  • Nisha Is Beyond Awesome!
    3 days ago
    Nisha instantly understood exactly what my needs were. I am definitely not a writer and she helped me craft my life's journey. She asked the right questions to help me think about my essay from different angles. I also chatted with her just before my interview and she encouraged me to be my authentic self and it worked. To be honest, I was feeling a little under confident and I really wanted to chat with someone who understood the industry and could give me their honest opinion about my candidacy. Thank you, Nisha, for being a MBA consultant + a therapist!

    I had am amazing experience working with Nisha throughout the MBA application process. We first spoke a month before the R2 deadline for the Fall 2023 application cycle, and during this we decided that I did not have enough time to submit a strong application for my top programs. Fast forward to summer 2023, Nisha and I reconnected and began working together for the Fall 2024 R2 deadline. She is incredibly patient, kind, accommodating and compassionate. She pushed me to discover what my true goals were and helped me craft a narrative to best showcase them. She is tapped into exactly what business schools are looking for and is able to expertly guide clients. I am so thankful to have been connected to Nisha, ...

    3 weeks ago
    Working with Nisha throughout the whole process made MBA applications feel less daunting. I'm a nontraditional candidate and knew that I needing a guiding hand throughout this process. I worked with Nisha to apply to 2 schools, as well as the base application for Consortium. She really took the time to get to know me, and teased out aspects of my story that I would not have otherwise chosen to emphasize. I found her feedback to be firm (extremely helpful when second-guessing every aspect of an application!) yet remarkably kind. And she was extremely available over email for every small, nit-picking question that I wanted to think through together.

    I had the privilege of working with Nisha on two applications, and was admitted to both programs with funding support. Initially, I thought I had a fairly good sense of the programs I was interested in and what I wanted out of them. My plan was to review the available guides and apply on my own. Given the high cost of MBA programs (both financial and commitment!), I decided working with a consultant would be a small investment to ensure I was targeting the best fit programs and putting forth my best application. I am so glad I did and found Nisha! She was very approachable, responsive, and offered great questions and feedback throughout the whole process. She was also a wonderful thought partner on ...

    Prior to hiring Nisha, I had failed to get into any of the five schools I applied to in round one. I was referred to Nisha by a friend and she very quickly helped me redo my essays and general narrative, quickly pointing out where there was significant room or improvement. I’m happy to say in round two, I had much greater success. I secured offers from both Chicago Booth and Columbia Business School. I’m confident that I would not have been successful had I not been willing to pivot and bring in Nisha.

    Nisha helped me during my Round 1 applications to three M7 schools - I was ultimately accepted to all three, including a scholarship offer from one school! Nisha was incredibly efficient and usually provided essay comments within a day. She was great at teasing out specific aspects of the narrative to ensure results and implications were clearly highlighted. During interview prep, she helped me identify areas of my profile that were not explicitly described in my written application to give more color to my personality. The application process was intense and nerve-racking, but I am so grateful that Nisha always provided candid feedback, a fresh perspective, and incredible support. Still in disbelief that I'm actually going to b-school, thank you, Nisha!

    I worked with Nisha on multiple applications during the 2023 cycle and I simply cannot underestimate how pivotal she was for my success! We worked together on HSW and I was accepted into H and W - an outcome I could only dream about prior to getting the official letters.

Also, Nisha has a special skill for understanding the heart of an applicant’s story, which, I believe makes her edits crisp and insightful.

Coming into the process, I didn't have a strong network of peers that were applying to schools and was juggling studying for the GRE and full-time work. Nisha helped provide structure during my MBA application process for Round 1 as we worked together on three schools. Nisha knew how to find the important themes and points in my profile that would differentiate me from other applicants with similar work experiences. I knew I wanted to spend the extra money given that I wanted to be as risk-averse as possible in the process and it was the best investment I made.

