Working with Accepted, in particular with Esmeralda, was the best decision prior to my application to the Yale School of Management. Given her previous experience at the Admissions Committee of Yale SOM, Esmeralda provides a unique feedback all over the admission process. We worked together for more than 2 months in which I was able to see first hand the progress of my application. From the very beginning we scheduled 2-3 revisions per week, which allowed me to get a better sense of what Yale was expecting from me as a Candidate. I would say that Esmeralda was a key part of my successful admission process. I recommend Accepted and Esmeralda 100%, without a doubt.

When I first considered applying to graduate programs, I was worried that my low undergraduate GPA and lack of research experience would prevent me from being admitted into a good program. Dr. Ash was extremely patient and took time to get to know me, my academic history and career goals and helped me to write strong statements of purpose that conveyed my strengths as an applicant. Her input and review of my statements allowed me to be representative of my own experiences and goals, but also to do so in a way that catered to the program that I was applying to. With her help and support, I was accepted into all of the programs that I applied to, including the Quantitative Analytics in Education program at the University of Virginia and the Learning Analytics program at the University of Wisconsin – Madison. It was truly a privilege to work with Dr. Ash, and her guidance was invaluable to my application experience!   - Angela

Hello Barry,

I hope you are doing well! I wanted to let you know .... I was accepted to UCLA, USC, UOP, and OHSU [dental schools]. I have been very torn between deciding on a school, as those were all my top choices....

Thank you for all your help, I truly couldn't have done it without you.
