Today I want to share an interesting review of a very unique MBA consulting website that is MBA and Beyond. At first, I heard about it from my peers and also found MBAANDBEYOND.COM Review on the GMAT Club Forum. Although most of the reviews were verified, I still wanted to do a background check, and below are the results that I found.
First of all, let’s look at a few USPs of MBA and Beyond that we found on their page, MBAANDBEYOND.COM Reviews.
- Working with MBA & Beyond helps you raise your bar higher as he makes you work multiple times if he thinks there is a chance of improvement. This definitely helped me put my best foot forward.
- The process of “self-discovery” guides applicants to rethink their stories and choose the most convincing stories for their application.
- MBA and beyond, the whole team is extremely committed to the process, putting in many odd hours to help build applicants’ profiles and stories.
When going through MBAANDBEYOND.COM Reviews, I found out that some of the applicants connected with alums of top b-schools in their coffee events, where they share their experiences.
I spoke to many different people, and a lot of them asked me questions that I felt were being plugged into a foolproof equation that was known to provide results. However, I found MBA and Beyond most relevant because-
- I felt that the team understood my personal strengths and motivations, and they didn’t boil my experience and personal qualities down to math (such was the case for many applicants that I found on MBAANDBEYOND.COM Reviews)
- I didn’t feel pressure to score exceptionally well on my GMAT or that the GMAT score was the make or break for my school- the encouragement and tone through and through were always to give it my best shot.
- Their success rate/ track record in helping secure INSEAD admits for applicants with low GMAT scores. It was also something that was very well highlighted on their page MBAANDBEYOND.COM Reviews.
As I’m also targeting MBA this year, I was looking at MBAANDBEYOND.COM Review, where I found this inspiring success story; you can also go through it once.
I had worked with other consultants in previous application cycles, and a specific thing I was looking for while choosing a consultant was someone who didn’t have a hands-off approach to my application. Since I had a low GPA and a slightly above-average GMAT/GRE, most other consultants spoke about how that was my only gap and how I should target Tier 2 schools. But MBA & Beyond totally stood out to me. In our initial meeting, after I shared my profile with them, they returned with a list of specific strengths and gaps with a strategy for addressing each of these in the applications. This put my mind at ease right in the beginning as their logic was convincing, and I knew I wouldn’t get any generalized advice. They were willing to be ambitious with me and aim for the best tough programs.
MBA & Beyond has an excellent content-gathering portal that makes you dig deep and write down the stories you would use in essays. It was unique as they asked the bare minimum questions needed to put forth a good application and understand my context and background. This meant that I didn’t spend time filling out a lengthy document that I wouldn’t use later in the application. A service that I was highly impressed with was that apart from my consultant, there were at least three people in touch with me from MBA & B to make sure I made good progress at each stage, encouraging me to dig deeper in specific areas.
Rajat Garg was assigned as my consultant. From the beginning, it was clear that he had gone through my content-gathering document in detail, which meant we could get started almost immediately. Rajat and MBA&B offered complete support, all the way from selecting my schools to receiving an acceptance. What I appreciated most about working with Rajat was the structure he brought to the whole process. The workload at times seemed overwhelming with the multiple essays and deliverables for each school, but Rajat kept me calm by breaking down the work, bringing clarity to what I was expected to do, and giving me the right feedback. He was extremely committed to the process, putting in many odd hours because of the time zone difference to edit essays and help build my profile and story.
MBA & Beyond is the right name for them as they really do go beyond their call of duty, whether it was sharing essay and resume samples for your target schools, getting additional feedback for your essays from other consultants, interview prep with specific feedback, or just being available on call or WhatsApp to clear the innumerable doubts that pop up in your mind during the process. They were with me every step of the way.
While a lot of hard work writing essays, building your resume, networking with alumni, and doing school research has to happen from your end, MBA&B is an extremely reliable partner to have in this process. A great sounding board that you can rely on for honest, efficient advice.
I received an acceptance from INSEAD this week. And am looking forward to hearing from other schools in the later months. I have thoroughly enjoyed the application process and can’t thank Rajat and MBA & Beyond enough.
When I started my journey, I knew which school I wanted to target, but I had no idea how to go about it. My research for MBA Consultants started at a time when I was desperate to find the right consultant fit for my profile, and this is where the MBAANDBEYOND.COM Reviews page helped me a lot to understand the different consultants they have and help me align with a few of them according to my resume and profile. So finally, on the basis of my thorough research on MBAANDBEYOND.COM Reviews, I feel confident enough to start my MBA journey with MBA and Beyond.
