Working with Betsy was a fantastic experience! She is honest and told me exactly what I needed to hear, without sugar-coating. She never put words in my mouth, and was genuinely invested in getting to know me and helping me focus my career vision.

Working with Betsy was extremely productive and loads of fun! She made a huge effort to get to know me and what it was I should be pushing in my applications. I was very much impressed by her 24/7 availability and quick turnaround, especially as we worked intensively right through Christmas and New Year's Eve to reach round 2 deadlines. I not only obtained the "edge" I needed to get into my top choice schools (Wharton and Booth) but I also made a friend along the way. I don't know how I would have managed without her!
