Varun and Roshan played a huge part in my admissions process from start to finish as they continuously helped me in every aspect that I could possibly get confused about. They were always there to guide me and especially decide which universities would be a good fit for me as this was a really important aspect when it came to deciding which university I would ultimately go to. I want to sincerely thank them for all their help and support in helping me to make an important decision. I probably would not be enjoying my university experience as much as I am without their help!
