About MBAPrepAdvantage

MBAPrepAdvantage is a full-service consulting firm that claims a 95% success rate at getting candidates into one of their top schools. Most of the work is done by founder Michael Cohan, a prolific teacher and regularly-cited expert on MBA admissions.


MBAPrepAdvantage offers nine primary consultation services. Unlike many other consulting firms, these services are only available through an hourly consulting model, and there are no “package” offers. On the plus side, this means clients only pay for the time they actually use. However, clients who need a particularly high amount of support may find that the final charge is higher than they were expecting.

The available services cover everything from early application planning and consultation to thorough essay editing, strategies for letters of recommendation, and preparing for interviews. They also offer help with waitlist response, ding analysis, and reapplying to the same program.

These services are also tailored to the school that each applicant applies for. As noted on their website, different schools have different application requirements, and what works for one school may not be applicable to another. The coaching also helps improve delivery and displaying both confidence and charisma, two attributes that many schools are interested in seeing.

The website also offers a number of free resources, from advice on career paths to data on individual business schools.

    Excellent service provided by MBA admissions consultant. Definitely someone who knows a ton about the MBA admissions game and he’s someone who knows exactly how to help a person dig deep to pull out an outstanding application. I am thoroughly impressed by the way I was able to showcase my true potential through my applications.

    I just heard from HBS and I’ve been accepted in Round 3!! I found Michael’s input really useful, both with the guidance on essay direction and interview prep. You can count on him to be relentlessly logical. Be warned, he will poke holes in your carefully constructed arguments so he’s definitely not for the faint-hearted :). My advice to anyone working with Michael: he’s great, reflect on his advice seriously and craft your own story in your own voice.

    Michael was instrumental in my MBA admissions process and I could not recommend him more highly. He truly went above and beyond to help me craft the best application possible. Having also worked with another reputable consultant briefly, I can say that there really was no comparison between the two and that in working with Michael you are receiving the highest quality product available. He completely transformed my resume from a resume that was a barely readable to a polished final version that best highlights my skills and experience. My essays similarly shined after a lot of work with Michael in a way that would have been nearly impossible without his guidance. He is there whenever you need him throughout the process. Michael even went beyond his typical duties as a consultant and helped me to mitigate a challenging situation with one of my recommendations. I can confidently say that I would not have secured admission at two top 15 schools without Michael’s help. In conclusion, Michael is truly the best of the best in MBA consulting and is someone you really want by your side if you are trying to get into the top programs. Thanks for everything Michael!

    Michael is a magician when it comes to editing and putting across the right ideas. I strongly recommend his end to end consulting. It is worth every single penny. I chose him right after my first consultation which was so insightful and different from the very general and sugarcoated feedback I received from other first consultations offered by various top MBA consultants. He pointed out the tiniest negative details on my resume, in my thought process and stories, pushed me to think differently and helped me structure the essays. There were times when I could not think of any situation in my life that matched the essay prompt and he would talk to me casually about work and personal life. He helped me identify my essay prompts during such conversations. He knows exactly what the AdComs find interesting and worthwhile. His knowledge on various subjects, quotes and current affairs is vast. Many a times, he linked my stories to greater things happening in the world of business and sustainability which added significant value to my essays.
    Michael has been the fairy godmother to my dream MBA application.
    Merci beaucoup Michael!

    I used Michael’s resume editing service while applying to business school. He reviewed every line of my resume and provided detailed feedback about formatting and content. He wanted each bullet point to be a value-add. By the end of the revision cycle, it transformed into a more results oriented, impactful resume. Thanks Michael. I’ll be attending Chicago Booth in the fall!”
