Arushi's Testimonial:

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!

Sneha Somayan

Sneha Somayan is currently studying at University of California Berkeley in the Liberal Arts – College of Letters and Sciences. She graduated her high school from Dubai International Academy; and secured an ACT score of 31/36. Her favorite extra-curricular activity is community service and volunteering as she strongly believes in giving back to the society.

Sneha's Testimonial:

My family and I would like to thank Varun and Roshan for their support and guidance for almost 2 years during which I appeared for the ACT, completed my college applications with essays and until the final selection at UC Berkeley. They were always available to meet with us in person and on Skype and gave us proper guidance every step of the way. Varun took the time to understand my preferences and helped with identifying the right Universities that I should be applying to and we had very useful discussions for the essays and applications. Roshan was always available to ensure that all applications and essays were ready and submitted on time. During the entire 2 years that we worked with Brighter Prep, we always felt that we made the right decision to work with them. I would strongly recommend them for commitment and expertise.

Rishabh Nigam

Rishabh Nigam is pursuing a dual major in Game Design and Animation, with minor in Computer Science at Purdue Polytechnic Institute, West Lafayette. Being a passionate programmer, Rishabh applied to many top universities for major in Computer Science and Gaming, and received offers from Denver, Drexel, Northeastern and many other universities. He graduated high school from the Indian curriculum secured a score of 1340 in his SAT.

Rishabh's Testimonial

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.
