How the Team Concept Works

Your Stratus team consists of 5 members plus you.

Each team member has an expertise in a specific area. Your Primary Counselor holds an MBA from a top program.


Your Primary Counselor is matched with you based on your profile. They provide you with expert guidance throughout the entire MBA application process. They work side-by-side with you through the pre application, application and post application stages of the process. They will help you find the school that best fits your experience and values, the school that will prepare you to reach your goals!


Your MBA Strategist, also a top MBA, provides additional insight and guidance at key points in the process. Once you and your Primary Counselor have developed your Personal MBA Strategy, you will have a joint call to review your goals and strategy. Your MBA Strategist reviews your outlines for each program to ensure that you are executing on your strategy and that the content matches what each school is looking for.


Your School Specific Reviewers provide ‘blind’ feedback on your essays; meaning they are not familiar with your story and only have your resume and essays. Each School Specific Reviewer is either a graduate of that school or is intimately familiar with the programs for which they review essays. If you are applying to four MBA programs, you will likely have four different School Specific Reviewers on your team. The School Specific Reviewer will look at your essays when they are near their final form and use tracking changes to provide insider feedback to ensure that your essays connect with the specific school as it relates to content and tone. You and your Primary Counselor will use this feedback to ensure your essays resonate with each of your target MBA programs.


Your qualified proofreader is a professional who edits your resume and essays. When your Primary Consultant feels that each essay is ready to submit, they will send it to the proofreader. The proofreader will do a final read for flow, grammatical errors and typos. The qualified proofreader ensures you have a polished final product by deadline and can press “submit” with confidence!


Your Client Relationship Manager is your personal touchstone throughout the process. If you ever have questions about the process or your service, your Manager can take care of it. We know how difficult the application process can be, that’s why have a team member devoted to simply ensuring all of your logistical and service needs are met!
