TESTIMONIALS

I got admits from 8 of the 11 schools I applied to. With 670 on GMAT, an engineering degree, and four years of IT experience, I was, honestly, not expecting such results!

I came to Experts’ seeking help on my applications with 680 on GMAT. It was September and I did not have time to improve my score. However, I was guided to prepare for GMAT as the help from Experts’ eased the applications burden on me. While I achieved a 750 on GMAT with the Experts’ Global Guidance Program, my applications were also almost completed. I still applied everywhere in Round-1 and achieved multiple admits with great scholarships!
