London Business School

London Business School

My MBA application journey spanned 3 years and 11 applications (7 without TRP and 4 with TRP). I was only able to get up to the interview stage and could not convert any top schools in the first 2 years, despite having good work experience, a GMAT score of 750 and an undergrad brand (IIT Madras). Finally, thanks to TRP’s structured approach, a great lead consultant and dedicated teams for various components of the application, I got interviews with Wharton and LBS and eventually, an admit from LBS.

Since LBS MBA was a re-application for me, TRP advised me on how to showcase the progress I have made since my last application. Another aspect that makes TRP unique is the approach of their lead consultants; they go beyond just editing and reviewing the essays we send. Garima was like my friend and mentor with whom I could bounce off any ideas pertaining to the interview or application process and take her inputs. Garima’s research on the interview format and the interviewer helped me to a great extent in preparing for my interview.

Thank you TRP!

The fundamental role of independent educational consultants is to help students explore college opportunities and find the right place for them to succeed academically and socially. IECs don’t get students admitted—they help students demonstrate why they deserve to be admitted at appropriately chosen schools. They help students find colleges they might not have heard of—often out of their region—and they help students put their best foot forward.

Here are 5 things families should consider when looking to hire an IEC:

  1. Does the IEC belong to a professional association such as IECA with established and rigorous standards for membership?
  2. Do not trust any offers of guaranteed admission to a school or a certain minimum dollar value in scholarships.
  3. Ensure that the IEC adheres to the ethical guidelines for private counseling established by IECA.
  4. Find an IEC that visits college, school, and program campuses and meets with admissions representatives regularly in order to keep up with new trends, academic changes and evolving campus cultures.
  5. Do they attend professional conferences or training workshops on a regular basis to keep up with regional and national trends and changes in the law?
