But... I am getting ahead of Myself..

Let's start with you...


Getting an MBA is the fastest way to grow your career

.... But I'm willing to bet that you already know that (Cause you are here)

Whether you wish to grow your career or get out of a miserable job, you know that doing an MBA is the key to get rid of all your problems.

So What's the hold up?

You've got enough questions and problems to fill up an Amazon warehouse and no one to help you answer them.

How should I shortlist my schools? 

I have a lower GMAT, how do I counter that? 

What if I don't have a leadership Experience? 

What If I can't get my manager to give me an LOR? 

How do I tell my story without any Extracurriculars? 

But the worst part? Dr Google and YouTube and GMATClub has all these information but you don't know what to believe and what is right? The idea of an expensive consultant also scares you. You don't want to break your bank. 

Week after week you are left exactly where you started wondering if you will ever be able to complete your applications on time and with quality. 

MBA_X which path to take.png

And sooner or later your head starts filling up with totally believable (but untrue) thoughts that would sabotage your aim of cracking your dream B-school.

Let's put a pin in some of the doubts holding your back

Big Doubt #1

I don't have any Leadership Experience? What is so unique about me for top schools to accept me? 

After years of crafting successful applications.. here is what I know to be true.. 

You don't need to have formal "Leadership Experience" in order to have Leadership Stories. Leadership is showcased in our everyday actions. You just need to tell it the right way. 

Students of mine have received admits from the Top B-schools like HBS, Stanford, LBS without formal Leadership Experience.

The idea that you need to have huge Leadership Experience to have an admit from these Top Schools is a myth.


Big Doubt #2

My CGPA or my GMAT Score is low. I'll never get into the top Schools. 

Okay, I'm not going to lie to you by saying that these things don't matter. 

But.. These things are never seen in isolation. You need to be able to tell your story of what makes you unique and then justify these weaknesses in your profile. 

Again, to tell the story about my students, I've had plenty of students who didn't really had great scores but still made it into INSEAD, HEC Paris and so on.. 

It's totally doable. You just need to tell your story the right way..


Big Doubt #3

I don't have the time to do all the research and writing to apply to my dream B-school

Let's flip the script here. 

What If i told you that almost everyone is in the same boat as you.


Let me tell you, the belief that you need endless hours to craft a winning application is just that - a belief. 


What you really need is a focused, strategic approach to manage your time effectively. This means prioritizing tasks, breaking down the application process into manageable chunks and setting realistic deadlines for yourself. 

I have had many successful applicants who have navigated this journey before you, often juggling jobs, family responsibility and other commitments. 


Remember, quality trumps quantity every time.

Now, Slow your scroll for a sec..

Imagine what it would be like to finally crack your dream B-school.



Career Growth

Personal Growth

You would be getting into a phase of your career which you genuinely love and where you can see your growth potential being rewarded. 

You would be doing more than just growing into your career. You would get tools and network to start your own venture someday or just develop the confidence required to grow into any organization. 

Sound too good to be true?

It's not.

I know it because I have done it. 

And i have taught hundreds of other students too. 

But wait, have we offically met? 

Hi, I'm Nirvan Gandhi

The brain behind Applicant-X, your shortcut to navigating MBA admissions.


Picture this: a dreamer, set on joining a top B-school but put off by sky-high consultant fees and generic advice. That was me, before landing a spot at ISB and making my mark in media and communication, where I honed my storytelling skills.

Driven by my journey and the hurdles I overcame, I created Applicant-X to be your ally in the quest for B-school success, designed to offer guidance without restrictions. Having navigated the path myself, I'm here to help you do the same. Let's make your dream B-school a reality together.

Now Let's take this one step Further...

If you know anything about me, you know I am all about solving problems, and while in recent years I have helped 100s of students get into their dream B-schools, there was still one major challenge.

I am going to pick 12 candidates for my upcoming program Next cohort starts on 15TH June 2024. I am offering this at a fraction of the cost of what I would earlier offer my consulting services for. 

But wait, that's not it, it's not just for 1-3-5 schools. It's for Top 30 B-schools. 

(Told you, I'm always looking to solve problems)


No more Googling

Just a proven system and all my knowledge to get you into your dream B-school. 

If you are with me, now is the time to get excited because its about to be ALL yours.

In order to ensure that you don't have to pay as much and still retain the quality of your applications, Nirvan will conduct live sessions with 12 people. This number ensures that you get the personalization that you need whilst not emptying your wallet by paying TONS of money to pricey consultants.

Don't believe the methodology with which we teach will work? 

Many of the below students didn't either until they cracked their dream B-school.

Nirvan by far is the best consultant I've ever worked with. He is extremely patient which is important when you're banking on someone to get our story out while answering the school question too. He is very well versed with the kind of essays that get accepted which really helped me get my story out in the best way possible. 

Radhika Khandelwal (NYU Stern)

Applicant-X 's entire SOP around the B-school application preparation is shaped so well that no stone is left unturned. I would like to thank Nirvan and Applicant-X for their guidance throughout my application journey and would wholeheartedly recommend their services to anyone looking for an admit at a top B-school.

Yash Mohan (ISB)

Applicant X truly guided me to put my best foot forward, be it through the essays, the LORs or the resume. Their focus on a value-driven approach for each school works wonders.

Nishtha Yadav (Columbia)

I initially embarked on my MBA application journey feeling completely lost, but with Nirvana as my guide, clarity emerged step by step. Nirvana demonstrated a genuine commitment to my application, treating it as if it were his own, ultimately resulting in my acceptance to a top 10 school.  I highly recommend him for anyone looking for a consultant to help them with their applications , you just can't go wrong with Nirvana!
