    From the moment I began working with Sherry, she helped me in every step of the MBA application process. From helping me in my school selection process to finding my strengths and selling points to approaching my recommenders, preparing for the interviews, helping me prepare my resume and even reviewing my thank you notes. Sherry´s experience and knowledge will guide you through this stressful process providing insights and recommendations along the way. She is extremely approachable and through a mixture of introspective exercises, calls, emails and multiple touch points she will provide active and honest feedback to help you prepare solid applications.

  • A Truly Personalized Experience!

    I worked with Sherry Holland on my applications and I am now a student at HEC Paris. Sherry is a professional and very knowledgeable. I especially found her interview prep session extremely helpful. As with the rest of the application, the for the interview prep was very personalized and felt very close to a real Ad-com interview. The feedback was honest and Sherry held nothing back, which is a good thing since it helped me put things in perspective. I recommend her to future MBA aspirants!

  • Highly Recommend SBC & Sherry
    2 weeks ago
    I highly recommend SBC and Sherry as your MBA consultant. I know it's expensive, but it's worth it because of the HIGH ROI. As a Chinese male who has an untraditional background and a low GMAT score, I am thrilled to be admitted by a Top MBA program in the US. Sherry made my past one-year application process enjoyable, POSITIVELY stressful, and unforgettable. Sherry is very detailed. She reviewed not only my resume, essays, and application form, but also every single other document or email that I prepared. She even corrected my grammar mistakes of my spoken English after she reviewed my mock interview videos. Working with Sherry not only helped me get in my dream school but also helped me know my advantages and ...

  • Highly recommended!
    2 weeks ago
    From start to finish, Sherry provided exactly what I needed to help me through the admissions process. She was incredibly helpful from a strategic perspective in identifying and narrowing in on the qualities to best highlight during the admissions process. Tactically, she offered pinpoint advice on essay and e-mail crafting. Things that I especially appreciated from Sherry include her unfiltered honesty, unfaltering availability, openness to two-way discussions, and constant motivation. Sherry was integral to the success of my MBA journey and I highly recommend her to anyone looking for guidance in their application process.

  • Sherry Is The Best Of The Best
    3 weeks ago
    Since signing on with SBC for the “all in” package and electing to work with Sherry, I have been immensely pleased and impressed with the level of service, guidance, support, and feedback that Sherry has provided. Her constructive council, honesty, and enthusiastic spirit have guided me through some tough decisions and periods of stress as I went through the process. I have felt that Sherry (and the team at SBC), really got to know me as an individual and worked wholeheartedly to illuminate my unique strengths and mitigate any perceived opportunities. Beyond guidance on essay and application framing, Sherry provided guidance on emails to Adcom members and recommendations for how to engage with organizations and students at my targeted schools. The interview prep was also very ...

    Sherry is a true professional. I really liked her method, her planning, and her order. Sherry is honest, kind and direct. She is the person you want to be with during the long application journey. I don't have words to express how valuable and supportive she can be. She has been a key ingredient for my success. Thanks again, Sherry!

  • Sherry - Professional, Knowledgeable & Veryyyyy Kind
    4 weeks ago
    I decided to use the services of SBC after having a not so good application season when I got rejected from all my top choices. I had previously worked with a different consultant and I felt cheated when a lot of current students reviewed my essays and gave me a long list of flaws in my essays. That's why I decided to go full monty and work with the best in the business. I talked with some of the best admissions consultants, but it clicked with SBC and I went further ahead to work with SBC for a comprehensive service. I decided to apply to around 4-6 schools. The initial call with Esther was pleasant and she, in fact, traced back our previous conversation dated ...

  • Sherry is Amazing
    1 month ago
    I only worked with Sherry for a short time but she was definitely a great added value. We did a flight test together, which means that Sherry read my essays and resume before I hit the submit button. During a skype call, Sherry asked the right questions so that I gained insight on how to finetune my application.

  • Available When You Need Her
    1 month ago
    I had a great experience working with Sherry for my full-time MBA application. She kept me on schedule with my essays and was honest in her feedback. She was also thorough in her edits, and was available via email or a phone call whenever I had a question come up. When I was waitlisted at my top choice she gave me great advice on how to navigate the process, and I ended up getting into my top choice school off of the waitlist! She also showed me a lot of encouragement throughout the entire process.

  • Excellent Consultant
    1 month ago
    Deciding to go with a Stacy Blackman and work with Sherry was one of the best decisions I’ve made. Sherry was extremely responsive and helpful as we devised a plan for MBA programs. Her insights and feedback on my essays were always meaningful. She ultimately helped me gain acceptance to 3 MBA programs and helped me earn more scholarship money at one of the schools. I highly recommend Sherry to anyone looking to gain acceptance to business school. Thank you, Sherry!
