Applying to B school can be a very intimidating process unless you have someone help you navigate through it. I am very glad that I chose SOP since they were there for me all the way.
SOP was very professional and methodical. Kathryn and team cared for what I believed in and put their best effort to highlight the strengths in my application and negate the weaknesses- GMAT score.
I was very impressed with the way they restructured my very technical resume to a layman friendly resume, portraying a bigger and colorful picture of me as a person. In regards to essays, SOP ensured that each of my essays were tailored such that the essays reflected the DNA of the school without changing my voice or style of expression. Wonita, the consultant I worked with, was very supportive, gave critical feedback and made sure I didn’t deviate away from what I intended to tell through my essays. She also gave me two mock interviews, one for Kellogg and one for Booth, so that I felt more confident while attending them. Frankly speaking, there was a lot going on for me on a personal front that I wasn’t sure how I was going to apply. But I was able to balance things because I had SOP to help me during this tough time.
In the end, I was admitted to one of my top choices, Booth Evening MBA program. I cant thank Kathryn and Wonita enough for it. I highly recommend Square One Prep to any applicant trying to get into a top school.
