Don't Take Our Word For It. Hear Their Stories.

"Inspira has such an extensive network of former adcom members and current interview panel members that their advice and intimate knowledge of the inner workings of business schools is a gold mine of information. Their team worked extensively with me to position each application in a way that met the specific criteria of each business school. Also, there were no restrictions on the number of edits or calls that I could ask for. This created such an open environment to discuss new ideas rather than being worried about the time on the clock."

“The Inspira team are really skilled storytellers and can find a way to create an intriguing narrative for even the most stereotypical candidate. I studied economics in undergrad at Yale, spent two years in banking, and now work in PE. I struggled to write a story that differentiated myself from my peers (who I knew were also applying to the same schools) and did not know how to make my path seem more unique. When I began working with Inspira, they spent a whole week just learning about my story and asking questions that got me to think in new ways about my life decisions. They used these conversations to create a persona doc, where they outlined my own personal history but in a way that was distinct and showed a clear path of professional progress. This really helped reframe my perspective of my own experience and enabled me to write application documents that showed why I was a unique applicant and why I was a good fit for my top schools. Their help with storytelling was a game changer for me!”

"No marketing, no salesy bs. Inspira is a pure results-oriented admission consulting firm. I worked with them on applications for 4 schools and was so impressed with their honest approach. Their advice on school selection was spot on and was backed by data and sound reasoning. The team that helped me with my applications included a former adcom member from HBS, a writing expert from Wharton, and my graduate coach, who has an IB background like me. No other firm has such a strong team and this was clearly reflected in how good my application turned out to be. Their inside information was incredibly helpful, and many of the questions that the HBS interview panel asked me were the same ones that Inspira had prepared me for. I was so impressed by their insights into the business schools."

"I was originally working with a different MBA admissions group, but ended up switching to Inspira Futures only five weeks before the Stanford deadline. It seemed risky at the time, but I ended up being so glad I made the change! Inspira went above and beyond, even working with me on weekends and evenings to ensure that my application was perfect. We went through multiple rounds of revisions and the Inspira team was always willing to hop on a call to brainstorm ways to include new anecdotes or ways to rephrase the experiences on my resume. They created such a friendly environment that I never worried if I was asking too many questions or asking for too much support in such a short time frame. Thank you so much guys!"

"As an international student from China, I was completely new to the MBA application process for US B schools. I really liked Inspira’s onboarding process which helps candidates like me get familiar with what different business schools are looking for. They also matched me with a consultant who perfectly understood what I needed. My consultant had work experience in China (and even spoke Mandarin!) and went to school in the US, so he was able to quickly identify differences in Chinese versus American application processes to make sure I didn’t make any of the mistakes common for international applicants. My consultant even helped develop a guide for my recommenders, who had limited experience writing the types of recommendations that schools like HBS expect. With their help I was able to frame my international experiences in a way that the HBS committee would not only understand but see as an asset for their incoming class. I would not have got into Harvard without his help!"

“I would not have gotten into Harvard Business School without help from Inspira. I went to a non-target undergrad and my work experience was at a non-blue chip company, so I did not think that I had a chance at a top school. But Inspira’s team has such a well-structured process that they made the stressful MBA application feel straightforward. They helped me decide which schools to target, showed me how to look at my history to find the best stories to use in my essays, and even shared advice on how to pick the best recommenders. Each phase of the journey was catered to serve my needs. I am so thankful for the Inspira team!”

“I was initially hesitant to get a consultant and spend that extra money, but on a whim decided to speak to an Inspira consultant for the 30 minute free consultation. I was really impressed by their deep knowledge of the MBA admissions process and their ability to talk me through my history in order to quickly identify accomplishments and anecdotes to highlight on my application. I ended up applying to six schools through Inspira, and got into all of them! Looking back, the investment was worth it because I don’t think I would have been able to get into my top choices without their help and I would’ve regretted not giving the process my all. I’m so excited for my next steps and am so grateful for the help of the Inspira team!”

"I spoke with 12 MBA admission consultants. Each firm used the “free 30-minute consultation” to sell their services and urged me to wire $10,000, whereas Inspira's call focused only on my background and the "Why" behind my decision to pursue an MBA. On top of that, unlike every other firm, Inspira DOES NOT ask for full upfront payment.  They only charged me on a per-go basis which allowed me to manage my cash flow. They were incredibly flexible with my hectic schedule and the quality of their work was top-notch. I got into Wharton with a $92,000 scholarship!"

