Admissions Consulting? Worth it?

<p>I am a junior at a top 10 college with like 3.9 gpa and will probably get at least 700 on the GMAT. I plan to apply to HBS 2+2 this summer.</p>

<p>In planning my application, I've come across a few admissions consulting companies. Has anyone used one of these? Is there a general consensus to their effectiveness?</p>

<p>I know they are quite expensive, but if I got into HBS I think that money would be well worth it. If I got rejected however, it would seem like $2,000 down the drain. Thoughts?</p>

<p>Are you serious?</p>
