Excerpt from Clear Admit-- "It turned out that NYU Stern was the perfect place to start such a service. We interviewed more than 20 of our friends on their experience with offline and online networking events and surveyed over 50 additional people.

He helped us understand what we should be testing and where our priorities should lie."
