P&Q Consultant Reviews

  • Professional, Insightful & Patient
    2 weeks ago
    I worked with Sherry after my first application was unsuccessful. Sherry worked with my from initial brainstorming to providing guidance on my personal statements, and lastly on working through mock interviews. I had one specific school in mind, so that was the less stressful work, at the same time, I only had one school in mind so getting acceptance into that school was paramount. Sherry's wise advice paid off. I received admission!

  • Professional, Thoughtful & Patient
    3 weeks ago
    Sherry was recommended to me by a friend who she had helped with b school applications the year prior. My application wasn't typical - I started late after R1 deadlines had already passed, and my work experience until that point was a bit spotty. Sherry understood the urgency of the situation and quickly helped me prioritize schools for R2 vs R3, gave candid advice on school selection, and was very patient in answering the many questions I asked of her during that phase. She then helped me navigate the challenge around my work ex and allowed me to focus in my application and in my interviews on my story. She was also very good at bringing the right stories into my essays and helped strengthen ...

  • Awesome & Professional Advisor
    3 weeks ago
    I had the pleasure to work with Sherry throughout the process and couldn't give her a better rating. She specializes in military backgrounds and, as a veteran, she understood my story right away and curtailed it to make my applications shine. Overall I applied to 5 schools, received interviews for all, and accepted to 4. I finished my MBA last year at a top 10 program and am currently working in Investment Banking for a large global firm in NYC. Life couldn't be any better and I give a lot of credit to Sherry for where I am today.

  • Professional, Caring & Easy To Work With
    3 weeks ago
    Sherry helped me with my NYU Stern/Courant dual MBA/MFE application. I was accepted to both programs but chose to attend another program. Sherry was very easy to work with and provided great insights into the application process. She helped me choose topics from my professional and personal life that maximized my application portfolio. I really appreciated her professional perspective regarding my strengths and weaknesses and also her availability and promptness in responding to my many queries. I would highly recommend Sherry as a resource to anyone looking for guidance and help with the B-School application process.

  • Kind, Supportive, & Honest
    4 weeks ago
    I started to work with Sherry after I submitted my R1 applications and was not getting the responses I was hoping for. we developed a go forward plan for R2, and as I ended up getting an interview for my choice school from R1, she graciously made time in her schedule to do a mock interview (we only had a few days in between getting the interview and the day of). Sherry was very supportive throughout the whole process, yet balanced that with honest feedback and thoughts. I am so grateful that I was able to work with her.

  • Sherry Was Awesome
    4 weeks ago
    I had the pleasure of working with Sherry on my business school apps! As someone with a sub 3.0 GPA, I had no idea where to apply and what my odds were. Sherry helped me bring out my strengths and address my weaknesses. Furthermore, she worked as hard as I did. This parlayed into admission to a Top 10-15 school! I would recommend Sherry to anyone who is willing to put in the work and is receptive to constructive feedback!

  • Sherry's Help Beyond School Acceptance
    4 weeks 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!
    4 weeks 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
    4 weeks 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.
