He encouraged me every step of the way – be it prior to my GMAT exam, when my applications were sent in or when I was called for an interview. His insight into the interview questions/responses helped me immensely during my interviews.
Firstly and foremost, thank you to all the members of the GMATClub. I would have not found my consultant without your help.
I signed up with Karthik – August Academy (http://www.augustacademy.in) after reading his reviews on GMATClub. I had spoken with other consultants prior to Karthik; however he stood out because of his intelligence and personality. I worked with him on 5 applications which resulted in interviews from all the schools. All my applications were filed in R2.
Karthik is a thorough professional and took the time to understand my background. Accordingly we brainstormed and worked together in compiling the essays/resume that would highlight my key areas of expertise, my strengths and my accomplishments. He encouraged me every step of the way – be it prior to my GMAT exam, when my applications were sent in or when I was called for an interview. His insight into the interview questions/responses helped me immensely during my interviews.
Couple of things that I did appreciate: Karthik did not spoon feed during the application process. This was extremely vital as I wanted my applications to project who I was. Secondly he was very accommodating and available (considering there was a 10 hour time difference) for multiple rounds of review. Other consultants whom I had spoken with indicated that they would cover only 2 or 3 rounds of review. Thirdly he repeatedly stressed on honesty and quality of the applications – a virtue that I appreciate and that is extremely important in the essays and the interview process.
Bottom Line: I definitely got my money’s worth working with Karthik. My journey and acceptance into B-School (Emory – this was #1 on my list of schools) would not have been possible without his help. Thanks Karthik and August Academy !! If there are questions with regards to my experience, would be happy to answer them.
