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!

Data analysis is more important than just having the statistics. Consultancies have the data – the statistics about what range of scores maps on to admits in which school. But more often than not, the mapping gets highly nonlinear !.. ;( You could never quite guess where a student might end up by just looking at his or her scores because the student might have a great research profile or publications too (which count a lot, in addition to having good marks). Now this profile requires a smart an… Read more

It’s not about getting low or high GRE and TOEFL score. It’s about the complete profile. Walking out with low score from centre disappointed me but Nistha’s guidance in making strong SOP/LOR/Resume made me eligible for getting into good universities. She is the only one who actually knows what admission committee needs. From start to end she was very handy and quick in evaluating profile and making it strong. As I can see student with more than 300 score in GRE got rejection from NEU, BOSTON. Bu… Read more

Being an IT guy, it was very difficult for me to set aside some time and prepare my SOP. I approached Scholar Strategy and spoke to Nistha. She was very helpful and came up with a plan that was tailor made. All her SOP reviews were to the point and insightful. Fall 2015 was crazily competitive and I’m sure Nistha’s guidance palyed a huge part in me secure an admission.

The best part about Scholar Strategy is “No Spoon Feeding”. You get to write your SOP in your own words unlike other consultants. Nistha’s suggestions and subtle changes have increased the quality of SOP significantly. She is frank and never hesitated to tell her if something is not going well. I got to learn a lot from her through this experience. Thanks a lot. 😀

I opted for counseling from Scholar Strategy primarily to select a college that suited my individual and technical needs. Nistha was a great help being open to any discussions and she focused over my particular interests. Her technical experience in the same field helped me better. I can say Scholar Strategy did great for me.

I was skeptical about online counseling for my MS Application but finally I would say it is one of the turning points in my journey for MS applications. Nistha is an amazing counselor she understands the students really well. At each and every iteration I realized that my SOP and LOR are getting better. Everything was well planned. Nistha’s valuable advice has helped me get admits from top graduate schools and realize my dream.
Sahil Nyati, CMU (MIS)
The essence of any SOP is your story that you want to convey the admission committee and Nistha helps in bringing out the same. Through Scholar Strategy I was able to stay focused and up to the mark with my MS applications.
Vinayak, Columbia, Gatech (MFE)
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.
Sahil, Columbia MSBA, TAMU, CMU, Washington (MIS)
When I started with my MS application process, I was clear that I required a mentor, who would guide me through the process, and not someone who would give me a free ride to an average university and ask me to feel grateful for it. Nistha proved to be the best mentor I could hope for. I always had to be at the top of my game while working with her. Right from university selection, to drafting my statement of purpose and letter of recommendations, her valuable feedback helped me excel. Her fee… Read more
