Hi everyone,

Is Applicantlab really useful for MBA preparation? I considered to try Applicantlab, however I'm worried if it doesn't worth.

Amazing resource for essays and interview preparation, totally recommend.

Highly recommend! I only used ApplicantLab and had friends (those who did an MBA and those who didn’t) read my essays. No coach, except for 1 interview prep session. I got into M7s.
Caveats - I’m a strong writer, and I managed my time to meet deadlines.

110% worth it. Best money you’ll spend. Honestly just do it and don’t think twice about it.

It was the best investment I made during the app process, and there’s a free trial if you want to get a feel for it before paying. Also happy to answer Qs over DM / provide a referral code for a discount

Useful MBA coach consultants cost like $150-300/hr. Applicant Lab’s paltry fee is worth its weight in gold. If you don’t have a referral link for a discounted code, feel free to DM.

It’s pretty simple but hits on the important points. Low cost relative to other options so in that sense, it is good value. It likely won’t single handedly be a game changer but is definitely useful for folks new to the admissions game / don’t have insider sources.

Truthfully it was a massive game changer for me

I’m heavily considering and would love to transition from HR to Employment Law (employer side), however, that would require law school and I’m already in debt from getting my masters in HR. I’d like to get some insight on this though. Has anyone here ever made this type of transition or know of anyone who has? Was it worth it? Any regrets? Does it seem silly for me to do this having a masters without knowing if I’ll truly like it or not?

Thanks guys!
