I walked into the application process with a respectable GMAT score, a strong (albeit non-traditional) resume, and years of professional writing experience, but I quickly found that it takes a trained eye and unique skill set to turn those credentials into the perfect business school application. Though Mollie and I initially butted heads a bit as I resisted some of her edits, she remained patient and understanding until I was fully comfortable with the content in my application while also remaining sensitive to the best way to tell my story to win the heart of the admissions board. I was offered several incredible opportunities and scholarships, but ultimately have found my home at the Stanford GSB. The fit is seamless and I could not be more grateful.
I got admitted to HBS today, and I am beyond ecstatic.
I wanted to thank you and the Expartus team for helping me achieve my dream!
I also wanted to let you know that Aly was amazing. I couldn’t have asked for a better advisor, confidant, and supporter. She was with me every step of the way, and spent many late nights listening to me, advising me, and editing my essays. You have an incredible team and I feel very lucky to have worked with her. Thank you again.
EXPARTUS® was able to identify unique aspects of my story and help me sell myself through strong essays which resulted in admission at MIT, Columbia and Wharton with a Joseph Wharton Fellowship.
Thanks EXPARTUS® for your professionalism, dedication and willingness to ‘go the extra mile’ for each client!
Distilling a winding life into a few hundred words is no easy feat. I called EXPARTUS® for guidance. With just a few hours of guidance, I knew exactly what I had to do.
They helped me focus my story and tie it to the unique personality of each school. Yesterday, I received a letter from Stanford, my dream school, inviting me to be a member of the class of 2012. Thank you EXPARTUS®.
The result was an application that was 100% genuine and written from my heart. EXPARTUS® insight into the admissions process, coupled with their ability to brand clients, is unmatched.
EXPARTUS® helped me in maneuvering around some of my weaknesses that stem from my European background, like little work and volunteer experience for my age. Without the expertise and energy of EXPARTUS®, I doubt that I would have been accepted to Duke and Tuck
Like many of my fellow applicants, I had the generic business school background: Ivy League graduate, economics major, and Wall Street.
I had disparate community oriented activities with some leadership experience, a mediocre GMAT score, and only two years of work experience. EXPARTUS® was an absolute Godsend with a wealth of resources at its disposal.
With my GMAT score at that time, I was not even close to the lower GMAT range for most of the top 25 business schools. Ready to give up on the GMAT, EXPARTUS® encouraged me to take the exam one more time and my score increased significantly. Being the introspective type, I thought that I knew myself like the back of my hand.
However, utilizing EXPARTUS®’ strategies and exercises, I was forced to dig deeper helping me to find a stronger inner voice and self-confidence, not to mention a common theme that bound all my seemingly disparate experiences into a unique, personable and heartfelt story. I got into a number of business schools, including my top choice.
“It was great speaking with you yesterday. I found our time together very valuable — you provided me with more constructive feedback in those two hours than I received all of last year. I left our conversation confident about what I need to focus on this time around. I signed up for the clear choice comprehensive package and am looking forward to working with you and your team. I believe that EXPARTUS can help me present a strong and cohesive application.”
I wanted to email to let you know this past weekend I captured a very prestigious full scholarship to Darden School of Business at UVA! I am beside myself with excitement.
As this process winds down and the next one begins I wanted to take time to thank Adaobi, my advisor, and Expartus. The past 7 months have been packed with more growth than the previous 27 years of my life. I cannot help but realize the enormous impact you have had on my life.
When I spoke to the other candidates throughout the entire application process at all my schools I saw enormous potential in each, but they lacked the focus of distinct goals, the advantage of a personal brand, and the understanding of their personal achievements in the context of the next steps. All things you helped me develop, which placed me light years ahead of my competitors.
However, this was not a “one and done” process. I will carry the tools and thought process of Expartus with me throughout my career. I know whatever twist and turn my career takes henceforth I will be prepared!
My advisor was highly experienced and very insightful and was always willing to provide candid, meaningful feedback.
Ultimately, the EXPARTUS® experience provided an excellent opportunity to introspect and played a key role in gaining acceptance to my school of choice.
