I tested out a number of big-name consultants during my MBA admissions process before I hired Square One Prep, who was a clear stand out. First, my consultant had many years of experience in admissions consulting and offered rare knowledge of the inner-workings of admissions committees. Second, while it was on me to drive the process with other consultants, my consultant at Square One Prep was consistently one step ahead of me on my applications–it was encouraging and helped me sustain a momentum. Third, she was also able to schedule around me, which made the process easier to manage alongside my demanding professional obligations. Fourth, her consistently thoughtful strategies made me feel like the weaker parts of my candidacy were surmountable. The entire time I felt as though my consultant was invested in my candidacy, a dynamic which was entirely absent in my relationships with other high-profile consultants. Her energy was infectious. I couldn’t more highly recommend Square One Prep. I’m off to Wharton in the Fall and in retrospect I realize that the price of their service is a bargain!
