Pre-MBA industry: PhD/HC Product Design
Years of experience at time of matriculation: 3
GMAT/GRE score: 710
Admitted to: Stanford
I applied to two schools – HBS & Stanford. I got an interview from both Stanford and HBS and an invitation to matriculate at Stanford.
Working with Square One Prep was great. I chose to work with them after talking to several groups. I liked that Square One Prep understood how to help me make the most of my advanced education (PhD) and would match me with an advisor only after I put them to the test and felt comfortable with the person. The company’s owner was diligent in her endeavor to get to know me and then match me with someone based on my personality and needs.
My advisor was a great motivator and visionary. She listened to my ideas/stories very well and helped me elevate my body of work in ways I could not have done on my own by pushing me to think more thoughtfully about my the past and personalize my essays. That proved to be priceless. When I felt nervous about the competition, she boosted my confidence. Additionally, when I wanted a second set of eyes on my work, the company’s owner availed herself to do thorough reviews and offer even more insights. I wanted full service and I got it.
Work with Square One Prep and you will succeed.
