We believe there is no stronger testament than the words of prior clients whom our Founder/CEO has worked with:
"Shaifali was my guardian angel throughout my business school application process…teaming up with her for my applications was the best investment I ever made and is already changing my life.”
"Shaifali was my guardian angel throughout my business school application process. I started working with Shaifali in July and from our very first phone call, I felt completely supported and understood. Shaifali listened to my career goals and she created a strategy to overcome my weaknesses (low quant score on GMAT) to get into a top school. With Shaifali's step-by-step guidance, I was able to dig further into each school's program and my own MBA goals to build competitive applications for Round 1 deadlines. Shaifali also made herself completely available to me and was quick to turnaround edits for all of my essays. Shaifali and her Board of Advisors meticulously combed through every sentence of my essays to ensure that they were free of errors and clear in meaning. Shaifali also prepped me for all of my interviews so I would know how to prepare for questions and feel confident talking to interviewers. Shaifali took a stressful situation and broke it down into milestones that, with her unwavering support, seemed less daunting.
In the end, I received acceptances from Stanford GSB, Wharton, Northwestern Kellogg, and UC Berkeley Haas. I could not be more grateful for all of Shaifali's help. Teaming up with her for my applications was the best investment I ever made and is already changing my life. I highly recommend Shaifali's services to anyone who is applying for business school."

"Shaifali is authentic...she is the best sounding board and she's incredibly responsive...I'm extremely grateful for Shaifali and would recommend 10/10 to anyone looking for a partner in the MBA process.”
"From my first conversation with Shaifali, I was sold on her approach. Applying to an MBA can feel incredibly daunting (especially while you are trying to balance a full time job) and after speaking with Shaifali I felt like I had a partner — someone who not only had the inside scoop on how to approach this process, but also someone who could validate all the little questions and doubts along the way. Shaifali helped me from Fall through Spring, from the earliest stages of my applications, through interviews, and ultimately acceptance at my dream school.
Shaifali is incredibly organized. She brings structure and discipline to an otherwise hectic process. She’s authentic, helping you to piece together different elements of your story while making sure your application is the best representation of yourself. She is the best sounding board and she’s INCREDIBLY responsive. She always provided comprehensive and timely feedback, answering questions long after typical business hours.
Shaifali not only brings her experience applying to and going to HBS, but she also has deep knowledge of the top programs and what they are seeking in each candidate. I felt 100% confident in her knowledge of the schools, the admissions’ committees’ expectations and how I could shape my applications to stand out. I’m extremely grateful for Shaifali and would recommend 10/10 to anyone looking for a partner in the MBA process.”

"I was amazed at Shaifali's ability to listen to my background and quickly tease out my 4-6 most defining qualities and then help create a plan for how to effectively work each of them into my application...I highly recommend her to anyone applying to a top MBA program.”
" I interviewed several MBA admissions consultants before deciding on Shaifali, and in retrospect, she was the perfect choice for me. As someone with a fairly typical MBA applicant background and a competitive GPA and GMAT, my original primary goal for engaging a consultant was to find somebody who could help me figure out what to write about in my essays. After one conversation with Shaifali, I realized she would be vital for much more than just my essay topics, as she helped me define who I am and then effectively translate that into an application. I was amazed at Shaifali’s ability to listen to my background and quickly tease out my 4-6 most defining qualities and then help create a plan for how to effectively work each of them into my application. Of all the ways Shaifali helped with my application, I think this initial step of creating an “application strategy” was the most helpful for me and something I would not have been able to do successfully without Shaifali.
I was working a demanding job with long hours at the time, so I greatly valued Shaifali’s ability to concisely communicate her thoughts effectively. This is one quality that led me to choose Shaifali over other consultants I had interviewed, and it is a quality that I consider extremely valuable for anyone who is pressed for time (as I believe most MBA applicants are, in one way or another).
I decided to focus all my application energy on applying to Harvard for R1, so I chose the comprehensive, 1 school package from Shaifali. With Shaifali’s help, I was admitted to HBS, my dream school, and I couldn’t be happier with the outcome or the process. I think Shaifali was worth every penny and I highly recommend her to anyone applying to a top MBA program.”

