I initially heard about Square One Prep through a friend who highly recommended the hands-on and supportive approach applied by this organization. My decision to pursue an MBA was difficult; it took a lot of time to internally justify because of the financial and personal sacrifices involved.
Square One was extremely helpful throughout my decision-making process, which was more than year, and helped me understand the merits of obtaining an MBA in today’s ever-changing marketplace. The Company’s leadership from the top-down was superb and extremely informed about what will stand out in the eyes of MBA Admissions Committees. Once I started the process, my consultant made ample time to address my needs, while at the same time challenged me to put forth my best work. What particularly impressed me was that my consultant helped me think about the assigned essay prompts from angles I would not have considered on my own and that would make me to stand out.
I would highly recommend Square One to any of my peers. With their help, I procured a spot in the one program I applied to: Stern’s Spring Part-time MBA program. Because of them I am about to start a new phase in my life journey that I am confident will help me get to the next level in my career.
