I would like to thank Anubhav sir for his guidance throughout the application process. He pushed me to do better every time I talked to him by not sugarcoating the truth. He helped me tremendously with my essays making sure that every line was well thought out. Most of the interview questions he helped me prepare for turned up in one form or another during the actual interviews. The constructive feedback provided by Shivku sir after taking mock interviews was really valuable as well and helped me prepare for specific questions that I had not thought of. My overall experience was very positive and I am thankful to the entire team at Career Launcher.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank Career Launcher in facilitating my
University admission at the Swiss Hotel Management School (SHMS), Switzerland for
Bachelor of Arts in International Hospitality Management. The end to end process was
professionally managed under the guidance of subject matter experts.
Thank you once again and I would definitely recommend your institute to any potential students.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and all those associated in
facilitating University admission for my daughter Vaishnavi Menon to pursue Bachelor
of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery at University of Central Lancashire (UCLan),
The end to end process was professionally managed. - Lisha Menon (Vaishnavi's mother)
Thinking about the factors that contributed to my admission at Johnson (Cornell), I
cannot overstate the importance of a solid score on the GMAT. Coming from a non-STEM
background (law), I was nervous about performing well on the GMAT. Enrolling in
Career Launcher was one of the best decisions I made. Because of Career Launcher, I
was able to secure 720 in my very first attempt, after a couple of months of
preparation. In my view, Career Launcher is the one-stop solution for anyone looking
to secure a 700+ score. From the very first day, Career Launcher set an achievable
plan for me to succeed on the GMAT, identifying my strengths and weaknesses, and
setting relevant actionables which helped me make leaps of progress in my practice
tests. Shashank single-handedly helped me build the foundations of Quant. His
classes were extremely well structured, thorough and strategic. He was always
approachable and actively invited students to seek him outside of class to address
doubts. Mayurâs approach to the Verbal section on the GMAT was impeccable, exactly
what one needs to traverse the nuances of the tricky reading comprehensions and
sentence correction questions on the GMAT. All in all, hats off to the team of
Career Launcher. I wholeheartedly recommend it to any one who is preparing for the
GMAT and is looking for professional help and guidance.
Thanks a ton to the whole Career Launcher Team
I would like to thank Career Launcher for their Interview preparation and profile
building services. Starting my application so late in March I was a bit skeptical
about my chances of making it to the top-ranked business schools in Europe. My
association with Deepak sir, Bharat sir, Anubhav sir, Shivku sir, and the whole
Career Launcher team was quite productive. Deepak sir coordinated my preparation and
ensured that I get all the timely support. The mock interview session with Anubhav
sir and Shivku sir helped me gain confidence and prepared me appropriately to face
the interview. Bharat Sir's support immensely in preparing my SOP and completing the
application process. With their help in the application process, I got the call from
ESCP Europe for the MIM program and was able to convert it successfully. I would
definitely recommend Career Launcher for helping with the application and interview
Thanks a ton to the whole Career Launcher Team
Career Launcher has helped me at various steps of my preparation to pursue a master's degree in the United States and get admission in my dream university. The personal counselling helped me identify all the programs that fit with my future career interests and current skill set; and guided me through the application process. I was consulted by Mr. Anubhav, whose insights in various university programs and feedback on my CV and essays was extremely valuable. It helped me iteratively refine my essays and develop my strong and original applications, which helped me get admission into one of the top programs on my list.
Interviews are the most important part of any application process. You are expected to justify each and every statement you wrote in your essays. Career Launcherâs experts have a great deal of experience and they prepared me for every question that could possibly be asked. According to me, the personalized mock interviews and their evaluation by Mr Anubhav gave me immense confidence, which ultimately reflected in the final interviews as well.
