Square One Prep was exactly what I needed, when I needed it – and the results speak for themselves. I got into the school of my choice, Yale SOM, with a full scholarship!
I am an older candidate with average grades and a low GMAT score. I further put myself into a difficult position by not starting the application process until late in the fall. A friend of mine attending Kellogg strongly recommended Square One Prep and I am so grateful that he did!
Using her wealth of knowledge, my Square One Prep consultant helped me narrow down my initial list of business school programs to those that really fit my interests. They also suggested I add a few I hadn’t seriously considered. Once my list was set, my consultant crafted a schedule for ALL of the schools I was applying to (even though we weren’t partnering on all of them together) and helped me stick to it throughout the entire process – all while reassuring me, offering encouragement, and dispensing strategic advice.
Square One Prep’s personal approach is what really made the difference. My consultant took the time to really get to know me, which enabled her to guide me towards writing essays that highlighted the best facets of my personal and professional life while helping me articulate goals for my new career path.
I still can’t believe I’m heading to Yale School of Management this fall with a full scholarship! Thank you Square One Prep!
