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.

    I recently applied to early admission MBA programs and used Jeremy's help. He was super knowledgeable, kind, helpful, and very responsive to every message I sent him. He gave me great advice, guidance, and feedback through the process of application and made it a lot easier for me. I highly recommend that you schedule a call with Jeremy and realize the magic he can do for your application and helping you refine your story. Thank you, Jeremy!

  • Jeremy's Book is World-Class!
    2 months ago
    7 years ago, I bought Jeremy's "The Complete start-to-finish MBA Admissions Guide" while visiting family at Stanford University. At the time, I was interested in pursuing a full-time MBA in the US (I'm from Belgium). Years passed, and in 2020, this interest evolved into applying for Executive MBA programs at London Business School and Cambridge University. With only eight years of work experience, I was on the young side of the applicants' pool (the average is 12-14 years). The grades of my undergraduate and postgraduate degrees weren't excellent either. Finally, I had changed careers a few years ago, so wasn't as senior as most applicants. Nevertheless, I thought I'd give it a try and would learn from the experience either way. So I dusted off this ...

    3 months ago
    Jeremy is a superb consultant to have on your side - not only because of his brilliant editing and writing skills, but also because he actually cares for his clients and makes an effort to exceed expectations in any way he can. I was due to apply to five schools last year and couldn't apply to a single one due to personal issues. I asked MBA mission to extend my contract by a month and being the wonderful set of people that they are, they were happy to oblige. However, my consultant at the time had to go on an emergency sick leave and this was a bit of a bummer as I had already worked a fair bit with him and he already knew my story. Thankfully, ...

  • Best Decision I Ever Made!
    3 months ago
    When I met Jeremy over a year ago, I immediately knew his energy and inspiration was exactly what I needed to attack this application process. Jeremy helped me through multiple applications, interviews, and waitlists, and approached Version 22 of each essay with the same level of passion and commitment as he did on Day 1. Jeremy's wealth of knowledge, writing skills, and ability to tell a powerful story are unparalleled. He brings insight to every decision, no matter how big or small, every step of the way. Yet, what makes him the best (and in my opinion, the only) choice for a consultant is that he truly connects with each applicant he works with and is committed to their success. He is more than a ...

  • Jeremy Makes the MBA Admission Process Fun & Manageable
    5 months ago
    Jeremy knows exactly how to transform a candidate’s character traits/experiences/life story and articulate them in a way that is easily (and attractively) digestible for admissions offices. The MBA application process is a very expensive “black box” between tutors, consultants, applications, school visits, online programs, etc. The scariest part of which is that you never truly know that you are on the best possible path towards admissions at your target program. Jeremy takes the “black box” and lights it up for you. He is the most experienced person I have come across during my MBA application process by FAR, he knows the ins and outs of every school, is one of the best communicators that I have ever encountered and is very easy to work with. These skills ...

    My time with Jeremy unofficially began almost two years ago. I was considering applying to business school, and we connected for an initial conversation. Although I didn't end up applying that year, I recall being struck by his generosity of both time and energy, as he expressed his willingness to work with me on brainstorming my own life goals to determine whether business school was the right next step for me. Fast forward 18 months, and Jeremy and I began working on b-school applications. From the initial brainstorming session in September, up until this moment as I write this review on the first day of May, Jeremy has been an unwavering ally in the face of a challenging process and a particularly challenging application season.

  • Highly Recommended; Flexible & Thorough
    5 months ago
    Jeremy's expertise as a consultant, diligence as a writer/editor, and empathy as a friend/colleague are unmatched. Jeremy and I started working together over a year ago. Not only did his coaching and mentoring help result in my acceptance to my top choices, but it also helped me to understand my own motivations and perspective. Honestly, I underestimated the impact of the latter on my ability to derive purpose from my own experiences. I would strongly recommend Jeremy and his team to anyone looking to maximize the value of their degree before and after the admissions process.

