I was a mid-career professional in my early thirties when I started my journey with Scholar Strategy (SS). Tired with the monotonous job, and frustrated with corporate politics, I was probably going through a ‘mid-career’ crisis, not really sure where I wanted to go. This is when Nistha came to my rescue and trust me she is the best counsellor I have ever had in my life! Having spent 12 years in IT industry, I wasn’t really sure if I wanted to do an MBA and that’s when Nistha helped me figure that going for an interdisciplinary master’s program (such as MEM/MIMS/MIS) might be a good idea. The best part about Nistha is that she never imposes here ideas on you, rather, she would ask such right questions which will eventually help you figure out your own answers!

Managing a decent GMAT score, we embarked on the journey of applications. I was not sure how my 12 years of experience would play out (might have been a negative factor!) and Nistha too was handling such an applicant for the first time. But as best as she is, we cracked it really well. She worked really hard and made sure I come up with my unique story and that’s what I believe made all the difference in my essays and LORs. She guides, motivates and pushes you to your maximum, and that truly reflects in the results.

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 players in this domain who are primarily focused on their business, Scholar Strategy 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!!
