I have read some reviews about a number of MBA Consulting companies. What do we need to do to know how to choose the right one for our needs?

This article http://poetsandquants.com/2015/05/16/class-2015-worlds-best-brightest-mbas/ has been made exactly a year ago. I just would like to know further/your opinion on how these MBA graduates were considered the world's best and brightest.

I am finally starting my MBA applications here in the US and I can say I am starting to feel the competition too. I just hope I will end up with the school I really dream to be a part of.

I would like to see what my score means - my chances at the top schools (free of charge).
I would like to hear how Aringo’s consulting services can improve my admission chances (you will fill out your details on the next page)
I would like both options.

I have seen these after completing the chances calculator in the
website and I am wondering how much will cost if one will be choosing the second and the third options.

Hi Michael... Who decides how much fee would they charge? How about the company? How much percentage goes to it or to the consultant?

[quote="Michael@VeritasPrep"]MBA consultants can do a lot to help the applicant, it really depends on what you need and your individual situation. To give you an idea, here is what I do with my clients.
-Game planning. Helping you figure out the right application strategy, goals, target schools.
-Essay brainstorming, edits and reviews
-Resume brainstorming, edits and reviews
-Recommender selection and prep
-Mock interviews
-School decision[/quote]

Thanks for this Michael. At least we now have the idea on what to expect when getting an MBA consultant.

Any news about ongoing MBA events and activities? Some schools are way too active with their monthly, weekly and even daily events.

Some schools celebrated their MBA alumni homecoming recently. Gatherings like these are just awesome. But then if events are done on a daily basis, I guess that would be quite tiring.

The Aringo chances calculator is an excellent tool. These kinds of calculators aren't intended to be the last word on the subject, but more like a baseline reality check: if you are seeing a "stretch" for a school you are really in love with, that's telling you that you have to go above and beyond to strengthen any area that can be improved. For example, you can't do anything about your undergraduate GPA, but if it's working against you, that means you have to crank up the GMAT and perhaps do additional coursework to demonstrate analytical skills in the classroom.

I strongly recommend that kind of reality check to my clients, but EARLY in your application preparation process -- not the night before submission!
Good luck,
Margaret Strother
