I’d like to highlight how instrumental Lynn has been in my (successful) application process. When I was referred to mbaMission by my instructor at Manhattan GMAT, I had solid statistics and work experience, but I needed help navigating the admissions process, articulating my candidacy, and above all, I needed confidence. Lynn provided all of these things and more. She helped me frame my experiences in ways that I hadn’t ever thought of. She helped me understand how stories that I initially thought were disjointed, isolated events were actually stepping stones on a path that led me to where I am today, and that prepared me for where I want to go in the future. Lynn was also instrumental in helping me evaluate which programs might suit my personality and my goals, and how to best portray myself not only as a qualified candidate, but as a candidate that belonged at each of the schools to which I applied.
Lynn was everything that mbaMission promised – knowledgeable, responsive, honest, etc. – but more importantly, Lynn became a trusted advisor and a friend through the admissions process, and I can honestly say that I could not have made it through without her help. I joked several times that my relationships with family and friends were spared because Lynn shielded them from my stress. While comical, I do believe it to be true. Lynn always made herself available at odd times, given my work schedule, even for calls that were sometimes merely confidence-boosters. Enlisting Lynn’s help has been one of my best decisions throughout the MBA admissions process, and I am excited to join her as an HBS alum in just over 2 years!
