With mbaMission's a la carte hourly services, you can choose to work on any task relating to any stage of the application process, including program compatibility/school selection, brainstorming, outline/essay review, resume review, short-answer review, recommender strategy, and interview preparation. As an hourly client, you dictate the process and decide how and where you want to dedicate your purchased time with your consultant.
To make the most of this partnership, we strongly recommend you start by informing your consultant about which parts of the application process you want to work on, which schools you plan to apply to (with and without the aid of a consultant), and how many hours you have purchased or expect to purchase. This information will help your consultant anticipate and prepare for his or her exact role in the work you will do together and advise you as to what/how much can realistically be accomplished within the amount of time you purchase(d). Of course, we recognize that priorities can shift along the way, and our consultants are always flexible.
Consultants will return all materials review within a two business day turnaround and keep track of all time used for calls (including preparation), responding to emails, and material review. The time required to review varies significantly according to the initial quality of the draft received, the candidate’s ability to integrate feedback and learn/improve, the candidate’s expectation of the service (e.g., some candidates want a thorough edit, whereas others prefer a general critique) among other factors.
