About Stacy Blackman Consulting

Stacy Blackman Consulting is a team of consultants running a full-service company. Their stated goals include reducing the anxiety of the applications process, figuring out the best way to show your personal story, and genuinely caring about their audience. They will not work with anyone they don’t believe they can help.

Basics

Stacy Blackman Consulting offers three main services and several minor additions. The major options are as follows:

  • The All-In Package is their version of the comprehensive admissions package, and starts by working to match applicants with the consultant who can work best with them. However, this company also emphasizes the value of having extra eyes looking at things, and many members may collaborate on each part of the application process.
  • The Plan Ahead Package is intended for people who are at least one year away from starting the application process. The goal of this process is to actively strengthen an applicant’s candidacy and improve the execution of their applications. The package offers an automatic discount of $350 if an All-In Package is purchased later.
  • For those who don’t need quite as much help, Hourly Consulting may be purchased on specific issues, as well as a list of ways that this service is normally used.

Stacy Blackman Consulting Cost and Contact Info

The All-In Package starts at $4,675 for one school, with the option of adding as many additional schools as the applicant would like. The price for each additional school slowly decreases as more are purchased, and a discount is offered if more than one school is purchased up-front. An automatic refund of $1,000 is provided if applicants do not succeed on at least one application when help with four or more schools is purchased.

The Plan Ahead package is a flat rate of $1,350, while hourly services start at $315/hour with a two-hour minimum. The price per-hour decreases as more hours are purchased.

    I worked with Caryn from Stacy Blackman Consulting to apply R1 in 2017 after having unsuccessfully applied to five schools in the first round of the previous year. Caryn was on top of every detail and made sure that we stuck to our deadlines, which was critical applying to five programs no matter how far in advance we started our planning. She absolutely has a mind for this work and was able to position my experience to fit with each individual school. Most importantly though, she helped me think through where I had been and where I really wanted to go and that made my application all the more authentic and genuine. In the end, I got accepted into Columbia! Thanks Caryn!

    Sending over the highest praise for the Blackman team. I learned a lot, worked hard, and was admitted to 3 of my 4 schools. I loved working with Lisa, a former Admissions Officer, and her style was a great fit for me. She was very confident and strategic about how to use my different themes and stories and that gave me confidence too. She never made me feel like I was pestering her with too many questions and that’s huge because I did have a lot of questions. She was responsive, very timely and very cool! We also pulled in others to guide us. I also realized all that prep work with the application helped me to start Kellogg with focus and productivity. The 40K scholarship was a fantastic outcome too.
    On a scale from 1 to 10, I give them a 12!

    I am an international applicant with a non-traditional background. I applied to several programs last year, but failed to get admittance. Before approaching SBC, I did not have a good understanding of my strengths or feasible career goal. My journey started with a 30-min phone call with Esther for an initial evaluation. Esther has the talent and acumen to quickly summarize the main issues in my previous applications and point out the key theme to draft my story and career goal. Her suggestions became the foundation of my application strategy. She is the reason why I chose SBC instead of other prestigious MBA consulting firms.

    I was then assigned to my primary consultant and opted for the comprehensive 3-school package. SBC truly cares about matching you with the right consultant as my partner is a former Adcom in one of my target schools. She was instrumental in guiding me to refine my career goals and craft my story from an Adcom’s perspective. She persuaded me to visit the schools and talk to current students, which I found to be very critical in writing a genuine essay that stands out.

    SBC’s Flight Tester was a game changer for me. They bring in a 2nd consultant to review the entire application package for my first school. In my case, Caryn, a former Adcom for that specific school reviewed my application. She responded quickly and gave vital advice on my essays. I honed in on her message and made critical changes to my essay based on her feedback, which I think secured my admission for that school.

    As a non-traditional applicant with a very niche major and in one of the most competitive international application pools, my problem has always been getting over that initial bump of acquiring an interview invite. I am glad to say that the SBC team was able to get me interview invitations from all three schools. I was admitted to two schools with a large amount of scholarship to cover 50-80% of the tuition (a great return on my SBC investment)! This would not have been possible without my team of super consultants: Esther, Caryn, and my consultant. I highly recommend SBC for applicants like me who have great potential, but do not know how to package themselves well and stand out in the application pool.

    I worked with Beth Tidmarsh at Stacy Blackman and she really helped me manage the application process and feel confident in the application I was submitting. She provided helpful essay feedback and application guidance, she was timely in her responses, and she was proactive in letting my know when her schedule was tight.

    I’m a strong writer but I didn’t know much about what was expected from an MBA application essay, and Beth helped me put my stories in their best light and noted where I could add more information or remove confusing or unnecessary content. Beth also helped guide me on what to expect throughout the process, gave me advice for my interviews, and provided support during the stressful and uncertain process of waiting to hear back after submitting apps and completing interviews.

    I felt like Beth was personally invested in my success and her help improved my applications and gave me the confidence to perform at my best in interviews. I would strongly recommend her as a consultant.

    I had the pleasure of being paired with Caryn Altman and truly know I wouldn’t have gotten into two top schools (Booth & Kellogg) without her support, patience, project management skills, and ability to see how my application worked as a whole. I worked with her on 3 schools and applied to another two on my own using some of the same strategies I developed with her. Start to finish SBC was a great investment from my initial point of contact, to my flight tester (Beth who is a former adcom), to additional folks who provided a second opinion on essays for me when Caryn and I disagreed (not often!). SBC is absolutely the way to go if you’re thinking about working with a consulting company. They know what they’re doing and all the positive outcomes vouch for that. Thanks again for everything!!!!!

    Sending over the highest praise for the Blackman team. I learned a lot, worked hard, and was admitted to 3 of my 4 schools. I’ve chosen to accept Kellogg and declined Wharton and CBS.
    I loved working with my consultant and her style was a great fit for me. She was very confident and strategic about how to use my different themes and stories and that gave me confidence too. She never made me feel like I was pestering her with too many questions and that’s huge because I did have a lot of questions. She was responsive, very timely and very cool! The Adcom review was also really valuable. Feel great about what we put together and about the results. On a scale from 1 to 10, I give them a 12!
