The team at Accepted is happy to welcome Jamie Wright as a new consultant.
Jamie had been working at London Business School (LBS) since 2009 and quickly became the Client Services Manager for their Masters in Management (MiM) program. She was the first person that anyone interested in applying to the MiM program contacted. Meeting these candidates so early in the process allowed her to form relationships with many candidates who eventually became students in the program.
Successfully guiding young people through their application process was very rewarding for Jamie. She continued to be an advisor throughout her career at LBS, a role that allowed her to meet with applicants to the Early Careers, MBA, Masters in Finance, and Executive MBA programs. She also served as Senior Recruitment and Admissions Manager, and finally as Early Careers’ first Admissions Director. In all her positions at LBS she was able to learn about students from around the world – what brought them to LBS and where they say themselves in the future. Jamie also had the opportunity to meet prospective students in her travels to the U.S., Canada, China, and Europe. And she made it her business to learn about London Business Schools’ competitors.
Jamie sees more business schools using a holistic approach to admissions. They want to be sure that in addition to a proven academic track record, evidenced most frequently by your GPA and GMAT/GRE scores, you will fit in with the other students at the school, and that you are passionate about attending their program. They want to be sure that they can help you realize your professional ambitions.
Jamie sees her current role at Accepted as one where she makes the application process as stress-free and effective as possible. She strives to make sure that you understand what the admissions committee is looking for – and that you provide it. She feels that applying to business school should be an exciting experience and completing all the parts of your application should underscore the correctness of your decision to pursue this path. Jamie wants to help you convey your personal story in a way that will make your dream school want you as part of their incoming class.
Welcome to the team, Jamie!
