About Sachin

I've been an admissions consultant for 15+ years, and my clients have gotten in to every top business school globally: Stanford GSB, HBS, Wharton, MIT, Columbia, Booth, Kellogg, Tuck, Haas, INSEAD, LBS, and other programs. I also help applicants to PhD/Master's programs, including for STEM, liberal arts, and specialty programs like Education, Architecture, and Design. Writing and helping others tell their story is my passion. Early on I thought I wanted to become a psychologist, and earned my BA in psychology at Stanford, then a PhD in Clinical Psychology at UCLA. When I realized I wasn't sufficiently passionate about that field, I applied to business positions and got an offer from McKinsey & Company, where I was a consultant with the Chicago Office for nearly three years. My biggest accomplishment there, other than getting the job, was winning the Valentine's Day Poetry Contest with a parody of T.S. Eliot's "The Love Song of J. Alfred Prufrock." That proved prophetic, because when I left consulting I realized writing is what I love most, and launched a career writing for myself and others. I have written novels, short stories, narrative nonfiction, and screenplays, with work published in ESQUIRE, THE RUMPUS, AMAZON DAY ONE, PARENTS, and many others. My screenwriting placed in HBO's Project Greenlight (the contest started by Matt Damon and Ben Affleck) and was nominated for an ABC/Disney Talent Grant. As a writer I'm represented by Folio Literary Management in NYC. My writing clients have included Stanford (GSB and AI Institute), Kellogg, Booth, AT Kearney, Willis Towers Watson, and many other organizations and individuals. I've worked on articles and books published by HARVARD BUSINESS REVIEW, THE WASHINGTON POST, FORBES, FORTUNE, BUSINESS INSIDER, MCGRAW-HILL, HARPER-COLLINS, JOSSEY-BASS, PALGRAVE, FT PRESS, and many others. Finding and telling stories is what I do best. I work on every element of the application process, and can help you put your best foot forward, powered by the stories only you can tell.
