We cover all the bases when it comes to your business school applications. Moreover, we understand that each person has unique needs and objectives. While some of our clients want to leave no stone unturned, others prefer to focus on a specific aspect of the admissions process. It’s up to you.
The list below is a sampling of the many services we offer our clients:
Business School Selection: Too many people put the cart before the horse. Before you can start the application process, we recommend that you take your time evaluating the business schools that are most suited to your skills and objectives. A great fit for a colleague might not be the right school for you. We can help you explore all of your options (and there are plenty), whether it is a campus versus executive MBA program or a full-time versus part-time curriculum. Moreover, we will give you an unbiased opinion of your prospects.
Admissions Strategies: As your consultant gets to know you, you will work together to plan and execute a customized admissions strategy. This strategy will focus on mitigating your weaknesses and highlighting your strengths.
Essays: Your essays should reveal the real you. While we are more than happy to address grammar, punctuation and sentence structure, we won’t write the essays for you. Not only is it unethical, but it won’t increase your chances of admission either. Secondly, only you can best tell your unique story in adequate detail. Moreover, we can help you draft an outline, but we won’t write that for you either. Sadly, there have been instances where such outlines were shared by many applicants to the same school with disastrous results. However, we will work with you to draw out your accomplishments and your ‘story,’ so that your essays set you apart from the competition in a very unique way. Our insider’s knowledge will also help you cover relevant questions like “Why do you choose to pursue an MBA?”, “Why now?” and “How can you contribute to our school?”
Interviews: We admit it. Admission interviews can be nerve-wracking for all of us. We’re here to allay your fears and help you prepare as fully as possible. You’ll learn what to expect, how to prepare, what to say, how to say it and more. In some instances, we will conduct a mock interview between you and another consultant to simulate a real interview (remember, they’ve actually sat on admissions committees) and advise where you can improve your performance. We intentionally choose an impartial consultant (not your regular consultant) to conduct the mock interview, so you gain a real sense of the process.
Career Counseling: You want to make the most of your time, efforts and investment. AdmissionsConsultants knows the MBA process inside and out. We know how to go through the applications and acceptance process, and beyond. We can give insight into what specific firms look for in an MBA graduate, so you can make the most of your degree after graduation.
Pre-admissions Consulting: Timing is everything. Perhaps now isn’t the right time for an MBA. We work with individuals who want to position themselves now, so they can maximize their MBA admissions prospects a few years down the road. We’ll talk to you about job changes, networking opportunities, extracurricular activities, and more, and how they can bolster your success later.
Miscellaneous MBA Admissions Services: We believe all applicants deserve the services of a firm that can cover all aspects of the admissions process, so nothing is left to chance. In addition to the host of services we offer, we also provide assistance with the following:
GMAT test preparation – To re-take or not to re-take? That is the question.
Letters of Reference Guidance – The dying art of good reference letter writing and how to revive it.
Moral Support – No one should have to go it alone. We’re here for you! Like the postal service, be it sun, rain, sleet or snow, you can be sure that AdmissionsConsultants delivers on its promises.
