Consultant Bio

After leaving a career in financial services, Heidi Granner headed to the University of Chicago Booth School of Business to earn her MBA. Among her other activities while studying at Chicago Booth, she worked as a member of the admissions team evaluating applications and interviewing candidates. After graduating, Heidi began a career in management consulting with The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), where she worked with clients in consumer goods, financial services, and industrial goods while guiding BCG Associates through the MBA admissions process in her free time. She was also heavily involved in recruiting, including interviewing more than 100 MBA students and leading a project to define BCG’s global recruiting strategy. She later joined The Wonderful Company as Director of Strategy, where she worked primarily on the Cuties Clementines business, all the while redesigning and leading recruiting efforts for the Strategy Group. Heidi found her passion in one-on-one coaching and has worked as a full-time MBA admissions coach for six years.  She was selected to lead Beat the GMAT’s Write Like an Expert Series for Booth and was invited to meet with admissions teams on-campus at Wharton, Columbia, University of Texas, and NYU.

  • The Most Thoughtful & Organized Cheerleader That Will Get You In!
    2 months ago
    When I started the application process, I had a pretty clear sense of where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do through my MBA...but absolutely no sense on how to articulate it all clearly and coherently. Heidi helped me sort through the "brain dump" of information I had related to my career journey and passions to craft a series of sharp essays and stories for me to share with schools. And I got into my top choice in Round 1, with a scholarship! Heidi was super easy to work with - easy to talk to, flexible on timing, quick to respond, and gave very tactical/actionable feedback. With her help, the whole process was much more manageable and I was way more confident. ...

  • Wonderful Experience With Heidi
    5 months ago
    I was initially only planning on using mbaMission’s free 30-minute consultation, but Heidi provided so much helpful insight on how to frame my planned career path during our first conversation that I decided to pay for additional hourly support. These additional hours were well worth the money and helped me substantially improve my personal essays and create an overall cohesive application. I don’t think I would have gotten into my top choice school without Heidi’s help! I would highly recommend working with Heidi!

  • Heidi Is The Best
    5 months ago
    I cannot recommend Heidi enough. I especially recommend Heidi for those with non-traditional backgrounds. She taught me how to translate my skills and goals so they could be universally understandable – not just to someone in my sector. I had trouble expressing how it applied in a business context, and she adeptly interviewed me and highlighted how my experience could be better understood. She kept me on track and made sure my application had a consistent narrative from start to finish. The mbaMission structure was helpful and allowed me to focus on writing the application materials instead of scheduling and coordination. Above all, she was kind and supportive throughout the process.

  • HBS & Wharton- Heidi Adds SIGNIFICANT Value
    6 months ago
    Heidi is a superstar consultant and has helped me achieve excellent results. I was a bit skeptical of admissions consulting and mbaMission because of the fees, but after working with Heidi, I think it was definitely worth the investment and more. I started the process without having yet taken the GMAT, and so she helped me develop a comprehensive 6 month action plan that incorporated the test prep time. Heidi pushed me to brainstorm my work experience and background in a comprehensive document early on, and given her vast experience with the different schools, she helped me choose the right stories for the school prompts. When it comes to essays, Heidi was amazing at helping me sharpen my ideas and focus on what matters most ...

  • Awesome Experience With Heidi
    7 months ago
    I was able to get into one of the M7 schools thanks to countless working with Heidi. She helped me understand the entire application process on a whole new level. I wouldn’t have succeeded without her wealth of experience, patience, commitment, and most importantly, her passion for helping me develop my own story. Throughout the application process, Heidi was extremely attentive to every detail that mattered. She was always responsive and honest with me whenever I had any questions or concerns. She constantly pushed me to think deeper about my narratives, essays, and even short questions in the data form. Even in the days leading up to the submission deadline, she really stretched herself to allow me a couple more revisions until I could not ...

