"Haas has been great; I interned at one of the MBB consultancies in the summer which I really enjoyed and ended up working part-time for a VC, which I am currently doing during term time. I've enjoyed the VC experience but think I am going to go with the consultancy so that I can get that under my belt for a few years. Thanks again with the application, I'm definitely glad I came out here and I couldn't have done it without your help" -- From former client in 2nd year of MBA program.

Hi Keith,

Hope you have been well.  Due in no small part to your guidance, I have been accepted to both Anderson and Marshall.  A heartfelt thank you for helping me achieve my goal.

Philippe Barr View Philippe Barr's Bio

I wanted to offer some thoughts on working with Philippe Barr through the whole process. In summary, Philippe helped me with 3/4 of my essays and a quick resume scan. I applied to Stanford, Harvard, Wharton, and MIT Sloan, and was accepted to three, waitlisted at Stanford. 

I'd highly recommend Philippe across the board. Stylistically, he was exactly what I was looking for. In email communication and when I had a few follow up questions, he was very kind and personable. But, as I had hoped, his markups of my essays were not "sugar-coated" at all - he provided very direct and honest feedback. For some, this may be uncomfortable, but for me it was exactly what I needed - it helped me trust his comments and really reassess my approach when I needed to. His approach is exactly as mine would be - start with high level themes and then refine specifics/details once the structure feels good. Much more efficient. 

Furthermore, in a more nuanced way, Philippe was very low-ego. Often, editors can be very stiff and inflexible - when they give a recommendation they expect it to be taken, and in subsequent versions may have difficulty accepting a rejection of their comment. I never had this problem with Philippe - when I disagreed with his comments, we discussed why, and then moved on to the broader themes of the essay. So, I felt respected as a partner and we always were very efficient. 

Lastly, turnaround and response time was incredible.
