What Our Students have to say

“A Good Investment”

Admitted to Stanford GSB, Kellogg

Class of 2023

The choice to work with Lilacbuds was excellent. We started working together by talking about my background, objectives, and aspirations. My mentor was able to create a genuine, distinctive, and personal application rather than a generic one in this way. Rajiv helped me see myself and steered the admissions process with precision and thoroughness. In addition to having a thorough understanding of the procedure, he is also incredibly empathetic and dedicated to raising the students up to be good in the world. It was so much more than just a transaction to work with them.

“A Genuinely caring helping hand”

Admitted to Columbia, LBS

Class of 2024

Sheel is a patient, diligent and meticulous consultant. When we first met, I wasn’t confident that I would get into a top business school because of my background. Being a Wharton Alum he gave me insights about how the Adcom will perceive my professional journey. He worked towards instilling confidence in me and my application by crafting captivating essays which articulated my story quite well. He always makes it seem like your application is the only one he is working on.

I highly recommend LilacBuds and their services.

“Couldn’t have done it without them!”

Admitted to Chicago Booth

Class of 2024

LilacBuds helped me plan and navigate the process of applying to my universities. While I had the GMAT score in place, I needed someone who could guide me in shortlisting schools that were the right fit for my profile and personality. Through our regular video meets, I found a mentor and partner who helped me balance my hectic job schedule with the application deadline calendar. I was able to deeply examine and understand my motivations for pursuing my MBA and write my best essays.

The entire team helped in preparing for the video mock interviews. I am really thankful to LilacBuds!
