I am absolutely thrilled to share my experience with Square One Prep, with Kathryn, and particularly with my advisor Wilson. Thanks to their expert guidance, I was able to achieve my dream of being accepted into several top MBA programs, including Harvard, Wharton, MIT Sloan, Booth, Columbia, Kellogg, and Yale. (7/7!!)
As a military veteran, I knew that I had a unique set of experiences that could set me apart in the MBA applicant pool, but I struggled to quantify and articulate these experiences in a way that would resonate with admissions committees. Wilson was incredibly patient and thorough in helping me unpack my military background, and he helped me identify key metrics and achievements that I could use to showcase my leadership skills and strategic thinking.
Beyond helping me translate my military experience, Wilson and the team at Square One Prep were instrumental in developing my career narrative and helping me articulate my long-term goals. They provided invaluable support in resume building and essay development, helping me highlight my strengths and unique perspective while crafting a compelling and cohesive story that resonated with admissions committees.
I cannot overstate the impact that Square One Prep had on my MBA admissions journey. Their team was incredibly responsive, flexible, and supportive throughout the entire process, and Wilson went above and beyond to help me succeed. I have already referred several military colleagues to their program, and I would not hesitate to recommend Square One Prep to anyone looking for expert guidance and support in achieving their MBA goals. Thank you, Wilson and the entire Square One Prep team, for helping me achieve my goals!
