To get admission in the best engineering, management or law colleges, the aspiring candidates are required to appear in screening examinations by the individual institutes or common entrance test. Before taking admission to any college or university, visit their website to know about their infrastructural facilities, faculty members, courses offered and also recognition and awards conferred to them.

I posted this earlier; however, I drunkenly hit new post. Hey, I just wrapped up Mod I midterms - cut me some slack. This is the right thread.

You can get into a top 20 full-time program with a low GMAT and GPA. What's low? Glad you asked. I scored 590 on the GMAT, and my GPA was 2.5. Yes, you read that right. Before some of you jump to conclusions, let me pre-emptively strike: I am NOT an underrepresented minority!

tons more awesomeness...

This is an old post - but it's SO SO good and so on point!

I've been telling my clients this for years - and have personally witnessed over 170 students land in top 20 programs with, shall we say, less than "perfect" GMAT scores.

Kudos to you and thanks for keeping it honest!!

Hi everyone.

I am 26 years old with two years of experience in project financing in France. In my first year of perpetration, i have worked with an admission consultant that i could barely contact. In my second year i really did everything i could possibly do.
I can clearly say that MBAitNOW was the reason of my acceptance. I had approximiately the same result as last year (even slightly lower) but couldn't get accepted to any of the schools that i applied but this year i got accepted from UCLA Anderson. I suggest you benefit from the 1 hour consultation -> bit.ly/1JMltjM.

Good luck!

Posting stats and trying to gauge your chance of admission is wise, as picking the right path is important before starting the application process. That said, while the numbers are very important, there is much more to every application. To give you an example, this year one of my clients got interviews at M7 schools (and got into the only one that released decisions yet) with 1.5 years of work experience and a GRE below 320 (for most of you who are more familiar with the GMAT, the point is this is a very low score). Why was this applicant successful? Despite test scores that certainly did not impress, the story was quite unique and leadership experiences were almost unbelievable.

If you are weak in one area, focus on all of the other areas to improve your profile. Best of luck everyone!

Hi guys,
So I recently got admitted after hiring Ivy MBA Consulting. I would like to highly recommend their team and especially my fantastic personal consultant, Tal.
I think my consultants made a great work and I told them that even before I received the good news.
In my view, Ivy MBA Consulting succeeded to help me explain my goals, highlight my strengths and produce the maximum from my resume and story.
They directed me about key points, suggested creative approaches and insisted about every small detail in my application.
Moreover, during all the process, I felt that my success is their success too, as they went above and beyond for me. They were very dedicated and professional, and didn't cut corners. It was clear from the first moment that they are very experienced in this business, while always being fair to me.
In addition, Tal was always available for me, patient and savvy. She had crucial part in my admission.
For all of you who contemplate, I recommend Ivy MBA Consulting!
