What does a good admissions consultant do for you?
We advise and support you through your application. We will help you avoid red flags, craft your application strategy and work hand-in-hand with you. You will need to take responsibility for the process and put in the work and research time.
Here are some benefits to having a good admissions consultant in your corner:
A good admissions consultant is someone you can be honest with about your hopes and fears. And someone who can give you good advice if you listen. We can also give you the off-the-record info about business schools that can help you make decisions around what will be one of the biggest investments of your life.
Many of us hate to brag and fear coming across as arrogant. But the admissions process requires that you highlight your accomplishments. It can be very helpful to get the balance right with another person listening – and sometimes pointing out achievements you didn’t realize were so impressive.
You might be surprised how personal and introspective the process of telling your story actually is. Your admissions essays need to highlight your character, your brains, heart and courage. Talking through ideas can be immensely helpful. Talking to someone also helps to keep you feeling supported and on track.
Many CVs are filled with jargon and acronyms, and lack the context that can make your experience shine.
By the time you hit the admissions interview, you should have really thought through why you want to study, why you want to go to a particular university, why you want to do this now, and how it will help you achieve your goals.
What a good admissions consultant does not do:
Write your essays for you
We collaborate with you, to tell your story. A quality application is authentic – and that can’t be done without your input and self-reflection.
Guarantee your place at a university
Run from any admissions consultant who gives you this guarantee. Also, make sure your admissions consultant is not getting a kick-back from a university to recruit students. This creates a conflict of interest where your best interests might not be prioritized.
