    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

    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

    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 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

    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!
