If you are looking for an admission consultant to help you with your MBA application, I would highly recommend Mitrabina Sen. Mitrabina guided me in my applications to INSEAD and HAAS. I got an admit in both the schools with 20% scholarship for INSEAD & 80% for HAAS.

I reached out to her on my friend’s recommendation and it was an absolute pleasure to work with her. She is an alumnus of the INSEAD MBA program, has an in-depth understanding of the admission process, and knows exactly what business schools are looking for. Over the years, she has helped many students get into the top business schools in the world. She had helped my friend get into LBS and ISB the previous year.

Mitrabina is very professional, focussed and empathetic. She devoted quality time to coach me and convinced on the right reasons to do MBA, refine my goals, bring out the right reflections and present the best version of myself in my essays. Her help in structuring my thought process and candid feedback in fact helped me to understand my strengths & weaknesses like never before. Without her help, this would not have been possible. She patiently reviewed my multiple edits of essays, application & resume.

Apart from the essays, she also provided valuable points for the letter of recommendation and conducted mock interviews to prepare me for the video and in-person interviews. She guided me with STAR format for the interviews and was there to support me at every juncture of my MBA application process and has been extremely helpful.

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.

This is my review about my experience with Jatin Bhandari (PythaGurus). From my experience, the absolutely best consultant one can work with!


Admits: MIT Sloan Fellows Program starting 2020. R2.

Profile:
M / India / 40 years. Agri Commodity Trading and Supply Chain Management experience including 7 years in West Africa and 7 in the Indian subcontinent.
Have an MBA from one of the top B-schools in India. But since 2015 got the feeling that it was insufficient beyond a point. I needed a little something to catapult myself into the “next level of things”.

GMAT:
Gave my GMAT in Jan 2018 (700 / V41 / Q44 / AW5.5 / IR 8). Self prep over 35 days. Used the standard core books (in no particular order – OG for GMAT Review, Manhattan GMAT Guide, Kaplan GMAT Prep Plus, Princeton Review) with a load of help from gmatclub.com. Burned the proverbial midnight oil studying 6-8 hours every night after a full day at work. It was intense and tiring, and I knew I could not sustain this for long, hence the 35 day deadline.

Finally decided to start the applications in August 2019. Only hitch was that I hadn’t the foggiest clue about how to go about it. The internet has loads of advice on what each part of the application looks for and how one should approach it, but then how does one know which bit of advice is right and which isn’t. Plus it’s not a one size fits all – an approach or content that works for me may not work for another aspirant due to our varied backgrounds, experiences, aspirations, personality types, KSA etc..

After a month of getting thoroughly confused, decided to follow what I do at work – when in doubt, bring in the professionals! It’s okay to ask for help; this isn’t something one wants to “try”; one wants to give it their best shot and get it over and done with in one go.

Spoke to a host of consultants. While they were all very professional, very convincing and very prompt, I still wasn’t getting the comfort I was looking for. So I decided to look up some user feedback on the net. Was going through a host of feedback on gmatclub, when one post caught my eye. There was this candidate who wrote a terrible feedback about a consultant he worked with, and the consultant answered back on the thread. What caught my eye was how the consultant responded – he didn’t rant. Instead he answered each point made by the candidate with facts, dates, timelines and specifics. Nowhere in his revert was the consultant rude, but he made a strong, logical case without mincing words. That’s how Pytha1Gurus got added to my list.

I spoke to Jatin Bhandari for the 1st time in the end of September. And I found that missing element that propelled me across the starting line. Jatin was articulate, upfront and structured in his thought processes, and asked bloody good questions. He didn’t dive into the sales pitch right away – he spent a couple of hours just understanding my profile, my motivations for applying, my desired outcomes, and in clarifying the rules of engagement. He addressed every query upfront, and was very clear on what he expected from me and what I was to expect from him, and how each of us needed to operate during the engagement to ensure we derive the best from each other. No sugar-coating, no bull-****. And he was amazingly positive about the adventure I was about to embark on.

2 calls later, I paid; and the game was afoot!

Long story short, Jatin delivered on every bit he promised and in the manner he promised. He pushed me when I slacked off, he motivated me when I was on the verge of giving up, he coaxed me when I was delivering sub-par inputs.

Proof of success – The MIT SFP admit.

