News, advice and resources for business school applicants


Clear Admit is an educational consulting and counseling firm founded by Wharton MBA graduates with extensive admissions consulting experience. As featured in BusinessWeek Online and The Wall Street Journal, Clear Admit uses a highly personalized methodology that combines the perspectives of MBA admissions officers, expert editors, MBA students, and MBA applicants to maximize your chances for acceptance at a top MBA program.

Clear Admit is dedicated to providing our clients with tailored, strategic advice on the most effective way to present themselves as they seek admission to the leading business schools. We work closely with applicants to co-develop their personal brands, teaching them to identify and communicate their strengths to business school admissions officers through each step of the application process. In doing so, our aim is to democratize the admissions process and help aspiring MBAs determine which program would best meet their needs and decide which schools are the most appropriate and realistic for a given applicant in light of his or her background and objectives.

We do this by pairing each client with a single consultant to ensure that each client receives personal and consistent advice concerning each element of his or her application. While each individual working with us interacts with a single person within the organization, our clients benefit from the collective strength of the entire consulting team. Combining knowledge of the business school experience with MBA admissions expertise, the Clear Admit team aims to make the process of applying to the top MBA programs more transparent and to serve as a resource to the applicant community.

The term “Clear Admit” is not simply a corporate name – it is an insider term that is used in admissions offices around the world. A ‘Clear Admit’ is a candidate who ‘walks on water’, putting together the perfect file from all standpoints and eliminating any concerns an admissions officer might have, while at the same time showing an extra spark that indicates a high potential for future contribution to the institution. Each admissions cycle only sees a handful of these candidates, but our goal is to push our clients towards this ‘Clear Admit’ status and dramatically increase their chances of admission to a top-level program.