"I was very impressed with the vision Shaifali had for my application...she was instrumental in my success."
”I'd like to thank Shaifali for the fantastic guidance and support she provided in my b-school application journey. Applying from West Africa, I needed an adviser who understood the context from which I was applying. In our first conversation, I gave her a summary of my life journey. She immediately developed 5 strong themes around which I would build my application story to highlight my unique background and experiences. I was very impressed with the vision she had for the application. I knew then that Shaifali was the perfect fit.
She was very responsive to my emails and made time to Skype chat even with little lead time. Her feedback was also actionable. After reading her emails or having a conversation, I was clear on next steps. I also appreciated how straight-forward her feedback was, not mincing words. Shaifali was professional throughout the process and light-hearted when she needed to be.
Having worked together, I had total confidence that I had given the b-schools a full picture of me. We worked on 3 school applications together - I got accepted into 2 (including my top choice) and waitlisted by 1. She was instrumental in my success."

"My time with specifically Shaifali, was hands down, the best academic support system I have ever received."
"My time with specifically Shaifali, was hands down, the best academic support system I have ever received.
To begin with, [she] took the time to dive incredibly deep into my personal background. It went far beyond reviewing my solid GPA and GMAT score and into understanding who I was as a person, what my vision for my career was, and how I could contribute to a business school.
Shaifali specifically was fantastic to work with. As a consultant myself, my schedule was always slammed, so Shaifali really went the extra mile to plan out milestones that would be reasonable given my workload. After speaking with her just a few times, she zoned in on my career passions and helped me bring out so much more of my personal experience than I thought possible in my essays. She was incredibly patient in my frequent need to edit and often "over-engineer" essays but also took the time to let me execute the real changes (word-smithing and otherwise) so I could take full ownership of the finished product.
By far the most useful part of my time with Shaifali was the interview preparation. I was incredibly shaky to start (given the magnitude of the task at hand) but Shaifali was incredibly calming and encouraging, helping me realize I was thoroughly qualified and prepared to present myself in the best light to my interviewer. I walked out of my interview with Stanford GSB proud - it was the best interview I had ever completed.
Thanks to Shaifali specifically for a wonderful experience and helping me reach this incredible accomplishment. Cheers."

"Shaifali guided me through a thoughtful and nuanced process to craft my narrative on every part of application...she always provided insightful advice."
"Shaifali is amazing!! She worked with me on one full MBA application and then a couple of essays for other schools. I ended up at my top choice school in the double MBA/Public Policy program.
The full MBA application package was 100% worth it. Shaifali guided me through a thoughtful and nuanced process to craft my narrative on every part of the application. From guidance on my resume to selecting references to prepping for interviews, Shaifali always provided insightful advice. She even helped me wordsmith my emails to the Admissions office after I was waitlisted! I felt like I got much more than my money’s worth from Shaifali.
Additionally, as a traveling consultant, Shaifali was super responsive and flexible to my schedule. She helped me plan for application deadlines while I was on the road and was always available for a quick phone call.
I still send all of my friends/mentees to Shaifali for their MBA application process. Thank you Shaifali!"

"From the start, Shaifali helped me to find my own voice in my MBA applications...I would highly recommend Shaifali to be a trusted guide on your admission journey."
"From the start, Shaifali helped me to find my own voice in my MBA applications. She really listened to my story and helped me distill who I am clearly in my application. She helped me bring all of my experience and my dreams together into a solid application strategy and she guided me through the rather stressful process with patience and support. Whenever I had any questions or doubt, Shaifali always got back to me in a day with her honest opinion. With her support, I was interviewed at four out of the six schools I applied, and was admitted into two M7 schools, which includes my dream school. I would highly recommend Shaifali to be a trusted guide on your admission journey.”

"Shaifali helped me find myself amongst the various moving parts of my life...I would not have accomplished this incredible feat of a successful last minute application without her."
“Shaifali helped me find myself amongst the various moving parts of my life.
Applying to graduate school was a very sudden and deliberate decision. I had less than three months in total to study and take the GMAT before the applications were due. On top of that, I had to keep up with work and my various community commitments. Having taken a first look at applications by myself, I was completely disoriented. I had reached out to my college best friend who had recently started school at HBS and he recommended his MBA Admissions Consultant, Shaifali. Despite the tight deadline, she was able to break each step down into manageable and meaningful pieces, with each step bringing me closer to a polished application. She guided me through the process and helped me assemble a storyboard true to myself. Through various brainstorming sessions and iterations of my essays with her, I was able to paint a story of my life and accomplishments with pride and confidence.
I had disadvantaged my applications by not preparing for the GMAT well in advance and as a result, achieved a below-average score. This may have been a factor to my waitlist status at my dream school. Despite this setback, Shaifali supported me throughout the waitlist process and guided me through each applicant update requested by the school. Ultimately, I was accepted into my dream school off the waitlist and I would not have accomplished this incredible feat of a successful last minute application without her."

