In my journey to get accepted in a top Master degree in London, I first encountered many failed attempts because of my insufficient GMAT score and the way I wrote my applications. After a while, I chose to work with a specialised firm and I had several 30-min chats with different firms but the one with Square One Prep turned out to be much more detailed and trustworthy and lasted more than an hour. I was particularly enthusiastic to talk with someone that truly cared about me and my ambitions. When I chose Square One Prep I worked day to day on my applications with Julia Kurnik, but Kathryn Lucas was still really involved in my application process the whole time.
Julia and Kathryn jointly talked to me about the schools I should apply to and reviewed my previous applications. I was particularly satisfied since the discussion was always honest and they always told me what schools might be hard to reach and what are the gaps in my profile. I found it particularly helpful and thorough as getting an honest opinion on yourself is really insightful. Afterwards, we started to work on my application and I was really satisfied to see that my essays and application forms were improving each day.
When I got my first interview, I did a mock interview with Julia, which was particularly interesting because it was so robust. I got a feedback about my performance which allowed me to focus on my weaknesses before the real interview.
At the end of the process, I got accepted at London Business School, my dream program. If you are looking for a top admission consultant that will exceed your expectation, I would definitely advise you to work with Square One Prep.
