Each member of our team has different strengths and can offer relevant information and insight to help you present your best qualities in your application.

MBA Four-School Guarantee

We at Stratus invest in your MBA application goals like no other admissions consulting firm. If you are working with us on four or more business school applications in Round 1 and are not accepted to any of those MBA programs, we will support your application to two more schools in Round 2—at no additional cost to you! That’s how committed we are to your success.

Ranked MBA Admissions Counselor in 2021 on Poets&Quants


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!

Columbia Business School Admit

[My counselor] has been available from dawn to dusk to go over drafts of my essays, help me develop my applicant file, and answer any questions I may have. Most importantly, her feedback has helped me stay calm and collected throughout the application process. I applied to 12 law schools and have so far heard back positively from nine, including two of my reach schools. I would highly recommend Stratus’s services to anyone who is unsure or nervous about the law school application process.

Law School Admit

The school I’m now attending is a huge testament to how fortunate I am to have worked with you, and yet, given how much I feel I’ve benefited from your advice throughout this process, my ultimate decision is just another way this experience exceeded my wildest expectations. Thank you for such a phenomenal experience.
