Applying for MBA programs is a grueling process. Sooner or later you will come to the realization that an advisor / consultant will ease the pain a bit. Last year, when I finally started looking for some help, I was looking for a few things out of my consultant.
– Help me create a strong narrative throughout my application.
– Help me with the core essay writing process to ensure that my ideas are clear and powerful to the reader.
– Provide meaningful insights on distinct strategy, targeted for specific schools.
Square One Prep far exceeded my expectations on each of my requirements above and then some, which likely explains why I got a scholarship. During the essay writing process, my advisor would not settle for an OK approach. If your essay did not hit a truly compelling answer to the ‘core question in the essay’, he continues to talk to you about that topic and subtly inspires you to think beyond the usual. He has this unique ability to inspire you to dig deeper and come up with a real and compelling answer to core questions at hand. He helped me prepare an honest yet powerful narrative for my applications and was just as invaluable when it came to preparing me for my interviews. He is a genuine, mature and caring human being and you are sure to enjoy the time you spend working with him and more so learning from him.
