Enrolling with Scholar Strategy made all the difference, it was the same profile as last year.
Somesh (Prod Mgmt & Design) - Gatech, Berkeley, Dartmouth
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… Read more

After a disappointing application cycle for Fall 20 where I received rejects from all of my preferred universities, I reached out to Nistha and team for help for my Fall 21 applications. From the get go, the process is so streamlined and smooth. I received emails about next steps and how to go about everything. Nistha is very focused and has the ability to find notice and point out even the most minute details that make a huge difference in the quality of me essays and applications. The di… Read more

I pinch myself from time to time to make sure that this isn’t a dream. Because CMU has always been my dream as far as I can remember and Scholar Strategy helped me achieve that dream. After talking to around 10 counselors in Delhi, a friend recommended Scholar Strategy to me. I was completely clueless and misguided. Nistha brought me on the right track and was straightforward to me about my chances. I believe in the saying ‘The more I practice, the luckier I get’ and so does Nistha. If y… Read more

Thank you so much, Nistha. It would not have been possible without your guidance. The admit from UChicago was a dream come true. I still believe that the turning point for all my applications was the SOP. I don’t have enough words to thank you. Keep up with good work.

Having worked with Nistha to design my application strategy, I would say she is amazing and provided me really insightful feedback on SOP and assisted in shortlisting of schools. She gave me the confidence to apply for ambitious schools and promptly addressed my queries over e-mails. The best past of the Scholar Strategy service is that you’ll be certain of the timelines as to when you will receive the feedback. Their services will be a good fit for people who look for a mentor to guide them, th… Read more

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!… Read more

Scholar strategy has been of great help during my entire application process and I hope it keeps on doing well and helping others like me.
Saumya Gulati, Ohio State, Columbia (MS Chemical Engg)
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)
At Waterloo, apart from an initial first term scholarship of $1800, I got TA which pays my living expenses for almost 4 months (~$3500). Last but not least, I am very thankful for the help and guidance throughout my application process. It was invaluable. My initial and final statements were miles apart in quality. Same with my LORs.
