I had a very positive experience working with Square One. Joey was supportive about my decision to apply to the two schools we discussed and I felt that he kept me on a good schedule for completing the necessary work.
Kathryn and Joey’s insights into how my essays might be interpreted were also very helpful. They were a good team in advising on how to craft the most logical and compelling story for my background. We spent a lot of time bouncing ideas off of each other regarding anecdotes to include in my essays which I found useful. Additionally the intro call where we talked through the entire process and I told Joey my story was crucial in helping me get a sense of the story direction I wanted to take.
I also appreciated how accessible and easy to reach they both were. I would recommend working with them both.
