Shine is a boutique MBA admissions consulting firm serving business school candidates around the world.

For reapplicants, we’ll work with you to identify where things went wrong and identify your best 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 your future goals.

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 reapplicants, 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 hourly packs as follows:
  • 3 hours: $365/hr. =$1095
  • 10 hours: $350/hr. =$3500
  • 15 hours: $340/hr. = $5100
  • Single hours can be added (in advance) to any pack at the same rate 
  • Rush services are available for an additional 35% fee
  • Any unused time is fully refundable 

From there, if you’re feeling inspired, we’ll help you develop your next set of applications. From fine-tuning your resume to strengthening your essay content, we will support you through every aspect of the reapplication process.  You’ll find those services detailed on our New Applicants page. We’ll of course pay special attention to your needs as a reapplicant and leverage the hard work you’ve already done. Nevertheless, by taking it from the top, we’ll be best equipped to give you a fresh 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 offer larger time blocks for reapplicants 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.

“The definition of insanity
is doing the same thing over and over again,
but expecting different results.”

-Albert Einstein
