Quote from a piece of work which is quite old (from 2004 I think) but still a very good read if you're thinking about applying to b-school:

Getting into a top 5 MBA program

"...admissions consultants are invariably not the kind of people that a candidate to a top school wants advice from. Most did not ever attend a top business school themselves, and those few that did were essentially not successful enough to find reasonable jobs afterwards – and thus got into the essay editing business. We encourage you to get someone else to look at your essays and make suggestions, but pick someone who isn’t being paid on the basis of how much of your time they take, or how many changes they suggest you make. Perhaps there’s nothing wrong with your essays at all!"

You should, I have the same experience, and I bet I know which company you are talking about, and I guess you have a female consultant, I think generally I feel that the female consultant has less enthusiasm with students then male consultant does.

You can P M me if you can let me know who is your company and the consultant.
