  • Great MBA Consulting Experience
    5 years ago
    Results: Admitted to Booth ($), Stern ($), Kellogg, LBS, Oxford Said in Round 2. Will be attending Booth! I reached out to Accepted and Karin after rejected by Wharton, Yale, Sloan, and CBS in Round 1. Karin has been insightful, attentive, and responsive. She offered tons of useful guidance and help regarding my essays as well as interview preps. Thank you, Karin, for all that you have been doing. You are amazing!

  • Personalized Support

    I had the pleasure of working with Karin at Accepted. She helped me clarify my story and present myself in a one-page resume (which seemed daunting at first to condense one's life down to a one-pager). She helped me see things that were unique to me and encouraged me to "own" all of that uniqueness. I sincerely appreciated her help and support through the process. She made herself available and was always kind, professional and caring.

  • Awesome Pedadogy

    Working with Dr.Ash was a pleasure. I had hourly session with Dr. Karin Ash. She has a deep knowledge of the whole process and had really helped in understanding pitfalls in my essay. I did get several admits in b-schools this year but unfortunately my plans for MBA has changed as my goals have drastically changed. I will be doing MBA 2-3 years from now. In the time being will work towards my goals and see how my idea pans out. In future I will surely use accepted services to get me through the hurdle. Kudos to accepted.

  • Excellent guidance

    I was looking to work with a consultant who would guide me objectively and with transparency and Karin is the perfect consultant for that. Her detail-oriented, unbiased, and thoughtful opinions helped me fine tune and polish my essays and also, helped me figure out how best to communicate who I am to the admissions committee. I absolutely recommend her!
