    It's not a complete sentence.

    Nathan,

    You would get more useful comments if you gave us some context or at the very least a complete sentence in which you would like to use such an expression.

    Re: Whatever you consider!

    For example your friend says ''We'd better not go there'' and instead of replying with ''Whatever you say'' you use ''Whatever you consider!''

    Re: Whatever you consider!

    I would say 'Whatever you think best'.

    'Whatever you consider' does not sound colloquial.
