I wanted to reach out and share that the impossible just became possible, because I was offered admission to MIT's TIES Program!!!! There have been a lot of happy tears on my end as I still try to process this news (I was still in the process of processing the fact I was invited to an interview), but IT'S HAPPENING :)
I really cannot thank you enough for taking the time out of your busy schedule to have those video calls in sharing your expertise on the interview process. I think the one thing I have always struggled with was in simply selling myself. I still sometimes see myself as that student who was always trying to catch up to the level of knowledge my peers had. I didn't have that parent or role model to help me figure out the next best step in my career...but, somehow I made it, and I am beyond excited to have this opportunity to enter a PhD program finally equipped to not constantly feel like I am in catch-up mode, and finally able to focus my 100% attention on my studies and research. There was nothing I wanted more than to have that.
Your advice and support meant the world to me! I will never forget this.
My apologies for the delayed response; Work has been busy and I wanted to take the time to write a response and personally thank you and your team for everything...
This is a time for all of us to celebrate. I truly appreciate your team at Accepted. I really could not have done it without Natalie. She really knew how to pull the best out of me and how to position my experiences in a way that fits the culture and values of each school.
I am not sure if she told you this, but before I reached out to Accepted, I had talked to other consultants from other companies, and almost all would say that I didn’t even have a chance for any of the M7 schools. Natalie was the only one who not only believed in me but also encouraged me to apply to Stanford even though I was against it at first, because I thought that my chances were slim, at best. It’s unbelievable to think that I would not have applied to Stanford if it wasn’t for her!!
I just want to thank you and your team and Natalie for all your support. I had such an amazing experience working with Natalie. After working with someone from another consulting company last year, I was hesitant to take a chance on a different consulting company, but I took a risk and it was the best decision I made. She changed my view of this type of service and the impact it can make on someone’s life. I already have recommended her to some friends of mine who were thinking of applying for an MBA.
It’s been a pleasure working with your company and I’m forever thankful.
Dear Linda, I came across Accepted.com by coincidence when searching for business school forums. This accident, however, was the best decision I have ever made. I worked with two of your consultants, Todd and Natalie, for assistance with my applications for Booth and Johnson, respectively. Todd was incredibly helpful and went above and beyond to help me with my waitlist materials during weekends, nights, and even over the Memorial Day holiday. I was given only 7 days to prepare all of my documents, and I wouldn’t have been able to get through that extremely stressful time period without Todd’s timely assistance and great advice. Todd referred me to Natalie, and I could not be happier that he did. When I came to Natalie, I was in desperate need for interview prep and I was struggling with convincing the school that I would succeed in their program despite my below-average GMAT score. With Natalie’s dedication and creative talents, she helped me nail my interview, reframe my strategy, and, a few days later, gain acceptance into the school! I owe this exciting new phase in my life to Natalie, because I know my application would not have been as strong without her help. Overall, I’m truly blessed to have worked with Todd and Natalie. They are stellar, and I will be sure to refer any friends to them. Please feel free to use my comments for the website.
Hi Natalie, I wanted to take a moment and thank you for helping me out this year. With an extremely low GMAT, below average GPA and degree from a low ranked university, I am extremely blessed to be attending a top business school. This shows that with hard work and an amazing support cast like you, ANYTHING is possible in this world. My admission would not have happened without your guidance. I hired you as a consultant in January not knowing that you will also turn out to be a doctor and an angel. I will always be grateful for everything you have done for me this year. I know I asked you million questions over the past 10 months, some intelligent, but mostly silly and you were always gracious in providing a valuable answer. Please let me know if can be of any help. If you have any future clients who wants to connect with a Duke MBA, please send them my way. Please keep in touch!
I have received an admit from the EWMBA program at Berkeley Haas. It feels great to accomplish this goal; I couldn’t have achieved it without your help, guidance and personal attention to my campaign. Thank you for everything, and tell your current prospects they are in good hands!
I'm really excited to be going to Stanford. You probably hear this a lot, but Natalie was really helpful! In all the interviews I had, there wasn't a single question that I wasn't ready for. I owe a large part of my success to her.
