Admitted in HBS (Harvard Business School)
I have some great news! I got into both INSEAD and HBS. Just got the news from HBS at noon today.
I basically decided to apply to HBS on December 24th and the deadline was on January 10th so it was a very intense process but luckily they only ask for four essays and all the essays and thinking I did for the INSEAD application helped a lot.
I just wanted to thank you and say that I was really grateful for all your help and insight and how you were there anytime I needed help.

LBS application
Sahil Mittal
Thanks a lot to Vineet Shekhar and General Ed team. I would like to thank you heaps for your help and continued assistance! I remember while writing the LBS essays I was trying to be dynamic and change too many things, in hope for improving upon them but without a proper guidance. The hardest parts of the entire LBS application were the essays that were turning out to be nightmares for me. Your deep analysis and wisdom, prompt replies and highlighting finer mistakes in my essays resulted in a flawless final draft of my application essays. The LBS essays also set a ground for all other essays I wrote for other Business Schools. Irrespective of the results, which I am hoping to be positive, I believe that it was a phenomenal team work and a great guidance by you.
Thank you once again.

I would like to thank Abhinav and the team of Gen-Ed for their help with my applications. Abhinav was a great help and his willingness to review essays at short notice was critical for me to be able to apply to all the schools I wanted to cover. His frank and open style helped me cut down the flab and drill down into what exactly I wanted to say on my essays. I would definitely recommend him as a consultant.

Finding the right consultant is very important but tricky. On flagging the problem to Gen-Ed's team, they were extremely proactive and helpful. Abhinav's quick turnaround times helped me save the day by applying to more schools in Round 2.


I have cleared the INSEAD interview. It would not have been possible without general ed.

Many thanks to General Education for help. Both Karuna and Pamli were helpful and extremely efficient and I will certainly be recommending GenEd to friends.

Pamli consistently led me to introspect and look at the larger picture, patiently read through my drafts and gave insightful comments on logical structure of essays.

I am really thankful to you for your guidance in achieving higher level of understanding and achieving a top class admit in a school like INSEAD.

I am pleased to share that I have cleared the INSEAD interview and has got an admit. I will be joining the Sep intake batch next year. I would like to thank the consultants of General Education for the brilliant work they with me for my application essays. Starting with Rajit who gave a direction to my plans which later made me realize what I was doing wrong earlier.

Special thanks to Pamli for being extremely helpful, insightful, methodic in her approach. She has been patient all throughout the process and extended all the possible help I could ever imagine. Now when I look back at my essays, they do make me feel good about myself :-). Concise yet impactful.

Thanks a ton once again! Look forward to keep in touch with you guys.

Ms. C N

Prior to starting applications last year, I was quite oblivious and distorted with many questions running through my head viz. how to go about, which schools to apply, which schools would suit my profile, how do I market myself appropriately, how much details to give, how do I manage within the word limit?

All I knew is that with a 660 GMAT, my application is gotta [sic] be substantial! But the question was How? I didn't know from where to start. I knew I needed help! I got in touch with Gen-Ed based on some impressive testimonials I read on their site. At first impression, they seemed quite welcoming compared to other obstinate counselors.

My expectations from the counselor were simple Good knowledge of B-school expectations, quality time, assistance with ideating and tremendous patience! I knew I was in the right hands the day I started working with Pankaj. He fulfilled all my expectations with 200% commitment and focus.

The most important part of the application is to come up with the RIGHT content for it. This is where Pankaj's experience was outstanding. He patiently reasoned every point with me till I was convinced. He not only helped me think right but also ensured that I portrayed it with the appropriate justifications. His ability understand the essay expectations and guide your thought process accordingly is very commendable. At the end of it, I was able to build on application substantially well and was very convinced with the output!

Finally, it did pay off! I was admitted to 2 of the most coveted B-schools in the world INSEAD and ISB.

After the extremely positive experience, I also took their services for scholarship applications. I was granted a scholarship of Eur 25,000 from INSEAD!
In totality, I highly recommend Gen-Ed as a very experienced MBA counselor with substance! They might be a little steep, but its [sic] totally worth every penny if you compare them to other relatively cheaper counselors who turn out to be mere editors!

I have got through both IMD and INSEAD and IMD has also offered a merit scholarship to me ...So , am planning to go forward with IMD , if am able to collect rest of the Moolah :) Thanks for all your help and effort
Admitted in INSEAD ILPSIE (INSEAD Leadership Programme for Senior Indian Executives)

Working with general education has been one of the most deciding factors in my success. Akshay has worked really hard with me not only on conceptualization but also customized his schedule many times to meet stringent application timelines in spite being busy. General Education's vast experience, legacy & insight about admission process and INSEAD interview are exceptional. They are truly a partner in success.

Ms. A R

Hi team,

This morning, I received an acceptance mail in INSEAD ILPSIE program.

And I must take this opportunity to thank you to each one of you.

Supreeth - Special thanks to you !! You gave me so much of confidence and truly helped me. Without you I could have never made it to INSEAD. I was so confused about the entire essay stuff. I had no clue what to write in first place. I am extremely happy as I wouldn’t have come even closer to writing admission essays like the ones we have created. Thanks a lot!

I will recommend General Ed to everyone who are interested in applying for such kind of courses. You guys rock !!! :)

Thank you once again.

