Consultant Bio

Distinctive writing. It earned Sam an MBA from Oxford University’s Saïd Business School, three academic scholarships, an internship at De Beers and offers from two top investment banks. At Oxford, he was named on the Dean’s list, elected Social Chair, and graduated with Distinction.

Now a top admissions consultant, he was featured in this year’s Financial Times Global MBA Ranking. His edge comes from two key factors:

Firstly, you’ll structure and edit most of your essays together LIVE. Verbal communication is infinitely more engaging and time-efficient for busy professionals. No email ping-pong here.

Secondly, his personal experience at dozens of the world’s top business schools lets us tailor your narrative towards the exact requirements of your dream school. No generic templates, ever.

Company Information

Based in Amsterdam, Sam Weeks Consulting was founded with the purpose of leveling the playing field for international applicants.

International applicants often feel at a disadvantage expressing the nuanced differences between schools. Many benefit from additional panache when writing in a second language. Sam personally guides candidates through every step, supporting their application with his own experience and writing.

This relationship-based process builds trust and encourages candidates to dig into their personal story. Successful applications to top business schools in Europe and the US are the result.

Such a personal service means intake is limited to ensure quality.

  • Spain School Admit With Scholarship
    4 days ago
    I am a US applicant with an unconventional background. I worked with Sam for my applications to top European schools: ESADE, IE, and IESE, and I got admitted with a scholarship. Using Sam was a great investment for me. Some things that stood out while working with Sam: - I was working full time in my job so I worked with Sam during weekends, which was a game-changer for me. He was always available whenever I had any questions. - He was very direct. He asked tough questions to make me think and held me accountable. This meant I got all of my applications done to a super high quality in time for the tight deadlines. - Sam uses stories super well. We wrote my essays around ...

  • Bridging The US/Europe Knowledge Gap
    1 month ago
    I was referred to Sam by a friend of mine who had received really helpful career advice from Sam. I came to Sam with two particular problems: I had done really well with my European MBA applications (receiving a scholarship from INSEAD) and not well at all (dinged without interviews) with my MBA application in the US despite high expectations there. This difference in outcomes left me wondering what could explain the difference and whether I should consider reapplying. I also was left in a very tricky situation in deciding between INSEAD and LBS and negotiating scholarship money with LBS (my preferred European school) - this is an extremely delicate conversation and I wasn't sure exactly how to manage it without damaging the relationship. Sam ...

  • Waitlist Support And Offer...With A Scholarship!
    2 months ago
    I strongly recommend Sam to anyone needing support and guidance at any point during their MBA application process. I started working with Sam after being waitlisted at four schools I applied to in R1. Sam and I came up with a waitlist plan for each school, hammered out my post-MBA career plans, and did a mock interview for a school I applied to in R3. I cannot stress the importance of Sam's support during the most difficult months of an almost year-long application process that I had expected would only take three months. The re-application plan we came up with gave me incredible peace of mind, as I realized the mistakes I had made when I was trying to do all of this on my ...

  • Outstanding Consultant For My IESE Application
    3 months ago
    My experience with Sam was nothing short of fantastic. I came in undecided on which degree to pursue and Sam not only guided my career path using his broad experience but laid out the specific steps I should take to make it a reality. He gave me his direct and honest advice while empathizing with my struggle as if he were in my own shoes, and helped me narrow down my list of business schools both in Europe and in the US. His help was invaluable in finding the schools which fit me best and complimented my career, which included IESE. His guidance and essay editing are top class, and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him to anyone hoping for an admit to their dream ...

  • Experienced & Professional MBA Consultant!
    4 months ago
    I worked with Sam on my HBS application in round 1 and received an admit at Harvard Business School. I applied while working full-time and he was available at short notice whenever I needed him. Most impressive was during the interview preparation when he adopted different interviewer styles, aggressive/slow, general/detailed to prepare me for whatever the interview threw at me on the day. Once I had been accepted, he was very thoughtful in helping me think through my decision, sharing his own experience of attending business school. This illustrated his continuous genuine care for your outcomes. Since I only applied to HBS that’s a 100% success rate together! Massive thanks Sam, I couldn’t have done it without you.

  • Helpful Guidance Based On First-Hand Experience
    4 months ago
    Sam helped me navigate both the application process and subsequent decision-making when admission offers came in. Early in my search, he outlined the admissions criteria of various schools, such as GMAT thresholds and the profile of incoming cohorts, which helped me tailor my applications. After I had secured offers from the top three UK programs, Sam talked me through each school’s student experience and the typical career paths of their graduates. He discussed Oxford’s focus on social impact, Cambridge’s strengths in entrepreneurship, and LBS’s substantial alumni network in the fields of finance and consulting as well as its proximity to interviewers in those fields. His advice, based on his own first-hand experience as an applicant and MBA candidate, helped me choose LBS as the best program both ...

  • He Does Whatever It Takes!
    5 months ago
    As an Indian IT Male candidate applying to schools for the last two years, I was very familiar with the kind of points I wanted to put forward. However, it wasn’t working and one of the primary reasons for that is my failure to bind them all in a cohesive storyline. Enter Sam. The very first time we spoke over a free consultation, I realized how he genuinely cared. I ended signing him up for Oxford but on one condition – I wanted his entire Christmas weekend as I was pre-occupied with prior commitments until the deadline! He never once complained and was extremely accommodating. We got on a video call and he spent the first few hours only trying to understand me and my motivations ...

  • A Genuinely Caring Helping Hand!
    6 months ago
    As an Asian engineer breaking into a product management role through an MBA at Haas, I knew that I was facing the highest competition in the 2020-2021 admission cycle. Sam helped me craft an outstanding story that fits the school’s culture and thoroughly touched on every aspect of my application to flesh out my life experience and highlight my personal character and unique strengths. Sam was always available to chat, even with very short notice and across time zones. The best part about working with Sam was that he genuinely cares about me and wants to help in every way possible to make my dream come true. Thank you so much for all your help throughout the process. I highly recommend Sam for anyone ...

  • Incredible Experience With Sam Consulting’s
    6 months ago
    I chose Sam Weeks Consulting’s because I was targeting mostly European schools. I chose the 3 School Comprehensive Package. Sam has already gone through the process himself and knows exactly the type of student profile the admission committees are looking for. We decided I should apply to HEC Paris, NUS Singapore and Oxford Said. Sam was patient to understand my story and the bits that should highlight in my application. In our first profile assessment call, he spent more than double of the time initially allocated just to understand my profile in detail. He has a knack for story-telling which transformed my experiences to a brilliant and involving essay. He broke up the essay prompts into manageable sections, tailored my response to the school’s specifications ...

  • Exceptional MBA Consultant
    7 months ago
    From the outset, Sam provided me with professional advice that was robust, strategic, and authentic. Sam has a compelling story of his own, a proven history of being successful, and an approach that resonated with me. We spent time together selecting the best choice of business schools relative to my consulting background and future aspirations. Together we discussed how my background would be a great fit for a top business school. Sam was flexible in his approach and laid out a timeline that worked for me whilst balancing a career in management consultancy and my desire to complete an MBA. We had discussions about which rounds to target based on my personal circumstances, with consideration to scholarships that were applicable to me. What I appreciated the most was ...