In the rest of this piece, I’m going to club feedback about Pythagurus with what value an admissions consultant brings to the process. All of what I think a good admissions consultant should do or not do, I’ve learnt from my engagement with Jatin Bhandari and Pythagurus.

1. Why engage with an admissions consultant?
Even Roger Federer, The GOAT in the history of sports, has a coach. A coach is a neutral observer with skin in the game wrt the player’s victory.
1. He observes while the player performs, identifies the shortcomings in the players style, skill, knowledge, attitude and personality. He then benchmarks the player’s abilities to the pool of players he’ll be up against, and imparts specific advice to the player for him to beat each opponent. He also advises how to get out of tough spots.
2. A coach lays down a match strategy depending on the opposition to ensure the player does nto burn out, overtire or get hurt during the match. But he also sorts out the player in case he starts slacking during the match.
3. The coach is also the player’s biggest fan and cheerleader. He shouts encouragements from the sidelines when the player is down, tells him what he’s doing wrong during a match and fights tooth and nail on the player’s behalf.
4. A coach also ensures that the player is working out as required, during his break between tournaments, is getting the right amount of nutrition and sleep, and is maintaining a disciplined regime.
All this is precisely what an admissions consultant (AC) does for an MBA aspirant. An AC is a subject matter expert who makes the journey easier and more efficient, and serves as point of reference for a candidate.

2. Is an AC a must?
Theoretically - No. There is enough material on the internet regarding each element of each school’s application. The schools themselves are more than happy to connect and advise.
Practically – Yes.
- Does one really have time to go through all the material available online?
- How does one know which bit of advice is correct / relevant basis the candidate’s background, experiences and desired outcomes? One size doesn’t fit all.
- It’s always good to have someone to talk to and tell you where you’re going wrong or right?
- Ensuring one doesn’t miss out on any critical elements of any application.
- Ensuring the candidate maintains the discipline and rigour required to meet the deadlines without getting stressed; and submits quality and relevant material.
But hey, It’s not a one size fits all kinda situation. Totally depends on the candidate and his circumstances.

3. What does a good admissions consultant do?
1. Will be honest, upfront and detailed about the services they’ll provide, and their costs, throughout the application process. They will also specify the things not available as part of the package. The most important bit is clarifying if who exactly will you be working with (the main guy, a flunky, etc.); and ensuring that you work with only one person for one application. They also should not ask you to engage with multiple people for multiple things during an application, barring scheduling meetings or calls. Jatin made all this and more clear during our first interaction. I knew how much I’ll pay for what and for how long.
2. Expectation setting: An AC understands the motivation and background of the applicant in detail to help them zero in on a pool of schools that he has a best shot at. The AC then identifies a set of schools above the ideal set and a safety net of schools below the ideal set. Idea is to give a candidate a good shot at achieving his aspirations, while building in stretch and ambition.
3. Game Plan: A good AC should plan how to go about applying to various schools. Which schools to apply to first basis deadlines, material than can be used in subsequent applications, and difficult material first. Jatin was clear on how we should approach my applications, while being flexible enough to incorporate my constraints (mainly timelines and schedules at work).
4. Discipline: Ensuring a candidate follows the schedules and meets the deadlines well before the final date. Avoids last minute panic. Jatin would send reminders if I missed a deadline, and would admonish me for being casual. But if I informed him beforehand, he would also be flexible enough to give me an extension if I had a solid reason.
5. Quality of material: A good AC has experience of the quality that a schools requires in terms of content as well as language. A good AC ensures that the candidate submits the right content for each school.
6. Pushing the candidate’s boundaries: in terms of thinking how capable the candidate thinks they are. Jatin made me see so many things about myself and my achievements in a whole different light.
7. Asking bloody good questions: to get the best and most relevant material out of the candidate’s experience and background. The best AC (aka Jatin Bhandari at PythaGurus) will actually help you discover that there is so much more to your story than you believe.
8. Prioritizing material: Every essay / resume / content in an application deck has a word limit. Which means we cannot put everything we believe is our significant achievement, into an application. A good AC will help you sort through the material to identify the most significant, relevant bits. Jatin made me realize that most of what I thought was important, wasn’t in the context of my applications. He taught me how to express more via a very concise content.
9. Will be driven to make you succeed - will be your most intense Cheerleader and will keep your morale high: Applications are an intense, tough, stressful process. It is but natural for a candidate to hit bottlenecks, get tired, overwhelmed, confused and eventually want to give up. A good AC keeps the morale high, boosts you up when you’re down, tells you it’s okay to feel down and out, motivates you with success stories; and ensures you cross the finish line in style. He is like a pacer that long-distance runners use. Jatin never gave up on me even when I had given up on myself. I still remember when I wanted to give up mid-way when I hit a bottleneck in one of the submissions – Jatin spoke to me for an hour and pulled me out of a feeling of absolute hopelessness. He could just have allowed me to give up, but he fought like a tiger for me, with me! And he never billed me for that time.
10. Finishing touches: Fine-tuning the final material to give it that winning edge. Things like compressing it to the word limits, removing redundancy and polishing the language. Jatin has a fantastic flair for language and structure, and can make a train timetable sound like one of Rumi’s poems.
11. Is honest, upfront, relevant, objective, brutal, DETAILED & SPECIFIC in his feedback, without being unnecessarily harsh. This needs a phenomenal level of balanced EQ, IQ and maturity, which I was lucky to experience with Jatin.
12. Is knowledgeable about which school wants what in an essay: Jatin was clear and consistent on what each school looks for, and made it easier for me to understand what to present and how to present it. The same story can showcase many different things depending on the narrative and the context it is told in, and Jatin took my strongest stories and made them epic.

