I would not be admitted to one of the top schools I’ve applied to. Thanks to Eli, I learned how to write a coherent essay about myself, not underestimate my achievements, and gained confidence in English essay writing. Maya (his colleague) did a wonderful job preparing me for the interview. He was always accessible and professional. Thanks to his consulting, my application was uncomparable to my original essays and ideas. Eventually, thanks to him and his team, I was admitted ...

Looking back at the process, I can honestly say that having Eli and his team as my consultants made the difference.

    Working with David and Sharon was clearly the main factor for my success in the process. I placed all my eggs in one basket and submitted it to one M7 school. To make things more challenging, I was targeting a specific, extremely competitive, full scholarship. Writing this review is obviously after I succeeded in achieving both objectives. Both David and Sharon were available throughout the process to work on all the documents. They made me work hard and put in a lot of work on the documents. We had great brainstorming sessions and I felt the best version of me was definitely coming out. And as I mentioned, the results were perfect. Thank you guys for an amazing experience!!

    In my opinion, Eli is one of the best MBA consultants. He is really strong at strategic planning and storytelling. In the early stage, when we discussed the right MBA programs for my background and career goals, Eli showed me a deep dive analysis and presented the strength of each top program. In addition, he also gave me an overview of his working style and the entire application process with a roadmap, alleviating my concern. Moreover, because of his excellent strategy, we were able to manage the time efficiently and eventually submit 4 applications at round 1 within a tight timeline. Eli’s other strength is his storytelling ability. To help me distinguish from other applicants for the top MBA programs, Eli pushed really hard on ...

Unsure whether I wanted to work with an MBA consultant at all, I took calls with more than 10 top firms that appealed to me on the P&Q list. David stood out to me for two main reasons...  (1) Speed: he responded to me within hours and set up the first call the same day, offering me a small demo of what it might look like to work together (2) No "bs": when you go through the process of scouting consultants, you end up hearing a lot of the same pitches.

    I first talked to Eli 2 years before starting my application for my MBA - from that point on Eli has mentored me in choices to help me get into a top MBA program. When working on my application Eli has been there for me almost 24/7, always available for a call on every small detail. His advices are priceless - in every conversation with him it is clear that he is a professional who has been doing this for years. I had already recommended Eli to one of my closest friends - which is probably the best sign of how happy I am that I chose to work with him, and I would definitely recommend that to everyone.

    I can share many things about my process with David and Ivy but the bottom line is that I applied to a single top-5 school and was admitted. I was impressed by Ivy’s process all along but will mention two exceptionally outstanding things that helped me the most: the first was the management of the process, the drive of David and his team to get me in. They supported me and were extremely proactive throughout the process. This process is not easy and is extremely demanding, and David was able to push me every part of the way. The second is the people. Everyone I worked with at Ivy cared about me and wanted my success. I felt I was in great hands and I ...

  • Turned Top-10 MBA Application Into Almost Exact Science!
    1 year ago
    I came to David after working on 1st round applications with another advisor and, although having a solid professional profile and experience, good academics and a GMAT of above 700, was rejected by all 3 schools I applied to. I was perplexed and was losing hope but soon it became clear how David's thorough methodology was far superior to what I had experienced prior. David completely revised my application strategy and made perfect sense connecting my professional past, present, and future aspirations to present me as an attractive candidate for leading schools. Starting with my resume, David laid down very strict guidelines that help make my resume stand out, including the importance of quantitative data that help the reader unambiguously perceive my achievements as ...

    I researched close to 6-7 consulting companies and 2-3 independent advisers and all signs pointed toward IVY being the best option -- they did not disappoint! Working with IVY, I got into 4/5 schools that I applied to and got wait-listed in the 5th. This was a result of the professionalism, attention to detail and experience that David brings to the table. At IVY I worked with a consultant that David hand-picked for me based on my background and school selection, but he was involved in the process throughout. The biggest thing that stood out to me was the attention to detail. I went through multiple iterations on every essay until David and team felt it was nothing short of perfect.

