Before starting the application process, I was really worried about crafting a unique story and differentiating myself from the many other consultants applying to top business schools. Kathryn, Wendy, and Leila helped me dig deep into my past experiences and future career goals, and their application support was instrumental in my acceptance to Kellogg, my top choice school.
The SOP team refined every line of my resume, pushed me to develop a compelling career narrative, reviewed materials I prepared for my recommenders, helped me brainstorm a wide range of essay topics that reflected my values and experiences, and provided constructive feedback on many versions of my essays. The whole team was committed to my success and continued to work through my application materials with me until we were all confident that they were ready to submit.
The SOP team held my hand and made sure I stayed on track with all aspects of the application process. They relieved a lot of my stress, offered incredible expertise, and celebrated my successes. I would highly recommend SOP to anyone going through the MBA application process!
