Not every one can afford consultants at 2500$ and beyond. Even if they can, there is so much of confusion on what he/she will get from that consultant. We have an essay vault feature that can potentially help a lot of applicants. How ever, it is obvious that a lot of our members who go on to attend the top programs do not post their essays. Honestly, what is the incentive for these top performers to share their story? We all know that the essays in the books that are sold are a joke. They are so out of reality.

Why can't We have an army of our GC admission consultants who are either in the top programs or graduated from the top programs, (ofcourse, we cannot have those who have a conflict of interest such as ones on the admissions committee etc) would like to mentor new applicants and also make an extra buck. As a pre condition, all mentors will post their essays. we can have other meaningful requirements or preconditions for both mentor and mentoree groups . Applicants will chose from our consultants and possibly even rate them. We can get to the finer details on how to implement.

You get the idea?? I can write on and on but I think we have a lot of untapped potential among our top contributors. What do you guys think?

I have posted this in the suggestion thread, and reposting here:

There is nothing that stops anyone from posting in the Buy/Sell/Do or Admissions consultants forum right now and offer their services openly. It can't be anything that GMAT Club can get involved into though - we don't have time/resources to act as a middle person or to endorse/quality control - these things are very subjective.
