As a former colleague, I can tell you her experience in MBA Admissions is second to none. She hasn't simply been an AdCom, she has been the head of one, which makes a world of difference if you compare that to a more junior adcom member.

If you have an opportunity to get someone's decades of MBA Admissions experience on your side, providing that you vibed well with them, which you did, it is not something that happens to many MBA candidates.
