Senior Consultant Nadine Warner is quoted in the
Harvard Crimson about what differentiates AdmissionsConsultants from other consulting firms in the market. The article discusses the new and unique role that consulting businesses have in the admissions process to Ivy League and top-tier schools.
The article specifically comments on current or previous Harvard students with no admissions committee experience becoming consultants and the danger that can present to an applicant in regards to
"fitting a mold". In the article Warner stresses that all of AdmissionsConsultants consultants have admissions committee experience. She notes in the article that they've seen thousands of applications and know how to avoid the most common pitfalls. She goes onto provide some skepticism about the Harvard student companies and their lack of admissions experience.
Warner states in the article, "I worry that [their experience] is too specific to the individual experience as opposed to having admissions committee experience so that you know students across the board".
Warner personally spent 3 years as Assistant Director of Admissions at the University of Chicago and made thousands of accept/reject/waitlist decisions on the college's applicants. She is one of the many college consultants employed by AdmissionsConsultants
that has served as an Assistant Director or Director of
Admissions at a top-tier school.
