I wanted to again thank you for all the guidance during the MBA application process. Your approach to understand my unique differentiators and knowledge of navigating the application process were both critical. In addition to the value-added feedback on the applications, you provided me with the organizational tools that allowed me to keep track of my workplan and various deadlines.
I accepted the job with [company] and thank you for all of your help!
The Sparrey Consulting mock interview for Wharton was crucial for me. First, simply the experience of "walking through" the interview gave me insight into how it would feel on game-day. As a result, I ultimately felt very confident in the interview which allowed me to relax and answer the interviewer's questions calmly and clearly. Second, the summary of my performance provided hours after the mock interview was eye opening. The notes provided were incredibly thorough and covered what worked and areas for improvement. Without Andrea's insight, I am certain that I would not have identified those weaknesses.
