Admits from Ivey, Rotman & McGill with generous scholarships.
I got in touch with Arvind in early 2020 after extensive research on GMAT club, Google. I was skeptical at first as Dream school admit wasn’t the biggest name in this space and I had reached out to other prominent names as well. I can say now that I’m extremely satisfied with his inputs. Listing down a few pointers for brevity but his help can’t be captured in a few words:
1. Prompt action: His promptness on the initial stages made him the first choice. And I found it consistent throughout the tenure of 2 months
2. Personalized: This is the biggest advantage and you won’t get it from the prominent names. Every essay has to be personalized and not generalized. He spent enough time with me to understand my story, my perspectives to weave the story in 250-300 words
3. Great editing skills: Polishing each and every essay requires a lot of effort and time. This is his magic wand.
4. Knowledge of asks of each & every B school: Every B school requires candidates with a different set of profiles. His knowledge of the same really helps in tailoring your essay as per the B school requirements.
I strongly recommend his service in the MBA application journey.
I’d been working in consulting for over 3 years and wished to pursue my MBA to transition into full-time consulting in future. After weeks of thorough research and conversations with admission consultants, Arvind caught my eye. Within minutes of our very first communication, he not only suggested to me the various schools I could apply to in my target country – Canada, but also alleviated my fears on whether I could make it to my dream B-school with a common Indian profile and a GMAT score of 710. He was so certain and assertive in his opinion that I shouldn’t settle for anything less than the top 2 schools!
Arvind was very patient throughout the whole process, even when I missed our mutually discussed deadlines due to a high workload. I was impressed by his poise and structure of communication while writing the essays; he ensured that I gave my essays a personal touch even if they were just 250 words long. Further, his mock interviews trained me for the worst and trickiest of questions such that all my anxiousness and nervousness faded away – the confidence that he showed in me kept me motivated and helped me project my best self to the interviewers. I cracked Rotman – the first and the only B-school I had applied to, with a scholarship of CAD 30,000 and a Forte Fellowship (which I didn’t even aim for and didn’t even know about!), and it wouldn’t have been possible without Arvind’s guidance. Not only that, he went beyond his role and also mentored me on how I could add more value to my profile, post receiving the B-school offer. He is simply brilliant at what he does!!
I recommend Dream School Admit to everyone embarking on this journey of selecting and applying to a B-school. Arvind’s promptness and critical analysis of your profile and interviewing skills will make sure that you stand out amidst hundreds in the rat race.
It was my third GMAT attempt and I got the score of 650. I wasn’t very confident of applying, but wanted to go ahead and apply as I knew I won’t be able to attempt GMAT once again. I knew I needed help and advice and I started searching for consultants. I came across many consultant companies on GMAT club. I read testimonials and started writing mails to them. I spoke to the representatives/owners of around 7 companies. Some of them were charging exorbitant fees and some were not willing to listen properly to my needs.
I wasn’t convinced and my further search landed me on Quora. I got to read some interesting testimonials on Quora about Arvind of DreamSchooladmit and I thought of giving it a try. I contacted Arvind and the best thing about Arvind is that he first listened to my MBA needs. Before jumping into the prices and package, Arvind helped me craft the story. After we finalized the story, I decided to engage with him for the application and interview process.
Ranging from reviewing and editing my essays, resume, and even the guidance on video essays, every advice of his helped me not only in putting out the best possible version but also a great learning for me as I was getting to know more about myself in the process. Arvind reviewed my Resume 8 times to bring out the best Resume for Adcoms. Arvind had worked closely with Adcoms and so, he knew exactly what kind of questions can be asked. Once invited for interview, you can’t afford to do a blunder in the interviews. Arvind made sure that I deliver best and after 4 mock interviews, I was able to answer any question confidently.
Having Arvind at my side throughout the application process was a confidence booster for me, as he didn’t let me think down even once. He believed in my talent more than I did myself. This is my first testimonial for anyone and I strongly recommend Arvind Arun of DreamSchoolAdmit for the best possible help you can get in nominal prices. I got an offer from Schulich and awaiting from 1 more college.
Arvind from Dream School Admit has been fundamental to my success. I cannot thank him enough for his contributions; he supported and guided me throughout the process. I feel that without his help the entire journey would have been 10x difficult.
Arvind never tried to change or influence my decision, I choose my college and he gave his suggestions, but it was always my decision to go to the college. Having an Indian IT male profile, with an average GMAT score of 690, I was always at a disadvantage. That time Arvind helped me in choosing the colleges strategically, He laid out the plan for the rounds and tackled each application. The best thing was, Despite being super involved in helping other candidates, he was always a message away. Sometimes, when I was feeling low, his wisdom also helped me in gaining confidence in myself to write an application for the next college.
Today, after completing five applications with Arvind and having been admitted to Ivey Business School with a scholarship, I would definitely recommend Arvind to anyone and everyone who is planning to take this huge step in your life.
Working with Arvind was probably the most crucial part of my MBA journey as I feel as if I didn’t have enough exposure back then.
Before I get into a few very important takeaways from working with him, I should let the readers know what I found most valuable qualities of Arvind: adding value to the information set of the applicant, and ensuring to keep the application genuine, rather than polishing the experience one might not be able to sell during interviews.
Before I made my financial commitment to his counseling services, Arvind had already provided me with so much valuable information over trial calls that I knew then and there that, I had landed the right place.
