When I started out for my application, I had to go through that exact same question. I even made a few phone calls to many offices and talked to them but none was quite interesting to me. I continued my search and found a one. I was still skeptic, but hey! I got one of the best.

Have you heard of MBA Crystal Ball? They provide the services through phone call and over the e-mails. Their techniques and the ways they handled my application - which included brainstorming sessions, interviews, profile evaluation - were captivating and very efficient. Search it online, you will get the details. One thing you'll have to keep in mind is that they are expensive, at least they were to me. But if money is not your concern, you should definitely contact them.

Right now, I am being coached by a lady who sits in Assam and I have been lucky enough to have found her.

So, yes. I have given two choices to you - MBA Crystal Ball and the lady. If you want further details on this lady, please pm me. I would be more than happy to introduce you to her.

Hi Nishant7,

Is there a reason why you are 'limiting' your options to a geographic location?

You will likely find plenty of qualified Admissions Experts if you post in the Admissions Consulting Forum here:

I think I am really late in responding to you Nishant. I am sharing my reviews for Pythagurus. When you enquire with Pythagurus, ask for Jatin Bhandari.

https://gmatclub.com/forum/columbia-and ... 43174.html

I had applied twice in the past 3 years ( 2014 with a GMAT 680 and 2016 with a 730. Got admitted to Columbia and INSEAD this year and have decided to join INSEAD January intake. Was hesitant as CBS was a better brand but have chosen INSEAD because of scholarships and duration of the program( Hope I am right in the long run).

Worked with two different consultants across two years. First one ( Name hidden) was okay but there were many factors that led to multiple rejects including low GMAT Score and work experience, school selection and stories. Second one- Jatin Bhandari ( Pythagurus) –recommended by some of my colleagues from Wharton and MIT.

Two months into the process, I was advised by Jatin to take GMAT. I had been resisting this a lot but finally decided to go for it and ended up not applying to any program that year. Decided to travel to the US and Europe to make class visits and realized that it was GMAT Score indeed that was the major roadblock. Visited many campuses and realized- Many admitted students across most of my target programs did not have out of the world profiles but my 680 was staring at me continuously. I had even attended seminars by many ex-applicants of Pythagurus at their Gurgaon center and many admitted applicants from Top 10-15 schools did not have profiles that were way superior than mine (Some were exceptional but not all). Decided to drop the entire year and reapply in 2016.

Final Score: 730
Final Results: Columbia Business School ( 2017 Intake) and INSEAD w/scholarship) - ( Jan intake).


Stanford – Dinged without an interview

Tuck- Reject but not a surprise( Tuck Reject was not a shock. I connected really well with the admissions committee during class visits and I reconnected with them in 2016. However, my interviewer did not like me and that was very evident. He was not convinced with my goals story. He spent 20 minutes in trying to convince me that management consultants really do not do anything in life and investment bankers play with real money and add real value to the industry. He was an ex-banker and a PE guy and probably did not want to accept a perspective different than his. I thought I will write to Tuck but did not and decided to let it go.

Wharton- Dinged after interview.


I owe these admits to a thorough admissions process absolutely and thanks to Jatin for being a great partner. My advice to everyone- Your clarity about how an MBA program can help you achieve your aspirations really is very important. Your research will matter in both essays and interviews. I was advised by Jatin to literally stalk the MBA programs I am aspiring for. I went for a class visit and did informational interviews with the adcoms. I think I literally I spoke with almost everyone who was available to speak across all my schools. I will advise everyone to communicate with all your target programs and understand how they can help you with your goals. As we moved ahead in the process, Jatin changed my understanding of my goals and essays completely. I grew up to realize how I should focus on sub-functions in finance and why value investing at Columbia was very important for me. For other schools, I used a management consulting story.


INSEAD admit came after I had my Visa stamped for US. I was not expecting it as I was not very satisfied with my interview apparently. My interviewer was rude and cold I thought but I think I was wrong in my judgment or probably I misread him after my Tuck interview experience.

I will finally be joining INSEAD Jan intake primarily because of scholarships and short duration of the program.

Finally- thanks to Jatin and Pythagurus for all the help. We did it finally.
Good luck to everyone who is applying.

I will be sharing my experiences in a seminar as well in the Gurgaon center of pythagurus soon. Happy to connect with you if you are around.

After failing to get admission by myself, this year, after a LOT of research and speaking to many admission consultants, I have finally started working with Jatin (Pythagurus) with a 5 school comprehensive package. Its just been a month so cannot tell much, but its been good so far. Jatin is very energetic and upbeat and that helps.

Will post a detailed review once my process is complete. I have got a lot from this forum and would like to contribute by sharing my experiences.

All The Best!

An MBA offers you a wealth of advantages, especially when it’s from a well-regarded top business school. Getting a high salary after graduation, landing a management position, or even becoming your own boss are just a few other advantages. Everyone dreams to get into a top MBA program such as Harvard, Stanford, Chicago Booth, Kellogg, MIT, or Columbia just to name a few, the problem is that getting in this top programs is really hard. Acceptance in top schools is significantly low and competence is fierce!

The application process is hard, long and daunting. The whole process can take over a year! MBA applicants have to study for the GMAT, write complicated essays, get recommendation letters, master their resumes and prepare for really tough interviews!

