About Critical Square

Critical Square is a firm founded on one simple principle: each candidate is unique. In an increasingly competitive environment, the way we go about helping clients hasn’t changed one bit and that’s because our process delivers results. We’re more than just admissions consultants. We’re mentors and friends as well and that’s at the heart of everything we do. Your goals and passions are what make you unique and we work with you to put together the perfect application that conveys that. We don’t write your essays for you or give you materials to leverage, because that isn’t fair and that isn’t you. But we stand by you every step of the way to make sure you’re prepared to navigate a complex and important process.