    To start - Jeremey is incredibly knowledgeable about the entire MBA landscape and is the main reason I was accepted to my top school early action. For anyone that is serious about getting their MBA, they should engage Jeremey ASAP. Our engagement felt more like a peer/mentor helping me navigate a complex process. This is incredibly valuable when times are stressful, and you need suggestions on how best to proceed. I know we will remain in touch for many years. Jeremy is super easy to work with and was always available to answer any questions – big or small. From the very beginning, he spent significant time understanding what makes me who I am today.

    About one month before the application deadline, I found myself with a below-average GMAT, an unopened application, and a lot of questions about whether it was worth making a run for it. I spoke with a number of companies and consultants but was by far the most impressed with mbaMission. I had many friends that had worked with other companies and everyone seemed to have the most trust in and best results from the mbaMission process. As I thought about consultants, Jeremy came the most highly recommended. Jeremy is the best in the industry and my biggest concern was whether or not he’d be able to squeeze me in. His experience, his methods, and his approach are second to none. The thing about Jeremy is ...

    After attending one of Jeremy's free online events, I booked in a free consultation with him. One of the best decisions I've ever made. He was insightful, encouraging and most important of all honest. He gave me advice regarding strengthening my profile and tips on how to go into an interview well prepared. I've read his book on admissions at least twice and it has been an extremely reliable resource.

    Jeremy's wealth of experience in the MBA consulting world is unparalleled. There was no question left unanswered, and each answer was highly informative and valuable. Jeremy understands how the system really works and is unafraid to tell it like it is, a crucial quality in a successful MBA consultant. While Jeremy is in high demand and evidently a busy person, he always made himself extremely accessible and responsive to my needs. In addition, Jeremy went out of his way to help me with professional career advice beyond simply with MBA guidance. This isn't someone who has sat solely in academic circles his entire life. Rather, Jeremy was the speechwriter for one of the most consequential government officials in modern history. In essence, Jeremy "gets it" ...

    I spoke to several consultants asking whether they believe they could get me to Stanford. Jeremy answered that he did believe but would not bet his house on that. As 32 years old European working in asset management with poor GPA (though three diplomas), 760 GMAT, and no extracurriculars I could not expect any honest answer to be more optimistic. I personally thought my chances were nonexistent but wanted to try anyway not to regret in the future if the situation in my country further deteriorates. Reading people’s thoughts about application processes I expected to spend hours writing countless drafts only to discard them and start over. Thanks to structure Jeremy imposed that was not the case. Brainstorming document I wrote at the beginning served as ...

    Jeremy is incredibly in-tune with the happenings of the MBA community and seeks to provide substantive feedback in a way that creates actionable plans to improve your application. His understanding of the schools' values goes a long way when determining which aspects of yourself to highlight in an application. I applied for the class of 2022 and have been waitlisted at Kellogg. I sincerely believe that had I leaned on Jeremy's insight and feedback sooner in the process, I may not be in MBA-limbo at the moment. That said, I had a consultation with Jeremy regarding creating an actionable waitlist plan, all in 30 minutes! Efficient and very direct would be two words I use to describe his style.

    2 years 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
    2 years 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 ...

  • Extremely Knowledgeable!
    2 years ago
    I have used Jeremy's services myself and have recommended him to my GMAT students. Jeremy used his experience and insight to help me craft my story (not create an inauthentic story) that would best resonate with my target school. He asks relevant and helpful questions that assisted me in the creation of my application. He has seemingly unlimited interest and enthusiasm about his work, which is helping you tell your message to get into school. The students that I have referred to Jeremy only have positive things to say about him. It's at the very least worth a free consultation with him!

  • Super Satisfying Interaction
    2 years ago
    These guys helped me with my application to grad school at Columbia. It was a roll-up-your-sleeves, get in the weeds kind of approach and was truly impactful in my ability to complete the assignments and get accepted. Rather than doing the work for me, they enabled me to think deeply about my journey, and bring my best self to the writing, editing and submission process. Their coaching was really invaluable and I'd recommend it wholeheartedly.

