Admission to a Selective MBA Program is Extremely Competitive
Last year, Columbia Business School claimed that over 80% of their applicants had the academic ability, as demonstrated by their GMAT scores and GPAs, to handle their coursework. You will not get into a top-ranked MBA program just on the basis of a GMAT score and undergraduate transcript.
The 'median' (50 percentile) applicant at a top business school presents a pretty solid candidacy. He or she has a good GMAT score and GPA. The same can be said of the work experience and extracurricular activities. He or she also has well-written essays that contain decent reasons for why an MBA, why that particular MBA program, diversity, future career goals, etc. He or she will also present good essays to answer such tricky questions as the biggest professional failure and ethical dilemma.
This applicant will always be rejected though. It is extremely difficult to imagine a scenario where applications will decline to the point that the top business schools would ever accept 50% of their applicants.
Let AdmissionsConsultants® Be Your Competitive Advantage
The admissions committees at the selective programs are always looking for reasons to reject applicants. Quite simply, they just receive too many highly-qualified applications each year.
Successful applicants will:
- Have strong overall themes, or strategies, for their applications including well thought-out reasons for wanting an MBA, wanting an MBA now, attending a particular business school, future career goals, etc.
- Demonstrate they have thoroughly researched the schools to which they are applying and have realistic expectations for their business school educations.
- Successfully differentiate themselves from the other applicants along multiple dimensions and pack a powerful 'wow' factor into their applications.
All of the MBA consultants at AdmissionsConsultants have admissions committee experience from a top MBA program*. These consultants will provide you with professional and comprehensive admissions consulting services. They will coach you on your optimal admission strategy, help you select the business schools that are best suited to your needs and future career goals, brainstorm with you for essay topics, proof your essays, consult you on your letters of reference, review your applications, and prep you for your admissions interviews.
Why You Should Choose AdmissionsConsultants
They are a comprehensive admissions consultancy. Some companies only talk to you about strategy or only proof your essays for grammatical errors. AdmissionsConsultants is qualified to take you through the entire admission cycle: positioning, strategy, essay topic selection, essay editing for content as well as grammar and wordsmithing, advice on letters of reference including the editing of these when the recommender allows you to draft it, application review, resume editing, and interview preparation. They will leave no stone unturned in their quest to maximize your admissions chances.
They have a successful track record. Their clients have been accepted into Harvard, Stanford, Wharton, Kellogg, Duke, London Business School, INSEAD, and Columbia just to name a few of the top MBA programs. Over 80% of their Silver Package clients and over 95% of their Gold and Platinum Package clients got into at least one of their top-choice schools. Most of these clients were applying to top 10 American business schools too! The company has been around for over 7 years and its success has allowed it to grow.
They offer an hourly and a fixed-fee payment option. They are so confident in their services, that they will allow you to retain their services with a payment of only 1 hour. Additionally, they will allow you to apply the cost of that hour to a fixed-fee application package should you decide to choose a fixed-fee and comprehensive payment option. (Their fixed-fee services are indeed comprehensive and they contain unlimited contact with your assigned consultant, unlimited essay revisions, and no hidden costs.) They don't have to charge a large up-front fee because their services sell themselves. Indeed, over 95% of their clients do engage them for additional services.
They are very highly qualified. All of them have admissions committee experience and, collectively, they have made accept, reject, and waitlist decisions on tens of thousands of applications for the admissions committees of the world's most selective business schools*. Each year they conduct dozens of interviews with admissions professionals at various American and international b-schools to ensure their knowledge base remains current. They are also thoroughly knowledgeable of the admission process as well as the post MBA opportunities that will be available to you. Perhaps most importantly, they each know exactly what the differences are between the median application and the top 10 to 20 percentile applications that get admissions offers at the most selective business schools. This is the experience you want in your corner as you go through the application process!
You can have a choice of consultants. Another benefit of working with a large, established admissions consultancy is that you will have a choice as to who your personal consultant will be. AdmissionsConsultants has consultants who are MBAs with admissions committee experience as well as consultants who have spent their entire careers in admissions. They have a Navy veteran and an Army veteran. They have consultants with backgrounds in strategy consulting, start ups, accounting, finance, marketing, product development, and IT. They have an American-born, native English speaking consultant who has worked and studied in China and they have a consultant who grew up in India. Their consultants live all across the U.S. and they do meet clients in person when geographic distance is not an issue. They probably have a consultant who is a very good match with your background. You will work one-on-one with your consultant but you will still receive the benefit of the company's collective admission knowledge. Working one-on-one will allow your consultant to get to know you very well. Should your candidacy present a particularly difficult or unusual issue, your consultant has internal resources readily available to him or her. In the very unlikely event that your consultant was to become ill right before a deadline, there are other consultants that can cover for him or her. You will not be dealing with a part-time hobbyist.
Your applications are extremely important to your future career goals. Let AdmissionsConsultants help you achieve your dreams.
