By capitalising on the insecurity of people who will do anything to get into a good school ... I find them to be very predatory in general

I’m not an expert scholar in the field, so I don’t know for sure, but 1) I find it hard to believe that race scholars would not make reasonable efforts to isolate race and 2) there are two very high profile experiments (one on standardized test essays and one on resume screening) where the content of the essay/resume was identical, and the only difference was a “white” or “black” name at the top

Some consultants are good and they're really trying to help, you can pay for them if you feel like it… Others prey on insecurity and that's not cool
