Perhaps like many of you, I was initially very skeptical about using a consultant for my MBA applications; how much could a third-party help in crafting what should be a very personal application?
I am here to tell you that, if you are looking to get help and want to get into your #1 choice, you should definitely work with Square One Prep. I am off to Wharton in a few months and I absolutely owe this opportunity and any future accomplishments to Square One Prep. Having just attended Wharton Welcome Weekend for all new admits from R1, I am more excited and thankful than ever.
My consultant took an extraordinary amount time and effort to understand my story and helped me establish a narrative that was not only genuine but also consistent with what business schools were looking for. My consultant was honest, flexible, timely, and meticulous. She really pushed me when I needed inspiration and encouragement. Her interview simulation was a hugely helpful process. Her engaging approach to this relationship really showed that she was personally invested in my success. Looking back, I am surprised that I even thought about doing this whole process on my own.
I have absolutely no doubt that without Square One Prep’s help I would not have gotten into Wharton.
