I decided to go with Square One Prep after my free consultation call with Kathryn. She didn’t make empty promises like many other consultants had previously done. She told me clearly that due to my lower than average GPA, getting into my dream school (Stern) would be an uphill battle but that she would help me in every way she could. When applying to business school, having someone to give you thorough and candid feedback is extremely important and I wanted that attitude from the consultant I decided to work with. From the beginning, Kathryn was open and honest and gave constructive criticism when she felt like an aspect of my application could be better. She, along with the entire team helped me navigate the stressful application process and helped me organize all of my applications and deadlines which was very useful, especially while working a full time job. My consultant, Afiya, was always available when I needed her, either via text, email, or phone. Because of her, I was able to put forth my best self to the six business schools I applied to. SOP’s entire team truly want their clients to succeed and I am so happy that I selected them.
