Nistha is a brilliant counselor and takes genuine interest in helping you out. Her inputs and pointers on how to shape your personal statement pushes you to create a well-structured and concise essay. I would definitely recommend her to anyone aspiring to study abroad.

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)]

I am really thankful for your help with my SOP. I am not planning to apply to any other programs since UW program was my first choice. I will be sure to share a good word with prospective candidates who reach out to me.

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.

I had parts of my application ready but I was still not able to glue them together in order to impress the admission committee. So I started seeking for a mentor – not the crooked local ones but an authentic reputed counselor who would give decisive opinions and statements about … Read more

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.

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 … Read more
