Why you should work with us?

We are not counselors, we are more like mentors. And we are building a network community between successful students and aspiring students. We believe that current students and graduates can offer best advice to prospective students – so why not build that community itself? When you take any package with us, you automatically become a part of this network and can access our contacts and resources. We would like you to avail these resources and once you come out with flying colors, give back to the community by being a mentor!

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.
