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 National Treasure
    3 months ago
    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" ...

  • Best MBA Related Decision
    3 months ago
    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 ...

  • Wish I'd Engaged mbaMission Sooner!
    4 months ago
    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. I appreciate the candor and ability ...

  • Jeremy Is Part Of My American Dream!
    4 months ago
    My application journey was an emotional two-year roller coaster, and if it wasn’t for Jeremy’s guidance and support, it would have been impossible for me to achieve my goal. Today I’m proudly holding an MBA admission form Columbia Business School. There were many times that I completely lost my hope, but like a compassionate family member, Jeremy truly believed in me and helped me get back on my feet again. He expended his time and energy even way beyond his professional obligations to me. Indeed, his invaluable professionalism and unsparing support have made me indebted to him for the rest of my life. I will always keep my contact with him and cherish the memory of working with him. I moved to the USA from ...

  • A Great Guide Through the Process
    4 months ago
    Profile: 770 GMAT, 3.7 GPA, Finance background, HBS admit Jeremy supported me with my HBS and GSB applications. We were on a relatively tight timeline (~2.5 months to complete both applications and GMAT) and had a lot of work to do to shape my application. Jeremy's wisdom and expertise were critical in helping me shape a cohesive, differentiated candidacy. Having seen dozens of applications over the years, he was a great person to partner with as I was crafting my story. He provides direct and constructive feedback - a necessity during the essay writing process - and was meticulous in making sure that every part of my application played an impactful role in promoting my candidacy. He was easy to work with, responsive, and provided me with ...

  • The Best Guide I Could've Hoped For!
    4 months ago
    I worked with Jeremy on five business school applications. Throughout the process, he was an incredibly valuable mentor and friend to have on my side. He truly exemplifies what it means to really care about someone's success. Even though I had a non-traditional international background, Jeremy was quick to help me identify my key profile strengths, which allowed me to tell my story in the best way possible. After submitting my applications, Jeremy and I held several mock interview sessions, which undoubtedly helped me overcome my nerves and allowed me to communicate my goals and objectives in a clear and confident way. After being accepted to four of the five schools I applied to, Jeremy was the first to congratulate me and offer his help on ...

  • A Good Story + A below average Gmat + Jeremy Shinewald = Full ride Kellogg admit
    1 year ago
    My experience with Jeremy was beyond excellent, superb. I first got in touch with Jeremy when a close friend of mine recommended his services, after a half an hour call I was sure he would create the most value for myself and my story, but after sighting his cost I won’t lie I was doubtful. Either way, having a below average Gmat, I convinced myself that I needed the best consultant in the market. A couple of consultants had told me “I mean I consider myself pretty good but Jeremy is Jeremy, he practically created the process” – I can assure you, he is the BEST. I took the risk and selected Jeremy! I applied to 2 top MBA programs in the US, one top MBA ...

  • Great Guide Through the Process!
    1 year ago
    I worked with Jeremy on my HBS and GSB applications. Throughout the process, he was an incredibly valuable mentor to have on my side. With all the experience he has worked with clients, Jeremy knows how to pull all of the pieces together. He will help you find connections between your past experiences and interests that you may not have seen and work with you to craft a compelling, yet authentic, narrative around it. As a candidate from a more over-represented background who was struggling at the beginning of the essay brainstorming process, Jeremy’s insights were much appreciated. Further, after I received an interview invitation, Jeremy went above and beyond to make sure I was well-prepared. We discussed a game plan for preparation and frameworks ...

  • Like Working With A Great Friend!
    1 year ago
    I worked with Jeremy for my HBS and Stanford applications. Jeremy is attentive, caring, and very supportive throughout the application process. More importantly, working with Jeremy feels like you're working with a great friend who is genuinely invested in your success. In addition, Jeremy was always on time with his feedback and made an effort to ensure that he is available during crunch time. I highly recommend Jeremy and would love to work with him again.

  • Awesome Experience With mbaMission!
    1 year ago
    I first met Jeremy during my free 30-minute consultant with mbaMission. I was immediately impressed by Jeremy's ability to quickly evaluate my candidacy and provide some critical pieces of feedback and advice as I navigated the application process, particularly where I stood with test scores and how to network with the AdComs. When I decided I wanted to work with a consultant for my Round 2 applications, I picked mbaMission given the positive experience I had with Jeremy. Based on his knowledge of my candidacy, Jeremy recommended several consultants whom he thought would be a great fit, and my experience with my consultant was fantastic! I appreciated how Jeremy continued to support me throughout the application process. Even after being accepted, Jeremy was quick ...
