I was first introduced to Square One Prep by a friend that had a positive experience with Kathryn a few years ago and encouraged me to reach out. Initially I was a bit hesitant to engage an advisor for my MBA applications, however, after an enlightening intro call and a few follow up emails, I was convinced Kathryn and her team were the right choice for me. Their structured approach to building my profile and narrative paired with their profound knowledge of what is most important for the admissions departments of my target MBA programs helped ensure I highlighted the most impactful activities for each application. The SOP team was also always available to answer questions or advise on any topic, which really helped remove much of the anxiety of the application process. With their help I was accepted at my top choice program, even though I had a below average GPA and GMAT score. I can’t recommend them enough!
