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.

P&Q Consultant Reviews

  • Could not have done it without Jeremy.
    1 month ago
    I decided to apply to business school very "late in the game" mid-last summer, with no GMAT score and little direction on how to structure myself as an applicant...but I knew I only wanted to go to a top school. Come in Jeremy Shinewald, who I have since dubbed "half friend, half my MBA consultant" after sticking with me over the past 8 months. Considering I only finished my GMAT in December and applications were due January 3rd; Jeremy was part of the process through the ups and downs of not hitting the GMAT score we needed, to re-editing application essays (50+ times as the application story evolved) to finally being admitted to my top pick, Wharton. Not only would I not ...

  • World class, best in class
    2 months ago
    I had the unique opportunity to work closely with Jeremy on my entire application, and his ability to pay attention to detail while also focusing on the big picture fabric of my application and its message was incredible. But beyond his skillset and abilities, what struck me most from working with Jeremy is just how much he truly, genuinely cared about how my application came together and how important it was for him that my story was conveyed in the most appropriate, and honest way possible. Jeremy truly cares. He is dedicated well beyond his rates and responsibilities to see that each and every client feels like he or she has delivered his or her best foot forward - and in today's world, that is ...

  • Absolute Best-in-Class MBA Consultant
    3 months ago
    If you are looking for the absolute best MBA consultant out there, do not look further than Jeremy. From the initial draft, to interview prep, to decision day my experience working with Jeremy was an absolute pleasure and completely seamless. From the “kick-off” call, you can quickly distinguish the knowledge Jeremy has in all things MBA, the ample experience and school insight that he’ll use to help you get wherever it is you want to go and more importantly the willingness to understand what makes you unique as an MBA applicant. You’ll rapidly see that the extra dollars you are spending to work with Jeremy are worth it given his extraordinary attention to detail, his dedication to making you feel like his only client and ...

  • Best consultant I could have asked for
    3 months ago
    I used Jeremy to apply to 5 programs and was extremely happy with the service i received throughout the entire process. Beyond Jeremy's professionalism, what impressed me most was his responsiveness and his ability to guide me throughout my essay writing and help me best convey my personality despite not having met me in person even once. Jeremy took the time to understand "my story" and by the end of the process, I truly felt like Jeremy had been a friend of mine for years. It felt like Jeremy was just as invested as I was which made the process that much easier. Jeremy helped me create a timeline in which I could effectively manage my time and submit my applications to each school, which ...

  • Jeremy was my secret weapon for getting admitted to Harvard and Stanford
    3 months ago
    Jeremy is an outstanding consultant. He's thoughtful, razor-sharp, and most of all, honest. I'm a re-applicant. I applied for 2017 intake to three top business schools, and got no interviews. One year later, with Jeremy's continued guidance, I applied to four top business schools and was admitted to three, including Harvard and Stanford. If this wasn't enough, I also received significant five-figure fellowship offers from both HBS and the GSB, which greatly exceeded my investment with mbaMission. Now that's ROI. Jeremy is not cheap; yet he's still under priced. I wholehearted recommend Jeremy for candidates who want a thought-partner throughout the application, and need an edge to get into the top schools. He helped at every step: from our 20+ page brainstorming document, through to ...
