Michelle Thomas, a student of the American University of Sharjah, applied as a transfer student after her first year to many top universities in the US. She was accepted to UIUC, Purdue, Boston University, and many other universities. She chose University of Wisconsin Madison as her top choice to study her undergraduate major in International studies. Michelle is an all rounder, and takes great interest in community service and volunteering activities. Her dream is to be a part of the UN in the future.

Michelle's Testimonial

I would like to extend my heart felt gratitude to Varun and Roshan, without whom studying at UW-Madison wouldn’t be a reality. While the process of transferring universities is usually a difficult task, with their help I could sail smoothly through the procedure. Right from coming up with a list of universities that would suit my potential, brainstorming on essays and to preparing the application for the university and Visa, I had unwavering support from them. After hearing back from colleges, their objective advice helped me take the right decision of accepting UW Madison. I am extremely thankful for all the help they have given me in the process of transferring to Madison. Great Job Varun and Roshan!

She was accepted to many top universities which included Boston University, Indiana Bloomington, Case Western Reserve, Northeastern University, UIUC in the US, and UBC, York and Western in Canada.

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!

Elvis Rodriguez

Elvis Rodriguez, graduated high school from Dubai International Academy with exceptional academic grades in his final IB year; and secured a 32/34 on his ACT. Elvis applied for majors in Economics and Statistics to universities in the US and the UK, and received offers from many top universities like University of Michigan Ann Arbor, University of Texas at Austin, University of Washington, UC San Diego, Purdue, UIUC, Wisconsin Madison, UM Twin Cities, Warwick, UCL, UBC and many more. He accepted his offer from University of California Los Angeles for the undergraduate program in Statistics, and Mathematics of Computation.

Elvis's Testimonial:

"I vividly remember my first meeting: entering the room, I was eager to discuss my future beyond high school and to share ideas, yet anxious to meet unfamiliar faces. I stared at the clock as it struck two, signaling the start of the meeting. In enter Varun and Roshan; with introductions aside, we got straight to business. “So, what are your interests?” Hesitant at first, I explained in detail what I intended to pursue. Noting down my inputs, they promised to accommodate my interests, and they delivered; through dedication and support, college lists, test preparation, cups of coffee, and numerous drafts of essays, I was accepted into UCLA.

There are not enough words in this paragraph to express my gratitude for Varun and Roshan, and their work. I can assure prospective students that they are in good hands at Brighter Prep."

Wishing you luck in your future endeavours at the JLT office!
