Vantage Point MBA Admissions Consulting

Consultant Bio

I have been coaching MBA admissions clients with Vantage Point MBA since 2016. With my clients, I work every angle of their background and experiences to best position and differentiate them. I am an expert in demonstrating patterns of success, in communicating future achievement potential, and in working with non-traditional clients.

I obtained my MBA from The Wharton School at The University of Pennsylvania, and my B.S. in Finance and Economics from the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business. At Wharton, I concentrated in Management and Real Estate, and served as the President of the MBA’s Real Estate Club. I bring insights into the financial world, with professional experience in private equity, banking, asset management, and real estate.

Outside of work, I enjoy long runs and hikes with my Labrador Retriever, skiing during the winter season, and playing tourist in my own city (Washington, DC).

  • Highly Recommended!

    "I had a great overall experience working with Katherine Canning at Vantage Point, and I highly recommend her MBA admissions consulting services. I utilized the “Hourly Services” option, which was ideal as it provided me the flexibility to focus on specific components of the application process that I was most interested in seeking advice on. Throughout our interactions, I was very impressed by her candid and constructive feedback, her timely responses to my questions, and her genuine interest in helping me to identify and highlight the strongest aspects of background. Additionally, I greatly appreciated that she was very cognizant of the application deadlines and always seemed to ensure that the hours that I was purchasing were being used efficiently, so that I could get significant ...Read the full review.

    "I worked with Katherine over a period of four months to submit five applications (HBS, Wharton, Booth, Kellogg, NYU). I used a comprehensive package for one (Wharton) and hourly services for the rest. She was absolutely instrumental in my successful admission to three out of the five (Booth, Kellogg, NYU). Her approach is logical, straightforward, organized, and direct, which is exactly what I needed. I came to her after spending 5 months trying to figure out my “story” on my own, and she helped me choose the right thing after just one hour-long session together. (Seriously, she’s amazing!) Working with her, I had complete confidence that every detail of my application would be addressed on time. She does a great job editing essays without actually ...Read the full review.

    "Vantage Point has a very strong comprehensive school package to help craft your story and think through an individual's strategic positioning (and how that should vary from school to school). Being a bit late in the GMAT and application process and wanting to submit applications in R1, Katherine was very supportive in proactively identifying areas that I could knock off early while preparing to take the GMAT (ordering transcripts, brainstorming for essays, etc.). Katherine was incredibly helpful throughout the entire application process and, coming from a similar work background, was able to help identify my truly differentiating experiences. Katherine applied the perfect balance of pressure as well to make sure I was appropriately prepared to meet deadlines, and had thought through anything and everything for ...Read the full review.