Career Launcher helped me take the next step after writing my GMAT exam and achieving a 99 percentile. I knew I had chances in the top tier colleges, but only 4 years of work experience meant I needed to craft my profile accordingly and not jump the gun on wishful thinking. This is where Mr Anubhav from Career Launcher helped me immensely temper my profile and aid me in thinking from a managerial perspective. Anubhav provided much-needed help in building my profile and tailoring my essays. There were numerous iterations of draft essays until the final versions transpired. The mock interviews also simulated real-time interview experience and helped me work on my drawbacks and loopholes. The result exceeded my expectations. Not only did I successfully get admission at ISB, but I also made it through to IIM Ahmedabad's PGPX course and other world top 10 B schools in HEC Paris and IE Spain etc. I can only thank Career Launcher for their holistic approach and continued support in transforming my dreams into reality.
Master of Business Administration. Career Launcher has helped me by going the extra mile. I will be thankful to them forever for the help and support they extended to me by going beyond professional duty. They always guided me in every small thing and always charged me with their unending positivity. To me, Career Launcher is the best educational consultancy.
The team at Career Launcher helped significantly better my essays. My personal consultant, Anubhav Seth, was really insightful at highlighting my experiences in a way that would resonate with the admissions committee. In addition, the level of care and service he provided through every step of the application process is phenomenal.
My admit into the prestigious and highly coveted MBA program at LBS is a testament to that.
The support I received from Anubhav from Career Launcher was instrumental in converting my admission into Alliance Manchester. From helping with college selection to preparing me for the essays and interviews, Anubhav was constantly part of my application process. Thanks for assisting my application journey to the fullest!
I am grateful to Career Launcher for helping me secure admissions to my dream schools in the US. I was consulted by Mr. Anubhav Seth, who helped me throughout the application process to identify my career goals and apply accordingly to programs that fit the best with my current skill sets. I applied to the Master of Business Analytics program at MIT Sloan School of Management, Columbia University, and Georgia Institute of Technology, and I was fortunate enough to secure admission offers from all of them. His advice and suggestions helped me a lot in iteratively refining the application essays and videos. For the interview preparation, Mr. Anubhav helped me with multiple mock interviews with subject matter experts that helped me gain confidence and get prepared. The whole personalized counseling experience was tremendous and helped me secure admissions to all the schools I applied to in the US.
Graduate Certificate in International Business Management. I feel like every student should get a counsellor like you who motivates them & keeps them positive throughout the process. I really appreciate all your hard work.
Career Launcher has been instrumental in my achievement to secure admit from my dream college. Career Launcher admission consultants were of great help in the entire admission process, especially the interview preparation and essay editing. Their dedication to the process has paid off well.
When I started looking for admission consultants before round 1 of full-time MBA applications, I talked to a couple of Indian consulting agencies and got to know about their process. Last year, a couple of my friends had applied for MBA abroad and received guidance from other consulting agencies. I had heard a couple of bad reviews from them, hence I was very skeptical about whose guidance I should take so that I won't have to regret later. When I spoke with Bharath Sir from Career Launcher, I was quite convinced that he would rightly be able to help me in the entire process and decided to go with Career Launcher. After discussing the initial process, Anubhav Sir helped me with all my essays. My initial list of schools was very different from the schools to which I actually applied. We discussed in detail and he made me understand the factors on the basis I should be shortlisting schools. I received fair advice on every school I selected. We used to discuss essay prompts and he guided me to identify the right incidences in my life that could represent best of me in the essays of schools. On the deadlines, he used to be awake till late night to help me with applications. During the mock interviews, before every schoolâs interview, he took 3-4 mock interviews of mine and gave me feedback. I could see my application process was as important to him as it was for me. He pointed me in the right direction and mentored me really well throughout the process. Finally in round one, I could apply to 5 business schools, landed in interviews of 3, waitlisted in one post-interview and converted 1 with a scholarship - Tepper business school.
My journey to McMaster would have been incomplete without a mention of the active support and sage counsel received from Career Launcher. The mentors there are very actively involved with the student. I really benefited from the personal attention showered on me. I was able to make revisions galore (no pains there, trust me!) because of the hawk-eyed reviews I received from my Mentor. He was a key catalyst in making my application a really differentiated one.
