I mean this from the bottom of my heart: I never would’ve gotten into Wharton without Square One. I started the MBA process pretty late into Round 2 as a young, non-traditional applicant (coming from education). I never thought I’d have a chance at a top MBA this year, but after speaking to multiple resources, I decided to take a shot. After conversations with a lot of different consultants, I opted to go with Kathryn and Square One due to her honesty and confidence in the application process.
I received guidance from the Square One team on every facet of the application process. My consultant, Iris Tian, was also a former teacher and is the most supportive and helpful person I could’ve possibly asked for. My career narrative expert, Wendy, was instrumental in helping me define my career narrative as a younger applicant. When I submitted my apps to my three schools, I genuinely believed I could not have put a better application forward. Ultimately, I interviewed at two of the schools and was accepted at Wharton with money. It feels like I’m dreaming, and I am so grateful for choosing Square One!
