I do agree that using an admission consultant's services would make one's BSchool application more impressive/thorough. But I wonder what the BSchool's Ad-Coms think of prospective students using such services to edit their essays. Do the BSchools look upon such essay editing services favorably?

Gautam,

Good question. First of all, all schools condemn services that write essays.

Schools are becoming more accepting of schools that advise clients and edit essays. Please see the quotes on http://www.aigac.org web site, the list of almost 200 admissions transcripts on Accepted (http://www.accepted.com/chat/transcripts/mba_year.aspx ) or review the recent graduate admissions consultant conference press release (http://kcs4aigac.setupmyblog.com/2008/07/15/first-annual-aigac-conference/) to see that more and more schools are working with us to help you find the right school for you. Collaboration is more and more the name of the game between admissions officers and consultants. It's not universal, but IMHO it is definitely a trend.

Best,
Linda
