  • Tyler Is A Master Craftsman
    5 months ago
    Coach, consultant, mentor, advisor... He may be called many things, but above all Tyler is a craftsman that knows his craft. After attempting (and failing) to get into business school the previous year, I decided to invest in my future and seek professional advice on my MBA applications. I found Tyler through the P&Qs website and was struck by how personable he was during our first conversation. I instantly connected with him and felt like I was just catching up with an old friend. He immediately saw my potential (unlike some other consultants I had reached out to) and shared my enthusiasm for taking on the H/S/W challenge. During the first couple weeks working together, I used Tyler's templates to share my life story ...

  • The Best MBA Admissions Consultant & So Much More
    6 months ago
    Tyler supported me through every step of the business school application process with a level of planning, tools, responsiveness, and empathy that far exceeded my expectations. From our first meeting, he helped me transform my non-traditional path to business school into a narrative that ultimately led me to be accepted to my dream school, HBS. Tyler breaks down the lengthy, sometimes overwhelming application process into manageable steps and is your unwavering guide, coach, supporter, and editor through everyone, whether it's updating your resume, organizing your story to write impactful essays, challenging you to think critically about your application strategy and career goals, writing those critical essays, preparing guidance documents for your references, or pushing you to be your very best for your interviews. When it came ...

  • Thoughtful, Patient, Responsive, & Flexible – The Perfect Consultant
    7 months ago
    Tyler was an amazing resource and partner throughout the entire MBA application process. I got a late start on round 1 applications with only 4 or 5 weeks to complete apps. Given the stress I was under, I decided to have an introductory conversation with Tyler on the advice of a friend (who actually didn't get into their top school, but still couldn't sing Tyler's praises enough). I spoke with a handful of consultants on introductory calls, most of whom either were quick to call out holes in my resume, unresponsive, entitled, or seemingly uninterested in the job they were asking ~$10k+ to do. Others were salesy and tried to emphasize how quickly I needed to sign / wire money to reserve a ...

  • Personal One-On-One Experience
    1 year 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
    1 year 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
    1 year 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!
    2 years 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
    2 years 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!
    2 years 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
    2 years 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 ...

    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
    3 years 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
    3 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 ...

    Tyler was an amazing coach to me throughout the entire business school application process. He forced me to really think through my story, my goals, and why I\'m applying to business schools. While this was extremely valuable for the applications, it was also helpful on a personal level as I was able to get more clarity on my long-term career goals. Even though hiring an admissions consultant is pricey, I absolutely think it was worth it. Tyler helped me put together the best possible application and helped me tailor it to each school. He also helped me with interview prep, which really helped ease my nerves on the day of. In the end, I was admitted to a top 5 school with a significant scholarship. ...

    I would highly recommend Tyler as an MBA consultant. With Tyler’s expertise and support, I had the privilege of receiving acceptances from 6 schools, including MIT, Wharton, Booth (with scholarship), Kellogg, Columbia, and Haas in round one! Prior to working with Tyler, I conducted research online and spoke to various consulting firms. Immediately after an hour-long conversation with Chris (another cofounder), I knew that MBA Prep School was exactly what I was looking for. Chris offered me solid advice on traits I should feature to different schools, insights on various MBA programs, and consultants I could potentially work with. I picked Tyler because I was looking for an experienced, professional consultant with a solid track record. Tyler and I began our work in June. We ...

  • To be the best, you must surround yourself with the very best
    4 years ago
    I saw Tyler as a coach and less as a consultant, and our interaction also reflected that. I was unsure on grad school and MBA, until a bunch of my Stanford Alumnus friends (GSB mostly) convinced me that Stanford is the right next step for me, a few visits to the school and dropping in on few classes had me convinced. This was late November with a deadline in January. With 6 weeks to go, I got Tyler's reference from one of the Stanford Alumnus who had played a big role in making the decision in the first place. Coming back to Tyler, he is the best coach one could ask for when applying to the best and the most selective business school - Stanford ...

    Having a very tight work schedule, I decided to look for an admissions consultant to guide me though the MBA admissions process. After browsing online for a few days and a couple of phone calls later, I decided that Tyler was the best fit for me because of his HBS/Creative Writing background. His very structured methodology allowed me to stay on top of my applications no matter how busy worked got, but also to get to know myself better and verbalize what I actually wanted from an MBA. As a career switcher I had a particularly hard time figuring out my career goals, but Tyler was very patient going back and forth with me until we got to a path that I’m definitely exploring during ...

    4 years ago
    I am admitted to HBS! Thank you for your support, counsel, and commitment, Tyler Cormney! What I liked most about Tyler’s approach to MBA consulting was that it was structured from beginning to end. He started by gaining an understanding of all aspects of my profile and helped me to identify the strongest messages to create my very personal, one-of-a-kind application. Additionally, his video lessons were great, allowing us to make the best use of our live sessions. Tyler’s commitment was remarkable: he would not give up until every point in my application was perfect – a truly hard working perfectionist! Finally, Tyler is incredibly patient, supportive, and positive. He would recognize when I struggled in-between applications and offer a constructive break. I never felt ...

  • Hands-down, my best decisions working with Tyler
    4 years ago
    Working with Tyler was the best decision I made while going through the MBA application process. With Tyler's help, I will be attending my top choice school at HBS this upcoming Fall! Background: I was referred to Tyler by a friend and I signed up for a package for a handful of schools. After a short phone call introduction, I could tell that Tyler was extremely qualified as an MBA consultant (an MBA from HBS and a Master's in Professional Writing from USC), but more importantly, that Tyler would be someone I could trust and easily relate with while navigating the stressful MBA application process. Process: I applied Round 1 and we started off early on in June and immediately Tyler and I began working ...

    Tyler is amazing and one of the best investments I ever made!!! I was referred to him by my good friend who had the best things to say (and who got into Booth and Sloan) and I never looked back. Tyler was not only my trusted adviser and strategist, but also a friend, mentor, and coach who provided motivation and structure, keeping me on track during the admissions process. I can truly say that I looked forward to my meetings with Tyler each and every week.

Tyler ensured that my story was kept consistent throughout my application package, across my resume, ...
