I truly enjoyed working with Jessica for my entire application process, including preparation for resume, essays, and interviews.
I strongly recommend Jessica to those applicants who are concerned about finding their unique stories, as she is definitely the best counselor who is committed to finding her clients’ uniqueness. Through casual conversations, Jessica picked up critical clues that I did not even notice, and helped me so many times to construct strong and appealing stories.
Besides, Jessica is a professional who never compromises the quality of a job. She always put her best effort to enhance every element of my whole application, and was willing to have discussions even in her busiest season, right before the application deadlines. Her dedicated support shaped me into a strong applicant, who got accepted from my dream schools in the end.
Finally, Jessica is a very cheerful counselor with whom you can always enjoy talking. Even though my application process was long and tough, she always encouraged me in a positive manner and made me feel relaxed enough to make breakthroughs. You will soon find that you can enjoy the road to your dream school by working with Jessica! Admitted schools: Wharton, LBS, NYU, Cornell
Jessica has been instrumental in me getting into both Oxford and LBS. From helping me form my story, editing my essays, to preparing me for my interviews, Jessica’s honest feedback and insights into the MBA process allowed me to prepare successful applications. Her professionalism, energetic personality and her ability to work around the client’s schedule made it very enjoyable to work with her. I couldn’t recommend her more if you’re considering applying to top tier MBA programs. Admitted to Oxford and LBS
What differentiates Jessica from other counselors is that she can deliver: 1) Direct feedback: she clearly points out good vs bad answers and gives feedback for improvement 2) Industry/business perspectives: she challenges industry/business perspectives of your job, which is one of the keys to ace your HBS interview 3) Customized questions: she reviews all the HBS application in advance and tailors her questions + asks additional questions on your responses 4) Tougher interview practice than actual: because of the above points, I felt the actual HBS interview was easier than Jessica's session since I felt I was well prepared
I would strongly recommend those who want to pass an HBS interview to have lessons with Jessica. Harvard MBA Class of 2020 It is not at all an overstatement to say that working with Jessica made the make-or-break difference in getting accepted to my top choice school. I worked with her for total of five interview sessions and each one was very much worth the investment.
Some of the skills I gained through the sessions were: - How to come in with a clear, proactive agenda and make the most of interview time - How to answer confidently/succinctly under unexpected questions - How to crystallize and tell vision clearly - How to tell stories in ways that draws interviewer (in ways I hadn't imagined before) - How to deliver in ways that convey confidence
I appreciated that she gave direct feedback on my improvement/strength points so that we could work to achieve the most important thing: results! Working with her was very much a growth experience that I'll carry onto MBA and afterwards. I truly appreciate her coaching and would recommend her to anyone aspiring to grow and achieve a spot in his/her school of choice. Harvard MBA Class of 2020
Jessica helped me prepare for interview through her customized lessons for HBS. I took three lessons, and every time felt clear improvement, as she always provided me with effective homework to work on. Especially for HBS interview, you need to know your industry and business deeply, besides your vision and achievements. With her instruction provided, I researched my industry from different perspectives and practiced explaining the potential of my business with vivid evidences, which helped me a lot to stay calm while the interviewer asked me many hard questions. I would definitely recommend Jessica to anyone preparing for the HBS interview! Harvard MBA Class of 2020
I highly recommend her interview training, because Jessica is really good at motivating people and her feedback improve our interview skill very much. She made me really motivated even when she gave me some hard feedback. Her feedback is always very valuable for me to improve my interview skills, and her tailor-made training fits me very well. When I asked interview training to her, I only had 1 week to go. In this situation, she quickly made 4 interview training schedule for me, and each training focused on what I needed at that time. Thanks to her mock interview and advice, I gained confidence and fluency for typical interview questions. Thanks to her help, I was admitted to all five schools which I applied! I could not achieve it without her help. Thank you very much, Jessica! IESE MBA Class of 2020 Jessica has been a wonderful guide for the HBS interview. I had 3 sessions with her, and found each session extremely helpful. She read the entire application package and asked a set of sharp questions customized for me. She showed different styles of interview for each session, so I could experience different flow of the interview as well as the scope of the questionnaires.
