SAM'S STORY

Applying for MBAs was a horrific experience for me. After 5 years at investment bank Societe Generale, my profile was respectable but I was overwhelmed by the process and lacked confidence.

I set off on a whirlwind and expensive tour of top European and American business schools, asking probing and borderline rude questions of staff and students to narrow down my choices.

 

After deciding on a school, I over-analysed my writing until all flair was extinguished and my application was delayed to round 4. To prepare for interviews I sought help from mentors, colleagues and peers. All of them peppered me with interview questions for a job not an MBA.

And yet despite the haphazard application, I received an offer from Oxford University's Saïd Business school with a prestigious scholarship from the Saïd Foundation. That year I was elected Social Chair, named on the Dean's List and hired to a top high frequency trading firm.

The fact is that my application could have been dramatically improved and accelerated with experienced help. Having a partner who was emotionally-invested to hold my hand on the rollercoaster would have been the best investment I could have made.

Now I get my kicks from helping determined applicants to avoid my mistakes as a full-time MBA admissions consultant. Together we maximise your chances of being accepted into a life-changing MBA program with a scholarship.

This is how Sam Weeks Consulting was born.

"I  strongly recommend Sam to anyone needing support and guidance at any point during their MBA application process. I started working with Sam after being waitlisted at four schools I applied to in R1.

 

Sam and I came up with a waitlist plan for each school, hammered out my post-MBA career plans, and did a mock interview for a school I applied to in R3.

 

I  cannot stress the importance of Sam’s support during the most difficult months of an almost year-long application process that I had expected would only take three months. The re-application plan we came up with gave me incredible peace of mind, as I realized the mistakes I had made when I was trying to do all of this on my own.

 

I  am so thankful I hired Sam before I needed to reapply, however, because  I ended up receiving an offer from USC Marshall, the school I applied to in R3, that came with a full-tuition fellowship.

 

Again,  I recommend Sam to anyone needing help at any point during the process,  no matter how early or how late. He is more than just an admissions  consultant."
