Testimonials

Accepted to Wharton with fellowship!! Thank you! This is all you! You've helped change my life trajectory and I'm forever grateful.

Wharton MBA

When I reached out to Sage Admit, I felt like I was drowning in a complicated, opaque MBA application process. I interviewed 7 admissions consulting firms, and immediately felt the best connection with Lindsay thanks to her sincerity, enthusiasm, and clear mastery of the elite admissions space. Lindsay helped me tease out a unique narrative from my seemingly-disjointed, nontraditional background. Her essay support was especially on-point and speedy, quickly turning around with actionable and strategic feedback that helped me keep a coherent theme throughout my applications. What I most appreciated in working with Lindsay is that I no longer felt like I was going it alone - I had an experienced, savvy, kind partner. Lindsay turned the application process from an experience that I was suffering through to one of self-discovery and personal development for which I am eternally grateful. Thanks to our work together, I received a full-ride to a top-10 school, and $50,000 in scholarship at multiple other top programs.

Dartmouth Tuck MBA

The whole admissions process is quite complicated and filled with lots of unknowns. Lindsay simplified that process for me. She is a deep listener, a strategic outside-the-box thinker. She was fast in responding with direct, specific, actionable feedback - even during the busy end of year holidays. She always made it a point to be positive and constructive in her feedback. At some point, when we met during a mock interview, I told her she resembled a Japanese master of her craft, because of how she handles everything with excellence; she really is the best in the business at what she does.

Berkeley Haas MBA

Lindsay’s cogent, deliberate, and authentic approach was the true differentiator for my MBA application process. Her background in admissions makes her the perfect knowledge source. Through a series of game-changing tips, she provided the bedrock for my winning application. She listened, discerningly and empathetically, to my fragmented story and quickly whipped my essays into tiptop-tier shape! I owe so much of my success to her. Lindsay is also one of the kindest, most generous consultants I know. She somehow helped me believe in myself along the way so that I felt confident going into interviews. I can say assuredly, I couldn’t have done it without her!!

Columbia MBA

Thank you for believing in me and for setting the foundation by which these admissions were possible. This is our win. I am sincerely grateful.

Harvard MBA

This was my second time applying to Stanford, and Lindsay was my second consultant. The person I was working with before was unprofessional, disorganized, and over-priced. I got connected to Lindsay, and within the first few minutes of our first conversation, I was relieved. In two weeks, we were able to work through multiple iterations of my essays, short answers, and resume before the deadline. For the interview phase, we ran a mock interview, and she gave me homework and practice goals before the official day. When I got admitted, Lindsay was one of the first people I reached out to, and her excitement for me was so genuine. She truly cares about her clients, and she goes above and beyond to make a stressful experience positive. I cannot recommend Lindsay more highly. Overall, I would say these things: 1. An admission consultant is worth it. BUT 2. Not all admissions consultants are created equally. 3. Lindsay is a rare gem, and her services can undoubtedly turn a rejection into an admission!

Stanford GSB MSx

I'm so happy!! I could not have done it without you.

London Business School MBA

When I started working with Lindsay, I was a re-applicant who had been rejected or waitlisted at five top-10 schools the previous year. I was unsure if I would feel comfortable working with a consultant, but I connected with Lindsay immediately and was impressed by her flexibility and willingness to meet me where I was by focusing on the areas where I felt I needed the most advice—how I told my story and related it to my future career goals through my essays and interviews. (She was also incredibly helpful at every single aspect of the application process). Lindsay was amazing and quite simply everything I wanted in a consultant: thoughtful and insightful about what is b-school friendly, while dedicated to making sure I told my story in a way that felt honest and right for me. Furthermore, she is efficient, down-to-earth and positive. This combination of qualities makes her incredibly unique among consultants, and made my application process significantly more stress-free than the first time around. The difference in my results after working with Lindsay says it all: I was admitted to 4 out of 4 schools I applied to, including three in the top 10, and I was offered scholarships at all of them. I’m going to my dream school and Lindsay was invaluable in helping me getting there. I plan on recommending her emphatically to anyone and everyone I know applying to business school!!

Wharton Lauder MBA/MA

I was a re-applicant and my credentials, GMAT and GPA were on the lower end. I was discouraged in general and felt a little worn out. Talking to Lindsay and making a concrete game plan was the best decision I’ve ever made. She was brutally honest about what was attainable and what was a reach, but encouraged me the whole time to reach for the stars! If you are going in as a re-applicant, it can be hard mentally and emotionally but having a cheerleader and guide makes it so much better. Her insight with essays and interviews really helped shape what I wanted to do in business school. I took an offer that I never saw coming.

Vanderbilt Owen MBA

I had many consulting companies tell me getting into NYU Stern was near impossible with my low GPA and even lower GMAT scores, but Lindsay proved that wrong! After talking with a few options, Lindsay’s voice was the only one I heard that ignited a spark of hope. Lindsay is an absolute expert in her field and as close as you can get to working directly with admissions. Working with Lindsay not only enhanced my application, but also gave me confidence. Lindsay made this stressful process encouraging and led me out of a doubtful approach into a determined one. I can’t express my endorsement enough, Lindsay truly changed my future!

NYU Stern MBA Fashion & Luxury

Working with Sage Admit was a pleasure from beginning to end. Since the very beginning of engaging with Lindsay I received fast responses with actionable, tailored instructions, information and feedback. Lindsay has a special ability to tap into your story and help bring out the best in your profile. She’s extremely empathetic, kind, and hard-working. There were many times during the application process where I felt in a rut, but through her great suggestions and motivation she was able to pull me out of it and get back to writing the best essays I was capable of. Working with Lindsay, you feel like you’re working with someone who really cares. I couldn’t recommend working with her more. Without her help I wouldn’t have been able to organize all the moving parts to put together such a powerful application that ultimately got me into a dream school with a scholarship that I could not have expected.

