With Indian, Kenyan, Pakistani, and Canadian roots, Rahima grew up in Atlanta, Georgia. She graduated summa cum laude from the University of Pennsylvania, where she studied global health, healthcare management, South Asian Studies, and Asian American Studies. Rahima worked at PwC Advisory in New York as a healthcare and public sector strategy consultant after undergrad, where she earned an early promotion and the firm's MVP award. After three years in management consulting, Rahima moved to Malawi, in Southern Africa, with the Clinton Health Access Initiative (CHAI) to assist the Ministry of Health with global health programs. She initially worked to accelerate the introduction of new vaccines into Malawi, and then managed a team to increase access to HIV and TB diagnostics. Rahima also lived in Myanmar, helping CHAI to launch its offices in Yangon and Nay Pi Daw.

    MBA Applicant

She was helpful through every stage of the application process—from her insightful comments on my first draft all the way to her final review of my application.”


    MBA Applicant

  • “Rahima was great to work with. She provided excellent advice on my business school essays for top-tier MBA programs. Aside from her help on essays, the best part about working with her was her amazing responsiveness. She gave me strong, honest feedback, and also helped me prepare for my interviews.

    MBA Applicant

She gave me space to think critically and conduct the self-reflection needed to succeed in the difficult admissions process. I can honestly say I would not have gotten in without her.”

    Accepted to MIT Sloan School of Management.
    Ben, MBA Applicant

  • “Rahima's assistance was invaluable: she helped me brainstorm ideas, clarify my message, and convey my "big ideas" in writing. Her comments and edits were specific and thoughtful and constantly pushed me to find ways to improve my essays. She was always willing to help, even if that meant getting on the phone. She made the primary and secondary application process a lot less stressful, and I would recommend her to anyone applying to medical school.”


    MD Applicant

  • “From the moment I first connected with Rahima, I knew she would be the perfect person to guide me through my business school applications. She helped me craft a short list of schools, acted as a sounding board as I constructed my narrative, helped me shape my application profile, offered strong feedback and valuable edits on all my essays, and coached me for my interviews. I firmly believe I couldn't have done this without her.”


    Julie, MB Applicant

  • “Rahima was an indispensable guide through the MBA application process. I had a short timeline and wasn't very familiar with the application process, and Rahima helped me achieve admissisons outcomes I didn't think were possible. While her professional and coaching skills are wildly impressive, it's her accessibility and flexibility that really set her apart (especially during such a crazy application cycle). I'm truly grateful for all her help, and I cannot recommend her highly enough!”

    Accepted to Business School.
    MBA Applicant

  • “Rahima is a very professional and caring advisor. At each stage of the MBA application process, she helped me make critical decisions. She was willing to spend time discussing my personal questions and aspirations for business school. I am glad to have her help on the MBA path.”


    Ken, MBA Applicant

  • “Initially, I was cautious about hiring an MBA admissions coach, but I was lucky enough to be connected with Rahima. It was so worth it. Rahima is an incredible writer who helped me craft my story, and provided great edits on the content, structure, and word choice in my essays. She is professional, responsible, and reliable, even through holidays and other commitments. I felt she was just as invested in the success of my application as I was. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Rahima. Her support, encouragement, and honest approach made the application process so much less daunting.”


    Frances, MBA Applicant

  • “Rahima was an incredible coach! At the start of the application process, I considered myself a somewhat below average candidate for the top programs with my 3.3 GPA and a 690 GMAT. But Rahima encouraged me to still apply. She helped me develop my story and strengthen every other part of my application, too. She was very well organized and a strong communicator. Because Rahima had strengthened my overall profile so much, I received an interview from every school I applied to. I highly recommend her!”

    Accepted into one of the top MBA programs in the world.
    Saman, MBA Applicant

  • “If you are reading this testimonial, I'd like to congratulate you on finding the best MBA coach out there. Rahima is incredible. In our very first conversation, it was clear that she had the experience and empathy I was looking for in a coach. But what I thought was most unique about Rahima was that she took the time to listen to me and understand my story. She was patient and prompt as she went through numerous rounds of edits with me, always replying to me within a few hours. I never felt like she was just trying to get the job done. Every step of the way, she encouraged and challenged me so the application I submited was not just great, but exceptional. I can't emphasize this enough—Rahima is the best. I can't imagine applying without her.”

    Received interviews at Harvard Business School, Stanford GSB, and MIT LGO/Sloan.
    MBA Applicant

  • “Rahima is an exceptional career coach with impressive academic accomplishments, first-rate editing skills, and an excellent sense of humor. She is brilliant and sensible—a rare mixture. I am very happy to have worked with her as my career coach, and look forward to working with her in the future.”


    Career Coaching Student

  • “Given my decades away from academia, I was anxious about and intimidated by the graduate school application process. Rahima was incredibly suppportive: she constantly checked in with me, supported me, and motivated me to put my best foot forward. She is a powerhouse of resources. Now I know why they call her a "Master" coach.”


    Rosemary, Graduate School Applicant

  • “Simply put, I could not have gotten through the MBA application process without Rahima's support. Before working with Cambridge Coaching, I thought I had done a good amount of research on the app process, but as soon as I met Rahima, I realized just how many opportunities I would have missed out on if I hadn't worked with her. She was patient and caring as she helped me refine my story and application materials to really highlight my candidacy, and took time to listen to my concerns and reassure me every step of the way. She gave me the confidence I needed to apply to schools I had previously ruled out as too much of a stretch. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for help with the MBA app process!”


    Nina, MBA Applicant

  • “Rahima is intelligent, kind, and thoughtful. She has endless patience, but works quickly and masterfully to help you tell your story and make you shine. Hiring Rahima is worth every penny and will help you be the most competitive candidate possible.”


    Andrew, MBA Applicant

  • “I would have been lost without Rahima. She is not only an exceptional writer and editor, but also a great listener and communicator. She listened carefully to my thoughts and ideas, and used her extensive knowledge and intuition to guide me to a narrative that best suited the application and felt 100% like me. Her guidance, skills, and support were worth every single penny.”


    Samantha, MBA Applicant

  • “Rahima is a great coach for the MBA application process. She is communicative, insightful, and challenges you to dig deeper. Highly recommend working with her!”


    MBA Applicant

  • “After working with Rahima, my interviews went well. Both recruiters suggested that I would probably move to the next stage. Rahima really helped me to build my confidence and structure how I presented myself.”

    Received second-round interview.
