I’m so happy I heard about square one prep from a friend! Hiring them was one of the best decisions. Coming into the process I had only a vague idea about why I wanted to go to business school and wouldn’t have been able to answer any application questions. They helped me sharpen my vision and pushed me to think about things that I otherwise wouldn’t have. My advisor, Lindsay, was fantastic and supportive throughout the whole process. She went back and forth with me so many times about my essays. Kathryn, the founder, would then edit and approve them before I submitted. Their comments were so helpful and I appreciated that they were willing to look at essays multiple times if they felt they weren’t ready. It never felt like they were just checking boxes. I knew they were truly invested in my success. I ended up being accepted to my top choice!
