      I just finished reading the Clear Admit School Guide to Wharton, and in one word, it is fantastic. I was surprised that I found some new info when I had thought I had the Wharton website covered end-to-end.

      Review from a Wharton applicant

      Smart MBA applicants are those who have researched the b-schools to find the right program for them. The Clear Admit School Guides provide an objective, thorough and insightful assessment of the different programs. They offer a unique comparative analysis of the top b-schools.

      Review from Matt Symonds, QS World MBA Tour Co-founder

      A thorough, objective, and accurate synopsis of the school, student composition, coursework, and admissions information. I remember all too well the leg work involved in rounding up school-specific info prior to making my application decisions -- I wish these guides were available when I was applying!

      Comments from a current CBS student

      The Clear Admit School Guides are a unique learning resource. By bringing together student opinion, official statistics and original research, the London Business School Guide offers an authentic snapshot of life in our programme. The cross-school analysis presented in the guide is invaluable for candidates who are looking to go beyond rankings and understand the nuances of leading programs.

      Comments from David Simpson, Associate Director of MBA Marketing & Admissions at London Business School

      I found your description of the Wharton guide to be spot-on: it does a good job of consolidating and contextualizing all the relevant info about Wharton in one succinct document. The Wharton history section was new info and interesting to me. I also thought that the guide did a better job of covering the specifics of the academic program than Wharton does in its own materials! I liked the geographic and industry job placement comparisons between schools too.

      Praise from a Wharton applicant
