Hi folks,

I availed Byju’s MBA admission consultancy service recently. My experience with Byju’s has been satisfactory. The entire process with them was quite smooth, the CV editing, essay brain-storming, the essay writing, etc. What I personally loved about Byju’s is that they guide and not spoon-feed. The team provides unlimited support to cater your needs. For me, the entire process became a learning phase. Now, I know how to shortlist colleges (highly underrated point but actually the most important one), how to tackle essays, what to write, how to write, what to highlight, what to modify, how to build an MBA worthy CV and, much more. I worked on 3 B-schools with Byju’s but now I have the confidence of applying to as many as I wish without seeking anyone’s help. The efforts put during the application process, helped me in interviews as well.

Individual experiences can differ. However, in order to get the most out of Byju’s services (for that matter any consultancy service), keep following points in mind:

1. Approach them well in advance and not a week before the application deadline. CV editing, brain storming, essay writing/reviewing/editing takes time, especially for the first college.
2. Understand the consultants are humans and not Aladdin’s Genie. If you take 2 days to write/edit essay(s), they will also require a day or two to properly review it as you are not their only client and they will be simultaneously working with a number of other candidates as well. Have patience and refer to point 1 in order to avoid last minute chaos.
3. Be as open and candid as possible. Ask questions (even if you think they are stupid or silly), clear your doubts and confusions, and don’t hesitate in sharing your weaknesses or low points (in career or personal life). Conversation is the key! Consultants are just like doctors, don’t hide anything from them. They can help you only when they know YOU!
4. It’s a two-way thing. Consultants work in sync with candidate’s activeness and alertness. If you will leave everything on them and become lazy then everything will fall apart. In case you sense a laid back attitude from your consultant, confront it in a mail, on-call or f2f (escalate the issue if required). No service company wants to jeopardize their image. They will pump back with best of the best services.

Hope you find this review and advice helpful :-)
Cheers!

I worked with Krithika at Byjus and I could not have been happier! I started pretty late for the round 2 and had no idea where to start.
Working with Krithika has been an incredible personal experience that is very hard to find. She was very approachable and helps you to bring out your stories in a very effective way. The good thing about Byju is that you feel like you are working with an individual and not a company.

After multiple iterations and corrections, I got my perfect essays and multiple interview invites :-)

I worked with Krithika and team at Byjus and their services were great! The fact that you are working with an company and not an individual cannot be emphasized enough.

With Byjus, you get a great balance of no BS, direct and brutal feedback while at the same time you have encouraging support throughout the entire process. Krithika brainstormed everything with me from start to finish. Byjus is a hidden gem in the admissions consulting space and I have sent many friends to them over the years who also had great success!

Hey peeps! I availed BYJU's admissions consulting services for the fall 2018 applications and worked with Krithika Srinivasan - the director of admission consulting services at BYJU's. My experience with them has been extremely pleasent and professional. I started out pretty late, barely scrapping through R2, and was on edge the entire time - but they handeled the entire process really well - from shortinglisting b-schools (twice, since I kept changing my mind) to working on the CV to brainstorming for the essays, going through 6-7 revisions on the essays and finally getting the entire application process completed in time. I received interview invites for all of the schools I applied to. I believe all the advice I received from Krithika was well thought out and you can really tell the depth of experience that she brings with her. She is always critical, blunt and upfront with her opinions and not someone to just 'get things done' in a hurry so it can be shipped out quickly. Overall, I felt that my entire experience with the admissions consulting team at BYJUs was very professional and I loved the fact that they were always super punctual and never missed out on an appointment or edit date of a document. This helped me plan my stuff out too so there was barely any wastage of time. I would highly recommend trying them out!

I availed Byju's Consultancy during July 2017. Their experience is pretty useful and they have a clear idea on what is required to be a fit in a university.
It is a little pricey, but compared to what you will be paying for the college fee, it's not much. Use their resources well. Please note that their services are only till application phase and not till admit. That one is on you.
However, their job is to help you with CV and essay making which is university specific in which they have done a really good job. They will also tell you whether the universities you choose or aspire is achievable or not. Hope this helps.
I am still awaiting admit at one university, once it's confirmed, I'll post a more detailed review.