The mentors at CL are very helpful. They know what is required, and provide relevant solutions to address those challenges. They work meticulously to help each and every student, so that no query is left unanswered.
Master of Science in Construction Management
Career Launcher helped me solve my doubts and with what is right and what is wrong along the process. They helped me make wise decisions. I am glad to say that Career Launcher has helped me achieve great heights from the beginning.
I had a very intrinsic experience at Career Launcher with my guides and the special classes they give. The personality development, the General Knowledge sessions and the interview cracking tips helped me to gain such a wonderful opportunity. I would specially like to thank Mr. Bharat Sharma as he assisted me at every step and made me design my profile and all the required documents well before the application deadline. I truly appreciate all the endeavors the teachers take at Career Launcher to construct the trust in an individual and making their dreams a truth of their lives.
Graduate Certificate in Artificial Intelligence. My experience with Career Launcher was great. From selecting the right college to paying the fees and everything, they helped me in each and every step of the way. They always went the extra mile to ensure that everything's going well.
It was a very focused, and deliberate, support from my Mentor at Career Launcher that laid the foundation for me to ace the admission process in Yale SOM. My NIFT background meant that I was arguably in need of Math support, which came through as a default and in addition, I also learnt a lot from the counseling support I received from my Mentor. He ensured that at every point of time during our sojourn, I was working to lift my profile up from a star performer to a holistic superstar (in the eyes of the ad-com). Thanks indeed!
MS in Computer Science. Career Launcher guided me to determine which university is the best to apply for masters and shortlisted universities which are very good and even saved my application fee. In 10 to 15 days, I got a conditional offer letter from the University of Dayton and from that day till the date of my visa interview they guided me in all aspects, even they arranged for a zoom call with the university officials to clarify my doubts.
It has been a great experience receiving guidance and support. The CL's admission councling program helped me on how to go about approching a college and fixing the right time to schedule my exams.I could just approch the faculty anytime with any kind of queries-small or big. I would highly recommend the program to students aspiring for international education.
Master of Business Administration. With Career Launcher's help, not only I received an MBA offer but a 10k CAD scholarship as well. Throughout the process, they were quick, courteous and very helpful. My experience with Career Launcher has been more than pleasant as they keep students' interest above all. They provide every bit of factual information to help you make an informed decision for your future.
With a GRE score of 304 and TOEFL score of 91, I doubt how many of us can even dream to land in top universities like University Of Southern California and Arizona State University. I really had any hopes to land into my dream universities !But, I just wanted to give it a try, and! When you have the right coach at your back, you never know, your trial shot can actually land to a perfect six. It was Anubhav, who had my back to turn my career dreams into reality! I loved the entire journey starting from choosing the universities to getting admits and to applying for scholarships as well! A big Thanks to Anubhav for the incredible guidance ( and especially your patience in dealing with my queries), And special thanks to ARKSS, for helping me with the right direction at the most needed time. Apart from building careers, CL shapes you as a person! It's not just joining an institute for coaching, its actually shaping your career through the guidance of incredible mentors and hence, shaping your own self!
My journey with Career Launcher has been a remarkable one. I enrolled for International Admissions Counselling with Career Launcher last September and I haven't looked back since then. I wanted to join the prestigious MIM Programs in Europe for 2020 intake. The whole application process does look extremely intimidating in the beginning, especially for top schools. With lots of essays, LORs, and standardized test scores, the process is indeed cumbersome, but I was guided through each step very personally by Anubhav Seth, my consultant. I got interview invites from almost all the schools I applied to which include HEC, ESSEC, ESCP, WHU. I secured a 100% scholarship from ESCP Business School and needless to say I am satisfied with the offer. If you are looking for someone else to write your essay in a preset template (which all Adcoms know btw), this is probably not the ideal service for you. But if you want to work with your consultant and grow and improve yourself as an individual and a professional, you should consider CL's services. Overall, I am extremely happy with my decision to choose CL.
