A recent study shows that more than 50% people agree they would pursue a different degree if they could go back in time, in the hope of a different career trajectory. It is vital to identify and assess your talents, aptitude, skills, passion, and strengths to help you choose a college subject/major. We consider this process of matching your academics, aptitude and interest to the course/subject and career goals, very important. Your chosen profession will define you, describe you, and determine your life's direction.

We begin with an evaluation to help identify your core strengths and weaknesses, interests, aptitude, educational objectives, career goals, etc. We match these interests and aptitudes with educational programs that will foster your academic development. When appropriate, we will recommend psychological, academic, aptitude assessment. We spend time with you to identify your motivators for selection of right-fit course without prejudice.

We support the students' decision to apply multiple countries or course majors in the same application cycle, as long as it is a course/major of choice.

As the number of applications rise every year, colleges evaluate more than just good grades in a student. Internships, extra curriculars, sports, voluntary work, leadership positions, initiatives, team participation, etc, all work to build your profile for college admission. They provide valuable insights into student’s passions, motivation, and ability to balance academics and activities. While building a profile, the eventual aim is to stand out as a well-rounded personality with diverse interests, but a student should not end up looking like a Jack-Of-All-Trades and a Master-Of-None. We helps you achieve the balance by carefully crafting your profile. Building a student profile for admission to a dream college can start as early as 2-3 years before application process starts.

To navigate the college admissions process smoothly, we help keep track of which applications need what information and submission timelines. We take much of the stress out of the process by guiding you about every component, be it the form, personal statement, essays, resume, LORs, transcripts, list of activities, etc.

Most believe that the essays and SOP are the deciding factor for a college Admissions Committee to accept a student. They help the reviewers gain an understanding of your background and interests besides academic and career goals. You can demonstrate what sets you apart from other applicants and give them a peek into your perception, passion, and determination. This helps the Admissions Committee determine if you are a good match for the university and program to which you are applying. These components are the only part of your application that are totally in your control, hence they should be well-crafted. Take your time to tell them your story and how your goals align with the University offerings. With professional content writers on our team, we offer suggestions and ideas for your essays, SOps, LoRs, scholarship essays, resume, etc. We curate your written work and identify areas of improvement.

The interview is very important- you get only one chance to make a good impression. Unlike other admission requirements, it cannot be rewritten, or retaken. You have a short window to impress, so you need to focus on the essentials, get to the point quickly and prepare to adapt to various interview styles. Besides the content, factors such as your facial expression and body language are important in a video essay. We help you get it right!

These applications are made by students who are seeking funding or recognition for high academic excellence. They are similar to the SoPs, but their aim is to make you shine. This is your chance to elaborate on skills and expertise or challenges not highlighted in other sections of your application. Outline how you meet the scholarship criteria with genuine passion and enthusiasm. Writing about an experience or interest could highlight your strengths. We help reviews scholarship options and financial aid and help with brainstorming, outlining and revising the final draft.
