I chose SOP because it was highly recommended by a personal friend and former client. When I started, I didn’t have a strong reason for getting an MBA. Through their introspective approach, they pushed me and challenged me to bring my application to life. The entire mindset of my application changed. I started out as a CPA with little direction or understanding of what set me apart from other applicants. I eventually understood my own personal “assets” and how I was going to get the attention of adcoms. With SOP’s help, I was able to craft a rock solid narrative of how I was going to use my CPA experience to make an impact in the manufacturing/operations space. By the end, they helped me place the strongest version of myself in front of admissions committees. I’m glad I trusted my friend and SOP.
