Consultant Bio

Which application stands out in a cast of thousands? As dean and director of admissions, financial aid and student services at some of America’s top undergraduate and MBA programs, I have had the pleasure of finding that gem at midnight after reviewing 50 applications and conducting 10 interviews in a given day. The big question at 12:00 am: do I go home or stay at the office and find a stellar applicant?

I reviewed over 70,000 applications, interviewed over 2500 candidates and trained nearly 700 admissions directors and alumni volunteers to select outstanding candidates for admission. I know what admissions directors are looking for to build a great class. I was on the other side of the table for 18 years travelling to over 40 countries guiding and counseling prospective students on admission and scholarship.

  • Guardian Angel
    2 days ago
    No words can describe how perfect Natalie was throughout the process. She starts off by listening to your story all the way from your childhood to where you are now. She really wants to get to know you before she helps you with curating your story. In the process, she will also pool her resources, notably her husband, who is extremely knowledgeable and an expert on admissions, in general, to help you out. I was waitlisted in R1 at my dream school, but Natalie never gave up on me. She helped me by asking the school for feedback and continuously throughout the process to finally help me to get admitted to my dream school. She is your guardian in this whole process ...

  • Personalized Guidance Led to Acceptance at My Dream School
    1 month ago
    I worked with Natalie on general application strategy, essay writing, and preparation for the Wharton TBD. She took the time to learn my story and help me tell my story to the admissions department. Specifically, Natalie was part of the mock TBD session and provided direct and useful feedback that I used during the real thing. As a result, I will be starting at Wharton this fall!

  • Incredibly Supportive Coach + Mentor
    10 months ago
    I worked with Natalie on all parts of my application (essay brainstorming, essay editing, resume, short answers, interview prep), and she was incredibly supportive and helpful. Her methodology for brainstorming and pulling content/themes together for essays was so helpful. She was supportive and gave me the confidence to share my full self in my apps but was also honest and direct when I needed to be pushed. She builds strong personal relationships with her clients and truly cares about their success both in MBA applications but in their careers and lives going forward. I'm headed to Wharton in the fall on a merit-based scholarship, and Natalie played a huge part in helping me get here.

  • Natalie is an amazing coach!
    1 year ago
    I started working with Natalie a few months before the round 1 admissions deadline and she helped with most aspects of the application (resume, essays, interview, etc.). She gave me the confidence to hit submit and nail my interviews! She helped keep me calm as the stress of applications sometimes felt overwhelming (especially when juggling that with work). With her help, I got accepted into 3 top business schools and received a merit-based scholarship. I will be attending HBS in the Fall and I can't imagine doing this process without her help. I would recommend her to anyone applying to business school.

  • The very very best.
    2 years ago
    What can I say? I absolutely could not have survived this journey without Natalie. Her guidance throughout the whole process was second to none. I really enjoyed all of our conversations and I could not be more appreciative of her continuing support. In the end, it all worked out better than I could have imagined. I got admitted to my number one choice of USC and it was largely thanks to Natalie. She is, by miles, the very best out there. Would recommend her to any/everyone I know who is looking to apply.

  • Interview Coaching w/ Natalie
    3 years ago
    I used Natalie on three separate occasions: first for a one-hour consulting session and twice for interview coaching sessions. First, I found Accepted's rates reasonable when compared to other consulting services given Natalie's background. Second, the communication between Natalie and me was great! She was always quick to respond. As for the consulting sessions themselves, Natalie was a HUGE help, especially with my interviews. I don't have a ton of practice with interviews, and I don't think I would have gotten into Columbia and Stern without her help. As a side note, I also had interviews at Fuqua and Darden last year. I did not use an admissions coach beforehand, and I was waitlisted at both schools. With Natalie's help, I had much better interviews ...

  • Thank you!
    4 years ago
    I'm sorry for taking so long to write this, but the summer has been insane (as I'm sure it has been for you). Now that the dust has settled I wanted to thank you for your help in getting me to Kellogg. It is way beyond what I ever thought I was capable of and I wouldn't even have known that I was a candidate were it not for you -- I will never forget what you've done for me, and want you to know that you've contributed to something that is truly life-changing for me (even BEFORE I go and do whatever I will do during and after my time there). The work you do is truly life-changing. If there is ANYTHING I can ...
