Preparing for Graduate School Applications be it Business School, Law School or an Academic Masters is non-linear. It can be challenging to know what you need and when you’ll need it. After a few years of watching how my students used the online resources I decided to just simplify the process for you. No more buying each class and then wondering if you are on track. You have an overview document to help you understand where you are in the process even when your goals are fuzzy.
There are TWO all-inclusive Membership levels:
One Year “Urgent” plan,
and the Three Year plan.
If you landed on Prepwise and don’t already know me, start with the free stuff! There’s a lot of it, and you can get to know if you’ll like my style before you commit any $. Details for that here: Prepwise free resources.
If you are in the top 20% of your peers, and you KNOW you’ll be starting graduate school within TWO YEARS, choose the ONE YEAR PLAN. That’s all you need, and there’s no reason to pay for more.
If you are in the top 20% of your peers, and you aren’t sure when or if you’ll be starting graduate school, choose the THREE YEAR PLAN. This plan gives you THREE YEARS to make big moves while taking care of your prep along the way. This fits very well with recent grads and those still on the fence about graduate school plans.
If you are NOT SURE about 1-yr or 3-yr or you are not in the top 20% of your peers, sign up for a private evaluation. This site is best for strong students with strong self discipline. Technically anyone can sign up for the online courses, but I’d hate for the content to move too quickly for you. Come see me if you are not sure.
My goal is to get you everything you need to get all the way through the process of making your next big steps. Think of me like a big sister who has been there, done that, and helped thousands more do it too.
All Memberships include an online dashboard you can access on any smart device, optimized to make your learning happen when and where you need. Take notes right on the lesson pages. You can access these later on your “My Account” dashboard or by visiting that same lesson page. Notes can be printed out for further study as well.
“Makes me wonder if she has a crystal ball….”
“ … going through random dark rooms in my brain and flipping the light switches on”
“… by far, the best instructor I’ve worked with”
“… amazing in and beyond the classroom!”
“Appreciated the collaborative, competitive environment.”
“Pushed me to focus. Taught me what’s on the test (really) and turned raw talent into something.”
“Within 5 minutes Kate told me where I could reasonably land (760+) so when my first take was only 740 I was confident to go for a 2nd take. 760. Done.”
“I was really impressed by how well Kate could read me. There’s no hiding. She’s tough, but absolutely your advocate too.”
“Junk prep (millions of problems, loads of practice tests) is like junk food, enticing but not very good for you. Kate will give you the insight you need without the extra fluff.”

Grad School Applications
Self-Paced Application Prep
Get access to the materials and exercises my students use to prepare to write their applications. With 97.8% acceptance rate at their #1 school, my students know, when you do the right pre-work, the essays, letters, short prompts, and interviews come together magically. This is automatically included in all memberships.
Watch a pre-recorded App Bootcamp Course!
Life is busy enough. Why recreate the wheel? I’ve worked with hundreds of applicants 1-1 who go on to top 5 programs. We can’t change your GPA. We can’t change the career and life choices you’ve made so far. But we can determine the best way forward with your applications. Over 2-days you will get through all of the pre-work and (2) drafts of (1) school’s essays. Be more than 80% complete in one weekend and be confident that you’ve done the RIGHT stuff.
From a few individual hours to full prep plans, tutoring students must be enrolled in one of my courses or go through the Initial Evaluation to be added to the tutoring roster (this is notoriously more difficult June-September!). If you are in one of the online courses you will have direct access to appointment bookings within your student account. If you are just getting introduced, please sign up for the initial evaluation or join as a member.

Not sure? Try the Initial Evaluation. Or check out the Retaker Page.
Book the initial evaluation. We can cover just about anything career (and life) related in your first 1-1 appointment. Sometimes all you need is a different perspective.
Example questions we often address:
I need an MBA, right? Law School will help me build my career, right? I’m not sure what I want to do but a graduate degree is always a good idea, right?
Should I take the GMAT? or the GRE? Do I need to retake? I need the GRE/GMAT/LSAT but am not sure what I really need to do to prepare, and I still have to work full time!
I’ve got your back. Come in for one hour. If appropriate, we’ll do all the legwork on your GMAT, GRE or LSAT power. Do you have to have a 740 or 174? Really? Some students need it. It’s always nice to be at the top of the test scores, but that may not be necessary for your profile. If you do need, we will discuss how you specifically – with your skills and weaknesses – can get there. Even if you are past graduate school now, the Evaluation is first step to helping you get your life and career in synch.
