Counselled and Guided Students from Schools, Colleges and Universities
I undertook career guidance advice from Dr. Swati A Mishra while I was in my first year of BSc Life Sciences from Hansraj College, University of Delhi. She helped me identify my career goals and pathways. Under her able guidance and profile building exercise, I got admission to the prestigious King’s College London, UK, where I did MSc in Immunology. Then again she guided me for PhD in Immunology from the University of Paris, France. Now I am working with National Institute of Health, USA. Dr. Mishra has been a mentor and guide throughout my journey. I strongly recommend services offered by Go Career Guru and especially the profile building exercise, it’s very well developed and has helped me a lot for achieving my career aspirations.

Started taking advice from Dr. Swati Mishra and her team of experts about 15 months before my intended month of entry. The entire process, from the counselling sessions to streamlining of the SOP, LOR submissions etc was well coordinated. Throughout the application process, the team pushes you to make every aspect of the application perfect. Overall, the approach was very professional and practical. Prior to the one-on-one counselling sessions, I had a brief interaction on possible career options to explore the domain I wished for. The team is highly responsive and goes out of their way to help you. I highly recommend Career Guru to any student aspiring to get into top institutions. I got offers from SOAS – University of London, LSE, Edinburgh among other universities. I finally joined LSE and graduated with an MSc in Politics and Communication.
Under the able guidance of Professor Swati Mishra, my vision to Study Abroad has taken shape. I made it through top ranked universities in UK like, SOAS, University of Glasgow, Leeds University. I also was able to bag a number of Scholarships worth almost 75% to cover my tuition fee. Glad that I was in such good hands. I strongly recommend the Team. They are best there is in the Indian market.
Abhishek has helped me with improving my SAT score by 250 points, he has also helped me in writing and formatting essays for the college. Apart from that I got a lot of guidance about universities which I never knew before. He also helped me get job in University once I came to Northeastern University. In Boston he was working like a local guardian to me, if I have any issues I know whom to contact for solving those problems. Strongly recommend.
For me who has no one in family ever been to USA getting admission to US university seems like an arduous and impossible task before we came in touch with Abhishek. He helped me from preparing for SAT to getting accommodation after I got admission. He helped me in all the steps of the process and continue to help with internship search using his networks of contacts in USA. I got admission in 6 schools out of 7 I applied, I got scholarship from 3 Universities. Currently, I am studying at University of Buffalo that offered me $48,000 scholarship.
