Welcome! I’m delighted that you’re here.
Are you tired of scouring forums to figure out if you should work with an admissions consultant and if so which of the many is right for you?
Do you have big dreams for your academic and professional future but worry that a low GPA, erratic work experience, gaps in employment, or a mediocre test score could keep you out of your dream school?
Are you overwhelmed by the idea of writing dozens of essays and trying to figure out how to customize the essays for each school?
Are you clueless as to what admissions committees mean when they say your “story” is the most important part of your application?
Are you scared that you’ll let your friends and family down during the holidays because you’ll be hunched over your laptop slaving away on your applications?
Have you put off applying to graduate school for months or even several years because you fear that it will completely take over your life—and you just don’t know where to begin?
If this sounds like you, I’m here to help.
I am Kaneisha Grayson, Harvard MBA & MPA and the founder of The Art of Applying. While I was still in college, I successfully got myself (and two of my best friends!) admitted to graduate school at Harvard. I went from knowing absolutely nothing about how to get into Harvard to receiving an admissions letter in just eight months to Harvard Kennedy School and Harvard Business School. I have a rare talent and a passion for helping people get into their dream schools without having perfect backgrounds and without pretending to be someone they’re not.
While at Harvard, I performed well academically, forged strong relationships with my peers and professors, earned a prestigious leadership fellowship from HKS, was awarded an entrepreneurship grant from HBS, and even graduated with Second Year Honors (top 20% of students) from HBS. My experience applying to and attending school at Harvard was very positive, and I’m passionate about helping other people with diverse dreams and interests gain admission to Harvard and other top graduate programs.
Since then, I’ve helped scores of applicants around the world gain admission to their dream schools through my coaching, workshops, and newsletter. It warms my heart to see the Facebook posts of my clients who are having the time of their lives in top business and policy schools, and going on to work in their dream jobs.
