John's MBA Qualifications
90+ people coached for MBA
Open to working with clients outside the U.S.
I was admitted to HBS and Stanford GSB through the deferred/2+2 program. After that, I founded Deferred MBA Consulting and have helped hundreds of clients with their applications. Ultimately, learnings from Deferred MBA laid the foundation for Leland. Since most of my time is spent building Leland, I'm best working with clients who don't need intensive coaching in a short amount of time. I love working with clients who have strong backgrounds but just need a few hours of time on application strategy, essays, recommender selection/prep, and interviews.
John can help with:
In 2017, I was admitted to Stanford GSB and Harvard Business School through the 2+2/deferred MBA programs. Since then, I've helped hundreds of deferred and traditional MBA applicants with their applications as well through Deferred MBA Consulting and Leland. My applicants have been accepted to HBS, Stanford GSB, Wharton, Kellogg, MIT, Booth, and other great programs. I love working with applicants who take ownership over their applications and use me as a sounding board and thought-partner. I'm great at helping you select and support your recommenders, brainstorming your essay narrative, and helping you crush your interviews. Looking forward to getting to know you!
Why do I coach?
I coach because I love helping people reach their goals. As the oldest of 5 siblings and now father of 2, I've always felt excited about mentoring the next generation. If you are looking for a champion, someone willing to be in your corner and help you succeed, I'm your guy.
