The All-In Package

Get into business school. Change your life. Change the world. We’ll show you the way.

Who Should Go All-In?

Who should go All-In? An Ivy League grad keenly aware that when it comes to MBA admissions, there are no guarantees. An applicant who faces challenges such as suspensions, failed classes, lay-offs or low numbers. Or, anyone who hopes to get in to business school and knows that hope alone does not make dreams come true.

Since 2001, Stacy Blackman Consulting clients have received unparalleled rates of acceptances to and scholarships from every top business school in the world. In 2012, SBC clients received over $2.5 million in scholarship offers.

How It Works

CREATE A PARTNERSHIP
BY FINDING THE PERFECT MATCH.

Our process begins with the meticulous pairing of clients and consultants based on histories, needs and goals. Some of our consultants have a sweet spot for non-traditional applicants while others excel with engineers. Just like you, our consultants’ backgrounds and perspectives are varied.

You’ll be matched with someone who believes in your candidacy and who is excited to work with you. Before you’re paired, you can review bios and speak with potential consultants so you feel 100% comfortable.

We don’t begin an engagement or accept payment until you feel you’ve been paired with the perfect match.

THE RIGHT STRATEGY IS
YOUR KEY TO SUCCESS.

So, you’ve been paired with the perfect consultant. Now, it’s time to build an action plan. That starts with a kick-off meeting during which your consultant will dig into the who, what, how and why that form your story.

With a real sense of your history, you and your consultant will come up with a customized application strategy.

Your Strategy Will Include:

  • Outlining your strengths and your “reasons to believe”.
  • Identifying weaknesses and how to mitigate them. (Our clients learn that their weaknesses can also be amazing opportunities, and the things they worry about are often what set them apart.)
  • Selecting stories and experiences that suit specific essay questions.
  • Planning for implementation of strategy through every interaction with target schools.
  • School Selection: We’ll have an in-depth and honest discussion about your profile and then make recommendations while still adhering to your vision.
  • Recommendation Strategy: We will help you select recommenders and develop materials to guide and assist them.
  • School guides for available programs on your list.

You’ll receive an Application Strategy Document, which serves as a roadmap for your applications.

Guidance on leveraging social media to support your application strategy.

OUR CLIENTS DON’T BLEND IN.

We implement your personal strategy across every point of contact with your target schools: data forms, informal communications, essays, resume, recommendations. There are no limits on our reviews.

We are here for you, recognizing that many applicants are balancing work, family, and other commitments with the very intense admissions process. We are available weekends, evenings as well as regular work hours.

OUR COMBINED EFFORTS LEAD TO
YOUR INDIVIDUAL SUCCESS

As a client, you have access to our entire team. Your primary consultant will help you connect with other experts as needed for additional essay reviews or to answer your more complex questions.

Clients also have a dedicated client liaison who serves as an additional resource to answer questions, help brainstorm ideas or complete essay reviews. Your client liaison works with a bigger portion of the applicant pool and can provide an additional perspective on how your application compares to others.

You can also receive an “Extra Eyes” review from a relevant expert on our team. Multiple and diverse layers of review are a hallmark of the SBC service; this approach prevents tunnel vision and provides you with all of the perspectives and inputs that you require.

Our online resource center is a vault with over a decade of data: sample essays, recommendations, resumes, school overviews, interview transcripts and more. We’ll give you school specific insights along the way and discuss what that means for you. Every year is different and every candidate is unique so accept nothing less than personalized attention that reflects your individuality.

PUT YOUR APPLICATION TO THE TEST
BEFORE IT’S TOO LATE TO CHANGE.

You’ve come so far. You’ve almost completed the very intense MBA application process. But before we send it off, we want to make sure it’s perfect. That means fresh eyes and maybe a fresh take.

Once a full set of application materials for your initial school have been drafted, but not finalized, the application will be sent to a former admissions committee member for a one time review, adcomm style. You’ll have the benefit of a true admissions committee review while still having the ability to tinker and change.

You will then partner with your primary consultant to incorporate the feedback and finalize your b-school application.

TAKE THE STRESS OUT OF INTERVIEWING.
PRACTICE MAKES PERFECT.

Our interview video platform will be key to your initial interview prep. Choose from a menu of automated interview prompts, record your live interview and play back to reflect and refine your technique. Practice as often as you wish and submit one video for written feedback from a team expert.

Your primary consultant will share proven interview tips which you can then put to the test in a scheduled mock interview with an outside consultant. Just like the real thing, the interviewer is not familiar with your background, but is skilled at getting to know you quickly. Your mock interview can take place in person, via Skype, or over the phone, but will always include time at the end for feedback.

We model our interviews after the real thing, simulating Stanford’s ambassador-like friendly approach, Harvard’s grueling inquisition and Wharton’s group discussion. Any mock group interviews will deliver written feedback at the end.

Your consultant will make sure you’re not only ready for your interview, but excited. You’ll have the confidence that only comes with practice and precision.

PARTNERS, REMEMBER? FINISHING YOUR APPLICATION DOES NOT MEAN WE STOP WORKING.

WE’RE HERE FOR YOU UNTIL YOU SAY “YES.”

From which school’s acceptance to take, to how best to navigate a waitlist, to drafting a deferral letter, our services do not end when your application is completed. Our formal services end once you accept admission to a school, but we do hope you’ll stay in touch and join an active pool of SBC alums. Your success is our success and we want to hear about it!
