As a reapplicant one can assume you want to know what went wrong with your original applications. Kathryn took the time to review in detail all my essays and resume prior to having an initial call with me to discuss my plan of action. It was clear to me that I had to tighten up my story. I chose to work with SquareOne because I felt that the team had genuine confidence in my profile. This was not the case with several other firms I spoke to. Together with Kathryn and Katherine, we discussed in DETAIL how I can focus my applications and shape my career aspirations whilst staying true to my own voice. Admittedly, I struggled with this and it took team effort to express my vision effectively. Finally, I want to highlight the value of having over 20 successful sample essays to read per school of choice. One gets a feeling for the necessary variations in style.