"Shaifali is thoughtful and strategic, and a true partner - from start to finish...she makes you feel like she's wholeheartedly on your team; I couldn't recommend her more."
“I can't imagine having gone through the MBA admissions process without Shaifali. She is thoughtful and strategic, and a true partner — from start to finish. I had a relatively unconventional work background, and she helped me craft my narrative in a way that I was able to get into my dream M7 school with a less-than-average GMAT score. Her sage advice paired with her timely and constructive feedback at all points of the process — recommenders, essays, interviews — not only kept me sane throughout the process, but also gave me the confidence to tell my story and understand how it would be perceived by my dream schools. Shaifali makes you feel like she's wholeheartedly on your team; I couldn't recommend her more."

"Shaifali is a phenomenal consultant and resource when it comes to the admissions process. She has a keen eye for detail and keeps the big picture in mind when helping craft your application."
"Shaifali is a phenomenal consultant and resource when it comes to the admissions process. She has a keen eye for detail and keeps the big picture in mind when helping craft your application.
I'd highly recommend scheduling a kick-off call with her - going through the strategy phase of the process with Shaifali was extremely valuable. She listens to your story and brainstorms strategies to position your application effectively in a way that is unique to you, and it is especially helpful if you're from an overrepresented group like I was (Indian-engineering).
Shaifali's insights were crucial to help distinguish my application from the rest of the pool, especially since I had less than stellar GMAT scores and graduated from a school that wasn't well known, even in India. She's fully invested in the process, and works her magic, iteratively chiseling away at refining the application (the resume, essay, and even the data-fields) for as many iterations as you like. The result - I was able to represent myself in a compelling way in my applications and I received interview invitations from HBS, Wharton, Kellogg, and Haas.
She also helps craft a compelling narrative when practicing for the interview component of the application. She provides feedback on each question that's asked during mock sessions and provides suggestions for improvement. Like the iterations on the essays, she helps you run through several interview "styles" - from simulating extremely stressful-poker-faced-interactions to ones in which the interviewer is much more candid and engaging. When I went into the actual interviews, I took a deep breath, and let the training kick-in, knowing that I'd been through a much more stressful mock interview.
I'm enrolling at Wharton this Fall. I'm immensely grateful to Shaifali, for helping me land a place in the class of 2020 - I'd very highly recommend her services - and hopefully, you'll also receive a call from admissions, congratulating you on your acceptance!" :)

"In the strongest possible terms, I recommend working with Shaifali. Her process and advice made all the difference in my application journey and I could not be happier with the end result."
"Shaifali’s approach to evaluating each applicant’s candidacy helped me differentiate myself within a pool of countless other profiles with similar backgrounds, experiences, and statistics. Her comprehensive package explores every aspect of your life to-date, working to craft a story that is unique to you. For me, the “no stone left unturned” methodology identified the underlying themes that motivated me and turned me into who I am today, and helped me convey this story of development concisely across all my essays.
Specifically, Shaifali helped me every step of the way, from constructing my application identity and strategy to school selection and identification of my recommenders. She was a phenomenal resource for my recommenders, providing direct feedback to help them strengthen their anecdotes in their letters of recommendation. Shaifali and I iterated numerous times on my resume and each essay for each school; her feedback was always timely and incredibly precise. After feedback from her Advisory Board on my application, I was confident that my applications were as strong as they could possibly be. I was invited to interview at my top choices. Shaifali helped me prep for my interviews, providing guidance on questions to expect as well as best practices for answering tricky behavioral questions.
Ultimately, I was admitted to my top choice and I am very excited to be entering next fall. In the strongest possible terms, I recommend working with Shaifali. Her process and advice made all the difference in my application journey and I could not be happier with the end result!"

"I could not have achieved my results without Shaifali's invaluable support and I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for an MBA consultant!"
"From the start, I felt daunted by the entire business school application process and knew that I needed someone to guide me. After speaking with several consultants, I decided to go with Shaifali because she not only connected with me the most, but also came with the highest recommendations from a friend.
I was able to craft a very compelling personal story after completing a comprehensive MBA Application Strategy exercise with Shaifali, who helped me crystallize my career goals and reasons for pursuing an MBA. Shaifali provided excellent and insightful feedback for everything application related including my essays, resume, recommendation letters, and even my post-interview thank you emails and scholarship negotiation emails. She always responded within 48 hours and was always happy to hop on a call with me when I needed more in-depth discussions regarding her feedback.
Ultimately, I received interviews from 5 out of the 6 schools that I applied to and will be matriculating at Wharton in the fall. I could not have achieved these results without Shaifali’s invaluable support and I would highly recommend her for anyone looking for an MBA consultant!"

