Low GMAT Re-applicant -> 3 acceptance in top 20 Schools

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

I am from Brazil and I applied with a Brazilian consultant in the 2020 cycle with a 630 GMAT to a number of top 15-30 schools. I got 3 waitlists (Cornell (no interview), UNC (with interview) and Georgetown (with interview). For the 2021 cycle, I saw the deal that Expert's Global had with GMAT + Consulting, and the price was in close to my budget. I enjoyed the process because the team is very straightforward, organized and flexible to changes and discussions. The team works very well trough email, and for those who like to get phone calls, they will do it a lot if you wish to! The team met my expectations because they improved a lot my essays and helped me create my re-applicants and optional essays in a structured and solid form. One challenge for those who are international (US not first language) is the Indian accent through the calls (I had some difficulty in some cases, but hey! I am international as well, so I think it worked both ways :). With the Expert's GMAT prep I managed to get a 660, and I believe that because of that I managed to get accepted in Georgetown, Esade and Bocconi. In the end I just applied for these 3 schools, so I got a 100% application success. I believe that if I got a more competitive GMAT score, they would definitely help me to get into one of my dream schools (Cornell, Yale or Oxford), but I did not want to spend $250 for each school, since GT, ESADE and Bocconi are top tier schools!

Pros: competitive price, very good communication (emails, phone calls, skype, interview prep) and objective driven.
They will do everything they can to help you get a Scholarship!

Cons: GMAT online course was very good, but I think that the quizzes and questions are not similar to the real GMAT questions.

Personal Opinion: if your budget is moderate, definitely Expert's Global must be in the decision picture. However, for those who has the ways and means $$$$$$, I believe there are consultants that can provide a more intimate and strong application prep in general.

Quant Questions Not Similar to Real GMAT

REVIEWER IDENTITY VERIFIED by post count [?]

Hello everyone!
I bought the 15 Full Mocks to practice after taking the GMAT twice. I scored 620 and 630 in those attempts (Q43,44 - V32-33).

I managed to do 6 Mocks when I studied for 3 months to take my 3rd attempt. My scores were
680 (Q47)
690 (Q48)
670 (Q46)
700 (Q49)
710 (Q49)
680 (Q48)

I was VERY confident that my quant would be at least Q46, in the real exam, however I got a Q45 (!!!!!), I was devasted!!!! Honestly, I felt the Mocks were kinda different from real gmat questions, but I tought that because I had studied with Kaplan (TERRIBLE) and by myself, I taught that the questions were Ok in the end.

I managed to get 660 in my score, but I did not think that it is so good as 5 star review.
