Who We Are
Collegify Mentors are carefully selected, not just for their exposure and industry knowledge, but also for their ability to interact with young adults as guides, teachers, and coaches. We not only ensure that you find your ‘Best Fit’ B-School, but also match you to your Best Fit’ Mentor who will be your primary point of contact throughout the process for ease of access and coordination. There will also be a Secondary Mentor available to give you a wider perspective whenever required.
We conduct an in-depth analysis of the student’s professional trajectory and career goals to determine whether an MBA is the ideal way forward. We also present the student with a roadmap and tentative timeline that they should follow to achieve their academic, career and personal goals.
GMAT Test Prep
The GMAT plays a key role in the B-school application process. At Collegify, we provide one-on-one coaching for GMAT prep, which allows students to identify their strengths and areas of improvement and follow a customized test-taking strategy. Our faculty is equipped with industry experience spanning over a decade. Their guidance and constant reviews help students maximize their potential.
Resume Building / Profile Development
While relevant work experience and good GMAT scores are an important part of an effective MBA application, a student must also showcase a strong well-rounded profile to make it to the top B-schools around the world. Collegify evaluates a student’s resume and provides expert recommendations to help them improve and strengthen their profile undertaking additional responsibilities at work, switching companies, taking on community service or subscribing to additional academic courses, both online and otherwise.
Choice of B-School
At Collegify, we employ a very scientific and logical approach when creating the B-School shortlists to ensure that it complements the student’s profile, career goals, preferred area of specialization and probable field of employment post MBA. We also consult several rankings and other resources to determine the credibility of the chosen B-schools and ROI.
Students’ resumes often flow into several pages, which is against the one-page resume norm of B-schools. We guide them on first sifting information and discerning their achievements and unique aspects. Further, we edit the resume several times till it perfectly and aptly reflects the student’s key achievements and experiences, both within and beyond the workplace, without spilling over the one-page limit.
Essay Ideation and Editing
B-school essays are a crucial medium to showcase one’s experiences, learning and ideas. Writing essays and expressing one’s thoughts in words is also one of the biggest challenges faced by B-school applicants. However, B-school application essays often lack clarity of thought and structure, belie poor writing skills, offer conflicting narratives or simply duplicate the resume. Collegify conducts extensive essay ideation sessions and helps students create essays that retain their personal style, while serving as effective narratives.
Choice of referees and drafting Letters of Recommendation
Letters of Recommendation substantiate a student’s strengths, potential for graduate studies and contribution to the organizations they have worked in. We at Collegify, guide students to help them select the most effective referees. Students sometimes have to draft these letters on behalf of their referees and in such situations, we help them create professional Letters of Recommendation that best exemplify their strengths and achievements.
Application forms are extensive and require various details ranging from a student’s personal details to internship responsibilities. Every piece of information needs to be validated through relevant documents, which are uploaded in the application form. At Collegify, we check each form to ensure flawless and seamless submission.
Interviews are an integral part of the PG application process as they provide Interviewers an estimation of the student’s personality, communication skills and verifies their identity of the interviewee against their claims in the application. Collegify organizes numerous mock interview sessions to prepare students to field challenging questions, rebuttals and offers further guidance on their demeanour and delivery to help them ace their interviews.
