Square One was the best investment I made during my MBA application process.
As soon as I decided that I needed an adviser, I spoke with several MBA admission consultancies including a well-known industry leader, but none offered assessments as sincere and honest as Square One’s. Once I committed to working with Square One, my advisor responded with her commitment and the utmost personal assistance. At one point, we talked for 6 hours over the phone.
My advisor highlighted many parts of my past experience and qualities which I originally deemed insignificant, and strengthened my profile many times over. She also gave me clear reasoning behind all advice she offered, demonstrating her expertise. Even when things took an unexpected chaotic turn when one of my recommenders became difficult, my advisor not only showed full understanding, but also helped me choose an alternative recommender and patiently repeated the entire recommendation letter process from scratch.
I cannot thank Square One enough for my acceptance into INSEAD, my first-choice program.
