“Samara was an amazing MBA coach. She did a great job helping me strategize, prep, and feel confident for my interview. She began by teaching me about the interview process, and then conducted several mock interviews. She was very encouraging and provided necessary and productive feedback. Samara has a lot of knowledge about the interview process and provided me with tips to help me articulate my narrative and provide strong answers to behavioral questions. I left each session feeling more prepared and confident in my abilities. She was also responsive and flexible with scheduling. I would not have been accepted without her advice, support, and encouragment. I highly recommend Samara!”

“Samara is the most encouraging coach I have ever worked with, and was extremely reliable throughout the process. She helped me strategize and edit my essay as well as develop a strong resume. Samara made sure that every minute of our hour-long sessions was productive. Each essay strategy session was well-planned and executed. She read countless drafts of my essay and resume until each document was perfect, and was great at providing constructive feedback and critiques. Samara has extensive knowledge of the application process and helped me construct a powerful application I could not have achieved on my own. I would not have been accepted without her help—I strongly recommend Samara!”
