    The Best Of The Best

    In the winter of 2023, I had the privilege to work with Esmeralda Cardenal after I decided to apply to an Executive graduate business program. The application process is daunting, and I felt overwhelmed and lost.

    My native language is not English, and I was nervous about several aspects including a potential career transition, the financial burden that comes with an academic commitment, the competition and all its related stress, the economic turnaround and its consequences, etc.

    Esmeralda was a gift from God in this journey: not only does she know the application process very well but she is also keen on sharing her life experience to offer helpful guidance throughout the difficult process.

    I am lucky to have worked with her. Esmeralda was able to point to all the inconsistencies and open questions in my file and made me grow more and more confident as we got closer to the deadline. Esmeralda is rigorous, organized, proactive, fast and results driven.

    I was sad at the end of our collaboration because it was a true pleasure to work with her. I would rehire her in a heartbeat because I was accepted in the program of my choice thanks to Esmeralda !

    Quite An Effective Counsellor

    Ms. Esmeralda is one of the most wonderful counsellors I have ever met in the past. Because I could get the admission of EMBA from M7. Although she was a little bit objective comments where I had some negative impressions, she always shared her analysis whether to get the admission or not and visualizes my roadmap to get the admission by supporting of my crafting essay and guiding how to tackle on the interview. I recommend the applicant to experience her service. I am sure you shall be screened by her experiences whether to get the admission. If you gain her negative comment, don't worry, she can give you the obvious roadmap to achieve the business school criteria for your admitted.

    So Lucky I Found Esmeralda!!

    I was laid off from a global technology company earlier this year and decided very last minute to apply to business school. I knew I needed the help of a seasoned advisor to guide me through the already daunting MBA application process – especially one who could provide focus and insight in a very short time. Esme was responsive, adaptable, and encouraging. She worked with me to apply to 3 schools in less than 2 months (I wouldn’t recommend doing this, but if you do, you’ll need Esmeralda’s help!) If you are looking for an advisor who keeps it real and is supportive and patient – work with her! She provided me with very succinct and structured insights throughout while also allowing flexibility to bounce ideas and brainstorm. Unlike other consultants, she was very aware and thoughtful about using our time (and my investment) efficiently which I really appreciated. I was accepted at Cornell Johnson (with significant scholarship), Oxford Said, and was waitlisted at Kellogg thanks to my time with Esme. Her results speak for themselves!!

    I could finally get the admission of Booth !! I really appreciate your dedicated support of your effective strategy to reach the goal in one of the shortest ways. 
    I just wanted to update you that I heard back from the Stanford GSB, and they've accepted me into the deferred MBA program! I've accepted the offer of admission. Thank you so much for all of your help through this process in enabling me to present the best version of my story to the admissions committee. I really appreciate your support with my application.
    Just wanted to write to you to let you know that I was accepted to the CS@CU MS Bridge program at Columbia University this past Thursday. I am absolutely stoked to attend as it was my dream school/program and I couldn't have done it without your help editing my essay and coaching. I felt really confident submitting my application, and definitely felt like I had put my best foot forward. Thank you so much for everything, once again.
