Admissions Consultants as Supplemental Recommenders
Couple questions for the board...
First how many of you used an admissions consultant to help prep for SSAT/ISEE and with application essays?
Second, if such a consultant is someone with 30+ years experience in prestigious private schools and thinks highly of your child how do you think a supplemental recommendation from that person would be received by a tier 1 admissions committee? Seems to me there is a conflict of interest given the existence of a fiduciary relationship with the recommender. But I'm new to this world so perhaps I am wrong. Curious to hear if others have had positive or negative experiences with this idea.
Thanks in advance!
