I was introduced to Kathryn via a friend who also consulted with Square One previously.
Unlike some other MBA consulting services, Kathryn took the time to understand my story and vision for my post MBA goals instead of trying to fit me into a cookie-cutter template. In addition, instead of being airy and not providing any concrete advices during the initial consulting session, Kathryn took the time to brainstorm with me and provided detailed suggestions on what I should do for my application. Her commitment and effort during the initial consultation made me pick Square One out of the competitive pool of consultants.
Furthermore, the dual consultants system utilized by Square One ensures that whatever I was working on goes through two sets of scrutinizing eyes. My personal consultant, Victor, was amazing and supportive during the process. Not only did he capture the essence of my essays, but he’s also amazing in prepping you for all kinds of interviews. He worked around the clock to make sure I was ready for what’s to come.
Square One helped me tremendously during the application process. They challenge you on your thoughts and assist you in making your vision concrete. I would truly like to thank them for all of their efforts in assisting me.