    My MBA application journey was a whirlwind. As recent as October of 2018, I had no idea that I was going to be pursuing an MBA. Essentially a lost puppy with no idea of what direction I was going in, I googled for an MBA consultant and found Eli's profile. Keep in mind, I had never worked with a consultant before and was quite hesitant to hire one because I felt that given sufficient time, I would be able to figure it out myself. Unfortunately, I had never even looked into MBA programs and didn't have the faintest idea of even the top programs to aim for; at this point, I had to go with one. After reading Eli's profile and the 40 some-odd reviews on ...

    When I decided to apply to a top-school MBA, I approached friends and colleagues who were already admitted to programs at Harvard and Columbia, asking who they would recommend as the best guide through the application process. I kept getting the same answer, delivered with overwhelmingly positive praise: Eli David. I reached out to Ivy, and we started working together on my application. Eli provided support that was nothing short of amazing. His advice, guidance, strategic insight and encouragement to share personal stories I would have never thought to put forward in an MBA application, were invaluable.

    Before choosing to go with Eli, I had checked other admission consultants. Most looked at my dry credentials and concluded I have little chance of being admitted to one of the 5 top B-school and recommended to take a few "safety schools" from the bottom of the list. Eli was the one who truly believed in me and gave me the confidence I needed, making me feel like I was the only candidate he worked with. The first time my “story” was essentially and holistically examined was during my first call with Eli, who offered a complex, data and experience-driven analysis of my chances of being admitted to several target schools. His many years of experience give him an unparalleled advantage. Today, I can wholeheartedly say ...

Can't say enough about Eli. He is absolutely the right person to have on your side. It's hard to review a service like a bschool consultant, because most people will only use one consultant in their lifetime. However, if I were applying again, I'd choose Eli again without hesitation. Bschool applicants are all capable of writing their own application. With that being said, I did not want a person to just look over my essays. Eli spent most of his time listening to my life stories, and helping me figure out myself. ...

Even when things did not go as planned and when problems appeared (and it is a long process, so issues are inevitable) they were able to find a creative solution, while providing excellent service. I highly recommend working with them and follow their guidance. They got me into MIT:)

  • End-to-end professional support
    2 years ago
    Eli and the Ivy’s team has been outstanding during the stressful days of the MBA application process. My journey with Eli started months before the submission due date when he guided and helped me to evaluate the different schools and to choose the right ones for me. Once decision has been made I was collaborating with one of Ivy’s great consultants while Eli is always making sure that things are on track. Furthermore, it is important to understand that working with Ivy means an end-to-end support, from day one all the way to interview preparations. Eli’s comprehensive guidance has been mostly reflected to me when few months after receiving my desirable offer he helped me applying to a major scholarship that I received, significantly helping ...

  • The AMAZING results speak for themselves!
    2 years ago
    These days it's absolutely crucial to work with professional admissions consultants before applying to an MBA- It's so competitive out there that having a good team behind you is what makes the difference between an admissions offer/scholarship and a rejection. This is especially true if you're aiming at an Ivy League school. I worked with Eli and Ivy MBA Consulting - and was extremely happy with them! I felt I had support every step of the way- They helped me understand what's important to emphasize in my CV, how to write my essays in the most concise and impact-full way and how to be prepared for my interviews. They are really a full-package-one-stop-shop for getting in to your dream school. With their help, I got interviews ...

    David and the Ivy Team were instrumental in my getting into my dream M7 school. I entered the MBA process fairly naively, thinking I can dabble on GMAT here and the application story there. The Ivy team were great mentors to me throughout the process and pushed me hard above and beyond - there is no “break” when you’re working with them! The process is highly structured but also catered to your individual stories. From initial strategy and positioning based on your strengths to guidance throughout the interview process, Ivy provides no-bs support and feedback throughout the entire admissions life cycle. I would send drafts in at 11pm and get feedback in my inbox the very next morning. No doubt Ivy is highly invested in ...

