Veritas Prep Offers Proven, Personalized Advice for Gaining Entry Into Leading MBA Programs to Professionals Affected By the Economic Slowdown

For the many professionals affected by the current economic downturn, enrolling in a leading MBA program is emerging as an increasingly attractive option. Veritas Prep, a leading GMAT prep and MBA admissions consulting provider, today announced plans to hold Veritas Prep MBA Admissions Blueprint -- a two-day, boot-camp style MBA admissions tutorial to help students craft winning applications for the second and third-round application deadlines.

To be held December 6-7, 2008 at New York University's Kimmel Center, Veritas Prep MBA Admissions Blueprint will feature a crash-course introduction to the business school admissions process as well as individual access to some of the leading minds in business school admissions consulting. Designed primarily for bankers and other last-minute applicants affected by the economic slowdown, Veritas Prep MBA Admissions Blueprint will give applicants access to proven strategies for acing the business school application and securing coveted spots in leading programs.

"In light of one of the most competitive MBA admissions landscapes in recent history, former bankers and others affected by the economic downturn may find it especially difficult to set themselves apart from a crowded field of similar-looking applicants when they apply to business school," explains Scott Shrum, director of MBA admissions research at Veritas Prep and co-author of "Your MBA Game Plan: Proven Strategies for Getting Into the Top Business Schools."

In addition to a series of general information sessions, registered attendees at Veritas Prep MBA Admissions Blueprint will receive a personalized application advice session with a highly experienced business school admissions consultant who comes from a top business school. Depending on the unique needs of each student, this one-on-one session can help to objectively evaluate their candidacy for particular programs and select the programs that best match their goals, perfect their overall application strategy, review their application essays, or prepare for the business school interview.

The cost of attendance is $250 and space is limited. Online registration is available now at or by phone at 1-800-925-7737.
