I worked with Alice throughout my application process including the interview preparation. Since our initial assessment discussion, I realized that Alice was very smart and had the right intuitions: She quickly made sense of my various previous experiences and how they would connect to each other. I am a quant person with limited writing experience myself, and Alice acted as a very helpful sounding board for my essays. Her expertise in writing allowed her give me very thoughtful feedback on the style, tone and content. I also liked the fact that I had full ownership over my essays and what I wrote on them. Finally, working with her personally made things very effective as she really got to know my personality very well. I highly recommend Alice!

Alice made sure that I didn’t miss out on any life experiences that would distinguish me from other applicants, and she was also helpful with recommenders, who she interviewed and helped to draft the letters. I quickly received an invitation to interview at Cambridge Judge, and then an offer including a generous bursary! Menlo Coaching also helped me with career coaching. I knew that my salary was lower than the median for my position, and David helped me to create a negotiation strategy that ultimately resulted in me receiving a significant promotion. Although I am glad that the admission process is over, I will miss talking to Alice and David at Menlo Coaching!

I actually worked with Alice the weekend before my GSB interview. My sister had worked with her on her HBS application and recommended I prepare with Alice ahead of my interview on Monday. On a late Friday afternoon, Alice got right to work even though she had not worked with me throughout the application process. She helped me stay focused on being clear, concise, and very specific. She really listened to what my desires were and helped me fine tune them to put my best foot forward at my interview. I believe I had my best interview after that because I had come to know myself best. I could not have done that without the two sessions I worked with Alice to meticulously understand what drives me and what I will uniquely bring to the GSB! I wholly recommend Alice and would give her 6 stars if I could!

I worked with Alice for my HBS interview and post-interview reflection. Alice really stands out for her focused attention, extensive experience and what is more, the PERSONAL touch, compared to all other consultants I worked with (3 others, I know! It is a lot!). I spent four hours with Alice, three of which are used on three mock interviews and the last hour on post-reflection letter (I recommend others to use this multiple-session approach). During my first session, Alice focused on getting me to articulate my personal stories and pointed out my weakness: ability to explain technical things in simple terms. Alice helped me structure the ways that can help me explain and we spent the second session on career-related topics and some curve-ball questions. My last mock session with Alice was the day before my interview. (As you can imagine, I was alone, in a hotel room, feeling nervous). That last call REALLY helped soothe my nerves, brush up all things I have prepared so far and get some last minute questions answered. I look at MBA consultants as more than someone who edit my essays. In the case with Alice, she was mentor who coached me through the interview prep process, as well as a friend who gave me much-needed support and confidence for the final push.
