Nistha is very professional in her approach. Genuinely interested to help you to present your best aspect. She directs and helps you to think hard about why do you want to pursue the program – this makes your SOP original and not inspired from hundreds of SOP templates out there. Dissatisfied with multiple consultancies in past, I was very skeptical before joining Scholar Strategy, but a conversation with Nistha and her straightforward nature, convinced me to sign up – I am glad I did. I got an … Read more

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.

Nistha is an awesome person. Always up to help you and guide you. Thanks Nistha for so many SOP reviews. I don’t think, it would have been possible without your help and guidance.
Shilpi, Stonybrook (CS)
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.
Rafi Alam, Waterloo (MS CS)
I could see the difference with each review, and the final draft was completely different. Her comments gave my words a soul and made them seem more alive. I was also able to link each of my experiences to my career goal through the brainstorming session, which improved not only my sop but also my future plan.

SS helped me a lot during the application process. In addition to the help provided by Nistha, the SS community added more value to the package.

Being an international student herself in the past, Nistha can understand the perspective of the upcoming graduate aspirants and help them accordingly. Every nuances of the SOP and LOR drafts gets thoroughly reviewed before being finalised and the IMAP session are great for career advise. I really enjoyed the overall experience.

Nistha was very helpful in giving advice about sop. She also organised webinars regarding internships which were quite helpful.

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

I found out about Scholar Strategy on Quora and immediately got hold of the book by Nistha. Once I had my scores in hand, I reached out to her for a feedback on my profile. And I am so proud of that decision. Nistha has been a delight to work with. Some people might be surprised with her approach as there is no spoon-feeding, however that is exactly what sets her apart and helps you attain your goals realistically. 🙂 I have had a wonderful experience and am thankful for all the guidance I … Read more
