I really liked the way Nistha handles SOP and LOR reviews patiently. I am glad to be part of the Scholar Strategy society.
Praneeth, Stonybrook (CS)
Thank you so much for guiding me through the applications. Without your guidance, I might not have applied to CU Boulder and definitely would not have gotten through. I am happy to share that I got through Google, Amazon, Salesforce and Spotify for my summer internship.

The time I approached Nistha, honestly I was skeptic about my profile and admission prospective. Due to tight schedule at job, I couldn’t do much justice to my Gre score and was pretty late for my application process(December). But following Nistha’s guidelines, I have been able to crack seven universities as of now which includes TAMU(for comp engineering). Best part of scholarstrategy is Nistha will make you work on your SOP/Profile in a manner that important aspects of your profile are well h…

Most places don’t encourage you to apply to ambitious schools – they ask you to only apply to universities where you will almost certainly get in (the ‘safety’ schools), so that they will definitely have a ‘success’ story. Nistha’s different. Not only does she encourage you to apply to ambitious schools, she also helps you narrow down on the ones which match your interests best. Her advice is encouraging, and also practical at the same time; you can definitely see that she’s been through all thi…

I would like to thank Nistha for her constant support during my application season. What I like about her is that she is very candid and straightforward. I drastically improved my SOP and it was UNIQUE. She always provided feedback which could really help see things which are usually neglected. I got good admits and in case I wish to go for further studies, I know i will get in touch with her.

I was skeptical about online counseling for my MS Application but now I am happy that I took a leap of faith by using ScholarStrategy. Nistha doesn’t spoon-feed you with SOPs and that’s not a bad thing because it is your story and who can tell it better than you. She makes suggestions and edits until your essay conveys exactly what you want to. When I started my essay I was clueless, but when I completed it, I was happy that I am presenting myself in the best possible way to the admissions co…

Scholar Strategy is for people who are looking for a mentor and not a typical counselor. Working with Nistha has been great. She helps you come up with a unique story of your own for the SOP and this I believe is one thing that makes your application stand out. She was available on mails throughout the process, giving honest and practical suggestions. A special mention to our closed Facebook group called ‘Scholar Strategy gang’, this group’s peer-help has been amazing. Thank you, Nistha!
Suchitra, Syracuse (MIS)
Working with Nistha was a great experience as she meticulously helped me form a strategy for the SoP . Throughout the application period , there were numerous discussions and iterations , the final version of SoP looked much better than I had envisaged . I don’t think the admits would have been possible without her guidance. Thanks Nistha !
Akash, Georgia Tech (ECE)
I highly recommend scholar strategy because unlike other Counselling agencies, it helps aspiring students to work on SOP on their own. No one spoon feeds which infact is better and efficient way of advising. Ironically I feel more independent and confident if and when I apply to more universities and might skip counselling sessions in the future. The best part is that by joining scholar strategy one becomes a part of a highly interactive and vibrant network of students studying or applying … cr…
Raghav, ND (MEM)
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.
