Senior MBA Consultant

Consultant Bio

If New York City were to have a poster child, Seth would be it…and that’s not just because he never sleeps! A native New Yorker, Seth got his career start in professional modeling… as an investment banking analyst at Credit Suisse.

He then eschewed life on Fashion Avenue and Wall Street for aluminum factories and technology labs as an analyst at Alcoa. Seth received his MBA from Harvard Business School and BA from the University of Pennsylvania and is proud to be an active alumni committee member for both of his alma maters.

Seth is passionate about building and growing companies and is currently focused on investing in, improving and scaling the most promising enterprises. When not tirelessly helping his clients get into the MBA program of their dreams, Seth moonlights as a cultural sophisticate. Seth has dabbled in the art of haute cuisine, has performed classical piano on the stages of Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center, and has traveled the four corners of the world to satisfy his long-held goal of visiting the Earth’s tallest buildings —he’s been to 12 out of 20 so far.

Back at home in NYC, if you don’t spot Seth racing down the stairs to catch the 4-5-6 train, you are likely to find him crushing the ski slopes, whisking across the tennis court, or perfecting the craft of planking in the gym.

  • Thanks For Getting Me Into Wharton!

    Seth and his team were amazing -- always on top of things, fast to respond, and super insightful. I especially appreciated Seth's background in finance and investing, as he was able to give me nuanced and practical views/advice that I don't believe other consultants without his strong background could provide. The rest of the team was also super efficient and eased a lot of the stress related to applying to business school. Highly recommend Seth and the Admissionado team!

  • Fantastic Service

    This is a fantastic admissions consultant service. Seth is very good at working with clients (prospective business school students). They did a great job simplifying the essays and highlighting what the core question was that needed to be answered. I consistently got great feedback from Seth and the editorial team. This was helpful because I received edits on how to craft a response that catered to what the question was asking/what schools wanted to hear, while also getting independent feedback on how to improve my writing overall. The rest of the team is organized in laying out a work plan/schedule and sticking to it. They helped me get into several top business school programs, and even before I heard back from schools, I felt really strongly ...
