If you are on the tracks to run, there are tactics that lead you to victory. You may be running flatfoot where you need to run on your toes! This is the reason we need a coach. The one who knows how to select the outliers and hone their wings. Arvind from Dream School Admit did just that for me.
I am Saif Kamal, a student at Harvard Graduate School of Education – 2023 Cohort. I have had an illustrious career and my work has been recognized at many places. However, I wasn’t able to weave my story together. Arvind did not write my essays, but he compelled me to think, dig deep into my past, and envision the future I want to create. Like a great coach, he pruned and plucked my presentations. When it comes to the Ivy League, it is these minute details that make all the difference.
Arvind is astute, patient, and compassionate. I have had the privilege to work with him and am grateful to him for crafting and curating my application from the heaps of information.
I am thrilled to write a testimonial for Arvind from Dream School Admit, who helped me navigate the entire MBA application process. With his help and support, I was able to secure admission to some of the most competitive MBA programs in the world, including Wharton, MIT Sloan, Kellogg, Booth (with $60k scholarship), and Michigan Ross (with $150k scholarship).
Arvind’s expertise and insights into the MBA admissions process were invaluable to my success. He provided me with personalized guidance every step of the way, from helping me select the right schools to crafting my application essays and preparing for my interviews. His feedback was always constructive, thoughtful, and tailored specifically to my strengths and weaknesses.
I was particularly impressed with Arvind’s deep understanding of the MBA admissions landscape. He knew what admissions committees were looking for and how to position my unique strengths and experiences to make me stand out from the competition. He also had a wealth of knowledge about each program’s culture, curriculum, and career opportunities, which was crucial in helping me make informed decisions about where to apply.
Arvind’s patience and willingness to work with me through every step of the process was outstanding. Even when I had last-minute edits or changes, Arvind readily accommodated my requests and made sure that my application was polished and ready for submission. His optimism and calmness rubbed off on me as well and helped me maintain my sanity in this gruesome process.
In addition to his expertise, Arvind’s calm and optimistic demeanour was incredibly helpful during this stressful process. He helped me stay focused on the task at hand, even when I was feeling overwhelmed. I truly appreciate all of his efforts, and I am grateful for his guidance throughout this entire process.
Overall, I would highly recommend Arvind to anyone looking to apply to top MBA programs. He is a true professional, and his expertise and support were instrumental in helping me achieve my MBA dreams. I cannot thank him enough for all his help and guidance throughout this process.
Navigating the bschool process was one of the toughest things I did in my life. I had sat for my GMAT a couple of times and applied to four schools by the end of 2020, but when I received rejection from all the schools, I was bummed. I realised that getting accepted to a top bschool in the US or Canada is not as simple as we make it out to be. The process is quite tedious and in a way, methodical.
After I got my target score in my last GMAT attempt, I wanted to give the application process one last chance. Given the fact that I was expecting at that time, and this was practically the last year that I could ever apply (given my years of experience and my life situation), I wanted to get as much help as I could possibly get with my applications.
I wanted a consultant who would guide me more like a mentor and less like a professional essay writer who would charge for every hour and every word, and that’s where Dream School Admit stood out for me. In the very first call, Arvind listened to my entire life and career journey very patiently and asked me to write it down in my own words. As the process started, he encouraged me from the get go to aim for only the top bschools with his help. He was honestly so excited about my prospects and my story that I somehow started to believe that despite my rejections in the past, I am capable of aiming for the very best!
Arvind made sure I wrote all my essays for both Harvard and Wharton in my own words and that I had done my own fair share of research for the materials. I believe that is the hallmark of a good consultant: they help you do your best and guide you without intruding in your own process. He was patient whenever I had a different opinion or wanted to write a material in a different way. The HBS essay was edited back and forth more than 5/6 times and Arvind was patient every time I added something new or changed a part of it.
When I got rejected from HBS in R1, I wanted to aim for a T-10 school. Arvind encouraged me to not lose heart and aim for another T-3. If it weren’t for his confidence in my story, I honestly wouldn’t have believed that I had a shot at Wharton. I applied for Wharton in R2- just a few days after my delivery, and was accepted!
