Welcome, Berkshire Partners!

We have been working with Berkshire Partners (BP) and their Associates for years and look forward to another successful application season ahead. As a boutique admissions firm focused on the most competitive MBA programs, we are delighted to offer BP Associates a set of customized services with additional support from Brooke and Liza—the Gatehouse Admissions Leadership Team.

Full Support Services

Full Support Services

Our Full Support Services are designed to assist you with whatever you need at every stage of the application process. As a BP Associate, you will also receive an extra level of support from the Gatehouse Admissions Leadership Team at no additional cost.

Our Full Support Services include the following:

  • Exploration of your background, accomplishments, values, and goals through our Experience Inventory
  • Essay strategy and execution with unlimited reviews
  • Resume overhaul and online application strategy
  • Recommender/advocate strategy alignment and execution support
  • Interview training and practice with your Consultant (*mock interview with a different Gatehouse team member is an add-on)
  • Support at any additional stage (e.g., wait list, further consideration, decision strategy)
  • Strategic input from the Gatehouse Admissions Leadership Team. Specifically, a member of the Leadership Team will
    • review your Experience Inventory and discuss your application strategy with your Consultant,
    • review one draft of each of your core essays, and
    • review one draft of your resume.

Our Full Support Services are best suited for someone who

  • wants the freedom of unlimited time with a Consultant, without worrying about how many minutes are left or how long different tasks take.
  • wants to know that someone else is keeping tabs on the application timeline and full set of deliverables and offering guidance accordingly

Note that pricing for Harvard Business School (HBS) and the Stanford Graduate School of Business (GSB) support is higher because of the complexity of those applications and the additional hours our Consultants spend on them.
