I am thankful to have worked with Kathryn and John because the MBA application process is an arduous process. The time and effort they took to help shape my story and career narrative speaks to how much they care about their clients.
My free consultation call with Kathryn, the founder, demonstrated how Square One Prep does not rush with potential clients but are committed to building a partnership. She even recommended the best pricing service for the schools I selected to save me money.
I am glad to have chose John as my advisor. John took the time to address my questions and concerns and made himself available to me – he did not hesitate to talk over the phone. I appreciated his creative writing background and even-keeled personality. Kathryn’s extensive knowledge and strategic advice were invaluable to my narrative and school selection. Despite a gap in my resume, they helped me get into two great schools.
I would recommend starting the process as soon as possible. Think about your story – what’s driving you to get a MBA and what career field you want to get into. Good luck to future applicants!