She also knows how to motivate people. Her feedbacks were highly precise, and detailed. She also provided me with a bunch of actionable next steps which helped me a lot. It was such a great pleasure to see myself getting used to the interview - how to proactively deliver the messages under the fast-paced interview. I would not be able to ace the interview without her help, and would highly recommend Jessica to anyone preparing for the MBA interview ! Harvard MBA Class of 2020
I worked with Jessica for interview preparation, and recommend her to anyone applying for top schools. Without Jessica, I couldn't pass the interview! I really enjoyed interview preparation journey with her, thanks to her enthusiasm and passion which always made me feel confident and cheered-up. She not only helped me to make my answer straight to the point and sophisticated, but also advised me the attitude and gesture during the interview. LBS MBA Class of 2020
Jessica led me to get admitted to three MBA programs including LBS, my final choice. I didn't have high scores on TOEFL and GMAT but she truly worked for me with her great passion. I think her biggest strength is her ability to point out logical weakness of an essay with no hesitation. She well knows how an essay is attractive or "boring", which she told me as long as I wrote a boring essay. Though discussion with her was tough, my application became so strong that none of admissions and interviewers disagreed with my thought.
An admission officer told me that my sophisticated essays, resume, and interviews overcame my low score on GMAT (significantly outside the 80% range), though I was just a normal employee in finance. I believe that any of you taking her sessions will have a chance to open a door to your hope. I was the case! Contact Jessica to talk to her directly on your first trial session! LBS MBA Class of 2019
Jessica was recommended to me strongly by a friend. She helped with my interview prep for Chicago Booth. I was amazed at how useful that one hour call over Skype turned out to be. First half was for questions she had prepared based on my resume. In the second half she gave me really valuable and incisive feedback (in the nicest way possible) about everything from my answers to my body language to my level of research into the Booth MBA programme. With just one day to go for my interview, I was able to use my time best thanks to her help and guidance. I had an excellent interview and I really owe it to her! Thank you so much Jessica!!! Big hug. Chicago Booth MBA Class of 2019
I was very satisfied with Jessica's service and work recommend her to anyone seeking to improve their MBA application. As a non-traditional MBA candidate, she helped me highlight the relative strengths of my application. Her input was particularly helpful in the early stages of essay writing- flagging the most compelling ideas to create a cohesive and personal narrative. I also appreciated her quick turnaround time, her willingness to answer miscellaneous questions, and her efficient feedback delivery. She was a key factor in my admission into Sloan, my top choice program. MIT Sloan MBA Class of 2019 (also admitted to Haas)
The day when my colleague introduced Jessica to me completely changed my life. I have really enjoyed my application journey with her since then, and I offer my strongest recommendation of Jessica as an admissions consultant for applicants who want to apply for top-ranked schools. To give just one example, when I was not sure about the overall structure of my legal analysis and personal statement, she set me on the right path through discussions. She kindly and acutely pointed out defects of my drafts, and I was always greatly impressed by her intelligence, dedication and knowledge. Therefore, I believe that her aptitude and character will enable all applicants to make their applications impressive. Harvard LL.M. Class of 2018

I am completely convinced that I would not have been admitted to the LLM program at NYU (my number one choice) if it were not for Jessica.
Jessica pulled no punches in telling me where I needed to improve areas of my application and she made me really think deeply and carefully about what I wanted to achieve and how I needed to structure my application in order to be successful. She was excellent at pointing me in the right direction and making me think along the right path without telling me what to do or how I should write. Although Jessica was direct in giving her advice this should not be interpreted to mean that she was in any way harsh or uncaring. Quite the opposite is true - Jessica was always supportive and fair, both in the content of her advice and the delivery of it and by the end of our sessions together talking to her was like talking to a friend.
