Below are two testimonials, one from a woman who did her JD/MBA at Northwestern, and a man who did his MBA at Cornell, both with engineering backgrounds.

After finishing my MS in bioengineering, I consulted with Robert about entering the field of patent law. He educated me on the process of becoming a patent agent, and after I passed the US patent bar (also with his guidance) he helped placed me at a prominent Silicon Valley law firm. Robert then counseled me on the process of applying to JD/MBA programs, and with his help on the application essays, I was accepted to my dream top 5 program.

Not only do I doubt I would have been accepted to Northwestern without his help during the professional school application process, I would not have been n a position to credibly apply to such a program without his previous career guidance.  I owe much of my career success to him, and will consider a mentor for life. — Northwestern JD/MBA graduate

While working as an engineer at a Silicon Valley startup, I consulted with Robert in order to select and apply to MBA programs. Robert’s guidance in how to apply and how to draft the application essays was at best invaluable, and at worst worth many times what I paid. I seriously question whether I would have been accepted to a top program such as Cornell without his guidance. Not only was advice precise and of immense value, his attitude was congenial and supportive.  I would recommend him, without hesitation, to anyone thinking about and applying to MBA programs. — Cornell MBA graduate
