Square One Prep was essential to my securing offers at top schools, including my top choice – Columbia.
My advisor’s insight into the business world and the business school admissions process was greatly valued in my transition from the military to a top MBA institution. Throughout the application process my advisor helped me develop and refine a compelling story which tied my military experiences to my future career goals, and showed how each school could prepare me to achieve my career goals in consulting. Working with him, I was able to create a resume that effectively communicated my military experiences in terms that were attractive to MBA admissions committees. With his help I learned how to consistently weave “my story” into my essays, interviews, and various email and phone calls with admissions officers. I have recommended Square One Prep to my peers also considering an MBA when leaving the Military, and would not hesitate to use Square One Prep again.
