I just want to thank the entire team for helping me get into Tuck!
Kathryn, Piersten, Wendy, and Bailey — I would not get the same results without your help, guidance, and support.
The expertise that SOP provides is unparalleled. It started with an initial call with Kathryn, who didn’t waste a second trying to sell the service or talking about different schools (I talked to 10+ consultants and half of them did that). Instead, our time was spent on my profile and my story. When I talked to Piersten, my personal consultant, I knew right away that she was the real deal — she read my previous essays before our initial call, she replied back fast to set up calls, and she could relate to me. Wendy was instrumental to bring out ambitious goals while keeping me grounded to things that I must achieve short-term. And Bailey was great at making sure I was on track. How could I not get into a top school with such amazing team? All I had to do is to put in as much work as they did.
Like I said, I got a lot of help from SOP while crafting my applications. However, I wish SOP created a networking and/or school research guide for its clients. I had to learn to network on the spot during my school visits and I wish I was prepared better ahead of time.
Overall, my experience with the team has been very positive. I am happy with my decision to use SOP’s services (look at that ROI) and I can’t wait to start my MBA journey. Thank you!