A great admissions consultant helps you craft your unique story in a way that nobody else can, and in that aspect, I believe, DSA is a hidden gem in the MBA admissions industry and I would highly recommend them all throughout.
The application process was so memorable, all thanks to Arvind! I got into 10 universities with a GRE score of 327! All amazing universities that were just a dream not too long ago but here I am confused, overjoyed, and extremely grateful. The admits from UNC Kenan-Flagler (Full scholarship), Kelley (Full scholarship), UCLA Anderson (80 K), Michigan Ross (80 K), Cornell Johnson (80 K), CMU Tepper (90K), Tuck, Stern, Marshall, and Chicago Booth (30 K) could not have been possible without Arvind’s guidance, help and mentorship.
It is extremely important to pick the right consultant as your entire future depends on how well you portray yourself in those compact 300-500 word essays. I called numerous consultants desperately looking for someone to help me with the daunting application process. I made lists with the positives and negatives of each consultant but when I spoke to someone who had worked with Arvind before, I knew Dream School Admit would be the right choice for me because of the gratitude and confidence with which she spoke about Arvind, assured me that I had nothing to worry about and that I should just go ahead with Dream School. Just like her, I can assure anyone with 200% confidence that if you’ve stumbled upon Dream School Admit, you’re extremely lucky, you can immediately stop your search and blindly trust them with your application process and your future.
The questionnaire that Arvind asks you to fill out at the start of the process is extremely crucial in my opinion. This gives him a full picture of who you are as a person outside your grades and that is what the admissions committee is looking for too. I had so many calls with Arvind, in the beginning, to brainstorm and come up with content that was true to me. Arvind puts his heart and soul into the brainstorming sessions. He has excellent suggestions and he knows exactly what works and what doesn’t. He is always ready to do as many edits as needed until you and he is completely satisfied with the final version. He is available any time you need him. I asked him really stupid questions about the application in the middle of the night when I couldn’t sleep due to the stress. He is always there to answer anything. His editing is amazing and he always sends the edited versions in a day or two at max. He has a very systematic approach and it makes your life a whole lot easier.
I can’t express how nervous I was about the interviews. The first time I practiced with Arvind, I didn’t know half the answers. Arvind makes sure you’re ready and fully confident and he also connected me with numerous alumni from the different schools I was applying to so that I could have a call with them before my interviews. He got me so prepared that I was off scheduling two back-to-back interviews in one night.
Arvind understands and sees your true potential, the potential that we ourselves often don’t realize. In him, I have found a lifelong friend who will always reply to my worried texts any time of the day and keep pushing me to achieve my dreams. I am forever grateful to have found Dream School Admit and Arvind in this crazy MBA journey and I hope many more get to experience this too.
I am extremely grateful to Arvind for being an exceptional mentor and guide throughout my months-long admission process. He was my biggest cheerleader, a sincere critic, and a massive knowledge bank, from the GMAT prep days -to the loan and Visa process post-admit.
With Arvind’s help, I received an admit from Columbia Business School on my first attempt, despite having an average GMAT score for my demographic. Prior to working with Arvind, the consultants I spoke to were either too optimistic or negative about my candidature for CBS. However, from the first call, Arvind struck me as someone who was both realistic about managing my expectations and willing to put in the effort to reach those objectives. He quickly made my goals his own, and his commitment to my application was a testament to that.
Perhaps the most impressive part of the process was the time we spent brainstorming my career goals. This not only shaped my resume and essays but also gave a much better structure to my overall story, which was critical for my interviews, applications to other schools, and scholarship applications. I hadn’t appreciated the value of a brainstorming call before working with Arvind and looking back, I’m happy to know that an admit from CBS is just a small part of the overall value I derived from these sessions.
I would absolutely recommend Arvind to anyone looking for an honest, hardworking, and knowledgeable mentor, career coach, and MBA admission consultant who is also a pleasure to work with. Arvind’s focus, command over the language, and years of experience working with top B-Schools guide his uncanny ability to find gold in the most average of stories and sell it as no one else can.
