    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

    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

    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

    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

    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!