I would not hesitate to recommend Jessica to anyone who is seeking law school admission in the US. NYU LLM Class of 2017
Jessica has everything you expect from your MBA consultant. MBA application process is way harder than you might be thinking. You will need someone who 1) can thoroughly and quickly understand your work and your career goals and reconstruct them to stand out from your competitors, 2) has very abundant experiences with top schools including European ones and knows their characteristics and strategy you should take, and 3) always keeps you motivated with her warm and energetic personality. I prepared my resume, essays, interview, and presentation with Jessica and can certainly say that working with her was definitely the best decision during my short and intensive MBA application journey. HEC MBA Class of 2018
Without her support, it would have been impossible for me to be accepted by the school of my first choice. Especially my not-competitive GMAT score and age were two negative factors and couldn't be compensated by elaborated essays if I didn't have her. She tenaciously tried to collect positive elements, most of which I didn't even recognise, out of my background and past experience through conversation, and then offered me sound advice to make a better story. Because of her warm personality, conversation with her was never stressful. I was really helped by her articulate yet encouraging advice during mentally and physically tough application process. I am delighted with her professional support and the result. HEC MBA Class of 2017
I had two sessions with Jessica for my HBS interview prep. Her advice, always honest and concise, was essential to the success of my interview. I benifited greatly from the fact that she focuses not only on the interview Q&A, but on the style and energy of my delivery. I had a great time working with her and definitely recommend her services to anyone applying to business school. Thanks Jessica! Harvard MBA Class of 2017
If you want to practice under the highest pressure, and feel rather relaxed in the real interview, I would recommend to work with Jessica. She is very professional in terms of preparing customized questions and giving concise advice. Also, she always encouraged me to achieve my goal, which helped me get admitted to Harvard Business School. Harvard MBA Class of 2017
I first met Jessica one week before my first interview, and during the next 2.5 months we worked together, we had six interview prep sessions. I kept on going back to Jessica for additional sessions because her sessions were always packed with valuable advice. Her feedbacks were always direct, and I loved how she would be clear about whether or not she liked each of my answers, and why. Jessica would tell me exactly which aspect of the answer needed improvement, whether it was the choice of story, the way I structured it, or the way I delivered it. What was great about Jessica was that even when giving me these kinds of critical feedback, it never felt unpleasant, due to her passionate attitude and excellent sense of humor. I worked with many admissions consultants for interview prep, but I can recommend to anyone that Jessica is definitely among the best! Harvard MBA Class of 2017
I was referred by a friend who got into MIT with the help of Jessica. Among the five consultants I've talked to, Jessica really stood out. I immediately felt that she sincerely cared about me as a person, and was so compassionate after hearing my stories, which was key to my successful applications. Without holistically understanding the applicants, their career and life goals, there is no way to make a clear, personalized essay. I decided to choose Jessica immediately after the initial consultation, and never regretted ever since.
Jessica is such a pleasant person to talk to, and is very accommodating. To many, including myself, the MBA application process was quite a struggle with lots of anxiety and uncertainties. It was a blessing to have Jessica, with her rich experience and empathy, to guide me though this long-enduring journey. Chicago Booth Class of 2017 (also admitted to Wharton)
Working with Jessica was the key ingredient to my successfully navigating the LLM admissions process, resulting in an offer for admission from my preferred school, NYU. Her approach was caring, considered, personalized, patient and insightful. The process was a fully engaged one, with Jessica getting the best out of me, rather than dictating to me the approach to be adopted. The consequence was that my application remained reflective of my personality and strengths, rather than being formulaic. Jessica has a true gift for the job that she does and I cannot recommend her strongly enough. NYU LLM Class of 2016
I worked with Jessica in preparation for business school interviews. I knew that I needed help telling my story and refining my delivery and Jessica was an amazing coach and mentor in this regard.
At our first meeting, Jessica had thoroughly reviewed every detail of my application, even small pieces of my packet I did not remember. This preparation was unique - I held mock interviews with a handful of others and Jessica was the only professional to prepare with such a high level of detail. Jessica's feedback was perceptive and spot on - as though she had known me for years.