Firstly, my sincere thanks to Arvind from Dream School Admit for being my guiding light. It is the result of his efforts and faith in my candidature that I received admission from NYU Stern and ISB.
After talking to a few consultants and doing some research, I came to know about Arvind. Since then, he has been my sounding board, a great mentor, and a friend. His positive attitude, availability, and the crisp understanding of the entire process made the journey a lot easier.
Right from understanding my background to brainstorming to neatly binding together all the loose pieces, he has been a constant guide. Often, we went through multiple iterations, and he provided constant feedback and pointed out the gaps clearly to me. He has always been available for any discussion or clarifying my questions, no matter what hour of the day. Throughout the process, he was patient and deeply invested in my application journey. For every school I applied to, he mentored me to present who I am rather than to showcase what I just did professionally, and I think it made all the difference. Arvind comes across as not just a committed & passionate professional but also a genuine believer in you. Such qualities clearly make him stand out in his profession.
I wholeheartedly recommend Arvind and Dream School Admit to all those aspirants who have even the slightest doubt in their abilities to sail through this journey and who are seeking a true mentor. Working with Arvind will certainly be transformational.
I am delighted to share my experience of working with Arvind, my mentor and guide from Dream School Admit, during my MBA application journey. Arvind’s expertise and knowledge in the field of MBA admissions are truly unparalleled, and I am grateful for the support and guidance he provided me throughout the entire process.
From the very beginning, Arvind demonstrated a deep understanding of my goals and aspirations. The initial process which included scoring high on the GMAT, then selection of colleges, and then the applications, was daunting at the outset. Arvind served the role of a mentor, guide as well as a sounding board, keeping me on track and pushing me to give my best. He provided me with tailored advice and detailed feedback, helping me put forth a strong candidacy. The structured process that Arvind ensured I followed put me in a good position and consequently I was able to secure interview invites from Wharton, Kellogg, Ross and Tuck.
Arvind’s support and encouragement were also critical during the interview process. He helped me to prepare for interviews, providing me with insights into the culture and environment of the different MBA programs I was considering. His guidance was invaluable in helping me to present my best self during the interview process. Finally, I am headed to Tuck this fall.
In conclusion, I highly recommend Arvind and Dream School Admit to anyone looking for expert guidance and support during their MBA application journey. His expertise, commitment, and dedication are truly exceptional, and I am grateful for the role he played in helping me to achieve my goals.
Arvind has been a true mentor and guide to me over the last one year, even before I decided to apply to B Schools. I first reached out to him when I was at the cusp of choosing between multiple job offers, seeking advice on how my decisions would help me in my goal of attending a premier B school. In that very first call, I knew he was someone who always gives advice from a completely selfless, honest and pragmatic perspective.
It was his confidence in my abilities and my caliber that later motivated me to apply to US B schools with only 2 years of work experience and a mere 720 GMAT. Arvind guided me to carefully choose my target school, one that is attainable and also worthy. (since I was only planning on applying to one school). After multiple conversations on deliberations, I went ahead and applied to Yale School of Management and was able to receive admission as well!
Arvind guided and walked with me every step of the way, while also giving me the space to weave a story that I want to tell. One thing that I most value is that he constantly reminded me of how I need to believe in myself and would come back with extremely constructive feedback to further enhance my application.
There were countless moments when I wasn’t sure if I would be able to turn in a worthy application and in those moments no matter what day or time – he was just a text/ call away. Arvind is someone who understands that each person has unique expectations and needs from their counselors, and he recognizes and delivers on them accordingly.
He was especially helpful during the interview preparation stage. He took the time to walk through all of my answers in detail and the mock interview with him was extremely helpful. Arvind’s support extended even to phases when I was just waiting for the interview call/admit result as well as figuring out a few things the post admits.
I would recommend Arvind and DSA to everyone who is trying to figure things out and want a mentor on their journey to the B school of their dreams.
