    Product Reviews

    Praise from a Top-10 MBA 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

    The Clear Admit School Guide to CBS looks great!! It is very well written, resourceful, accurate and concise. It tells you all the essentials because the facts are gathered from the admin, students, and staff. It also tells you things you won't find in any other MBA guide. Plus, it's really fun to read! Great job!

    Feedback from a current Columbia student

    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

    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!