My message went from sounding stiff to sounding natural and free flowing. I was very concerned about the delivery element of my interview and Jessica's theater background was incredibly helpful as I learned tips to relax and project. In the end I nailed the interview, all because of the work I did preparing with Jessica. I feel truly fortunate to have connected with this Texan in Tokyo. Harvard MBA Class of 2017
I worked with Jessica for HBS interview, and I can confidently say that Jessica provided me with the best interview prep I have ever had!!! Not only does she have detailed knowledge of overall MBA interviews, but she also understands what the school is like based on her experience at Harvard, which in my case helped me a lot to prepare strong answers for many questions.
Practice with Jessica was never easy, but very fun and worthwhile. Her advice was to the point, helped strengthen my answers, and supplemented the weak points of my submitted application. Every time after practice, I felt so confident that I could come up with strong answers to questions based on Jessica's advice.
I could never gotten this result without Jessica's help. Harvard MBA Class of 2017
I worked with Jessica throughout the entire application process, and I couldn’t achieve this result without her. Essay writing requires applicants to spend huge amount of time and enormous efforts, it is incredibly important to work with a reliable navigator. In my case, this was Jessica.
She was always professional and never compromised in terms of the quality: - Her feedback was always critical and concrete, having led me to the right direction towards the goal. I was aware that she accurately knows how Admissions examine applications and what type of applications can be outstanding. - Although we worked with on a very tight schedule, she always checked and gave feedback without any delay. - She spared no efforts to make works exceptional no matter how big challenges (theme, timeline...) existed in front of us.
Above all, what makes her exceptional is her personality and attitude to try to understand “the person.” I learned it is essential to link my motivation for future study and my experiences in the past, in order to write a strong essay that can captivate reader’s attention. In this regards, she incredibly rapidly and accurately understood my feature and background, and always gave me a concrete feedback to strengthen my work.
I want to extend my greatest thanks to Jessica for all her supports. Columbia SIPA MPA Class of 2017
I worked with Jessica for about 6 months throughout the entire application process (from resume to essay & interview) and I have to say I couldn’t achieve this result without her support.
Her comments and advice were always precise, sharp and clear. Looking back at my first essay draft and the final one, I was just surprised how my final draft was clearer, easier to understand and impactful than the first draft. Also she has a great personality, and I enjoyed very much meeting and discussing with her, and improving the essay together with her. Thanks to her, actually, I was able to enjoy the tough application process. I would say I was lucky enough to have her support, and again, without her, I couldn’t get the offers from the schools. I definitely recommend Jessica’s counselling to my friends. Cambridge MBA Class of 2016 (also admitted to Oxford, HEC)
I intensively worked with Jessica for three months for tailoring my application strategy, scheduling the process, completing resume and essays and preparing interviews. Throughout the entire process, Jessica gave me a lot of practical strategies, insights and milestones toward achieving successful application.
My application this year was my second challenge, following failed applications with other consultants last year. Once I began working with Jessica, she provided me candid and precise analysis on my failed applications, which directed me to right track toward success. Through discussions, she navigated me so that I could explore my experiences more deeply and deliver them to admissions team effectively.
Throughout the process, I was under pressure and struggled in developing essays. However, Jessica was always encouraging to work on without any compromise, which I found really tough but essential in a successful application. Without her support, I could not have received any offers.
I really appreciated Jessica’s support and do believe that Jessica will also be your best partner to your special MBA journey. HEC MBA Class of 2016
I asked three sessions to Jessica though I prepared for my interviews with other consultants and alumni. This is because her advice is very unique and precious. Her deep insights not only about contents but also about delivery helped me develop my preparation. For example, she told me to smile, straighten myself, and make my story more dramatic. These advice helped me relax as well as show my passion and energy at interviews. As a result, I was admitted by Yale SOM.
