Want to know what it's like working with me? Here's some candid unedited testimonies from people I've coached
Sam (Ming-Feng) Hsu, accepted to dream MBA program with scholarship - USC Marshall ('25) - Higher Education
"I met Lauren while applying for the Full-Time MBA program for the second consecutive year. I tried to apply on my own for the first time but only ended up on the waitlist for several of my targeted schools. So, in the following cycle, I reached out to different MBA consultants seeking more professional guidance. And I knew right away that Lauren was exactly the one I was looking for. I can guarantee that it was one of the best decisions I've ever made in my entire life.
The application process was quite stressful, especially for a reapplicant like me. I was very uncertain about my candidacy and worried about my profile being too "untraditional" to the business schools. I even considered applying to other schools that were "lower in the ranking" for safety. However, Lauren stayed extremely positive and convinced me that I should keep focusing on my initial targets. And I'm glad that I took her advice. Due to Lauren's assistance, I was admitted to my dream school USC Marshall (by which I was rejected last year), along with a great scholarship.
I know Lauren is known for her positive energy, but she is so much more than that. She is incredibly excellent at storytelling. And one of the most challenging parts of the MBA application is telling a good story about oneself. From essays to interview responses, Lauren helped me fashion all my materials into a cohesive whole. We brainstormed, discussed strategies, and did as many mock interviews as I wanted. She is also very insightful. I could always take something away from her every time we spoke. I couldn't express how thankful I am to have the opportunity to work with Lauren. To me, she is not only a consultant who provides tons of valuable advice but also a caring friend who will put in every effort to help you succeed. Although we only talked virtually (since Lauren was always traveling around the world), I'm hoping to meet and give my sincere thanks to Lauren in person (if we have a chance to catch up in her hometown LA).
My experience working with Lauren was really delightful. I highly recommend her to anyone applying to a higher education program or seeking a personal coach to help them overcome any life challenges."
