Vince helps you select and share your best stories to get admitted to top MBA programs

  • I have been a professional writing teacher and essay coach for over 20 years

  • As a published author and award winning essay writer, I understand how to convey convincing messages on paper

  • My own admissions results demonstrate the power of my application strategies. When I applied to college, I was admitted to every school, including Harvard, Stanford, Brown, Princeton, Yale, and UC Berkeley (with a full scholarship)

  • I continued that 100% success rate by being accepted by Harvard, Columbia, Northwestern and NYU when I applied for my education master's degree

  • In addition, I leverage my artistic background as a professional musician and actor to help my clients tell stories that will capture and hold an audience's attention

  • If you are willing to work hard, I might be able to help you find and express your individual voice and unique story to get noticed in a crowded field of highly competitive applicants

  • Please complete this intake form if you would like to discuss the possibility of working together

  • Please note that I have limited availability and cannot always guarantee an initial consultation

"You encouraged me to be genuine, and helped me find the right, true stories that captured who I am. In this way, you offer applicants not only an effective admissions advisory, but also a unique journey of self discovery and empowering dreams."

Harvard Business School Class of 2015, with Fulbright Scholarship (also admitted Stanford GSB)


"First, you limit the number of your clients so that you can maintain the high quality of your services while many other MBA consultants accept clients almost beyond their capacity. Second, you are really great 'catalyst.' Each question you asked me made me think and thus deepened my stories. Thanks to you, I was able to come up with excellent ideas that I could never come up with alone."

Kellogg Class of 2015 (also admitted Berkeley Haas)