Therefore, I will recommend for everyone who prepare for interviews to have at least a few sessions with Jessica. Her unique support will definitely enable you to perform better. Yale MBA Class of 2017
As some other applicants strongly recommended her service, I worked with Jessica for MIT interview. Since I could not perform well in my first mock interview, she evaluated me as the lowest level among MIT applicants. Her advice, however, was very clear and concrete, so I could understand well my areas for improvement and develop my skills very quickly. Thanks to her knowledge and professionalism, I got into my dream school! I will certainly recommend future applicants to work with her. MIT Sloan MBA Class of 2017
As many other applicants as well as my main counselor strongly recommended her service, I took her interview lessons. I actually took many other counselor’s interviews, but Jessica’s were the best. Jessica was very strict (honest) but her advice was the best and most meaningful. What I think distinguishes is as follows. - Her advice is always concise and includes deep insights. - She gives me the advice about behavior, facial expression, and attitude, which other counselor can’t give. - She is truly professional and never compromises. I can state without exaggeration that if you want to attend your dream school, the best way to do it is to take Jessica’s lessons. Thank you very much. MIT Sloan MBA Class of 2018 (also admitted to LBS and Ross)
I applied to business school while going through a major career change and needed help developing my story to explain effectively how business school fit in with my medium and long-term goals. Thanks to Jessica's guidance I was able to deliver a compelling story that not only explained how my recent decisions were aligned with my long-term motivations and goals, but also reflected my personality.
With her ample yet detailed knowledge of the application process and what the adcoms are looking for, Jessica gave me invaluable advice for developing my story, spotting and resolving the weak points in my application, and eventually preparing for interviews. I really enjoyed working with Jessica and am delighted with the results: acceptances to HBS and MIT. Harvard MBA Class of 2016
Jessica helped me during the whole admission process. Her experience and knowledge on admissions is evident and I always felt comfortable to take her advices, her guidance was essential for me to move from a plethora of –apparently- disconnected ideas to a number of cohesive essays. Our talks were essential to my admission. Needless to say that I am very satisfied with the service offered and I will certainly recommend her to anyone who is applying for a master degree” Columbia SIPA MPA Class of 2016
I was admitted to all 3 including full scholarship offers from Rice and Georgetown. Despite the financial hit, I will be confirming my spot in the Kellogg class of 2016 in the coming weeks. I couldn't be more excited, the school is an excellent fit for my chosen field. Without your help that would not have been possible, your advice was firm, clear and well informed. The changes you suggested made my applications more pointed, confident and ultimately successful. Kellogg MBA Class of 2016
For the 2.5 months I worked with her on MBA applications, Jessica was always enthusiastic and energetic about making my applications a truly original one. She definitely knows when to compliment and when to directly point out areas for improvements. Jessica was a very good listener and passionate about helping me stand out among competitive applicants by carefully consulting me on both professional and personal experiences. Her candid feedback on my resume, essays (including video essays) and mock interviews were all extremely helpful, straightforward and prompt, and I would recommend her for anyone who wishes to have first-class application consultations. Tuck MBA Class of 2016 (also admitted to Duke and Kellogg)
I worked with Jessica in preparing for my interviews at HBS and MIT. Jessica the person is probably as impressive, if not more, than Jessica "the queen of interviewing". Here's why: Despite the extremely short notice for an interview practice session before my HBS interview, Jessica found some time for us, which was sweet. As luck would have it, my internet decided to get spotty resulting in a cancellation 15 mins into the slot with no time for a reschedule, as my HBS interview was in 2 days. I thought it was extremely gracious of Jessica to provide me a full refund while sending the entire list of questions she had prepared for me. I thought those questions were really spot-on, very personalized to my resume and she even threw in a little tactical advice with that email.
When it came time to prepare for my MIT interview, it was a no-brainer for me to schedule some time with Jessica again. I am of the opinion that if Jessica weren't an independent admissions consultant she could easily slot in any of the top 5 b-school adcoms. She had some excellent tips/candid feedback on content, suggestions for alternate answers and how I could do better in some of the replies. The beauty of a good coach is that they make you feel confident to deliver on D-Day and Jessica is one of them. It didn't hurt that I also had good fun working with her.
