I take the time to get to know my clients inside and out. This allows us to create truly customized applications that are consequently very authentic, compelling and successful.
You will be working with me directly – a full-time, experienced, proven professional – on all elements of the application.
For best results, it is important that we partner on every aspect of your application. NOT just your essays. The application is akin to a “campaign” and each element needs to be consistent in message and quality. Also, statistically, each application element is weighted equally. Essays are weighted the same as your letters of recommendation, CV, and application boxes. Adcom looks at your LinkedIn as well.
For this reason, the first application generally requires 40 hours. My hourly rate is $120/hour. Subsequent applications are sequentially less, between 25-30 hours, depending upon how much additional work there is to be done. The 3rd and 4th applications land between 10-15. I strive to maximize your chances by repurposing your content in other applications. This allows us to improve your odds by applying to more schools.
Just looking for some answers or strategic direction with this whole thing? Contact me to book a 60 or 90-minute strategy session.
Don’t roll the dice on your future when the payoff is potentially massive: starting salary, scholarships, and being prepared to succeed in MBA internship interviews.

I got the call today and was accepted!! I’m so excited and at a loss for words. Thank you so much Farrell. Unbelievable and feel very humbled and lucky to have this opportunity. I really appreciate you pushing and encouraging me to pursue Kellogg. I wouldn’t be here without you.

"I thank Farrell whole heartedly for helping me get admitted to INSEAD, my dream B-school. When I found her on GMAT Club, I had already applied to London Business School, and was rejected without getting even an interview. In order to improve my essays and increase the chances to get admitted by my dream school, I decided to go with her, even knowing we on a very tight schedule..."

"Farrell is the only one who believed in me.

Honestly, this is probably the most important part of the application process and most students neglect it..."
