I’m very excited to announce the launch of our new online MBA admissions app! It will keep us in closer sync with our clients through the constant changes in application plans that almost everyone experiences. It will also save us a lot of time by hosting all the most important application-related information for each school in one place.
I always thought of this website primarily as an application resource for my clients and for MBA applicants more broadly, so for many years and for an untold number of hours, I’ve painstakingly updated it with deadlines, essays, letter of recommendation questions, and analyses. I knew there was a better way, and this year I finally dusted off my programming skills and got it done. We now have the shared tool that I’ve wanted for a long time.
In addition to allowing our clients to track and update their own information (including target schools and target deadlines — see screen shot below) instead of relying on email updates, the app includes an ever-expanding table of schools that can be sorted by name or ranking (FT or US News — see screen shot below). And by clicking on the school name, users will be taken to a School Details page with all the deadlines, essay questions, and LOR questions (see screen shot below). It only takes me a few minutes to update each school instead of an hour, so we can spend more time delving into the rich lives of our clients and helping them discover and craft their best stories and their most comprehensive and integrated application sets, all for the purpose of leading them to success beyond test scores.
I’ll continue to add features and functions to the app, including a mobile version, so I won’t be updating this website like before. (In fact, we’ll be redoing the website completely.) The app will only be available to our clients for the time being, but we are offering a limited trial period for anyone who signs up for a trial consultation.
