    program in the US. New advisees are allowed to
    consult these essays as a model.

    accepted into Stanford, Darden, and one
    presentation from the funding institute in
    Brazil, Fundação Estudar. Advisees can borrow
    both presentations to find out the path taken by
    these students to get accepted into an MBA

I introduced to the advisee the software College
Sourcefrom Career Guidance Foundation, and
showed him how to make a search to screen
universities that would fit his profile, and how
to consult the universities catalogs
I also told him how to use GradSearch to perform
a similar search

werent for the internet... The first thing we do
at the office is to guide the advisees to our
technology center, which opens at our homepage
