Melissa genuinely cares about you, is relentlessly supportive, and is highly dependable—but most importantly she isn’t afraid to give the critical feedback you need to hear.
After interviewing a few MBA consultancies, it was clear mbaMission was unmatched in its quality of consultants, abundance of application resources, and overall commitment to genuinely caring about applicants.
I could not have asked for a better consultant to work with than Melissa Blakeslee. Melissa was a true partner to me. She consistently provided thoughtful, critical feedback that really pushed me to become a stronger writer. She very much cares about making sure essays feel authentic to you and your experiences, putting special emphasis on the pre-writing brainstorming process. It makes a HUGE difference. She will work on as many iterations of an essay as you want, so that by the end you are 100% confident in each piece. I really appreciated how willing she was to spend so much time on an essay, never rushing the process (but always keeping an eye on timelines of course)!
Melissa’s dependability and quality of work also never failed to exceed my expectations. She works unbelievably quickly—more often than not, she sent edits back far faster than the contractual 48-hour turnaround time.
Melissa is also super helpful in interview preparation—in actual interviews, I didn’t receive a single question that she and I hadn’t prepped. Insanely helpful and impressive.
Most importantly, at the end of the day Melissa made me feel motivated, confident, and prepared, even at times when I doubted myself. She got me into my top choice school, which I thought was impossible!!
If you want a true thought partner who genuinely cares about you, but isn’t afraid to give you the critical feedback you need, you will not be disappointed if you hire Melissa.
