“Finest ISB Consultants”
rating image 1

Starting from profile building to interview prep and ending up in India’s Top Business School for my MBA, LilacBuds not only helped me throughout my application process but also mentored me on aspects that I would carry for my lifetime. They were crystal clear with their approach towards how to go with the process. The structure was so informative that it helped me know more about myself.

Thank you for helping me get into my dream school.

“A Lot of Value”

Their detailing of stories about my experiences & goals really helped me think about my career from a more strategic perspective. Along with Preyash, I was also assisted by Shikha (an ISB alum) and I must say the whole team was very accessible & involved. The LilacBuds technology portal was really helpful in keeping the whole process streamlined and on track.

It’s very easy to choose a consultant and start the application process but what I was looking for was a mentor. LilacBuds not only helped me with my college applications but also guided and mentored me along the way! The whole approach really helped me understand my weaknesses and strengths. They are very approachable and understanding, and I never felt alone or confused in the process! Thank you for helping to get into my dream school.