    Before reaching out to mbaMission, I was really hesitant to apply to school this year and unsure of whether I'd be admitted to any program. Thanks to all the help from Nisha at mbaMission, I was accepted to my target school! Nisha walked me through every part of the application and answered all my questions. She helped frame my story in the essays in order to put my best foot forward in the application. Nisha was available over email and responded super promptly to all of my essay and application questions. Once my application was submitted, Nisha also helped me prep for the interview and conducted a mock interview that really helped me prep for the real one. Additionally, mbaMission has tons of guides to ...

  • A-School Thanks To Nisha!
    3 years ago
    Nisha is fantastic! I was interested in numerous top 20 schools but felt lost as to which would be the best fit. Nisha walked me through a school selection exercise where we narrowed my prospects to a couple of top 10 programs. She gave me the confidence to apply for schools I previously perceived as out of reach. She is fantastic at providing advice on essays without telling you what to write. I additionally found the mock interviews incredibly helpful. With Nisha's coaching, I was admitted into both top-tier programs I applied to!

  • Best Career Decision EVER
    3 years ago
    One of the best decisions I ever made was choosing to work with Nisha on my MBA applications. After unsuccessfully applying only to Kellogg’s MBA program two years in a row (I really had my heart set on staying in Chicago and going to Kellogg), I decided to take the plunge and hire an mbaMission consultant. As a non-traditional applicant, coming from a career in the nonprofit world and very little business background, I didn’t want to risk not getting into a top program and wasting yet another year. After reading each consultant’s bio, I ultimately chose to go with Nisha because of her extensive experience in the philanthropy world and feeling that she would best understand my background and translate my story strongly and ...

    3 years ago
    I worked with Nisha from July 2020-May 2021 and she was extremely patient and supportive throughout the entire process. From our initial brainstorm, she always asked questions to help me dive deeper into my past experiences to tell a compelling story. She was clear and direct in her constructive criticism and consistently (and quickly) provided feedback to my essays and short answers to strengthen my application. Additionally, the interview prep was one of the best parts of my experience with mbaMission. It helped me feel more confident going into my interviews and ultimately helped me land at my dream school. Thank you, Nisha, for all of your help! I couldn't have done it without you!

    Nisha is an amazing consultant- she truly helped raise the bar on all of my applications. She helped me get into every business school that I applied to. (With scholarships!) She was a thorough reviewer and helped me ensure my story was consistent/concise while still being unique to me. I recommend her to future applicants without any reservation and I am confident that Nisha works in this way no matter what. Thank you again Nisha for being such an advocate for candidates.

    Nisha was really an excellent consultant. She had the unique task of working with both me and my girlfriend trying to get into the same school and she went the extra mile to ensure that we did. Nisha was extremely attentive and knowledgeable. She was also very honest and transparent about her reasoning which made the process a lot more understandable and less intimidating. She did a great job with general advice as well as the essays and helped us get into USC!! Nisha's help was really more than we could've hoped for! I would recommend Nisha to anybody beginning this difficult but worthwhile process!

    While I was initially hesitant to hire a consultant, I can say that it was completely well worth the cost to work with mbaMission and, most importantly, with Nisha! I signed up for free consultations with mbaMission and Stacy Blackman Consulting to hopefully gain some additional insight. Admittedly, I wasn’t the most organized when going into these consultations, but I had trouble connecting with the consultant from SBC and frankly found her to be condescending and rude. I wasn’t sure if I was asking her “dumb” questions, but she certainly made me feel that way. In late August, I had my mbaMission consultation with Nisha, and, while I was equally as disorganized as I was with SBC, my experience with Nisha was completely different. I asked ...

    I would recommend Nisha to anyone applying to business school! I worked with her on a 2-school package. Initially, I was incredibly overwhelmed and intimidated by the application process. However, Nisha's calm and friendly demeanor eliminated much of the stress. She was very responsive, always willing to jump on a call and listen. Nisha was also very organized, helping me to stay on track and prioritize particular aspects of my applications. Nisha asked curious and intelligent questions that helped me articulate my experience and goals in a thoughtful way. Most importantly, she really listened to my questions and concerns. She supported me every step of the way. When I was accepted to my top school, Nisha was the first person I wanted to tell!

