MBA Programs use the GMAT score as an indication of how capable an applicant is to conduct a top MBA in a successful way. While the GMAT score is only one component of the entire application process it is an important one.
The good news is, with the proper help and expertise, you can improve your score fast and significantly. Why do we claim this? Because we have seen this over and over gain with our clients.
Do you have a specific question or any particular task you feel you are stuck on, but not quite ready for a full package? With our hourly consulting services, you can focus on that pending issue that you want to solve.
It could be any item relating to any stage of the MBA application process, including CV review, school selection, essay review, interview preparation, etc. You are in charge of this process and our consultants will follow your requests accordingly.
In order to make the most of this service, we recommend to concretely formulate the task or question and define the deliverables clearly in advance.
Please, share all the necessary information before the call, so that we can help you in the most efficient way possible. This would typically include your CV, GMAT score, draft essays, target schools list, etc. – essentially anything that would allow your consultant to be primed and ready to deliver maximum value on the actual call.
If you are determined to get an MBA and are willing to entrust all preparation to those who actually did it, then these packages are for you.
MBA-Goals leaves no room for improvisation. We have designed our own unique process that will guide you through to put your best and most authentic self in front of the admission committee. This process is based on our own experiences doing MBA in the top business schools around the world.
This option includes hands-on support for all the stages of an application:
STAGE 1: CANDIDATE ASSESSMENT
This is a key step that will help us create a basic understanding of your profile based on your inputs, including your GMAT score, CV and list of target schools. We take a holistic look on your achievements to date to identify your strengths and areas for improvement. This would serve as a base for further development of your application. Expect to hear our strategic recommendations to address any perceived weaker aspects, such as GMAT, extracurricular activities, remedial courses, etc.
STAGE 2: SCHOOL SELECTION STRATEGY
At this stage, we deep dive into details of your candidacy. We try to understand your motivation to get an MBA and your thought process regarding target school selection. Based on your GMAT score, professional experience, progression and fit of candidacy with target schools, we analyze your chances of success in the admission process school by school and provide clear feedback about your school selection.
STAGE 3: BRAINSTORMING
This is a key step to engage in a free-wheeling chat about your candidacy and discover your personal and professional story – understand who you are and what makes you tick, what is special about your profile, what makes you YOU. We identify possible angles to explore and highlight the positives while being honest and forthright about any perceived weaknesses. Finally, we define a timeline towards finalizing the application package and set up follow-up meetings regularly to edit and revise essays.
STAGE 4: ESSAYS AND APPLICATION PREPARATION
Essays: We know from experience how intimidating essay writing can be. But we are here to help. With unlimited editing of your essays, we aim to present the best version of yourself in front of the admissions committee. Expect us to revise, refine and edit the essay over several iterations until all the i’s are dotted and every t is crossed.
Recommendation letters: This part of application is frequently overlooked. The admissions committee evaluates your application by comparing it with independent feedback from your recommenders. We know from experience that wise selection of recommenders and their feedback can provide an additional insight into your candidacy as a person and a professional.
CV: How to make a strong CV without overlapping it with essays? How to demonstrate impact of your past professional and personal achievements? Having built international careers in leading multinational companies, we apply our own experience to help you stand out.
Online application: We will review the whole online application before you can finally click Send button. Let’s aim for perfection at this stage.
STAGE 5: CLICK THAT SEND BUTTON ALREADY!
STAGE 6: INTERVIEW PREP
Having interviewed MBA applicants ourselves, MBA-Goals knows what a successful candidate looks like. Remember that no one knows you better than you do yourself. Confidence is key and this confidence stems from thorough preparation. The trick is to relax and to do your best without appearing over-rehearsed.
We will prepare you for all possible questions through rounds of mock interviews until you are confident that you are ready.
We recommend using our turn-key services once you are ready with your GMAT score (or GRE in some
instances). Knowing your score will help us understand your chances of success of getting into your target schools.
Also, we believe that getting GMAT out of your way will help you focus on the most important part of the application process, the essays.
