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.

  • Yoda-Level Wisdom

    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!
    7 months 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
    7 months 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
    7 months 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

    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
    7 months 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!
    8 months 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

    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!
    8 months 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
    8 months 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 ...