There is a myriad of consultants online, and I’ve spent some time reading through their resumes on P&Q and GMAT Club. At first, I hired a “highly-reviewed” company that turned out to be a money pumping machine (I can give you more details if you’d like). After spending some time with them, I decided to go a different route. That’s when I talked to Nisha. Why I liked Nisha: 1. We had a 30-minutes no-charge fit call.

    Picking an MBA advisor is a major decision that can shape the rest of one’s future. As I began to research different advisors, Nisha stood out immediately. Watching her introduction video and reading about her background I could feel her passion and sincere desire to help students reach their MBA goals. From the first few minutes speaking with her I knew I made the right decision. She is so knowledgeable about the MBA process and what top schools look for in applicants. With her extensive knowledge and skill I had complete confidence in her that I would be accepted into my top school. Nisha is always so responsive and helpful every-time we spoke. I would send her a draft in the evening and I would ...

  • Success!! Accepted to Booth & Fuqua
    5 years ago
    After struggling through the GMAT and feeling lost and unconfident after receiving an unexpected waitlist decision, Nisha coached me through submitting the rest of my applications, interview prep, and the waitlist process. I was impressed with Nisha's professionalism, empathy, coaching skills, and level of experience. She really set me at ease and alleviated the stress that comes along with this process. I've already made a personal referral and would trust Nisha to work with any colleague or friend. I was accepted to 2/5 programs I applied to and will be attending Booth in the fall. This is a major success story and a testament to the quality of services provided by MBA mission and Nisha. Highly recommend!!!!!

  • Fantastic Consultant - Highly Recommend!
    5 years ago
    I worked with Nisha during my MBA program selection and application process for 3+ months. She guided me in my decision to apply to the NYU Stern's part-time program and helped me transform my application to present my background, work experience, and extracurricular activities the best I possibly could. Nisha responded to my questions quickly, was always willing to get on the phone with me to discuss any piece of the application process and sent me feedback on my outlines and drafts within 24 hours. It was all extremely helpful throughout the process and allowed me to submit what I believe was a very strong application. I was accepted to Stern but even if I did not get the acceptance, I would have recommended ...

  • Admitted Into My Dream School With Nisha
    5 years ago
    I can't imagine going through the application process without Nisha. I was lost, I didn't know exactly what each school was looking for, and I was uncertain of how I should answer all those essay questions. Nisha helped me hone in on my narrative, kept everything in my application(s) on-message, and was a phenomenal help when it came to revising essays. She always responded as quickly as she could and was only encouraging. For a person with not-so-high test scores, it is a miracle that I'm going to one of the best business schools in the world and I owe it to Nisha.

  • Great Coach!
    5 years ago
    After taking the GMAT, I was a bit lost in terms of where, to begin with, the application process. I couldn't decide how to best position my non-traditional healthcare background. Nisha helped me tell my story more effectively and challenged me to be introspective about why I am pursuing my MBA. Working with her helped me to more clearly define my short and long-term goals, which became imperative not only for applications, but also for business school meet-and-greet events and, later on, interviews. Throughout the entire process, Nisha was prompt, encouraging and thoughtful in her feedback. I applied to 4 schools and was accepted to three with varying merit-based scholarships (including my "reach" school!), and am wait-listed at the fourth. I believe I would not ...

  • Amazing At Her Job
    5 years ago
    I come from a non-traditional background and wanted to add a consultant to help tailor my profile. I shopped around and after a few consultations, it was abundantly clear that Nisha not only was incredibly competent but also very reasonable, understanding and supportive. She was always incredibly quick to respond to email and regularly turned around redline requests quicker than the advertised 48 hour window. Her ability to highlight strong aspects of an essay and guide me to expand on stronger points is second to none. I think my favorite aspect of working with Nisha is how quickly I came to trust her opinion on any application related matter. I applied to 4 schools and was accepted to all 4 and was even ...

