My name is Greg Guglielmo and I am the Founder of Avanti Prep, a boutique MBA admissions consulting firm. I pride myself on delivering a unique degree of quality, commitment, depth, and impact per engagement, and I truly believe that this produces differentiated results. Beyond taking my word for it, I encourage you to read the (often very detailed) testimonials below.
Those testimonials provide insight into how past clients viewed their experiences with Avanti Prep — and in many cases how those experiences compared to applicants’ previous experiences applying on their own or with another firm. The testimonials tend to be very specific, creating greater transparency with respect to process, impact, and client results.
I earned my MBA from Berkeley-Haas, where I served on Haas’s 8-person student admissions team, conducted interviews, received a Haas Leadership Scholarship, and graduated with honors. I completed my undergraduate degree at Georgetown University (magna cum laude, Phi Beta Kappa). Prior to founding Avanti Prep, I worked with applicants at Critical Square.
I’ve worked for a leading private equity firm in San Francisco and was a Vice President at J.P. Morgan in New York, managing client relationships in the firm’s Asset Management business. My written work has been published in leading media outlets, including ESPN and Nate Silver’s FiveThirtyEight (ABC News), and covered by The New York Times and The Washington Post.
This unique combination of client, business, and professional storytelling experience comes in very handy when we’re in the (exciting) throes of application development and essay reviews!
Avanti Prep has built a first-class reputation for the quality, commitment, depth, and attention to detail that we deliver, as well as for our expertise across MBA admissions, storytelling, coaching, and messaging. We realize that’s more or less what everyone on here says, so the best recommendation we can make is to read the testimonials below.
Menu of Services and Associated Costs
Avanti Prep offers Workshops, Packages, Hourly Services, and à la carte Interview Prep, as well as Pre-Application Advisory and Career Services (details below).
Despite having one of the strongest reputations in the marketplace, our Hourly Services pricing ranks among the most affordable when measured against industry peers. On average, Avanti Prep clients save $43 to $123 *per hour* relative to similar marketplace offerings – for what we (and countless former clients) believe is a superior experience.
Our Interview Prep offering is similarly well regarded. The full 3-hour service includes an extended school-specific mock interview (~60 minutes) plus comprehensive feedback and response strategy (~120 minutes). Similarly priced offerings typically include only a 30- to 45-minute mock interview and a 30- to 45-minute feedback session.
We also offer discounted Pre-Application Advisory (for those planning to apply in the future) and Career Services (e.g., career guidance, resume and cover letter reviews). One of the greatest testaments to the quality we deliver and relationships we build is the fact that many of our former “application clients” reach out for Career Services once enrolled.
