I was an immense pleasure to work with SOP! They made my application journey as smooth as possible. As they managed the timeline, I only had to focus on important things like smashing the GMAT and completing my applications, one step at a time. Also, by constantly challenging me, they forced me to take a step back and think deep about my career goals, strengths and weaknesses. The career goals work was a pivotal element for my applications. It was also hard work but eventually paid off thanks to the team’s devil’s advocacy. In addition, in order to craft strong essays, the team pushed me to go to personal places, talking about my past and vulnerabilities. It wasn’t easy but being authentic in my essays truly made me stand out.
Thank you so much for you work! I wouldn’t have made it without them. I would highly recommend SOP team!