As a reapplicant who had a very disappointing admission cycle last year, I made the best decision of my life going with Arvind from Dream School Admit.
He’s simply the best. After speaking to multiple consultants from all over the planet, Arvind’s rationale behind my failure to secure admission in the last cycle was by far the most accurate and apt. His approach is extremely analytical and to the point, and he’s very upfront about it. The first call with him and I knew he was the best person to help me.
After multiple brainstorming sessions with him, my final essays were absolutely compelling. I compared them with the essays I had written in the previous cycle, and there was a world of difference. My profile was the same, yet the way Arvind helped me project and portray it was nothing short of a piece of art.
In the mock interviews, he helped me prepare a coherent and clear answer list, leaving no scope for any ambiguity. He definitely has a very robust understanding of how Adcoms and interviewers score a profile/interview.
The best part about working with him is his response time. So much so that I’d get a call within 30 seconds of typing my query, be it in the wee hours of the morning or late at night. Working with him never felt like a professional arrangement. He is genuinely and emotionally involved in your application, which isn’t something one can say about most of the consultants out there.
I am so glad I found Arvind, at the same time I repent not meeting him last year, I probably wouldn’t have wasted one year.
I made it to Fuqua, and Arvind made it possible for me, truly.
I started off my applications for MBA with Arvind on July 2022. Starting from Day 1 he was my first cheerleader. I was so stressed about the applications, the essays, and the interviews, and in addition to this, I also had imposter syndrome, but throughout the application phase, Arvind gave me immense support.
Starting with Essays, He perfectly helped me showcase my strengths and ambitions to applied colleges. He is very prompt with his SOP/draft responses and very accommodating of all the back-and-forth essay writing entails.
Then moving on to interviews, The experience went to the next level, we had some 4 to 5 mocks before my Darden interview. He helped me polish my attitude and approach while answering questions. We had to do a lot of brainstorming together for some situational/behavioral questions, which would be nearly impossible to answer had I gone through this application phase alone. His ability to connect the dots of our story and make it sound coherent is impeccable.
Be it any hour of the day, Be it any small silly question Arvind was always available. His patience and commitment from him were the aspects that set his clients up for success. I am really glad that I got the opportunity to work with him.
One aspect that deserves special mention is that since I had a low GMAT score, I took his suggestion to take the Executive Assessment (EA) test, instead, as it is accepted by many good schools. Scoring well in the EA (98%) significantly strengthened my profile.
With his amazing support and guidance, I was able to get an admit to Darden Business School with a 50% merit-based scholarship. I have no one to thank except Arvind and the dream school admit. I strongly recommend Arvind and dream school admission for anyone who is aspiring to do MBA in a prominent university. Working with Arvind and DSA, The personalized attention, the guidance, and the support you get are second to none.
The DSA and Arvind will definitely not let you down
I got into the University of Chicago Booth for a Full Time MBA. Thank You so much to you and Dream School Admit for all the help, support, and guidance.
Before reaching out to you, I had already registered with two other consultants and was really disappointed. I did not know if I should expect anything better from Dream School Admit. However, after working with you, I am sure I made the right call. Reaching out to Dream School Admit for guidance was one of the best decisions I have taken in my MBA journey!
Anyone who has gone through the exhausting process of MBA applications knows that one of the most important things is to stay optimistic and surround yourself with mentors who can help you believe in yourself. That’s exactly what I got from you!
To start with, while many told me that it was near impossible for me to get into my dream colleges, you never said that. You helped me give my best for my dream colleges while helping me formulate Plan-B if I don’t get into any of them (from deciding what else I can change in my profile to deciding Safe/Reach colleges). You didn’t ask me to settle for less than what I had aimed for and that’s the best part of working with you. Thanks to you, I had the courage to apply to my dream colleges and got into one of them. Being an Indian Engineer, I did not expect to get into an M7 but you pushed me to apply and I am glad I did!
