Shaifali was absolutely integral to the success of my MBA applications, and I genuinely do not think I could not have done it without her guidance.
As an overrepresented applicant (Asian male in finance) coming from a non-target school with below average test-scores and a mediocre GPA, I did not think that I would have a shot at many of the top programs. However, from our first 20-minute intro call, she instilled a sense of confidence in me that I did not know existed, which eventually resulted in multiple offers for M7 schools (with scholarship as well!). Shaifali’s primary differentiators from many of the other top MBA consultants are that 1) she is incredibly genuine and empathetic with an uncanny ability to observe your unique strengths and weaknesses 2) knows how to present these unique traits in a manner is attractive to the top programs and 3) understands the multi-step, MBA application process extremely well and can provide outstanding advice on how to navigate through the intricacies of each school’s processes. The process of applying to these top schools is no-doubt a daunting task, but Shaifail found a way to make it enjoyable and a lot less stressful. At the time I had initially contacted Shaifali, I was working late hours and had not taken my GRE/GMAT let alone started thinking about my application. Over the next few months, she was able to adjust to my incredibly rigid/overwhelming work schedule, while being super-efficient during each of our sessions. We went through dozens of iterations on each of my essays until both of us felt like they were in pristine shape. She also had fantastic insight into each school’s interview process, which made the actual interview process feel like a breeze. All in all, I cannot say enough positive things about my time working with Shaifali. Because of her, I will be attending Wharton in the fall – a school I had only dreamed of being accepted to before the start of the process!
