A good friend of mine recommended SOP and I’m so glad I decided to work with them! I had an amazing team including Kathryn, Yarden, Luis and Bailey, who guided and supported me throughout the entire journey. They were truly invested in my success, from the very first interaction to my acceptance celebrations. Applying to MBA schools certainly takes an enormous amount of time and devoted efforts. It’s an introspective process where you go through a lot of emotions as you look back into your past accomplishments and challenges. Kathryn, Yarden and Luis really took the time to understand my background and future goals to craft the most compelling and realistic narrative that showcases my strengths and passion. While working with the SOP team, you’ll quickly realize they truly care about their clients, beyond application preparation but deeply connecting with you on a personal level to bring out your unique story.
I was still preparing for the GMAT/GRE while working on my applications. The SOP portal schedule was essential in keeping track of the deadlines as I had a lot on my plate. I’m a perfectionist who puts a lot of pressure on oneself and I struggled with the test prep. Thankfully, Kathryn and Yarden were always there for me, as my biggest supporter, advisor and cheerleader.
Although I didn’t work on all of the schools I applied to with SOP, I can confidently say that the career narrative I worked on with Luis built a strong foundation for the other applications I worked on individually. I cannot recommend SOP enough, it’s an investment in yourself that you will never regret!
