I worked with Square One Prep on six top 15 MBA school applications this season. I was invited to interview at ALL schools, got into three (INSEAD, ISB, and Ross) and I will be heading off to Ross in the Fall! I am so grateful to my consultant, not only for her help with essay-writing and interview prep, but also for being a great motivator, and for keeping me focused when I was being pulled in so many different directions. She listened to my life story, helped me pick out my biggest strengths, and really saw to it that those characteristics were well represented in my essays. Being an Indian with a technology consulting background, I learned from my consultant just how important differentiating myself from all the other applicants in that category is. She was not afraid to be blunt with me. She kept me on track; even when I didn’t get essay drafts to her on time, she always got reviews back to me within 24 hours. Not only that, she always edited my essays in a manner that elevated the work to a level I couldn’t get them to on my own! Once I submitted my applications she helped me prepare for my interviews, saving me once again. Having a mock interview was more helpful than I could’ve imagined. My consultant was simply great to work with due to her uplifting attitude, unwavering support/accessibility, and knowledge of the process.
I highly recommend Square One Prep. The money was well worth it, as with them you will make your business school dreams come true. Good luck with your applications!
