Consultant Bio

Prior to founding mbaMission, Jeremy Shinewald was the sole speechwriter for the Ambassador of Israel to the United States, for whom he wrote more than 70 policy addresses. As his speeches were being published in the Washington Post, Washington Times and other major international media outlets, Jeremy was also laying the foundation for mbaMission, helping a small number of applicants gain acceptance to top-tier MBA programs each year. Jeremy was admitted to several top domestic and international MBA programs himself and ultimately became one of the youngest members of his class at the University of Virginia’s Darden School of Business, where he was an admissions interviewer, wrote a Business Ethics case and a Small Business Acquisitions case and was chosen by his peers to be Class Graduation Speaker.

After graduation, Jeremy formally established mbaMission and has subsequently provided admissions consulting services to applicants from the United States and more than 30 other countries on six continents. Jeremy is a past member of the Board of Directors of the Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants (AIGAC), an organization committed to upholding the highest standards of ethical practices in MBA advisory services, and was the co-chair of the 2009 AIGAC Conference at Columbia Business School.

  • A Great Story Weaver Putting Pieces Together For An Eye-Catching Story!
    1 week ago
    I jumped in the MBA application journey pretty late in the cycle with not much time to do a deep self-reflection and was initially left clueless in terms of coming up with stories that are uniquely personal and interesting. Then I met Jeremy, who carried me through the brainstorming process, took seemingly unrelated pieces of anecdotes, and weaved them into coherent narratives that would have allowed me to be a stand-out candidate. Jeremy was also very patient, enduring many rounds of drafting my essay responses with a goal of making sure that my stories have enough substance. Also extremely knowledgeable in details of each MBA program. No doubt Jeremy has been highly successful in MBA admissions consulting business for so many years and I would ...

  • Very Skilled Consultant, Even Better Person!
    2 weeks ago
    When I initially booked my free consultation with Jeremy, I very much expected him to sell me on the benefits of choosing mbaMission, and why I needed to be a client as soon as possible. That was not the case in the slightest. Instead, I received very direct, sincere career advice that involved convincing me why I don't need the services offered by mbaMission at the moment, and that I should just be focusing on being my best professional and community member. When I needed more advice a few months later, Jeremy took the time to book another free consultation with me, which I greatly appreciated. I cannot say enough about how highly I recommend Jeremy to anyone looking for a genuine mentor. He exemplifies ...

  • Worth Every Penny!!!
    2 weeks ago
    I was introduced to Jeremy while I was in law school and contemplating a JD/MBA (I had worked in finance for several years before going back to school). We met on several occasions and I worked with him formally as my consultant and mentor. We discussed during several meetings whether going to business school was the right decision for my path as an entrepreneur. Jeremy was balanced, objective and extremely informed on not only the admissions process but also on the schools themselves, costs and benefits, overall experience and ultimately the value he thought it would provide. Jeremy helped me decide that it was not in my best interest to pursue the MBA as my age, experience and life circumstances would afford me my ...

  • Paid For Itself Many Times Over!
    3 weeks ago
    In Jeremy, I found a consultant who was deeply committed to my MBA ambitions. While he was impactful in all aspects of my application and ensured that my essays stood out and resume was attention-grabbing, he really made my investment worthwhile when he encouraged me to approach the HR team and ask for funding for my MBA studies. My firm had never sponsored anyone before, but with Jeremy's guidance, I managed this process and my firm decided to pay for my studies in full. This actually became a difference maker in my application, because I was able to stand out in the application process as my firm's first-ever sponsored applicant. I was admitted to my top-choice among MBA programs and returned to my firm to ...

    I cannot more highly recommend that for someone even slightly considering applying for an MBA, you speak with Jeremy. You will have a better sense for your true motivations after and, If you decide to apply, will have kicked off your process with the best guide you could find. I contacted Jeremy for help identifying and clarifying the key pieces of my story to articulate to my top choice school through the essay. Jeremy was so incredibly friendly, accommodating, and helpful that I sought more help on two additional applications. I do not suggest pushing up against deadlines but in my case, I had to, and Jeremy worked with me to deliver his feedback over the holidays in time for me to incorporate it. I ...

  • Incredible Mentor, Coach, & Person!
    4 weeks ago
    Jeremy was absolutely fantastic to work with! First of all, I was not an ideal candidate as I came to MBA Admissions with a 480 GMAT score but wanted to apply to top schools. A close friend had a great experience with MBA Admissions so I thought I would give them a try. Jeremy was fantastic to work with and I know I wouldn’t have gotten into Cambridge without him. He was very easy to work with, very thoughtful and genuine in his approach. It was evident that he reviewed my profile very thoroughly and remembered what I had written. He was very honest and upfront, yet also very encouraging and willing to do everything in his power to help me succeed. His writing skills ...

  • Great Consultant, Great Person
    4 weeks ago
    When I was considering applying to business school, I reached out to several consultants and got the impression from almost all of them that they would have told me whatever I wanted to hear to get me to pay for their services. Jeremy was the exception. He was the only consultant who seemed to care about not just whether I could get into a top business school but whether getting an MBA would help me achieve my professional ambitions. After counseling me for several months, Jeremy helped me realize that business school was not the right path for me, even though that meant that I wouldn't become one of his paid clients. Jeremy's willingness to act against his own self-interest to help me in my ...

  • Relationship With The Firm For Seven Years To Date
    1 month ago
    I first approached Jeremy in 2012/13 to assist with my MBA admission process. As an international applying to US school, you don’t realize how many nuances there are to process. Jeremy and the mbaMission team were instrumental in helping me make the best application possible. When there were complications on timing due to family circumstances, Jeremy was supportive in helping me revise the timelines. Finally, when it was crunch time (and I finalizing applications for seven schools), I realized how personally invested Jeremy and the mbaMission team was in my success. Jeremy worked over Christmas Eve and Christmas day to help me submit my applications on time – Amazing! The school interview process was very intimidating but Jessica and Jeremy helped prepare me to the ...

  • Patient, Thoughtful Mentor
    1 month ago
    I found mbaMission through a friend and engaged Jeremy initially because I did not even know if an MBA could be an option for me. I was an older applicant at the time and was considering all options: full time, part time, EMBA. Jeremy never pushed me to one or the other but armed me with the information to make my choice. In the end, I found an EMBA program that was a perfect fit for my career and for my family business. I appreciated that he took a lot of time with me to help me make the right decision. He was frank about what to expect from an EMBA program and even advised me about how to manage the program itself to get ...

  • Gold Standard
    1 month ago
    Bottom line: Jeremy's intuition about compelling storytelling, drive to get down to business, and clear personal attachment to my success was my secret admissions weapon this year. His focused, deliberate approach put me in as strong a position to succeed as I can have imagined. Consider him a friend, confidant, and someone I'll always be grateful to for helping me find direction and zero in on my own story as I transition careers. I connected with MBAMission in late June 2018 before submitting applications with early September deadlines. I would be in a far-off land with limited free time and intermittent ability to communicate during July and August, so was looking for direction to keep me on task. Jeremy was still able to effectively, before and ...
