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!

"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!
Karthik Raj's 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.
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.
