Indian Engineer – In at Wharton!
Admitted to: Wharton

I’m heading to Wharton this Fall – the ApplicantLab was the secret sauce that got me in. (In fact, Maria’s/the Lab’s advice “let’s not bury the lede” has played out right here! 🙂

For context – I’m an Indian male engineering – a special snowflake – just like everyone else. Additionally, my number of years of work experience was relatively “light” when compared to the rest of the cohort and the company I work for usually begs the question, “Where do you work, again?” By the way, did I mention that my GMAT score was slightly below school averages, and way below standards for engineers from India?

While initially shopping around for consultants, the feedback I received was usually dismissive (“aim-lower”). However, with ApplicantLab, I felt more confident to give the top schools a shot.

The Lab’s modules are self-contained, if you’re the kind of person who is self-directed, you’ll find all the advice you need. I was blown-away by the video guidance in the Lab — it’s like talking to her face-to-face, and you get to rewatch them to let the message sink in.

The interview module is also great — not only for the standard interviews, but her advice for the Wharton TBD is also spot on. (this is an entirely different beast from the HBS interview, and is probably the “nicest team-discussion” that you’ll have in your life – see the Lab for details!).

Hands-down, ApplicantLab is the future of affordable admission consulting. Maria has done a fantastic job of making expert admission advice, services that typically cost high four-figure / low five-figure $ amounts, accessible to a broader audience.
