After applying on my own the previous year with unfavorable outcomes, I decided to do some research into business school admissions consultants. When I reached out to Square One Prep, Kathryn spent a good hour on the phone with me, explaining their process and methodology but also hearing about what I wanted to do and my career thus far. She even looked over my materials from the year before and provided critique. I decided to engage SOP and was paired with Sarah Caputo, who advised me on my strategy and spent time with me on all the pieces of the application process. We spent a lot of time on my resume and on my essays, crafting the right story based on my wants and needs. Sarah was very patient with me and helped keep me on schedule so it was nice that I wasn’t rushing to check boxes before a deadline. I’m very glad that I worked with SOP because at the end of the day, I was accepted to all five schools that I had applied to – Wharton, Booth and Tuck.
