Product Reviews

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

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

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

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

The Clear Admit School Guides are a unique learning resource. By bringing together student opinion, official statistics and original research, the London Business School Guide offers an authentic snapshot of life in our programme. The cross-school analysis presented in the guide is invaluable for candidates who are looking to go beyond rankings and understand the nuances of leading programs.
