Like a lot of people who are applying to business school, I was overwhelmed by the amount of things that I had to do – whether that be crafting the right story, getting strong recommendations, or drafting essays, I kept thinking that I couldn’t do this on my own.
I took an introduction call with Kathryn that was extremely reassuring. I could tell that I would be in good hands, and the most important thing to me was that I knew there was a clear plan for my future success in applying to business school.
Kayin, my personal adviser, was instrumental in this process. He worked with me to constantly iterate on my essays and narrative and provided invaluable career advice that I will take with me to this day. I would have been lost multiple times throughout my b-school application journey without him and I can’t recommend him highly enough.
The common theme here is that the entire team at Square One is amazing: Luis, who pushed me to realize my best possible career narrative, Bailey, who was so extremely helpful in her encouragement and her bottomless knowledge about the application process– thank you all. For those looking to hire an admissions consultant, I PROMISE you it’s worth it to hire Square One Prep.