Coming to the essays! You didn’t really spoon feed me and that is exactly what I wanted. You pushed me to come up with my own ideas and drafts for the essays. However, the way you finally edited them was mind blowing! You are too good at understanding the applicant’s ideas and turning them into professional essays! Finally, the way you prepared me to approach the interviews was the reason they went so smoothly.
You helped me like a friend and a mentor more than as a consultant. I am grateful to you for helping me with my numerous confusions and self-doubts along the way and even after I got the admit.
I can’t thank you enough for all the guidance related to my profile and applications, and can sincerely say that getting into Booth wouldn’t have been possible without you. I am convinced that I will stay in touch with you even in the years to come!
The name of your firm is apt!
*Dream School Admit* Indeed!
The Day I started my MBA Journey, I just knew ‘Why’ I wanted to do an MBA and had an inkling of Target Schools. It was Arvind from Dreamschool Admit that has made the ‘How’ part possible. I liked how organically things went through from the first call. He understood my unique story, and my Career Trajectory and has inculcated Confidence in my Candidature. I was apprehensive about how the Ad-Coms would look at my Story and Application. But all apprehensions were gone and my questions were answered once I started to work with Arvind. The best part is that even though Arvind was there from the first step, I had to put in work too with regards to essays and research. He helped me ‘Not get lost’. Which I think is very important while applying for MBA programs. I really loved the Interview Tips and Mocks that he gave me. This really helped me familiarize myself with the Structure and the line of questioning in the Ad-Com Interviews. I was able to secure admissions from UChicago – Booth School of Business, Duke – Fuqua School of Business with a scholarship, and U of M – Ross School of Business with a scholarship.
I started Recommending Dreamschool admits and Arvind is already in my network And will keep doing so in the future.
Thank you and Goodluck!
Just wanted to share that I was accepted into Harvard Business School’s 2+2 program. Thank you to “Dream School Admit” for all the help in this process. I was not sure if I could get in with a 720 GMAT score but thanks to all your advice, we were able to put together a fantastic application.
Before I had come to you, I had applied to 3 other programs and had gotten a no from all of them. Although I thought I had a strong profile, I was beginning to have a lot of doubts. As I began my preparation to apply to my dream schools ie. Harvard Business School and MIT Sloan, I realized I needed guidance and help. I reached out to some counselors in India who were very uptight. They were unwilling to even get on a phone call to discuss how to work together and had a my way or the highway approach. Then, I was lucky to get in touch with Dream School Admit and I really liked how you got on a call with me immediately and helped me design a package to suit my needs. Working with you was a fantastic decision. Your quick responsiveness and direct feedback were absolutely crucial for my application. The multiple essay revisions and feedback allowed me to put together a cohesive narrative for my application. I was lucky to receive interview invites from my top two schools ie. MIT Sloan and Harvard Business School. Our mock interviews were awesome too and helped ease a lot of the tensions.
Thanks so much again and I’m glad I made the decision to work with Dream School Admit.
First of all – A huge thanks to Arvind from ‘Dream School Admit’ for being my biggest cheerleader. I am grateful to Arvind for believing in me even when no one else (including myself!) believed in my ability to crack the dream of HSW. Thanks to Arvind’s efforts and faith in my candidature, I got an admit from The Wharton School at a GMAT score of 720.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with Arvind and it almost felt as though I were working with a close friend, right from the beginning. It’s incredible to see how collaborative the entire MBA application process has been and there’s no denying that Arvind is amongst the very few consultants out there who offer such a unique value. Arvind’s structured approach combined with the flexibility that he offers to individuals is perhaps Arvind and Dream School Admit’s biggest strength. Not to mention, the brainstorming sessions organized by Arvind were super helpful in preparing me for my applications and Wharton TBD.
Arvind’s nuanced and friendly approach to application pushed me into applying to schools which I would ordinarily consider out of my reach given my low GMAT score. Perhaps, it’s not a stretch to claim that Arvind is indeed a class apart from other consultants who refuse to even take a chance on worthy candidates in absence of a spectacular 750+ score. It was genuinely heartwarming to see how invested Arvind was in my success and believed in my story despite the odds. I would say that not only have I won a mentor for the rest of my life but also a dear friend who genuinely believes in my ability to succeed.