Supply Chain Management. Today I got my study visa. The process is too long, but you have never missed a single call or msg. You're always there, from the Letter of acceptance to filling the visa, every step is crucial. N guided me in the right way. I am so happy that I got my study visa in a single shot. Without choosing Career Launcher , the process won't be that smooth for me. Thanks for helping me in the process.
The admission consulting experience with CL has been remarkably smooth and rewarding. I was guided in every step of the way: from choosing the right schools to preparing for GMAT and IELTS. The counselors were not only knowledgeable; they were also good listeners. They were all ears whenever I was in a dilemma regarding my career choices, and they also elucidated about the possibilities that lie ahead for me, thanks to their experience in counselling students from Tier-1 engineering colleges. I'd recommend everyone considering a career in management to get in touch with CL. It'll clear the clutter viz a viz the complex admission process and would let the candidate get insights about life post-B-school.
I wanted to pursue a MIM from any of the top 10 programs of the world right after my undergraduate degree. My low GMAT score and engineering background got me to doubt my chances of getting into a top B school. I was always in touch with consultants of Career Launcher throughout the year with my queries and hence decided to take their help with my applications. From the journey of shortlisting the B schools to receiving the admit letter, they have strived continuously to get me into my dream B school. I do not think anybody puts as much effort into helping students to personalize their SOPs and essays along with constant guidance. They know how to portray a student's endeavors in the best possible manner to bring out a compelling essay. The interview sessions were of great help, and I learned how to deal with any questions. The result was the conversion of my applications to admits in top B schools such as ESSEC and ESCP Europe. I would suggest Career Launcher to anyone who dreams of getting into the best.
MSc Advanced Drug Delivery. Career Launcher guided me on how to choose the correct path and get me into the best university for masters. They not only helped me in applications and admission process but also with visa and accommodation process too.
The mentors at CL went an extra mile to bring out the best in my profile. With a desire to bring out the best, they prepared me quite rigorously for the interview process. Therefore, my entire process of filling the application to getting into the university went on very smoothly and all credit goes to CL.
My application shone because of a lot of microscopic reviews & magnificent support from my Mentors! The support I received from Career Launcher Mentors was unstinted and always top class. I felt really relieved after meeting my Mentors because they helped me bring a solidity to my Verbal performance, given that I am from an Architectural background. In addition, my sister's experience with them also helped me be convinced about CL as the place to seek admission consulting support from!
I had already tried for Yale once and was disappointed after being placed on the waitlist without an interview. While doing an initial assessment of my profile, my mentor at CL told me that Yale was the perfect destination for me. He made me write almost 8-9 versions of each of Yale's essay prompts. Finally, when I submitted my essay, I got an interview call and with his guidance I could make it to my dream B-school.
The CL Advanced Placement prep helped me pass five AP exams and helped me skip a whole year at UIUC. I used that time to get a second degree in Maths and a minor in computational mechanics. By the end of third year, I started taking graduate courses in maths, which will led to its own time savings. In fact, the whole process of Admission Consulting with CL was as comprehensive as it can get. The internship that I was allowed to do, the shortlisting of the universities (classified as Dream, Reach & Safety schools), the identification of the best-fit programs and the personality tests that were used to arrive at these decisions were all wonderfully precise.
My first contact with CL was right after I had given my GRE. I had scored a pretty decent score, but I knew I required someoneâs help to get admission in a top notch University. CL made this possible! CL was of big help in editing my SOP. Even the minute of details were taken care of. Special thanks to Biruda Virkud ma'am for guiding me through the admission process in a timely manner and keeping me updated on the scholarships available.
Career Launcher, with its admission consulting services, has been an incredible help in getting me to Kelly Business School. The counsellors were well-read and thorough in their approach, and were also cognizant of my needs & dreams. All the discussions were focussed on me and to get the best-fit for me. The application consulting process was smoothly handled and in the end, I am thankful for the support given to me in getting my dream call!
