I hope you're doing well. Wanted to drop you a line saying hi from Yale and to let you know my first few months at the SOM have been awesome! As you can probably imagine, it's been a whirlwind of academics/socializing. I'm now looking forward to finishing my core courses to hit the ground running on data science electives across the university. I feel like the flexibility offered by the SOM, and the general open-mindedness I come across here make it the best MBA for me.
My small cohort includes a Google software manager, a SpaceX mechanical engineer, a Goldman Sachs I-banker, several McKinsey consultants, a NASA executive, an active duty Navy Seal, a chess grandmaster, many incredible non-profit founders/managers, and everything. Thank you again for helping me get here.
Wishing you and your family all the best as we enter into the holidays
I graduated MIT EMBA last year. It was one of the best two years of my life. I am so happy I chose that program and I thank you for helping me get in! 😊
I wanted to let you know that I finally heard back from the Marshall school of Business and I was admitted for spring of 2024! I am super excited! I want to thank you again for all of your help and guidance that made the college-application and decision process so much easier. I wish you all the best and will continue to update you on my USC journey!
Natalie, I have decided to attend USC. Thanks again for everything. USC seemed like such a long shot for me when we started, but you believed in me the entire time. Your edits were so thoughtful and your expertise was just what I needed to make it into my dream school. I couldn't have done it without your help!!!
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.
