I was introduced to Kathryn via a common friend that recommended her to me as I was searching for support in pulling my application together.
A little background – I am a non standard emba aspirant – having taken 20 years to complete my undergrad due to life happening. Kathryn understood this and was very honest with my chances and laid out a feasible approach to getting me to my goals of obtaining a top rated MBA.
The one thing that stood out for me working with both Kathryn and Collin was their commitment and determination to ensure that I was successful. They worked extremely hard to make sure that I was on track working on the various items for the application process. Both Collin and Kathryn were prompt in providing feedback and following up to make sure that I had completed my items in order to submit by the deadlines.
They spent umpteen hours and effort in ensuring that my story was succinct and came through on my essays and I landed interviews.
Collin’s insights into the interview process and his prep session really prepared me to ace the interview. I am in the program I wanted to be in because of Square One Prep and their doggedness in ensuring that I followed through on my end! I would not hesitate to recommend them to anyone else.
As a side note – be prepared for some tough love – they want you to be successful – and they want you to focus on your goal and will call you out if you don’t prioritize your tasks as you promised to.