There is a consensus that while studying for the GMAT is time consuming, the hardest part is understanding school fit and preparing the essays. Many describe the process as “really stressful” and “time consuming”. Applicants lose focus in their applications and get stressed as they don’t know how to create a good application.

This is why we see a continued grow in applicants reaching out to MBA admission consultants. But how much does an MBA Admission consultant charge? The cost of hiring an MBA consultant ranges from $3,000 to $12,000 USD. Some companies such as Stacy Blackman can charge over $4,000 for support to only one school. This is really expensive!

As we can see, applicants lacking a network of contacts to leverage and the resources to pay an expensive MBA consultant are in a huge disadvantage when applying to their dream programs. Luckily there are new opportunities emerging in the market. A few months ago a group of entrepreneurs at University of Chicago, in a mission to democratize access to top education launched mymbacircle a platform where MBA applicants can connect with mentors who are second year students and alumni of the best schools at an affordable price.

There are a lot of options in the market today, but in my opinion second year students and alumni of your target schools can provide the best guidance often times.

Strange to see no mention of Experts' Global here. I would recommend taking a look at their offering and having a counseling session with them. Rest, of course, please proceed with a company that you feel confident about working with.

You can find my detailed review here- https://gmatclub.com/forum/best-admissi ... l#p2196847

All the best!

Dream School Admit (https://dreamschooladmit.com/)
It was my third GMAT attempt and I got the score of 650. I wasn’t very confident of applying, but wanted to go ahead and apply as I knew I won’t be able to attempt GMAT once again. I knew I needed help and advice and I started searching for consultants. I came across many consultant companies on GMAT club. I read testimonials and started writing mails to them. I spoke to the representatives/owners of around 7 companies. Some of them were charging exorbitant fees and some were not willing to listen properly to my needs.
I wasn’t convinced and my further search landed me on Quora. I got to read some interesting testimonials on Quora about Arvind of DreamSchoolAdmit (https://dreamschooladmit.com/) and I thought of giving it a try. I contacted Arvind and the best thing about Arvind is that he first listened to my MBA needs. Before jumping into the prices and package, Arvind helped me craft the story. After we finalized the story, I decided to engage with him for the application and interview process.
Ranging from reviewing and editing my essays, resume, and even the guidance on video essays, every advice of his helped me not only in putting out the best possible version but also a great learning for me as I was getting to know more about myself in the process. Arvind reviewed my Resume 8 times to bring out the best Resume for Adcoms. Arvind had worked closely with Adcoms and so, he knew exactly what kind of questions can be asked. Once invited for interview, you can’t afford to do a blunder in the interviews. Arvind made sure that I deliver best and after 4 mock interviews, I was able to answer any question confidently.
Having Arvind at my side throughout the application process was a confidence booster for me, as he didn’t let me think down even once. He believed in my talent more than I did myself. This is my first testimonial for anyone and I strongly recommend Arvind Arun of DreamSchoolAdmit (https://dreamschooladmit.com/) for the best possible help you can get in the nominal prices. I got an offer from Schulich and awaiting from 1 more college.

I am second-year MBA student at Chicago Booth and wrote about the top MBA admission consultants in this blog post.

The crux is that many top consultants are expensive and inaccessible to most people, since charges vary from $5,000-$10,000. Hence, there are options emerging such as our platform that helps MBA applicants get help from curated mentors who are currently in their target profession or MBA program at an affordable price. Candidates can instantly book mock interviews, essay reviews, resume editing, and school/company specific insights from highly curated students and alumni through 1-on-1 calls.

Wouldn't it be great if we can democratize admissions support to the world’s most coveted business schools and make the process more transparent than it is today through honest & bite-sized mentoring?

Got into Ross, NUS, and ISB with GyanOne’s help. I had done multiple applications in the last month before the deadline, and they helped me build strong apps despite the low time available, and get the admits.

HI All,

Greetings from August Academy. Just thought that I would add our name to the list here.

I am the founder of August Academy - and am an alum of IIT Madras and Stanford University (PhD).

We are a Chennai based consulting firm and have been in business since 2013. Since then, we've helped several students get into top-ranked global MBA programs, and secure excellent scholarships as well. Our approach is personalised, and 1-on-1. We have excellent reviews on GMAT club. (https://gmatclub.com/reviews/august-aca ... 55?fl=menu). More reviews can be found on our website (www.mbaadmissions.augustacademy.in), and at other locations on the web as well.

We have been GMAT club partners for a few years now. Please see through a video-session that I did along with Scott Edinburgh of Personal MBA Coach here: https://youtu.be/2_CPnj-m_5c. This session was about how you should prepare to ace the MBA admissions interview.

We are also one of the few Indian organisations that are members of AIGAC - the Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants. AIGAC membership is very selective and is offered only to consulting firms that follow extremely ethical consulting practices. As an AIGAC member, I've attended business school conferences in the US - where I've visited several top-ranked business schools including Ross, Kellogg, Booth, Rotman, McCombs, Vanderbilt, Georgetown, Darden, Duke and Kenan-Flagler. I've also served on AIGAC's conference organising committee.

Please reach out to us for your admissions related queries. We are happy to schedule a free call to evaluate how we can work together. (Please schedule through the link in my signature).

Look forward to speaking with you.

Best Regards,
Karthik