  • mbaMission Exceeds Expectations!
    2 years ago
    I applied to MBA programs in 2008, without the assistance of Jeremy and mbaMission, and did not even get interviews at any of my target schools. I applied again in 2009, and what a world of difference! I was admitted to two of the three schools to which I applied. Jeremy and mbaMission are clearly the experts in MBA admissions consulting, and they were invaluable at every stage of the process. He and mbaMission are like having an expert caddie with you on the golf course. They know the admissions landscape, all the school processes, the tricks and nuances and how to make sure an applicant presents him or herself as well as possible in applications and interviews. Additionally, Jeremy was always very responsive and ...

  • Story Master
    2 years ago
    A few years ago, I chose another consultant over mbaMission and didn't get anywhere. Last year, by overwhelming recommendation, I decided to work with Jeremy on my EMBA application. At the time, I had my doubts because being a business owner myself, I wasn't sure if two Type A personality working together was a good idea. Those doubts quickly faded away when the work started. J always scheduled calls with me that accommodated my ever changing time zone and during each call, he not only listened but also extracted the essence of my stories which helped the application writing process tremendously. I'm full of stories but I am possibly the worst person alive at telling my own stories. After countless calls and email exchanges, J ...

I would strongly advise you work with Jeremy.

  • Jeremy Shinewald
    2 years ago
    I give my highest possible recommendation to Jeremy Shinewald of mbaMission. Jeremy has deep, well-researched insights on every business school I had expressed interest in exploring. His institutional knowledge of every program served as an invaluable sounding-board as I honed my list of schools that I applied to. Jeremy is also undoubtedly a genius marketer. After performing his procedural forensic of my work and personal experiences, he helped identify my meaningful experiences that were particularly important to highlight in my applications. He not only enabled me to craft my personal story in well-thought-out manner, but he also helped me create a more profound and intellectually stimulating essay. His experience as a senior speech writer for politicians was also a tremendous benefit, as he helped me ...

  • It Doesn’t Get Better Than Jeremy!
    2 years ago
    Jeremy Shinewald is an absolute game changer for anyone aspiring to get an MBA from a top school. Jeremy's time is split between his many clients and running (in my opinion) the best admissions consultation company out there. But if no one had told me that, I would have thought I was his only responsibility. His attention to detail is unlike anything I’ve seen, and he will cut to the core of what makes you an interesting person and a strong candidate. He will help you sort through your experiences, and will not only help you identify the key points that will make you stand out to the admissions committee, he will help you create an application that does them justice. Beyond that, he will ...

  • Incredibly Insightful Experience (Ding Review)
    2 years ago
    After not getting into my top schools, I worked with Jeremy on a 'ding review' where he looked over my application and walked me through how I could've improved it. Having worked with other consultants before, I found this experience to be by far the most insightful conversation I've had in regards to my application. I'm left kicking myself at not having used Jeremy before but I will certainly do so as I continue to pursue an MBA path. What sets Jeremy apart is his knack for finding the human element behind the application and painting a picture so that human element shines its brightest.

    mbaMission was incredibly helpful in guiding me through the MBA application. Education in an investment and mbaMission was part of that investment; it was well worth it.

  • Forever Grateful For Jeremy!!

    I cannot even begin to express my gratitude for Jeremy and the whole mbaMission team. Jeremy was so EXTREMELY helpful in guiding me through my graduate school application process and was so reassuring that I would hit my deadlines. He instilled confidence in my writing ability and helped me produce my strongest work while also being my biggest supporter. I truly could not have applied without his expertise, insight and judgment. Jeremy not only helped me narrate my personal story and experiences, but also portray my strengths and skillset. He had incredible insight and guidance when structuring my thoughts in the most concise, creative, professional and affluent manner. Additionally, he was especially responsive and accommodating to my schedule and learning needs. Jeremy is a genuine, ...