4. What will a good admissions consultant NOT do?
1. WILL NEVER WRITE THE MATERIAL FOR YOU. They may give you material for reference wrt structure of an essay, language, etc, WILL NEVER WRITE IT FOR YOU. Jatin made it clear upfront that this was my story, and only I could tell it in a fluid, convincing manner. He helped with the critique of the material and by asking insightful questions, but never wrote the core content for me.
2. Will never accept plagiarized material. I’ve faced Jatin’s wrath when in the initial days I sent him an essay with the middle part picked verbatim from an article on the net.
3. Will never compromise on quality of material. Jatin and I went through as many as 5 iterations for one essay to ensure I got to the meat of the matter, but never settled for second best or okay material.
4. Will not accept delays or slacking off or a casual attitude. This helps sustain a sense of urgency and also ensures that the candidate has a visibility of the finish line to keep him motivated during this intense process.
5. It’s not their job to be sweet or nice or polite. Their job is to give you honest, specific, objective, relevant, detailed and specific feedback to improve your material. Thank you Jatin, for being all of this.

Jatin Bhandari did all of the above and more. He was with me every step of the journey, and made the whole process a lot more enjoyable and simpler than it would have been without him by my side. He also enabled me to glean insights about myself that I didn’t know about; with his expertise, guidance and support, my application process metamorphosed into a phenomenal journey of self-discovery.

O Captain! My Captain! Our fearful trip is done;
The ship has weather'd every rack, the prize we sought is won;
The port is near, the bells I hear, the people all exulting,
While follow eyes the steady keel, the vessel grim and daring…


Jatin - Thank you for being there by my side during this daunting and difficult journey. You made it simple, more enjoyable, and an absolute success.

Hi
Like everyone else, after giving my GMAT I was looking for a consultant to help me guide through the daunting process of building an application for MBA college. I talked to a few consultants and also to proper academies which had a very structured approach and fixed schedules but I didn’t feel any connection. Then I came across Rahul from mbadream.in. The best part was with our first conversation I somehow knew that he would be the right choice. He didn’t make any fake promises/guarantees and told me that he will also work hard with me for my admission and also provided me contacts of his ex-students to clear my doubts and to get reviews about him and was also not pushing around like other consultants do before you hire them.
A great part of working with Rahul was that he was available all the time and was just a text/call away and could clear all the doubts, I came across. He really helped me drafting my essays and then again refining them. I couldn’t have imagined writing them all by myself with all ends covered and still within word limit. He also helped me prepare for the interview and I also had a mock interview with him. Another great part is that he is very or I would say most economical compared to other consultants and still so effective! I applied to ISB only this year working with him and got the admit.
So it was a great experience working with him.