    Overall, I enjoyed Heidi's services and am very pleased to see results as someone coming from a non-traditional industry. Heidi has always been very responsive and friendly throughout this application process. Her comments on my essays provoked many of my own deep thoughts and recollections that are critical yet otherwise might have been missed if not for her editing. The whole process is fairly structural with good timing for each step of the way. I paid for a 3 school package and DIY'd 2 on my own. Heidi was also able to provide me with lots of help on the additional schools while she can. Like many other consulting services, Heidi's support would still rely on my own good tracking of progress and time management. ...

    7 months ago
    Heidi was integral to my MBA application process, and I truly could not recommend her enough. When I first met with her, I was very lost on where to begin with my essays and she provided several exercises to get me going. From there, I was able to find a thread throughout my life/career that felt true to who I am and where I'm going. Without her, I am positive that I wouldn't have come out with such a strong essay. Heidi was also very helpful in preparing me for interviews by conducting a simulated mock interview where she asked some tough questions and gave honest, constructive feedback. I know I wouldn't have been as well prepared without her. Finally, she played a major role ...

  • So Helpful
    7 months ago
    I looked at 4 MBA admissions consulting firms and chose mbaMission for several reasons: I had a few friends who had used them (and all got into M7 schools), and because my initial conversation with Heidi was very positive. Heidi has lots of admissions experience in general and with candidates with a similar profile to myself (having not come from a more traditional career path). Heidi was extremely responsive over email throughout the process, and I always felt supported and clear about my timeline. Even when my first few GMAT attempts did not go according to plan and we needed to change the timeline, she was able to draw up a new calendar and I did not feel rushed or behind the ball. Heidi was ...

  • Heidi Was Wonderful To Work With!
    7 months ago
    I decided to work with Heidi because I needed someone to work through my essays with me and help me to understand the best way to craft my story for business school. Heidi delivered on all of this and more by making the process enjoyable and helping me to think about what I wanted the schools to know about me. She was very good at asking questions to understand where I wanted to go and helping me to come up with concrete examples that would demonstrate my claims. She was also very accessible and always willing to help when I needed it. I would absolutely recommend that anyone applying to business school work with Heidi.

  • No Regrets With Heidi!!!
    7 months ago
    I was hesitant about investing in an MBA admissions consulting firm because of the price tag, and looking back I have no regrets in investing in the hourly services package with MBAmission. Every minute spent with Heidi was SO SO valuable - she helped me get into every school that I wanted to get into and clearly directed me/answered all of my questions. Whether it was my resume review, outlining my essays, or even random questions about my application goals. She understood how I wanted to spend my time and never wasted a minute working with me. I could not have done it without her!!!!

  • Absolutely Fantastic Application Support!
    7 months ago
    I worked with Heidi in preparing 4 round 1 applications for 2021/2022 admissions cycle (i.e., for spots in the class of 2024) and she was the most amazing resource as I completed my essays and prepared for my interviews. I could rely on her to provide helpful, constructive feedback without undermining my confidence and she was a stellar communicator -- always being clear about when I would hear back from her and what to expect. I was on the fence about using an admissions coaching service and I am SO beyond glad that I did. Heidi was such a wonderful resource for me and I credit her with helping me to have such a successful application experience.

    I enquired about mbaMission following a year of studying and 5 unsuccessful GMAT attempts. The pressure of getting a test score that I was comfortable with was all-consuming. I hadn't even begun to think about the application process with round one deadlines only a few months away. Working with Heidi immediately lifted the weight of the world off of my shoulders. With years of experience helping aspiring MBA students get admitted into the schools of their dreams, Heidi put together a comprehensive game plan to ensure that I met all of my deadlines. It felt like Heidi was truly invested in my success throughout the process, providing detailed feedback and guidance on every component of my application. Heidi took a genuine interest in learning about my ...

