Déjà vu! It happened last year when we were managing international MBA applications on our own. The demand was too much for us to handle and we couldn’t help out many deserving candidates. So we got into a partnership with one of the best international teams in the business – Precision Essay (founded by our good friend Jon, a Harvard MBA grad). Like us, they think and operate like a boutique firm (no factory mentality) and a complete focus on the existing clientele rather than just on the revenue. And the efficacy of this approach shows in the positive results from the previous application round.
Thanks a ton for appreciating our unconventional business model and our unique approach to MBA admissions consulting in India. For the first time Indian MBA applicants have access to world-class services at Indian prices. And you gave us a double thumbs up. The demand spiked up this year as well (way beyond our expectations) and crossed our combined capacity.
It happened in Round 1 when we had to stop taking in new clients several weeks before the deadlines for many schools. And it’s happening again in Round 2 much before we anticipated.
In the interest of those who signed up early with us for multiple schools we have to announce that we aren’t taking in any new clients at this stage. Of course, if you’ve already been working with us this doesn’t impact you in any way.
If your application deadlines are beyond mid-January 2011, we could still consider it on a case-by-case basis. And if you are planning to push in a few Round 3 applications, do get in touch with us early. This applies only the essay editing services. Our other services (MBA profile evaluation and applicaton strategy, interview preparation, management consulting packages et al) are still open.
We’ll put our heads together and see how we can expand our capacity without sacrificing quality to get many more desi bhai-bandhu into the toughest and the best business schools globally. Till that happens, for those who are planning to apply next year, your best bet is to plan early, contact us early and lock in your slots.