Rahul from MBADream.
when I reached to Rahul for professional help with my MBA application, I was able to feel the amount of experience he carries in helping applicants in my first interactions itself. He was able to understand my expectations really quick and was able to put my thoughts together on the right track. He helped me with wonderful essays which captured the essence of the matter in a crisp manner. Despite of having some personal issues, Rahul worked with me to create concise application within the application deadline. I was able to secure admission in 3 of the 4 schools I worked with Rahul.

Moreover MBADream is the most affordable and experienced application consultancy I know off.

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!

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?

MBA dream based on my experience.

I have gone ahead with MBA Dream for my MBA school selection, application and interview process after going through the reviews and personal feedback from their students. Rahul is very focussed, efficient and result oriented from the start. He not only delivers what is promised in the package but goes beyond that in understanding the students issues and helping them if needed. In my case, I planned on applying for only US colleges at the start with Rahul, but just 2 days before the deadline for ISB, I told him that my preference changed and wanted to apply to ISB. Rahul did not need to support this as per the policy, but he supported the quick turn around and I could not only submit just an application but got through ISB in first attempt in R1. This situation clearly proves that he is student oriented and goes out of his way to make things happen. Even now during this crisis, he is constantly enquiring and supporting me through this scenario and helping me make proper decisions..I consider him as one of my mentors throughout my career. I wish him the very best in all future endeavours!

Rahul from MBADream

I was exploring professional consultants online immediately after my GRE and had talked to a few. During this process, fortuitously I also talked to one of my seniors on whether I should work with a consultant or not. And that is how I found out about Rahul. Right from the very first conversation I found Rahul to be a very motivating person. I had had my doubts on whether GRE was the right exam to apply for an MBA and whether I should write GMAT instead. Rahul reassured me that the GRE was the right exam and I had scored well enough to receive an admit along with a very generous scholarship from many schools. I had been very wayward in terms of school selection also, to which Rahul came to the rescue and made me apply in schools that I had a fair chance of getting what I was looking for. Once I had started with the process he made me brainstorm myself for framing a story on which I could write good application essays. Rahul had very wisely made me apply in schools that he considered will offer me a decent scholarship along with other benefits such as STEM designation. After getting an interview call in some of them Rahul also held mock interviews and made me feel ready for the interviews. Rahul is a very frank, very intelligent and dedicated guide. His readiness to talk to me and guide me any time of the day was very comforting. Rice was one of the first schools I applied at and it was largely due to the invaluable guidance that Rahul offered me that I finally received an admit from Rice MBA and that too with a very good amount of scholarship. I strongly recommend Rahul to anyone who is either planning on applying for an MBA program at world’s best B Schools.

Rahul from mbadream has a great understanding of what top business schools look for in a candidate. He made me realise what my strengths and weaknesses are and helped me understand post MBA goals in greater clarity. He understood my story and made me understand what in my profile, makes for a good MBA admissions story. He was always available to help edit an essay or take a call about a possible strategic direction. I think Rahul’s biggest USP is that he is easy to communicate with and he was more like a mentor and friend to me during the entire process. I ended up getting the school I wanted and will highly recommend him to anyone looking for support and guidance for MBA applications.

Rahul From MBA Dream

Rotaman (25K Scholarship), Vanderbilt (75% scholarship), Rice University (100 % Scholarship), Schulich (10K Scholarship) Georgia tech (100% scholarship)

I came to know about MBA dream through my friend who had secured a position in Carnegie Mellon after working with Rahul. She recommended me MBA dreams and it was one of my best decision.

Rahul will work with you on a personal level. He is just a call/text away. He will help you right from selecting colleges to sharing the best story for MBA essays to interviews. He will work on your stories, resume and interview preparations. He has helped me secure MBA Admissions in 7 colleges with full scholarships in 2 colleges. I am now recommending this consultancy to every friend of mine who is serious about MBA.

I would like to share my personal experience with Rahul from MBA Dream

I actually started the application process much lately...I had hardly a month's time to start up with my essays. And, I particularly wanted to apply for a varied and wide range of schools in the R1 itself. So, I couldn't empty my pockets for just 3-4 applications. So, I was looking for an affordable MBA consultant with an open mind to help me apply for various schools.

It was then, I checked out https://www.mbadream.in/ and was surprised by their pricing. And, accidentally I connected with some students at ISB, Tepper, and Rice and got to know that they took Rahul's help through their applications, which in turn gave me that credibility check.

