I just got into Columbia and owe it all to Square One Prep. With an undergrad GPA that was barely a 2 out of 4 and a 620 GMAT score, I was sure that no top 20 program, much less top 10, would give me a serious look!
With Square One Prep in my corner offering strategies, insights and support, I reconsidered what I could accomplish. They helped me understand what matters most to admissions committees and see that I shouldn’t underestimate what I can accomplish with Square One properly educating and guiding me. Their thoughts on my initial goal narrative were tough, but sharp. Their reviews of my work were even tougher, but transformative. Their mock interview was beyond tough, but boy did it work.
I am still in shock – I can’t wait to get started at Columbia in the fall!
