Hi folks (especially Indian applicants),
guys can you share any idea about the available Admission Consulting companies in India ?

Has anyone ever used any of such?

Much appreciate any thought.

P.S: Souvik/MacFauz/Marcab and other GC legends from India-please come up with your insights on the same.

@bb-It would be great if you have anything to share on this!

IMO, the location of the consultant should not be of much concern.. All of the work is going to be done either over the phone or by e-mail (most will be by e-mail).. I mean.. People are even conducting their interviews over skype... There is not much requirement for face to face interaction... You will only have to see which consultants are genuine and which ones are scams..

Dude,
You got me wrong.. Please allow me to clear the confusion!

I would like to know whether there are any Admission Consulting companies (as you say genuine/solid) in India...? Location of the consultant is not that of a constraint really(because it occurs over skype/phone as you've rightly mentioned)...Rather it's the high charge of the US consultants...So,just thinking whether any Indian applicants from the Club have used any Admission Consulting companies from India (basic assumption is that the Indian consultants who are MBAs from top US/European schools, will definitely charge less than their US counterparts..!)..

I hope it's clear to you now! So, can you give any insights on the same?

Other Folks-Much appreciate your thoughts also on this...!

Were you able to build a list based on your independent research?

Keen to see if our liteel team figured anywhere on the radar.

Well I am six months too late I guess!
I think MBA admission consulting is an extremely expensive business considering top dogs from US.
However it depends on your school choices, and how independent as a person you generally are.
There are certain price sensitive consultants out there but most top US consultants charge almost similarly.

I do think, it boils down to how regular your consultant is to get back to you, answer your queries and how he takes your input to give his/her feedback. I do think price is a HUGE issue, but you should be aware first. If your consultant gives you brand new information about your target school that you did not know, you are not on the right track.

Often hiring a consultant gives you the leeway to neglect extensive research that is ABSOLUTELY necessary. It's like the GMAT really. Just getting a course from MGMAT or Veritas Prep does not guarantee a 760.

That was a long rant. Hope you get the answer somewhere in it

Let me know if you need anything.

Hey Souvik,

Brother, I though I would share my opinion in a couple of lines and see what you think...
I think there are a few genuine ad cons in India, but a vast majority are running a scam, I would say >50% ..I have no data to back it up, but Its just my personal feeling, an opinion that I formed after talking to half a dozen of them!! what is your personal opinion?
On the other hand, Having been through this grueling process myself, I am thinking of starting my own firm too, not a scam i promise haha

I could not agree more. I have seen the majority of Indian admission consultants having no idea what they are talking about.
I cannot take names though. I can see how Sameer (MBA Crystal Ball) is great and its pretty evident with the hard work he puts in.
Reviews make or break an admission consultant. And by reviews I mean those that are verified. Not the ones floating around a website saying "I got into Stanford with a 600 GMAT, all thanks to the nobody-has-heard-about consultant.

I wish you all the luck if you start your own firm.

I am sharing my experience with GyanOne Consultancy Service, India.

I was new to B-School application process and it was bit daunting experience for me. Besides, I failed to score high on the GMAT as I had hoped so I was unsure whether to apply for the B-school of my choice (IMD) or not. I sought initial consultation with 3 consulting firms and finally chosen GyanOne. Today, I am very happy that I made the right decision.

I requested for a consultant who understand my profile and who truly believes that My profile has potential to make it to my target B-School. It was very important for me that Consultant would be comfortable working with an applicant who has no prior experience in applying to any B-School.

I worked with Rishabh from the beginning. Rishabh shown great interest in my profile and advised me in developing my personal brand. He was highly professional, prompt, and went over and beyond to guide me during the entire application process. I honestly feel that I received more help than I had expected for from Rishabh. Rishabh helped me to structure my thoughts and express it powerfully to convey my key strengths throughout the application process. Rishabh was was genuinely interested in my successes and failures. He made every effort to understand me and my journey to where I am today. This helped me to highlight correct elements of my profile. Many thanks to Rishabh for his timely help, I got accepted to the B-School of top choice - IMD.

I’m so extremely happy and pleased working with Rishabh in this process. Having come from a non-prestigious university, with only a modest GMAT Score, I thought I would not be able to attend the top most institution in general management and leadership development. Rishabh’s honest feedback, support, and through preparation were invaluable.

I am totally convinced that I would not have had the same successes in being admitted to my choice of school if I hadn’t worked with Rishabh on this application. Rishabh is truly genius professional and it was truly a pleasure to work with him.

I would definitely recommend Rishabh and GyanOne to anyone looking for the outstanding support and guidance in their the MBA application process. If you are looking to get into top B-School and are looking for a consultant who is really care about your success then go for Rishabh
