My experience with Kathryn Lucas and her team has been truly rewarding. Not only did they provide some much needed high level guidance on how to craft a convincing story, but also drilled down on a series of crucial details to help round up my candidate profile. Navigating a stressful MBA application process is daunting, but the collaboration I had with Kathryn and team made the process clearer, easier and more meaningful. One thing in particular that I really appreciated throughout the process is how Kathryn and my advisor, Sarah, challenged me on some of my personal themes. These candid and open conversations facilitated further thought process that I felt extremely valuable. To have people who have key insights and are also willing to challenge you throughout the process can help add the winning touch to your application.
I applied to schools on my own R1 and didn’t secure offers. After working with Square One on my Round 2 applications, I will be attending Kellogg in the fall.