Unlike my friends based in the US who had easy access to professional help for B-School admissions I had a serious disadvantage being based out of India. To top it all the crazy exchange rates meant that I could not afford the US based consultants. It was during a randomGooglesearch that I came across General Education and I decided to give it a shot. I got a chance to interact with Anoop for an initial profile evaluation and he seemed very supportive. Satisfied with his feedback I went for the paid 2 hour session on detailed profile evaluation and analysis with Ravikant which helped me fine tune my approach towards application. Anoop's optimism and Ravikant's morerealisticapproach towards B-School application turned to be a wonderful balance that helped me plan my applications appropriately. Special thanks to the General-Ed team for all the help.

I would like to thank General Education for helping me with my application and interview with Chicago Booth. Discussions with Vineet Shekhar and Pankaj helped guide my thought process enabling me to come up with wonderful essays. Vineet was always available to answer any questions that I had. Vineet and Pankaj will not write the essays for you. Instead they would teach you how to think and would help you come up with a structured approach to answer the essay questions. Going through this process would not only help you in preparing a great application but also would make you better at structured thinking and problem solving.I would highly recommend the services of General Education to any B School applicant.

Thanks to the entire General Ed team that guided me to realize my MBA aspirations.

I also get admits and scholarships from schools like - Georgetown McDonough with full scholarship, Kelley with 50% scholarship, Emory with 50% scholarship and Fisher with 50% scholarship plus monthly stipend of $700. I just graduated from Darden school of Business this fall and thought I will take time to thanks someone who helped me make it possible in the first place.

Thank you very much again for all your help and support.

"General Education made the difference between winning and losing in the MBA admissions process! Vineet, the consultant assigned to me, scheduled a call to understand my profile and identify the themes that I should highlight in my application. He was a patient taskmaster, working with me to turn out three drafts for each essay until I had managed to present a compelling case for why I should be admitted into a top business school. While writing essays may not sound like rocket science, communicating your values, experiences, and interests in a few hundred words is one of the most challenging parts of the MBA application...but it's also one of the parts over which you have the most control. Vineet's experience in working with scores of successful applicants over many years really helped me avoid common mistakes and create a final product that highlighted my strengths and resonated with the admissions board."

Hi Arun and Anoop,

It gives me immense joy to inform you that I got the call from Kellogg!!!

@Arun: I owe you a lot for my Kellogg success. It was the first application that we worked on together. Your attitude to never compromise on the quality of the application is awe-inspiring. Even after working together / refining our Kellogg app for almost a month, you still went on to push me refine the career goals essay just a day before submission! This speaks volumes about your attention to detail and quality. Many, many thanks!!

@Anoop: Your calming attitude and optimism is infectious. When I first spoke to you, I was little unsure of myself. You motivated me to apply to the best B-Schools and were always there to give me a ring when I needed advice. Thank you so much for your personal attention.

I'm indebted to you both. Thanks you so much.

I really appreciate the personal attention given to me at Gen-Ed, due to which I was able to improve my IMD application a lot and secure an admit too. I also took interview services for IMD where I got a lot of help in solving IMD case.
I took IMD interview service from General Ed, I was mainly looking for guidance in case Interview for IMD as it was something new in terms of the interview. IMD Case Study also involves on site team-work and working in those dynamics – for which I received proper instructions from General Ed.

Gen Ed asked me to send across a 1-2 page write up then they came up with their analysis, we then together discussed the case in detail and follow it up with any likely questions, imperatives, etc. They then shared similar cases from their repository and the solution for the respective cases.

The approach and the content were best in class and helped me to present the IMD case in best manner. What I got from General Ed was content and confidence and those were the major reason for my selection for IMD.

I had a great time working with Anirvan . Given I had a very low gmat score, I was skeptical about my admission but Anirvan helped me put across a strong application. We had multiple sessions where he helped me identify things that should go into my essays.Later,he reviewed each and every sentence in my essays multiple times and provided convincing and valuable feedback.I really appreciate and admire the patience that he showed while working on my essays as there were multiple edits on my essays.Without his inputs, I do not think I would have been able to write such good essays. Also, the mock interview prepared me well for my interview.I am truly thankful to Anirvan.

I would definitely recommend General Education to my friends.

I am both excited and tempted to share that I have been recently admitted in Boston University School of Management with a scholarship of over $50,000. Much of this is credited to Vineet Shekhar, one of the directors of General Education and the overall assistance I received in every step of my application from the entire team. Vineet, despite his schedules has worked really hard with me from conceptualization to tailor fitting my application for the school to meet its stringent application timelines. Working with General Education has been a deciding factor in my success and I couldn’t have been asked for more refined and professional assistance. General Education’s vast experience, legacy & insight in ensuring a successful B-School application is exceptional. They are truly a partner in success.
Admitted to Kelley and Mays School of Business
Hi Anoop,

I have got an admit from Kelley school of Business with a GraduateAssistantship for 2 years. As you know I also have an admit from Mays business school. Admit from both schools has confused me as Kelley is a highly ranked school and Mays is an averagely ranked one.
But Kelley is costing me 52 lacs (even after including scholarship and GA) and Mays is costing me 27 lacs (including the scholarship).
Mays's low cost and the career opportunities that Texas provides as compared to Indiana are currently pulling me towards Mays but the GA and the Kelley brand are pulling me towards Kelley.
Would be great if you can throw some light on these schools that would help me in decision making.
