  • Sherry's Help Beyond School Acceptance
    5 months ago
    I am writing to you from the C-Suite on the 14th floor of my fortune 500 company. This simply will not happen without Sherry's help. Six years ago I applied to a top MBA program and got rejected because my essays did not reflect my accomplishments and because I tried too hard during the interview. I always struggled with writing, but with Sherry's help, I got accepted to my #1 MBA program. From the first moment of interaction, Sherry became my Editor in Chief who edits my essays, took my content and created effective writing. Just by analyzing how Sherry transformed my stories to fabulous essays, I became more confident of my content and a better writer, not to mention the distinctive interview prep ...

  • Wonderful Experience With Sherry! Highly Recommended!
    5 months ago
    At the outset of my MBA journey, I knew that wanted to attend a top 10 business school, but I wasn’t confident that I could independently craft my personal and professional experiences into a narrative that would resonate with the Admissions Committee. Following an extensive search of MBA Admissions Consulting firms, I finally landed on Sherry at SBC, and from day one she has been an absolute pleasure to work with throughout the entire application process! She truly took the time to help me craft a compelling and consistent story across all the elements of my application. At the end of the day, I was accepted to my top choice program (M7) and I could not be more excited! You’ll love working ...

  • Best In The Industry
    5 months ago
    I was lucky to work with Sherry for my MBA admissions. She is the best in the industry. Rather than just asking me what to do, she helped me to channel my thoughts, provided me insights behind the admission process, and fine-tuned entire positioning. MBA admission is about positioning yourself as a dedicated MBA student (who can contribute to the rich learning experience of the class) and valued alumni (who can carry the ethos of the school to the future). Sherry helped me to create this powerful pitch for my preferred school and I feel lucky that I choose Sherry.

  • Highly Recommend

    As someone coming from work in the non-profit sector, I was unsure about how to best navigate the application process. From our initial kick-off call through receiving several acceptances, Sherry provided excellent advice and feedback. She helped me uncover and highlight the key elements of my story, communicating what I would bring to different programs. Throughout the process, Sherry was incredibly responsive and transparent with me. I would highly recommend working with Sherry to anyone who is considering it.

  • Highly Recommend!
    5 months ago
    Sherry was incredible to work with through the entire application process and I highly recommend her services. She quickly assessed my resume, target schools, test scores, academic record, and work experience to create a highly personalized application strategy. In particular, Sherry’s essay guidance helped me showcase my character and career goals such. She overhauled my resume to emphasize transferable skills, which created an overall message that connected to my application essays. For the essays, I was surprised at how detailed and nuanced her feedback was while l ensuring I had ownership over the language to maintain my voice. The results were extraordinary; I was accepted to every school I applied to include my reach school (top-20) where I had comparatively below average GMAT and bottom ...

  • Consummate Professional, Confidant, & Cheerleader
    5 months ago
    Sherry is absolutely amazing! I've worked with her for the past two years (year one was more of a trial year). She brings a wealth of knowledge, direction, and depth as you beginning and go through the application process. Sherry is a rock! I went from not having a clear idea as to my brand and how I wanted to showcase what I can offer a program. Sherry worked with me vigorously and gave me the tools and resources to reshape my candidacy. I love Sherry and due to her guidance, I have an opportunity to pursue a long time goal. Thanks, Sherry!!!!

  • An Amazing Coach & Mentor
    5 months ago
    After my initial consult, I knew Sherry would go above and beyond in making sure I was successful in my MBA journey. As a traditional candidate with a tight timeline, Sherry was strategic and helped me highlight my key strengths while also addressing my weaknesses. She was always available on short notice, willing to reach out to her colleagues for their insights, and was supportive throughout the entire process. Doing a mock interview with her was also extremely helpful! I was ultimately admitted to a top 10 program - Sherry is still helping me work through the waitlist process at my dream school and for that, I am forever grateful. Anyone would be lucky to work with Sherry - she is accountable, passionate, and willing ...

  • Amazing Consultant!!!

    Just got the call that I was admitted to UNC today! Thank you!!!! Sherry is the real deal when it comes to admissions consulting. You need a professional like her to keep you focused on developing a clear representation of your story to the schools. She's been a saint during an insane process. I'm so fortunate to work with Sherry. My stats weren't great but she helped me develop a clear story of how I would add value to business school. She had a clear track for me to follow on how to work on what I can change and address any apparent weaknesses. She was very patient and she worked around my needs. Her prior experience as an admissions officer was invaluable to help me ...
