Preparing for the GMAT, MBA applications, Career Changes and the rest of life can be (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. Each membership level has an overview document to help you understand where you are in the process even when your goals are fuzzy, and points you to the resource you need at that point.

There are three all-inclusive Membership levels:
Core, Premium, and Private.

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 $.

If your close/best/smart friend recommended me, you want to start with Premium – it maxes out your $$. You’ll get first priority access to tutoring hours at the lowest student rate. And you get 1-1 hours included as part of Prepwise Premium.

Still on the fence? No worries, start with Core. Core is enough to get a reasonable candidate into a top 10 program – you just have to be a bit more disciplined. You can upgrade to Premium any time. Or you can add tutoring hours as you need.

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 hundreds more do it too.

Level 3: PRIVATE Membership

PRIVATE is well . . . private. If you are a good candidate for Private you will get an invitation once you’ve joined as either Core or Premium. Private members are often tasked with handling family investments and business(es) or have aspirations to make big moves in industry.

If you have big moves to make, this is the way forward. Students who need a place to have private conversations particularly concerning life objectives and family business concerns turn to the Private membership. You get pre-scheduled appointments to keep you moving through sometimes sticky decisions. You also get an unbiased, outsider’s perspective on the choices you have and the choices you can create for yourself.

Acceptance is based on your likelihood for success with our work. Every student must demonstrate at least a baseline of competence across our disciplines. The first year of our work is often the most intense.

Finance (Funding Things):

  • Banking
  • Accounting
  • Opaque Asset classes (Real Estate, Art, etc.)

Operations (Running Things):

  • Industry
  • Consumer
  • Services versus Products

Personal Development (Integrate Life and Work):

  • Skills vs Interests
  • Goals vs Objectives
  • Paths forward
  • Graduate school options
  • Tactics

Your Best Life

If it sounds like a mini-MBA . . . well, you’re not wrong. In some cases this is as much as you need. In other cases we’ll determine the best strategic fit for any graduate school plans. If you might be running the show, you need to know how things work. And you need the hard and soft skills to get there.

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 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.”

Course Descriptions

GMAT

30-Day GMAT Prep

Each day a new lesson focusing on 6-10 problems opens up. You’ll start the lesson with a timed quiz pushing you to work on your GMAT speed. Once the quiz is complete, you will see how you did and have an opportunity to see how I would teach it. Master just those 6-10 problems and you’ll be done with the GMAT in 30 days. You can use the program longer than 30 days (all lessons open after 30 days), but you can also be totally done with GMAT prep by the end of the 30 days.

Afraid you’ll get behind? That’s okay too. Lessons become available each day so you can catch up over the weekend or on long flights. The lessons are organized to be done in as few as 30 minutes a day.

Available to Core, Premium, and Private.

Self-Paced GMAT Prep

The 30-day program is great (I’m biased), but you might prefer a more subject based approach. The Self-paced GMAT course arranges lessons in Master Subjects: Number Theory, Boundaries and Constraints, Geometry, Mechanics, Critical Thinking, Grammar Basics, and Advanced Reading. Finish your GMAT prep in as little or as long as you need. You’ll use the same problem decks my GMAT tutoring students use so you can focus on what matters. Quality beats quantity. Additional coursework and master lessons to support you.

Available to Premium and Private members only. Now available to Core members too!

Tutoring Options

From a few individual hours to full prep plans, tutoring students must be enrolled in one of my courses or go through the Pre/Post GMAT Evaluation to be added to the tutoring roster. If you are in one of the online courses you will have direct access to appointment bookings. If you are just getting introduced, please sign up for the evaluation or join as a core or premium member.

Tutoring is available to all members, but Premium and Private members get the best rates.

MBA Applications

Self-Paced MBA 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, if you do the right pre-work, the essays, letters, short prompts, and interviews come together magically.

This is automatically included in your Core, Premium, and Private memberships.

Take the Live MBA App Bootcamp Course!

Life is busy enough. Why recreate the wheel? I’ve worked with hundreds of MBA applicants 1-1 who go on to top 5 programs, Rounds 1, 2, and 3! We can’t change your GPA. We can’t change the career 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, 2 drafts of (1) school’s essays, and plenty of time to ask me for personal feedback.

Be more than 80% done in one weekend and confident you’ve done the RIGHT stuff.

BONUS for Premium Members: Before you hit submit, I’ll even read through one application for you giving you my take on your profile, your competitiveness, and the fixes you can make now to be a better candidate today.

The Session from August 2017 is automatically included in your Core, Premium, and Private memberships.

Not sure? Try the Pre/Post GMAT Evaluation.

Book the initial evaluation or send an email:hi@prepwise.com. 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?
Is the GMAT right for you? or GRE?
Do I need to retake?
I need the GMAT but am not sure what I need to do – really – to prepare? And with this awful work schedule!

I’ve got your back. Come in for one hour. If appropriate, we’ll do all the legwork on your GMAT power. Do you have to have a 740? Really? Some students need it. It’s always nice to be 740+ but do you have to have it? If so, how do you get there with your skills and weaknesses? And how long will it take. But even if you are past the MBA, the Evaluation is first step to helping you get your life and career in synch.
