Yes, it’s an improvement—but... Read more »

    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

    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!

    Feedback from an HBS applicant

    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.
