I absolutely loved working with Square One! As someone who approached the MBA application process with little to no familiarity, I really appreciate how the Square One Team and my personal advisor Garry have helped me every step of the way. By working with me in crafting a career narrative, deciding which schools would be the best fit, preparing for interviews, and even getting off the waitlist, Square One has been exactly what I needed in this journey.
I was immediately impressed by the structure of working with Ssquare Oone, with the resume reviews and career narrative calls before applications even opened. Not only has Square One been proactive in helping me prepare for applications before they opened, but the personal aspect of working with Kathryn and Garry has given layers to my application that I wouldn’t have been able to reach alone. Having in depth conversations about my personal story in meetings with the team has really allowed me to highlight the best parts of my candidacy while staying grounded in how I approach my weaknesses in my essays.
All of the conference calls and one-on-one meetings have really allowed me to think outside the box as an applicant with a nontraditional MBA background in nonprofit. The team has done an amazing job in getting me where I wanted to go, and at the end of this process I was fortunate enough to be accepted into multiple schools with various scholarships!
I am excited to matriculate at Goizueta this Fall and wouldn’t have been able to do it without Square One! I would definitely recommend speaking to Kathryn for anyone starting this process!