"Shaifali was extraordinarily helpful throughout the entire MBA application process, and I would without question recommend her consulting services."
"Shaifali was extraordinarily helpful throughout the entire MBA application process, and I would without question recommend her consulting services. From Day 1, she was helpful in advising on what schools to think about and what those schools look for in applicants. She helped develop my narrative and identify key strengths to include in my essays. Shaifali was very supportive by walking me through different ideas for my essays and ways of positioning myself. She had incredibly quick turnaround times for written pieces and was available to speak with me at any point throughout the process no matter what question I had. Shaifali's genuine support, her ability to help identify key themes in my narrative and bring those out, and her knowledge of the very comprehensive and, at times, daunting process of applying to B-school, were completely invaluable to me and enabled me to gain acceptance at one of my top schools. Furthermore, her understanding of different nuances in various school's applications was very helpful. I am extremely grateful for all of Shaifali's help throughout the process and definitely recommend her consulting services to anyone thinking about business school."

"Shaifali's program was extremely thoughtful and guided me naturally along an extremely reasonable timeframe...her personal approach made all the difference."
"I worked with Shaifali directly on my applications to business school this coming Fall. She came well-referred by friends in the industry and my experience matched theirs quite neatly. My main points of concern and motivation for working with a consultant were organization (given my tight timeframe for applying) and time management (given that I was continuing to work full-time in the finance industry while simultaneously submitting applications). Shaifali’s program was extremely thoughtful and guided me naturally along an extremely reasonable timeline that she set forth at the very beginning. I found that having a fairly objective helping hand throughout the process was invaluable, and I really believe I would have seen different results had I chosen to pursue the process alone while working full-time. Her personal approach made all the difference and her willingness to go out of her way to match my schedule relieved a large amount of stress and anxiety while I was in the office. With Shaifali’s assistance, I gained admission to 2 / 3 of my target programs and am extremely excited to begin my MBA journey this Fall!"

"What I found most helpful was the insights Shaifali gave me about each of the individual schools and the realistic feedback that she gave me, advice that was invaluable throughout the process."
"I used Shaifali's hourly services to help mainly for the essay and interview portion of my MBA applications. I applied to four schools and while I had already identified what I wanted to say in my applications, I had a difficult time conveying this through the essay portion of my application. I spoke with several admissions consultants and decided to work with Shaifali for several reasons. Firstly, the hourly services allowed me to focus on the help I needed. Secondly, of all the consultants, she was most able to help me figure out actionable steps to get me out of my rut and sell my story to schools. Lastly, she was extremely responsive and always willing to get on the phone or respond via email, based off of my schedule. What I found most helpful was the insights she gave me about each of the individual schools and the realistic feedback that she gave me, advice that was invaluable throughout the process and I believed helped me get into two schools and an interview with a third."

"Bottom line - all you have to do is look at the results. With Shaifali's guidance, I got into HBS, my dream school (I was also invited to interview at Stanford). Shaifali is very thoughtful in her approach and her attention to detail is second to none. I was an international applicant, and she worked with me to put together the best strategy given my different experiences. Shaifali's suggestions when it came to my essays were spot on, and she was instrumental when it came to helping me coach my recommenders and prepare for my interviews. Whenever I had any doubt during the process, she was always positive! If you're applying to business school, you want Shaifali at your side...period."

"I have to say that Shaifali has been SUCH an indispensable asset for me...I am not exaggerating when I say that I could not have gone through this process without her."
"I worked with Shaifali on 3 MBA applications for Round 1 for almost half a year, and I have to say that she has been SUCH an indispensable asset for me. I initially tried to complete all applications myself and "cut corners" (eg. only enroll in essay-editing services with another company), but looking back, Shaifali's full spectrum consulting services is the best investment I've made in this process. She was recommended to me by two college classmates (who were both accepted to top tier MBA programs). Right away, Shaifali patiently worked with me on my "story" and helped me package my bizarre employment history into a compelling story that made sense. Shaifali is a magician with this kind of work, and I have to say that this is one of the greatest value-add to my overall applications. After this, we worked through dozens of drafts of my essays, where Shaifali continuously pushed me to elaborate more on my impact and helped me to fill in the holes I couldn't see myself. She also has an incredible work ethic and quick turnaround times, which makes working with her a flawless process. This all paid off as I was offered interviews to all 3 schools I had applied to as well as a scholarship to the school I will be attending. And needless to say, Shaifali also helped me prepare for my interviews. We worked on each interview question one by one, and she persisted in helping me overcome my nerves and become a confident interviewer.
Overall, I am not exaggerating when I say that I could not have gone through this process without Shaifali. She is incredibly insightful, articulate, and patient. I also appreciate how she was "always there" for me with her best and honest advice; I consulted her for big questions like overall strategy, to little ones like how I should respond to certain emails. I've personally recommended Shaifali to my close friends applying to MBA programs and will recommend her to anyone reading this too!"

