Smart strategies + non-stop support* =
your MBA admissions success.

Since 2005, Candy Lee LaBalle has helped +600 (& counting) applicants get accepted.


Applying for an MBA is hard work and the stakes are very high.

Stanford usually admits just 6% of its applicants into its MBA. Harvard Business School lets in about 12%. MIT Sloan & Berkeley Haas admit around 14% and Columbia under 18%. For the rest of the top US schools, admissions rates are under 20% and European schools like INSEAD, LBS and IESE average less than 30% of applicants admitted.

LaBalle Admissions’s expertise-driven suite of services WILL increase those odds in your favour. But it is not just about expertise, Candy’s promise to you (really, really!), is to be there with you throughout the long, gritty process. Whether you can afford 1 hour or 100, you’ll have her *full support (and constant contact via whatsapp) to keep you motivated, focused and occasionally amused.

“If I let you into my family of clients, you are in, always. Never forget that. This is not a transaction for me. A recent client (admit to Wharton & Stern) called the experience of working with me a “self-awakening” and I do believe that applying to an MBA is a truly personal experience of self-awareness and awakening. It deserves to be treated with respect and awe.” – Candy


No matter where you are in the process,
LaBalle Admissions has an MBA application package to help you.
