Square One Prep played a huge role in my ability to get accepted at Wharton. My consultant was always available, had a no nonsense style, and was very organized. These attributes were very important to me. I needed someone who could adjust to my travel-heavy schedule, not beat around the bush, and keep me on track to meet important deadlines. She executed in every department.
Additionally, going in, I really underestimated just how much time, thought, and effort I needed to put in to the process to put together a competitive application. I also didn’t understand that I would be deemed a younger applicant or that my low GMAT score would be problematic. My consultant not only educated me, she walked me through how to tackle my relative inexperience compared to my competition and helped me choose the best way to mitigate my low GMAT score. Having someone who knows exactly what the adcoms want, and don’t want, was a lot more valuable than I originally anticipated.
The admissions process is extremely competitive. I couldn’t have pulled it off without Square On Prep. I highly recommend them to anyone who is serious about getting into any leading MBA program.