All this to say that if one is looking for a mentor and a friend to help them through the stress, and anxiety of MBA applications – there is perhaps, no one better than Arvind and Dream School Admit to rely on. I am in absolute awe of the professionalism and passion that Arvind displayed throughout the course of the MBA application process and I can absolutely admit that I wouldn’t even have applied or gotten admitted into Wharton (oh, what a dream!) without him!
A huge thank you to Arvind for everything and I hope he continues to be the light at the end of a dark tunnel for other MBA aspirants who are told that GMAT score is a make or break. There is so much more to an MBA application than that and my Wharton admit is a testament to Dream School Admit’s holistic focus in the MBA application process!
The MBA application process is immensely stressful and I absolutely cannot thank Arvind enough for guiding me through it.
I started off on this journey completely clueless about the finer aspects of things and Arvind helped bring it all to my attention. He has been so much more than merely an admissions consultant. Throughout this process he transitions into a friend and a mentor, churning out brilliant advice at crucial moments. His ability to weave together all the lose ends to create an airtight story is impeccable.
No matter what hour of the day, he is always available to cater to the silliest of queries and sudden panic attacks. He is also very prompt with his SOP/essay draft responses and very accommodating of all the back and forth the essay writing process entails.
The patience and commitment he demonstrates towards his students is what sets us up for success. He spent countless hours brainstorming on tailored unique stories for each of my colleges, to help bring out the best aspects of my profile and demonstrate good fit with each college.
Thanks to his ability to highlight the strengths of my profile, I was able to secure an interview invite at a stretch school like Wharton, something I couldn’t even have dreamed of.
His ideas and inputs during the interview preparation phase were unmatched. From helping me prepare for case studies to developing succinct yet effective answers for situational/behavioural questions, Arvind went the extra mile to help me actualise my goals.
His valuable insights at every juncture of this process have led me to obtain acceptances from 3 top tier schools out of the 5 schools I applied to – two of which are Ivy League Business Schools!!
I now have the good fortune of being able to choose between Yale SOM, Cornell Johnson and London Business School and I have no one but Arvind and Dream School Admit to thank for that!!
I wholeheartedly recommend Arvind and the Dream School Admit team to anyone who wants to pursue an MBA from a prominent university. You will receive unparalleled personalised attention that several other renown but commercial admissions consultants might not give you.
DSA and Arvind will most definitely not let you down.
The MBA application process is quite intimidating and I am extremely glad to have had Arvind’s help and guidance all along. When I initially reached out to Arvind from Dream School Admit, I was about 2 months away from the Round 1 MBA deadlines and was quite confused about how to tackle this massive MBA application task. However, Arvind was really patient and supported me at every step of the process while also instilling much more confidence in me and pushing me to do things I might not have done on my own. He encouraged me to retake the GMAT and my score climbed from 710 to 740, he also pushed me to be ambitious in deciding colleges and now I have admission offers from three really great colleges – UVA Darden (with scholarship), UCLA and NYU Stern. He also went out of his way to guide me with schools other than the ones we had decided on, and now I have admission offers from USC Marshall (with scholarship) and Georgetown McDonough (with scholarship).
I am really glad that I reached out to Arvind – he did a phenomenal job in preparing me and really getting me my “Dream School Admit”s. I really appreciate Arvind’s help and efforts throughout the journey, especially the dependability, turnaround time, his honesty and his ability to understand my profile and goals.
Applied in Fall 2020 cycle;
Admits: Stern ($60k Alumni Scholarship), Ross ($20k Scholarship), Yale (20k Dean’s Scholarship) & Kellogg;
I found out about Dream School admit and Arvind whilst browsing through GMAT club forums. I requested a free profile evaluation and Arvind called me back within 3 hours. It would be easy for me to write about the generic strengths of working with him but there are a few standout observations from my experience.
