A little more in-depth

What I like most about being a Stratus Prep MBA Admissions Counselor:

Working with clients to further develop their self-awareness and career goals so that their resulting application stands out from the pack.

One piece of advice I would share with someone who is applying to business school:

You are more than the numbers. Know how an MBA is going to help you achieve your career goals and use all the parts of your application to convince admissions you are going to be a successful alum.

Highlight or greatest accomplishment while working with Stratus Prep:

One of my clients – a fantastic person with a compelling application – got into two of her top choices despite a GMAT score well below the average.

3 Random Facts:

– Each month, my partner and I randomly select one of the 257 countries of the world and cook a few of that country’s traditional recipes while listening to their local music.
– When I lived in India, I went on a pilgrimage with my coworkers – walking 100km (62 miles) in 48 hours with about 700,000 other Indians. I’ve never had more worthwhile blisters.
– I taught myself the banjo and have learned only that I should have taken lessons.
