Stratus Admissions Counseling is a premier admissions counseling firm committed to helping clients achieve their dreams of going to business school, law school, and graduate school. Stratus has served thousands of clients from more than 50 countries with our unique team-based approach.
We match you with a Primary Counselor, who will not just help you with your application but will also be your mentor throughout the admissions process. In addition, an MBA Strategist will provide feedback at key points along the way to ensure you get the benefit of multiple perspectives on your progress and goals. Our MBA admissions team has firsthand experience with virtually all the top 20 MBA programs, and every client essay undergoes a “blind read” by a School-Specific Reviewer, mimicking how the admissions committees will read your application. Finally, a Proofreader will ensure that your grammar and punctuation are on point before you submit your completed files.
We are a team of thoughtful and experienced coaches who have graduated from leading business schools and have experience across a variety of functions, industries, and geographies. We are former admissions officers at esteemed MBA programs who have reviewed tens of thousands of applications. We are mentors, professional advisers, and strategists. We share our experience and knowledge with each other and with our clients. Most importantly, we are a team dedicated to your success.
