Our student who were keen on getting admit to top universities for 2020, started in Jan 2019

We got enough time to build there profile.

We created best set of Portfolio of Universities and started working on the essays at a very early stage.

Starting early and building your profile by connecting with relevant  students is one of the key steps.

My students was invited for a party. However, he was’t feeling well, so he decided against it.

Secondly, my student is a very nice guy. He took us out for a campus dinner, for instance. Thirdly, I enjoy his company because he always take me to a campus tour. He tried really hard to entertain me. Similarly, he put all his effort in dinner. My student pushed me. As a result, I fell over. She is not found of rain. However, I do like it. Now I am tired. Therefore, I am going to my dorm. In Conclusion. I am letting my staff go. In other words, they are fired. He has essay to share, but nobody listens. But the essay is plagiarized. And he knows it will not work.

Arvind has essay to share. But nobody listens. He was happy with his essay because of his editor. Earlier he was angry because he only had one draft which was not good.
