Success Stories


Gokul Nair, MBA – Full Tuition Waiver with Graduate Assistantship, Purdue University, USA

It was in 2011 that I became interested in pursuing an MBA from USA. I was a typical Indian Engineer with about 5 years of work experience in a fortune 200 and a telecom start up. I wrote my GMAT and got a decent score. Now is where the confusion all began and there were these tons of questions that I had no clear answers to…what do schools really want to see in an essay, how do I build a solid application package, how do I get selected for a scholarship/assistantship etc..

This is when I met ILM team, a promising young professionals who clearly understood my dilemma. The team spent a couple of hours with me even before I had signed up to know me better. After that they told me to prepare a brief write up about my experiences and on why I would like to pursue an MBA degree. What followed was a series of discussions and meetings, which eventually led to a solid working relationship.

Each member in ILM team has a in-depth understanding of US school requirements and is extremely good at bringing out the best in you. Unlike some essay writers, the writers in ILM team always want you to write your own essays – They probe deeper and ask you all the right questions that makes you subconsciously refine your content and make it more appealing and sell-able. They are also really apt at balancing portfolio of schools – Reach schools, Good schools and Easy schools. Such a balanced portfolio will enable an individual succeed with a higher probability.

I received an admit in 2012 to Foster School of Business (Seattle), University of Virginia with an 80% scholarship and Purdue University with a full time Graduate Assistantship. I chose to join Purdue and I am right now a global manager in a leadership development program with Whirlpool Corporation, USA.

Through our interactions, I found great mentors, guides and more importantly some great friends in ILM team. I would highly recommend their services.

I contacted ILM Prep in late 2015 in order to consult them for my graduate studies. I had no idea on a specific course or institution. My Counselor suggested a very realistic list of potential universities and I got admissions from every university I had applied to. My Counselor also helped me prepare for the various university interviews and made sure I was comfortable/prepared for the interviews. Would definitely recommend ILM to anyone in need of assistance with their university application process.

Kinshuk Sen – Under Graduate (UG), UC- LA, UIUC, USC

I approached ILM in 12th grade and it was very late to start with the application process. Though it was late, their team saw my case as a challenge. ILM team helped me do well in my SATs and helped me for the entire application process including the interview preparation. By the end of it, I had been accepted to most of the universities, and been offered a scholarship in a few as well! If I say I didn’t get to where I am today because of ILM, I’d be lying. ILM has a wonderful team with a master plan for everyone!
