Throughout the application process my advisor helped me develop and refine a compelling story. With his help I learned how to consistently weave "my story" into my essays, interviews, and various email and phone calls with admissions officers. I would not hesitate to use Square One Prep again.

Great service from
Square One Prep

Kathryn and Square One Prep was recommended by a close friend. I shared the application materials with her and during our first call, she immediately pointed out a few weaknesses in my essays. The value the Square One Team could provide was very obvious and I decided to partner with them.