Now, it was the 9th of April when I started to work with Arvind. 11th April was the deadline for the Ivey MBA program and by 11 am on the 11th, we had done our part. On 13th late evening, I received the interview offer and on 4th May, I received an admit at Western University with a significant scholarship. Around 48 hours only for the application process right from scratch! Everything was kept genuine and that really helped me during my interview and significantly added to my confidence.
He was available on calls, texts, video assessment interviews, for multiple mock interviews, and whenever I felt low or anxious. I can go on for a while regarding how he actually ensured I don’t overspend for his services, or how he managed to expand my network over LinkedIn for me to gain some insight about the Ivey MBA program, etc. but you get the idea.
Arvind probably won’t spoon-feed you, he’ll guide you to become a better MBA candidate and I find that absolutely beautiful.
Working with Arvind from Dream School Admit was extremely insightful and very easy. I’d spoken to a couple of consultants previously and felt that they impose their perspective and don’t pay too much heed to your story/thoughts. This wasn’t the case with Arvind. I was extremely happy to note that Arvind listens keenly to your perspective and helps enhance your story. On many occasions I felt he articulated my exact thoughts in a more succinct manner. He has an impeccable understanding of what adcoms want and helps you introspect and organize your thoughts and story accordingly. He ensures that the essense of your story isn’t lost and moulds it to perfection. He is extremely patient and adheres to timelines diligently. Out of the 5 colleges he helped me with, I landed 3 interviews and decided to accept the admit from UBC, Sauder School of Business. I’d definitely recommend Arvind and Dream School Admit to anyone who is applying to top b-schools.
I had a 670 on my GMAT and like any other first-time applicant, I had a lot of questions in mind. Even after speaking with various admission consultants, I was unsure of how to effectively position my profile. This is when I got in touch with Arvind and things quickly fell into place after that.
Arvind has a very structured approach which helps you to navigate the admissions process with a lot of confidence. His understanding of what the Adcoms look for in a profile is incredible and these insights tremendously help in creating a well-rounded application. He always pushes you to aim higher and ensures that you give each application your best shot. If it was not for his guidance and his push, I couldn’t have secured an admission from Schulich with an average GMAT score. Through our multiple discussions, I could clearly identify my strengths and the areas I needed to work on.
I am glad that I went with Dream School Admit, as now, after the completion of the admissions process, I am in a much more confident headspace. It has been a truly transformative experience.
Received Admits from –
Like pretty much everyone else I was quite clueless once I was done with my GMAT score. Finding the right university along with other factors was a cumbersome and confusing process. I came to know about Dream School Admit via one of my friends. I immediately contacted Arvind on LinkedIn and since then it has been an immensely insightful journey for me.
Arvind helped me with shortlisting B-schools, considering my aims and current market demands, along with working on literally each and every aspect of the application process. Not only was he patient enough to listen to all my concerns and worries but also acted as a support system when needed.
Thank you so much, Arvind, for guiding me every step of the way, keeping me motivated and always being one call away. I could not have done it without you!!
I strongly recommend Arvind Arun from Dream School Admit, because he will not only act as your mentor but also as a friend, since the whole application process could be a bit exhausting, you need someone to give you that ray of hope. Arvind has been that ray of hope for me throughout the process.
Now, I cannot be more excited to begin my MBA journey at the Schulich School of Business in Toronto.

I found about dream school admit through my individual research. I had contacted various consulting agencies and my initial conversation with Arvind got me sold to Dream School. It was Arvind’s approach and shared understanding about my concerns in my search for the right consultant and unbiased support and help before I had even signed them up for the consultancy converted me.
Starting off from the colleges, Arvind helped me maneuver through the list of colleges and help me shortlist with logic and rationale which gave me more clarity than I was able to achieve on my own. Next up, the process of writing SOPs was a daunting task for me as I had already applied to 6 colleges for the previous term on my own and couldn’t crack any. Arvind’s approach of asking the right questions and understanding of what each school looks for help me write my essays better. Of course, after each draft I submitted, Arvind would do something so different to the whole essay which would make it look 10x professional but still be able to carry the same essence and story I would want to share with the AdCom members. I was absolutely satisfied with the quality of essays we were able to submit to the schools. Arvind also helped me polish my CV with the right keywords and elements to make it look more comprehensive and attractive to schools and recruiters alike.
For the interviews, I think this was a bang for the buck as the questions which Arvind helped me prepare for in
advance were the entire sample for the questions I was asked by the schools during the interviews. With simple mock preps and feedback evaluation, I found myself very comfortable during the interviews and was simply able to knock it out of the park.
During the whole process, I found Arvind genuinely supportive and constantly in communication to push me in the right direction and I am glad to have found Dream School Admit at the right time.
With the above words, I have no qualms in endorsing Dream School Admit to any person looking to start their MBA abroad.
April 2021. I had just given GMAT. My score was 690. I was still a newbie and like many other candidates, I was not well-versed with the application process. I got to know about Dream School Admit and how Arvind had helped several other talented individuals to get admitted into their dream schools. In our first phone call, his thoroughness and ability to approach the problem objectively left an impression on me. Arvind helped me to stay on track and without losing much time, we started with the application process. Even though I applied in later rounds of the spring admission cycle, with Arvind’s knowledge and inputs in essays and interview preparation, I was able to get admitted into one of the most acclaimed universities in Canada – Queen’s University for MBA with Forte Fellowship. This was a dream come true! If you are looking for an individual who could be your partner in crime and cheer leader in this process, Arvind is the guy for you!
