Kristen L.


MBA Prep School

United States

Consultant Bio

Kristen began developing her expertise in graduate management admissions in 2011 when she joined the Admissions team at the MIT Sloan School of Management, but her passion for education began long before that.

As an elementary education and English double major at Boston College, she learned the importance of strong communication skills and storytelling in order to reach a diverse group of learners.

She began her professional career at a publishing start-up and discovered an interest in recruiting, interviewing, and training new interns and full-time hires. After earning her MS in Leadership and Human Resources Management from Northeastern University, she moved onto MIT Sloan in order to pursue her passion for recruiting and evaluation.

During Kristen’s eight-year career at MIT Sloan, she evaluated hundreds of applicants to the full-time MBA, Master of Finance, Leaders for Global Operations, and Master of Business Analytics programs. She has experience giving Admissions presentations worldwide, reading applications, conducting interviews, and managing the waitlist. Kristen ultimately oversaw the evaluation process for all programs, leading the Admissions Committee and training readers and interviewers on Sloan’s evaluation criteria. She was also a member of the team that rolled out Sloan’s new MBA Early Admission Offering.

Kristen is passionate about demystifying the application process for her clients and preventing them from making costly mistakes that jeopardize their candidacy. She enjoys helping applicants craft their unique story and show their authentic selves to the Admissions Committee. She has helped candidates gain admission to various business-focused degree programs at NYU, Yale, Cornell, Duke, and London Business School, among others.

Kristen is also a devoted mom to two little boys and enjoys traveling and attending BC football games with her family.

  • Magic Turnaround & Dream Saver
    3 months ago
    When I started to prepare my MBA application, I am very confident that I can show my love for dream school(CBS), so I spent over three months to DIY, and when I finally received a cold rejection letter, I was heart-broken and discouraged. I learned my lesson here, no matter how confident you are, to get into a dream school, you need more than passion, hard work, and score. Knowing what you don't know and get as much help as you can is also important. When I sent my old application file to Kristen, she instantly noticed many mistakes I made. (I really wish I could know when I prepared my No1 dream school application). Kristen encouraged me to keep trying because my application content is ...
