Esmeralda is someone I will personally owe for a very long time; Feedback I received from the adcom was clear. I was admitted largely due to the context of my narrative and my essays and story; both of which Esmeralda helped me present most effectively. Esmeralda and Accepted are directly responsible for ensuring that I, as a unique candidate, presented the best story and value prop of me as an individual, which helped me gain admission to UCLA!

It's great to e-meet you! I had the pleasure of working with Michelle Stockman as my consultant and wanted to share a review about her.
Working with Michelle was a game-changer. She helped me pinpoint what motivates me professionally and then helped me turn that into powerful essays that landed me a full-tuition acceptance at Haas (which I accepted as you can see from my email address :)), a half-tuition acceptance at Yale SOM and an acceptance to UCLA Anderson. What stood out about Michelle is that she was very transparent with her feedback, which I loved, and was always available. Especially during the winter holidays I probably sent her a message on WhatsApp every day and she would always respond in a matter of minutes!
Thank you again for founding Accepted -- it helped me a lot in my MBA journey! I look forward to staying in touch with you and Michelle.
Thank you so much, it is very exciting news! Your online videos were very insightful and motivating. Esmeralda was amazing and really helped me shine. I appreciate all the help. We will be in touch.
Where do I even begin? Firstly, this isn’t my first time working with Esme on grad school applications. She also helped me get into Duke Fuqua’s MMS and UT Austin McCombs’s MSM programs last year. During my grad studies at Duke, I realized that I wanted to take on another, more specialized field of study, so I decided to try for a Business Analytics degree. Naturally, I asked Esme to help me with the process again. I chose to apply to three schools this year (I got gold packages for guidance throughout the entire process) but got my acceptance to UCLA’s MSBA before I submitted the last application. Frankly, we were a little less confident this year about applying in general, since there are so many applicants and I already have a master’s degree under my belt. I also don’t have a math/engineering/computer science background, which is what a lot of MSBA programs are looking for. But somehow, almost magically, I got into UCLA on some merit scholarship. All I can say is, Esme is AMAZING at what she does. The UCLA app was tough, consisting of four 500-750 word essays. I started applying a little less than a month before the second deadline, and upon seeing the length of the essays I was pretty put off and thought that it would be better for me to submit by the last deadline to have more time. However, Esme encouraged me to apply asap, saying that she had confidence in me to turn out an outstanding application. She’s so incredibly responsible in the sense that she doesn't stop pushing you until the essays are as good as they can be, not to mention she's extremely patient and understanding, so there's no shame in being a poor writer. Even after three, four, or sometimes even five rounds of editing, she’ll still look for ways to improve upon the writing. She knows what these business schools want in their applicants and will adeptly bring out all your strengths. Her experience with business-related graduate studies makes her the perfect consultant to go to because she also provides valuable advice on which programs and schools would be the best fit for you. I can say with confidence that if it wasn’t for Esme, I definitely would not have gotten into Duke or UCLA (again, both on merit scholarship (even though my undergrad GPA was not hot)!!) I don’t anticipate I’ll be applying to graduate school again anytime soon, but if I did, you know for sure I’ll ask for Esme’s help again, and if I have any friends who are applying, I’ll send them to Esme with no hesitation. Trust me when I say that it’s one of the best investments you’ll ever make toward your education!!
Rebecca, You helped me reach my goal of attending a top law program and forced me to answer important questions about what I wanted to get out of this opportunity. The process you exposed me to helped me realize what I wanted to accomplish these next few years and shed light on how to prepare for grant/application writing in the future. I can't thank you enough for that. The time and patience you shared with me will not be forgotten. - CM
