  • Amazing Consultant! CBS Admit!
    11 months ago
    Jessica and the entire MBA Exchange team are incredible partners to assist/support with creating the best possible MBA candidacy anyone can put forward. With her support, guidance and sage advice I was admitted to my first choice and her Alma mater Columbia Business School. Applying to business school can feel overwhelming, and I am guessing that is why most of you are here reading these reviews. Put your mind at ease and speak with Jessica! She goes above and beyond to provide not only support but encouragement as you work together through the arduous process of applying to business school. She communicates very well with direct candid feedback that added considerable depth to my applications, well beyond what I thought was even possible. Through regular ...

  • Admitted to HBS
    1 year ago
    I was lucky to work with Jessica during my business school application process. She is a true professional - extremely responsive and skilled at helping craft a story. I would recommend Jessica to someone who is looking to apply to some of the top schools. I applied only to GSB and HBS and was admitted to HBS. The HBS adcom specifically mentioned to me that he was impressed with my essay and post interview reflection.

  • CBS Admit!! Jessica Is The Greatest!!
    1 year ago
    After months of GMAT prep and tests, I finally had the score I wanted, but I felt that was all I had. I didn’t think I had the type of background that stands out to top MBA program admissions committees, and, to compound the stress, I felt overwhelmed by the entire admissions process. Luckily, I came across Jessica’s bio on Poets&Quants. I had a bit of time before applications were due, so Jessica and I started out with very high-level discussion on goals, school choice, and work/life experience – Jessica’s excitement about my story was motivation to continue, and her great ability to uncover and explore important elements of my story was fundamental to my success as an applicant. I cannot thank Jessica enough for ...

  • The best help I never thought I needed
    2 years ago
    Maybe you're like me and think you don't need a consultant. Maybe you just peruse on P&Q for the school insights. Maybe you think your application is strong enough, or you're writing is perfect, or you don't need the support. Do yourself a favor and just reach out for a quick, free chat with Jessica. You'll realize right away how wrong you were! I never thought I was a candidate that would benefit from a consultant, and always felt that my money would be better spent on something else. However, after underestimating the applications and failing to be accepted anywhere in 2017, I started to think about reaching out to find a consultant on my wavelength. I found exactly that in Jessica, who helped me apply ...

Some people might think oh ok I hired a consultant and the help is good really it was a bit overpriced..guys trust me you won't have this thought with Jessica! Everything she helped ...

  • Accepted to GSB and HBS with Jessica's help
    2 years ago
    Jessica was a fantastic consultant, I can't recommend her enough! The application process is challenging and stressful, and Jessica's advice throughout was invaluable. She provided candid and direct feedback while also acting as a constant source of support and encouragement. She has a tremendous amount of knowledge about the application process but brings a very personal touch to her work. She really takes the time to understand you as an applicant so that all advice is tailored to your goals. Jessica really went above and beyond to support me over several months of work, and with her help I was admitted to my two top choices. Thank you for everything, Jessica!

  • Constant support
    2 years ago
    Jessica is an amazing admissions consultant. Not only does she have very good ideas when reviewing essays, but she also becomes a confident with whom to share your concerns and projects. She never hesitated to ask how I was doing or whether she could be of any greater help. Her interest in my success was genuine, and I am sure that that is the case with everyone she works with. She is not just a consultant, she is part of your team. This last year has been quite a ride, but after a long deliberation I am now ready to start my MBA at a M7 school. I now consider Jessica not only as an amazing professional but as an incredibly helpful friend!

  • Accepted at my dream school with a scholarship
    2 years ago
    I started the application process for 2018 R2 late in the cycle and felt I was very underprepared. Throughout the engagement, Jessica was extremely diligent, thorough and direct in her approach. Her feedback was invaluable in helping me bringing out my best stories and building a tight narrative. I was delighted when I was accepted at my top choice (Yale SOM) with a merit scholarship. Working with Jessica was hands down the best decision I made in this successful journey and I strongly recommend her to all applicants who are looking for a brilliant, no-nonsense consultant.

  • Rockstar Consultant
    2 years ago
    Jessica went above and beyond to support me throughout my application journey. From helping me create a list of target schools (and supporting me every time I changed my mind) to helping me craft my story, she was there 100%. I was a bit of an emotional wreck from time to time, but she still had my back. To anyone wondering whether an admissions consultant is right for you - don't hesitate and partner with Jessica. Even for the most qualified of applicants the process takes its toll, and having a strong support system can be immensely helpful. Jessica, thank you for all your help throughout these many months! I'm Haas-bound!

  • She made applying to business school as easy as possible
    2 years ago
    Applying to business school is difficult and stressful. You invest a ton of time for an uncertain outcome. Enter Jessica. Jessica made applying to business school as simple as possible. She laid out a series of steps and a timeline and ensured I followed it, even when work and life got busy. She was very attentive in reviewing my drafts and direct (but encouraging) with her feedback. I heard today that I was admitted to Tuck, and I would not have been able to do it without her.
