Hear from Our Students"
Truly, with all honesty, I can say that the team at CollegeCore Education is the best in the country for overseas education applications. Urvashi Ma’am and her team have not just served as counsellors but as mentors and instructors. Unlike other counselors, their assistance is not restricted to just monthly meetings but have assisted me at odd hours of the day for the smallest of doubts. I can proudly say that I have a 100% strike rate and I have gotten into all colleges that they have assisted me to file applications for. Every application is carefully supervised by them to achieve perfection. I highly recommend you to trust CollegeCore if you are considering overseas education.
With college admissions becoming an increasingly challenging process with each passing year, having the correct guidance to secure the right university for you is of utmost importance. Starting my journey with CollegeCore towards the end of 11th grade, their team has worked non-stop with me to ensure my application was as strong as it could possibly be. Working with Simerna Ma'am was by far the best experience I had, she was always willing to help me out with the smallest (stupidest) of questions I had, never once getting frustrated with the endless barrage of doubts. She was there for me at all times of the day, be it 2am or 2pm and it's safe to say I would've been lost in this process without her guidance. Urvashi Ma'am has also been extremely supportive throughout the entire process, going through multiple conversations with me before I finalised my university list, carefully taking into account what was important and best for me. To anyone considering CollegeCore, I can recommend them without any hesitance whatsoever.
Very focused and professional approach and to top that was the personalised attention that we got which to my mind was like icing on the cake. Right from the time we went to College Core they understood our needs and helped us navigate through the entire process in a very smooth and methodical manner.
The college application process, which seemed extremely intimidating at first, was made extremely manageable and somewhat effortless with the help of Urvashi Ma’am and Simerna. Since I joined in June 2019, they’ve helped me build my college profile, improve my essay writing skills, select the right colleges and fill out applications. Moreover, they also encouraged me to push myself and take up challenges that would give my college profile an edge. The editor was also extremely helpful because she not only helped me brainstorm ideas for my essays but also made me develop skills that I’m certain will help me in the future. I can’t thank the CollegeCore team enough for all that they have done for me!
Nowadays, college planning and even high school tend to be a tad strenuous, maybe even overwhelming. However, I was fortunate enough to be associated with CollegeCore, who set me on the correct path to college abroad by helping me with anything and everything- from Harvard's Summer School to ED II at Tufts to managing co-curricular activities and academics, choosing the suitable subjects in high school for my college major, to ensuring I adhered to deadlines (which, if you know me, is a Herculean task in itself). Accessibility was never an issue; it was actually the other way around, with the team staying up with me until midnight to ensure I submitted applications timely to Urvashi Ma'am (being the hard yet doting taskmaster that she is) calling me at 7 in the morning to ensure I was ready for online competitions. CollegeCore was quintessential in setting me on the right track to college planning, smoothening the seemingly bumpy road of college admissions abroad. Honestly, if you're adamant like me about going to college abroad, CollegeCore is all you need, and it's never too early to start.
CollegeCore has been instrumental in shaping me as a person. They have dealt with my college application process with utmost dedication and patience. During the whole process, not once did I feel overburdened with work because they guided me so well. I would not have been able to get into my dream colleges if it wasn’t for them! Grade 11 was focussed on profile building where my entire profile was created in accordance with my desired major and extra-curricular activities while Grade 12 was solely dedicated to my college applications and essays. In fact, Urvashi Ma’am should be given full credit for motivating me towards founding so many organisations and ventures. She helped me channelise my interests into something meaningful and I’ll be forever grateful to her for that. Everything was so scheduled that all my essay writing portion was completed in May itself. I sincerely thank Charu ma’am for pushing me to work towards my goals. Even with the time difference, not once did she make me feel that she was unavailable for me. Each time I needed her, she was always there. Be it helping me brainstorm ideas for my essays or just filling out my application, she helped me constantly. She’s helped me with one of the most crucial parts of the application, the activity list. From suggesting me what activities to take up in order to enhance my profile to helping me fit the descriptions within the given word limit. The job wasn’t easy but she made it all look so simple that I had nothing to worry about! 🙂 The past two years have not just been ordinary, they’ve been life changing for me. I’ve been groomed to write good essays because of the editorial team. Initially when I had joined CollegeCore, I used to be really scared of how pathetic I was at essay writing but 2020 was a game changer! The entire team helped me write some of the most wonderful essays! A big thank you to CollegeCore for making me the person I am today!
It has been an extraordinarily amazing journey with CollegeCore . The kind of dedication , continued support and guidance they have provided to my daughter Saisha Vedi is unmatched. I can’t thank Urvashi and Simerna enough for their sincere efforts every step of the way . You both are a blessing for Saisha 🙂 Thank u soooooo soooo much both of u! Comes straight from my heart!
The personalized attention and support I have been given at CollegeCore has helped me achieve my goal and turn my dreams into reality. I would especially like to thank Charu ma’am for her unconditional support and pushing me to be the best version of myself.
