Perhaps you are reading into the process too much. While I'm sure consultants can help your application, If you can't effectively apply to business school do you really belong in business school?

Every school in the world wants an incoming class to be filled with:
*Intelligent People
*Driven People
*Unique People - Schools love this one,If you were in the circus now is the time to share
*Diversity, the more unusual the background, the better
*Humble - Don't be arrogant or cocky
*People who will make a lot of money and will give back

There is no rocket science involved in applying to business school. You cant change who you are, what your grades are, where you worked etc... Work with what you have, put everything you have accomplished in an intelligent coherent application and you will be fine. REMEMBER - the person reading your application is JUST another PERSON. They eat and sleep just like you do. There's mo magic pill. Hope this helps your application.

Applying to an MBA school is hard and I know it firsthand!. Applicants have to prepare the GMAT, write essays, get recommendation letters and prepare for tough interviews. Every year over 200,000 people from all around the world apply to MBA programs, and most of them don’t know how to prepare a good application. An exclusive group can afford spending 4 to 8 thousand dollars for an MBA counselor and get a competitive edge. Sadly today, this exclusive group accounts for most of the admitted students in top schools. We want to close this gap and democratize access to top MBA programs. For this reason we have created www.myMBACicle.com, a platform through which MBA applicants can access mentors who are second year students and alumni of the best MBA Schools at an affordable price. This is not only great for MBA applicants, but also for mentors, as they support democratize access to top universities while generating additional income. This platforms provides flexibility for mentors and incentivizes them to support anyone beyond their closest friends. We decided to start by focusing on the MBA market because we understand this market, and have a strong connections with both mentors and candidates.
