Andy note: Sanford Kreisberg is the founder of hbsguru.com, a business school consultancy specialing in HBS, Stanford, Wharton, and Columbia and Chicago.
He has master's from Harvard in English and was the Director of Communication at MIT/Sloan Business School for a very short time before realizing he would rather tell the truth about business schools than write Twitter spam, even though Twitter had not yet been invented.
This past year he didof over 100 HBS applicants (out of a total 1800 interviews granted by the school -- that means more than 5 percent of the entire interviewed cohort) and his knowledge of what it takes to get into HBS is based in part on that, and in part on 15 years of being a business school consultant with hundreds of clients admitted to H/S/W.
What your fellow WSO Members have said:
Sandy is one of the very few consultants who know what's going on. He has a masterful understanding of the admissions process and give a very honest accurate assessment of one's chances. His poets and quants series is AMAZING. I think sandy will add tremendous amounts of value to WSO.
I think he is one of the best in the business - especially with respect to HBS. I had a lengthy conversation with him about a week ago and was impressed. One of the things I like about him is that he is very blunt and does not hold back valuable information like most other admissions consultants do.
Here's what he will be talking about:
-H/S/W applications, admissions and how to answer their new applications/essays
-How to not screw up your interviews
-General application questions
