Application and Interview Prep charges
Searching for an MBA Consultant?
Don’t want to pay a consulting fee upfront without any guarantee of quality work and success?
and you have these question?
“How much time will be devoted to my application? Will I get proper personalised attention?”
“How many edits will you do on my essays? Is there a limit? What is the typical turnaround time?”
“How often will you be available on call or chat, if I need to discuss something?”
Every year on our facebook group ‘GMAT Avengers consulting‘, we hear multiple unfortunate stories of candidates, who paid some well-intentioned MBA admissions consultant a lot of money and were still dissatisfied with the results. So this year we decided that:
Yes you heard it right, we have decided to work with carefully selected clients for their B-school applications and charge them only when they successfully receive an interview invite or an admit offer from the school. In order to deliver the best results possible, we provide:

How we work?
Free 30 minutes initial consultation call:
We start with having a 30 minutes consultation call, where we will discuss you profile and give you a brief evaluation. We will be happy to answer any questions you might have regarding your profile during this call before committing to work with us. If you and our team agree to work together, we will send you a confirmation E-mail with agreement and T&C.
Agreement and Security deposit:
Before we start working, you would need to make a security deposit in our account for the consulting services being rendered as a form of accepting the agreement. If you get an interview call from your desired B-school we will accept this security deposit as a payment and if you do not get an interview invite we will refund you the deposit as agreed upon. NO QUESTIONS ASKED!!
Brain Storming (Skype calls):
We start with couple of hours of brain storming. It is the time to explore the depth of your professional experience and to find out the quality experiences which can be crafted into outstanding stories. We utilise the brainstorming call to discuss the specific content for each essay for the chosen school. After we agree on a plan of action, the applicant will start drafting the essays.
Essay Drafts and Editting:
In the initial rounds, we focus on the building blocks – strategy, structure, positioning, consistency. Be prepared to have your original draft ripped apart (remember that we are in this together) and tons of suggestions that you can incorporate in the essays before you send back the updated draft. We leave the final round for polishing.
Recommendations are one of the most critical parts of a well rounded application. Along with the essays we will start working on the recommendations and guide you on whom to choose as your recommenders. We wait till 2 drafts of the essays have been completed before initiating the recommendation reviews. This is to ensure that the content is aligned across your application.
Resume is the last and final piece of your application. We will start the resume review process in parallel with the essay reviews and make sure all the content on your resume is aligned with the achievement we are highlighting in the application stories. We will work together to make sure everything fits in and portrays one awesome personality.
Application Submission and Interview Call
Once your essays, resume and recommendations are ready, we will submit your application and request you to send us the final PDF of your entire application. If you get an interview invite from the B-school we will keep the security deposit as a payment for consulting services rendered or else we will issue a refund as agreed upon.
Interview Prep and Admit Offer
Once you receive an interview invite, we would again sign a new agreement and security deposit. Your interview prep would include 1 call for helping you craft your answer to most common questions and 2 mock interviews of 30 mins each with feedback sessions. If you get a final call from the school we will keep the security deposit as a payment or else you will get a 100% refund.
We work with only a carefully selected number of clients to deliver the best consulting experience so that our clients get the personalised attention they have signed up for. We are fully committed to deliver on our promise of ‘pay when you get selected’. Therefore, to maintain our commitment and quality of service we work only with 10-15 clients at a time.
Frequently asked questions
Do we have any connection with Adcom?
No!! We just have confidence in our capabilities and knowledge gained from past experiences.
Who is going to write essays?
All candidates write their own essays based on the discussion held during brain storming sessions. We will only edit and polish your essays. We work together to ensure that you put in the strongest application. But it has to be your work, your stories, your goals.
How many hours of consulting do I get?
There are no fixed number of hours. Since we only get paid when you get selected, we will go all the extra miles needed to get you selected.
Why do we charge for school’s above ISB in FT Rankings?
We have decided to charge for schools rankings above ISB, so that we can ensure that we are working only with candidates who are serious about their MBA applications.
