Accepted into Columbia, USA – Full-time MBA Program (Class of 2019)
I had some experience applying to MBA programs and I thought I could utilize my familiarity of the MBA admission. However, after speaking to Aarti, I realized that her structured approach, insights into the admissions process and her keen understanding of my profile could help me differentiate my B-school application. The brainstorming session with Aarti and my Mentor (from a top B-school) helped me to prepare concrete goals and conduct an incredible amount of research for schools. Throughout the entire process, both my mentor and Aarti were really helpful and accessible. Their critical review of my essays and support for ironing out the weaknesses ultimately helped me get interviews and the acceptance to Columbia Business School. Needless to say, I recommend Bluebox’s Consulting services to MBA aspirants looking for inputs on improving their profile and structuring their story for business schools.
Accepted into: INSEAD, France –Full Time MBA (Class of 2019J), HEC Paris – Full-time MBA (Class of 2019)
The effort is important, but knowing where to make an effort makes all the difference.
I signed up with Aarti after connecting with her through an MBA fair event in the city. We met at a coffee shop and within 30 minutes, I was convinced to sign up with her. Her entire package is structured in an organised manner and managed by two experts. On one hand, Aarti helped bring the best in my overall profile and provided access to all resources needed in doing so. She gave me a sense of direction throughout the journey. Not to mention her help on my video essays and interviews where she conducted Skype sessions with me at 11 pm in the night to accommodate my work hours! On the other hand, my mentor assigned who is an alum from a top school and who works in a different time zone helped me with polishing my essays and bring out my stories in a structured, sharp and lucid manner. Most importantly, I would like to emphasize on his availability and his quick turnaround times, when I was racing towards deadlines.
Their calm demeanour and practical approach kept me cool when I received interviews or as deadlines approached. You would be surprised on how important this is.
Such things made the difference. Highly recommend Blue Box and Aarti.
Accepted into Schulich, Canada Full-time MBA program (Class of 2020) with a $10, 000 Scholarship
I applied for an MBA for 2018 intake but failed to get through any of my aspired universities. In 2018, I cam across BlueBox while I was surfing the internet for consulting firms to guide me through the application process for 2019 intake.
After researching on quite a few options, I narrowed down to bluebox after talking to Aarti. Her clarity of thoughts, structured approach and knowledge of various universities really impressed me. Her approach for each university was different and well organized. She not only helped me with the essays and my profile but also conducted multiple mocks before the interviews.
Amidst the application procedure, I had to undergo a small surgery which caused a lot of delay in my applications. Aarti made sure she encouraged me to work through the applications and helped me at each step. Her quick responses to my drafts helped me keep up the pace and apply to my desired universities in time.
I remember Aarti telling me in our initial brainstorming sessions, that York University would be a super ambitious school to apply to. However, thanks to her directions and assistance, the first admit I received was from York – Schulich. I am delighted with my admit and am thankful to Aarti for her constant guidance. I would highly recommend BlueBox consulting to anyone who is looking for a structured way to approach MBA applications.
I made a rather late decision to apply to INSEAD. I had less than 3 weeks to go before the application deadline, and desperately needed professional guidance to help meet the aggressive timelines. To add to the challenge, I had to make an emergency 5-day trip halfway across the world for the passing of a loved one. Aarti’s contributions to my application were nothing short of stellar. She first gave me a sense of direction with a tentative plan-of-attack, was highly responsive and laser focused in her inputs, and orchestrated the entire process seamlessly to help me turn in a first-rate application in just 12 days! It is quite apparent that Aarti has insights into the admissions processes of top B-schools, as well as boatloads of experience in working with a wide variety of applicants. I am delighted with my acceptance into INSEAD, and needless to say, would recommend Aarti’s advisory services to MBA aspirants in a heartbeat!
Accepted into: HEC Montreal, Queens (Smith School of Business) & Concordia University for Masters in International Business (Class of 2019)
Aarti is truly amazing and really helped me focus on my strengths when I was struggling to reinvent my career. She helped me stay focused on the positive things I could offer and see how much I really could do to improve my profile overall to become a competitive candidate. She is very positive, energetic, creative and supportive. My mentor and Aarti were my greatest resources in my search to pick the best schools, Resume creation, Statement of Purpose creation and Interview processes, etc. The whole process and the way it is handled, right from you joining BlueBox to your self assessment and being allotted a mentor truly helps you learn s much more about yourself and what actually are top B schools looking for in candidates. I got accepted into some of Canada’s top schools like Queens University, HEC Montreal and Concordia University for a Master’s program in International Business, all thanks to Aarti and my mentor for all the work they put in and for catering to my endless queries! I will definitely recommended BlueBox Consulting to my friends.
