Right off the bat, Kathryn and the Square One team differentiated themselves through my initial consultation with Kathryn. While respectful and thoughtful, Kathryn was direct and to the point during the call, a style that the entire Square One team embodied throughout the process.
Throughout the process, the entire team was incredibly responsive and helped me stay on-top of my deadlines, despite my complaining about my busy work schedule. In addition to hand-holding me through the specific parts of the application, Kathryn and her team were very helpful in guiding me through some of the “softer” parts of the process (e.g., willingness to jump on a call when I was suffering from writer’s block, debriefing after interviews, guidance on nudging my recommenders to submit their recommendations on time, etc.)
The entire Square One Team enabled me to pull together multiple business school applications in a short period of time while maintaining my sanity and I would recommend them to anyone who is considering applying to business schools.
