Admissions cosultants

I do not see any Admissions consultants reviews on BeatTheGmat. I checked reviews on Gmatclub. All consultants are rated around 5 star! This is unrealistic. Can someone suggest which is the best source to use?

Hi there! Great point and I echo what Melody said earlier, but also wanted to point you to a post that we added on Quora a while ago that's a fairly candid and transparent overview of admissions consultants and some thoughts on how you can sift through the marketing and figure out what may be best for you. Hope this helps!

Hey there,

I totally agree that "fit" is one of the most important factors to consider when looking for a consultant. Take advantage of the free consultation that almost all consultants provide and ask them questions about their working style - for example, if you are more of a jump on a call kinda person and your consultant wants to work exclusively through emails, this might be a disconnect and lead to unnecessary stress during the stressful application time. You also want to look for someone who is willing to take a personal interest in your applications and is able to provide you with critical feedback.

Another great place to look for potential consultants is ask your friends or family in good business schools if they used the services of a consultant and would recommend someone.

Good luck! Feel free to reach out to us for a free consultation Smile - https://www.taterways.com/free-consultation
