Square One Prep Overview
About Square One Prep
Square One Prep is a full-service consulting company that offers 24/7 support for applicants working their way through the MBA admissions process. They also offer support with the EMBA for clients who are going down that route. They claim a success rate of about 80% for getting first-time applicants into schools, and 86% for people who are reapplying.
This company offers two types of services.
The main choice is their Comprehensive Services package, which starts with an assessment of candidacy and an application development schedule, then moves through the process of choosing schools, creating resumes, and generally applying to each school. As part of this comprehensive package, applicants receive as many mock interviews as they’d like to have, helping to better prepare them for any interviews they’re invited to.
Square One Prep also offers hourly services as well, and their site includes a full breakdown of the estimated time spent on each item. This helps applicants get a sense for both how long it will take and how much they can expect to pay.
The level of services offered include:
Assessment of your candidacy relative to overall applicant pool (MBA or EMBA)
Application development schedule
Career narrative/admissions strategy
Essay topic selection and essay development/review
Recommender selection and letter of recommendation (LOR) package development/review
Waitlist response (if necessary)
