P&Q Consultant Reviews

  • Shari Was A Gem From Start To Finish!
    2 months ago
    I first met Shari while a part of the Fortè MBAlaunch program in Atlanta last spring. Shari was interested in my goals and assisting me with the application process for the MBA programs I was interested in. After the initial conversation, I knew that I could work candidly with Shari to hone in what I wanted to express in my application essays. Shari was swift when responding to my draft submissions and she never tried to change my point of view as a writer. I was able to capitalize on her ability to help applicants craft essays oozing with their authentic spirit. I am really grateful for Shari's help and energy while applying to MBA programs.
