We are an online marketplace for discovering top MBA Admissions consultants. We have MBA students and alumni from top B-Schools who have been through the rigour of the MBA application process themselves. Our aim is to give applicants the flexibility to choose consultants based on their target school and budget.

Visit www.applymba.co/consultants. To search for a consultant consulting for your chosen school or industry use the search box on the top. Once you have decided on your consultant , choose the services you want and hire him/her using our industry accepted secured payment gateways. Within 24 hours, the ApplyMBA team will get in touch with you to schedule the first consultant session with your consultant. All subsequent meetings and deadlines between the consultant and you will be mutually decided between you and the consultants

Use the search box on the top in the consultants listing page. Type the target school or industry and the results will show all consultants having the school or industry in their profile.

All the essays combined together present a complete picture of the applicant to an admissions committee. So until and unless the consultant views the application in its entirety s/he is unable to effectively advise the applicant on the overall approach. This is not possible if the consultant is reviewing only one essay.

Once you hire a consultant, you will get an email from ApplyMBA within 24 hours in order to schedule a consultation with the consultant. Once you have had the first meeting with your consultant, all subsequent meeting timings and deadlines will be decided between you and the consultant.

After you have the first session with your consultant, you will have a fairly good idea whether or not you are comfortable with the consultant and would like to continue with him. We strongly urge you make your decision within the 7 day refund period. However in the event that you do not feel like working with the consultant at some later point of time, contact the consultant and let him/her know what the problem is. Try and mutually resolve the problem. If that does not work, send a cancellation request to connect@applymba.co along with your order id and we will resolve the issue.

If for some reason we are unable set up even one meeting between you and your consultant within 7 days of placing the order, you will have the opportunity to claim a refund within 24 hours of your first session whenever that happens.

Our consultants work mainly over phone , online or video chat. So your main form of communication would be over skype or email. It will never be a problem if you and your consultant are located in different countries

Our verified review system ensures that only those who have hired a consultant can post a review for the consultant. Once you place an order “Add review” link will appear along with the order in your My Account → My orders section. Alternatively you can visit the consultant page whom you have hired and leave a review there. However if you have not hired the consultant you will not be able to review that consultant.

Whether or not to have their full name show up is completely upto the candidates. However from our conversation with them, many candidates are not comfortable sharing their full names and we leave it at that. However do rest assured that all reviews are vetted by us. Only those who hire consultants can give review only for that consultant. 

You will need to go to My Account -> Edit (click on the little pencil) -> Change your username to whatever you are comfortable with -> save.

When you give the review only your username will come up as the reviewer name. 

We use Paypal for all transactions for applicants who are based outside India (non-Indian account holders). For Indian account holders we use CCAvenue payment gateway that is a leading payment gateway provider in India.

To remove inconsistencies due to rate fluctuations, we use a flat conversion rate of Rs 65 per US dollar. When you choose CCAvenue as the payment option and proceed to payment, you will be able see the converted price in the CCAvenue portal before you make the payment.
