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 would strongly advise you work with Jeremy.

  • Jeremy Shinewald
    10 months 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!
    10 months 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)
    11 months 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!!
    11 months ago
    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!
    11 months 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!
    11 months 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!
    1 year 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, ...
