The MBA application process can be quite challenging at first. Finding a benchmark and evaluating oneself is hard. When I began my application process, I wasn't very confident about my chances. Shailesh and Mayank evaluated my profile thoroughly and were very patient in understanding my constraints and requirements. Their mentorship helped me, not just with my applications to universities abroad, but also through the application process to Indian schools."
