1. Application Strategy & Story Formation

To kick off the process, EdElevate mentors try to understand and evaluate your credentials holistically, taking into account your academic and professional experience, standardised test scores, scope for scholarships, among other things.

 As your story is unique, so should be your approach. Should you start early to target scholarships or spend more time on profile building to strengthen your profile? Under application strategy, we evaluate your goals and help you make the optimum choice. For example, we check if the universities you have in mind align with your profile and goals, through our Brainstorming and Strategy Sessions. We help devise a comprehensive strategy for your application process that will aid you in communicating your distinctive story with clarity.

 All of this is essential as it enables us to set a starting point for the applications and devise a strategy customised for you.

2. Profile Building and Activity Resume

With a blend of self-introspection and brainstorming, EdElevate helps you achieve a robust and balanced profile. A well-rounded profile can be your biggest asset. University admissions committees are on the lookout for candidates who have not only excelled academically and professionally, but have also engaged in extracurricular and community work. With our Gap Identifier Approach, EdElevate will help you identify and bridge the gaps in your candidature by understanding your areas of interests, hobbies, awards and achievements etc., and advising relevant activities for upskilling.

 A crucial impact of profile building will be on your activities profile. We will guide you on how you can put your best foot forward by including the achievements and accomplishments that will help you make the best impact, capturing your unique journey and enhancing your suitability for top UG programs. As this is also a prioritising exercise, we make sure that you do not miss out on any crucial experience and make the best use of the opportunity.

3. University Shortlisting

To set you up for success from the get go, creating a comprehensive list of universities that will be the ‘perfect fitment’ for you is the next step after profile building. With our unique shortlisting approach, we not only take your preferences and profile elements like test scores, location preferences, major of interest, budget, and many other factors into account, but also achieve a balanced shortlist by going beyond the conventional university rankings, and evaluating the ecosystem as a whole.

With our categorisation of universities into Ambitious, Moderate, and Safe, you can be rest assured your university shortlist will be a balance of dream and safe schools, geared to maximise your chances of admission.

4. Essay brainstorming, review & editing

Picking up your story that we achieved through profile building, we will brainstorm with you to achieve compelling narratives that will help you stand out and make the cut to top universities.

Be it the Common Application, UC Application, UCAS, Coalition Application, or any other, we believe that essays are your thinking test, and not a writing test. You have to live in your essays, your story should be unique, and worth reading. Our collaborative approach, with introspection, brainstorming, and expert structural analysis, will aid you in thinking in a structured manner and help us tailor-make winning essays. Using your thoughts, our expertise and research, we zero down on your goals that work best for your candidature, and customise essays according to specific university ecosystems.

And ofcourse, we provide complete support in editing and polishing essays to convey your thoughts in a clear and concise way, before you submit the final drafts.

5. LOR Guidance

To enhance your application, a good Letter of Recommendation can be invaluable. We help you identify the best suited referees (counsellor and teachers) and chart out the strategy to reach out to them. If your school does not have a school counsellor, we also help you evaluate alternative referees. Get the format and structure right through our samples and guides. Our mentors will guide you regarding the noteworthy skills and experiences to highlight in your recommendation and corroborate your accomplishments.

6. Interview Preparation

A few top universities in the US, like Harvard, Northwestern, University of Pennsylvania, Dartmouth, Princeton, Yale, among others, have an evaluative interview as a part of the admissions process. If you have reached this stage, congratulations on getting the interview call! This is a reinforcement that the admissions committee is definitely interested in your profile and this is your chance to impress them. We will prepare you thoroughly with EdElevate’s tips, guides, and time-tested strategies on how to be successful. We will guide you on how to not get intimidated by the process and develop a structured thought process, helping you retain your calmness quotient even in the toughest situations. Through our interview preparation session, we craft narratives, build a structured thought process, and provide you tips to ace the interview. And through our mock sessions, we perfect your approach to give you an edge.

What’s more, we will also discuss questions that you can ask the admissions committee about their programs and how to follow-up post the interview.

7. Waitlist Strategy

Once your application is evaluated, there are four possible outcomes- Acceptance (Great!), Rejection (No worries, you have other options), Deferred to another round of admissions, and Waitlist (Probably the most frustrating zone of them all). Being waitlisted does not mean that it is an official rejection. Understandably, you may now have to wait longer than anticipated but it does mean that the admissions committee is interested in your profile. EdElevate experts encourage and support you in getting off the waitlist, help you craft a robust waitlist letter reiterating your interest in the university, and help you connect with existing students or alumni.

8. Visa Guidance

F-1 visa for US and study permit for other countries is the final hurdle before you can fly off to your dream destination and start your journey. Our end-to-end support has you covered.

We provide you a comprehensive checklist of all the documentation you need to secure a visa. Our experts will help you get your critical accompanying and financial documentation in line to demonstrate adequate finances to cover tuition and living expenses. Right financial planning is key!

What’s more, our counsellors will review your forms to ensure that we leave no stone unturned and everything is in order.

Lastly, but most importantly, we will also prepare you thoroughly for the interview in the US study visa process. Our mentors will brainstorm with you, discuss FAQs, and hold mock sessions to guide you through the final step.

Is this right for you?


Objectively, a good GRE/GMAT score is one that is competitive with the average scores of admitted students in your desired program. However, to know if your GRE/GMAT is high enough, you have to take into account other aspects of your profile. If your CGPA is below average and you have little or no professional experience, then a high GRE/GMAT score can help you offset the other gaps in your profile. On the other hand, if you have a high CGPA and have garnered extensive professional experience, then even average GRE and GMAT scores may be fine for you. (Link to Retaking the GMAT blog)

Opting for a STEM program in the US can provide students with a wide range of opportunities and advantages, making it a popular and rewarding choice. Choosing a STEM program not only opens up more research and career opportunities, but also means that you will be eligible for an additional STEM Optional Practical Training period to work in the US for an additional 24 months, for a total of 36 months (3 years).

Simply put, this depends on the specific requirements of the program you are choosing to apply for. 

TOEFL is great if you want to take up a program only in the United States. IELTS works here too but is more widely accepted in countries like Australia, UK, Canada for example.

When determining which exam to take, it’s crucial to take into account the criteria set by the institution or organization you are applying to. Some organizations may accept either exam, while others may only accept one. Both exams are acknowledged and valued, and selecting the appropriate one for you is dependent on your personal circumstances and objectives.

Some top universities also offer waivers based on academic background and profile. Most significantly, top B-schools offer English Language proficiency waivers if you have completed your undergraduate program with English as the official language for instruction. Read more..