  • Thorough, Thoughtful & Enthusiastic - Highly Recommend!
    5 years ago
    I applied to 4 MBA programs in the first round in the fall of 2018 and I had a super busy work schedule, so I needed a consultant to provide guidance and coaching on very specific areas of my application, rather than trying to re-work aspects that I was already happy with. Nisha understood this right from the beginning. We focused on re-working my resume, which I hadn't touched in 5 years. She was extremely thorough with the resume and would provide high-level initial feedback to get me on the right track. I found that she was particularly strong at helping me see my accomplishments and skills through the eyes of an admissions officer, so that I could find the best way to position everything. ...

  • Great Coach, Incredible Insight & Knowledge
    5 years ago
    I purchased a two school start to finish package with Nisha and it was worth every penny. Her resume critique is the gold standard. She helped me develop a resume that allowed me to fully explain my story but still remain concise and not long winded. With the essays she helped me realize the nuances with every essay question. She also helped me realize that every essay must be as concise and to the point. Her interview prep was invaluable. After doing mock interviews with her, going into the real interviews was like doing it a second time, that's how good she is. In addition to that Nisha was very speedy when it came to essay feedback, even when she was traveling abroad! When it ...

  • I can't thank Nisha enough
    6 years ago
    Nisha was everything I needed and more. She was so thorough, contentious of my time, money, and needs, and supportive the whole time. I was under a lot of pressure at work and felt really limited with my time in the application process and Nisha worked with all of my challenges. She was really good at helping me schedule and make deadlines for myself and keeping me accountable. Nisha helped me from A to Z with defining my "why" and forming my story in a genuine way that would resonate with others to guiding me through the waitlist process. She was so strategic with what information I should share and when - I would not have been able to do that part on my own. ...

  • Nisha was Everything I Needed in a Consultant!
    6 years ago
    Nisha helped guide my application journey from start to finish. With her help I was able to leverage my personal story and get into my target school. What I loved about working with her is how she pushed me to dive deep into my ‘why’ behind pursuing an MBA. She helped me communicate my purpose to the adcom in a way that was efficient and descriptive. Nisha is extremely thorough. I noticed this during our introductory consultation call. Her eye for detail was present throughout the entire process. She always had a great attitude, which was refreshing since applying to B-school can be draining at times. mbaMission also has a bunch of great resources, like their guides. I HIGHLY recommend Nisha to anyone who is ...

  • Nisha helped me shine!
    6 years ago
    I started working with Nisha a bit late in the game - meaning I had already taken the GMAT twice, recruited my references and I was only about 3 months out from application deadlines. I was aiming for 4 top 10 MBA programs and had high expectations. Nisha hit the ground running with me for resume and essay reviews and edits. Given that each school had their own 2-3 essay prompts, documents were flying back and forth between us daily. She really knew how to tailor each essay to the particular school and knew the inside scoop on each admission committee. Nisha not only helped me have amazing essays, but she helped me stay true to myself so that my personal stories captured the admissions ...

  • Resourcefulness and Personalized Feedback
    6 years ago
    It is an understatement to say I would not have gotten into business school without the help of Nisha from mbaMission. Throughout our one year working together, Nisha was a guide and thought partner I could count on. Her thoughtful feedback, rapid turnarounds, and ability to leverage other mbaMission resources made a huge difference in my candidacy. Nisha got to know me pretty well, despite just working on an hourly engagement. Thus, she was able to give me personalized feedback at all levels: from clarifying and tightening essay language to guidance on how I could improve my overall applicant profile. Nisha provided this feedback consistently much faster than the 2-day turnaround requirement. To drive this point home: Nisha returned feedback on an essay to me ...

