Before you hear your classmate or any colleague talking about any counsellor, ask yourself the following questions -
If you feel an education consultant or a counsellor is going to reduce your work, then you are highly mistaken. You still have to do all the hard work; they just guide you along the way. It is a form of spoon feeding, no doubt about it.
Don’t get carried away by their tempting talks as they give you a lot of hope before joining them and in the end you may find that you didn’t get all that was promised.
If you fall in the above mentioned categories (which usually you will), then you SHOULD NOT make the counsellors rich.
Ideally, your seniors are the best counselors. If someone from friends & relatives has gone for an MS, even better. Consultancies will provide you with a standard list of universities which is more or less the same for everybody. The list is (most of the times) irrespective of the course, which you could have prepared on your own. Again, before you feel that a counsellor can fit in your shoes and get you the best university, we suggest you take a look at Yocket's Profile Evaluator tool which predicts chances of based on your profile.
Tip: E-mail your profile to the seniors from your respective department and follow their opinion.
The university online application forms are extremely simple and are more or less the same for all the universities. They are the “Apply Yourself” forms. You have to read the instructions properly which even a seven-year old can understand!
