Successful Results

“With Margaret by my side, applying to business schools was a much more structured process. The free-flowing brainstorming sessions combined with Margaret’s keen intuition were immensely helpful in identifying the core ideas that would form the crux of my essays. She made sure I allocated sufficient time for every stage of the application, from the short answers to interview prep. I would highly recommend Margaret’s highly personalized approach to business school applications for any serious applicant.”

“What really stood out for me was our collaborative effort on the essays. At first I was confused, unable to structure my thoughts, and reluctant to share my ideas. But, the friendly approach soon put me at ease and we brainstormed topics for essay prompts that were distinctive about me. They were always ready with suggestions for improvements, which I found immensely useful. Thanks once again for helping me out.”
