This is a recurring FAQ and perhaps some career counselling can be achieved when you interact with us over the phone. However, we feel that applying for higher studies is a life transforming experience. This needs a certain amount of thoughtful deliberation which is achieved through career counselling when all the options available to you are better understood across the table with us.
A counselling session is an interactive discussion which addresses your current need. If the student is in grade X, there is an element of career counselling involved. If the student is in grade 11 and grade 12, the career counselling generally revolves around their higher education needs. The counsellor evaluates the student’s current profile and makes suggestions to bolster it to make a more ambitious initiative as we feel that students come to us for value addition and we try our best to help them put their best foot forward. In the first session of career counselling, the student is given a clear picture of what we can help him/her achieve and then we leave it to the student to take it further with us.
In the first session of career counselling, you are required to fill an information form that gives us the basic information that we need to give you the first cut information. Subsequent to that, you would be required to follow a specific procedure for submission of documentation to your advising mentor.
Please note that every year thousands of students apply to the top schools and only a small percentage of these students are admitted. Most of these applicants are pretty much similar even in terms of grades and test scores. Hence, the Admissions Committees take a more holistic approach to evaluating applications and select candidates who are unique and show all around depth.
I am keen to do my MBA from one of the top ranked B schools and am preparing for my GMAT. I am working in a multinational company and hardly get any time to pursue any activity on the side. I have not much to write about to make my application unique… how can you guide me?

The personality development programs are tailor-made for each individual student based on a careful analysis of the student’s personality. This usually occurs after career counselling sessions. The idea is to help the student work on his/her weak areas and emerge confident and ready to make a mark in a more global context.
