Square One Prep Success!


Knowing I had to overcome a low GPA, I started researching consultants to help strengthen my application. I called over 10 different companies and was wary about committing before I spoke to Kathryn at Square One Prep. I was instantly impressed. I had a list of target schools (rank 12-20), and on the introductory call with Kathryn she immediately looked over my profile and asked what I was thinking not applying to schools in the M7. I honestly thought I wouldn’t be competitive at those tiers of programs, but Kathryn convinced me to aim higher.

Fast forward to December 12th and a phone call from Kellogg offering me admittance, with a scholarship, to their MMM program, and I couldn’t be happier with my choice to work with Kathryn and her team! Still waiting to hear back from other schools, but I was also invited to interview at another one of my top picks.

Kathryn, Bailey, and my personal advisor Teresa, worked with me every step of the way and answered a million questions and concerns I had throughout the process, and helped me hit deadlines I would never had hit without their help given my work and travel schedule. With their guidance, I wrote and finalized an essay the day before the Kellogg submission deadline. While I didn’t use them for every school I applied for, I was able to leverage the materials for other schools, confident in the stories and information they helped me to craft.

Overall, I was really impressed with SOP and would recommend them to anyone who is unsure about the process. Was it expensive? Yes, but I worked it into my budget, and the return of being admitted to an M7 program with scholarship is a no brainer. Would I do it again? Without hesitation. Thanks so much to my SOP team!
