Product Reviews

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

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

Even as a second-year student at HBS, I learned something about the school by reading the Clear Admit guide!...During the application process, I was successful partially because I learned as much as possible about each program before applying. Learning so much about every school was difficult - it required campus visits, web searches, and contact with current students. While no publication could ever completely replace those experiences, the Clear Admit guide comes awfully close.

Comments from a current HBS student

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

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
