"Let me take this opportunity to thank you for all your help in the essay writing etc. Though I didn't make it to the schools we targeted initially, I loved the systematic approach and experience.
After working for more than 10 years in IT industry, I was skeptic to apply for an MBA program. Though I was able to score 720 in my 4th GMAT attempt, I was not convinced about my chances at the top schools because of a common profile. When I started to evaluate my profile from MBA consultants, I came across MBA4India and spoke to Deepak. After speaking to him for the 1st time, I was convinced to work only with him. He guided me end-to-end, starting from assessing my strengths and weaknesses and shortlist schools to writing concise essays. He guided me about how/why/when to visit schools, how to follow up with adcoms and best practices for interview preparation. He completely transformed my essays into a powerful pitch. Their in-house developed tools and methodologies forced me to do deep introspection and self-discovery. Doing these exercises not only helped me in writing true/compelling story about me but also made me comfortable in taking interviews. I am extremely grateful to Deepak to guide and mentor me in the process. If you are reading this testimonial, I strongly recommend you to speak to Deepak once, may be just for a profile evaluation and feel the difference yourself."

"I decided to apply to business schools in December 2015 but was unable to take the GMAT exam until the very end due to work pressures. Finally in March 2016, I took a date for late July and started to focus on the exam. Unfortunately, I landed a score in low 700’s. With round 1 and early action deadlines approaching fast, I had no time to retake the test. So I decided to write strong essays and apply early. This is when I realised that I would need someone to handhold me through the process, sharpen my story and help me devise a school specific strategy. A friend of mine strongly recommended that I contact Deepak. I therefore reached out to MBA4India and they agreed to work with me despite the strong time crunch that we had. In round 1, I applied to 5 schools out of top 10 and got waitlisted at 3 of them. I now needed strategic action to strengthen my case and convert my waitlists. Deepak advised me on how to reach out to the adcom of the schools and helped me customise my updates to each one of them. I retook my GMAT as well and this time I scored a 740 plus score. My focused updates and renewed GMAT score helped me convert all my waitlists into admits. I will be joining a top 7 school this fall. Deepak has played a pivotal role in my journey to business school and his guidance helped me maintain my cool during times of utmost frustration. To all future applicants, I would strongly recommend reaching out to Deepak and getting at least a profile assessment done before you start your applications. All the best!"
"Transitioning from a Military background to a Corporate future at 44 years- I thought I was at an adrenalin rush. Having scored a 700 on GMAT, I had my goal set on ISB, IBEAR and Schulich School of Business and nothing more.I came across MBA4India on the net and spoke to Deepak – Under fire in any operation trust your gut- and I knew this was the place for me and my dreams.
Deepak put me through to Abhilash and that – Deepak’s judgement in compatibility and mentor recommendation was the key- was the single most important and pivotal decision in my essay build up. In any University, the essay and the theme is the show stopper. Abhilash with his high tolerance levels to my novice overtures and queries, guided me thoroughly and patiently with utter professionalism and a personal suave.
The turning point came when Abhilash motivated me to apply for Stanford when I had not even thought of that option and Lo Behold, today I am ready to step in the world’s best. Abhilash really helped me through my application process and for Stanford, he suggested a theme which I am sure was the single biggest factor in getting me an admit and a good scholarship. I have 5 admits at hand, courtesy Abhilash and as I join Stanford I am whole heartedly indebted to Abhilash and Deepak."
