Best Consultants at lower prices for Indian applicants [#permalink] New post 24 Jul 2013, 11:20
Hi,

I've been looking for an efficient consultant to help me with my US b school applications.

All the consultants reviewed here are from US and turn out to be too costly for aspirants like me who come from a developing country. With the crazy exchange rates, I find it way too difficult to be able to pay the huge expenses and get their help.

I was very happy to see that Aringo did offer me some discounts considering that I'm from India. But still due to the exchange rates, the prices they quoted turned out to be out of reach for a non-rich Mba aspirant like me.

Are there any such good consultants who are ready to offer quality services at affordable prices to aspirants from India??

Please let me know about any such services available with any good consultancy.
Also share your reviews about Indian consultants who can offer quality services on US b school application help.

Cheers!

Perhaps this should be renamed to be "Cheap Admissions Consultants" since the origin of the applicant does not seem to matter except in the sense of the economic inequality.

Part of the issue you are going to run into with this logic, is ROI. Anybody who is good will be expensive and it is pretty hard to figure out who out of the cheap ones is good enough. Hard job. If you are short on money, I would recommend you use books and supplement it with an occasional essay review. best-mba-books-99173.html?fl=menu

Thanks a lot for your suggestions BB. I will also look forward to get some help from one of these books. But consideribg the time frame I'm left with for my applications, I'm a little concerned about whether referring the books would be fast enough.

Cheers!

Thats good enough to hire consultants in India.. Every metropolitan city has a couple of decent (yes, unfortunately they are not the 'best ones') consultants. You may want to visit a few and talk to them and see their work/their track record before hiring them.
I met one, but was pissed off to know that they were even ready to write essay and recommendations and hand those over to me and recommenders.
