I am thrilled to have been accepted into Wharton-Lauder with a fellowship!
Going into round 2, I felt very anxious because I was starting things late and wanted to re-take my GREs and visit my top choice schools while I was writing my personal statements with SOP. My consultant helped me structure a timeline to let me accomplish all these things and was EXTREMELY responsive to my questions and essay drafts. The business school application process is stressful, but I felt in great hands with SOP – I was confident that my essay submissions were going to be top-notch after reviews by my consultant and Kathryn. Personally, I felt that the timely back and forth edits on the essay content were the most valuable service – that alone made SOP worth the investment. I recall a tricky essay prompt for which I wrote 12 drafts — I was starting to give up and wanted to submit/get it over with. However, my consultant wasn’t going to let me submit sub-par work and he kept pushing/encouraging me to look at things from different angles and framing until I got it right. He never showed any frustration while we worked together and I have no doubt that my acceptance/fellowship came as a result of the high quality materials we crafted together.
Thank you SOP for all of your help!!
