Satisfied Customers


Working with Stratus Admissions was one of the better decisions I have ever made. Not only did they do their job—get me into one of my dream schools (Berkeley Haas)—they did so much more. Thanks to Stratus, I have reflected on my unique career and life goals in such detail that I have gone from having a vague idea about what I want to do to knowing concrete plans that I am so excited to pursue. They also helped me figure out what my resume gaps were and find ways to address the gaps. The result has been me getting more involved with the community, creating one of the most rewarding experiences I have had in recent years.

Berkeley Haas Admit

I can’t thank you enough for your support. … You served both as a sounding board and an influential voice throughout the process. I have said many times, I shudder to think of what my application would have looked like without you.

Stanford GSB Admit

I highly recommend working with Stratus Admissions. My counselor worked with me to set a realistic timeline, was always flexible, and was great about keeping me on track. She was extremely responsive and knowledgeable about the programs and would reach out to her peers at Stratus to help. I was ultimately accepted to three top-ten programs and will be headed to my dream school this fall!
