This review is for Wharton
Program Full Time MBA
Class of 2020
I have been admitted to Wharton's Class of 2020. I have been very satisfied with my experience and exposure in the school so far. Wharton has a very dedicated staff working constantly to provide the best student experience. They have a huge focus on 'maximizing Wharton experience' and are committed to achieving this target. I was amazed by the way they have effectively and efficiently managed a class size of 800, ensuring sufficient networking opportunities in both small and large group settings. The school is committed to help you not only get the best professional career path, but grow as an individual. Wharton has an approx. 3 weeks of pre-class program, where the intent is to familiarize the student with the different school resources and work on one's teamwork & leadership skills. This ensured that I had sufficient time to settle down in school, and not feel overwhelmed with the various resources/ opportunities available. Wharton also has its flagship course on 'Teamwork and Leadership' which is specifically focused on teaching managers to build effective teams via a patented simulation analysis. For career services, the school does not allow employeer chats/ session in the first quarter, so that students get sufficient time to prepare. The school has a dedicated career services team which is divided basis the various industries. We can book regular advising sessions with them, and clarify all our doubts over mail as well. They are very responsive. For student life, the school has a club for everything you can possibly imagine. So it's important to be clear with the intent of pursuing a certain activity. In short, I am pleasantly very pleased with Wharton's overall culture. Everyone is very nice, and tries to help each other. The school has a huge focus on teamwork which gets reflected in all the course assignments that we get. One opportunity area could be in terms of student diversity. The school is filled with consultants and bankers.

I had taken the Magoosh Premium Course to start my preparation for the GMAT test. It was referred to me by a friend who was able to get a 750 course using this series. Even though I got a score of only 640, the course was very helpful in making me understand the basic concepts. It was the right starting foundation which helped me in my further preparation. I complemented it with OG and Manhattan mocks. The videos were very helpful in helping me get my fundamentals clear. But the best part of Magoosh course are the online video explanations which keep the users engaged.
I completed all the sections of the verbal Online Course, in the exact manner as recommended. I contacted one of e-gmat's executiive based out of delhi, and seeked his help to design my detailed study plan. The executive was very helpful and flexible. He helped me identify my weaknesses by evaluating the ESR of my first GMAT test, and then guided me how the verbal online course can help. I went through all the videos and discovered that there were so many new concepts that I had not understood before. The course is really a must for everyone preparing for GMAT.
I liked working with Admissionado team. They have always been very responsive and ensured that I deliver to the best of abilities throughout the process. Even though the complete admission process is very stressful, but Shana (my consultant) ensured that I don't let that stress affect my judgment. She knows what she was doing and was always there for me to give me the right advice. This is the first time I was going through this experience, and I had a lot of reservations before hiring admissionado. But they completely met my expectations and helped me prepare my applications for 3 schools- Yale, Kellogg, Fuqua. I would recommend everyone to consider them.
