Accepted Overview


About Accepted

Accepted is an admissions consultation service based in Southern California, but with consultants all over North America and additional branches in Europe and Asia for students interested in studying overseas. In addition to MBA consultation, Accepted has personnel specializing in Medical School, Law School, Graduate Programs, and general college admissions.


Accepted offers a wide variety of services, including:

  • Admissions Consulting
  • Interview Help
  • Resume Assistance
  • Editing (Letters of Recommendation, essays, etc.)

Their goal is to provide you, the applicant, with the knowledge and resources necessary to create a compelling application. While they will not write content (such as essays) for you, they are willing to thoroughly review your work, and claim a turnaround time of two days for any editing process.

Accepted Cost and Contact Info

Prices vary depending on the service, but on average many services are available for $340 an hour, or $440 for rush availability. School-specific packages are available starting at $4,750. They do have a refund policy, but do not pay refunds for work already performed.

In addition to paid services, Accepted also offers a number of free guides and school-specific information. Some of the latter is accessible directly on their website and includes basic data about schools, such as acceptance rates and average GPAs, while other information requires your name and email address before it will be provided.

Accepted can be contacted by email at onlinesupport@accepted.com, by phone at 1 (310) 815-9533, or through a contact form on their website at www.accepted.com.

    It is very helpful to have admission consultation services, however the cost is high compared with scholarship hunting students.

                        Lillian Whittaker:

                        Accepted was a great value and (I think) the main reason I got into NYU’s MBA program. I spoke with one advisor with almost a decade of recruiting experience that really helped me tighten up my essay!

                        I used as many Accepted resources as possible and they were helpful for getting started and getting organized. It also helped to assess the different schools and what they were looking for which ultimately helped me narrow down my search. The paid services were quite expensive but the free resources are great!

                        • MBA application & school advice: Remember why you want to get your MBA and don't forget that narrative. It helps you stay focused through the entire process. Also engage with the schools as often as you can. It shows your interest and helps you learn about the programs.

                        Kaley Pichura:

                        Accepteds main priority is you the student, they are there for you and want to help ensure your success. The employees and websites that Accepted uses are easy to follow and always helpful. I would recommend this admissions counsel to anyone and everyone who is applying to schools or thinking about it in the future.

                        • MBA application & school advice: Don't bite off more you can chew or you'll burn yourself out. Start off each semester with a healthy and efficient routine. Evaluate what worked and what didn't at the end of each semester and use your evaluation to improve your process.

                        • MBA Program & Grad Year: SNHU MBA - Project Management 2022
                        • MBA application & school advice: Follow what interests you. The Goal to succeeding post Grad is to understand what drives your focus and how can you beat out folks who are already participating in that area. In school, network, network and network some more... the more you talk to people the more you learn that lives are different, people think different and people even buy products differently. When you are looking at school programs, find what works for YOU, not what looks great on paper. Success from a program comes from what you get out of it, not always what name you walk away with.

                        Accepted’s free resources have a vast amount of information available to cover nearly any question you might have about MBA essays. I found the school-specific essay guides to be particularly helpful in giving me guidance so I didn’t feel quite so overwhelmed staring at a blank page with no idea where to start.

                        • MBA application & school advice: Pursuing an MBA gives you an ability that is too often ignored - the ability to ask for something on the grounds that you "are an MBA student." You can more easily get informational interviews, obtain data, attend conferences, and open more doors than when you are in the professional world with ulterior motives assumed based on your job title and company. Use this freedom to explore new opportunities, meet new leaders, and figure out what it really is you want to do.

                        • MBA application & school advice: Be very insightful and yourself when you apply. Explain your goals and interests with full honesty. For school, stay studious and get in a routine sooner than later. Most of us wait anywhere from 1-5 years to go back so try to remember how you did undergrad and step it up a few notches. Get in study groups and make friends in your cohort or program. Also utilize your professors office hours.

                        Used the free resources online from this service; super insightful and comprehensive. I only used free online resources and this site was integral to developing a complete picture of each school to which I applied and their unique applications. I was most definitely able to better tailor my applications for each school because of the free information provided online from this website. I also used the free information provided by the multiple other websites recommended by this mba insight online website.

                        I used Accepted to edit my applications’ essays. I found it incredibly helpful to get a fresh set of eyes on my essays to see if they make sense and flow. When I would reread my own essays, I would fill in the gaps in my head since I have additional information about my life. An admission person at a school will not have that additional info. I worked with CIndy who was very helpful and went above and beyond simple editing.

                        My Advisor gave me sound advise which really helped me make a decision towards which school, program, and length. The ease to apply made a Difference. My decision also hinged on the reputation of the program. The notability of the program. My advisor really helped me and guided me in the right direction.

                        Admissions consulting was critical for me since I am an international student that did not have any experience with the process. The services provided helped me get into my top choice business school and guided me through the whole process. I highly recommend investing in this type of service if you are an international student that is not familiar with the process of applying to a school in the United States.

                        • MBA Program & Grad Year: COLUMBIA BUSINESS SCHOOL/2019
                        • MBA application & school advice: One of the best decisions I took was to start the application process soon and apply for early decision - I believe this makes a difference especially for international students.

                        Juan Fernandez:

                        Accepted did a great job. My consultor was exceptionally helpful. She was always willing to talk about my applications and always gave me insight about the schools I was applying to.
                        In terms of the essays, she was super responsive and always provided great feedback and markup. In a couple of days or even less time, I would have my essays back with tons of added-value comments.
                        Furthermore, she even helped me with the rest of the applications process (shorter essays about past jobs, future professional aspirations, etc.).
                        Accepted gave me the extra boost I needed to make it to Bschool.

                        • MBA application & school advice: Don't get stuck on Gmat/Toefl/Applications. It is better to have a well balanced applications than a great Gmat and a not that good application for example.

                        Gautam Arora:

                        For preparation for GMAT I strictly followed the Manhattan Series and did all the possible free mock tests available out there. By the end my average mock test scores was hanging in 750 to 760 range, though the day of the test I could only convert a 730. What I believe took me aback was the verbal part. The questions on verbal section weren’t the type that I had practiced before, thus would advise anyone going to write a GMAT any time soon, look for alternatives as far as verbal part is considered.
                        As far as working with Accepted goes, they were really instrumental in my acceptance at Johnson. I did cast a really wide net and got every possible support from the team to enable the same. For all folks out there if your profile falls in the standard profile as per the current industry situation, its better to ensure that your GMAT score looks breath taking.

                        • MBA application & school advice: Ensure you are maxing on the GMAT score. Cast a wide net. Network early.
