I would like to extend my sincerest thanks and appreciation to all the faculty members of Brighter Prep for all the support and positivity they extended to me. Even though I was late to join and apply for my universities, they calmly guided me every step of the way. I came into my first meeting not knowing where I wanted to go or what I wanted to do, but the brainstorming sessions with Varun and Roshan were extremely helpful in deciding the right path for me. Once my application decisions came through, I had a hard time deciding between IU and Purdue University, but with the guidance of my counselors, I chose Purdue, and I feel like it was the right decision. Not only was it their guidance that helped me be where I am today, but it was also their excellent teaching staff that helped ace standardized tests like the IELTS, the TOEFL, and the SAT. Thank you, once again, for your continued support.
