AdmissionsConsultants/Veritas: mba app consultants??? [#permalink] New post 23 Apr 2008, 16:06
Hi,

I am just wondering if anybody here has some experience with one of the many application consulting companies out there. Are there any goods ones? Are they worth it? (They seem very pricy!).

Thanks.

Foodstamp,

I think most on here are of the mind that resources available here and other websites, in addition to a book or two, would be a sufficient alternative. However, I believe Stacy Blackman and MBA Exchange to be very highly regarded. I have spoken to both and found them to be extremely informative.

I personally think you don't really NEED consultants. Save the money for campus visits and other things. I came from a non-traditional background with almost no real-life MBA friends or support, and learned EVERYTHING through GMAT Club help and spending hours reading things here. If you contribute to good discussion on here, many of the current students will be willing to give you a hand by reading your essays for you, especially in the summer before school starts for the 2008-ers.

Hope that helps!