  • Fantastic work and quick turnaround!
    6 years ago
    Working with Nisha was a great experience. She was very friendly and helpful in answering every question that I had. She helped make my essays concise and set in the correct narrative structure. Nisha's turnaround was quick, it only took her a day to get back to my drafts. In addition to the essays, Nisha helped me practice for my interviews and typical why questions. I would highly recommend Nisha when the deadline was approaching she made herself available during the weekend and got back to me right away when I had questions and made sure I was 100% comfortable before submitting my application. With her help, I was admitted to Chicago Booth.

  • Amazing, and very helpful
    6 years ago
    I had the pleasure of working with Nisha during my MBA application process. As many would attest, this is usually a very stressful process. I attended an online MBA application workshop conducted by mbaMission, and Nisha was one of the facilitators. One of my target schools was Michigan Ross, and Nisha is an alum. This, combined with the positive impression she created during the online session, made me choose her as my consultant. Right from tweaking my resume, to fine tuning my essays, Nisha's insights, and two cents was invaluable. She was very helpful, and prompt in her replies/feedback. I also did mock interviews with her. There again, she tried to simulate the real interviews as much as possible, and this practice made me feel at ...

  • Nisha is a game changer!
    6 years ago
    I worked with Nisha Trivedi through my entire application process. I can honestly say I would not have been admitted to these schools without her help. She does a great job at helping you combine elements into a cohesive story that anyone can understand. She also takes the time to explain her thought process and provide options when selecting statements/stories. I would recommend Nisha to anyone in the process - she can pick up at any point, work with any personality (she's also worked with two of my friends), and help you deliver the best version for each school!

  • Hourly Package: Worth Every Penny

    The MBA admissions process can be stressful - trying to balance work, GMAT prep, and applications is difficult. Nisha helped demystify the application process and worked with me to break down the application steps into manageable chunks so I never felt overwhelmed. She is great at helping you tell a story to the Admissions committee and making sure that your best attributes shine through. I highly recommend Nisha for your MBA applications.

    Nisha was extremely helpful through the entire MBA process- start to finish. All my questions were answered quickly and she took as much time needed to talk through applications. She was a great resource and always supported the decisions I made on applying R1 vs R2 after giving me all the information I could use to make those decisions in an informed manner. Highly recommend Nisha!

  • Nisha was AMAZING
    6 years ago
    I applied for Round 1 through the 2-school package. From the beginning, I really liked Nisha's honesty and candid feedback. Throughout the process, she constantly provided additional resources for my application. I also started my application process relatively late, but Nisha was very quick and efficient with editing my essays with qualitative feedback. While preparing for my interviews, she provided extra support, since she knew I was very nervous.

  • Nisha was amazing help!
    7 years ago
    I worked with Nisha & MBA Mission through the hourly package - as I had already narrowed down my schools and had an idea of what my application would look like. After spending some time understanding my goals and motivation for an MBA, we started outlining the stories that I wanted to tell in each of my essays. Nisha really helped me get my thoughts together and put them down in an essay in a clear and concise way. Nisha was very responsive even through the critical holiday season (I had applied in round 2 - in December/January) and her insights were extremely helpful. I was waitlisted at one of my top choices, and Nisha was extremely helpful in sending additional updates, which eventually helped ...

  • Huge thanks to Nisha and mbaMission!

    I cannot say enough good things about Nisha and mbaMission overall. I was not originally planning to use a consulting service, but I am so glad I reached out for help. I got started a little late in the application process, but felt immediately relieved after my first call with Nisha. Once she had an idea of my background and goals, we hit the ground running. I felt like I knew my story but was having a difficult time making it clear and concise on paper. Nisha really took the time to understand the nuances of my experiences and my short term and long term goals. She used this understanding to make thoughtful and tangible recommendations on my essays. Nisha provided valuable insight on the ...
