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!

History

The University was founded by the name of Massachusetts Agricultural College in 1863 with the intention to provide instructions to the Massachusetts citizens in the “agricultural, mechanical and military arts.” The College was renamed as Massachusetts State College in 1931 due to the rise in the number of enrolments and continuous expansions. The Isenberg School of Management started as the School of Business Administration in 1947. The first MBA degree was awarded in 1953. In 1964, the School moved to its current building in the heart of the UMass Amherst Campus.

I was looking only for direction for my essays from expert’s global when i signed up with them. Once i did sign up they gave me this direction in the form of a self assessment document which would help them understand me & my perspective better. This was all I needed from them and the self introspection inspired me to write my own MBA admission essays. My mentor did write me some essays. They were written well and answered every question asked but were definitely run-of-the-mill. My interaction with my mentor was at a minimum because I had already understood what I wanted. That being said, I have to credit Expert’s Global for pushing me to self introspect (with the self assessment document) myself which led me to join my dream school, Babson College.
