I was unsure of myself going into the process, knowing that this MBA journey would be a defining point in my career. I fussed over my test scores, background, GPA, undergrad, basically everything. Kathryn and Cassandra put many things into perspective, identifying my weaknesses as a younger candidate and then using my background to help mitigate that weakness. We developed a plan to systematically tackle each school and every requirement in the most effective and efficient way. They worked with me to put my story in simpler, understandable terms that strengthened my candidacy. When I received interviews, they spent time preparing with me and noting key points for improvement, which helped me in the actual interview. Cassandra’s tips on my answer structure allowed me to craft a better response to the questions thrown at me. Our hard work was worth it–come decision day, I received offers from my top programs!
I strongly recommend Square One as your partner in this MBA process. They are an amazing group of people and will stand by you through every step, even if it requires late nights. Schedule an intro call with them, you will not regret it!
