Where do I begin? Kathryn and Ariane guided me through the application process in every possible way. Right from the start, when everything felt so overwhelming, we crafted a detailed application plan and timeline. Building out this larger overall tactical approach was an immensely rewarding experience that took place over many detailed discussions. At the time, it helped me craft my overall message and also alleviated so much of the stress that comes with this process. In the long run, it clearly paid dividends as it allowed me to optimize each and every aspect of my individual applications.
I went through the particularly trying experience of being waitlisted at my dream school. That’s when I really felt not only the guidance and value of Square One’s counsel, but also their emotional support. It was a long journey and it’s really nice to know that you have someone in your corner. I definitely asked tons of questions along the way and I received tons of great answers. I would have literally been wandering around in the dark without them.
In the end, I ended up getting into several great programs including my dream school! Thank you so much to Kathryn and her team! I can’t say enough great things! I am forever grateful!
I would highly recommend Square One to anyone looking to have a successful application process and a partner that puts you first and maximizes your strengths. They truly care deeply about the individual and they work tirelessly to give you the best chance to succeed.
