Give your application a competitive edge
Give your application a competitive edge
The Admission Concierge is a boutique-sized, one-on-one approach, consulting service specialized in admissions in MBA and MS in Business programs. We guide you through the entire process, from school selection to crafting a persuasive application that highlights your uniqueness, and interview prep.
The Admission Concierge was founded by Loubna, former director of MBA admissions, with a specific goal in mind: To use her in-depth knowledge of the industry to help candidates craft a successful application:
"I spent several years of working with applicants from diverse backgrounds who are pursuing their dreams of attending a top MBA program, I know the admissions process inside and out, I want to use this knowledge to give my clients a competitive edge."
There is no simple formula to getting admitted into a top MBA program. A high GMAT and GPA, or years of work experience are important, but may not be sufficient to gain access to an elite institution. Most schools, including top 10 programs, are taking a holistic approach in their admission process and seeking individuals that will bring a new perspective to classroom discussions.
Together, we will cover not only the written application and interview process, but also the steps you can take to build your personal brand.
Our services include:
1. We understand the power of a strong narrative
Your GMAT scores and GPA help admission officers determine your academic strength and eligibility. However, business schools take a holistic approach in their selection process. Your essay and interview performance, for example, can truly make or break your application.The Admission Concierge will help you get an edge on competition by helping you choose the right school and craft an application that truly highlights you strengths and uniqueness.
2. We offer a personalized service
We don't believe in cookie-cutter approach when it comes admissions consulting, we carefully select candidates we believe in and create a personalized road map to success. Because our services are personalized we work with a limited number of clients every year in order to maximize time and attention to each person.
3. We welcome non-traditional applicants
Many of our clients don’t have a traditional business background and get accepted to top MBA programs. These applicants have some special considerations they should keep in mind as they work through the application process. Your unique perspective can actually be an advantage! Let us help you articulate your own perspective and potential contribution to a graduate business program.
Choosing an MBA program that fits your profile and career goals can be a overwhelming. Before we begin your application, we will deep-dive into your personal, academic and professional history to understand your profile and develop your post-degree goals. Based on this profile, we will help you identify the MBA programs that best match your objectives.
Building a strong personal narrative is the key to a successful application. Every program and every essay requires a unique approach.Your resume, essays and letters of recommendation should all tie together. We will help you build an impactful and wholistic story!
Once we have a narrative in place we will work together on crafting a cohesive and convincing application. We will review your entire application package to help you avoid some of the most common pitfalls and mistakes applicants make.
The interview is crucial component of your application. We have developped a 3-step interview prep process to match your uniqueness and strenghs to the interview style of each school you are interviewing for
“I reached out to Loubna for an initial consultation and was immediately impressed by her industry knowledge. I contacted several consultants for a profile assessment prior to connecting with her. I felt she was the most straightforward and earnest when it came to my odds of being admitted. As a former admissions officer she had a deep knowledge of the application process of the top business schools as well as the type of candidates they seek, which was extremely helpful in identifying the right program for my career goals.”
“ I highly recommend working with Loubna, I initially started my application process on my own and soon felt overwhelmed with the "story building" around my essay. I’ve had several Skype sessions with Loubna to discuss my personal, academic and professional background. Based on our conversation Loubna helped me build a strong personal narrative. She’s extremely savvy when it comes to brand building! Best decision I’ve made.”
“ When I found out I was waitlisted at MIT Sloan I reached out to Loubna to help me improve my application. She reviewed my application package and helped me identify weaknesses and inconsistencies. Although I spent months conducting research and reading online resources to craft my application I realized that nothing surpasses working with an admissions professional. She helped me strategize on the steps I needed to take to get admitted off the waitlist and the strategy proved successful, I received my letter of admission within a couple of weeks of submitting my supporting documents!”
“ I contacted Loubna about a year before submitting my application for HBS 2+2 program, she was a great resource even before I signed up for her consultancy services. She guided me during an entire year on the steps I needed to take to strengthen my profile. When I was ready to start my application Loubna guided me every step of the way and was always available to address any questions or concerns, evening and weekends included. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone looking for a personalized service from a professional that truly is well versed in the admission process. I’m so glad I’ve crossed her path!”
“J’ai contacté Loubna un peu a la dernière minute pour me guider dans le processus d’admission dans une université Américaine. Dès notre première conversation elle a su identifier mes point forts et points faibles puis me réorienter vers un Master qui me permettrai de réaliser mon projet professionel . Nous avons travaillé ensemble virtuellement via FaceTime une fois par semaine. Apres avoir établi une stratégie d’application puis nous avons travaillé ensemble sur la rédaction de mon « personal statement » ainsi que mon CV. Lorsque j’ai reçu une invitation à l’entretien d’admission, Loubna a organisé plusieurs sessions de coaching ou elle m’a mise en situation, je me suis presenté à l'entretien confiante grace à son soutien. Sans son aide je n’aurais pas pu naviguer le processus d’application. Je la recommande vivement ! »