  • As Good As It Gets!
    2 years ago
    I have nothing but the best to say about my experience working with Jeremy. Even when my core consultant was John Sisk (also at mbaMission), Jeremy offered his time and expertise generously over a period of several months across application rounds. His acumen around the attitudes and specifications of each and every MBA program is unmatched, and every piece of advice he gives is delivered candidly and tactfully. And even when I lived far away, he made himself available via phone flexibly and on short notice. If you’re looking for a consultant who knows the programs inside and out, and one who shows 110% genuine care about you as both an MBA candidate and as a person, Jeremy is the guy for you. Thanks Jeremy!

  • Couldn't have done it without Jeremy!
    2 years ago
    I came across Jeremy after speaking to numerous consultants, and Jeremy stood out as he truly cared and caught up with me again after touching base. What Jeremy offers is a very direct and clear approach to the whole MBA game, that is helping you to clearly articulate your goals and aspirations. Without sugarcoating, Jeremy offered very candid assessment and advice. Clearly fighting for my cause, Jeremy helped me "stand straight" and differentiated from the rest of the crowd. Thanks to Jeremy, I have been admitted to my dream M7 school and I could not have done it without Jeremy.

  • THE BEST CONSULTANT EVER!
    2 years ago
    I was referred to Jeremy by my GMAT tutor as well as by multiple friends and relatives who had great success with Jeremy and were admitted to T5 MBA programs. The common theme when speaking to every single referral was that Jeremy is a magician and each individual credited Jeremy's inquisitiveness, work ethic, honesty, and patience as a major reason why they were admitted to their respective programs. I must admit that hearing those recommendations set the bar high, but I was not disappointed! Jeremy was extremely understanding and hit the ground running since we only had 4 weeks before the application deadline. Jeremy was able to help me tell my story in a way that not only got me admitted to my top choice, ...

  • Jeremy Leads by Example. Founder in Title, Producer in Reality
    2 years ago
    A Lifetime of Difference: As Jeremy Shinewald's first client, I now have many years to look back on his impact on me. I applied to several schools on my own, some of which were unranked, and failed to get in. I really just did not have the proper guidance to apply appropriately. When I brought my applications to Jeremy, he pointed out missed opportunities in various places. I was showing a narrow view of who I was and my skill set. Upon discussing it with Jeremy, I changed my approach and started over with him. I applied to only one school with Jeremy and he worked with me through a long waitlist process. In the end, I was the last person admitted to Chicago GSB that ...

  • A man with many talents...
    2 years ago
    I was introduced to Jeremy through an acquaintance who used him for MBA applications. My daughter needed assistance with her college application essays and I asked if Jeremy would work with her. He was upfront in stating that he was an MBA admissions expert and that college application essays were not his area of specialization. However, my daughter was immediately comfortable working with Jeremy and asked if he would provide advice to her. Jeremy agreed to take this and was a valuable resource for her as well as a source of confidence. The experience of working with Jeremy was very positive for her and the outcome was successful.

  • The real HBS guru
    2 years ago
    I applied to HBS twice. The first time I didn't use Jeremy and the second time I did. Needless to say, Jeremy was the key difference in my second application. Jeremy was very focused on letting the real me shine through my application. He did not focus on perfecting my story but rather a true genuine telling of who I am and what motivates me. Jeremy was extremely approachable. I was comfortable asking him absolutely any question. His answers were to the point and clearly from a perspective of experience. In my first application, I utilized the services of the HBS guru. He was difficult to work with and ultimately pushed me to write an application that in no way reflected my character. As mentioned, ...

  • Best. Consultant. Ever.

    I was in the process of making a difficult decision: I had practiced law for 6 years but knew this wasn't my path. I wanted to refocus my career and basically start fresh, but I didn't really know how to start the journey and in which direction I should go. Thankfully a friend pointed me to Jeremy Shinewald who was my guide on this journey. He counseled me on which schools I should be applying to. He helped me craft my story and he gave me the advice and direction I needed. I found his rates competitive with other consultants, but more importantly I felt that I was getting good value. Here was an expert who was available for me, fought for me and brought ...

  • Could not have done it without Jeremy.
    2 years 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 ...

    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 ...

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 ...

    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 years 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 ...
