I had the luck to work with Dia for the preparation of GMAT and TOEFL tests. Not only did she perfectly organize the study material and gave a valuable input on how to strategically approach the test, but she also provided me with moral support during this challenging period. Dia is a really insightful person and has the amazing ability to “read” people; only after a few classes, she had already understood the ins and outs of me. I had the priviledge of having her as a mentor, which was the ultimate take away of our cooperation.

Also, I had the chance to work with Thomas for the preparation of my essays. For his part, Thomas was very responsive, supportive, and to the point. He helped me define my top choice schools and draw my overall application approach. My essays came out solid, structured, and a tad emotional, which aparently was one of the key success factors.

Throughout the preparation and application period, both of them coached me, introduced me to admission officers, and alumni of schools, which helped me understand the culture of each institution and decide whether I was a good fit for each one of them.

Finally, when I had to make the big decision, both Dia and Thomas provided me with a clear direction and helped me keep the decision making process aligned with my personal and professional goals. I am finally attending one of the best Graduate Business schools in the world and I can say I owe them a big part of this success. Thank you very much Dia and Thomas!
