Working with Urvashi was a fabulous experience. They have been more like friends and have held Kairavi’s hand during every step of the admission process. What was most touching for me was how concerned they were that Kairavi should get her dream college. The results were coming out when we were in Japan but even then Disha was constantly in touch, checking in again and again to see if Kairavi has heard back from USC. Their personal interest and involvement made all the difference.
CollegeCore is such a happy and welcoming place for the kids. Thanks for everything!

What I liked most about CollegeCore was that they don’t work with students in isolation. Parents are copied on every mail and aren’t kept in the dark as to which colleges their child is applying to. Urvashi is as accessible to parents as she is to students about any doubts that they may have. Usually, parents are unacquainted with the college application process and Urvashi made it easier by breaking the entire process down. I would strongly recommend CollegeCore to all parents who want to explore the possibility of their child applying abroad.

As a student in London, what stood out was the flexibility CollegeCore provided. Flexibility in terms of geography and time-zone but also in terms of taking on my application at a late stage. They offered fantastic guidance with how to best portray the summative result of what my high school experience had lead to in the various essays and CV requirements, and they made the entire process of applying far less stressful for a 2nd year IB Diploma Candidate as myself, which was a welcome reduction in workload. They were also very adjusting with their communication and the obvious time difference and geographical barrier for someone going to high school in England seemed non existent with relation to the commitment that the team put into each response and follow up. All in all, I’m very glad to have had them handle my case so late, and to have their guidance see me off into an institution I’ve dreamed of attending for a few years now. Cheers!

When I first started out with the entire process, the most daunting aspect of it seemed to be the shortlisting of colleges and actually finding the ones that were “me”. CollegeCore played their part here to make this concern a negligible one for me with the master table of colleges/universities that they formulated on the basis of my profile and preferences. This helped me clearly evaluate where I stood and what measures I needed to take to make it to each of those schools.
Every and any question I had throughout the process was addressed to my satisfaction either through a phone call or a text or an email or a Skype session. I also remember a particular Skype session with Urvashi Ma’am a day before one of my first interviews. She took a mock interview for me and also sent across a list of all possible questions and topics of discussion that can arise via email.
Other than that, Urvashi Ma’am and the team are extremely kind and really care about their students. They are gentle and firm all at the same time and are always striving to bring the best out of their students.

Before working with CollegeCore, I had no idea about the application process. Urvashi ma’am was very accessible and is always ready to guide me. From editing essays to small doubts, CollegeCore has always been brilliant with their work. I still remember ma’am calling me to her house on a Sunday to help me since the deadline was approaching. I’m glad I chose CollegeCore.

While working with college core I always felt a sense of trust and confidence that Rohan will be provided the best guidance ever. And that was exactly true. Urvashi provided expert guidance starting from initial meetings right through the end of the process where admissions results were declared. The team was always accessible, responsive, kind, effective and above all is extremely knowledgeable in their work. What I experienced is that they completely treated Rohan’s admission process as their own. Their sense of oneness with their students and their expertise in their field is their USP. God bless Urvashi, Disha and the team. I am so glad we chose CollegeCore.
With lots of love, a very Happy Parent.

The admission process is undoubtedly tedious and seems to be quite daunting at first but with CollegeCore’s step by step guidance, I think I sailed through with few scars. Initially I was quite clueless about what to write for my CommonApp essay but post the brainstorming session with Urvashi ma’am, ideas just seemed to flow and I’ve got to give credit to her amazing knack for understanding her students. I would also like to thank editors whose feedback on my essays was invaluable. Thank you CollegeCore!

To a procrastinator like myself, the entire application process seems overwhelming and daunting. Thanks to the constant support and guidance provided by the entire CollegeCore team, I was able to complete my application in time and get into my dream colleges.
The essay brainstorming session was the best because it gave me a plethora of ideas for my essays. Also, the response time of the feedback provided by the editing team left me dumbstruck. Urvashi ma’am motivated me at each stage and cleared even the most trivial doubts I had. As a student in boarding school without having my parents to support me, I truly got into my dream college is proof enough that the CollegeCore team is amazing and dedicated. I earnestly recommend it to anyone interested in applying abroad.
