Applying to business school is a daunting and overwhelming process but I was fortunate to have Square One Prep guide me through it. First, after my consultant helped me understand my candidacy relative to the overall pool of candidates, an endeavor that took three phone calls that totaled more than 8 hours, she helped me decide which schools were the best fit for me. In fact, she convinced me to aim higher than I originally planned to aim. I was aiming really low due to my 560 GMAT score. Second, my consultant was unbelievably helpful with reviewing all of my application materials to make sure they were as strong as they could be without losing my voice and intent. Third, she was always there for me if I had any questions about the process—any questions at all. Ultimately, I was accepted to every school I applied to. I definitely could not have successfully gone through this process without Square One Prep’s help and sincerely recommend them to anyone applying to business school. Thank you!!
