Jeremy Shinewald, Founder

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.

  • As Good As It Gets!
    1 year 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!
    1 year 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.

    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.
    2 years ago
    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 ...

  • World class, best in class
    2 years 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
    2 years 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 ...
