I bought few guides - Stern and Yale

Don't waste money on them , as the info is available on the Schools website .

I don't think that Adcom gets hard on when they see data that is already on the school website..Try to go beyond the school website - Meet and talk to Students/Alumni and quote from your interactions...

not that useful. It's better to post here and ask the B-school ambassadors to get better info. :)

i have read that the clear admit guides are OK.

maybe one of the mods should move this thread since it does not relate to any specific school.

what is a clear admit guide? My deduction from some of your comments is a school specific guide that explains what the school is all about, and what they're looking for in a "target" applicant?

I bought the Clear Admit school guide and found it disappointing. It's just a summary of publicly available information. I was looking for some insights, but what I got was very general information.

if you are busy and can't be bothered / don't have time to research, then I'd say that they are helpful. But if you are willing to invest some research time, then do that instead.

Also, I see that they charge $200 dollars per hour for essay editing! does anyone else think this is ridiculously extravagant?!

That's actually about average, maybe a bit below. I've seen a couple $250/hr essay services.

Clearadmit school guides are waste of money, Vault guides are gold. But, indeed, the platinum is gmatclub.
