Upon deciding to apply for a Masters degree from Cornell University, I was overwhelmed with the various aspects of the application. I immediately reached out to Kathryn, who I have known for years, and who is an expert on all things graduate admissions. She was extremely helpful, responsive, and sincere in guiding me through a multitude of decisions. When I found myself at the Academic Statement portion of the application, I read through my initial thoughts and drafts, and realized I needed professional help in conveying my credentials, ideas, goals, and passions. My writing skills are great, but I was unable to clearly communicate everything in a structured manner, and within the word limit. Although Kathryn was helping me as a friend up until that point, I decided to engage her services through Square One Prep to fully flush out my essay and get it to where it needed to be in order to be considered for admission to Cornell. Her team was available, helpful, and experienced. They knew exactly what needed to be said, and how. They pointed out glaring issues in my initial drafts that I would have never thought to consider as problems, and helped me construct a smooth “flow” within my essay. I couldn’t be happier that I chose Square Prep One to assist with my Cornell application, and the truest testament to their quality of work is the fact that I was accepted to my first program of choice, and will be attending Cornell this coming Fall.
