Our Successful Applicants and What They Say About Us

Honest & Invested

NYU admit - $40K scholarship

Class of 2024

In an industry where everybody is trying to sell you their services, LilacBuds takes a different approach and tells you what you need to hear as opposed to what you want to hear. From organising calls, editing of key documents, or training for video interviews, their technology platform-led approach makes everything smooth and efficient.

“Responsive and patient”

Admits To Columbia, Yale & Georgetown

Class of 2023

I spoke to a few top consultants - and after significant discussions with each I narrowed down on LilacBuds. I worked with Preyash and I can vouch now that he is head and shoulders above his peers when it comes to preparing an applicant for the Master's admissions process.

Initially, I couldn't clearly articulate my goals so Preyash took the time upfront to understand my work and academic experiences and did a great job of helping me narrate my story.

Best Mentor Ever!!

Admitted to London Business School

Class of 2024

LilacBuds' team helped me determine my best-fit schools, and the most compelling themes and stories that I should highlight from my background and work experience in my essays. This helped me write persuasive and successful essays and receive interview invites. They have a strong alumni network. I was connected with an LBS and Wharton alum for mock interview prep, which helped me to know what these schools are looking for in a candidate.
