Product Reviews

I highly recommend reading the Clear Admit School and Interview Guide. The School Guide is good for brushing up on the program, classes, clubs, school strengths, etc, — whereas the Interview Guide explains their typical interview, with questions other candidates have been asked.

Praise from a Top-10 MBA 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

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

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