"Shaifali provided tremendous insights...she mentored me to develop essay responses which were very 'me' and were better than I ever would have developed on my own."
“Coming from an Army background, I didn’t know too much about the MBA application process. I had a great experience all around while working with Shaifali. She helped me to see what I needed to prioritize and she was very flexible and helpful in working with my personal availability (I had a busy training schedule overseas during the application timeframe). Shaifali had great insights into strengthening my resume and she patiently worked with me as I turned in version after version for her to review. She was always timely in returning feedback and consistently provided quality comments on my submissions. She also quickly fielded answers to my multiple and varied questions on resume writing and everything else I thought of in regards to MBA applications. When it came to essay writing, Shaifali provided tremendous insights and she clearly has an excellent command of grammar and writing structure. Through direct written feedback as well phone calls she mentored me to develop essay responses which were very “me” and were better than I ever would have developed on my own. In the end, I was incredibly happy with my essays, application responses, and my resume. I was also incredibly happy with the results of being admitted to two MBA programs. Overall, it was a fantastic experience to work with Shaifali."

“I worked with Shaifali on three business school applications. Shaifali added tremendous value when it came to helping me craft my storyboard, edit my resume, and tighten my essays. I was most nervous about the essays and short responses, as expressing myself through writing does not always come naturally to me. Through multiple iterations, Shaifali helped me tell my story in a way that was authentic and competitive. I also appreciated how she worked closely with my recommenders to provide 3rd-party feedback. I trust Shaifali’s expertise in admissions consulting and if I were to apply again, I would absolutely choose to work with her.”

First and foremost, beyond the one dimensional proof-reading that my friends could provide, her advice was simultaneously both thoughtful and thought-invoking and challenged me to dig deeper into the core of my argument. Having that second pair of eyes to poke at my ideas motivated me to strengthen and polish my writing. Second, being able to bounce ideas off her also served as a source of mental support for me. Lastly, I enjoyed working with Shaifali especially because of her to-the-point and (always) responsive attitude. She is a straight shooter with no frills but great substance.”

"I cannot recommend Shaifali enough! In applying to business school, I had a non-traditional path I hoped to take after business school and a low GPA (barely over 3.0), so I needed a lot of help to craft my application story, essays, etc.

Most of all, I was very impressed with her responsiveness and willingness to jump on the phone to talk through essays, interview prep, and everything in between!
Shaifali helped me overcome my low GPA and I was eventually admitted to two top-5 schools (including my number 1 choice that was surely a stretch school before I started working with Shaifali). To top it off, I was also offered a full scholarship at one of these schools.

I went into the application process knowing I was on the younger end for years of experience and on the lower end for quant.

From the initial phone consultation to the last application, Shaifali, through her seasoned wisdom, valuable advice that was both direct and honest, and confident leadership, helped me paint a complete picture that both boosted my confidence and elucidated and concreted the reasons why I wanted to attend business school even with being on the lower end of experience. It was her superior leadership that led to my acceptances to two of my top schools. I owe a huge thank you to Shaifali! Overall, the experience was amazing."

"While working by myself last year on my MBA and MS applications, I was disappointed with the initial response from the schools that I had applied to. It is then when I decided to reach out to Shaifali and utilize her experience and expertise in shaping my applications. I am so glad that I did – it was the best decision that I made!
While working with Shaifali, we went through the various parts of each application. As we did so, I could comprehend and see the changes in the structure of my application while making it suitable for business schools. For example, with Shaifali’s guidance, I was able to build a unique personal story in my essays while keeping them quite authentic, use innovative methods to concisely relay achievements in my resume and effectively prepare for both in-person interviews and video essays. She also provided extremely valuable advice to help me prep my recommenders so that their recommendation letters were very strong.
Shaifali truly cares about her clients, and it was a pleasure working with her. She was always responsive to my questions both via email and when I wanted to speak with her on the phone, and she patiently worked with me so that I could present the best and truest version of myself in my applications.
Soon after I worked with Shaifali, successful results started coming in and I was admitted to 3 of 3 programs that I applied to. I'd highly recommend Shaifali as an admission consultant if you are looking for a Midas touch in your applications!"
