Scholar Strategy has great raves from happy students.
Nistha was introduced to me by a friend. I trusted my friend and have never looked back. Nistha is very professional and supportive. She has vast experience and transparency. If you are looking for honest advice and are ready to work hard, she can be a go to person to navigate you through the tedious process.
I dropped a year due to health issues and used that time to prepare for Masters in US. But this year gap was increasing and joining Scholar Strategy was a wake-up call. I was totally confused regarding the course to pursue and Nistha made it clear to me. She showed me the path to identify my passions. And from there on, the sail was smooth. The timely facebook posts, quora answers, her book, the presentations and the feedback on my documents are very valuable for me.
Working with Nistha has been a wonderful experience. It was due to her insightful SOP reviews that I was able to turn an average initial draft into a much more competitive SOP. The active Facebook community of Scholar strategy is an invaluable resource. Seniors provide advice and clear doubts on various topics like school evaluation, interview questions, job/internship/scholarship opportunities and VISA issues. More than anything else, Nistha really cares about your career and that is what sets her apart from other counselors.
Nistha is very professional in her approach. Genuinely interested to help you to present your best aspect. She directs and helps you to think hard about why do you want to pursue the program – this makes your SOP original and not inspired from hundreds of SOP templates out there. Dissatisfied with multiple consultancies in past, I was very skeptical before joining Scholar Strategy, but a conversation with Nistha and her straightforward nature, convinced me to sign up – I am glad I did. I got an admit from MSE, Carnegie Mellon.
Nistha really helped me get the best SOP out there, with every iteration that we went through. I being a reapplicant realized how coherent and concise my words looked, after the final version was approved. From shortlisting universities to mentoring as to which one we should join, Nistha has been a great mentor.
Amazing experience. Scholar Strategy gets the best out of a person! Would instantly recommend Scholar Strategy to anyone looking forward to pursue a master’s degree, especially in computer science.
Iowa State University has offered me Teaching Assistantship that covers 90% of my expenses. RIT offered 20% scholarship! Nistha’s way of helping me by teaching me to help myself has made this result possible!
I found out about Scholar Strategy on Quora and immediately got hold of the book by Nistha.
Once I had my scores in hand, I reached out to her for a feedback on my profile. And I am so proud of that decision.
Nistha has been a delight to work with. Some people might be surprised with her approach as there is no spoon-feeding, however that is exactly what sets her apart and helps you attain your goals realistically. 🙂
I have had a wonderful experience and am thankful for all the guidance I received from Nistha and the SS community. Thank Youu Nistha!
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. Moreover, Nistha was always available to clear any doubts over mail and reply to any query as soon as possible with honest and straightforward answers. 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.
SS helped me a lot during the application process. In addition to the help provided by Nistha, the SS community added more value to the package.
