There are many benefits to timing your practice, including:
He has been quite a fixture here on GMAT Club for quite a while: members/member-15601.html Has over 1,500 posts but has not been as actively involved since leaving Accepted a few years ago.
Thanks for the link. Even though he posted often in the evaluation section, I can't seem to find reviews. I'm thinking of working with him on my applications this year. Seems like he'd be a busy guy and I'm not sure if my essays would get sufficient attention from him.
Unfortunately this doesn't quite fit here, but I'm hoping to add some insight in to who might be the worst. Hopefully this will help someone not make the same mistake I did by choosing MyMBAAdmit (http://www.mymbaadmit.com/) run by Khyati Soparkar. She even has the GMATClub icon linked, which I mistakenly took as an endorsement.
I worked directly with Khyati, who provided little beyond simple grammatical edits. Her comments where so shallow and generic that I ultimately hired another consultant to help out. In addition,Khyati would consistently claim to over-deliver on deadlines when at best she provided comments after about 3 days. Her services were absolutely not worth it. She focuses on being low cost, and that certainly comes with low quality. Unlike other consultants who make admissions consulting their full time mission, Khyati evidently had a tremendous challenge in making enough time to help me out. I'll keep this short but please feel free to pm me with any questions you might have.
Hey nothingelsematters: I really can't say too much or comment about what went down because I am not sure exactly what happened (i.e. anonymous comments.) However, I'll take you at your word and apologize for not meeting an expectation that I laid out. As hard as it is to hear your feedback, I will learn from it. In case you don't see this, I'll PM you as well. Respectfully, Paul Lanzillotti _________________
I definitely looked around at all the big ones out there. Even got a few free consults.
Out of all of them, Essay Snark has been the absolute most helpful. This comes with a couple caveats. They're a little more casual in their commentary... and they can be absolutely BRUTAL. But I'd rather go through someone looking over my essays and saying "No, rewrite this" than having an essay company serve me some "oh, this is nice, here are a few suggestions to clean up your grammar". You have to be thick-skinned to go through with them, but they got me to Michigan and I couldn't be more excited about it.
Hi all, planning to apply this year or next to a MBA school. Has anyone used anyone from mbaapplicants - John or Adam? Their website seems very impressive and informative but cannot find them much on other sources.
I only worked with one company and so can only speak to them but I interfaced with a lot of people at SBC and every single interaction was extremely professional and positive. Now the results...I am going to Stanford. I also was admitted to 2 other top schools and received one scholarship. I was not admitted to Wharton. So I hope that this was helpful - it is my way of saying thank you to Stacy Blackman Consulting and Fiona and hopefully helping those of you who are at the beginning stages of this process.
I won't waste time writing a similar long winded review but I have to say my experience with Stacy Blackman Consulting was very similar to that of tenisprox. They run a really great service and are professionals all around. I can answer more specific questions if anyone wants to send a message. I am going to Columbia.
I decided to share my 2 cents on this topic. Feel free to PM me to check credibility or get more details.
I applied only to my first choice – Columbia – and got admitted in 1st round. I worked with Aringo on my application and was very happy with my consultant. She had extensive background in application writing and had a lot of experience with candidate with a background similar to mine (that's actually how they chose the right consultant for me).
She was able to walk me through this long and complex process, and made it very structured and clear. She worked with other clients at the time but always made me feel like a VIP client, with amazing responsiveness. She helped me take my essays to the next level and made me work hard to bring the best out of me. When the interview invitations arrived, her help in preparation was also great.
The only down side was the price, and the fact I had to pay by the hour, since they didn't offer comprehensive school packages at the time. Nevertheless, I was happy with the final result and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for admission consultants.

It felt like the odds were against me for getting into business school, especially with an unconventional background, inconsistent career history, lower GMAT score, unemployment gap, questionable letters of recommendation, etc. Yet, Tyler @ Tyler Cormney Consulting was able to help me tell a cohesive story that really seemed to represent who I was and not some cookie-cutter applicant. This story not only gave me a clear direction for my essays but also thoroughly prepared me for my interviews and my resume. After meeting Tyler, my doubts of getting into b-school quickly faded.
Tyler's gift goes beyond story-telling. He’s an incredible coach.
So many positive reviews for Tyler from 1st time posters. I hope the reviews are honest/real.
I am very grateful for the support of my clients. It's often the case that for me and other admissions consultants reviewed on this thread that former clients who are active members of GMAT Club prefer to post reviews under a new account to protect their anonymity. All of the reviews at http://gmatclub.com/reviews/ have been verified as authentic by GMAT Club's moderators. I hope that helps to put your mind at ease.

I worked with Aringo and got admitted to all the schools I applied to. This is my first post here, feel free to PM me to check or ask questions. A while ago I started the process of preparing applications for universities, with the intention to apply to 5 top schools in Round 1. Thanks to Aringo’s great help, the quick responsiveness and the terrific professional skill, I formulated a strategy and built a “plan of action” within a short period of time. When the interview invitations arrived, Aringo’s help in preparation was also great.
In the end I was accepted to all the universities I wanted (Harvard, Wharton, MIT, Columbia, NYU) including scholarships at Columbia and NYU. Aringo's help was simply amazing, and I know that without it I would not have gotten to where I did (the year before, when I used a different consulting company, I applied to a number of universities and was rejected from them all.)
