Blast from the Past:
What MBA Admissions Consultants Charge
Looking for an edge in admissions? You’re not alone. It’s not always easy to pinpoint a redefining moment, let alone decipher what an adcom is really after in an interview. That’s why many prospective MBAs turn to consultants. Often former adcoms themselves, these consultants help applicants with everything from developing a strategy to polishing a resume.
But they don’t come cheap. Hourly rates run from $250-$500. And a “full-service” package will set you back anywhere from $3000-$4500…and that’s just for one school. Not to mention, these charges are coming at a time when there are fewer (and shorter) essays. Make no mistake: If you get accepted into a top tier program, they’re worth every dollar.
So who are the top consultants in the business school space? How much do they charge? And just how do they justify their fees? Check out Poets&Quants’ in-depth data below on consultants’ package, hourly, and service fees for answers to these questions…and more.
