      Product Reviews

      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

      It's important for applicants to learn as much as they can about a program before applying so that they can find the program that is the best fit for them and present themselves in the best possible light. The SOM School Guide does a really nice job of digging beneath the surface and pulling together a lot of useful information about the School in a way that can serve as a helpful resource during the pre-application due diligence process.

      Feedback from Bruce DelMonico, Director of Admissions, Yale School of Management

      I want to tip my hat to the team at Clear Admit that put these guides together. I'm a recent graduate of Wharton's MBA program and remain active in the admissions process (serving as an alumni interviewer to evaluate applicants). I can't tell you how important it is for applicants to show genuine enthusiasm for Wharton and I think the Clear Admit School Guide for Wharton captures many of the important details, as well as the spirit of the school.

      Accolades from a Wharton MBA graduate

      Many thanks for the HBS School Guide. It is just awesome! It has all that I need - a veritable one-stop-shop for all my research needs. Thanks again!

      Feedback from an HBS applicant

      ClearAdmit’s school guides prepared me for interviews — specifically, they helped me locate very specific questions about each school that I could ask at the end, so that it was obvious that I had done my research.
