Picking the right consultant is tough, as there are more than a handful with great reviews and pretty similar offerings out there. I chose Square One after a long, candid conversation with the founder. I was impressed with their data-driven track record and Kathryn’s honest assessment of my potential but the need to dig deeper into my story. After choosing Square One, I enjoyed working closely with my advisor (Dan K) and the rest of the SOP team throughout the application process. They pushed me to really self-reflect, which was equal parts challenging and satisfying. I ended up only applying to three schools in Round 1 and landed a seat in Booth’s Class of 2022!
