Getting wait-listed by a top MBA program is painful – you still hope for the best, but it’s often unclear on how to move forward. Here’s one success story from my student who was initially wait-listed at NYU Stern full-time MBA program, but eventually was offered a place. If you’ve been waitlisted, please contact me to see if I can assist you as well.


I came to Yael after I was put on the wait-list from NYU Stern. I chose Yael because of her education and experience at Stern. I was right! I felt hopeless when I learnt that I am on the waitlist without an interview. I didn’t want to give up but I didn’t know what was my direction to improve either? I am about average for all parameters in my application package against Stern student profile. I was happy that I found Yael online. I scheduled an one-hour consulting session with her to discuss my situation. Yael spent time before the call reviewing my case and gave me very straightforward, insightful and professional responses on wait-list strategy. One month later, I got an interview opportunity! I scheduled 2 mock interview sessions with Yael to practice. She gave me lots of great inspirations because she has an MBA herself. Now I am finally admitted! Yael’s sharp point of view on the criteria admission officers look for and her ability to diagnose the true problem for each case really make a difference for her clients. I recommend her wholeheartedly!!!
