Thank you for helping me gain admission to my #1 choice MBA program: Columbia Business School! I am thrilled to be going there, and this opportunity is a dream come true.”

Columbia Business School Admit

Thank you sincerely for your support and guidance throughout the year. Our work together meant more to me than an application to school. You encouraged me to look inside myself in a way that I think I deeply needed. Through our conversations and guided reflection, I became re-empowered in my life, my decisions, and my future. You once described my life as a mosaic – I can’t wait to add the next tile! Thank you again from the bottom of my heart.”

Thank you so much for all your help this year, as you helped me reflect internally on the type of person I want to become. That process not only helped me with my applications, but will also influence my decisions for the rest of my life.”

Kellogg MBA Admit

Thank you for all of your incredible support in the MBA application process. I truly don’t think I could have had the results I did without you. And I certainly would not have had the same peace of mind. Throughout the process you were so thoughtful, precise, kind, and thorough. You are an amazing listener and were critical in helping me find and articulate my own voice.”

Thank you so much for your support throughout the business school application process, and for helping me achieve my dream. I cannot thank you enough for your guidance and for the care you brought to each of our conversations. I enjoyed being able to think introspectively about my values and life goals alongside you. Your words of encouragement will continue to stick with me as I go through school and my career.”

2020 wasn’t easy for enough reasons already, but you have made mine so incredibly easier. I don’t think I could have gotten through applications without your unwavering support and encouragement. Regardless of the outcome, I can’t thank you enough for everything.”

Stanford GSB MBA Admit

I truly believe that my interactions with all of you not only provided a foundation for the application creation, but also, and more importantly, structured a platform for MY life at business school and beyond. I’m geared up for the next two years in large part because I was able to relate through my application and interviews who I am and what I hope to become. Thank you all for a phenomenal experience and I hope we continue to stay in touch into the future.”

I can’t thank you enough for all of your help throughout this process. Thank you for pushing me and for supporting me – I couldn’t have done it without you.

Words really cannot express my gratitude to you. In finding you, I could not have asked for a better advisor, confidant, and advocate in this process. Your patience was comforting and your gentle pushes were just what the doctor ordered. You encouraged me to confront my beliefs and my aspirations in an uncomfortable, but incredibly safe environment.

You challenged me to dig deeper and unearth aspects of me that I keep hidden, but that the world deserves to see. You never wavered in your commitment to me and my application. Your willingness to take the late or early phone call to accommodate me was so generous. I really cannot imagine going through this process without you. Your direction, belief, and high-bar drove me to bring my best self to work with you each day.

Attending Stanford has really been a lifelong dream of mine. And to this day, I have never really thought that dream was attainable, but you put me in the best position possible to achieve it.

Thank you from the bottom of my heart for your help in getting me this far. I hope that our journey together is just beginning and that you have many more pearls of wisdom to bestow upon me.”

HBS MBA Admit

HBS said to save this card for someone special who helped me along my journey, and I couldn’t think of anyone better. I can’t thank you enough for the past year… It has been a wild ride to say the least. From laughing, to crying, to feeling anxious, frustrated, worried, demoralized, and tired (many nights of insomnia…) to finally feeling elated. There is one thing that is crystal clear – that I couldn’t have done it without you. You’re an absolute wizard at your craft and a genius at storytelling. You were more than an advisor, you were my teacher, therapist, life coach, friend, mentor and greatest support system. Thank you for always believing in me and giving me the confidence to succeed. I will be forever grateful for you and all that you have given me.”

Hi Marie, Maureen, & Lisa!

Two friends and I just wanted to share a little update from us! We recently realized that all three of us wouldn’t be here at the GSB without the three of you.

We were in the same T-group during Touchy Feely last spring and were all Arbuckle Fellows this past year together. We were even in the same Lead Labs squad the first quarter as MBA1s! I hosted them for dinner earlier this month and we learned that we all have you three to thank for us being all together in this amazing place.

Little did we know, our journey together at the GSB started long before we even met on campus. We just wanted to share our immense gratitude for your help with not only our applications, but also in our development as people (and now as friends!).”

I hope you are well! I just wanted to thank you again for all your advice and the time spent over the last few months guiding me through my business school application process. I really enjoyed working with you as I crafted my application and Lisa’s advice during the mock interview was spot on. Specifically, thank you for keeping me organized amidst all the craziness and for being flexible. I can sincerely say that the experience not only challenged me to think about my story from a fresh lens, but also equipped me with the knowledge to tackle business school and beyond. I would not have been admitted to the Stanford GSB, my dream school, without you, and I truly appreciate it.”

The encouragement and support you’ve provided throughout the entire process has truly been above & beyond – I couldn’t have done it without you.”
Is there anything that I can do to pay it forward to you / The Admission Advisory Group going forward? You have been such an incredible resource for me and would love help in any way that I can!

USC Marshall Admit

I had a great experience with The Admission Advisory Group. The advice that I received was extremely valuable in helping me select schools and successfully complete the application process. I will definitely recommend The Admission Advisory Group to others in the future.”
