Neha: IT industry -> Simon

He is the most organized and systematic person to work with, which makes the application process so much simple.

I worked with Karthik for 7 of my R3 applications and converted 5 schools, including Olin.

I gave my GMAT in January and then was faced with a challenge of completing the applications within a short span of time since R3 deadlines for international candidates were approaching.

I approached two consultants before Karthik. One of them clearly told me that completing the applications on such a short notice is not possible. The other consultant showed me a rosy picture and assured me that by working with him I’ll be able to get into the top 20 schools in R3. I chose to work with him since he reassured me of good results with a guarantee. He started the application writing process without knowing anything about me. He wrote the first draft of essay himself, which was very philosophical and didn’t go with my profile at all. I was disappointed.

After going through the GMAT club reviews of August academy, I spoke to Karthik. The best thing that I liked about Karthik is that he is so straightforward and honest with you. He told me that R3 will be very difficult to crack and he can’t promise top 20 schools but we will certainly try and not give up.

He took his time to know about me and wanted me to make my story unique. He really worked hard on me and pushed me to write quality essays on my own. He gave me the liberty of writing the first draft the way I wanted to and then we would polish it more through iterations.

Throughout my application journey, Karthik’s suggestions were instrumental. He gave the right suggestions at the right time. He was also very quick in responding to my queries and also worked on weekends with me when the deadlines were very near. He was very professional and never edited the language of my essays. This indeed helped me as my essays sounded more natural. He is the most organized and systematic person to work with, which makes the application process so much simple. We were able to complete the applications of 7 schools in 25 days.

I sincerely thank Karthik for his guidance in making my dream come true.
