I researched several different MBA prep companies and chose to partner with Square One Prep after connecting with Kathryn, who spoke to me at length, answering all of my questions with detail. As someone unfamiliar with the MBA admissions process, I found this particularly helpful to set expectations and understand what programs look for.
Working with Kathryn and Luis to craft a career narrative and clearly articulate my career goals was really helpful as someone with undefined and ambiguous future plans; though challenging, this process set me up well to write my essays and frame my application.
Lakshmi was a great consultant to work with; she was responsive and meticulous, always available to answer questions and provide feedback on innumerable drafts and iterations. I felt like we connected well and through the whole process, she was reassuring and empathetic, while still pushing me to put out my best work.
Ultimately, I was admitted to Wharton and couldn’t have done it without the help of Square One Prep – their guidance was invaluable and they really had my back throughout the whole application process.
