SBC is a no brainer. I got into a top program after working with one of their consultants, who was beyond instrumental in my application process. She worked with my on my essays, helped do research on the schools, and the fact that she was a CBS grad helped tremendously since she was familiar with the student organizations. Don't think twice about it, it's an investment that will pay off 10000x over. We are all incredibly busy with work/personal lives and working with someone who knows the ins and outs of admissions will save you so much time. I know for a fact I wouldn't have gotten admitted to CBS without SBC.
