Expert's post
GMAT Club:
I wanted to get this in front of anyone applying for round 1 of the 2011-2012 season. This promo is good until 5/31/2011.

For any member purchasing a Full School Engagement, additional discounting will be applied in the following cases and if payment is made in full:

    Purchase three schools during your initial engagement, you will receive a fourth school at no additional charge.
    Purchase four schools during your initial engagement, you will receive a fifth school at no additional charge.
    Purchase five schools during your initial engagement, you will receive a sixth and seventh school at no additional charge.

The Full School Engagement includes the following areas:

    School Selection and Candidacy Evaluation – This is a discussion that centers on the appropriate MBA programs to which the candidate should apply. “Appropriate” indicates programs that make sense for the client’s background and strengths. Sometimes the Client “knows” what schools they want to apply to. However a discussion is warranted to draw out exactly how well the client is suited to the culture and profile of the desired school.
    “MBA Acceptance Equation” - This is a discussion of the Client’s current work experience, academic performance, personal passions and philanthropic pursuits, school selection, and logical fit with their goals. It will be positioned from an MBA admissions committee point of view.
    Personal Branding – This is a discussion that describes exactly who a client is as an applicant to the various business schools. It is used to guide the client, maintains consistency and creates a “personal brand” for use when crafting essays. While many of the components are contained in this document, this discussion directly applies your background to the selected schools.
    Essays – A dissection of school specific essay questions for the client. AACG details what the essay questions are really asking beyond face value. After a discussion(s) regarding the intricacies of each essay prompt, the client knows what points they need to hit on to craft a persuasive essay. They also know the correct structure in which to craft their essay. The client with their AACG consultant will go through several iterations/drafts. The drafts are then reviewed by other MBA students and alumni who critique the essays for content, grammar, style and structure.
    Resume – A business school resume will be prepared in order to maintain a consistent client message. This type of resume is not the same as a resume that one would use when applying for a position. AACG assists the client in placing their relevant experience into terms and a format that is readily digestible by the Admissions Committee.
    Letters of Recommendation – Guidance on how to generate letters of recommendation is provided based on client strengths and weaknesses. AACG describes what elements a recommender will need to address in order to provide an appropriate recommendation. The client and consultant will also discuss who to approach, how and with what documentation in order to facilitate the process. This guidance provides a starting point for your recommender’s objective recommendation of you.
    Review of Final Submission Package – A review each client’s final submission package in the final days before submission to an MBA program is in order. This ensures that all parts of the application are consistent, in effect making sure all the t’s are crossed and the i’s dotted. The potential to drop the ball here is huge. What may seem like a trivial application question can be a test in consistency across all parts of the application.
    School Interaction Guidance - AACG assists the client with scheduling visits and interaction with the school. This includes information sessions, specific class visits, interaction with alumni. This puts the client’s name out there and in the minds of the Admissions Committee members.
    Mock Interview – AACG consultants were former admission interviewers for top MBA programs, consulting firms and investment banks. AACG will conduct a mock interview with the client, provide guidance on the questions and then provide nuanced feedback on the client’s response and presence.
    Waitlist Guidance – Should the client be waitlisted at any of their programs, AACG follows up with guidance on additional recommendations, school interaction, communication timelines and protocol. Every effort is made to ensure the client moves to the top of the waitlist, off of the waitlist and into the program.

Respectfully,
Paul Lanzillotti

I know this is an old post, but I love how no one commented that these two offers are entirely redundant with each other. Great marketing!

hello212,

Maybe no one commented on that, because A) why would someone take time out of their day to make nothing more than a rude comment, and B) you are incorrect.

It is not redundant.

The offers were:

3+1 (so a 4-school package for the price of a 3-school Package)
4+1 (a 5-School package for a price of a 4-School Package)

Normally I would not stoop down to respond to something like this, but I also didn't feel like leaving that hanging out there as the last word on something that was actually a pretty helpful offer for some of our early bird clients. We will likely run a similar promotion next year as all parties benefited (early planning for consultants of our firm and more time to work on applications + financial benefits for our clients).

Respectfully,

Paul Lanzillotti

Hi Paul,

I see that this offer was only valid if I had signed up for consultation before May, 2011. Do you have any other current offers ?

Thanks,

Hi Paul,

Do you have other promotions upcoming, especially for early birds (since it is now June and the due dates are in October)?

I had the worst experience with Paul.
Spent my entire savings for stories that were fraudulent and copied from other applicants. No matter how early you sign up for his service, you will be submitting your applications on the deadline date.