December brought good news from HBS and MIT and I am really thrilled how it all worked out. She would be my go-to person for any interview prep. Thanks Jessica! Harvard MBA Class of 2016
Jessica is an extremely proficient and able adviser for any student aspiring to pursue an LL.M in a reputed Law School, her advice helped me get admission to Harvard Law School. She knows when to draw the line, Jessica will advise you on the possible changes you can make to your personal statement and research essay but very meticulously try not to interfere with your creativity. She very well knows how to extract your thoughts which maybe embedded deep inside your sub-consciousness and then lets you feel free to express them and then adds sheen to them... If you are seriously considering Harvard Law School or the likes then Jessica's help will be crucial for your admission. Harvard LLM Class of 2014
Among the three schools that interviewed me, the only school that accepted me was the school I spent 2 hours with Jessica to prepare for its interview. I was able to improve my performance in a short time before the actual take. Jessica knew specific points that the school evaluates through the interview and helped customized my stories and answers. She has extensive experience working with non-native English speakers so I felt comfortable and smooth talking with her. I would say it was truly a wise choice to work with Jessica to prepare my interview. Yale MBA Class of 2015
More than just a consultant, Jessica is the catalyzer that transforms your real experiences into the perfect MBA essays. She helped me select the right examples from my past and gather the courage to put in writing my true career objectives. With flexible timetables and amazing responsiveness despite time differences, Jessica helped me overcome a weak GMAT (660) and put together a winning application in record time.
I am recommending her services to my friends who apply to business school. INSEAD MBA Class of 2014
Couldn’t have done it without you. Some thoughts that I wanted to share with you - 1. You are brilliant with respect to feedback. Truly! The essays wouldn’t have had as much depth were it not for you pushing me to think harder. While most of us work purposefully towards our goals, articulating the process (I've discovered through this application process) is not that easy. 2. You know how to ask the right "questions". Just one session with you on skype and your questions got me on the right track. Hats off to you! 3. I like the way the feedback comes from you - straight and blunt without any effort to mask it. It helps me know exactly how an adcom person might think and where exactly I need to focus. 4. I am aware that I have worked on a tight timeline with you on this application, however you have reverted with amazing promptness, and I am really grateful for that. 3. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you - whether I make it to Harvard or not. I have learnt so much from you, just through the application process. I mean it. Harvard MPA, Class of 2014 (also accepted at Columbia, Georgetown, Johns Hopkins, Tufts, and Syracuse)
I appreciate her from my heart. She's incredibly smart and consulting sessions were packed with all the critical advices, backed by her experiences and education. She's truly professional in keeping her advice quality very high. Also, she's a person of ethics (Does her best for clients. Likes authentic ways rather than sneaky ones). She has a good personality, and I liked talking with her even in hard times. Again, thank you very much and please keep in touch, Jessica! Wharton MBA Class of 2013 (also admitted to Kellogg)
As an ex-MBA applicant who worked with Jessica throughout MBA application, I confirm that I would not be admitted to the school without her. Jessica was always a strong driving force for me to elaborate my resume and application and my interview skill. Among various excellent points of Jessica, I would like to point out following three points which are critical in successful application: 1. Strong passion for excellence Jessica has strong passion for excellence, which significantly contributed for my successful admission to dream school. She always provided clear and accurate advice. Jessica significantly added value to my resume, essay and interview by extracting my aspiration. Without her, it would be difficult to differentiate myself with other applicants in the most prestigious business school in the world. 2. Deep understanding on applicant Throughout my application, I got strong impression that she understood me better than anyone else, even my close family. Working with someone who deeply understands your personality as well as your career aspiration is a critical key to successful application. I overcame difficulty thanks to strong and continuous support from her. I have to draw attention to important fact that it is difficult to find such a partner. I was extremely lucky to work with such a brilliant partner in my application. 3. Rich skills and immense experience Jessica has preeminent skill in developing sophisticated resume, strong and attracting essay and effective interview. Especially, she helped me a lot in elaborating my essay in the limited words. As a non-native English speaker, I would not create such an attractive essay without Jessica. Moreover, she has immense experience on business school admission. During mock interview, she asked many questions based on her past experience and some of the questions were actually asked in my interview for the school. Thanks to high contribution from Jessica, I was admitted to the London Business School, which was the only school I applied for. LBS MBA Class of 2013
