I was a bit overwhelmed coming into the application process, and can unequivocally say that Square One Prep gave me the confidence, guidance, and cadence to put together applications of which I was truly proud. My consultant pushed me to dig deeper into the meaning behind my experiences, and she helped me articulate that in the most impactful and effective ways. I can’t stress enough how thoughtful the process is. Unlike other consultants I heard about through friends who were applying, she really took the time to get to know me as a person and understand what makes me tick. That dedication and depth made her advice and guidance so much more valuable! Not only was I constantly impressed by her remarkable expertise on every aspect of business school, but her upbeat, direct and witty attitude actually made the whole process a lot of fun! I really felt that she became a true friend and partner in my process as we worked together on my motivations, essays, and even my mock interviews.
To sum it up, my consultant was a true expert, and I felt that she genuinely cared about my applications as much as I did. I’m absolutely thrilled by the success I had, not just with getting into schools, but with getting scholarships as well. I still can’t believe that I’ll be attending HBS in the fall. I can’t thank Square One enough!!!
