“Shaifali helped me find myself amongst the various moving parts of my life…she was able to break each step down into manageable and meaningful pieces, with each step bringing me closer to a polished application. She guided me through the process and helped me assemble a storyboard true to myself. Through various brainstorming sessions and iterations of my essays with her, I was able to paint a story of my life and accomplishments with pride and confidence." 


– Accepted to Stanford

"Bottom line - all you have to do is look at the results....Shaifali is very thoughtful in her approach and her attention to detail is second to none....She worked with me to put together the best strategy given my different experiences.  Shaifali's suggestions when it came to my essays were spot on, and she was instrumental when it came to coaching my recommenders and prepare for my interviews... Whenever I had any doubt, she was always positive!  If you're applying to b-school, you want Shaifali at your side."

– Accepted to Harvard

"Shaifali was my guardian angel throughout my business school application process…from our very first phone call, I felt completely supported and understood. Shaifali listened to my career goals and she created a strategy to overcome my weaknesses (low quant score on GMAT) to get into a top school…I could not be more grateful for all of Shaifali's help. Teaming up with her for my applications was the best investment I ever made and is already changing my life.”