With the help of CollegeCore I was able to get into my dream college. The guidance offered by the team streamlined the college admission process. The feedback offered on college essays by the team really helped me in improving my essays. In my experience, Urvashi ma’am and her teams constant support really helped me to get through bad times and this allowed me to gather my focus. I am extremely thankful to the entire team.
I loved how I could interact with my counsellor without the fear of being judged at CollegeCore. They really helped me achieve my goals by helping me build my CV and involve me in different activities which I, normally would not have done. The best part of the process was the ease of finding solutions to different problems which were arising during the application process.
The most important thing for a student at my age is proper guidance and someone who understands him/her. The day I walked into the office it felt just like home. Urvashi Ma'am and Sonu Ma'am were just so welcoming and understanding. They helped me grow as a person while instructing me towards a better future and I surely made the right decision coming to CollegeCore cause without them I do not feel that I would have been able to make it to U of T.
CollegeCore has an excellent admissions process that provides direction to those uncertain about their potential. The entire team is extremely helpful and just a phone call away. They are always there for you. College core helped me in receiving not only offers but also scholarships from the top universities of the world. It was always my dream to pursue my higher education overseas and College Core has made that possible . Finally, I would like to thank Urvashi ma'am and Simerna ma'am for their constant support and guidance
CollegeCore not only introduced me to a world of possibilities when it came to choosing my colleges, but they also guided me every step along the way as I endeavoured to achieve my goals. I never felt like I was misinformed or clueless, and always had a mentor to turn to at any time of need. Ms. Urvashi and Ms. Sonu Kohli, both paved a path for me to follow, in a way that writing any kind of college essay, or filling any application, was not only simplistic and easy, but also fun. I was shown different ways to express my achievements, and attain the best possible resume that would be sent to every college. Not only was I provided with a spreadsheet with deadlines which would help me tick off all milestones in record time, I was also given constant assistance and reassurance throughout the process. CollegeCore was by my side every step of the way, and I could not have done it without them.
I joined CollegeCore in the beginning of 11th grade . Like any other high school student I had doubts about even getting into college!! But thanks to Urvashi Ma’am and Anu Ma’am I felt calmer. They guided me throughout this roller coaster ride from selecting the 20 universities to correcting the never ending essays ... they were just a call away 🙂 .One thing is for sure that without them I would’ve been a lost case. Thank you CollegeCore for everything !! Important: Going to the office and working was the best part because you’d get to eat a lot of junk food!!!
I liked how convenient it was to reach out to my Councillor or anyone on the team. By setting up deadlines and an overall timeline for the application process I was able to go through the application process through ease.
CollegeCore has helped me throughout my college application process. Making my CV stronger, helping me with the tedious essays, weighing the correct college for me, counseling me on every minute aspect of my whole application are just a couple of many things that the people at CollegeCore helped me with. I stay in Dehradun and I have never met anyone at CollegeCore in person but then also there wasn't any communication gap between us. No matter what the situation was, they always had my back. I owe them a lot for help they have rendered me.
CollegeCore helped me achieve my goal of getting into University of Toronto. It was fun working with the team especially Anshruta who has been a constant help in completing my applications.
I got in touch with CollegeCore right in the middle of 12th grade. Seeing the cut offs in India, I was feeling as thought I might not end up in a good college after all. After meeting with Urvashi Ma’am, I felt much at ease. A lot of things were clear in my mind and the day after meeting with Ma’am, I got the entire list of colleges and programs where I could apply. They made the work much simpler for me. I was always in constant touch with Charu Ma’am through mail or calls. Another great thing about CollegeCore was that they were very honest with their feedback. If they thought something should've been on the essay or something shouldn't have been, they would always tell me to delete or add them. Urvashi Maam, Charu Ma’am were both always a phone call away. They were always very, very prompt in replying to our emails and that was amazing. Yes I am happy with the end result. I applied to 7 colleges and I've got acceptances from 6 of them. This wouldn't have been possible without CollegeCore. Thank you for helping me and guiding me every step of the way. I already had a lot of pressure of 12th grade, you guys just helped me reduce some aspects of it. Ps: I loved coming to your office. I got pizza and cake 😛
My journey with CollegeCore was rather short, but I enjoyed each and every moment of it. I knew I could rely on Urvashi Ma'am for good advice, but I have to say, each and every member of the CollegeCore team has played a huge role in helping me reach where I am today. In the beginning of Class 12, I was confused about what to do and I'm so glad I decided not to waste any more time and landed up at the CollegeCore office. After the first meeting, my confidence was boosted and I thought that I could get somewhere. The entire team came together and helped me through my application process. They did not spoon feed me but they were there at every step to guide me and make sure that I do not so something wrong. Months passed quickly and now I have been accepted into all the 7 colleges I applied to in Canada. I couldn't thank the CollegeCore team enough for their support and guidance. (I do apologize for my grammatical errors in the passage, I know Disha would be dying to edit this just like she helped with my essays, I promise I'll do better in college ☺)
