Helping exceptional people surpass their dreams

Not Your Everyday Admissions Consultant

Let’s Make Magic.


Master Admissions’ number-one goal is to help you get into the business administration program of your choice. Certainly, the applicant pool is competitive, but I also know that you have a compelling story that draws upon your achievements and unique personal qualities. I help you map your strategy out so that you will succeed. So that your MBA essays stand out. Together we review your work and life experiences and carefully elicit the tangible and measurable accomplishments that you may not have seen yourself.

Our Philosophy

Getting accepted by a business school you've always dreamed of does not require you graduate as valedictorian of your university class. You don't have to earn perfect scores on your GMAT, nor must you start your own million-dollar business and win the Nobel peace prize. Rather, Master Admissions believes that every candidate to business school owns an exceptional story, and that story is the key to your application.

Paying it Forward

We donate up to 10% of fees to 501 (c) (3) non-profits, particularly, local charities that might be overlooked, underfunded, and have a verifiable impact. We at Master Admissions are always interested in learning about candidates' involvement in their communities, big and small.

“My goal is to draw out your rock star qualities. Your story is far more interesting than you think.”