Columbia MBA

I am so happy I worked with Lindsay. She is a clear communicator, highly accessible and breaks down exactly what you need to do in order to have the best chance at success. Her interview prep not only helped me gain admission off the waitlist to my program of choice, but it has made me feel more confident in how to approach preparing for any interviews in my future career. Totally worth the investment. I could not recommend her highly enough.

NYU Stern Part-time MBA

Lindsay's services were phenomenal. To say the business school application process is stressful is an understatement, but somehow Lindsay helped me feel confident and in control from start to finish. I couldn't recommend her work more highly - I submitted applications that I was proud of all because of Lindsay's help. When I received the acceptance call from Cornell, I cried tears of joy- Lindsay helped turn a dream into a reality.

Cornell Johnson MBA

Navigating the MBA admissions process requires significantly more time, insight and self-reflection than I could have ever imagined when I first began the application process. I spoke with a number of MBA admissions consulting companies, who told me that my “standard” Big Four Consulting background and undergraduate institution would preclude me from a good chance of admission to most of the top MBA programs. I was so lucky to have found Lindsay, who instantly gave me the confidence and support I needed in an extremely stressful and unfamiliar process. She took the time to really understand my background, experiences and goals and subsequently guide me through self-reflecting and developing a story that was deeply authentic to me. Lindsay’s turnaround on material review is extremely quick, and she was always there to guide me on miscellaneous application questions and reassure me along the way. Ultimately, I was accepted to Darden with a full-tuition scholarship, Kellogg-MMM, and Wharton. I have no doubt that Lindsay’s support, guidance and deep insights into what the Admissions Committee is looking for were instrumental to my admissions success. Lindsay is wonderful to work with – I cannot recommend her enough!

Kellogg MMM

I was hesitant to spend on an admissions consultant but the investment with Lindsay was beyond worth it. Her feedback on my essays and resume helped me reflect more deeply on my background and better articulate my goals for the future. My EMBA application improved significantly in just two weeks of working together. Not only did I get into the program of my choice, but I feel more energized to advocate for myself in my career. In fact, this week I have a second interview for my dream job; I know my revamped resume and application essay, which I repurposed into a cover letter, helped me get noticed by the hiring manager.

NYU Stern EMBA

Looking back, I would not have been able to do this application without Lindsay. She was a deep listener who helped me articulate my concerns, needs, and values in the language of business school. She holds key and specific insight that ended up being crucial. And most importantly, she ingrained in me the sense that I have reason to be proud of my experiences; she established within me a professional self-esteem that I think does not come naturally to a lot of young women. So, I feel grateful to her not just for helping me go to Columbia, but more importantly for helping me see my own professional value.

Columbia MBA

Lindsay is a thorough professional. She not only helped me in fine-tuning my application essays, but also mentored me in choosing the most suitable career path. I made it into my first choice and owe this success to Lindsay!

University of Toronto Rotman MBA

Lindsay is an incredible asset and resource for all things MBA. So incredible, in fact, that she was editing my CBS essays on CHRISTMAS EVE so I could make Columbia's early January deadline. She is the woman you want on your team!

Columbia EMBA

I cannot think of a better person to partner with on your business school application journey. I say journey because it’s a long and stressful process, and having Lindsay there every step of the way added intangible value. Lindsay was responsive and genuine and a pleasure to work with. As former Ad Com herself, she offers an insider’s perspective which is extremely advantageous. I had lower than average GMAT scores and a non-traditional background. She helped me highlight my strengths and craft a story that was both unique and compelling as to why business school made sense for me. She was worth her weight in gold and there’s no way I would have gotten 3 interviews at top 15 schools and acceptance into 2 of them (including my dream school!) without her help.

UCLA Anderson MBA

Lindsay was a true partner during the entire admissions process. She was always available and gave constructive, meaningful, and action-oriented feedback on every piece of collateral I wrote. I wouldn't have been able to pivot my career and land with a fellowship without her guidance; I can't recommend her enough!

Boston College Carroll MBA

Lindsay is fantastic! As prepared as I thought I was for my MBA admissions journey, there were several unexpected curveballs that could have thrown me off course. Fortunately, Lindsay's ongoing support kept me on track and helped me obtain an admit from my top choice school. Her thoughtful insights and quick turnaround time helped me craft an authentic and compelling story. Moreover, Lindsay provided encouragement when it was needed most. Her warmth, compassion and professionalism were invaluable throughout this process.

Berkeley Haas Evening & Weekend MBA

Coming from a non-traditional background, I didn’t feel like I had anyone I could go to who knew what schools were looking for. Lindsay was that person… I ended up adding three more schools to my package- Lindsay was that indispensable! She is extremely organized, responsive regardless of the time of day, and an editing whiz who would whip even my most scatter-brained essays into shape. Most importantly, every meeting was a delight because I truly enjoyed working with her. Throughout such an overwhelming, long, and tumultuous process, it was invaluable to feel like I truly had someone in my corner.

NYU Stern MBA

Lindsay made me feel confident in all aspects of my application and was the voice of reason throughout, keeping me on track while managing my doubts and questions. I had an ambitious timeline and she helped me meet it without feeling overwhelmed.

Babson MBA

Lindsay helped me get into one of the most competitive MSFE programs! She is very resourceful, responds quickly, and guided me through my applications and interviews with patience. The most crucial piece of advice she gave me was when we were preparing for interviews; she told me to 'speak from my heart'. I continue to rely on this today.
