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

Applicants constantly hear that no two schools are alike, however, very little information exists where one can learn about these differences. Clear Admit does an excellent job in helping prospective applicants learn about individual schools through the School Guides, providing great information about specific schools in the context of how they compare to other schools on similar metrics.

Praise from Rosemaria Martinelli, Associate Dean, Student Recruitment & Admissions, Chicago Graduate School of Business

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!
