REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by gmat club tests [?]

Chris Gentry was a fantastic tutor and GMAT advisor. First of all, Chris is a verbal whiz, he was able to raise my verbal score from a measly 31 to a 40+ in just a few sessions. His sessions are carefully thought out and he does his best to personalize the experience. My problem with quant was more on the strategy side than the material. Chris helped me formulate a strategy that raised my score from a 44-46 to a consistent 48+. Additionally, Manhattan Prep offers fantastic quantitative prep work. Their questions are as challenging as can be and the best way to quickly improve your quant score.

All in all - fantastic tutor, fantastic material. I was able to raise my score from 580 to 710 in just a few weeks!

To kick off this review, I will say I am not the most straight forward candidate. I have a sub-par (<2.5) GPA, no alternative transcript, and 3 years of work experience at a no-name tech firm.

Every MBA consultant either turned me away, insisted that I apply to part-time programs, or asked that I apply to lower ranked schools. However, I was determined to join a full-time top 20 program and needed a coach to guide me through the process.

Harshad was exactly that and much more. Right from the start he was honest and let me know that if I wanted to punch above my weight, I'd have to approach the process swinging, and that he would help guide me through it. Harshad was always available at a moment's notice and truly helped me refine and craft my essays, story, and pitch. Harshad truly is an awesome story-teller and can really bring out a top notch applicant in anyone he works with.

In the end I not only gained admission to a top 20 full-time program, but I did so with a bloody full scholarship! To this day I can't believe it. Looking back at my essays that I attempted to write before I met Harshad and comparing them to my completed essays after working with Harshad, it is clear that there is no way I would be where I am today without him.

To anyone thinking about working with Harshad - biting the bullet and hiring him saved me two years worth of MBA tuition (>$120k in tuition fees!); unbelievable!

I would recommend Harshad to anyone who is going through the application process. There is no doubt Harshad will put you on the path to achieving your goals!
