Going to HBS

Hannah

Los Angeles, CA

After less than two years of working in corporate strategy, Hannah decided that an MBA from a top-ranked school would be instrumental in helping achieve her goal of one day leading a top media and entertainment company. However, with limited work experience, she was unsure how to effectively demonstrate her leadership experience and potential. Hannah’s consultant helped her to hone-in on the aspects of her experience that were unique and best portrayed her natural leadership style and passion while also mitigating a technical weakness of her application – a low quant score on the GMAT. Hannah is happily headed to HBS this fall!

Melody & Meredith's Story

Almost a decade before we founded Vantage Point, we were colleagues on the 15th floor of a large investment bank and had decided that business school was the next step in our respective careers. Given the significance of this decision, we wanted to ensure that we were doing everything we could to gain admission to our dream schools. So, we partnered with great admissions consultants who provided invaluable insights and guidance, and couldn’t have been happier with the outcome. During and immediately after our two wonderful years in business school (Kellogg and Columbia), we started sharing what we had learned with other applicants and became admissions consultants and alumni interviewers ourselves. We became passionate about making the application process more productive and efficient for others and founded Vantage Point with the mission of creating a firm that focused on excellence in every aspect of the process: the consultants, the guidance, and the tools. As such, we have built an outstanding team of not only experienced consultants and former admissions directors from top 10 MBA programs but also an advisor network of current MBA students and post-MBA professionals at some of the top companies in the world. We’ve been proud to be a part of the successful journeys of many clients over the years and are looking forward to helping you too!

Going to Kellog

Alyssa

Chicago, IL

As a reapplicant to Kellogg, Alyssa knew that she’d need to focus on explaining how she’s improved her application over the last year. In addition, after multiple attempts at the GMAT, Alyssa felt that taking the GMAT again was futile; so she needed to adequately mitigate her GMAT score, which was well below the average. She and her Vantage Point consultant worked to ensure that her goals were clearly articulated as well as how she’d advanced in her career and aspirations since her first time applying. She was also advised to take additional coursework that helped the admissions committee understand that she could handle the academics despite her GMAT score. Alyssa is now a student at Kellogg!

Working with Vantage Point gave me perspective on myself as a candidate and helped me develop my story. My consultant provided the advice I needed to not only gain admission, but receive a full scholarship to a top-tier MBA program.

Katherine - thanks a lot for all the guidance! I really think my acceptance to Wharton would have been impossible without your help.

I can't say enough about my positive experience with Melody. She was to-the-point and always available. I'm happy to note that I received 4 acceptances (of 6 schools applied), with merit scholarships to all! Long story short: Best investment ever!

Melody went above and beyond to help me tell my story in an authentic and compelling way, pushing me to explore my own motivations and aspirations. Ultimately, I was admitted to Columbia! Thank you for everything, Melody!

With the help of Meredith, I was accepted into NYU Stern with a full scholarship for the first year! As I had less than two years of work experience, Meredith helped me identify my strengths and differentiators.

,,

Meredith answered all of my crazy/paranoid questions promptly and prepared me incredibly well for my interview. I highly recommend using her! I don’t know that I’d be starting at HBS in the fall without her.

,,

I had only applied to two schools, Harvard Business School & Wharton, and as a result of my consultant’s thoughtful guidance and feedback, I was fortunate enough to have received admission into both schools.

,,

Meredith coached me very well and we clarified the points and stories I should focus on and what the final messages should be. I look forward to matriculating at Wharton in the fall of 2015!

,,

Melody was a great match for my application to business school. She does not sugar coat any part of the application and provides hands-on assistance that expands well beyond essays. I highly recommend her!

,,

Melody has been a tremendous help throughout my application process and in making my ultimate decision to attend Wharton. She has extensive knowledge on what the top schools are looking for!

,,

Meredith answered all of my questions promptly and prepared me incredibly well for my interview. I highly recommend using her! I don’t know that I’d be starting at HBS in the fall without her.

I am very happy with my results - I’m officially a dual admit at both HBS and Stanford! Meredith pushed me to get the most out of my essays and her interview prep was spot on. I highly recommend Meredith!
