Shine is a full-service MBA admissions consulting firm serving business school candidates around the world.

For re-applicants, we’ll work with you to figure out what didn’t work well last time and identify your best next course of action. From application missteps, candidacy shortfalls, or poor school fit, we’ll give you honest feedback and ensure that you’re putting your best foot forward to achieve success.

Our broad range of services enables us to meet any applicant’s needs and timing, with the flexibility to focus on the areas most important to you. Just let us know how we can help.

For re-applicants, we provide the following services on an hourly basis:
  • Ding Analysis of past applications
  • Actionable feedback to strengthen candidacy and future applications
With an hourly structure, we will have the maximum flexibility to customize our work to your individual needs. You simply advance-purchase our time in blocks as follows:
  • 3 hours: $350/hr. = $1050
  • 10- and 15-hour blocks are also available at a discounted rate
  • Single hours can be added (in advance) to any block at the same rate
From there, if you’re feeling inspired, we’d love to help you develop your next set of applications! You can find those services detailed on our New Applicants page. We’ll of course pay special attention to your needs/requirements as a re-applicant and leverage all of the hard work you’ve already done. Otherwise, we’d like to think of you as a New Applicant and give you a fresh new start.

Estimating the time you’ll need:

In our experience, 3 hours is a sufficient block of time for us to analyze and discuss our feedback on 1-3 applications.  We also offer larger time blocks for re-applicants who intend to engage us for additional services.


We understand that this is a big investment. Is it worth it?  It truly is. Here’s why.

Do or do not, there is no try.”