    2 years ago
    After struggling with my essays for a whole month, I decided to get a consultant to help me improve them. Choosing Heidi was one of the best decisions that I'd made in my application process. She first helped me realign my career goal with what I've accomplished and what might be more possible. Then, we started working on my essays and resumes. She was very insightful, always asking the right questions to keep pushing me to reflect on myself, to dig deeper into my stories, and to realize what I want to highlight and what is unnecessary. In addition, she knew very well how to motivate others, and turned the painful writing/revising into a smooth process. With her help, my essays became a lot more compact ...

    I had just finished my fourth attempt at the GMAT and was finally happy with my score, but I had a new problem. I was 6 weeks out from my first deadline. I spent a week conducting consultations and reading review after review after review - I get it, reviews seem fabricated and even one bad review must be a red flag, but TRUST Heidi. I knew at this point I had to decide, against four other consultants and companies, I chose Heidi. In our consultation, Heidi gave me an objective perspective and didn't feed me what I wanted to hear nor disparaged me into thinking I would get into no school without her. She was direct but honest. We hit the ground running and had ...

    In spring 2020, I declined five acceptances to MBA programs due to COVID-19. Although I was accepted to my dream school, Wharton, I hoped to reapply and earn a scholarship. With Round 1 deadlines quickly approaching, I questioned whether I should also throw my hat in at Harvard. During my first call with Heidi, she helped me unpack my story, dig deeper, and uncover a side to myself that I had been afraid to share. She assured me that we could create two compelling packages for HBS and Wharton within a few weeks. Her support gave me the confidence to apply to both schools. When I submitted my essays to Heidi for review, she responded quickly and provided feedback that was tangible and in-line with ...

  • Heidi Is A Rockstar Consultant

    I can highly recommend Heidi Granner and mbaMission to any applicant looking for guidance throughout the MBA application process and having doubts about the overall strength of their profile. For the context, I'm an international student with a number of strengths, but quite a few issues to overcome or mitigate. To name a few, age (I'll be in my mid-30s upon graduation), non-posh and trendy finance background, number of pre-MBA employers, ok but not stellar GMAT, and non-MBA recommenders were on top of my lengthy list of concerns. Without a doubt, working with Heidi was one of the best, if not the best decision I have made during my pre-MBA journey. She provided invaluable guidance throughout the process, from narrowing down the list of target ...

I wanted someone to help me thoughtfully structure the process, plan goals and deadlines, serve as a sounding board and just, in general, help me take a very programmatic approach to the daunting task of applying to business school. I also wanted someone who could help me maximize my strengths while minimizing my weaknesses. I can say with certainty that I got exactly what I was hoping for in working with Heidi. She was organized, detailed, thoughtful, responsive, and helpful in both brainstorming/big ideas, interview prep, and the nitty-gritty of essay writing. She was also considerate and just a generally compassionate person, which was really important for me as I had some ...

    I had the pleasure of working with Heidi Granner in the summer and fall of 2020. The process of applying was daunting, but Heidi made the process seamless and enjoyable! I was matched with Heidi early on and was immediately impressed by her credentials and knowledge. After the initial consultation, I did not initiate the application process for several months after our initial consultation however, Heidi was immediately responsive and eager to work with me during a seemingly busy time. Heidi was an insightful, proactive, and professional consultant. Her admissions knowledge led me to discover the right target schools given my professional background, test scores (lower), and career goals. Originally, I thought my “dream” schools were X, Y & Z, but Heidi steered me in ...

    Heidi is a fantastic consultant who helped me turned around my MBA application. I would recommend her to anyone who’s considering working with an application consultant. I am impressed with her level of professionalism, thoughtfulness, and dedication. For background, I was a reapplicant at the time, after failing to be admitted into the top programs a year earlier. Although I had great GPAs and GMAT scores, I came from a nontraditional background and had difficulty branding myself. So, I was nervous going into the reapplication cycle. Heidi first carefully reviewed my applications from the previous year and assured me that I had enough qualifications to be accepted into the programs that I applied to. Then she pointed out mistakes that I made and suggested changes ...

