I'm in the process of applying to B-schools & researching some admission consultants along with their various offerings is quite difficult. I presume most of us would be going through the same, it would be nice for people to write reviews of the admission consultants they know or opted for their services.
Hope to get some reviews soon
You'll find reviews posted by GC members here: Best Admissions Consulting Companies
Admissions consulting follows a virtual model internationally. So you don't need to be in the same city to make use of their services.
For instance, though I am based in Mumbai, we work with applicants across the globe using the same virtual model.
Ditto for many of the consultants reviewed on the thread posted above. They might be based in the US, but their clients are spread across many countries.
The criteria for shortlisting the best admission consultants should be their capability, credibility and how effectively they can identify your strengths/weaknesses so that a personalized application strategy can be defined.
Good luck in finding the right team.
