Admissions consulting

What does a good admissions consultant do for you?

We advise and support you through your application. We will help you avoid red flags, craft your application strategy and work hand-in-hand with you. You will need to take responsibility for the process and put in the work and research time.

Here are some benefits to having a good admissions consultant in your corner:

  • We are honest with you 

A good admissions consultant is someone you can be honest with about your hopes and fears. And someone who can give you good advice if you listen. We can also give you the off-the-record info about business schools that can help you make decisions around what will be one of the biggest investments of your life. 

  • We help you put your best foot forward 

Many of us hate to brag and fear coming across as arrogant. But the admissions process requires that you highlight your accomplishments. It can be very helpful to get the balance right with another person listening – and sometimes pointing out achievements you didn’t realize were so impressive. 

  • We give you support and help you to introspect 

You might be surprised how personal and introspective the process of telling your story actually is. Your admissions essays need to highlight your character, your brains, heart and courage. Talking through ideas can be immensely helpful. Talking to someone also helps to keep you feeling supported and on track. 

  • We help you explain your career goals and what you do for a living  

Many CVs are filled with jargon and acronyms, and lack the context that can make your experience shine.  

  • We make sure you have thought through your reasons for wanting to go to business school 

By the time you hit the admissions interview, you should have really thought through why you want to study, why you want to go to a particular university, why you want to do this now, and how it will help you achieve your goals.

What People Say

 Absolute Admissions played a pivotal role in helping me get accepted into a Master In Management at HEC Paris and Yale. As my GRE score was lower than the average score at both schools and the program was highly competitive, I realized that I needed to craft a stellar application to stand a chance of gaining acceptance.


Throughout the entire process, Cara made me think more deeply about why the master’s program was an ideal fit for me and how I could best communicate this to the admissions officers at both universities. 

Thank you for helping me get accepted into my dream program- I couldn’t have done it without your help and support!



I cannot thank you enough for working so hard with me, am truly blessed to have you as my coach.  


 There are also some scholarships included. The advice and classes were really the backbone of my applications. Thank you very much.
