Hey there clubbers, I've been interviewing a few admissions consultants and have found a few questions useful in not only guiding our time but also make it a positive and educational phone call for me. My goal is to always learn something after each initial consultation.
The list of questions that I use are below. Would love to hear what questions you use!
I think there was another post on GMAT Club with good questions to ask but I can't find it now.
Questions Regarding Your Application
1.) What are the top 2 things applicants need to do well to succeed, aside from essays?
2.) Top 2 common application pitfalls
3.) Strengths and Weaknesses of my profile
4.) What's quickest way to do research on schools beyond visiting?
5.) What factors figure into deciding which schools to apply in R1 or R2?
6.) What's one improvement you'd suggest to my resume?
Questions Regarding The Firm
7.) If I hire your firm, who will I be working with and what are their qualifications?
8.) In what area of the admissions process does you or your firm differentiate yourselves?
9.) What's one competitor you admire and why?
