What Our Grad School Clients Say

We bet you're thinking, "Well they sound good, but what do their clients say?" Do Accepted's consultants really improve client essays and boost their chances of acceptance?

See what our clients say here! They're not shy about sharing their feedback, and neither are we!

Carol is kind, personable, knowledgeable, and she works so hard to make sure that every detail of your application is perfected. She gets to know who you are as a person so that your application is not only the best that it can be, but also an accurate representation of who you are. The application process is always stressful, but Carol was there to support me and help me when I felt discouraged or confused. I highly recommend working with her, she’s awesome!

I was an international student applying for masters' programs in US universities. Philippe provided so much help, not only revising my application materials but also gave me advice on how to approach professors. I got accepted into many programs, but more importantly into my dream program at Georgetown University. He was very helpful and very thorough, always making sure that my voice was being heard and expressed in the best possible manner. The things I learned with him go beyond the application process and I will always carry them with me. I would not hesitate to recommend Phillipe to anyone that is looking for excellence.

It was a very competitive year. Each school got about 300 more applications.... Also, you were amazing to work with. We got 4 essays done on a holiday week! Thank you so much for your assistance and patience. I really couldn't have done it without you. Thank you so much. -- Accepted to 2 PsyD programs.

I worked with Barry on my application to a Post Bacc program. As a result of his guidance and hard work, I am currently in the program of my choosing and well on my way to applying to becoming a non traditional medical school applicant! As a “career changer”, the prospect of entering the medical field is intimidating and unfamiliar. I have no family or friends that work in medicine. The daunting application process certainly doesn’t help. Barry served as an invaluable resource for me. He was able to demystify what post bacc programs appreciate in their applicants and identify what attributes made me competitive. He is also an excellent writer which was SO HELPFUL. I gave him about 5 pages worth of nonsense stream of consciousness which he somehow managed to magically turn it into a concise (yet compelling) personal statement. I am extremely grateful that I took the leap and made the investment as I know I would not have been in this program if it weren’t for him.


Barry is compassionate, insightful, diligent, and just generally a very pleasant person. You will love him! And the difference he will make to your application, and ultimately your future, is priceless. - Anna

Hi Rachel,

I'm happy to let you know that I got accepted to Georgetown's MA program! They offered decent merit aid plus an assistantship, and I actually just paid the seat deposit today (which reminded me of your message).

I wanted to thank you for your wonderful help with my whole application, and the personal statement in particular.  The writing process that you guided me through was invaluable in teaching me to communicate big ideas through the lens of my own personal story in a way that resonates. More than just a one-off essay, that discovery has continued to pay dividends, giving me the skills to create compelling narratives that build bridges between life experience and academic interests.

Thanks again,
Michael

Working with Dr. Rothman was instrumental to my success during my PhD interviews. We began to work together with limited time, just a few days before my interviews were scheduled, and Dr. Rothman was very flexible in working around my tight timeline. I also began the process low on confidence and high on anxiety: The pandemic had cut short my research experience, which anyone applying to PhD programs knows is typically the most important element of your application.

Dr. Rothman is not only highly knowledgeable about the application process in general but is also himself a trained biomedical researcher. He knew exactly what kinds of questions I was likely to be asked, and his scientific background allowed him to probe expertly into my research interests.

During our first meeting, he was able to quickly identify where my preparation was lacking, and which areas my interviewers were likely to focus on. He pushed me to better understand the broader narratives and goals of the projects I was involved in rather than simply my individual role within those projects. He also reminded me to always slow down and breathe!

With Dr. Rothman’s help, I had just enough time to complete my preparation and I entered my interviews calm and confident. I was admitted to my top choice PhD program.
