I was a third time applicant for this year’s application cycle. I was tentative on applying again but on a friend’s recommendation, I decided to give one final try with SOP. One more caveat in my application was that I was applying for my second MBA.The team at SOP worked brilliantly with all the constraints I had brought to the table (3rd time applicant/ 2nd MBA) and turned them into my strengths rather than a chink in my armor.
The process at SOP was very structured and rigorous. Initially, Kathryn and team spent considerable time on understanding my personality and my overall story. Luis, the career expert at SOP, helped me build a compelling career narrative. Alessandro helped me craft essays that bought out my story in a much better way than previous years. The process was very iterative and organic. Kathryn and the team were constantly mindful of the schedule that they carefully prepared for me and proactively communicated with me to avoid any delays in the application prep. The result was that by the end, I had a very compelling career narrative and essays that aligned with my personality and goals well before my application deadlines.
I am elated to say that I finally was able to secure admission (that too in one of the most competitive cycles ever) with a sizable scholarship. My experience with SOP was very fruitful and would highly recommend their services for someone applying to top B Schools.