Firstly, Arvind is the most positive person I have met. Whilst applying for your MBA one learns that it’s a confidence game and it’s easy to lose confidence in your profile and your achievements when you see how long the odds are for the top universities. Multiple other counsellors had dismissed my profile but Arvind took the time to hear me out and believe in my story. He had the risk appetite to believe in me, even when I didn’t and it reflects in our college choices and our eventual success.
Secondly, the interview preparation is extremely thorough and effective. I had 4 interviews and converted all 4 interviews into admits. It was a lot more than just learning to speak, we created a strategy which was tailored specifically for every university.
Finally, Arvind is an extremely knowledgable and thoughtful mentor. Even beyond the specific aspects of the application, he advised me on career decisions for almost a year prior to the actual application. His approach to working on applications is methodical and structured. Despite the many anxiety induced conversations and LoR discussions, he provided clear and concise direction. I learned how to prepare an application on a fundamental level, and have used this experience in many other scenarios.
I would whole heartedly recommend working with Dream School Admit and guarantee the experience will leave you with a lot more than just an admit
Arvind from Dream School Admit has a great understanding of what top Business schools look for in a candidate. He knows not only what strengths to highlight but also how to showcase your weaknesses as strengths. I talked to a number of consultants before deciding to go with Arvind. He motivates you to dream big and it’s fun discussing and crafting the whole B school application story with him. Arvind gave me confidence to keep my aspirations high and his tailored guidance and structured approach helped me to get an admit from NYU Stern and Kenan with $60K scholarship. Arvind is genuine, hard working and passionate about what he does and delivers upon what he says. Getting into top B schools is a life changing event, and Arvind surely has changed mine. I highly recommend Dream school admit and Arvind to anyone. And I’m grateful that I got to work with him.
When I started my MBA application process, I wasn’t quite sure where to start and didn’t think of applying to the top 10 business schools. I was referred to Dream School Admit and after our first call, I had the confidence to dream bigger. Arvind from Dream School Admit was extremely helpful throughout the application process and is just a ping away when we need to talk to him. The profile questionnaire which he asks us to fill out gives us an excellent opportunity to self-reflect on our lives and Arvind works his best to bring out our strengths into the application. His insights on our profile and interview guidance make the whole process a breeze. I would consider him a mentor rather than a consultant. Thanks to his guidance I got admitted to both the schools I applied to, Duke Fuqua School of Business and Unc Kenan Flagler with Forte Fellowship.
I highly endorse DSA and Arvind will bring the calm personal approach we need during this nerve-wracking process.
I reached out to Arvind when I was exploring part-time MBA options. In my first call, he provided a very good overview of available options and understood my profile in detail. Given that my GMAT score was only 650, I was not sure about top MBA schools as they tend to be very competitive, even for part-time MBA programs. He provided me with much-needed guidance to step out on this journey. After that call, I immediately decided to consult Arvind on my MBA applications. I didn’t know what success looked like in terms of application, so I knew I needed to consult someone who helps people be successful. Arvind is such a positive person that every time he gave me enough confidence to apply to these top-b schools. He was really like a mentor to me.
Arvind always made sure that essays are written in my own words and are interesting and authentic reflections of myself. He made sure that I had done enough research for all the top schools. Every conversation with him helped me to convey my story in the most genuine way possible. His essay and resume reviews were top-notch, and his comments provoked my thought process. He was patient enough to give me proper feedback whenever I had different opinions. In the end, all the essays and resumes turned out to be genuine reflections of my story, conveyed in a crisp manner.
Another thing that is extraordinary about Arvind is his super responsiveness. He used to message me immediately if I had any queries or if I was stuck somewhere in the application process. Even though we are on two different continents, I never felt that the time difference was an issue with Arvind. He used to make sure that I got timely feedback on all my applications.
I started this MBA application process during my first trimester of pregnancy. By the start of my third trimester, I had received word from the University of California, Berkeley Haas that I had been accepted into their top-ranked evening and weekend MBA program!
He is really a star mentor, and I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a top-school MBA admit!
