P&Q Consultant Reviews

  • Personal One-On-One Experience
    2 months ago
    I did extensive research on admissions consultants and wanted to hire a company that would pair me with only one consultant throughout my application process. I hired Tyler because we had a conversation prior to any commitment. Tyler came prepared to the meeting having analyzed my resume and gave a candid and thoughtful analysis of what his approach would be (and provided references of his past clients). My experience with Tyler was exceptional, not only because I got into my top choice (Columbia Business School), but because Tyler took a methodical approach by first 1) understanding my professional history and 2) the different career paths I was considering. Only then did we start to craft my story, and then finally considered essays. I also only ...

  • If You're Serious About B-School, You MUST Work With Tyler
    3 months ago
    I want to start by saying that I would not have gotten into business school without Tyler’s help. I was serious about going back to school, but having gone to a non-target undergrad and with mid-tier work experience, I had no idea where I would land. I’ll now be graduating with an MBA from Wharton next year because of Tyler. Tyler is undisputedly the best in the business (I did a lot of research, and spoke to a number of consultants before deciding to work with Tyler), and has a unique approach of working with candidates -- rather than trying to fit your experience into a specific mold, Tyler takes the time to understand your “personal story” (in an impressive amount of detail), and then ...

  • More Than A Consultant - A Life Coach
    4 months ago
    Like many, I sought an admissions consultant to even the playing field, but what I found in Tyler was way more - he was a life coach that took me on a journey of self-discovery. Tyler won't write an essay for you, but he will ask you for very detailed questions about your background, your dreams, and your motivations. With me, he keeps digging relentlessly until together we discovered a strong, honest narrative for what I am seeking in a career where an MBA program is a piece of the puzzle. The narratives and motivations he helped me discover still guide me like a compass years after I've graduated. I also learned skills to self evaluate and self examine each time I find myself at ...

  • Absolutely Worth It!
    4 months ago
    Tyler is not just an MBA coach - he is a life coach who is more than worth his fee. (Long story short: applied to a few top schools with only four months of prep and accepted into an H/S/W with scholarship money). Last May, I suddenly decided I wanted to apply Round 1 and interviewed several big names MBA consulting firms and coaches. I heard about Tyler through a friend and set up a call. What immediately stood out to me was Tyler’s methodical, diligent approach. Other coaches didn’t have a structured plan for attacking the application process, and I wanted someone who had experience and success working with clients applying to top schools. After signing with Tyler, I still felt overwhelmed. The MBA application ...

  • Tyler Could Be The Very Best In The Business
    4 months ago
    My experience leaves me no doubt about the importance of hiring excellent consultants, and I would not hesitate to recommend Tyler to anyone applying to the best schools. The fees may be high, but not when compared to the cost (tuition + opportunity cost) of an MBA, and it’s worth paying up for the very best. I was a reapplicant to business school this year. The first time I applied I worked with a consultant at Fortuna Admissions. Result: Harvard rejected me after placing me on the waitlist, and Stanford did not even interview me. Half a dozen consultants whom I later hired to review my unsuccessful applications all saw the same obvious holes and common pitfalls, which my Fortuna consultant missed. I decided to reapply ...

  • Tyler Is Simply The Best At What He Does!
    4 months ago
    When I started applying to business schools a year ago, it seemed challenging that I would get admitted to the top school in my list - Wharton. That all changed 3 months ago when I got a call from Wharton congratulating me on my admission, and that too with a scholarship! I have to thank Tyler as he played an integral role in helping me achieve what once seemed unlikely. I started my b-school application journey with little sense of what it takes to apply to top schools. After thorough research and speaking with many other consultants, Tyler seemed like the obvious choice. Tyler has an A to Z MBA application framework which will be helpful for anyone starting from scratch. Moreover, he provides instructional videos ...

  • Couldn't Have Done It Without Tyler
    4 months ago
    I worked with Tyler over a 3-month time frame as I was putting together my applications to two of the top business schools in the country. I ultimately was accepted into my top choice (Columbia), and I rescinded my application to my 2nd choice school before I heard back from them. I can say with near certainty that I would not have been accepted into Columbia if it wasn’t for Tyler’s coaching and guidance. Tyler’s approach was critical to my success. He doesn’t play games, but rather, he drew the best out of me. We spent multiple sessions (and hours of homework in between) going through my story and what makes me unique. While it was all truthful and genuine, there were things that made ...

  • Admitted to My First Choice School
    1 year ago
    Tyler Cormney was an invaluable partner to have for the business school application process, and I would highly recommend him to any applicant aiming for a top tier business school. With Tyler’s coaching, I will be attending my first choice school, Wharton, next year. I was connected with Tyler by a friend who worked with him, and who credited him in large part to his admittance to Harvard Business School. Tyler’s expertise and desire to help me succeed in this competitive process was clear from our first call. His focus is on helping each applicant he works with to tell his or her unique story in the most compelling, articulate, and impressive way through every component of the application: the reference letters, the resume, the ...

  • Admitted to my dream school
    1 year ago
    I had a great experience working with Tyler. Our initial conversations started early in February / March for an August / September Round 1 submittal. From the beginning, Tyler put in the effort to understand my unique trajectory. In return, I was very thoughtful in answering his questions / organizing my information in our shared Google doc. Tyler was quick to pick up on my strengths / weaknesses and differentiating qualities. I was sometimes surprised how aligned we were on what made me me. Other times, I was surprised (but thrilled) when he discovered something that was so clear, but I had never considered. Our exchanges came to a head when we started to write essays over the summer. This is arguably one of the ...

  • The best decision I have ever made
    2 years ago
    I am currently attending UCLA Anderson School of Management, thanks to Tyler. I applied to 4 top schools with Tyler, and got admits from 2 with great scholarship. Looking back, this is the best decision I have made in my application process. Having a very traditional background from India, I clearly lacked the leadership and diverse skills that MBA schools look for. When I had my first call with Tyler, he clearly listened to my experience and laid a solid plan to move forward. He brought out the best in my stories and tailored them to each school. He weaved in stories from my personal life, which I never thought would make it to admission essays. In spite of his hectic schedule, Tyler made himself ...
