Karthik Raj Profile

Karthik Raj, a high school student at the time, was looking for help with his university application. With guidance from Deepti he applied to some of the best universities in the world and was accepted into the University of Michigan, the University of Washington, and the University of Wisconsin. He decided to go to Michigan where he plans to get a bachelor’s and possibly even a master's in computer science.

Karthik's Testimonial:

I went to Brighter Prep since I had little to no idea how the university application process worked and they guided me diligently through the entire thing. Deepti helped review my essays and thankfully didn't let me lose focus of my goal even with my tough high school syllabus. Fortunately, they also provided classes for my SAT subject tests which were truly useful in my preparation. Brighter Prep were even kind enough to help me with my TOEFL. All in all, I am very grateful for their support and am indescribably appreciative for their aid.

Elvis Rodriguez Profile

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!

Hari's Testimonial: 

“It was a great pleasure to work with Varun, assisted by Roshan, during my applications for undergraduate studies abroad. My initial discussions with them helped me to identify my strength and finalize the right set of universities to apply for. They were of great help during the entire application process right from selection of universities and the courses until receipt of the offers of admission offers and scholarships. I felt very comfortable and confident that my university admission process was in the right hands. Thanks Varun and Roshan and trust you will continue to assist students like me in the future!“

Soumya's Profile:

Soumya, a CBSE student of Abu Dhabi with SAT score of 1320/ 1600, was ready to apply to multiple universities, but lacked the knowledge of application process as neither anyone in the family had applied earlier nor the school had any student guidance. With lots of questions on mind he met Varun to answer the numerous questions he has. He applied to Boston, Illinois, Michighan, Virginian Marryland and a few more of which he got selected in all the universities and was more than happy to accept the offer with scholarship from Boston university.

Soumya's Testimonial:

I had always idolized my father. The first time I saw my father struggling for my needs was when I decided to apply abroad for education. He lacked info but yet he knew the best way to get me selected to my perfect fit. He introduced me to Varun and Deepti at Brighter prep and informed that they will be helping me while I do my application to the universities of my choice. I had full faith on brighter prep as it was chosen for me by my father and it proved more helpful than what I thought. Each written work of mine was improved drastically, my resume was fully changed for good and I could not believe that I was selected by all the universities I applied to. The feeling I got taking help from brighter prep cannot be expressed in words. I am truly grateful to the brighter prep family for making my last year at Abu Dhabi smooth and transition smoother to university.
