Accepted into Rotman, Canada Full time MBA & McDonough Full time MBA (Class of 2020)
“Following a few dings last year, I decided to take Aarti’s help for my applications. Her confident, but upfront and realistic approach, helped me narrow down to the target schools. Completing the detailed Brainstorming Form (which at that point felt unnecessary), not only helped gather my points but also helped me understand my stories and inspired me to go for the best version. Aarti and Top School Alumni / Mentor were meticulous in their approach to help me refine my essays and include certain points, which otherwise I would have missed. I guess the best part of the process, was the interview preparation and the mock interviews taken by Aarti. They were intense, information heavy and, as I later found out, were very close to the real interviews.
Thank you for all the help and I would recommend Blue Box and Aarti to all the MBA aspirants.”
Accepted into: IESE, Spain Full-time MBA (Class 0f 2019), HKUST, Hong Kong Full-time MBA (Class 0f 2019) with a $25,000 Scholarship.
HEC Paris, France Full time MBA Program
I was highly motived to pursue an MBA but without Aarti and BlueBox Consulting I would not have known how to channel that motivation to secure admits.
In my very first interaction with Aarti, it was clear to me the vast amount of knowledge and experience she had with the entire MBA admissions process. I was convinced her services would help me with the application process and I signed up with her instantly. The package is structured very well and the brainstorming exercise at the start with my assigned mentor from a top school helped to bring out the best in my background and experiences. I am applying to multiple schools and without Aarti’s super quick turnaround on my essays, I would not have been able to meet the tight deadlines. The mock interviews were very helpful as well, and gave me the confidence to succeed in the actual ones. Overall, Aarti’s feedback was always very specific and actionable and her services elevated my applications to a competitive level. I strongly recommend Aarti and BlueBox Consulting to all MBA aspirants.
Accepted into: ISB PGP (Class of 2019)
I got to know about Aarti through my GMAT tutor. I reached out to her as a completely lost but determined MBA aspirant, hoping to get into ISB. Even before I was on board as a client, Aarti set up many initial chats and gave me honest advice on my profile and suggested ways in which I could strengthen it, which braced me for the competitive application and admission process.
Once I was on board, the entire application process went smoothly and in an organized manner. As someone with a busy work schedule, Aarti’s constant reminders and status checks helped me stay on track.
The most unique feature of Aarti’s consulting service is her brainstorming sessions. I wanted a consultant that understood my story and didn’t try to fit me into a standardized template. The brainstorming sessions helped me identify and map my story in an interesting manner and helped me stand out among the many applicants that apply to ISB.
I would recommend Blue Box to anyone who wants to get into his/her dream school. Aarti is the right person to have in your corner during the stressful application process.
Accepted into IIM Calcutta, MBA
Having no similar experience at all, when I started my application I knew I needed help. I met Aarti after few telephonic conversations and she had very clear vision and was confident she could help. During the whole application cycle, she was just a call away and was even available for skype call at 11.00 PM. Furthermore, both Aarti and the mentor assigned concentrated on the application by helping me improve the quality of the essays and additionally, build my holistic profile to a large extent. I truly believe, it is this holistic profile that landed me in to IIM C and I am grateful for it!
I would highly recommend her services to anyone looking to get into Top MBA programs.
Accepted into the 2017 MBA Programs of UCLA & Kenan-Flagler with Partial Scholarships
By the time i had finished writing my GMAT, round 1 deadlines for US B schools were already over and i was frantically searching for a counselor. This is when i met Aarti. She was very forthcoming and straightforward and made me realize that a lot could be achieved in Round 2 as well. She helped me build my story and connected me to a mentor who is an alumni from a Top B school. Together, they guided me through the entire process. Aarti was always just a phone call or email away. I distinctly remember that she helped me over email even when she was vacationing in Thailand. I got into 2 of the top 15 universities in the US with partial scholarships, thanks to her support and would definitely recommend her services to B school aspirants.
Fordham University, MBA
I know Aarti from Crossfit in Mumbai and when she told me she is an International Admissions Expert, I immediately setup an appointment to meet her. She met me at very short notice, was very proactive in following up and helped me understand the right fit Business Schools for me. Additionally, she provided in depth guidance to help write all my essays and Letters of Recommendations. She has thereafter remained a friend and I will definitely recommend her services to MBA candidates!
MSc in Computer Science, Johns Hopkins University
After I completed my BE in Computers in 2009, I was considering all my options for my next step. That is when a friend introduced me to Aarti. Right from the onset she was very encouraging and insightful about Masters in Computer Science from the USA. Although I didn’t fair well in the GRE and wasn’t quite sure if I want to do it again, Aarti was extremely hopeful that we could still apply to quality schools and get in. She worked extremely hard to build a stellar application for me which got me into Johns Hopkins. Thereon, I went to working in Boston for a few years and have recently moved back to India to handle my family business. Going to Johns Hopkins truly changed my life and I have Aarti to thank for it! I will definitely recommend International Education aspirants due to her immense knowledge on what Universities are looking in candidates and her proactive and diligent skills.
Bachelors in Finance, Monash University
I had the pleasure of knowing Aarti from our days back in Good Shepherd International School. When the time came to start applying to universities, she was extremely resourceful in finding the right programs tailored to my interests. She ensured to simplify the admission process by doing the initial groundwork and was always a call away if help was ever needed. I thoroughly enjoyed my stint at Monash University and managed to graduate with a distinction class. I am currently running a furniture design studio in Dubai. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a reliable and transparent educational consultant.
Bachelors of Arts in International Relations, Hult International Business School, Global Campuses
My life literally changed when I made the decision to study abroad. I am very thankful for all the help that I got from Abhishek and his team with the entire admissions process to Hult International Business School. I am now living in Dubai where I head the undergraduate enrollment team in the Middle East for Hult itself.
MBA, University of Wollongong, U.A.E.
I had started doing my own research to pursue my further education, specifically an MBA degree within the UAE. This is when my husband referred me to Abhishek. He surely made my hunt much easier! He helped me look at a number of universities that suited my criteria and after weighing all my options, I decided to enroll in the University of Wollongong, Dubai. It has been a great experience studying here, and I’m glad I had him to guide me in the right direction.
MBA, Christ Church College, U.K.
After a few years of work experience, I wanted to go to U.K. to pursue an MBA but had no clue how to go about it until I contacted Abhishek. He gave me 10 to 12 options of Universities I should go to in the U.K. along with links and important pros and cons of all universities. With his help I got in to Christ Church College and it was the best experience I have ever had. Thereon, I went to working for a Top Wine Cellar, was able to repay back my MBA loan and moved back to India. I am currently working for Bose as their Business Development Head for India.
MSc. in Marketing, BPP University, U.K.
I always wanted to study in London for my Postgraduate Education. I contacted Abhishek about my Study Abroad Options, and after careful consideration, BPP University was one of the options I was recommended. Abhishek helped me throughout the process, from the initial application right until ensuring that the visa documents were in order, and helped keeping me updated. When I finally got in and went to U.K, he also called to ask if I need anything and even offered to pick me up from the airport – that was the personal touch I required because after the initial excitement the anxiety of going abroad to study does creep in. I successfully completed my studies, graduated with Merit, and have successfully moved to Dubai and work with an American Business School. Thanks Abhishek!
