Featured Testimonial: Columbia EMBA
I am sure that I could not have gotten this far without Bryan’s thorough support and precise advice that he had shaped through abundant experience as a journalist of media giants and cultivated through an incomparable record of assistance in applications. Since it was the first time for me to apply to any MBA programs, I didn’t have any clue what I should write nor which part of my experiences I should emphasize in each essay. Thus I found it very comfortable working with Bryan since he values direct conversations to understand each individual, to elicit valuable message that he/she should deliver through essays, and to find out the most convincing ways to do so. I met several counselors, but Bryan was the only person who told me with confidence, “This draft doesn’t sound like you”.
With that said, Bryan does not revise drafts into his preferences because he also understands that it would interfere with our ability to make such messages our own, giving unnatural impressions at the next step: interviews. Thus I like the style Bryan adopts in supporting writing essays since it enabled me to go through interviews with confidence for I knew what I wanted to deliver.
I worked together with Bryan for more than half a year. Having been admitted to one of the top programs in the world has been a remarkable outcome. But working with him has also given me valuable lessons in writing convincing and persuasive paragraphs that I can utilize even in my daily work, and it is, in my opinion, the most appreciable gift he has given me.
