Product Reviews

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.

Commendation from an applicant admitted to Harvard, Stanford, Wharton and Kellogg

I found your description of the Wharton guide to be spot-on: it does a good job of consolidating and contextualizing all the relevant info about Wharton in one succinct document. The Wharton history section was new info and interesting to me. I also thought that the guide did a better job of covering the specifics of the academic program than Wharton does in its own materials! I liked the geographic and industry job placement comparisons between schools too.

Praise from a Wharton applicant

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

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

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.
