Going to HBS
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!
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
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!
