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.


Thanks to Cara and Shimon I was able to improve my GMAT score from 680 to 710 in just two weeks. I would highly recommend Cara and Shimon to anyone doing GMAT. 


Sue inspired my best efforts and celebrated with me in my successes. Sue played a huge role in my final GMAT score (770), as well as the TOEFL examination  


Absolute Admissions assisted me in researching the Business Schools that would suit my profile, my ambitions and desired specialization. From the research we conducted together, I was able to narrow down my research from over 40 potential international schools down to 4 in the USA.
