"I got admitted into the Chicago Booth School of Business. I sincerely believe that the advice and support that I received from MBA Exchange was crucial in landing the admit. Many thanks to you and the team! Special thanks to Heather for guiding me through the whole admissions process. I will definitely recommend your services to my friends who're considering business education. Great team and wishing the organization many more successes!"

"I have been admitted to LBS program (one week after Booth). Thank you for your constant support over the last 6 months. Your advice on all aspects (resume, essays, interviews, application) and patient support has made a big difference."
"I want to thank you for MBA Exchange's help in my MBA applications and interview preparation. I started considerably late with my applications and so support from Ameya and the MBA Exchange were very crucial and helped me prepare well my essays and interview. And I could rely on the changes done by the editors without worrying about not sounding like me, as they took good care of that. I have received an admit from Chicago Booth and I am very excited about the result."