So, eventually, I spoke up with Rahul, understood the strengths and weaknesses of my story. Things went really quick and within a short span, I was able to finish up my essays and successfully applied for all of the schools I have listed out. Rahul was always a call away, gave open feedback, and worked with me through the tighter deadlines. On top of that, he always helped me to boost up my spirits and supported me to have a positive mindset through the entire process as well.

Glad to mention that, I got through my target schools with a decent scholarship and would definitely recommend Rahul to any of the MBA aspirants.

Feel free to PM me if you would like to know any specific details. Happy to provide my insights.

I wish you all the best through your application journey!

Hi, My name is Ashish Khanna. I understand the pain and struggle of going through finding the right MBA admissions consultant who can help you sail through the turbulence of the b-school applications. I went through the same struggle while applying for B-schools in 2019. The struggle is then added with exorbitant prices and charges that the different MBA admissions consulting services cost the applicant.

I eventually understood it is not worth the money and effort to hire an MBA consultant. I ended up applying to b-schools and writing my own applications. To build some credibility here- I applied to IESE, INSEAD, LBS, Cambridge, and Oxford with a GMAT score of 690 and got an interview call from all the colleges and ended up doing my MBA from Cambridge (which was worth every penny). With a sub-standard GMAT score, every one in the MBA consulting space asked me to write the exam again and mentioned that my chances of even getting an interview call are very slim but I knew GMAT score is just one part of the application and I packed a good application all together and I applied anyways and the rest is history.

Now, I am writing this message for people who are looking for help in their MBA application journey and who don't want to splash a lot of money. I believe if I was able to do write my MBA application and get calls for A-list b-school, then I can help others too. One of the key aspects while choosing a consultant is compatibility with the admission's consultant and if interested to know more, no need of an email or filling a form, just WA me on +919742696849 and we can take it from there :)

When I started my MBA application journey, I was already late to the party. Most of my friends had either submitted their applications or were already working with an admission consultant. I started reaching out to all the admission consultants in the industry, only to realize that they were either supremely overpriced or not accommodating last minute entrants like me.

A friend of mine then recommended me to get in touch with Rahul bhai (as I call him) from "mbadream". Based on the initial call itself, I knew I found my mentor who will help me navigate this arduous and daunting journey. He was extremely calm and assured me that I will still be able to meet my deadlines. I felt as if I won half the battle that day itself.

Over the next 2 months, I worked on 7-8 different applications (with overlapping deadlines) but I always had Rahul and the exceptionally talented team at mbadreams to support me throughout the process. Whether it be the brainstorming sessions, or the essay, or the mock interviews, mbadream is a one stop shop for all the needs.

Rahul was ever approachable even during the toughest days of the pandemic and that reflects his commitment to the candidate's success story. One thing that makes Rahul stand out from the other admission consultants is that he is brutally honest. In hindsight, I attribute my success to those harsh yet honest feedback sessions which were instrumental in crafting a convincing story for the applications.

I genuinely wouldn't have made it to the University of Oxford (Saïd Business School) if it weren't for Rahul & mbadream. To sum it up, one can only imagine to get this kind of an industry expertise at this price anywhere else. Put your trust in mbadream and you'll definitely cross the finish line!

I started my journey with Arvind from Dream School Admit in Nov 2019. Before I met him, I had an unsuccessful application to my dream school due to a very low GMAT score. First things first, Arvind insisted that the GMAT score was just one aspect of the application and that boost from him was a real game changer for me. He also motivated me to retake my test and the efforts paid off. I managed to have a good competitive score, all thanks to him for pushing me to work for it :)

Arvind believed in me and in my strengths and ensured we put forth a strong application. He has a keen eye to notice and highlight the finer details and thus enhance the quality of your entire application. I jokingly used to tell him, "I would've never known I'm capable of all this had you not pointed it out to me" :)
Arvind certainly is an expert in his field and there were so many instances where I thought to myself, this is exactly as he said it would be.

And the best part, he became more of a friend as we transitioned the application process. Arvind is a genuine, warm and a very positive person who genuinely wants the best for you. Although I received admits from multiple schools, we kept working until we both thought that 'This is it' :) . I'm happy to say that I finally accepted the offer from Manchester Business School.

I highly recommend Arvind for the genuine person that he is and for his expertise and I'm sure he will take all the efforts to help you achieve your best.

Hi Nishant7,

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