Hello Friends,

The journey from GMAT to applications to B-Schools can be very intimidating for everyone, but if you were to add extenuating circumstances or some factors which don’t make you the ‘ideal fit’, it often feels an impossible task. I am sure anyone, who has ever applied to even a single B-School, agrees.


In my story, the weakest link was the 17 months of work experience I had at the time of application, that too in IT. The many well-wishers, friends and experts I had spoken to had ruled it off as an impossible feat to get into any of the top US B schools, which was my target category. However, I knew I was ready for the course and that this would be the perfect time to pursue it in my career.


With little hope and a lot of ambition, I spoke to Mayank Sir at The Experts’ Global for his advice on the matter. To this day, I am thankful to the team of Experts’ Global for a lot of things, but the most important of those was the encouragement that they offered at a time when I seriously needed it. The last few months of my life have been a very significant journey for me where I have learned the value of dedication, belief, and guidance and for this support, I would like to thank the entire team at Experts’ Global sincerely.


To any future aspirant reading this, I will strongly recommend giving your dream a shot. You never know…!

All the best!

Congrats Ameya! Getting in to a top MBA program with just 1.5 years of work experience is a great achievement. Would you mind expanding a bit more on your application process? Can you tell us more about yourself, professional career so far, when you decided to apply for an MBA, which schools you chose to apply? How you approached essays/interviews? which factors played crucial role in getting admit call from UVA? When people read application debrief they would like to know these things. I am sorry to say that your current post appears as if written only to highlight the role your admission consultant played in your success, which is better written in Admission Consultants Reviews section, not in My MBA Journey forum.

Most of what I had to say has already been said by others, especially Narenn

Can you share more information on your profile? How'd you approach the application process etc

Narenn in all of the OP's gc history this is the only post he has. It doesn't seem right to me somehow.
