It was a clean sweep – I’m in at HBS, Wharton, Columbia, and Kellogg!
I was initially skeptical of working with an admissions consulting company. But after my first call with Square One, I stood corrected. I thought I knew what admissions committees were seeking, but I was wrong. My career narrative was weak, my resume wasn’t balanced, and my professional experiences weren’t captured in an easily digestible manner. Here I was, a younger applicant, and SOP shared that I wasn’t doing anything to convince the admissions committees that I was ready for business school. That was indispensable, candid feedback I got on my first call. Not just that, SOP immediately had insights to help me turn weak areas into strengths. My entire partnership was like this – my advisor consistently listened to me, educated me, and helped me elevate or in some cases completely turn upside down (in a good way) my work and thoughts. SOP kept me on schedule and focused. They were relentless about making sure I put my best foot forward, and it paid off. Thank you guys!
