— SM, Harvard ($100K Scholarship)
I was working on my resume and essays at 1:30 am with Rajdeep. It helps to have access to your consultant when you have a hectic work schedule. Rajdeep understands how to extract the best from the applicant on their personal and professional achievements.

I would say AGs attention to detail is absolutely amazing because they really do not let you settle for less. I would go through numerous iterations to make sure I turn out a quality essay.
— RB, Wharton ($136K scholarship)
Rajdeep is very knowledgeable about what the schools are looking for and he directed me to concentrate my application on the right factors. He fleshed out my history and steered me into directions that I would not have chosen myself.