IIM Bangalore, MBA
Life is situation dependent and these situations make you realize the true picture of the world. I was in a dilemma, I had converted B-Schools in Canada and USA but was uncertain where to head. I found a guide in Aarti and I opened up my thoughts to her. She guided me through my dilemma and today I am about to graduate from IIM Bangalore and I am currently studying there. The situation helped me find a friend, mentor and a philosopher who taught me how to deal with tough situations in life. I appreciate her guidance and thank her for all the help she provided.
Accepted into an MBA Program with a Partial Scholarship at University of Alberta, Drexel & RIT
After giving my GMAT, I was beyond hope for directions to apply for my MBA and thats when I met Aarti. She had the clearest vision and focus for how I should be going about my application and jumped right at it. Aarti gave me full attention and always responded with a way to tackle every small hurdle in the application process. I had gotten into most of the schools that I applied to in the US and Canada, some even with partial scholarships. Aarti’s help on the MBA interviews remarkably helped my performance and confidence, perhaps, making it a major reason why RIT, Drexel & University of Alberta would’ve chosen me.
MSc in Information Networking, Carnegie Mellon
Aarti was recommended by a close friend as the only person I should contact if I am looking to pursue an International Education since he had already secured admission and was in the U.S.A. because of Aarti. I approached her and from the onset she was a very friendly yet realistic Consultant. She was straightforward about my chances of getting into Top Universities. Impressed by her honest attitude, I asked her to help me through the application process and she was extremely helpful throughout. Through several chats, she helped understand my profile at length and thereon picked a few of my achievements, goals and strengths to write about in the Statements of Purpose and even helped edit all my Letters of Recommendations and put together my entire application. I was extremely happy to have got in to Carnegie Mellon and I currently work in Mumbai as the Co-Founder of Unstockify.
MSc in Public Health, University of Edinburgh
I know Aarti since back in School and it has been a pleasure to remain her friend over these years. I never thought I would get the opportunity to go study in the U.K. but Aarti always encouraged me and when my family and I decided that I should pursue a Masters, I obviously approached Aarti for the same. She has been a great friend but I never knew how much knowledge she had about International Education until we sat down for a chat about my next move in the future. She has great ideas and was very supportive that I keep my options open since I am a Dentist by profession and cannot practice it abroad. I was keen on pursuing Public Health as an alternative and after going through my academics and work experience she immediately encouraged me to apply to Top Universities in the U.K. Even though I was not confident, she created all my applications giving me strategies to write each Essay and Letter of Recommendation and thereafter she helped me collate all financial and visa documents! I was as surprised as anyone else that I got into University of Edinburgh which is the Number 3rd University for my field. I am currently working as a Practicing Dentist in the U.K all thanks to Aarti !
MSc Business Systems Analysis & Design, City University London
Abhishek was a International Education Admission Consultant when I contacted him to Study in the U.K. From the very first phone call chat with him, I knew that he had industry knowledge and experience. He was conscientious during my entire application and although I knew he had plenty of applications at the time to process since deadlines were approaching, his personal attention to my application was spectacular! I was grateful to get into City University London through his help and in fact he kept in touch with me even after I landed asking if I needed anymore help and help me look up temporary places to stay before I found accommodation. He emailed me a list of places to go to in London and eat to experience London economically but enjoyably!
MBA Henley Business School, U.K.
Abhishek helped me through my entire application and visa process from the very first day I’ve decided to pursue an MBA in the U.K. He helped me choose the right University and also assist me in all the visa application process. I would highly recommend his services.
Bachelors in Human Resources, Queensland University of Technology, Australia
I was referred to Abhishek through a friend while searching for Universities to pursue my Bachelors abroad and I was very keen on going to Australia. Abhishek helped me shortlist schools based on my profile, helped put together my documents and even helped me write all my Essays, Statements of Purpose and Letters of Recommendations. He was extremely helpful putting together my financial documents and the visa process too. Thereafter I have been working in Australia, have my Permanent Residency and have had the opportunity to become an entrepreneur in Brisbane. Going to Australia changed my life and perspective and I have to thank Abhishek for it. I would recommend his services to anyone who is looking to study abroad since he has the industry knowledge and is extremely helpful.
Bachelors in Computer Science & Cybernetics, University of Reading, U.K.
Abhishek was very professional and friendly that gave me some really sound and solid advice that most definitely helped me with my admission at University of Reading where I completed my Bachelors in Computer Science and Cybernetics. I would highly recommend him for International Admissions.
