At first I wanted to go with another company because the costs were slightly less, but I am glad I didn’t! I am 2/2 on admissions right now and still waiting to hear back on 2 more. What makes Square One Prep unique is that you are not only getting your main admission’s consultant, in my case Jeannice, but also you are getting Kathryn and her team. The team exceded my expectations on all accounts. The most rewarding part for me was the career planning call. In the call you will be with main consultant, Kathryn and a career planning coach and everyone will give input and challenge any points you make on your post MBA plans to make sure they are bulletproof. At the end of every call they will give you points to research and solidify on. If they feel you are not ready for the next steep they will set up another call, I had four calls.
Another great thing is that everything I did got reviewed by Jeannice first and then once we thought it was ready it get’s send it off to Kathryn. I was impressed by how the content of the reviews, and Kathryn is not afraid to tell you to start over if she feels it’s not on the right path, something I really liked. It gave me a peace of mind knowing that when she says my essay is ready, it really is ready. The process was definitely a lot of work, but I learned a lot about myself thought the process. I am very glad I chose Square One Prep!
