Our clients speak for us!

  • The personal chat helped me figure out how my SOP should look like. Nistha patiently reviewed all my SOP and LOR drafts with perfection. Most importantly, the SS community is huge, and there was always a senior to help me out with my questions, and interactive webinars were very helpful.

  • Nistha is very critical with the SOP and the LORs. She pushes students to get the best out of them. This might sometimes feel hectic and students might feel that whatever they've already written would be enough. But, trust me Nistha knows what is correct. She has been in this industry for a quite a while now. Nistha pays a lot of importance to the fact that the overall profile including resume, SOPs and LORs are an important aspect to the college application. Merely having a good GRE/TOEFL would not suffice. Thanks a lot Nistha for your help!

  • My experience with Scholar Strategy was life changing. Nistha made me realize my true potential and I was able to get into some of the top Universities in the world. Having worked with a different counseling agency before joining Scholar Strategy made me realize how different Nistha’s approach is and what I liked the most is the timely manner in which everything is taken care of, starting from school selection to SOP and LORs. I feel the one on one conversation I had with Nistha motivated me and gave me a clear perspective of what to expect from Scholar Strategy and the whole application process. My SOP went from mediocre to exceptional due to the efforts put by Nistha. I am happy to join UIUC which is Nistha’s alma mater. I hope to make her proud. Thank you, Scholar Strategy.

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.
