I worked with Kathleen/ Kathryn on applying to Harvard and Stanford. I can speak very highly of the team on how they handled the entire process. In retrospect, a few aspects stand out:
1. They were very knowledgeable about the application/ admissions process: I came to the process without a lot of knowledge of the application process, and through the Square One team’s help, was able to find which programs really interested me and what would be required in preparing for the applications.
2. They challenged my application to make it stronger: throughout the process, whether it was the application essay or the interview, they constantly challenged with questions and comments, to make the story stronger and succinct.
3. They were very responsive and punctual: In the life of a busy New York professional, managing the Business School application process was not easy. Thanks to Square One team, it felt a lot more manageable and ultimately achieved an outcome that I wanted.
