Your ISB dream comes true with StepVue

"It's not easy to get into ISB, more so when you don't have a good GMAT score. I scored at 660 and wasn't sure whether I would be able to make the cut at ISB. The moment I signed up with StepVue for my ISB prep, I realized I was in good hands. The way the entire ISB application process is dealt is simply amazing. Everything is so structured and smooth. Not only I got more confident approaching the interview, I got so much clarity on my career goals that helped me secure an admit at ISB."
