Highlights from Brad’s Story

#1: Prestigious College Not Required 

As a CPA and computer scientist, Brad wanted an MBA to help him round out his business knowledge and advance into a management position. He knew that his application would need extra attention, as he had not attended a prestigious university as an undergraduate. By pushing him to work hard and develop the best application he was capable of writing, Menlo Coaching was able to help Brad earn the results he wanted: out of the eight programs he applied for, six accepted him.

#2: Investing in Menlo Coaching Paid Off

At first Brad was a little wary of the fees charged by Menlo Coaching, but he decided he needed the best help possible. In the end, Menlo Coaching was “110% worth the money, for sure.” In fact, Brad saw an immediate return on his investment when two of his target programs offered him full-ride scholarships. 

#3: Daily Contact

Brad noted that his coaches, Alice and Leslie, were in daily contact with him for a four-month period. They kept things honest, accepted only his very best, and directed him to goals that he could achieve.
