Check out what our Past EDHEC clients say about our Services

The fact that they offer unlimited edits until everything seems perfect is what I value the most. I really appreciate the mock interviews that were conducted which helped me face the panelists. Also, I could reach out to my mentor with any question, whether or not it was related to the application or interview, and he would respond as soon as he could.

Student, EDHEC

Definitely, the CV and Essay edition packages enriched  my profile. Writing a CV or an Essay is not a difficult task, but making it perfect to each school is what makes the difference and I think every call with Abhyank helped perfect my essay and was an opportunity to learn from previous mistakes and correct them in the best possible way.
