Our clients speak for us!

  • I know that coming from US undergrad, I had advantages over many other students. But, I wouldn’t have received these results without your counseling and all the information I got from Scholar Strategy. You really pushed me to get the best out of me when writing my SOP and resume! I look forward to paying back by contributing to the Scholar Strategy community in the future. I first discovered Scholar Strategy through a friend in HK. I was recommended a few consulting services, but felt that SS had an edge. Usually for other services, you don't know who will be editing your SOP or they will only look into structure/grammar. As I read more about SS on the website and talked to you on the phone, I could really see you care about the content and have a strong background in CS/Data/Engineering.

  • I had admits from 9 out of 10 schools I applied to, including MIT and UC, Berkeley and scholarships from other three. I could not have asked for more! I eventually chose MIT. Had it not been for Nistha, I would have never even been able to make it to this embarking journey. Unlike many other counselors who are primarily focused on their business, SS is here to make real difference in people’s life/career and Nistha lives by those values. If you are someone who is truly looking forward to learn and make a difference through a master’s, there cannot be a better place than Scholar Strategy and more dedicated, authentic and knowledgeable counsellor than Nistha. Trust me, you are in best hands at SS!

  • The honesty with which the SoPs were reviewed was refreshing. The best part was, I was still writing each word of the SoP on my own, with the best possible feedback I could have gotten. It’s the way its supposed to be. Also, the insight Nistha offered to help me in selecting the right schools to apply to was invaluable.

Meet our Founder

I am Nistha Tripathi, founder of Scholar Strategy, a Computer Science graduate from University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign 2007 and MBA-dropout from New York University 2011. I worked successfully at Wall Street and New York Internet startups before moving back to India to start my own Internet ventures. From doing BE in India to studying MS and MBA from top universities, working with top employers in USA and starting something from scratch in India, I was exposed to diverse academic and professional challenges that helped me come up with the concept for Scholar Strategy.

I also love writing and am a published author. My second book, MS Book: Smart Engineer’s Complete Guide to MS in USA, is a reference book for Engineers and why they should study abroad. It is filled with my own experiences, lessons and the interviews of successful professionals and is touted by the readers as ‘most authentic advice out there’.

My latest book, No Shortcuts, is being hailed as the most awaited startup book of India – it features the in-depth interviews of 15 of India’s most popular and admired founders. It is now on Amazon.