  • Super professional and got me to HBS!
    2 years ago
    Every person I talked with about his or her application process recommended working with Ivy. Super professional, caring and attentive! I got 24/7 support and a lot of important tips about the different schools and the application process. My feeling was that your success is Ivy's success. Ivy's network is very wide and they can connect you with students and alums from every possible school. They have years of experience and you know that for any question you have, you'll get the right answer. Thanks to Eli I got into HBS!

  • Greatest MBA Consultant ever!
    2 years ago
    Eli is the type of guy that would do anything to get his clients his wishing. Including calling the dean himself and disputing the decision. And that is exacly what I wanted when I hired him! Eli is extremely dedicated to his students, which is why he has the highest acceptance rates of all the consultants I considered. In addition, when Eli helped me to get into Harvard and Wharton , he provided 4 consultants dedicated to me. A CV expert, an essay expert, a personal interview expert, and a team-based discussion (Wharton) simulation. All four were working under Eli's umbrella to make sure that I get the best service that I can get. Thank you so much for all your help Eli!

    2 years ago
    My experience with Ivy MBA Consulting was more than just smooth sailing – it got me even further than I expected to go. Everyone involved was professional and knowledgeable, especially David, the founder, who takes a personal interest in every client. His evaluation of my profile refocused me on schools I didn't think I had a chance at. I ended up applying to only the top 4 schools and got into two of them. And yes – in one of the top 2 as well!! I felt safe putting my trust in David’s and the rest of the team’s opinions, and never felt a reason to second-guess. The Ivy team also continually pushes you to make that extra effort to turn your application into ...

  • Results and guidance
    2 years ago
    Eli allowed me to get two acceptances, and two waiting lists out of four applications. My profile was not ideal for a MBA, I received many suggestions to avoid trying, and none of the members of my circle ever did similar programmes. Eli from the beginning gave me great advice, guidance, support, and coaching. He made me understand the intricacies of the application process, with the information that you will not find on the websites or books. It is thanks to him that I was able to get accepted and enjoy one of the best periods of my life. I recommend 100%.

    I applied to business school with a nontraditional background and working with Ivy MBA Consulting was extremely beneficial for me.

During the process I felt that the work and feedback that Ivy provided was instructive, timely, and always high quality.

  • Eli/Ivy proved a pivotal life/career choice
    2 years ago
    Eli and his team are simply one of the best in the business. I researched almost 12 companies before deciding to work with Ivy. They are candid and also helped present my experience and skills in the most honest yet impressive light in my apps and essays. They know all the schools intimately and also are very pleasant people to work with in this intense and stressful process. I ended up getting into one of my dream schools. These are not just words and I am not big on exaggeration, these are understatements. His help truly changed the course of my life - I recommend them in the strongest possible terms. I currently attend CBS.

    I met Eli when I first started to think about MBA in the U.S. He was willing to spend significant time even with someone like me, who was not sure at all that he will apply. Throughout the process Eli was professional and candid. I think that he made a great job helping me decide which schools are a good fit for me, which is crucial for an international student who doesn't really know them well. Working with him was demanding and intense, but he is very experienced and always knew what to say when things were hard. While some consultants may simply prepare your application for you, Eli forced me to think and work hard - and it paid off. The bottom line is ...

    Once I decided to peruse my MBA I knew I had to put everything I’ve got. The race is long and as an applicant, you have no way to really know your competition. Having an expert on your side will benefit you and David is that expert. Ivy Consulting is a team of professionals who know what works and how to guide you and make sure you get there. The application process is extensive and entails a lot of self-evaluation and retrospective, having a consultant that knows you, cares about your success and genuinely wants you to excel is a must. These are exactly the traits that Ivy Consulting provides. I went through this process determined to be as ready as I can be to ...

    From shaping my application strategy to thoroughly preparing me for my HBS interview, Ivy's thoughtful people have done everything just right. They are super professional, have a ton of experience and are ready to put an endless effort to achieve your (truly) mutual goal.

