I know that I could not have navigated the MBA application process or have gotten into my choice of programs without the help of Kathryn and my day-to-day adviser, Jason. From my very first conversation with Kathryn, I knew that her rigor and intensity would help me stay on track! Jason pushed me to explore every essay topic that I had and challenged my ideas to ensure that each draft of my essay was productive. Kathryn and her leadership team added another layer of scrutiny to the work I put into my application. Ultimately, I was confident that every application I put forth had been fully vetted!
When it came time for interview prep, Jason’s feedback was instrumental in helping me bring my application to life. He called out questions that I needed to tighten and gave me thorough feedback after each mock interview to ensure I was more prepared each time. Even after I had finished all my interviews, Jason checked-in on me to keep me sane and make sure I wasn’t getting too stressed!
I so appreciate that both Kathryn and Jason were so accessible and willing to get on the phone with me any time, any day. Every interaction I had with them made me feel like I was their only client. They knew my background, stats, essays, etc. in and out and I never had to remind them where we left off on our last call. The Square One Prep team believed in me from the beginning and helped me build the confidence I needed to present my best self and get into the program that was the best fit for me!