She provides excellent feedback and really helps you dig deep and think critically throughout the application process. As a younger applicant and coming from an overrepresented background, I knew I needed to distinguish myself from the rest of the qualified applicant pool if I wanted to get a coveted spot at any of the M7 schools. Safe to say, Heidi was great at providing excellent guidance in helping me craft a story that would help me stand out. Heidi is very responsive and her turnaround was very prompt – something I really valued as I was applying on a tight timeline. I can honestly say she was critical ...

  • Adds no value
    3 years ago
    I worked with Heidi during the 2018 Round 1 and 2 admissions cycles and came away with very little to show for both the large time and money investment. While Heidi can seem nice and encouraging, she poorly managed my expectations as a client and at times seemed to put little effort into reviewing my materials. After applying this past year, I was actually able to gain an acceptance but it was not with any of the materials I created with Heidi. I now believe that the consulting services from her and MBAMission added no value and I was scammed.

    Waiting to start my next two years at Kellogg, I cannot thank Heidi enough for her support and partnership. As a reapplicant, I really wanted to give my 100% effort this round and decided to use an MBA admissions consulting firm. I applied to seven schools (aggressive plan with no safety school), and got accepted to two schools and waitlisted at one. I can’t be any happier about the results. I considered six different MBA admissions consulting firms, and mbaMission stood out to me.

However, talking to Heidi drove my decision home. Heidi was easy to talk to ...

I wanted someone who knew how to work with someone who has a highly over-represented background (i.e. Asian male in finance) to be able to stand out amongst other excellent applicants. I would say that it took a lot of consideration before I decided to work alongside an MBA consultant, but I can say for sure that I am glad I did.

After speaking to several admissions consultants, I chose Heidi and I could not have made a better decision! Right from the start, Heidi was candid and encouraging. She pushed me to brainstorm essay ideas that I wouldn’t have thought of if I had just gone with the most “obvious” themes. Because of our interactions, my essays became much deeper and reflective than what I could have done on my own.

Other consultants felt I was too "high risk" to take on as a client since I had a low GMAT, GPA, and only 3 years of experience. Heidi was the first to show compassion and confidence in pulling together a great application. She was realistic in telling me which schools to target and worked with me on my essays on an hourly basis. Since I was applying to 3 schools, the hourly option was best for me. Her turnaround was quick and even ahead of schedule. The improvement from my first draft to my final drafts was incredible. Heidi was forthcoming with opinions ...

    The Beginning: Once I decided I wanted to apply to the top full-time MBA programs, I reached out to several highly-rated admissions consulting firms. After numerous conversations and profile evaluations, I chose to work with Heidi. To me, Heidi checked all the boxes and more: MBA grad (Chicago Booth), admissions committee experience (Chicago Booth), impressive background (MBB consulting), and exceptional reviews. But most importantly, during our initial phone call, I felt a strong connection with Heidi and believed she had a genuine interest in me and my goals.

Prior to working with Heidi, I had elected to work with a "budget" (but still not cheap) service that did not provide the high level of service I would have expected. While applying to full time programs a few years ago, I worked with Heidi on an entire three school package and added two additional schools via hourly services. Heidi provided good constructive criticism throughout the process. She was quick to provide responses, positive, and extremely knowledgeable. Over the course of working with Heidi, my essays evolved immensely, creating a cohesive and compelling story. Without ...

Now, I am on my way to enroll at my dream school, Chicago Booth! Yes, my decision to work with Heidi turned out to be a killer deal for me. But the problem with quoting just impressive statistics like these is that they are but a snapshot of a nearly year-long process and very often don’t exactly reveal the entire story. Heidi made me realize that success rates alone don’t define a consultant. It is the experience that counts.

Heidi was extremely prompt in responding to my emails with quick questions, as well as returning the multiple drafts of my essays.
