I started to consider MBA pretty late while working long hours (early-Nov kind of late we are talking about here), but thankfully Kathryn was the first consultant I called and I decided to go with her almost right away. I was combating some traumatizing life crises personally during the application process. Kathryn, a strong, smart and experienced consultant, at times had to step in and guide me to stay on track. I would not say it was a completely smooth ride – we definitely had disagreements at times and there was some hiccup towards the end. However I think for the most part Kathryn is probably as much you could ever ask for a consultant – honest, effective, dedicated and intuitive. The only thing I wished differently was that I should have started my process wayyy earlier rather than cramming for my essays especially for one particular school. Yet, I was able to get into all the schools except one with Kathryn’s help. I would recommend Kathryn to anyone who needs an MBA consultant.
