Square One Prep has been the best partner I could have hoped for during the MBA admissions process. They bring in the perfect mix of sound professional advice with the much-needed motivation only a true friend would provide.
At the very beginning Kathryn and I had an hour-long interaction where she took time to understand my story and my goals. I really appreciated how she candidly laid out the strengths and weaknesses in my profile and how best we could work together to secure an admit from my target schools.
The SOP process that followed was extremely well structured and ensured every aspect of my application was covered well. In particular, working on my career narrative and goals was super helpful. I was pushed hard to dig into the details and really convince the team on ‘why’ I needed an MBA. Though rigorous, this was a very helpful and rewarding experience that created a strong bedrock for my application.
But most of all, I am grateful for the support I received from my advisor Kathleen. She took extra effort to work around my busy schedule and was always available when I needed her. The brainstorming sessions with her really helped me understand my own strengths better and pen down the best possible essays. Throughout the intense application process, she had faith in me and continuously cheered me on. I truly believe I could not have received an admit from my target school without her support.
I am therefore very very grateful to SOP for helping me and encourage you to consider working with them during your MBA admissions process.
