Looking back, I cannot imagine applying to business school without Square One Prep. My advisor’s advice, feedback and perspective served as the building blocks in my preparation. Every step of the way, her invaluable input increased my confidence, eased my concerns/anxiety and gave me the reassurance I needed. Her objective assessment of my strengths/weaknesses and guidance helped me shape my application, optimize productivity and manage my time effectively. What was terrific and comforting about my advisor was that she made me feel as if she was exclusively working for me, as she was remarkably accessible and responsive at all times of the day, night and week – she worked tremendously hard to ensure she made herself available. I am in a time zone that is 12 hours ahead of New York and yet that never hindered our communication. Additionally, her genuine desire to see me succeed spurred me on to work harder and create stronger pieces of work. Juggling a demanding job in investment banking while applying to schools was a real challenge and having a such a dedicated, knowledgeable coach encouraged me to invest the required amount of time and energy into perfecting my applications. Her affable nature and great communication skills in tandem with her sharp insights made it an absolute pleasure to work with her. She made my application process a smooth ride. She made getting into Wharton, my #1 choice, seem like a smooth ride too!
I would highly recommend Square One Prep to anyone who wants to get into a Top 3 school.
