Hear from our students and their parents

Ruchi’s students and their parents call Ruchi, “An admissions advisor who goes the extra mile to give me personal attention and ensure me the best possible admissions outcome.”

Ruchi helped my daughter edit her essays. She was very prompt in providing in-depth feedback, all of which was very targeted. Her feedback applied to the school she helped my daughter with specifically, which helped her break out of the generic supplemental essay model which we found my daughter sliding into. Ruchi also helped my daughter edit her main Common App essay. Her feedback on that was invaluable and got to the heart of the purpose of the Common App and what is most effective for a personal statement. Ruchi gave us individualized attention and was accessible throughout the process. My daughter was admitted to her top choice, Columbia University, so Ruchi’s assistance was valuable!

Last year, I didn’t know college consultants existed. 
A year later, I requested a consultation with Ruchi to ask basic questions, get an understanding and try to map it out myself. I immediately felt calm, connected and acquired lots of information. Shortly after leaving her office, I realized that I couldn’t do this process without her nor want to. As a single mom, I want to hold onto the special relationship I have with my son. I want these last two years to be as harmonious as possible. Having someone qualified, intelligent and thoughtful will help keep the peace.  Thank you. My son could not be in better hands.

Thank you Mrs. Ruchi S. Kothari for sitting with my sister and I and giving us useful insight about the college process, SAT tips, etc. which we would not have been able to take advantage of.
