It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Square One Prep (SOP). A few things that stood out to me were firstly, the wide variety of consultants they have on-board. I actually found someone who had similar work experience as mine which made our brainstorming that much easier. It’s difficult to communicate the joys of being a teacher to someone who hasn’t been one before!
Secondly, I like the structure that SOP provides to the application process. It’s well defined and personalized at the same time, this helped articulating my career goals and drafting my essays. Also, the way they reviewed every component of my application with multiple people reading it and giving their feedback was crucial because I sometimes needed that 3rd party opinion.
Thirdly, I absolutely loved how invested they were in my application journey. I would receive an email from every SOP person I had worked with for every interview admit and final admit that I would receive. It made me feel like they were celebrating my successes with me and it never hurts to have to have some cheerleaders 🙂
