“I feel very fortunate to have had Amanda’s assistance when I finally sat down to apply for various graduate-level programmes. She not only insightfully guided me in my application strategy, but is a wonderful editor who knows that even the most complex of ideas can be explained in easily understandable terms. Her valuable feedback on my written work (Proposal, SoP, and Writing Sample), helped my writing to be coherent and devoid of any inconsistencies.
I am sure that those of you who are looking to apply abroad will really benefit from having her on your side. Seeking her out for help is undoubtedly an excellent decision. And I can assure you that it will be a rewarding experience.”

” Working with Meghna and Amanda was an absolute pleasure. Having previously worked with consultants from one of the best global firms, I can confidently say that my experience with Meghna and Amanda was several notches better.
Through their gentle nudges and many long afternoon conversations, I was able to relive my past experiences and truly express the best of what I had to offer. Applying to several graduate programs while working can be a daunting task but their methodical and structured support ensured that every application was the best it could be. Their professionalism clearly stood out during every interaction and they made sure that I was never rushing to make any deadline.
From helping me decide the contours of an essay, to redrafting a resume and finally preparing for an interview – every aspect of my interaction with them was perfect. While I prepare to move into my dream school, I cannot imagine going through the application process without their support.” – 2019 admit, MIT Sloan

“Meghna & Amanda at the Collegiate Path are great resources for anybody considering a post-graduate degree. Having known Meghna through mutual friends, I reached out to her for help with the formal application process. The assistance and interactions were in a very consultative and structured approach – from getting the essays done, peer reviews and mock interviews! They are extremely well experienced, been through the system themselves and very professional/quick with their turnaround time. Very trustworthy and can be certain of a good outcome!” -2018 admit, Columbia Business School

“Amanda was an enormous help for me in preparing my application for the museum fellowship–from assisting me in the conceptualization of my proposal to the presentation of my own professional experience.

“Can’t wait to work with you again. First off, thanks again for two insightful sessions of brainstorming and writing. You guys really helped me express myself to produce the best essay I could.

“Dear Amanda, I personally want to thank you and Meghna for putting in a lot of effort and your support in all this. It is truly amazing to have the both of you helping me for university.” – Rohan, 2016-2017 college applicant

“Amanda was a huge help with my daughter’s admissions process. There are hundreds of high-quality U.S. colleges and universities to choose from. Amanda helped us figure out which universities would be a good match for my daughter based on her skills, interests and personality, and based on the financial aid that we would need. She then guided my daughter through the application process. Amanda gave us valuable insight into what the colleges are looking for in the applications, and even reviewed my daughter’s essays. As a result, my daughter was accepted to multiple colleges and universities. She will be headed to Smith College in the fall.”  – Emily Keller, 2015-2016 application cycle parent
