hi, just wanted to see if anyone is using admission consultants? i'm tempted to have them critique my essays but frankly the prices seem way too high. whats the consensus on this forum? are they worth it? is one better than the others? etc?
input is appreciated.

general consensus here is that people don't use it.

Young gun, It depends In which group you are--
Like Indian, IT, male or
Finance services/Investment Bank
These groups are normally oversubscribed so if you want to differentiate yourself from others, you can try to admission consultant.

IB maybe for two reasons:

1. Very little time to do applications
2. Makes enough money that the intial initial investment of \$2500 for an admissions consultant still generates positive NPV discounted at 35%

Young_Gun,

This has been discussed numerous times here. I suggest checking out this section (http://www.gmatclub.com/forum/123-t58747) of the Knowledge Vault..

General consensus is, you can get a lot of good advice on this forum and elsewhere, but some consultants do provide worth while services.
