Applications : When To Start


In this section, I am going to discuss few reasons why starting early is the best practice for admissions.


Firstly, our student’s who were keen on getting admit at top universities for Fall 2019, started working with us from January 2018 itself.

As a result, we got enough time to build there profile & created right set of Universities.

Secondly, we started working on essays at a very early stage and were able to bring up a strong application.

Thirdly and most importantly, we were prepared for the application deadlines at an early stage.



Therefore, starting early will give you time to connect with relevant students on LinkedIn.

In other words, it is one of the key steps in the application process.

In conclusion, we hope you have understood the timeline & other important aspects of the applications.
