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 Good Story + A below average Gmat + Jeremy Shinewald = Full ride Kellogg admit
    5 months 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!
    5 months 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!
    5 months 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!
    5 months 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 ...

  • Confidence Built & Dream Columbia EMBA Acceptance Received!
    5 months ago
    I am originally from India and came to the US through an employment opportunity. I always aspired to go to a top business school but had no idea if this was a possibility. When I was ready to apply to Columbia Business School, I knew that I needed somebody to guide me through my application process. Somebody who not only really got me and could help guide me to tell my story in the best possible way, but also someone who would take an interest in me personally and help me through a process that I didn’t know much about and was daunting at times. Through my remarkable tutor, Whitney Garner, at Manhattan GMAT, I heard about mbaMission and she suggested that I sign up with ...

  • Jeremy Was A Huge Help With Interview Prep!
    6 months ago
    Profile: Male, 730 GMAT, Top-40 Undergrad College Accepted: Stanford I worked with another mbaMission consultant for most of the application process (Liza Weale—she was absolutely amazing!), but in order to get an additional perspective going into my Stanford interview, she connected me with Jeremy. Jeremy went above and beyond the call of duty helping me prep for this interview. Not only did he make time to do a mock with me while he was on a family vacation, but he also offered to talk with me a second time the night before the interview to make sure I felt fully prepped going into it. He was straight up with me, offering both encouragement/praise and opportunities to get better (with suggestions of little tweaks to come off stronger). He ...

  • A Great Story Weaver Putting Pieces Together For An Eye-Catching Story!
    6 months ago
    I jumped in the MBA application journey pretty late in the cycle with not much time to do a deep self-reflection and was initially left clueless in terms of coming up with stories that are uniquely personal and interesting. Then I met Jeremy, who carried me through the brainstorming process, took seemingly unrelated pieces of anecdotes, and weaved them into coherent narratives that would have allowed me to be a stand-out candidate. Jeremy was also very patient, enduring many rounds of drafting my essay responses with a goal of making sure that my stories have enough substance. Also extremely knowledgeable in details of each MBA program. No doubt Jeremy has been highly successful in MBA admissions consulting business for so many years and I would ...

  • Very Skilled Consultant, Even Better Person!
    6 months ago
    When I initially booked my free consultation with Jeremy, I very much expected him to sell me on the benefits of choosing mbaMission, and why I needed to be a client as soon as possible. That was not the case in the slightest. Instead, I received very direct, sincere career advice that involved convincing me why I don't need the services offered by mbaMission at the moment, and that I should just be focusing on being my best professional and community member. When I needed more advice a few months later, Jeremy took the time to book another free consultation with me, which I greatly appreciated. I cannot say enough about how highly I recommend Jeremy to anyone looking for a genuine mentor. He exemplifies ...

  • Worth Every Penny!!!
    7 months ago
    I was introduced to Jeremy while I was in law school and contemplating a JD/MBA (I had worked in finance for several years before going back to school). We met on several occasions and I worked with him formally as my consultant and mentor. We discussed during several meetings whether going to business school was the right decision for my path as an entrepreneur. Jeremy was balanced, objective and extremely informed on not only the admissions process but also on the schools themselves, costs and benefits, overall experience and ultimately the value he thought it would provide. Jeremy helped me decide that it was not in my best interest to pursue the MBA as my age, experience and life circumstances would afford me my ...

  • Paid For Itself Many Times Over!
    7 months ago
    In Jeremy, I found a consultant who was deeply committed to my MBA ambitions. While he was impactful in all aspects of my application and ensured that my essays stood out and resume was attention-grabbing, he really made my investment worthwhile when he encouraged me to approach the HR team and ask for funding for my MBA studies. My firm had never sponsored anyone before, but with Jeremy's guidance, I managed this process and my firm decided to pay for my studies in full. This actually became a difference maker in my application, because I was able to stand out in the application process as my firm's first-ever sponsored applicant. I was admitted to my top-choice among MBA programs and returned to my firm to ...
