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.