Beyond this, Eli was also super helpful in guiding me through the thoughts process before I even committed to applying, and made me realize what was realistic for me to expect of myself. I got into my top school, HBS, and others as well, and received a very significant amount in scholarship. I am very thankful to Eli and his team and have recommended ...

  • David and team Ivy were one my best choices in life

    I'm writing this for me. I want to remember always how great a part IVY had in realizing my life goals. I could not have done this without them. Under the guidance of Lianne and David, I managed to get to 3 out of my four dream schools and get maximum fellowships. When I got the big bold “YES” from my mostly strived school, I felt like I could have achieved anything. If I would have decided, a decade ago, to become an astronaut – today I could have become one. That was the feeling. I remember that time once when one of Ivy representative called me to ask if I was pleased with the process. It was at mid-July, several weeks prior application submission. I answered ...

  • Absolute professionals when it comes to MBA admissions consulting
    2 years ago
    My acquaintance with David had begun way before I even took the GMAT. When I contacted him, at the advice of a friend of mine, he gave me priceless advice helping me to better position myself towards the application process. When I finally started applying I was exposed to Ivy's strong professionalism and know-how, which manifested in a meticulously planned process. David and his colleagues' advice and input made a huge and measurable difference in each phase: the initial strategic planning, the writing of the application materials, the preparation for the interviews (including invaluable mocks), the scholarship essays, and the final decision between the schools. David and Ivy's team were always available and responded promptly to each question or worry that I had, something that ...

  • Eli David is an absolute miracle worker & #1 in the b-school consulting business

    Spoiler Alert: I interviewed at Harvard, was admitted to Columbia, and will be starting at Wharton this fall as a merit scholarship recipient (I only applied to these three programs). But I can assure you that I'm not the all-star b-school candidate that you might be imagining. I didn't go to a fancy undergrad, my GPA was just average, my gmat score was just above 700, and I am a non-traditional applicant a few years older than the average b-school student. My x-factor was undeniably Eli David. I am absolutely certain that I would not have had the success I had without Eli, Rom, and the IVY team- it's a definitive fact. It's truly difficult to effectively capture the profound amount of knowledge and expertise ...

    Ivy MBA Consulting got me the results that I wanted. The working methodology is very well-organized and builds you up to reach your full potential.  The consultants are very responsive to questions, provided an excellent background on each school’s application process, and provided clear guidance on the elements of my profile that fitted well with each school. During the first round I applied to 4 top 7 universities at the US with different MBA consultant and was dissatisfied with the results. I decided to use Ivy MBA Consulting services during the second round after I consulted with many friends of being a great MBA consulting company. The results were amazing, I was admitted to 3 out of 5 universities with a significant scholarship!!! I 100% ...

    Eli and the team at Ivy consulting where there for me in every step of the long journey towards a top-tier MBA. From helping me understand which schools are right for me, to brainstorming a great strategy for each school, unrelentlessly honing the essays I have written until they were perfect, and preparing me for interviews. Eli has also been extremely flexible and accomodating towards certain specific constraints I had along the way, and always available to provide guidance or a quick answer for a question that "bugged" me. Not only did I feel great throughout the process, the end results speak for themselves - I was admitted to three top-tier schools, each with a generous scholarship, and Ivy consulting has a huge part in that achievement.

  • Not just a number - a consultant who truly listens

    David has been a tremendous help and over the past year and has helped through 7 applications leading to an admission into a top MBA. Most consultants I talked to dissed me because I was too young but David believed in me. With Ivy, you're not a number, you're a person with your aspirations and dreams. This is what differentiates them from other consultants. David, Lianne and the others were always here to help when I faced a difficult decision, always here to listen when I had concerns. For instance, while other consultants suggested I diversify my target schools and apply to some tier-2 school although I specifically told them that I did not want to do so, David understood my decision and ...