“I spoke with a bunch of admission firms before deciding to work with Inspira. The Inspira team seemed uniquely well-qualified, dedicated, and truly passionate about ensuring their candidates get into their dream schools. The consultant I worked with understood my professional background so well that just through the introductory call she was able to give me pointers on how to craft my story - all before we even started a formal engagement. I found that the biggest difference between Inspira and other groups is that the Inspira team is made up of former adcom members and senior industry professionals from relevant industries who can craft a compelling story based on my work. My background is in management consulting, so I really appreciated getting to work with a former Parthenon EY consultant who knew how to articulate those experiences on my application. I think this help was crucial in getting into Booth, where I will be going this fall!”

"I started with Inspira in order to review an application for one school and thought that all I needed was a quick review for structure in order to calm my nerves about the process. Once I started with Inspira, I realized I could really take all of my applications to the next level. My team was able to dissect my ideas in a way that I hadn’t been able to see and they connected the dots between my experiences so that I was able to present a coherent story in my application. My consultant really took the time to understand what I was trying to convey and tag teamed well with former adcom members on Inspira’s team to provide me a real life evaluation angle. I also loved the way that the team did not hesitate to push me. They demanded perfection but stayed supportive and encouraging. I am certain that I would not have received a scholarship to Columbia if it was not for their help. Working with Inspira was the best decision I made through the whole MBA process!"

FAQ's

I already have a pre pharmacy advisor at my college. How is this service different from what they provide?

A lot of colleges and universities have pre pharmacy advisors and additional resources for pre pharmacy students, but the following structural issues are very prevalent:

  • Not enough advisors: Unfortunately, most colleges and universities don’t have enough resources to hire the number of pre pharmacy advisors needed to offer personalized service to students. Pre pharmacy advisors are usually well meaning, but they can’t do much if the advisor to student ratio is 1:200 or more.
  • Quality is often lacking: Colleges and universities don’t have the resources to hire pharmacists, pharmacy school students, residents, or DPharm’s from top pharmacy schools. Our team consists of people who have been through the pharmacy school admissions process and successfully cracked it by getting into a top school. They have served on admissions committees and know what it’s like to be in pharmacy school. Their advice is personalized, informed, and relevant.
  • Not enough personalization: Pre pharmacy advisors aren’t able to create long-term personalized plans for their advisees. Every student goes through ups and downs during their college career. You might not be able to register for a course you wanted to do. It’s junior year, you just realized that you’re interested in drama and now you want to join the drama club. Adapting to these changes requires an in-depth understanding of a student’s background and preferences.

We help bridge some of these gaps that exist in today’s pre pharmacy advising infrastructure. You can think of us as a more informed, customized, and in-depth pre pharmacy advising service. Our advisors are accomplished, knowledgeable, and passionate about mentoring and guiding you. They have faced some of the same dilemmas that you are facing. Most importantly, they aren’t working with hundreds of students and can give you the personalized attention you need and deserve.

Why would I need a structured pre pharmacy advising plan like the one your offer?

Applying to pharmacy school is akin to running a marathon. Doing well requires a lot of upfront preparation. Your success on race day will be determined by the years of effort you’ve put into being prepared for race day. 

Similarly, pharmacy schools look at what you’ve done across the last few years. They want to see how you’ve grown not just as a student, but also as a leader, and what makes you uniquely positioned to succeed in pharmacy school.

In addition to these more variable tasks, there are must haves such as getting a good PCAT score and engaging the right recommenders at the right time.

You might be among the 36% of PCAT takers who have to take the test more than once. Or you might realize that someone you thought might be your recommender isn’t a great fit any more. A structured Pre pharmacy advising plan can help you make sure you are always on top of your prep. We help you execute your plan A and create a plan B so that there are no surprises if something doesn’t go as planned.

Who will my Graduate Coach be?

We connect you with your Graduate Coach based on your experience, interests, and goals. Our team of Coaches comprises of pharmacists, graduates of top pharmacy schools, and former admissions committee members who know what a top pharmacy school looks for.

For our Pre pharmacy advising service to be effective, it is important that your Graduate Coach is able to relate to your academic experience and co-curricular interests. We make sure that we pair you with the right person after you fill our intake form.

Should I choose this Pre pharmacy advising service or should I just wait to use the Complete End-to-End Application Support when I’m ready to apply to pharmacy school?

Attending the right pharmacy school can be life changing. It can set you on course to get into the right residency program and eventually, help you specialize in a field that genuinely interests you. Also, not getting into one of your top choice schools can be extremely costly. Reapplying is stressful and it also delays your entry into the workforce. This can easily translate to lost income of $150,000 or more.

Given that getting into the right pharmacy school is such a high stakes decision, it is advisable to start preparing early. Our End-to-End Application Support service can help you craft an amazing application, but it cannot make you go back in time to fill potential gaps in your profile. We would recommend using this service if you want to be sure that all your i’s are dotted and t’s are crossed before you apply to pharmacy school.
