Meet our Founder
Nistha Tripathi, the founder of Scholar Strategy, is a Computer Science graduate from University of Illinois, Urbana Champaign 2007 and MBA-dropout from New York University 2011.
She is a certified neuroscience based career coach who specializes in helping people FIND THEIR PROFESSIONAL CALLING.
An ex-Wall Streeter and early employee in two of Manhattan based tech startups, Nistha is a gold medalist in high school and college. Scoring 2320/2400 in GRE and 740/800 in GMAT, she knows what it takes to crack exams or succeed academically.
She has advised 500+ candidates for MS/MBA applications and is proud of the results garnered. She also is an expert career coach who has helped many of these candidates go through the hard phase of finding internships and jobs.
What makes her truly unique is her added expertise in writing. She is a bestselling author and has published 3 books. This positions her well to not just advise candidates on what programs are right for them but bring out the best story they can tell in their applications.
Our book, MS Book: Smart Engineer’s Complete Guide to MS in USA, is a reference book for Engineers and why they should study abroad. It is filled with Nistha’s own experiences, lessons and the interviews of successful professionals and is touted by the readers as ‘most authentic advice out there’.
Our clients speak for us
I know that coming from US undergrad, I had advantages over many other students. But, I wouldn’t have received these results without your counseling and all the information I got from Scholar Strategy. You really pushed me to get the best out of me when writing my SOP and resume! I look forward to paying back by contributing to the Scholar Strategy community in the future. I first discovered Scholar Strategy through a friend in HK. I was recommended a few consulting services, but felt that SS had an edge. Usually for other services, you don't know who will be editing your SOP or they will only look into structure/grammar. As I read more about SS on the website and talked to you on the phone, I could really see you care about the content and have a strong background in CS/Data/Engineering.
I had admits from 9 out of 10 schools I applied to, including MIT and UC, Berkeley and scholarships from other three. I could not have asked for more! I eventually chose MIT. Had it not been for Nistha, I would have never even been able to make it to this embarking journey. Unlike many other counselors who are primarily focused on their business, SS is here to make real difference in people’s life/career and Nistha lives by those values. If you are someone who is truly looking forward to learn and make a difference through a master’s, there cannot be a better place than Scholar Strategy and more dedicated, authentic and knowledgeable counsellor than Nistha. Trust me, you are in best hands at SS!
The honesty with which the SoPs were reviewed was refreshing. The best part was, I was still writing each word of the SoP on my own, with the best possible feedback I could have gotten. It’s the way its supposed to be. Also, the insight Nistha offered to help me in selecting the right schools to apply to was invaluable.
