Tuck’s Views on the Use of Admissions Consultants

Admissions consultants from around the world met with admissions directors from most of the top schools at the AIGAC conference this month.  The Tuck admissions team had invited AIGAC members (Association of International Graduate Admissions Consultants)  and had offered them valuable insights on  Tuck’s offerings and resources. It was an extremely engaging and rewarding conference.

In the following blog, Tuck made it very clear that its OK to take admission consultants’ assistance. In their words,

“Reputable consultants have experience in MBA programs and a broad understanding of the variety of schools out there……… Consultants can also assist on the path to reflection and discovery."

 They emphasized that the applicants may take a good consultant’s assistance but they should submit their original work.  They also talked about the best practices followed by the members of the AIGAC.

“And we should say from the get-go, that AIGAC, in particular, is an organization that’s dedicated to promoting ethical practices in the industry and all of its members agree to adhere to a set of principles.
