Really stoked about this. Thanks for all your help. The SOP really worked for this particular program’s objectives.

A very good approach to guidance..no spoon feeding. The best part about Scholar Strategy is the quality of mentoring by Nistha and support directly from the current students.

I initially decided that I would go ahead with my applications without a counselor as it proved to be quite futile when my elder sister used it. But after perusing through Nistha’s answers on Quora and the articles on her blog, I decided to go ahead with Scholar Strategy without a second thought! I was really impressed with her structured procedure throughout, which also comes from the fact that she’s been through this herself (a rarity among counselors!) She was very pragmatic with her suggest…

Nistha is very smart and she knows what she’s doing. She’s always available on mail for reviews and other questions as well. I think if you’re looking for a counsellor, she’s one of the best! [Admitted to Columbia (MSEE), Dartmouth (MEM), USC (MEM), Duke (MEM), TAMU (MIS), UMCP (MIS), UIUC (MSTM)]

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.

I visited 7 consultancies in Delhi before finalizing Scholar Strategy even though it was an online one. Nistha is a really amazing person! She is available round the clock to assist you. You drop her an email and she’ll respond in no time! If you really want to understand the complete ‘MS in US’ process and experience the best, Scholar Strategy is the one you are looking for! The fact that she herself has been through it twice makes you want to trust her even more! And, oh yes, Scholar Strategy …

I really liked the way Nistha handles SOP and LOR reviews patiently. I am glad to be part of the Scholar Strategy society.

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…

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.

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 …
