Shruti Mam has been a perfect mentor in my MBA application process. The various brainstorming sessions with her helped me in identifying my strengths and learnings from my past experiences. The personal interest she takes in getting to know once background helps in portraying once true self in the essays. She is always a phone call away to help us in case of any difficulties and goes the extra mile to answer our questions. During the interview preparations, she guides you to prepare for the worst scenario that can unfold on that day and how to handle such situations. Her guidance and mentorship helped me in getting an admit in the IIM A PGPX course and would highly recommend Shruti Mam to anyone who needs help in their MBA applications.

I reached out to Shruti in July’21 to help me with my application for IIM Ahmedabad MBA PGPX and guess what – I made it...!! I had little idea about how to write the application and essays, and that is where Shruti came in. She was an amazing mentor to me throughout my IIMA application journey. She very well knows that what B-schools look for in a candidate’s application. Shruti and I had multiple brainstorming sessions in which she helped me to bring out the best qualities in my profile by carefully reflecting upon my past experiences and and guided me to write them in a structured manner in my essays. Shruti is also a very approachable and flexible person. I remember calling her for discussions at odd hours after wrapping up my office work and she was kind enough to take out time for discussions even on short notice. I strongly recommend her for any of the B-school consultations.
