About Amerasia

Amerasia Consulting Group is an international group that focuses on getting applicants into the top programs in North America, Europe, and Asia. Their average clients include both industry professionals and high school students, and are roughly an even mix of domestic and international applicants.

Due to Amerasia’s focus on getting top-quality candidates into the top 25 MBA programs, they only accept a limited number of applicants and will not provide services to anyone they believe is not sufficiently competitive. To help determine whether or not a potential client is suitable for their program, they offer a free one-hour consultation by scheduled appointment only.

Basics

After an applicant passes Amerasia’s initial interview process, clients can pick from either the full service program or a selection of individual services.

The full service package focuses on creating essays, generating a resume, and acquiring meaningful letters of recommendation. It also includes a review of the final submission package, mock interviews, and various other hands-on services. All of these packages are run by consultants who have a minimum of five years of experience in providing admissions consultation services, and all services are tailored specifically for the client.

Individual services are available for those who don’t need quite as much support, and include essay help, interview support, and even analysis of rejections.

Amerasia Cost and Contact Info

Individual services are available starting at $250 per school or hour, rising up to $1800 for essay and resume help. The full service is priced at $3,900 for one school, with an additional cost of $1,100-$2,000 for each subsequent school.

Amerasia Consulting can be reached by email at mba@amerasiaconsulting.com, by telephone at 1 (877) 866-9251, or through a contact form on their website at www.amerasiaconsulting.com.

    Don’t use! Generalized advice, no time to work with students 1:1, aggressive consulting style that results in generic, overwrought essays. If you have a decent hold on writing, you’re better off writing these yourselves!

    I worked with Paul – I was highly impressed with the quality of the work and Paul’s ability to go above and beyond. However, in terms of working styles – I often found it extremely frustrating as deadlines were constantly being undelivered.

    I worked with Paul Lanzilotti, who communicated with me normally over Slack and also frequently over the phone. The primary sources of help came from essay editing as well as tailoring for each school. While I had a good story and good stats (4.0 GPA, >730 GMAT), I received no interviews the prior year. I therefore shopped around and felt most comfortable working with Paul. After a long and rather nerve-racking process, Paul helped me present a more coherent story, tailored properly for each school. I ultimately was admitted to 4 top-10 schools, 1 with scholarship. I am very happy with my result and am overjoyed to attend my dream school in the fall. Paul exceeded my expectations for 1 simple reason – he knew what to do, which allowed me to achieve my goal. Ultimately that’s why you hire a consultant.

    I worked with Alex Nascimento. Alex did give me an overall outlook of the application and gave me a good idea of how to approach the process but he had no idea how difficult it is for Indian applicants, even with a good GMAT score.

    Hired Ameresia for Admissions consulting and I worked with Alex Nascimento. While Alex did provide me with all the deliverables, but I felt that he had no experience of working with an Indian applicant. He didn’t realize that getting an Indian male applicant an admission to one of the top schools is a different ballgame than helping a domestic applicant. As a result, the two schools I applied with him dinged me without an interview!

    Adam responded to my email request for a consultation session by saying that at this stage (3 weeks away from Columbia J-Term deadline), I should not be hung up on past applications. Rather than paying for a ding analysis, I should focus on my current applications instead. Adam quickly reviewed one of my past applications (for free), and provided insights and resources on possible areas of improvement. Because Adam was so willing to work with me on my profile and available packages/pricing, I decided to go with Amerasia.

    The Columbia expert assigned to me was Anjali. She’s a Columbia graduate and knew the school well. The area I needed help the most was probably my resume. Anjali was very patient with me and went through multiple edits to greatly improve my resume.

    Given my short timeline, what impressed me the most was how Anjali was always able to make time for me. She is very responsive through email – sometimes I get replies in minutes. She was always ahead of the schedule that we had put together. Anjali was professional and patient, answered all my questions, and provided moral support. Her mock interview was also very useful.

    Anyway, I no longer need to do my re-apps for Round 2 (that was the original plan). I applied to one school with Amerasia, and got in. 🙂 Thanks!

    Caleb:

    I worked with Drew. He was helpful in guiding me to shape my goals and essays towards a model that would be easily digestible and appealing to MBA admissions committees. That said, he was also pretty agnostic when it came to grammar, phrasing and expression — these areas may indeed not be of as much interest to admissions folks? But there were times when I expected a bit more in terms of shaping. I got a lot of edits but felt that I was reasonably quickly pigeonholed as ‘xyz’ type of candidate and little room for complexity from there.

    • MBA application & school advice: Keep it simple. And keep your goals pragmatic, but also socially impactful. Maybe say you want to work in financial regulation...?

    I used services of a private consulting firm in India. My Consultant was very helpful. He helped me write excellent essays and letter of intent.He also filtered the schools I should be applying based on my preferences and constraints. The service was expensive but I think it was worth the cost. He has a team of individuals who are experts in the application process. They start with a huge questionnaire for you to fill up and based on the answers help you build a theme. I was very satisfied with their services and would recommend it to anyone who would like to use a genuine consultancy and get into good business schools in the US.
