    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

    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

    Purchasing the Clear Admit HBS School Guide was one of best decisions I made in the application process. I visited HBS three times and was certain that I acquired all the necessary information about the school. After reading the guide, it became clear that I was wrong!

    Praise from an HBS 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

    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!
