Ranked MBA Admissions Counselor in 2021 on Poets&Quants


[My counselor] helped instill confidence in me for my applications and was vital in my navigation of the application process. She was instrumental in my acceptance into Columbia, along with my scholarship offers to Duke and Texas. I recommend Stratus to everyone who asks me what helped me the most in applying to law school.

Columbia Law Admit

Asking Stratus to assist with my applications was one of the best decisions I made all year. As someone from an atypical background, it was critical that I had someone to guide me through the process. They helped me portray who I am in a way that would resonate with Admissions Committee members. … I was presenting the best “me” possible.

Kellogg Admit

I was very happy with the help I received from Stratus. My counselor gave me helpful feedback and turned around edits in a timely fashion. I can say with confidence that my applications were significantly stronger because of his feedback and our rounds of editing. It was clear he has a lot of knowledge about the admissions process, and he was always able to convey his feedback in a direct and honest manner. Given how competitive the admissions process is, I’m really glad that I took advantage of this resource. The extra help goes a long way.
