I interviewed many different consultancies but chose Square One because it was clear from the outset that I would receive the personalized support and attention from the team needed to help make my business school goal a reality. In a welcomed contrast to initial consultations with other firms – where I felt the quick, 15-minute conversations were only about my surface-level qualifications – Kathryn spent nearly an hour and a half getting to know me and my personal and professional background and followed up shortly thereafter with an application action plan tailored to me.
Once I decided to move forward with SOP, this commitment to my success continued throughout the application process. Whether it was multiple, hours-long phone calls that helped inform a business school-ready resume; in-depth career goal sessions; detailed essay reviews; and thorough interview preparation, Kathryn, Matteo, and Wendy were always there as trusted advisors to ensure that my personality, experiences, and goals shined throughout my applications.
I couldn’t be more grateful for the work and admissions outcomes that resulted from the partnership and would highly recommend SOP for your business school application goals!
